To ensure the subreddit isn't completely taken over by the Chessbrahs and Hikaru drama currently unfolding, a moratorium on new drama posts is currently in effect. Please post any new twitch clips and opinion threads related to this topic as a response to this thread as they may otherwise be removed. News articles and major developments may be allowed as standalone threads at the moderation team's discretion. If in doubt, you may always message the moderation team via our modmail and we will try to get back to you ASAP.
This thread will be updated as the story develops, and depending on how long this debacle lasts, further threads may be created to ensure the megathreads themselves don't kill off the conversation.
Please post your thoughts, questions or concerns with our decision to create the megathread in the stickied comment in the first thread (link here) to ensure the rest of the thread is on-topic and not drowned out by subreddit meta fighting. We will try to answer them as best we can!
