On the second day of the Shanghai Major, James 2GD Harding was released for violating his contract with Valve. He will never work with Valve again, and this is why.

Ever since they fired him I never watch pre or post game analysis/comments. It's so fucking boring. Literally paraphrasing what we already saw in the game instead of grabbing a snack to relax and laugh.

Can't say I'm a DOTA fan but I do watch my share of Esports. James seems like the definition of an asshole. Yet, he is very entertaining and has interesting things to start an interesting dialogue around a tournament, players, teams and so on. The double edged sword is that he is controversial and says some 'offensive stuff', but he is extremely entertaining and people would stay tuned solely to hear his commentary.

@Lion Tyler I can see your point and can't argue with that. At the same time, people are assholes in different aspects of life. So while yes, he's crude, rude and all the rest of it, He is still entertaining and seems to speak his mind (what a lot of others might feel but not necessarily say cause P.C Culture). I can see why people dislike him and respect it, I think people like him could be used for generating interesting panel discussions. Then again, the double edge being offensive shit and offending others unprovokedly is a breeding ground for toxicity.
Lion Tyler

Indeed. Problem is, while the world can make some use of good entertainers, it really doesn't need another asshole being rewarded for being an asshole. Provided he actually is one, which is very unclear to me due to contradictory statements, I'm glad he's gone.

At that time I hadn't watched much DotA and was just hyped for Dotes after watching the TI production for the first time. The Shanghai major happened and I was like "nice, another good DotA production". Turns out I witnessed the most iconic moment in DotA live and I didn't even know 2GD before. James was my introductor to professional DotA panels and He was talking about wanking and flaming people. Him getting fired was actually sad.

What was the definitive breach of contract, because they told him to get lost and could do so even without a reason. They're the ones who've slandered him considering he's already an online image, and has a direct face-value persona that individuals can come to their own conclusions on. In retrospect and from what I remember they should be charged if they truly went as overboard as I believe Gaben and his rotten sleugh of minions did!

I guess I'm the only one that still appreciates the other casters and analysts besides James. Yes, James is a great guy, one of the most important person in the Dota 2 community, but did everyone forgot about Cap, Synd, PFlax, Blitz, Charlie, Winter, GoDz, Merlini, and RedEye? The people here are so focused on James and forgot about the others for some reason, even saying they're 'boring' (Either they have a very low sense of humor or they went 'full yandere' for James). I do find some of James's humor a teeny tiny bit too far, though.
