One thing I didn't see you guys mention was that Fuey has a stream and people in the comments section said there was nothing offensive about Fuey in his stream or gameplay.


Doesn't seem very necessary to mention. Just because someone doesn't act like a piece of s*** while they are streaming doesn't mean they never act like a piece of s***. I mean, you have to be incredibly stupid to go out of your way to stream stuff you know will get you banned.

Meanwhile superior Japanese game devs would never ban someone for playing as their one main in a fighting game tourney.

Except this isn't a fighting game. Dunno why that needs pointing out.

It's a multiplayer character based shooter where having a "main" is okay but you also need a bunch of other mains to switch to on the fly.

If you're in competitive and the enemy team switches up to counter your main and you refuse to switch yourself, you are actively ham stringing your team as they stomp on you because of your refusal to adapt to what they're doing.

Just adding to the "good, he should've been banned" pile of comments.

When people post sob-stories about being "unfairly" banned from whatever game, most of the time they are full of s***. Also, that site is cancer. Please don't link to it ever again.

It doesn't matter. The game allows you to pick whatever character you want. That is your free will choice. If the game required role picks then why not restrict the player? This is sending the message that if you do not play the game a certain way, and if a ton of people report you then you will be banned. The report tool can now be used to ban anybody for any reason. If you can manage to get a ton of people to report one person, the auto-ban system will ban them. Blizzard will uphold that ban if you make a good enough reason.

People can make all sorts of choices to play the game wrong. That doesn't justify anything.

If this person chose to play QM instead of choosing to play ranked this wouldn't even be an issue. It's completely understandable that in ranked people will expect you to play a certain way.

I love how your entire rebuttal is based solely on ignoring the actual reason he was banned. Do you often resort to sticking your fingers in your ears while shouting "NANANANANANA" in your real world conversations with people as well?
