Gorgc Thinks Some Dota 2 Streamers Are Faking Positive Mental Attitude
In a recent livestream, Team Bald Reborn’s captain and popular livestreamer within the Dota 2 community Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski gave his thoughts on Dota 2 streamers faking having a positive mental attitude in a game during livestreams.
While Gorgc is famously well-known for his
desk-smashing casual attitude when it comes to playing ranked matches live on stream, he is also known for being one of the few Dota 2 players that have become successful by making a living out of live streaming while also staying competitive.
Gorgc thinks that both Grubby & Dendi are the few exceptions
Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski recently talked about seeing other Dota 2 streamers having a fake positive mental attitude (PMA) during his recent livestream. He also noted that he dislikes people faking their own personalities during livestreams.
“You know, there are a lot of people….I don’t really want to call out names but you guys can probably figure that out by yourselves. Like there are a lot of streamers having this fake PMA bullshit during livestreams and being like 'Oh yeah, I totally do not get angry in video games' but off the camera they’re totally different. There’s a lot of them faking it, and I can’t personally watch streams like that.”
While he stated that he was speaking based purely on experience, he also noted that it is better for Dota 2 streamers to be themselves instead of pretending to be a person with a positive mental attitude during livestreams.
“I think it’s ok to try to have a better attitude a bit, however I prefer to keep it real because it’s cool when you are yourself. But if you are faking it, who are you planning to be?”
He ended the discussion by excluding the likes of Danil "Dendi" Ishutin & newcomer Manuel "Grubby" Schenkhuizen, as he believed that these two are the perfect example of having a positive mental attitude.
“I think Grubby is a real one [who has a positive mental attitude] based on his streams alone. He ain’t a fake one. I think Dendi is also another example of a person having the perfect mental attitude, he’s cool as well.”
Gorgc's belief that it is better for Dota 2 streamers to be themselves instead of pretending to be someone they're not during their streams, is a belief that have been echoed by many successful mainstream streamers including Imane "Pokimane" Anys.
