True, it is a “Sad day and a WAKE UP CALL” for gamers to repent of the wickedness they are sowing, but, alas, that is not what CEO Jason Lake meant.

Gamers plead for anything but God’s mercy.

Gamers plead for protection to continue playing with their violent video games.

Gamers plead that God provide the means by which they can continue to play childish shoot-em-up role-playing virtual reality non-sense games ~ anything but the reality of repentance.

A man who identified himself as the general manager of another esports team, eUnited, wrote on Twitter that players, managers and owners should have separate entrances and exits from the fans, and another observer lamented the loss of an important part of esports culture — the “loose” rules that once allowed fans to mingle with players.

“That was cool at the time,” the person tweeted, “but the investment is there to provide top-of-the- line security, so let’s make sure all the big events have it!
