"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.

  1. Random flamers - that's one thing.. Not pleasant, but what can you do, as you say there's a lot of sad people around.. But this guy should not be a manager. This is - excuse the language - fuckin terrible.. He should be kicked from his position immediately.

  2. Someone get that guy out of the e-sport community already!

    Geez, I get both mad and angry to read this, I myself would not find it appealing at all to hear, "just because I have a dick... bla bla bla"...

    Fucking hell get him out of here! Nostromo you are going down!

  3. Okej, jag klarar inte ens av att skriva den här kommentaren på engelska. Knappt att det går på svenska. För vad den där göken skriver är ju så absurt, löjligt och stötande att jag inte finner några ord för det.. Jag brukar inte tycka om att kalla folk för "broken goods" eller liknande, men Nostromo verkar verkligen falla i den kategorin. En fungerande människa skulle väl tamejfan aldrig skriva sådär?

    Anyways. Keep up the good work. Love your play, and your castings.

  4. I sent a message via Twitter but just wanted to post on here too.

    This is just unacceptable. The flamers and the trolls are holding back a community that they pretend to support.

    Juvenile bullshit, especially from someone involved in the eSports scene.

  5. Its not like your the most manner person yourself, doing an all in against me and after getting outplayed not even a gg. But this guy srsly needs to get banned from esports though, this is unacceptable in so many different ways.

  6. Helt oacceptabelt beteende.

  7. Before this turns into an even greater shitstorm... Has he said anything about this? Although unlikely it's still possible that someone else was using his account during this or maybe he even got hacked etc. Have you been in contact with him outside of the game?

    Seeing as this is from multiple games i kinda doubt it myself. But with everything going on in sc2 (drama shitstorm wise) i wanna get both sides of the story.

  8. Har vært borti dette laget selv i en liga, og da var det helt ok mellom spillerne, men på observer-chatten var det ekstremt med BMing, nesten til det punktet hvor vi vurderte å melde det til arrangøren av ligaen for å få trekt poeng fra dem. Så du er ikke alene om å synes at dette er helt på trynet forjævelig å ha i esport :(

  9. Expected from anonymous haters on the ladder. Unacceptable from a team manager.

    SvaraRadera
  10. Unacceptable. I hope you continue to call out people like this, the community doesn't want to be associated with people like him

  11. Is it confirmed that this account belongs to the actual manager?

    Anyone can write anything in their nick and damage a brand/name - case and point - FnaticTricky - known maphacker, no affiliation with Fnatic.

    These remarks seem so absolutely stupid, that I doubt anyone able to play SC, let alone a team manager would utter them. Especially under own name.

    Then again - Orb. You never know.

    But again - I hope there's some kind of solid proof that this account belongs to this person - beyond the nick.

    1. Poster of the above comment.

      Holy, fucking shit. There's only one person with that nick, and other corraborate that he is, in fact that primitive.

      I'm not sure which part amazes me most - that he'd say such things, or that he'd be stupid enough to say them under own name.

  12. Yes, in one game I asked.

    00:00:28 - ALMaddeLisk: same team as bunny?
    00:00:33 - nBNostromo: im manager.

    I also confirmed this with a player.

  13. Thanks for the support everyone, I didn't intend for this to get this big tho^^ Love you all <3

    Also, no I don't always gg :P

  14. 1: Madde your commenting and especially asking the right questions after a game is the best in the country, regardless of gender.

    2. Your social skills as well as actually being a girl in a very guy-heavy environment gives us hope. After all we want e-sport to be something for everybody, not only for the nerd males out there.

    3. You are putting up an enormous amount of patience dealing with all haters and I admire that. Keep your current mindset, seem like a solid way to not letting the get to you.

    To sum it up: There are tons of people appreciating you as female gamer, including me, remember that when stuff like this happens :)

  15. So sad that there are people out there who cant accept that there is some really good female sc2 talent out there. I bet they are just jellous because Maddelisk isnt just a great player, but also really attractive :)

    Really liked the post, brings up an important subject and i hope that this gets featured on alot of sites. Also i hope that this jerk is removed from his position.

    Oh, and Madde, please visit us at our next barcraft at Nymble :) Last time i worked at one of our barcrafts you were there but i was to shy to talk to you :p

    SvaraRadera
