    So... DM Brandon is at it again.

    Here's the link to the full reddit post, and the Tl;dr is that DM Brandon basically told a suicidal person to commit suicide, then went off on a rant. If you wish to watch the meltdown itself, you can check his latest stream at 1:06:40.

    I personally think this should be the straw that breaks the camel's back. He's done this so many times, but has been forgiven. Enough is enough. His opinions (at least about suicide and mental health) are dangerous, his behavior is beyond toxic, and he should be removed from Hi-Rez before he further damages their brand.

    Actually he didn't tell anyone to commit suicide. He clearly stated how stupid and selfish suicide is. The incident with Shadow just shows how much of an a-hole Brandon is and I have no idea why people watch his streams. I like him as a caster and I think Hi-Rez should keep him as that. But to about this particular case, I agree with DM, for once. Suicide is stupid, selfish, cowards way out. Since I'm all those things, I have thought about it but I'm not stupid enough to ever actually do it. If someone thinks about it, get help for crying out loud. It's out there.

    Except the issue of mental health and suicide is not a black and white topic, which DM's attitude leans towards.
    His characteristic brutal honesty on this was just asking for criticism.

    He thinks he knows Suicide & Depression, when he thinks he knows everything.

    He thinks depression is so easy to get over, when realistically, he wouldn't know how to overcome it unless he has had it.

    I got told I had mild depression and mild anxiety about 1 year ago, and I was absolutely empty and I felt like no one wanted me on the planet. He thinks it's selfish to commit suicide, but when it tricks your mind, it forces you in a way. And it is so invisible too, you don't know who has it. I had gotten over the Depression & Anxiety and I feel much MUCH better now, so don't worry.


    But seriously, he needs to have everything taken away from him, and have the pain of depression upon him. THEN, we can see how he feels.


    [EDIT] It wasn't THAT level of Depression btw ._.

    I've never heard of this guy, save the fact I keep hearing how people dislike him. Sounds like a right jerk though :/

    Don't you find it ironic? Posting stuff like this as a criticism of person, who supposedly told someone to kill themselve?

    I have no way of tracking the exact words of DM Brandon and I appreciate the context of mental health debate giving his faux pas some additional gravitas, but it still strikes me as hipocrisy.

    Yes, he probably is less likely to follow your directions than someone suffering from depression. But still, you are basically telling him to kill himself, ergo doing exact same thing he is condemned for. I say it warrants at least some reflection.

    I have seen the video of the occurance and I can understand and relate to a couple of things he tried to say.

    I said "tried" to say specificly here because the main problem to me is less about the things he said but the way he said it. He got angry, emotional, pushy and very unlikable while saying it, he also twisted around a lot of things he tried to say to the point where they sounded wrong.
