"ur only in a team cos uve got tits" - nBNostromo



Being a girl playing StarCraft is amazing. You get so many opportunities and so much help from teams and players. And you get a lot of love from the community. I’m really happy and grateful for that.

As you get known, you get fans and haters. It’s the same for everyone. Usually I don’t care for the haters. Just think about it - what could possibly be the reasons for being a hater? Like I have said before, I can’t imagine a happy person being a hater and thus I sometimes even feel sorry for the haters. I don’t think female players get more haters than other gamers - the haters just word themselves in a different way towards girls. There will always be haters since the world is full of sad people, and I don’t put too much into it.

However, when you get flamed over and over again by a manager for an up and coming team, it is a bit different. Maybe I have too much faith in teams. I’d just like to believe that there are people out there that really fit for the job “manager”, and I know about some managers that are really good at what they do. But somehow there are still people with no respect for female gamers that get to work as managers for teams. 

nBNostromo is/was a manager for team nuBreed http://www.nb-gaming.de/), if I understood correctly he will switch to another team soon (and continue to work as a manager). My "relationship" with Nostromo started out friendly:

00:00:12 - ALMaddeLisk: glgl
00:00:18 - nBNostromo: same to you darling 

But as we played more and more on ladder it got worse.

00:09:49 - nBNostromo: srsly
00:09:53 - nBNostromo: ur only in a team
00:09:56 - nBNostromo: cos uve got tits
00:12:45 - nBNostromo: fuckin bitch
00:12:47 - nBNostromo: learn some manners
00:12:49 - nBNostromo: u useless shit

Well, what can you expect from ladder anyway? But after our last game I got fed up.

00:00:35 - nBNostromo: still in quantic?
00:00:45 - ALMaddeLisk: ofc
00:00:47 - ALMaddeLisk: glhf
00:00:53 - nBNostromo: do you tit flash them
00:00:56 - nBNostromo: for them to pay u?


I don’t like to be whiny, but come on. Is this the right direction for esports? Putting guys like him as managers? 

How do you like this cheese? 20 drones and 1 queen is pretty all in :D

Note that these are just parts from our conversations.
