Huehuehue. Apparently LGBT players are so good they're capped at 1 per team in this League of Legends tournament xD

Says at the bottom they reversed their decision. What a shock. But it also says that anyone self-identifying as female can participate, so there's nothing barring a whole bunch of dudes signing up and saying that they "self-identify" as female.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Yup, it's just hilarious. It's like they were scared of white chicks style guys going to the tournament xD

So glad the community bitchslapped them so hard for these stupid tourney rules. For once the LoL community came through. And I'm fairly confident I'll never say that again.

Whilst I am someone who is not accustomed to quote tumblr, I think it is fair for once to say that I genuinely do not even.

Exactly. In other news: Bungie might be getting bought back by Microsoft.

Halo 1, 2 and 3 when they were with MS before ODST, Reach and Destiny after the split. The former are considered good games, the latter not so much.

ODST and Reach were pretty good, I've not played Destiny but apparently it's, um, not very good.

ODST was my favourite Halo game truth be told but the first three received much better popular and critical acclaim iirc.

The Federal Communications Commission in the United States has voted in favour of strong net neutrality rules - see this BBC News article. I think this is good news, especially given our own official stance on the subject.

But what happens when they decide what can and can't be on the internet? They already regulate the crap out of what can be shown on television.
