"Its actually so telling of someones' level of intelligence when they repeatedly respond erratically" - ad hominem, obviously you would go there since you've ran out of "arguments"
"to actual points" You've posted nothing but blabbering basic level investment terms without actually having any knowledge of what they mean. You expect to full a 4th year Economics student with this absolute bs you are pulling out?
"Typical low IQ insult" yes you are very low IQ
"logical CBA and ROI incentives" hahahaha, you went to a three month class and you suddenly became an expert? have you invested 20$ on bitcoin and now feel like the big stonker? The incentives are and always will be clear, squeeze out money from a new title and eventually drop it and drop the people that made you that money under the bus. It's a repetitive pattern that goes way back. Here's a simple example, the 2008 crash. You want esports examples? HotS, CSGO. I never said they are doing something impractical and non-beneficial. I specifically stated the absolute FACT they are doing something UNETHICAL. But you wouldn't know the difference you absolute autist.
Unless you are willing to give me examples where such strategies benefited the entire market instead of the few sponsors and shareholders of the orgs then your braindead, hollow argument is inadmissable. Tell me ONE GAME where the very thing I stated would happen HASN'T happened in NA. Any game other than LoL. I'm waiting and I will be waiting 'til the end of time because you can't come up with one.
Unlike me, where I came up with 8 notable esports titles that this very bubble system has come to fruition to, just from the top of my head.
" Like you're using your own confusion as a way to say that what I was saying doesn't make sense, when you legitimately just cant string sentences together properly. Reading comprehension folks. What a logical fallacy here." blahblahblah more ad homindem, the loser's tool
"You still completely failed to understand what I was saying about risk and longevity" Let me tell you about risk. The investors have 0 risk. The ones who have risk are the athletes who invest their time and work effort in the game even though they will be thrown under the bus once the game loses the hype. Much like in 2008, the bankers were making profit out of people's naivity and belief that they deserved a home. Much like the players here believe they deserve a career.
It's not my problem you still can't understand that my whole point wasn't about investors losing their money, I don't give a fuck about them. It's about them giving false notions that this is an unlimited market and seducing esports athletes into making them short tem revenue, and then ditching them.
" Imagine asking me to type properly when your entire paragraph is riddled with errors on every level of basic English" Not only am I not obligated to know perfect English, since I doubt you know any other language, but I actually do and I challenge you to even quote one grammatical error I've made. Tip: You can't, I probably know better English than your redneck looking ass.
"You still don't know the difference between an investor and a shareholder" As long as a company has gone public, there is no difference. Buying shares is an investment you dummy. If you deny this simple fact not only are you making shit up on the spot but you also prove to be an uneducated and economically illiterate bullshit spouter.
"You somehow misinterpreted what I said" Like you misinterpreted everything I've said.
"Anyway, Serenity clearly proved they aren't some Tier 5 org"
They are not a tier 5 org, they are a tier 5 team. They only beat EG and took a map off Sentinels. You know what else they've achieved? Losing 0-2 to ez5 and 0-2 to NeverDone. They have also lost to Snowmen (?), Teal Seam. They've also never competed in tier1 tournaments. Their best result against a real team was when they took a map off Sentinels.
"Who is even talking about "Matching CSGO"???" You are gonna have to match games like CSGO and LoL if you are going to invest 5-6 times the amount people invest in those games.
You do realize that a return to investment is literally irrelevant to what will happen to the players right? You think this is the first time employers will leave their workforce high and dry just so they don't lose on their investment?
" Why in gods name would a shareholder be looking at PRIZE POOLS for a scene to determine their level of involvement? LOL OF COURSE IM TALKING ABOUT VIEWERSHIP. That is not a metric we are looking at idk why tf you're confused. Wait I know why. Lmfao. This means that there is intention for stability and longevity when sponsors and shareholders are involved, which is always clearly known depending on the org."
So what was your metric? Are you willing to disclose the inner workings of your great algorithm? Oh wait, there was no metric, you were just spouting shit hoping you would sound smart enough for people to not notice how much of an illiterate idiot you are. FOUR replies in and the only explanation you've given for your "metric" is just "a couple thousand". You god damn imbecile. A couple thousand what? Dineros? A couple thousand what? Are you going to answer or just insult me again and prove you have nothing to answer with?
"You were very excited to shit on a new roster's results, period." This roster ain't going anywhere and as much as I appreciate ALEKSANDR and Temperature they don't deserve the EG tag.
"You were visibly excited to see this scene fail, period" Oh no, I'm visibly excited to see CSGO vol2 happen again and again in NA. Just love watching idiots fall for the same shit over and over again. The definition of insanity.
"This is an objective observation." lmao yeah, because you can be objective over sentiment that was WRITTEN, you absolute dumbass. Other than an expert hedge fund manager are you also a psychologist and a renowned glossologist? Fuck outta here
"And it was apparent to everyone in this thread, not just me wildly misinterpreting you." It was apparent to a bunch of idiots who thought I was shitting on their beloved youtubers like Hiko and TenZ.
"So you're still the odd one out here. Have a nice life. Sike. Fuck off loser." Oh no, how will I ever recover.
Anyway, this was easy. Goodnight, inferior degenerate.
