And its by our favorite trash-heap writers trying to make something out of nothing, Cucktaco.
>For the most part, Saturday’s series between Wang “BaiZe” XinYu and Chang-Hyun “Cocosasa” Kim unfolded as you might expect, with some comedic moments from Cocosasa, who’s known to be an animated player. But toward the end of one Priest vs. Shaman matchup, something weird happened: after summoning a powerful Prophet Velen card, Cocosasa lifted up his hand and waved.
>“Did he just wave goodbye?” shoutcaster TJ Sanders asks, and in the moment, it looks like he might have. At that point, Cocosasa had taken a solid hold on the game, and for the entire match so far, he had reacted as if his opponent wasn’t even there, sitting right across from him.
>It might seem like an innocuous gesture, but in the immediate aftermath of the match, the Hearthstone community erupted in controversy about Cocosasa’s wave. Some players saw his irreverent behavior as unsportsmanlike conduct, while others thought it might discourage women like BaiZe from wanting to compete in future tournaments.
>In response to the immediate backlash, high-profile players like Brian Kibler, Sottle, and Lothar came out to defend Cocosasa, saying the move was all in good fun and that Hearthstone benefits from having players who are animated and even a bit over-the-top.
Daily reminder esports are cancer even for the most casualized garbage around, and these vultures will jump on it to create controversy.
