One Piece 943 Release Date And Spoilers: Well it looks like it's the end for Yasu. You don't suppose he actually survived all those gunshots, do you? Basically, this whole chapter is Yasu saying his last words, assuming that Oda isn't planning on having another person miraculously surviving again. I was totally expecting Yasui to escape, and I still doubt his death, but it's going to be better off if he is dead or else it was goijavascript:void(0)ng to be all for nothing. Man, that resolution at the end, Oda must have thought really well in naming the artificial devil's fruit “SMILE”, it was all due to greater meaning, classic Oda. The bright side of this chapter is Zoro didn't get lost this time. Anyway, Toko and Hiyori better hide before Orochi sees them. What I am curious about is Hiyori's statement about the SMILE fruits' effect on the people of Ebisu Town. Exactly how do the fruits affect them? I thought Kaido only gives these fruits to his crew. So Yasuie told everyone what's up, now everyone knows how much of a coward Orochi is. Brilliant chapter. I was a bit confused about Yausie and Oden talking it was them, right?. At first I thought they were brothers, because Oden said Yausie would become the shogun, but apparently that was just a joke.? So Yausie is not the witching hour boy? He lied about a few things, but probably he really is not him. I expected Zoro to save him, or anyone, but I guess it's better that way. That "Smile" thing, damn. One Piece is full of very weird people, so those people smiling all the time seemed completely normal. As for them smiling even seeing someone dying, I thought it was some sort of pledge they made, that they would smile, no matter what. I mean, that thing is pretty much believable in One Piece, right? And then we are told that it's because of SMILE. Oh my god, so hence the name, and it's been hundreds of chapters ago... Oda is awesome. I wish there wasn't a break next week, but whatever. I think act 2 will end next chapter.

Olympics chief rules out violent e-sports

Thomas Bach, the president of the International Olympic Committee, has voiced his opposition to including violent e-sports among the sports contested at the Olympic Games. Speaking to the AP on the occasion of the 2018 Asian Games, where demonstration e-sports tournaments were held, Bach said that “We cannot have in the Olympic program a game which is promoting violence or discrimination ... They, from our point of view, are contradictory to the Olympic values and cannot therefore be accepted.”


Bach is himself a former Olympic fencing champion, and he’s surely aware that boxing is an Olympic sport too, but he thinks combat sports are different. Accepting that every combat sports has its root in real fighting among people, he argues that “sport is the civilized expression about this.” Whereas games that involve “killing somebody” are apparently beyond the pale. An uncharitable reading of his words might be that boxing and fencing are familiar and therefore acceptable, whereas games are played out of a black box (tastefully decorated with LED lights, of course) and not something he himself has ever partaken in.
"It’s far from obvious that e-sports fans even care about the Olympics"

Without Bach specifying which e-sports he classifies in his “killer games” category, it’s hard to offer a counterargument. Though it’s still worth noting that the most popular multiplayer competitive games have highly stylized violence that’s usually inflicted by and to mythical creatures. In Valve’s Dota 2, for example, you can be Zeus and smite an undead zombie with a skill called Thundergod’s Wrath. Or you can be a Crystal Maiden and summon a snowstorm around you that brings down a hail of ice shards upon your enemies. These acts of hostile manipulation of the elements can hardly be said to be encouraging people to punch each other in the face. Boxing, on the other hand, can.

In any case, the established e-sports already have thriving professional leagues, and it’s far from obvious that many of their fans even care about inclusion in the Olympics. It would be a final mark of acknowledgement that these digital competitive endeavors are indeed sports, but for a majority of fans, it’s probably not necessary.
