Logan from Teksyndicate = rude

So Logan, Who you may know from TekSyndicate said the most rude thing on twitter.
We possibly all know him, as he is fairly known.


https://twitter.com/Logan_RTW/status/502581125806825472

Incase someone cant see...

He said the following.

Peasants always start arguments with: "I have a $3000 gaming rig but console is superior."  No, you don't. Keep flipping burgers and stfu.


So lets break this down.

He starts off Immediately calling people peasants.
He then quotes the line "I have a $3000 gaming rig but console is superior." Meaning he is talking about what "Peasants" says.

Now, the rude part by far, He says to the line he quoted therefor talking to the "Peasants" He refers to... No, you don't.
And follows up telling them to Keep flipping burgers and stfu.


So console players who enjoy it over a PC are peasants who flip burgers for a living?

 

Probably the worse thing I ever seen someone well known and from what I know a respected member in PC's would say such a thing.


I really feel like going crazy on sending this to certain places just to show him how words like that can be taken very hard.


Idk if I am taking it out of context but from what I see and broken it down into, I am not taking it the wrong way, and understand he is trash talking console players who therefor work flipping burgers.

I got turned on to Tek

I got turned on to Tek Syndicate about a month ago.  I burned through their "The Teck" and "WASD" playlists quickly and really enjoy their shows.  I follow Logan too and saw that message today. It did seem a bit over-dramatic.  Watch any of his videos and you'll find out quick he has no love for console evangelists, but I agree this one could have been worded differently orrrr left in his head.  Seems like a decent enough guy though.

I think hes more saying that

I think hes more saying that some console fanboys will lie and say they have a 3K system but then say a console is better, trying to "prove you wrong".. if they truly have a 3K system, then they would know a console is not better.

I have a $1400 pc and... its much better than a console (I have the xb1 as well). Now, there are games I would prefer to play on a console....(like racing)  but really, pc is better

How does he know this? Why would he assume someone who loves consoles DONT HAVE A $3000 Gaming PC? "Used as example from his post"
Its rude as hell. Why would you say something so disgusting when people are trying to make a living.

What relation does Flipping Burgers and Consoles have that isn't in this sense of seeing of how it goes out to sound?

Also who cares if a console is better or not, we all know whats better and worse for multiple reasons.

I could be looking at this wrong, I admit... But how it just sounds Perfectly worded together Dissing a console, relating it to a job, and degrading it.
Just peeves me off when someone who is known like that can say it with no actions taken towards him.

I mean hell, if it was like one of us forum users who said anything remotely like that, you could end up in the blacklist of doom in every email you send out.

Poor choice of words

Poor choice of words obviously. I like Logan and the work he does. Started tuning in since they made that i5 3570k vs fx 8350 comparison which is in my opinion the most unbiased comparison between AMD and Intel CPUs I've seen. Anyway, there sure are worse guys in the industry. This is just trolling that went bad.. for you that is.

 I have a total of 6 test systems most of them high end systems but even the one mid range I have is faster and better at gaming than any console.

It has nothing to do with being faster or not though, yes console gamers would talk smack about something possibly so do pc, but to say what ones job is because they like console over pc? Thats just sad and low.

No wonder we don't see some of the more enjoyable games Console only end up on PC. Lol

Yeah, It's nice he apologized or w/e, But anyone can come up with words a week later.
Its just you don't say that sort of stuff, its ignorant.
I know it could have been taken out of context like I see it because of how it was worded but cmon...

We all know consoles are worse than computers, its a fact, so why do people keep bringing it up.

I will give him props, just seriously he should watch how he says things, As does he post content and reviews without re-reading what he wrote? Why couldn't he have done that with his twitter post and worded it FAR better.

I'm definitely not condoning

I'm definitely not condoning his comment in the slightest.  There are a few things that he beats to absolute death in most of his broadcasts/jokes/content, VPN's and consoles being two of the most prominent.  Unfortunately he just comes off a bit shallow and incendiary most of the time.  I think at worse he just lacks a certain amount of tact.  But what do I know, I've only been watching for the past month so my opinions are fairly undeveloped.
