    Lol this is toooooo funny. Dipshits of the world let me enlighten you, hacking is like kung fu. The “best” in that professional will NEVER publicly put themselves or their abilities under a PUBLIC spotlight. PERIOD. So if u think some fag event called major league hacking (literally the equivalent of major league gaming) is setiously going to “showcase” the “best” hacker than ur retarded all u will see at that event is the same fags in MLG. Nerds who still live with their rents who JUST graduated from a tech school/class so they THINK they are amazing “hackers” but in reality they r just fags using common everyday tools ANY ONE can use/so if they just went to school etc for it. Aka GEEK SQUAD FAGS because that’s another group of tech fags that boasts and ACTS like they know EVERYTHING about pcs when they r really just fags who JUST graduated. U will NEVER find the “best” hacker in the world because THEY are aware of how illegal hacking actually is and they aren’t trying to get under the spot light in ANYWAY the fact thst an event like this exists is proof all the “fake” gamer fag hackers just trying to make it something it’s not. If u wete a TRUE hacker u wouldn’t want an event like this and u def wouldn’t ATTEND it it’s literally a slap in the face to ALL hackers. It’s like why not.make an event on the deep web? Major league deep webing? Oh u know why? Because it’s not something YOU FUCKEN PROMOTE! A TRUE hacket keeps their identity HIDDEN! That is the definition of the “best” hacker ever. Is someone that can hack anyone/anything and STILL REMAIN UNKNOWN not someone who goes to an event and PUBLICLY shows you WHO THEY ARE and how it was done. That my friends is NOT a hacker. That my friends is again just mire gamer fags who want to make tournaments and leagues out of again.shit thst shouldn’t be. More like major league teachets and students of IT school. Cuz like i said NO HACKER would willingly expose them self or show u their craft. So whoever wins that can “think” they r a hacker nothing more than a fag who just graduated a tech school so.u can win a video game aka just more gamer fags. Pretty much all it is leave it to that crowd to promote something so.dumb. must suck living with ur rents still and having no life to make game how they r now and then to further.more have that same fag community try and make “hacking” like it’s something part of their crowd and it needs exporsure lmao. Literally goes against EVERYTHING a hacker is. Like i said bottom line. A true hacker does not expose their identity or skills. End of story.
