As you may see above: I just want this to be resolved and the nonsense to stop as it damages this tournament in a major way - or so I thought. You won't find a cry for ban from me as I call it down right in the middle although he is my opponent. I also spoke out on behalf of alexrus to get a broader time window. I don't want to win because anybody gets removed, but beat the best competition on a level playing field since (to my own surprise) I seem to be fit to do. The core of that nonsense has a root though and that root should have been plugged a long time ago as there will always be trouble from it.. Anybody with a little life experience knows that, but this is just personal opinion. People solemnly change if they go unpunished or get second chances for free. It sends the wrong signal and encourages to repeat.
Now about you obscuring things - Take a look from my side of the table: Suddenly you call Redfield "Russian" in quotation marks? He is "Billy" to you now. Is he actually called Billy? No, you just tore him down as in smart***. Now you say you knew about his Russian forum ban and grudge against fellow players, but asked to help him with "proof" you wanted to translate nonetheless? That appears biased and doesn't add up. The guy defended Rishat and was probably one of the reasons the decision of ban was reversed. He was very vocal before, speaking for Russians as a group with only Alexrus talking against it... causing the incident to blow up. He quit this tournament with just one loss after a win in Greece on his own accord. He confessed and bit the bullet. Now he is a "traitor" and wishes you all bad? That stinks... switching from "this is my loyal journeyman who helps my agenda" to "this is a traitor now, don't believe a word he says" damages your own credibility and makes you look weak (not like you personally, in general!). A major downside of mob mentality vs individuality.
The only thing questionable is that all Russian players cheat, but it's common to say "all" and mean "a lot". It's just a figure of speech, google or no google translator. And that's a statement that holds true for any kind of multiplayer game unfortunately (for all Russian who don't cheat and get therefore cheated by their own countrymen).
I get your perspective and I'm not saying you did anything with bad intentions. Most advocates don't do... which is also sort of a compliment as you talk some sense - no question about that! But then again: You are not even in the tournament... so what's your story?
Now let's just stay cool and see what happens next. No hard feelings (towards Parallax), all good.
I will keep my mouth shut from now on so this ebbs down here in the forum.
