The strange joy of watching shit games

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

I fundamentally think that the best part of esports, any esport, is the exceptional games that can be played. This post isn’t about that; this post is about those shit games that are so bad in every possible way that once if you start watching, you can’t turn away. This happened today in EU LCS with ROC vs OG. It happened before in SC2 with Stephano vs Petreaus, dragon vs cytoplasm,  MaNa vs Firecake.

These games are so horrific that they become a joke, a point of pride unto themselves. They are sometimes only bearable through the use of ridiculous commentating as seen in todays games or iG vs DK g2 when the Koreans casted.
