"In accordance with the International e-Sports Federation’s (IeSF) tournament regulations, since the main tournament event is open to male players only. This is to avoid possible conflicts (e.g. a female player eliminating a male player during RO8) among other things."

What the actual fuck?

Reason #239519 I need Feminism. I hope Blizzard does something about this

wtf

God fuckin dAMMIT

If blizzard knows about this and doesn’t do anything or worse supports it I /will/ quit wow no matter how much I like it

to avoid possible conflicts (e.g. a female player eliminating a male player during RO8) 

so you’re keeping women out of competitive gaming because…women might beat men at competitive gaming?????????????

in a competition???????????????

where the whole point is to beat your opponents?????????????

masculinity is apparently the most fragile force on earth to be shattered by the mere concept of a loss against a different gender

Better remove all female characters from all tournaments. Wouldn’t want to damage a dude’s ego because he lost to chun li.

fuck off with everything about this
