Regarding Dapr/Mike

First off, the term "throwing" was used loosely in this context and it was used to convey poor performance via reckless and uninformed plays without reason.
The contrast between Mike's in-game decision making online and LAN is like night and day.
However, it was still not the main reason why we decided to replace him, as that type of thing is easily improved through mutually respectful communication within the team.
The main reason we decided to change our roster is because of his intractable attitude problem. For months prior to the MDL LAN, Mike had horrible attitude problems that would stem from minimal mistakes in practice, or his own bad personal performance.
In total, our biggest issue with Mike was his inability to take criticism and his snap reaction to transfer blame, or deflect.
Anytime feedback would be given to Mike, it would lead to a back and forth argument on how it wasn't why we lost the round and X mistake was really what we should focus on. I’m sure you’ve been in one of these endless arguments, where tangential stuff starts getting brought up in order to save one selves position in said argument.
His attitude problems outweighed any amount of skill he had as a player and had a huge negative impact on the team environment.

We wish Mike the best of luck on his future endeavors.
