Only One LGBTQ Person Allowed Per Team In League Of Legends Tournament

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Garena, operator of League of Legends in places like Southeast Asia, Taiwan, and the Philippines, is hosting an all-women eSports competition.
Cool! There's just one problem: they've put a limit on the number of LGBTQ people allowed per team because they might offer an "unfair advantage."


Garena made the announcement in an update in their eSports site

 

1) Each team will be allowed to have a maximum of one (1) Gay/Transgendered woman for the entirety of the tournament day. Therefore, teams cannot do the following: Team_A's first game will be 4 female members and 1 gay, then on Team_A's second game, they will have 4 female members and replace with another gay or transgender member. 

2) Any team who has violated the above provision, regardless if intentional or otherwise, whether discovered during the day of the event or some time after, will have all their team members (the female members as well as the Lesbian, Gay, Transgendered women member) sanctioned with a 1-year ban on all Garena-organized events, including subsequent Iron Solari Tournament.

 

 

I guess my dream team of 5 scarletts in one team is now gone :'(

Thoughts?

But couldn't you just keep it to yourself and still have a team is all LGBTQ or more than one?

Gay and Transgender, IMO, shouldn't be reasons to block people from tournaments (unless the person is physically transgender, in which case it might make a difference but still a minimal one at that).

This is an all-female tournament so...I don't get it.

 

Oooh. Now I do.

 

They wanted to let trans-women ( who actually had surgery I guess) participate, but then they'd have an advantage because...why?Anyway, they'd have an hypothetical advantage and that would be unfair so...only 1 of them per team?

 

Nevermind, I still don't get it.

 

 

Anyway, it's just Garena and just all-women tournaments.

Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

This is a lot more than a little bit discriminatory against women, so just wait until the feminists get a hold of it.

For South Asia this is hugely progressive. While it's nice to say "well why don't they just allow whomever", they aren't all that progressive in general and have to start somewhere.

This is LoL, not wrestling. Does gender make enough of a difference to justify any sort of discrimination?

To some people on both sides of the gender divide, yes it does.

 

I personally don't care what anyone pokes or has poke them, I don't really want to know either.

Well lesbians can run at superhuman speeds, have astoundingly fast reflexes and fight injustice in the world

 

Edit: I've been informed that I was in fact thinking of The Flash, not Lesbians. This is terrible.

Apparently so. From what I can infer, gay and trans people are better strategists and have considerably superior reflexes than straight people.

Men are like a single core CPU with 10Ghz of processing power, Women are like an octa-core on 2.5Ghz. My point is that women and men's brains work differently, maybe that's why they thought it'd be unfair?

This is a lot more than a little bit discriminatory against women, so just wait until the feminists get a hold of it.

LGBTQ....? Why do people keep adding letters to LGBT...? Oh wait... Special Snowflakes...!

 

Also, having an all-female competition is stupid in general. If the women aren't good enough to compete with the men at the highest level then tough luck I'm affraid.

The Q stands for Questions/Questioning. Some spell is LGBTQA for to say that Q&A are OK.

Might as well add Other Kin and that other attention whoring shit to it while we are at it as well. Leaving it as LGBT is perfectly fine and it shouldn't be changed.

What I find funny is that there's all this noise over the 1 LGBT thing, but the entire tournament is restricted to half the population based on genitals already. I mean, what do you expect as long as things like that matter? It's not like this is a kind of sporting even where higher levels of testosterone give you a competitive edge with bigger muscles.
