There's a hilarious scandal unfolding in the SC:BW community right now involving Larva. Larva was invited to a exhibition tournament of sorts and all the other players were non-Korean players that didn't play competitively anymore. Needless to say Larva was leagues ahead of them skill-wise so he decided to make it interesting by employing some showboating antics, such as off-racing and nuking, playing with his hands crossed, killing off his own worker at the start of the game, and the most notable - playing with his feet.

His opponent, Legend, was a retired Chinese pro and was unaware of the antics during the match. After the match when he was told about it he was quite upset and felt disrespected and humiliated. His statement translated:

  How did I meet such a mentally ill person while going overseas to have a little fun (not sure if that’s what his metaphor means). What kind of enjoyment did you get from this, or did you do it for some mentally challenged fans. When I first knew you I thought you got your results through hard work, and I respected that. But now I see that I was completely wrong. Even if you were to nuke me in game I would just laugh it off. Outside the game you act like a clown, this is the difference between you and a 1st place professional player. Trash…

The event organizer, ZOTAC, also responded and ended up banning Larva from future events:

  1. Zotac apologize to Legend and all spectators for this incident. Larva's actions will not be tolerated.

2. Larva did not notify of the organizers of his actions, and his statement of "having the organizer's permission" is not true.

3. Larva will be banned from any Zotac Cups in the future, and all players with previous record of similar actions will not be invited.

4. Zotac expects Larva to apologize to Legend.

So now the SC community is embroiled in heated debate over the morality of playing against your opponent with your feet. Thoughts?

Think Legend needs to apologize for his statement more than Larva needs to apologize for his actions. Think Larva did nothing wrong, hatersgonnahate.gif

Meh. "Playing with feet" is just sticking one foot up on the keyboard after the zealot rush has mostly already failed. Pretending to sleep in a ZvP when the game is already over .

So just kind of unimpressive douchebaggery from Larva, nothing to get excited over in any way.

yeah doesnt seem like the hugest of deals - esp considered it was classified as a showmatch. also, i've heard that the chinese->english translation tone of legend makes it come off a little bit more harsh than its meant to be...tho i think its still pretty salty

i think its ridiculous people are surprised larva acted in this manner. of course he would act like this. how often is he basically guaranteed $10k w/ no pressure and a great opportunity to showcase his antics. have they rly never watched his stream? lol

chinese player should stfu and laugh it off and pocket the free $ and wish larva GL on his brand

can someone link larva smashing everything in his room for 10m then breaking down crying? lolol

bitch on a pension suck my dong

also as McNasty said, his antics were stupid AF. he did them at times that didn't matter and never stuck to them. i think he failed hardcore at being funny

if you got problems, don't lose to the clown playing with his feet

he should not be making fun of other people like that in public. and the other guy should have left it alone and let the larva dude keep doing what he was doing. hopefully also in other events.

in fact it should be encouraged.

When Flash is destroying Larva's bases Flash should be shown jerking off

God damn people get so upset over such dumb things. It's a fucking exhibition match against a top pro vs. ex retired foreigners. Everyone knew he was going to stomp them -- why can't he have a little fun?

thats hilarious wtf with the salty, this is good for esports. Besides, firebathero did worst things and it were on important events.

Lol, Larva is the best. Hope he doesn't get discouraged.

there is a light at the end of the tunnel... (but sometimes the tunnel is long and deep as hell)
