To respond to the insult, Nik tweeted something of his own, stating that he doesn’t block people from games. He doesn’t rank the recreational players he wants to play with; he battles ANYONE. And most importantly, when he gets owned, he doesn’t ask for a refund. This last statement was a side jab to Adelstein’s accusations against Robbi Jade Lew.
