Pinoy DotA Community: Some Pet Peeves
Posted 09 December 2010 - 03:41 PM
Having said that, what's disturbing me isn't the quality and strength of Philippine DotA, but the general attitude of Filipinos (at least on GG.net). It's infested with bugbears such as insecurity, oversensitiveness, the balimbing mindset (inconstant loyalty), and "crab mentality".
Allow me to illustrate my point. Let's say I've posted a comment saying that Pinoy picks are useless, let alone their bottle-crow gimmick. What do you think would happen next? Well, an entire legion of Filipinos would probably ask me, "And who are you? You think you're pro? You wouldn't stand a chance against any RP team. Oh, wait. Your country doesn't have a DotA team! LOL!"
*Heh*. That's insecurity and oversensitiveness for you.
Now, let me use MG.AirAsia's recent loss (in SMM '10) as another example. During the first day of the tournament, when MG dominated in their group stage matches, the same legion of Filipinos was zealously cheering for them. After they lost to Deity and LGD.sGty, Mineski's Facebook pages were left with some consolatory remarks, but not without a horrendously large amount of insults, again from the same legion of fans.
"Amp. Kita niyo kung gaano katanga 'yang mga MG na 'yan?! Pinahiya ang Pinas! Kung Happyfeet na lang sana ang representative natin (Damn. You see how dimwitted these MG guys are?! They've humiliated the Philippines! If only Happyfeet were our representative)..."
Perhaps you now have a picture of what I mean by "inconstant loyalty" and "crab mentality".
As you may have surmised, I have a few teaspoons of Filipino blood in my body, and I'm certainly not one to turn a blind eye to all this filth tainting the Filipino image. I'm sure I'm not the only one who sees how structural evil in the Philippines reaches even a relatively small world like the Pinoy DotA community.
So, mga Pinoy, don't you think it's about time you outgrew yourselves?

In my opinion, you can't do anytthing especially when the community is mostly filled by immature kids.

DotA is such a big game in the Philippines but the ordinary Pinoy DotA players and fans don't exhibit a proportionate amount of mental and emotional growth. It's quite ironic. Such a situation may actually have some bearing on the current performance of Philippine DotA. Simply put, Philippine DotA seems to be lacking support not only from the public sector but also from the "fans".
@8: Of course, some people wouldn't care. But let's just say I have an insatiable urge to purge indifference as much as I can.
