Twitch's ban of Dr. Disrespect always seemed a function of business and contract law as much as any breach (or lack thereof). So it's no surprise that Twitch's slow march of new exclusive content creators Logic, Ninja, and Shroud, has appeared to rankle Dr. Disrespect.

So what can we take from his "three new cadets" anecdote? Anything? Nothing? As is so often the case in Virtual Legality, the truth is likely somewhere in between.

But just because it isn't certain, doesn't mean that a small victory lap isn't warranted...in Virtual Legality.
