New Chinese regulations in practice – one of the promising players had to say goodbye to the CS: GO community.
Starry is a 16-year-old CS: GO player who got pretty big after his action against G2. The competitor was able to eliminate 5 opponents on his own. The joy, however, did not last long.
A promising player, unfortunately, had to say goodbye to the whole community a moment later. His action gained so much popularity that the information about the actions of the Chinese government reached even more people.
Farewell for 2 years
The player on his official social profile thanked for such kind words. The translation is not perfect, but you know what it is about. Immediately after the thanks, there was also some sad news.
As the player is 16 years old, he is subject to the new Chinese regulations. These allow persons under the age of 18 to only play for one hour a day, and only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at certain times – 20:00 to 21:00 local time.
Thank you so much for your support, everyone.
I have never received so much acclaim in my life as today. I am really happy that we managed to beat G2 on one map, and that I was able to show what I can do.
Due to some “speechless” restrictions, today’s match should be my last one in two years. There’s nothing I can do about it.
So it’s kind of a perfect final bow for me.
Anyways I am really happy today.
Really appreciate everyone’s support >_<
The situation is really hopeless and there will be more and more such cases. On more positive news, Lynn Vision, the Chinese team, is exploring the possibility of moving to Europe or at least allowing the player to play there.
Such cases will be louder and louder now, some Chinese teams will have to consider moving from China to other countries. This is true for CS: GO as well as for other games like League of Legends.
