eSport kan ofte fortælle nogle hjertevarmende historier, og nu har Counter-Strike: Global Offensive-industrien produceret endnu en, som kommer fra PCGamesN. Denne historie handler om en døvblind spiller ved navn Adam "Loop" Bahriz, som blev mobbet online når han spillede Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, og ifølge Reddit-brugeren PDeeee blev der både gjort grin med ham, og han blev sågar sparket ud fra servere.
Nogle af hans holdkammerater har dog undskyldt på ESEA-forummet efterfølgende:
"We thought he was a troll... what would you think if someone came in with a bind text like that, people troll like that all the time. Instead he should tell the people to check out his Twitch. after I checked his twitch I realised he was for real. I apologise but it was an honest misunderstanding. Lots of people troll in ESEA." fortæller de.
De gode nyheder for Loop er at eSportsorganisationen Team EnVyUs har afsløret via Twitter, at de er interesserede i at skrive kontrakt med ham som streamer:
"Hey @FDN_Loop, we want to offer you a contract to stream and represent our team. Let's do this."
Selvom nogle har beskyldt Team EnVyUs for at gøre dette for marketing, og ikke for Loops skyld, har Reddit-brugeren SpeedyBlueDude sagde:
"Yes, being bullied and getting caught on camera made this kid a success. Yes it's not fair that some Streamers who work hard for years will never reach the level of success Loop has. Yes it's really lucky that the community decided to be nice and donated $10,000+ [USD] in a day to Loop."
"Let him enjoy this s***. Loop is disabled and has a hard life. If we can make it so someone who probably gets looked at like he's weird by strangers in public, can have some enjoyment and success in doing what he loves, let's do it."
"Loop deserves to be happy. Being jealous of a man who's legally deaf, blind, has no nose, and "talks funny" because suddenly Life played him a good hand is petty and pathetic. The community banded together, and did something amazing for a kid who surely needed something like this after all the garbage the community has thrown at him."
Det lader altså til at folk har Loops ryg, og noget kunne tyde på at han nu kan få en karriere som spiller. Han har nu selv skrevet følgende via Twitter:
"I'm reading these articles and everytime I get chills and a tear in my eye I can say for the first time that I'm happy with my life."
