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 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.

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

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

Yesterday, Andrew Kim released an article about Geguri, the Korean female Overwatch player who was accused of cheating because she was “too good.” It was about her struggles during the hackusations and her clearing up the fact that the entire issue had nothing to do with her gender, but rather a bug in the game. As a player with a certain amount of fame, it will always be the case that a player will end up being put on some kind of pedestal by the public. In that sense, it is impossible to stop people from doing it. But that doesn’t mean that the players themselves have to accept the responsibility. While I think it’s ridiculous to try to politicize her situation, that’s on other people and not Geguri. She wants to just be a player, so just let her be a player.
