It's almost like men are better in competitive settings. Imagine my shock.
>>
>>403397053
Not really. I really like it when there's a character tha I can empathize with.

The really funny thing to me about the OWL "controversy" (implying it's not manufactured) is that the only people who are mad about it are people who know nothing about esports. This is the norm in pretty much all competitive video games, with some outliers. The fact that a girl can't even hack it in such a causal piece of babby garbage that's hardly competitive at all really says something.

I mean, it's cool to have reasons to root for people, and people you find it easier to empathize with are easier to root for.

The only real problem is when one acts like they're entitled to have people who are similar to them in competitive videogames :^)

Did someone stop women from joining a team or something, is there barrier to entry they aren't mentioning? Are they so entitled they feel people are obligated to put them on their team?

My favourite character in most games is the cool robot guy. Why do people need a character that is the same gender as them? I thought the whole point was to pick a favourite based on fighting style or how much you want to fuck it.

Video games, just like board games, are an even field by design. No amount of social stigma, organizational efforts or political conjuncture can overshadow skill and effort. There are objective ways to win and there are objective ways to lose, especially in 1v1 games.

Men have bigger hands. Therefore they can reach the buttons easier. So games are sexist.

Or maybe more women should try out for competitive gaming. If they're good then they're good, if they aren't then they're not. I could see some teams having a bias toward women but not all competitive teams. Plus an all girl team was... tested before and it didn't work out for compatibility issues.

Do I feel represented?

The answer is no. In all forms.

I am a man but my identity is not based on my masculinity. I play video games but my identity is not based on being a gamer. I am a free spirit. You cannot represent me because I am an untameable force of nature. I have no connection to you. You will never consolidate me into a marketable identity.

Very rarely. If all it takes for you to feel represented by a character is them being a person of your same gender and color, then you're a shallow person. I don't identify with or feel represented by all white males, since I share almost nothing with the vast majority of them beyond that.

Thats how it works in real sports, because absolutely no one, except for a few fringe nutcases, would argue against the fact that women have less physical ability and muscle mass then men.

Same thing diversity means.

It is different from tokenism, in that in tokenism, the majority is still represented as the majority.

In Representation/Diversity, the less of the majority, the better. Infact, once you have none of the majority, you have reached complete representation/diversity.

That's fair enough, but bear in mind that bringing a scientific element into the discussion (e.g. men have shorter RT than women) is pointless unless the person making that claim actually sources their evidence. This applies to all broad-sweeping claims (not just those on anonymous video game discussion websites).
>>
>>403407118
True enough.

But at some point all discussion in here would stop, because you cant clearly define which statements require scientific prove and which dont.
>>
>>403407824
Thanks man, I understand your point.

I think the best bet is that if a claim houses a broad generalisation, then it probably needs some direct proof to back it up - otherwise what's to stop you making stuff up and feeding a lot of other peoples' ill-informed biases?

I don't think your original point was completely invalid (though there are probably a lot of factors at play), I just want to see people source their information more.

>If all it takes for you to feel represented by a character is them being a person of your same gender and color, then you're a shallow person
sjws are excessively shallow people who use very shallow logic. you will never make them realize the irony or hypocrisy of their actions or beliefs.

putting people on a pedestal strictly for physical surface traits (skin color, gender, sexuality) is just as bad as segregating people negatively for the same things.

they don't really care though because their goal is conformity to their beliefs, not making the world a better place for others

you know what's funny, out of all the first world sub-groups of oppressed people, in all these endless waves of sjw bullshit, i still have yet to see a single person trying to advocate for gingers. yet i hear the "gingers have no soul" meme way more often than i hear anyone actually saying racial slurs or anything

Why doesn't she join the e-sport tournaments then? Oh yeah because she doesn't actually play video games and is only praising tumblrwatch because she read it has gay, autistic and Muslim characters.

There's really not enough Finnish characters in vidya. Pic related (Olli from Silent Storm) is the only one I can think of

It's okay to be racist against whites. It's also okay to be sexist against males. SJWs just don't know what racism and sexism means, they use it as it means "bullying non whites" or "bullying women" and therefore shit on white males, which is sexist and racist by default.

anon you don't understand how stressful it is to pick mercy and hold down the heal button. constantly being oppressed by the expectations of her teammates to hold down a button. having to deal with the sharp and piercing cruelty of being called "healslut". the HUMANITY.

That's because the overwhelming majority of people with red hair are white, and being racist against white people is fine for some reason.

They want conformity. Even if they engage with something at the absolute shallowest level possible (the norm for these types, honestly), they will count themselves among the diehards and demand conformity to their worldview.

When companies/celebs/whatever bend the knee, they claim a 'big victory' for [x activist cause of the week], and move on, completely abandoning whatever they just forced to conform to their Feels, not buying in.

much like marvel had to sweep their entire comics staff for being unqualified retard activists with no talent, driving their sales into the dirt, you simply have to wait for these various establishments to hit their points of total non-feasibility

The non-meme answer is because in Korea, fashion/beauty trend is literally only one profile so everyone appeals to the same beauty trend, hence why all men have the same haircuts

Fuck off, The only people being represented are South Korea.

Also the very idea that you should be hired based on your gender or skin colour is really shocking and pretty concerning that these people may come to be in positions of power.

Honestly no. Plenty of white guy protagonists in video games nowadays but how many of them are borderline alcoholic trap-fapping neckbeard weirdos? How many eccentric, mentally ill social outcasts do you ever get to play as? Trevor from GTA V is really the only one who comes to mind who's somewhat close to that description.

I don't even get why these people have the bizarre need to feel 'represented' in games. And are they really being represented at all when the character is like Aloy from HZD; a slightly above average looking woman who kills robots and is generall dull as fuck as a person? Surely they should want more female protagonists to be whingy, perpetually triggered uggos like them. Of course, these people are shallow as fuck, so they're happy enough to replace your bland white male protagonists with women and racial minorities who are equally as bland and call it progression.

We've been literally giving them jobs just for having vaginas for years now. You don't think this would have conditioned them to be let into everything for free? They don't fucking know how tryouts work, they just think you hand it a resume. The only women that ever had to go to tryouts played sports in high school.
That or they actually think Pro teams have talent scouts that just recruit people off Twitch or some shit.

when did people unironically started wanting to see themselves "represented" in games? Yeah, literature and other kind of media always had their self inserts, but videogames are a pretty recent media, 20 years ago we were killing zombies and shooting aliens in spaceships for hiscores a few years before that, now everyone wants a 1:1 copy of LGBTself as a main character who never do any wrong and fuck if the gameplay is shit

>>403397445
It's a proxy, someone else is fighting for you as an avatar. Same way that modern warfare are done through proxies. Instead of representing yourself as your skills, they want a visual.

the thread is not complaining about women but rather about the people (men and women) who complain there are no women in overwatch league without stopping and asking why that's the case.

You should read Väniö Linna.
Or perhaps watch some movie-adaptations.

Those "women" that performed surgery on themselves to deny a truth, fucked themselves and their physical health hard by that same surgery and forced chemical changes in the body, they might be in good shape for every day situations, but not in shape to compete in high level physical efforts.
Do you really think that age will treat them well?
Do you really think that, even if forcing through surgery the removal of a symptom magically removed the cause as well, they survived 20 years, they'd be as healthy as their identical twin that did not go through the same abuse to his body?

Yes. He spent years lobbying the Finnish government to let him use their supercomputers to create a vidya adaptation of Tuntematon Sotilas

I don't care about representations. If you're going to put someone like me in the game, just fucking put me in the game instead.
Games need cool characters, not representations unless it's a World Tournament of some kind.

only when it's done against women.
Imagine, your mother did a woman only reading club. Doesnt sound strange, does it?
Now, imagine you made a men only vidya club, you'll be crucified and dilapidated
Let's put another example
A woman suddenly ran across the road and sucker punched a man she didnt even know, what would an unrelated onlooker think? probably "these two have some history and he did something to her"
But now let's say it was a man who darted through the road and sucker punched a random woman, what would the unrelated onlooker think?
