just because something is commonplace in business, that doesn't mean it has a place in a competitive video game with a niche audience. this just confirms to me that the censorship was done out of a desire to make smash into a money-making industry rather than a video game. vgbc & ct already have a monopoly on smash content & their influence in the smash community is wider than they realise. at this point, i believe it'd be wise to not only look at how smash can have the benefits of being considered a real sport, but also at how it may become something even better. i may use a lot of words, but my philosophy is simple: we all have the same love for smash as a game, but let's not quit our day jobs. work is work for a reason. maybe if certain people in high places in the community didn't wanna exploit smash financially & make a living off of it, they wouldn't feel the need to pull people off the mic. maybe we'd all be happier & this never would've been a problem in the first place.
there's nothing wrong with having no commercial potential if you're happy with your life already before playing/commentating/streaming/archiving footage of/doing whatever to do with video games.
