Slingshot Readers,

If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more


Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

This is the first of many blog posts I’ll be writing for Slingshot. As this was the first, I decided to lay out the premise for what this was all about. One of the things they specifically asked for was a Twitter on steroids. The parameters were whatever I wanted. The style anyway I felt. The game anything I felt like. So this will encompass esports as a whole and will be written from my perspective in whatever prism I feel like. As that’s the case I’ll make jokes, go on rants, write observations, discuss whatever I feel like, maybe go on completely deluded consciousness streams. For reference, I follow CS:GO, SC2, Dota2, FGC, Melee, LoL and bits and pieces of other things whenever they hit my fancy.

In a way, this blog will be like the old esports show Live on Three with DJWheat, SirScoots and Slasher as it isn’t particularly¬†specialized in any esport. I say that, but the main game I watch right now is CS:GO, so maybe it’ll tilt that way when I write.

By the time I’m done, you’ll at times think I’m insane, funny, boring, stupid, evil, good, sardonic, an asshole, smart or ignorant. I’m a lot of different things to a lot of different people and the¬†morals by which I run my life are different from other people. The only constant you can know about me is that I am what I am. I will never pretend to be otherwise. And along the way, you’ll learn a thing or two about esports.

Chiu on That.
