My CSGO gambling addiction story. (Lost +50 000 dollars in a span of 5 years, got kicked out of my home and more)
I'm posting this story so people won't hopefully make same mistakes i did. I'm telling my story how i lost +$50 000 in a span of 5 years to CSGO gambling casinos and how in the progress i ruined myself completely. This post will be long but keep in mind that it keeps 5 years of my life inside of it. Before we go any further in this post, i want to dress one thing up: CSGO is a videogame and the game has different "paintings" for all the guns in the game you can buy. Every skin has some form of value tied on it and you can deposit this skins to csgo gambling sites to play on there. The skin prices can vary from + 0.01 up to +$10000 and more. The casinos are pretty much same as normal digital casinos but the deposit/withdraw method is just different. Wanted to clear this out of the way so people won't be confused in case you have never heard about CSGO gambling. Now let's get in to the story. After i turned 18, i started playing CSGO here and there. One day one of my friend hopped online to play with me and he was really hyped since he had just won +$500 in skins from one of the csgo gambling sites. After we played some time i asked him more about the site where he gambled and at night, i logged in. Deposited $10 skin and started to test out the site. Somehow with "beginners luck" i managed to get up to $200 playing roulette and got some skins to myself. I felt like i was in top of the world after winning first time ever on gambling in general. After my first win I started to visit the same site here and there trying to repeat actions of my first session: deposit 5 -10 dollar items and try to get out something more expensive. At that point the gambling was just all for fun like it's supposed to be. I really didn't care if i lost 10 dollar item if i had good time in the session. I played this way for around a year until i just for some stupid reason decided to start upping a bit my deposits so i could do a bit bigger bets to bring more excitement to the gambling sessions. With that being said, my casual deposits started to be around 25 dollars from that point every time i decided to go try my luck. I started doing bigger bets and sometimes i won but more often i just lost my deposits in a matter of minutes. After loosing, i just continued to watch other people betting on roulette thinking what i would have bet on now if i still had balance left. It sounds stupid i know, but sometimes it is just fun to watch other people betting. As the time went on, i found myself gambling more and more often than what i was used to in the past. It all started trying my luck out once in a week, but now it was a daily thing. I started usually my mornings by first depositing to the gambling site before even making a coffee or anything just so i could go straight in action right after my morning coffee/cigarette. I started to spend all my time in gambling sites instead of doing anything else. If i won big, i withdrew and just continued to chat with other bettors and watch other people betting and if i lost my money, i just did the same thing. I guess the reason was because i had nothing else to do. At the time i was still in school, but after that i usually just went back home to wait next day to arrive. All my IRL friends had moved on from videogames and i really didn't have anyone to hang out with after school since i had to move other town to study. I guess the loneliness/boredom was a big factor why i started doing this. At one night i was drunk and got an idea to try out my luck once again since the gambling site i mainly used had opened straight card deposits. This time i decided to do a "big" deposit so i could have some fun while i was drinking. I deposited 100 dollars and tought this deposit would last long. I lost it instantly by accidentally pressing "max" button instead of "2x" button that would have put my 1 dollar bet to 2 dollars for that round. 100 dollars on green and "pufff" it was gone. The session lasted like 15 seconds. I was furious about it so i did first time the worst thing you can do which is the good old RE-Deposit. I re-deposited 200 dollars this time thinking that i could maybe get my 100 dollars back that i accidentally maxed on green. As you may guess, it really wasn't my night and i just somehow lost all the sense of the amounts i was betting. Also since i had redeposited once, it wasn't a problem anymore to do it agen. I kept rage betting trough out the night, until my bank card started to decline the transactions. I didn't think about this too much, i just tought there was some problems in the bank's end and went to sleep. At the morning i woke up on hangover and then i remembered things getting wild last night. I tought i lost maybe like 400-600 dollars but well things was a bit worse. I went to check my bank account and i had lost 2500 dollars in earlier night. Keep in mind, i was used to deposit MAX 25 dollars in a day before that. First time ever i felt like i just wanted to throw up and i felt embarrassed for depositing that much. Some people would call it "gamblers guilt". I decided to try take a break from gambling but i found that it was actually lot harder to do than what i thought since i had gotten used to spend all my time on gambling sites betting or watching other people bet. My break lasted 3 days until i was back at betting. This time things were different. Before my massive loss i never re-deposited if i lost my money. I always tought it would just not be worth it. My allowance had been 25 dollars for a day really long time but now that line started to fade since i had already "broke that rule". Now i kept putting 25 dollar deposits in and if i lost my money, i would just re-deposit so i can keep gambling. 25 dollars may not be much, but when you deposit that amount x15 times in a day in the spirit of "re-deposit" it really starts to burn a hole in your pocket. At some point i got tired of redepositing again and again so i started to deposit more at once. This is where the tilt betting and "chasing your losses" became kinda new normal if the session was really bad. I lost sense value of money every time i logged in to casino try my luck. The way i funded my gambling addiction was "savings" account. Just before i moved to new town to study, one of my relative family members i never really got to know passed away and portion of her fortune was given to me, which was ruffly around 35000 dollars. Before i gambled, i never really used this money to anything. It just was there in case if "everything else fails". This money was supposed to be my lifeline trough out the studying time (3 years) so i could focus mainly on school without any worries about income. To top that off, my government actually paid my rent since i was studying, so that 35k pretty much just was there and also getting the education here is free so there were no payments towards it. As you may already guess, i used that account only to feed my gambling habits and that way i was able to deposit hefty amounts if i decided to go that route. Since i had pretty much no limits anymore, things started to get heated as the time went on. This was last year in the school so i could get my degree and shit really hit the fan. The amounts i started to gamble was way out of my understanding. Usually that normal 50-100 dollar depo would be at the end of the night around +500 or more dollars since i kept redepositing all the time if i was out of balance. I kept doing this every day with some wins and some losses until common thing called losing streak hit me big time. I started losing more and more every single day with no moments on getting profit. Everyday there was fuck ton of redeposits with no withdraws back. I didn't keep any count anymore and as you may guess, the savings account was just fading away faster and faster every single day until short after my graduation the day finally came: i was broke. After i checked all my bank statements, the truth was revealed: In the span of 3 years, i was negative profit of around 30 000 dollars. Not to even mention that on my first year of school i only did max 10 dollar deposits so most of that had been racked up in 2 years. 5000 from 35000 was used to car repairs and other necessary bills, rest was gambled away. After i went fully broke, my government started to give me assistance payments witch was around 1100 dollars in a month. This money was supposed to go on rent and other bills, but as you may guess i started using this money to gamble. After i lost heavy portion of the money, i was usually able to just pay a fraction of bills away that i had on my table for each month. This caused me to later on completely lose my credit score. I also remember getting my electricity get taken off 4-5 times since i wasnt able to pay the bill. Also after all i lost my apartment since i wasn't able to pay my rent because my addiction had taken over really bad and i gambled away everything i got. I was forced to move out and i moved in to my family member house. Luckily he had been asking me for years to be his "roommate" so i didn't have to reveal to him that i actually lost my home. Shortly after moving to my family member, i got my first job and i tought this would be the moment where i will focus on fixing my life up: pay all my debts away and get my credit score back, Save some money and start again. It was nice plan but it didn't really go well. The more i got from the job, the more i deposited away and i was back to my old habits, even after losing my home +30 000 in 2years. I remember one specific moment from the time i was at my old job: i got +1200 dollars from past 2 weeks of working at 3:00am in to my bank account. When i left my house at 7:30am to go the job, i didn't have enough money to put gas in my tank ( 5 dollars) so i had to walk 6 miles in a full blown rain to my job. i paid rent 400 dollars, rest was gambled away before my shift for the "salary day " even started. It really made me wonder while i was walking there that why im doing this. Im literally throwing everything i get handed over away and it really was the moment where i realised i have to look in the mirror. It's not normal to blow your whole salary away at the same morning you get it before you even head out to work. After that moment, i started trying to take breaks from gambling more ofter. There were times where i went 5-7 days without it and then i came back to do that all over again but my losses were now way smaller than what they used to be. I lost only 200-400 dollars each month with some profit months, witch was huge milestone to me. Now i actually had usually some money left on my account until new salary day arrived. Ofcourse losing that much in a month is still alot but to compare it to my old habits, i take it more than happily. With all this being said, you may now think how im doing right now and how do i feel after losing my home | credit score and + 50 000dollars in 5 years? If im being fully honest, i have mixed feelings about it. Ofcourse it's sad to think how i much i fucked up but at the same time i'm kind of happy that this all happened. The reason why im happy is because i can take this all as a lesson. I maybe lost everything i had and ruined myself in the process but at the same time, im only 24 years old now. I can still build it all back and one day i can look back in this era and laugh about how fucking stupid i was when i was younger. On the other hand, the thing im most sad about is when i meet my friends and see how good they are doing. Don't get me wrong, im more than happy to see my friends doing good but it really makes you guestion how i would i be doing now if i never entered to csgo gambling casino? Almost all my friends have good jobs, own homes they are paying mortage for so they can one day own it, nice cars and beatiful girlfriends/ wives and some people even have kids and familys. And when i watch back to past 5 years, i literally had all that right from the start in my hands and i just threw it all away. When they were building it all for themselfs, i was in the meantime watching my PC screen and throwing it all away. Kinda ironic when you think about. Also what i hate is the way how i treated some people when i was at worst of my gambling era. I lost some friends in the process since i never showed up anywhere when they asked me to join them to do something in weekends and also i lost a girl i really cared about since i was too busy on placing bets on digital casino. To sum it all up, i really dont care about the money i lost, I mostly hate how i chanced as a person and how i didn't really give a fuck about anyone around me when i was too focused on nonstop betting. One day i will have enough guts to ask to meet up with this girl and explain why i was the way i was when we had our thing going on. Gambling addiction is really hard thing to explain to someone who has never went it trough themselfs/ seen someone close to them to go trough with it, but i'll try my best to reveal him everything that i have told here now publically. She may just tell me to fuck off but atleast i can be happy when i know that finally she knows the truth of everything i was hiding when we had our thing going on. Other than that im doing kind of fine. I moved out from my family member house to own home awhile ago. I fucked up yesterday again, i gambled 250 dollars away in a span of couple hours but i left it on there. Instead of putting more money in, i decided that this week i will call my bank provider and take away online payments in general from my bank card. This way i can still use the card in stores and so on but i can't pay anything online. If i have any payments i have to get done via online, ill just go to ATM and take the amount in cash, then give it to my older brother and he will pay it from his account. I know this may sound really extreme way to solve all this, but this way im literally banning myself from every fucking digital casino there is. It is clear to me that im a problem gambler and i really can't control myself if i face a losing streak. It just too hard to accept it and walk away and ill keep going until i hit rock bottom witch really isn't good escpecially since i lost my job due to COVID and i still have around 10 000 dollars in debts gathered to myself when i was too busy gambling everything i had away. One day im able to pay it all back and get my credit score back but right now, i just need to accept how things are going and move with what i have witch really isn't much. With all this being said, i really hope this story of life from past 5 years can make some kind of impact to you. If you find yourself casually betting more away than what you first tought you would play/ betting more than you can REALLY afford, please seek some help from friends, family members around you. Don't ruin everything you have same way as i did because let me fucking tell you, it really isn't worth it. Thanks for reading.
M 24 Tunisia - Perfectionist, fast typer, talkative, anti-ghoster, hardcore listener, purely platonic, and sarcastic. [CLICK FOR MORE - LONG] ^_^
Oh, hello there Redditors! I bet that a good number of you will question where the heck is Tunisia. I would define it as a beautiful touristic country in North Africa, and guess what; you are welcome anytime here! :3 It was so hard to choose a few keywords that best define me, but I will try to develop them through the next paragraphs. Also, I will mention some of my interests and try to sell myself in the best possible way. I am not good at marketing though, I had some really bad grades in that subject at high school. :( Okay, I would define myself as a perfectionist, therefore this post will take me ages to prepare. I have been thinking a lot about posting here, and since sending DMs didn't work out well, here I am writing a post (that will probably be long) just a few hours before an important meeting with my professor. So, as the title says, I am a fast typer (100 WPM on NitroType - Beat that!) and a talkative person, therefore you will be having someone on the other side of the communication channel (Some communication engineering background here) that will not make you bored, at least "bored" in my own definition. And if I am online, I will answer you within seconds (or minutes). Many people here state that they won't ghost you, and then they end up by doing so, or even worse not answering your request. I struggled a lot to make few connections here because I was dedicated to sending many requests, but I will tell you something: I am a perfectionist (again!), thus, physically I can't help myself seeing that unanswered message hanging in my Reddit Chat. So yeah, I genuinely promise that no ghosting will come from my part, at least. It's true that I am talkative, but I would define myself as a hardcore listener if you need to venture. I really appreciate helping people (without waiting for anything in return) and I will be all ears to listen to your problems, and absolutely make my best to be there for you, emotionally at least, or physically if possible but I don't think there are many Tunisians here. I had to mention purely platonic since the letter M is not much appreciated here. I am here to make new friends, hence the name of the subreddit, and I am not intending to ask for more than a decent FRIENDSHIP, or even more (*winks* wait for it), BEST FRIENDSHIP, or even more (*winks again* wait for it), MEGA BEST FRIENDSHIP. I am open to all genders, sexualities, races and ages (don't call me a pedophile) because I appreciate humans as they are. I am open-minded and do not get triggered easily, so feel free to talk about whatever you want. I won't develop the sarcasm part, because duh, it's sarcasm - how can you develop on that? But, I will make sure that my jokes won't offend you or make you uncomfortable. I will go briefly on my interests. I like: • Football (hence the FCB in my name (FCB for FaCeBook not for FC Barcelona :P), and as Americans call it, soccer... IT'S NOT SOCCER!) • Video games (I am open to suggestions, but I mainly play League of Legends, CSGO, PES2020, Apex Legends..., just free games because being poor is popular in 2020) • Reading (My goal for this year is to read 24 books - a book every two weeks. Would you join me in that? I am open to all genres and I have a GoodReads readlist) • Anime (Another dweeb? Currently watching JOJO. My favorite anime is HxH (How typical?) and my anime crush is Violet Evergarden. Oh My! ♥ - I also have a MyAnimeList watchlist) • Movies (Gotta finish that list of All Time TOP Rated 250 movies on IMDb. Watched Godfather this week so, I am almost there, just 249 movies to go - JK Rowling, I mean JK Obviously) • TV Shows (Better Call Aziz? Oh, hell yeah! If we get along, we can watch a show together maybe? 1 episode per day or better! 1 season per night) • Music (I LIKE EVERYTHING, as long as it doesn't hurt my ears -.-; And we can share our music tastes on Discord if you want) • Traveling (I really adore traveling. I have gone to seven countries so far, and I can spend days talking about them because each one has its own story and theme.) • Memes (What is better than someone who likes memes? Someone who makes memes. I used to make a lot of memes in the past. Wanna make memes together?) • Programming/ Coding (This is a great passion of mine, and I am willing to introduce you to competitive programming if you are interested - Gotta share those C++ vibes!) • Photography (I took a close-up picture of a tiger, and a selfie with a lion. Don't believe me? DM me to find out :D) • Graphic Design& Video Editing (I do this as a hobby. I learned Photoshop and Illustrator for images and Vegas Pro for videos, and I just enjoy editing stuff from time to time) • Languages (I would say that I speak three languages fluently: Arabic, French and English. And I am currently learning Spanish, so hola a todas y todos! Soy Juan - 101 problems of learning by heart) • Playing Piano (You'll be saying how the heck are you doing all of this? I would say, well you can eliminate this one because I have not played for a while, but I am willing to go back, one day, hopefully. So let's just keep it there) Okay, that was NOT BRIEF at all; but I promise if that didn't interest you, I still have more in my pocket. I just can't write about everything, right? The thing is that I don't put 100% in one passion, but I would rather put 5% for each of one, so it's slow, but it's much. And, also I change from hobbies from time to time, and thus I can discover new hobbies and extend on the old ones. I still have a lot to talk about, but I guess let's keep the rest for a private chat. Also, if you are interested in a productive friendship, I will be your best partner. I am a good motivator, and I appreciate doing stuff with someone else because that keeps my motivation up! There is a cool mobile app that we can use for this, it's called HabitShare. Okay, this was long for sure, and for those who made it here, thank you for your time and effort in reading this. I really appreciate that. Other than that, (and I think I should have put this in the beginning), I want to mention that I am an overly attached person, so if I happen to like you and enjoy your company, I will become vulnerable to you. So please make sure you don't ghost me just like that! PS: Omg! It's so hard to click on that POST button. I can't help editing and re-editing but screw this, I have a meeting soon and I need to prepare it. Cya folks! ^_^

[Effort] /r/LivestreamFail Weighs in on How SJW and PC Culture is Sucking the Personality Out of GDQ Speed-running Streams
For those who don’t know, the “video game live streaming community” is upset because a speed-running charity organization by the name of GDQ recently banned an emote in their stream chat. The emote in question was from a streamer called Dansgaming and it depicted a bearded man with breasts and womanly hair. Whenever a transwoman going by the name of Proto was on screen, this emote would be spammed in a clearly transphobic manner. Seems fairly reasonable to want such an emote banned in your chat right? Let’s see what /LivestreamFail thinks
(Comment links to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcBbE3t6cLA) So this brave commentator is lamenting the bygone era where people playing video games really fast could make jokes with the word ni**er as the punchline. Truly a sad state of affairs, but why did such a fate come to be? This redditor has the answer
Exactly! Where am I supposed to find personality in a stream about people playing video games really fast when they can’t even say ni__er! That’s the issue here! But wait, maybe there’s something more nefarious going on here. Maybe it’s the SJW PC culture that is responsible for this cruel restriction on “personality.”
He most certainly isn’t wrong! SJWs are the reason video games are self-censoring the tits and ass out of games that I hoped to jerk off to later! Grr! How come SJWs always ruin my orgasms like that!! ---BONUS DISCUSSION--- Here is a reasonable comment explaining how Twitch chat is constantly bigoted with emotes
“I see absolutely no difference between a transwoman and a man in a dress.” I gotta tell you, I could go on all night folks. This thread just keeps giving and giving. The bottom line is, /LivestreamFail is made extremely uncomfortable by the existence of trans people and they desperately want Twitch chat to have the ability to express that discomfort without restriction. Sometimes in the name of FREEDOM OF SPEECH, and other times in the name just flat out hating trans people. Boy howdy do I love the Twitch streaming community.
[Long] Here is the full transcript of Northern Gaming CEO Mack's AMA, hosted on the Subreddit Discord!
Note: Questions and answers were copied directly from the AMA, so you may see typos and emojis that turned into text artifacts. Here's the link to the Subreddit Discord: https://discord.gg/rocketleague
About Mack Mack is the Chief Executive Officer of Northern Gaming, the Season 3 RLCS Champions. Northern Gaming is a Canadian-based organization, with teams in games such as Overwatch and World of Warcraft. Mack has been crucial for Northern Gaming in achieving its respected place among other organizations since it was founded in May 2016. This AMA occurred after it was revealed that the team of Remkoe, Maestro, and Deevo had been released from Northern Gaming to join Team EnVyUs. Mack's Twitter: https://twitter.com/Mack_Maring NG's Twitter: https://twitter.com/Northern_GG
Does Northern Gaming have any plans to pick up a new team in the near future? We answered this in our post, but yes. 'Near Future' not as much, but we will be at S4 LAN and watching and go from there.
Does rocket league matter? Does anything? <:FeelsCringeMan:303254400015663114>
If you could talk to yourself from the past, what words of advice would you give? I was having this conversation with my IRL Best Friend yesterday --- if I could go back a year with all the knowledge I have now, Northern Gaming would be in a completely different world. This is a very unique, fast paced market and there is no time for mistakes. I've learned a lot along the way, and every day I learn more and more. I don't think I could tell myself just one thing, but if I HAD too? I'd probably remind myself to never forget what you love about eSports. It can be incredibly stressful, but watching my team with the RLCS, or seeing how happy they are with this transfer makes you feel a certain way which is indecsribable. It's hard, and it's a very personable industry when you work closely with people so often, but I think that appreciating your players and every moment with them is incredibly important.
Do you like pineapple on pizza? I get why people eat it, but no. Pineapple is good in a bowl, or grilled on a barbeque, but not on my delicious Bacon, Pepperoni & Jalapeno pizzas. :[
Do you think a hot dog is a sandwhich? Depends on how you eat it I guess 😏
Why did you pick NV rather than the other orgs? Honestly, I was really struggling between NV and another equally amazing North American organization. In the end, the other owner could tell I wasn't sure the best situation for the players, and he willingly stepped down from discussions. I narrowed it down from 10/12 - 2 because these organizations showed the most interest and were just the best orgs. I knew they couldn't go anywhere their new head honchos weren't passionate about them and the game, and EnVy was one of two that were.
Why not stick with the Team? We answered this in our original post --- but the tl;dr is I knew there was a better opportunity for them and I made it happen.
Does Sodapoppin actually do anything actively as an owner? Absolutely. Chance is pivotal in every move we make. He is a very busy guy, and he has a lot going on for himself being Sodapoppin as well as just living his own life, but Chance has always made it a priority to participate in the organization when he can/when it is needed. I deal with almost everything personally, but Chance is always in the loop and is our biggest piece for pushing and growing the organization. He's been a pleasure to work with, and I am blessed to have had him give me this opportunity in the first place -- without Chance, I wouldn't be here right now.
Why are you selling the team? it's easy money to keep them While that sentiment seems to be shared amongst everyone, that is actually quite false. The team was always "losing" us money and we end our adventures at a significant deficit. But with that comes the fact that it isn't always about money, it's about building this scene and helping these players build themselves into brands.
Mack what first go you looking at Rocket League? I was surprised that I was able to help Reunited (another former OW team) get involved briefly but I wanna know where you started. I actually got a lot of emails when we were taking public submissions for our team, and a lot of them were about Rocket League. We Dem Girlz stood out the most, so I took a leap with them! Looking back, it was one of the best decisions I made in eSports.
How are you today? Pretty good, quite a bittersweet day. BUT! The NHL Expansion Draft is tonight, so that's great 😄 -- How about yourself?
Do your parents support you playing Rocket League as a professional? I'm not a player, so no 😉 But as an owner of an organization, I was met with a lot of criticism as I dropped out of University (Pre-Law) to explore this. I don't think they fully support it, but they aren't against it either. It's not a topic of much conversation with my parents though my Mom has seemingly been a bit more interested and was happy about the RLCS win .^
test how dare you test in my AMA. 😉
What is your favorite team in rocket league, excluding yours? Denial's squad is up there 🇨🇦 but any team with Miztik or Turbo on it 😉
Are you moving away from rocket league or are you now on the look-out for new players? We will be back, just want a season off to watch the scene.
What's happened to everyone? STuff.
Why the rocket league esport scene? I just got a feeling when I was looking into it. I follow my gut, and that's why I am where I am today.
Does Northern Gaming have any plans to pick up a new team in the near future? Yes. Check our original release 😉
Best game other than Rocket League? I've played WoW for 12 years, I love League & Overwatch (when im not tilted) but PUBG has been my most recent binge-game. For all-time play ability it's going to be somewhere between NHL (I am a hockey nerd) and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 👀
Are you becoming part of EnvyUs or are they taking the roster off of your hands? No sir, I am still the owner of Northern Gaming! Though anyone working for NV is a pretty lucky person, I am more than happy with my situation!
Were EnvyUs the only org to approach the team? NV didn't approach the team, but no. There were a solid 10 or so good Orgs wanting them
Cats or dogs? I have both, I love both. Anyone who says they're a dog person hasn't met the right cat etc etc. 😄
Do you agree that with a big org like EnVyUs coming into the scene will pave the way for many other Tier 1 orgs to enter Rocket League? Not really, all the T1 orgs are already looking at it, they're coming regardless of this move
What do you think of Mockit? As an organization? We have no opinion. As a person? I don't know Luckey, but him making assumptions/comments about my team, and in general just the things I've seen about him and the interactions I've heard with him, I don't like him, and personally have no interest in ever doing business with him. I know the players made it abundantly clear they had no interest in playing with Mock-It and I would have never in a million years sent them there to begin with.
Is it raining money where you are? If it was, I'd be outside with a bucket. That would be nice.
What, from your perspective as CEO, makes Rocket League a different e-sports than other games? My biggest pitch with the game and my biggest thing about it, is how easy it is to watch and how fun it is to watch. It's super fast paced, it's CRAZY intense, the commentators are great and the analysts are equally as great (Gibbs and I have talked 1:1 once and he's a great guy) and overall it feels the closest to Sports, which I think is important. The community is also not toxic at all which is a HUGE breath of fresh air. Thanks for that guys.
What is your favorite meal? Buffalo Chicken Strips > Chicken Wings > Steak > Tacos.
Who is this doing this ama? ME.. d00d
What do u think your chances are for next season? 0% chance we win Season 4. It's bleak, but it is what it is.
Will you be playing in RLCS season 4 and 5? 5, possibly. 4, absolutely not.
Was this action/move have to do part because turbopolsa acted as a sub? Not at all. Turbo was a god at LAN and he was going to end up as a starter somewhere else. I had no intentions of moving Maestro ever, loved having him.
What was the second team you mentioned, and what was the deciding factor in chosing EnvyUS over the other team? I am not going to reveal the team name because I don't want to risk any future moves they may be interested in making. But, I chose NV because the other team backed out realizing I was conflicted over the two. Both were world class organizations and I knew the players would have loved either or, so there was nothing to help me make that decision; the other owner made my job a lot easier.
What are your thoughts on RL as an esport? Will it, in your opinion, have the same sustainability and growth as LoL or CSGO? I love it. I love how fast paced it is, how easy it is to watch, and how much skill actually goes into the games. I don't know if it will grow to the CS:GO/LoL levels right now, but I think it has potential to be the most watched eSport in the world one day due to it's parallels with Soccer (sorry I'm NA forgive me) and how it would be great for even your casual fan who doesn't play video games to watch unlike a relatively confusing LoL and a violent (I love it but some people, ya know) CS:GO
How has the Rocket League community changed in your eyes over time? I really like this community, you guys rock. I don't think it's changed much, just the passion behind the players has grown.
Why did you get into rocket league esports in the first place? Answered in a question above; but because I saw massive potential and a great roster. I just felt it was right.
Can you see someone showing up to rlcs and trying to play with the Joy-Cons? hue? 😕
How's your day been? Busy! Thanks for asking .^ -- how about yours? 😃
When and why did you decide to become their CEO? I always have been a visionary for business since I was 15 or 16. About a year and a half ago I started looking into eSports and felt it was a great scene where I could be impactful on a large scale and affect millions of people, from players to fans alike, creating a better experience. So, I started Northern Gaming, and here we are!
Do you think other competitive orgs will be following suit? Yes. Very soon.
Will you ever move to other games, like LoL? I hope to; but we need to either affiliate with BIG $ or a Sports Team. I've been trying to find the latter for a while but it's very difficult. We plan on doing smaller scale expansion soon, and OWL and LCS are both big end game plans.
Are you keeping turbo on the roster? He is going to be looking for a starter position somewhere else
What size is turbo's jersey MEANT to be? Medium. Did you see him @ LAN? He owned! 😻
Is Turbo still part of Northern Gaming? Even though he is a sub No, we have no RL players.
What, in your opinion is your biggest achievement in e-sports and why? Winning the RLCS S3. It was our first world championship victory, and it was done with a sub. I'll remember that forever. It was my happiest moment as NG CEO. Second would be watching our NG WoW team at Blizzcon, that was surreal to hear a crowd cheer live for my team... insane.
You said on twitter that NG will be entering into RLCS season 5. Why not 4? Do you have any plans in the meantime? ie. DreamHack/Summer Series/NBC tourney teams? I'm really interested in this NBC thing, I am going to do some research on that this weekend. But Season 4 feels too rushed, we want to make sure we get the right group.
Are you surprised by the Growth of RL Esports so far, particulary RLCS, as it was 1 year ago the Grand Finals were close to being held with a $50,000 prize pool? I am not surprised at all, and I expect it to only continue.
What do you think about the recent announcement of NBC doing a rocket league tournament? I'm really interested, I'll try to get involved somehow.
Were you confident in buying the team, and how will you manage your team once they start facing other teams that are much better? As in how would you make sure they won't get demoralized/ quit. I make sure I know the type of people I'm signing beyond their abilities in-game. I will be sure to pick up players who feel like they have something to prove when they lose, instead of being discouraged. Look at what 3rd place finishes did to this team, it pushed them to go above and beyond and win it all.
How did you guys come up with the name Northern Gaming? I came up with it because I wanted it to feel Canadian-esque without ostracizing the rest of the world. We are a North American organization (Canadian) so Northern could mean more than JUST Canada. Europe is also considered to be 'Northern' so I figured it was something that resonated with our country without shunning the rest of the world and locking us in one place.
When NG began what type of games were you looking into already? Specifically when did Rocket League spark an interest and why? I wanted an OW team because that is when the game was coming out and I wanted to grow alongside it (that didn't work out too well .. hehe) but around August when I heard about RLCS S1 and WDG reached out, I pounced on the opportunity to grab the roster!
What's the players' training routine like? I'm not sure, they just played a lot and I let them do their thing. As long as they were having good results, I didn't feel it necessary to enforce anything strict.
What rank are you in RL? Do you play it atall? I tried. I'm awful. It's a lot of fun, but going from watching my players do the most insane Aerials/Double Taps/Feathering to barely being able to make a save --- <:FeelsCringeMan:303254400015663114> --- but I will keep playing and getting better 😛
Do you think that any of the players that were in the team when NG won S3 lan will be back for S5 lan? I doubt it, EnVY will treat them so well they won't ever want to leave.
How long do rl players' play daily to maintain skill level? I couldn't tell ya, sorry!
From personal experience, what was your favourite or best moment with the previous roster? It has to be watching them win the RLCS S3 Finals. That was just surreal.
Is what we perceive reality or just a construct of our minds? Can our minds correctly interpret reality or is reality subjective? If I saw this like 40 questions ago I'd give you the most philosophically complex answer I could feasibly construct -- but I'm not going to lie that's a lot of effort. In theory though, does it matter? 🤔
What do you think the future of NG will look like, do you thonk you will expand into more gamess or focus on your current ones? I plan on getting into some new titles, and returning back to Rocket League. I am going to use this as an opportunity to regroup and refocus and tackle things from a new approach. We have a long, bright future ahead of us, so properly planning that out now is our best bet while we still are in the position to do so comfortably.
Why do you like coaching Northern Gaming? I own it, not coach it. 😉 But because it's honestly one of the greatest things on earth. The only job I'd ever want to leave this for is working high up at an NHL Franchise 😍
On a scale of 1-10, how cute do you think Remkoe is? Putting numbers on any of their appearances would be unfair to the numbered scale. IT is not ready to compensate for their QT-ness
How much was the buyout? It was $ x $ / $ + $ - $ ^ $ squared dollars.
What is the best thing about Rocket Leagie in your opinion? Pacing and overall simplciity of the game while maintaining complex mechanics that are exciting to watch.
How many other orgs were interested in the team? Every organization on the planet would be interested in that team, they are the best team in the World 😃
How does the transfer benefit NG and the players? It was more focused on the players than us, because to be honest I'd rather keep them in the first place. I think that they're going to get unparalleled opportunities with EnVy and especially with someone like Deevo who is SO young with SO much room to grow, I think EnVy and their incredible support staff are going to help him grow into the best version possible. I didn't want them to miss out on that opportunity
What do you think of higher tier players that use kbm and do you see them do anything better consistently than controller players? I use Controller and I'm awful, but if there's anyone who is a pro player with KBM they're gods and that needs to be appreciated.
Were you at the RLCS S3 LAN and if so what was your favorite thing you did while you were there? I could not make it unfortunately 😦 S4 hopefully 😍
If you had to choose to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Buffalo Chicken. Every day. All day.
what do you think of the rocket league esport scene? It's growing rapidly, and has a bright future ahead of it. I hope that organizations are included in more conversations going forward, and the Psyonix/Twitch can help smallemedium sized teams stay afloat as the price rises for salary with sponsorships.
Would you consider a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? I know it IS a fruit, but I'll never accept it's not a vegetable.
What business ventures did you have before NG, if any? This is my first venture into business! It's been very enjoyable though
Are you still with us? I am, not sure I can speak on behalf of my hands/wrists though
What would be your dream car (both in rl and irl)? I'm a huge fan of Audi R8s (Matte Black/Black Rims), Honda Civics (2017/Matte Black) and the new Tesla's (Chrome Black 😍 ) irl and I am not really particular in RL 😛
Who do you think is the best Rocket League player right now cause like, what's a Kronovi? Best player at LAN is Maestro. Best player in the world is probably Deevo.
What is the best way to explore human nature: psychology, philosophy, or biology? All three, equally, are important.
to be or not to be? Well, that is the question.
Tickling or no tickling? I hate being tickled. :[
If Northern Gaming didn't exist, what ambitions would you have otherwise? My two other passions are the hip-hop industry & the NHL. I one day want to work in either the NHL as a General Manager, or own a record label -- maybe both! 😃
Pancakes or Waffles? There's no real answer to that. Blueberry Pancakes own, but Belgian Waffles are.. w0wzers.
Dominus or batmobile? NANANANANANANANANANNANAANANA BATMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN
Which other games do you play besides Rocket League? Regularly I play WoW, NHL, LoL, HoTS, PUBG, CS:GO and Overwatch. SUPER Excited for Diablo S11 though, I love me some Diablo.
Do you play rocket league? I don't think you can call what I do "playing" --- heh.
What did you think of rocket league before you played it? I actually tried it before NG and thought it was cool, but that I was terribad and I don't like being bad at things so I gave up pretty fast haha
What do you think was Northern Gaming's secret to win Season 3 of RLCS? What made them perform better than all other teams? They worked harder than any other team at that event, and wanted it more than anyone I think. It didn't hurt that all three players came ready to play on Day 3 and played OUT OF THEIR MINDS
What's your highest rank in RL? Don't be ashamed. if cardboard was a rank, I'd be chilling there. 😃
If you play RL, do you prefer to play it with Keyboard and Mouse, or with a Controller? If controller, which one? I've only ever tried controller, KBM seems clunky
Isn't it the team's decision who they go with next. How much 'control' do/did you have over the org they finally moved to? I had absolute control in where they ended up, but I know they are already happy with their new home.
Would you think about picking up a team like The Leftovers? Absolutely. But it's not in the cards yet.
Who was your favorite rocket league player to work with? Miztik or Maestro. Both class acts and would love to work with either of them again in some capacity.
Northern Gaming is a Canadian organization, what made you decide to acquire a European team? We care more about the players, as people and as raw talent, than we care about their nationality. We want to help grow Canadian eSports, but that doesn't mean we're never going to take foreign talent. This was the best team available, and they felt like they matched with our ideologies very well.
What is your pet peeve (if any) in life? When people don't tip their servers in restaurants (I know in some places tipping is considered disrespectful in Europe, but in NA I think it's disgusting) They are paid under minimum wage, and the only excuse is "because I can't afford to tip" but in that case you probably shouldn't be eating at nice restaurants to begin with 😃
Is human nature constant or is it molded by culture? Can human nature be completely changed by culture or society? I like your philosophical questions. Human nature itself is constant, but the way we interact with the world is absolutely molded by culture. I think culture causes certain things to be brought out (capitalism breeds selfishness and greed as an example) more than others, but those are always underlying in human nature.
Why did you lose money with the team? Sponsors didn't care about our RL team until they won Season 3.
What do you think needs to happen for the rocket league pro season to be profitable and for players to be able to make a living off of it? We need help as organizations to bring in sponsors for our players. A proper league with Rev Share is super important as well, but that's a long ways away.
Are you good at air-dribbling? <:pc:272604533455060993> 😂 I can't even dribble on the ground. <:FeelsCringeMan:303254400015663114>
How often do players ask for more money ? It's common. They deserve it most of the time, but whether it makes sense for us as organizations is a different question entirely.
Just wanna say Mack thanks for taking the time to do this. Love that you're taking the time to talk with our community and hope to see you guys back soon. d'awh... ❤ you too sir! We will be, you guys are great and are doing great things, this is a community we want to be apart of for a long time.
Do you think Rocket League players will be able to do RL as a full time job anytime soon? many do, but there are a LOT of improvements left to be made to their quality of life. Unless you're making the RLCS Finals, I don't think it's easy to justify. It will just take time.
What is love? Baby don't hurt me.
In the one of the last questions you answered, you stated that "The team was always 'losing' us money". Why do you put losing in quotations? Because while we were losing money, and it was to their roster, it wasn't really their fault. We obviously got publicity, so it wasn't like we were just dumping money in a hole, but it definitely wasn't making us money.
What was your motive to make such a team, and how easy/hard is it to start and manage a Org? Sick picture btw. I just saw a good opportunity and wanted to see what i could do in eSports. It is ridiculously time consuming and stressful to start and manage an organization, but I love every minute of it.
How were you choosing the new org? Also, how do these transfers work? Do the players get the chance to say what they think or it was completely up to you? I picked an org I knew they would be taken care of with. They didn't get a say in the sense that I didn't really ask their opinions of it, but I knew they were okay with it and they were kept in the loop as the conversation went on with other teams. I finalized the decision and they woke up to the news of being EnVy players.
How good is Deevo on a scale 1-1000? We're sorry, the Scale you are requesting is currently insufficient. Please, try again later.
favorite rocket league player? I don't have just one. Anyone who played for NG in particular, but Maestro/Miztik have a special place in my heart
How long have you been following the RL scene? How long do you expect it to last? Basically the last full year. I expect it to be one of the elite eSports in the world.
Would you rather fight 3 remkoe sized horses, or one horse sized remkoe? Thank god you said Remkoe and not Deevo, he's a tall boy. Uhm, probably remkoe sized horses because a horse sized remkoe would beat my ass.
How did the squad and you react to gReazy leaving? Obviously it sucked, but we ended up getting an insane player in Miztik who I really really like, so I am happy it happened.
is Maestro really that good looking? Yes. Yes he is.
Do you think NBC's 2v2 thing will hurt or help the RL pro scene? Help. IT'S NBC! I want in, where do I sign up?
Could rocket League as an export ever be on a scale like CSGO or LoL and if so what needs to happen? Anything is possible, just takes time and good promotion by Psyonix/Twitch, which I think has been done -- maybe slap it on TV with ESPN or something similar?
Who do you personally liked the best in the roster? I liked all the players, so I am not going to say I personally liked anyone the "best"
What's the meaning of life, the universe, and everything? Doggos, Woofers, Yippers and Puppers.
What difference does your team winning tournaments make to your bottom line? Thinking mostly about non RLCS tournaments where currently the financial gain is small. Puts more money in their pockets. Does nothing directly for us
So if I understand correctly you helped the squad with picking a new org? Is it hard for you to see your boys leaving? I feel like I sent my kid off to College and I'll never see them again. It's bittersweet
Left twin or right twix? Both.
IF there is one thing you would change about the structure of RLCS (Bracket, team size, matches, rules) what would it be? Honestly? Nothing. It's a very well crafted League.
What was your reaction when NG won the world championships? I was... very very happy.
Was it Optic? We talked to them, but no.
What kind of music do you like? Almost exclusively Hip Hop (Rap & R&B)
What would be some tips and suggestions you can give people who would want to start their own eSports brand? Don't. Join one and learn the ropes, get the connections, then see if it's for you. It's a HUGE jump and it's a LOT of work
What did you think of the crowd's bias towards NA teams in the last LAN, and do you think that affected EU teams, yours specifically, in any way? I personally believe that when people cheer against you, you want to work harder to prove them wrong. I think the NA crowd is a partial reason why our team cleaned up NRG so well, and I think when the team had the crowd cheering for them when they got into the Grand Finals, they took all that energy and just grinded out the series. Flipping the Bracket was the beginning of the end though, the crowd blew up and I'm sure that was the moment when our guys realized "Wow, we can do this."
Which way up would a cat land if it fell with a buttered slice of toast strapped to its back? It would land on a 317 degree angle with it's left paw being obtuse to the Pythagorean's theory of it's nose.
I recall Chance streaming one day and thinking it would be nice to have an Esports team (something like that heh). How long was Northern in the works for before being announced? It seemed very quickly after that stream that Northern was announced. Also how did you guys end up meeting/coming to an agreement working together? The day he said that I happened to be watching him, and had spent the last few weeks building my businsess plan (not for him, just in general) and I donated to him on a stretch ($3) for the TTS to get his attention. We talked over the phone, and I talked with his Brother and we eventually worked something out. It took about a week from there to get everything sorted out. Funny enough, the original answer from Chance's camp was a No to working with me, but after one more talk I plead my case and they wanted to work with me 😃
If you could pick a starter team from all the RL players, who would it be? Maestro, Miztik, Deevo. Not that I dislike Remkoe (<3), I just really like Miztik. Maestro is the best LAN player in the world, and Deevo is in my opinion the best player in the world.
Favourite Meme? Turbo pics/Jersey probably -- gReazy train one is always great too
What is your favorite christmas movie, and why is it Die Hard? Harold & Kumar probably. Not a big Christmas Movie fan so that one has to be it.
What do you think Psyonix needs to do to attract bigger Orgs to the scene? Nothing. They've done it enough. They're coming. 😏
In your opinion, was NBC making its massive event 2v2 the right choice? Would you have preferred 3v3 instead? I really like the 2v2 decision. It's very different and unique, and should be very fun to watch
Who approached Deevo to join NG? Remkoe.
Should the upcoming cars be DLC in your opinion instead of crate drops? I like the idea of eSport Crate Drops where a %age of the money goes into the RLCS pot. Outside of THAT, I don't feel particularly any which way about drops vs DLC
Congrats on the pickup. How do you see the RL esports scene growing in the coming years and how has that influenced your decision to pick NG up? It is finally starting to grow in the direction I knew it always would. I just hope that it continues. I picked up WDG because I saw a lot of opportunity with their roster and with this community, and I've never looked back. It was a great decision.
Did you on purpose send me a medium jersey? Yes. Let me take credit for the magic jersey. If you ever ask me for another jersey, it's going to be a medium -- we can't break that bond we have now. It's too late.
What was your most dissapointing moment with NG last year? I think the departure of our Overwatch team, and the subsequent rumors that were started about us not paying our players. It caused me a lot of drama, and headache, and honestly more importantly it caused a lot of people who knew nothing about us to think we were scumbags. I know who started them, and obviously it left a really bad taste in my mouth, but I refuse to let a small minority of players ruin an otherwise great experience. We've worked with some amazing players, including those on this team. It sucked, and it was hard, but I think we've gotten past it enough now that I can look back at it and just shake my head in annoyance moreso than be actually upset.
If you were picking a RL fantasy team who would you pick? I just traded my RL Fantasy team. :]
So word of warning: I am drunk and very tired. This guy recently showed up at my new place so I figure I could relate the beginning of the mess I'm now in. Let's start with names first: Nate: Super into uncharted, if Nathan Drake was a real person, he would be Nate. Dude is the luckiest person I have ever met. We've been best friends for years. Lara: My other bestie. We've known each other for our entire lives. We've been inseparable for that whole time. She's ridiculously athletic(like Lara croft) and I'm super jealous over how attractive she manages to look, like all the time. U/Chronic_insomnia: Your highly biased, most of the time inebriated narrator. I'm super into video games, but also into personal hygiene and sports. Crazy right? Apparently that makes me beard bait. Keith: honestly I decided to call him Keith instead of his real name because that joke on family guy about Keith being the most unattractive name in the English language.(very sorry if your name actually is Keith, I'm sure you're a lovely person.) Anyway, Keith wasn't a fat neckbeard, he was actually insanely skinny. Other notable things include: disturbing willingness to share his porn preferences in public, wearing a tweed jacket with elbow patches, and being convinced he was going to go pro in CSGO. Finally, there's Foehammer: We met a really long time ago through a mutual love of Halo. We were really close almost instantly.She died about a year ago. She comes up a few times in this whole issue with Keith. I'm calling her Foehammer because that was her absolute favorite character. Let's get into it alright? Alright. It started this year, my friends and I had all decided to take a weight training class at the community college we attend. It was an easy credit and we could socialize. That being said we also take working out super seriously. So we were all listening very intently to the teacher giving us the parameters of the class and whatnot. As soon as the teacher dismissed us to go lift, I see the scrawniest guy I have ever seen, saunter towards us with the confidence of a dozen Tom Brady's. I should mention that despite it being a workout class, Keith was wearing a newsboy cap, cargo shorts, and a faze gaming t-shirt. The tweed jacket I mentioned earlier was crumpled up near the door. I remember that pretty clearly. "I'm just here to keep my body as sharp as my mind. May I ask what a fine lady like yourself is doing here?" This isn't exact but this is the same realm of creepy. "Lifting?" Was my witty response. I started doing Lat pull downs but I stopped after I realized he was trying to sneak a peek at my chest. "Oh that's cool. So what does an angel like you do for fun?" He was like trying to do an impression of what he thought a smooth guy sounded like. At least that's what it seemed like to me. "I like to workout, I play halo sometimes.." "Pshh Halo? I mean I guess that's a good entry game for a girl. I play competitive counter strike." "So like you get paid?" "Where would the honor be in that?" It was about time to kill this conversation. I decided my safest bet would be to go spot Nate on the bench press. Keith tried to follow me but the teacher told him he actually needed to lift to get a credit for the class. We forgot about Keith for a while, and we actually started chatting about Halo. I had started to get really into Fives multiplayer. I got a tattoo of the phrase Echo-419 a few weeks before we started that class. It was for foehammers birthday that year.(even if she's gone we still celebrate it.) For those of you that don't know, Echo-419(Foehammer) is this really badass female pilot in the first halo game. my Foehammer was obsessed with her. She has like four lines but she though she was the coolest character ever. Anyway the tattoo is pretty emotionally significant to me. It's on my left wrist and eventually I guess Keith spotted it, in between gawking at me and Lara. "I think you have a fan." Nate joked as he came over. I shot him a glare and turned to speak to Keith. "That is a sweet tat." He said. I smiled and thanked him, trying to explain about it a little bit. "I'm sorry to hear about your friend! I bet she wasn't half as cute as you though." I remember this because of how much I wanted to hit him. I'm way too nice though so the conversation/train wreck continued. "I'd really rather not talk about it. This is kind of a rough time of year for everyone who knew her." At this point Lara began to drift over from the pull up station because she was getting worried about me. "How did she die?" I don't normally get mad at this question but he asked it really weirdly. And I was a little angry about what he said earlier. "I really don't want to talk about that either." I was trying to find an escape route at this point. "It was embarrassing wasn't it? Was it drugs? It's okay. I'm here if you need to talk. I won't push you any further." He stroked my cheek and left before I could react. I was in tears and left the class for a bit to calm down. The class ended basically right as I got back. I went in to get my stuff but Nate stopped me at the door, pressing my bag into my hands. "He spent the rest of class pacing around, waiting for you to come back. I figured you didn't need to deal with that." He said. Followed immediately by "Oh sweet! Twenty dollars." He had just dug a random twenty out a pocket. I'm telling you, his luck was ridiculous. "Hey! Chronic_Insomnia! You're back! Want to grab some food?" Keith saw me and shouted from inside the weight room. Nate rescued me again. "Actually we're meeting some high school buddies at a bar.(we're all 19) it'd be kinda rude for her to bail on them you know?" We rushed off after that. I thanked him profusely and we ended up getting food at this tiny pizza place we found while looking for a fast food joint. Anyway, sorry if this was like hard to read at all. there are a few more parts to this if people are interested. Thank you for reading!
csgolounge can do whatever they want and will not get punished for that.
Well, to begin with I would like to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. My name is Denis, I'm studying Law\Criminal Law and 11 days ago I was offended by csgolounge's stuff admin and csgolounge rules. First of all I would like to say that I was banned at csgolounge for insulting csgl which I'm not proud and created an offensive post at theit steam page which I deleted almost immediately because I realized that what I did was totally wrong. According to csgl's rules I was banned for insulting csgl stuff member(s). Lets take a look at rule - No flaming is allowed. Slanderous, defamatory, obscene, abusive, insulting, threatening or harassing comments will not be tolerated. Any abuse directed at other members may lead to a ban.sourcehow the ban at csgl looks like (I don't want to share what I wrote there because it is a shame that I behaved like that) I'm totally agree with what they did and I have no complaints about that. BUT! What has happened after I wrote an appeal went out off control. Yeah, I wrote an appeal because I had some skins worth ~80-120 in returns. Last screenshot of my betting story I've checked rules and there was nothing said about ban duration in my case and about what will happen with skins which I had in returns. So I wrote an appeal and I've been waiting for more than 3 days (csgl admin BlackBurn was playing dota2 that 3 days or atleast was at dota2 afking (can't operate with evidence what he was doing at dota 2 during that 3 days or what we specifically was doing BUT! everything I was at his steam page is that he was playing dota 2. Anyways, let's continue. He replied to me at 29th of January after my numerous posts and his wall and sent trade offers. screenshot So, I was banned 26th of January for my post at 23rd of January and admin replied to me at 29th of January. *MAGIKAL NUMBER 3 * JK, Let's continue, I understand that "the judge" can't be biased or rather interested in verdict which defendent wants. Totally understand that and agree that if you make a law you should not be interested in someone's desires and laws unto. Okay. Nonetheless, admin replied to me and said that everyting is over and I'll not get unbanned, I suggested to unban me for 24 hours and let me get my stuff back and the reply was negative :"This is not a game, I won't do that". After that he deleted my appeal thats why I can't send you my appeal and proove what admin said, but now I don't really care much about prooves beacuse I've lost money and got banned on my main and alt (there is nothing said about alt accounts it the rules check if you want) account and moreover banned me at csgl and dotolounge's steam forums and appeal forums. more screenshots I just want to tell my story to csgo bettors and warn them to not get scammed like me. Well. and this is where fun begins. Since csgl is a 3rd party website which can rulled only by their creators there read this . Csgl in only a service provider and thats it. When we enter their website we DO NOT sign and agreements\terms of service which is sad because we - customers can't be protected by law or clear rules. It is said that These are the *basic** rules to which we operate, however, we reserve the right to change these rules at anytime without warning.* Basic rules are not enough to keep their(csgl admins) decision making process clear, it seems that admins are guided by an invisible hand of laziness which saves them time and our stuff in their pockets. customers are not fully covered by csgl rules *rules are to weak *admins...............everyone knows that admins at csgl not that great, but csgl admins > csgl twitter *we (customers) are not protected by anything , I would even say that csgl protected themselves more than their customers. Don't know what to say more about what happened. Oh, forgot to mention that I bet from my alt account at 30th of Jan. and at the same day I was banned my bet and how the ban at csgl looks like ban + they had no right according to rules for ban my alt account. *AND!** This is more hilarious, they banned my friend screenshot . And thanks to them his betting addiction will disappear soon :D Let's answer for some questions : Did ban for insult was fair? - Yes, it was. * Was it fair that csgl left my stuff ,which is worth real money, in their pockets? - No, it wasn't. *Did they had right to not giving me a chance to get my stuff back? - No idea, no rule for that no rights for me to do something and that is *wrong** by them. Was is it according to their rules to ban my alt and my friend? - No, at first case there is no rule about that so that did what they wanted to do and this is *wrong** because when in case present money or stuff which is worth money, "judge's - admin's" decision making process should be clear and be supported by law or like in my case - by rules. *Will csgl stuff will get punished if we - costomers will be scammed or will be offended by csgl? - No, they won't................they are responsible not to anyone and not tied to any legal or official structure. Just imagine if that would really happened GL guys! Keep your skins in save place.
P.S I think that I won't visit my post here, so feel free to tell me whatever you want. TL.DR scamlounge scammed me. Q_Q I see that people don't understand my point. I agree with ban but I don't agree with how they banned my alt, my friend and with their decision to leave all my stuff in their pockets and moreover I emphasised on their missing rules which would patch their "hole" in rules.
[Store] Cashing out inventory for keys. Have CSGOLounge betting items, mainly.
Hi there. I've been betting for a month on CSGOLounge and went from $300 to $1200, now looking to cash out everything (apart from the 0.04 skins I guess) for keys. My inventory: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198250614330/inventory/ Trade link: https://steamcommunity.com/tradeoffenew/?partner=290348602&token=EYW4oA3i This is my first time selling/trading, and I'm not sure how to set a buyout for alllll these items. Basically looking to trade any and every item for its value in keys as listed on steamanalyst.com. I hope this post has enough information, not sure what else to add. Thanks for your time. EDIT: Here's a chart type thing thanks to shimmy_1's suggestion. Not including any items under "Exotic" quality, there'd be way too many. If you want to check out those of lesser quality, check my inventory I guess.
Greetings traders! We'll be starting a monthly discussion thread on this subreddit, similar to the ongoing one in /steamgameswap. These threads will be a platform for you to ask questions, give feedback, and offer suggestions. Please do not confuse this thread for a replacement of [Q] though. Anyway, let's start with some news! Trading related news
Phishing links look like links to familiar websites, but are actually imitation websites that try to trick you into giving them your account details (Steam and/or email username and password) or download malware that will take your details/control of your computer. With these details the phisher can gain control of the account and lock you out of it by changing account details, then move your items and steam wallet funds to one of the phisher's accounts. Phishers can contact you through Steam, trade sites, and even email so always be careful to check before you click links. Even better is to not click links at all, and navigate to the real page yourself.
As some of you might not know, Steam allows users to have the same steam avatar and name. This allows for others to copy and duplicate and impersonate a reputable and trusted person, which could be an official middleman or your friend. Please be wary of who you are trading to at all times by adding a nickname and verify that you're trading your items to a right person. If someone adds you and asks you to pass it on to a friend to verify it's 'legit', it's a scam.
To conclude, there are some things to look out for when trading with someone, especially if cash is involved - Level of steam profile, amount of hours in games, private/ public profiles, amount of items and friends, and steam account age. Also, do check steamrep.com to check if they are marked as a scammer of have pending reports.
So the past few days, in almost every server I go to, a guy joins whatever server I'm on and targets me. And only me.

Ranked Overwatch is the most toxic competitive-scene in all of gaming history and here's why
Currently ranked Diamond at 3.1k in Overwatch. I mostly play Reaper, McCree, Zarya or Roadhog but when the situation demands it, I will play other heroes that can help my teammates. The reason I and literally all my friends that are playing Overwatch feel like OW is the most toxic competitive game to have ever existed is because at how entitled and judgmental people are ALL THE TIME. And this is coming from me who is ranked LEM (Legendary Eagle Master) on CSGO, a solo MMR of 3.2k on Dota 2 and ranked Diamond 2 (season high) on LoL. All of these games except for OW have around 2000 HOURS of playtime, so far I only have 150 hours on OW. In CSGO, in my experience people will mostly be judgmental when someone can't hold off an angle/site that they called out/wanted to play or constantly (like 70%) misses their AWP shots. In Dota 2, I'm only playing "Solo MMR" since none of my friends are interested in MOBAs and the worst kind of toxic judgment that I've seen is a person building his character without following the META (but most of the time eventually works out). Same goes to LoL. IN OVERWATCH ON THE OTHER HAND, game starts > picks a hero > the game hasn't even started yet (assembling team) and one guy already complains asking you to play "another hero, that hero is useless, GG, can I play the hero that you've picked FIRST or else I'm going to throw, Soldier 76 or McCree 10 SECONDS INTO THE FIRST ROUND and couldn't even kill the Pharah being pocketed by Mercy? GG you suck, and many more. What I'm trying to say is how FAST people can become entitled, judgmental, toxic and salty in Overwatch and I only have around 100 HOURS in Overwatch. Those other competitive games that I've stated have around 2000 HOURS played. I probably have not gotten to the tip of the iceberg for the toxicity of Overwatch YET. When I bought OW I was hoping that the game wont be as toxic or lower as the other games that I've stated. It's scary at how Overwatch has turned out in just a FEW WEEKS after Ranked was introduced to the public (Season 1), people were probably already toxic in Competitive during the beta testing I bet. What happened Jeff?
