    A games firm has denied rumours that a male developer ‘virtually teabagged’ and ‘team-killed’ a female journalist whilst showing off its new game.

    Yesterday, the internet lit up after an unnamed games industry worker allegedlyperformed a simulated sex act on the digital corpse of a woman he slaughtered in cyberspace.

    Amanda Farough, the journalist who identified herself as the victim of the teabagging, said she had been bombarded with ‘fat jokes, hateful “liberal woman” memes and bullshit comments’ after sharing her heartbreaking story.
    ...
    The game firm then offered a point-by-point rebuttal of the accusations and continued: ‘Our game does not have team killing.

    ‘That gameplay footage was recorded prior to PAX East with devs and members of our community. No press was involved.

    ‘We would NEVER disrespect press like that. That’s me, a dev, getting teabagged.’

    Hahaha holy shit, someone took being tbagged in a fps as a "sexual act" and took it personally? Maybe gaming press isn't for her.

    Hah! I'm already blocked by her. I'm betting she uses that old blockbot of Randi Harper's.

    Broke: gamergate is a harassment campaign against feminists

    Woke: TERFs are aligned with gamergate

    Turns out Ellie was Punisher all along. Taking bets if Kotaku posts a retraction?

    A link #GGers are more likely to click:
    https://www.mirror.co.uk/tech/overwa...sment-13812801

    Nothing personal Eldo, but Kotaku and Nathan Grayson don't deserve any clicks.

    The Kotaku story had more info. I'm no gamergater, however, so I don't give a shit about your tribes. I just laugh at how bad the gaming press is.

    Copy that. The new hot take is that Punisher was doing this "as a social experiment". Le sigh.

    I THINK he was trying to show that, while he was ignored for a roster spot as a man, a woman of his ability would get instantly picked up. But what he's really done is harm all future women seeking entry into competitive gaming, and made all the players who thought there was no way this "Ellie" could just appear on the ladder at so high a rank with no one knowing who she was appear to be misogynistic assholes to the (incompetent) gaming press which is always seeking signs of "toxic masculinity" in professional esports.

    Holy shit Kotaku posted an update. They've not appologized for accusing Overwatch Esports of misogyny, but at least they're acknowledging the new information.

    Update - 10:30 PM, 1/04/19: Since the publication of this story, new signs have emerged that Ellie may not have been who people thought she was. Earlier today, Aspen, an Overwatch streamer for esports organization Cloud 9, claimed that top-500 player Punisher—her friend—was Ellie after all. “Ellie is not Ellie,” she said during a stream. “The whole situation was meant to be, in a way, a social experiment. Ellie is actually Punisher, and he told me yesterday, so there you go.”Since then, Ellie’s ex-team, Second Wind, has confirmed that Ellie was an impostor and that “the Ellie account was used for purposes we do not support.”

    Rumors have circulated, but as of right now, there’s still no clear answer to who Ellie actually is. Kotaku has reached out again to all of the relevant parties and will continue to follow this story as new information emerges.

    Don't hold your breath waiting for it. If they even acknowledge the previous accusation it will only be to double down.
