Canadian CSGO caster Matthew ‘Sadokist’ Trivett took to twitter to vent his frustration on the recent CSGO drama. He took no names but made it clear how sick he was of people’s hypocrisy and gender bashing mentality and how they supposedly ‘play the victim’ behind the scenes.

Sadokist had been away from CSGO for most of 2020 but made a return to casting alongside Jason ‘moses’ O’Toole at the StarLadder CIS RMR 2021. He was also there at the PGL Stockholm Major and was welcomed with open arms by the community. Previously he had casted 2 Major Grand Finals and was a staple at the biggest CSGO events since 2014. 

Sadokist stressed on the point how esports as a whole was free from politics and propaganda as it was done solely ‘for the passion, the thrill, the competition, and for the love of gaming as a whole’.

This could very likely be a dig at Auguste ‘Semmler’ Massonat who shamed Ryan from Rush B Media for having pronouns in his bio. Until now esports had been free from politics and was focused on gaming alone, but the announcement of the ‘GGFORALL’ initiative has people resorting to using it as a way to further their political agendas and beliefs. 

He also said ‘You want to do good? Stop trying to lecture people on something you don’t actually understand or have the proper education on. Stop tearing down the walls for the sake of self worth. Use your brand to support charity/community, instead.’ pointing to the fact that people on twitter are quick to criticise instead of actually understanding the problem at hand, thus using their brand and influence for the wrong purposes. 

Sadokist also replied to a user saying he’s been part of the industry long enough to see the changes. He explained how politics was not as prevalent in the scene 5 years ago as it is today and he has called it out accordingly whenever need be.
