Brandon “Sixless” Patterson, a player of Cloud9’s PUBG Mobile squad has been removed from the team following his stint with the Indian community. Brandon insulted India’s top player, Mortal along with Team Soul in a series of controversial content posted by him on social media. He also lashed out at the Indian community itself calling Indian fans as fickle-minded and toxic.
Cloud 9 has released a statement making it clear that this sort of behavior is against their expectations of policies and in turn, they have decided to remove” Sixless” from their active roster.
Brandon’s trash talk and bad attitude handed him a one-way ticket out of North America’s best PUBG Mobile squad. Indians did not take this issue lightly as Brandon is being criticized all over social media for his brash behavior. His inbox and comments section is full of Indian fans defending the players who were being targeted by Brandon.
Nothing justifies his actions but we, as Indians can make efforts to not prove him right. Letting go of the matter and moving on to focus on the positive sides of the community is the best way. By trolling, hating and being toxic over the internet, we will just end up proving “Sixless” right.
This plague of toxicity has haunted the gaming community for countless years and no organization or game developer can find a solution for this as the responsibility lies on the people’s shoulders.
