Read One Piece 956 Updates: Now is only one day left before the raid on Onigashima and Act 2 comes to end. Luffy finally learns how to use advanced Busoshoku Haki and Zoro gives Enma a test run, and it looks like it can do some serious damage. According to Robin, the enemy is already bigger in terms of numbers. Assuming that Kaido and Big Mom are still buddies, it's only going to get worse. Usopp, Nami, and Chopper are going to cry when they hear about the team up between the two Yonko. Luffy better be prepared to use Haoshoku Haki to thin out the enemy ranks. More bad news is that Orochi knows about the new meeting place and that Hiyori is alive. As for the prisoners in the capital, hopefully someone can free them. Here's a thought. Tama should mix her dangos with the food that is going to Onigashima just like how Orochi mixed the failed SMILEs with the leftovers. Any Gifter who eats Tama's dangos will become allies. Hopefully, the minks will also be able to use their Sulong forms during the battle. Here's another thought. Since it would be extremely difficult (if not impossible) for Luffy to fight both Big Mom and Kaido, Luffy should fight either of them while Zoro fights the other one. If not, then what was the point of mentioning Enma having harmed Kaido? Here are some more questions. Where are Jinbe, Nekomamushi, and Denjiro? Did Kid and Killer had any luck finding their crewmates? Anyway, on to Act 3.

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.
