I have known this LGD for a long time. When we meet they are used to calling each other with the words “b * st * rds” or “do * s”. It may sound rude but it does not mean to insult them and they know it.
I am very uncontrolled about my words that might make people who do not understand me well will think differently. My words caused some negative reactions, so I’m here to apologize for all Dota 2 fans.
