'The competitor was carried off stage by four employees, by the arms and legs, and the show continued.'Something tells me these guys need more experience on how to handle broken bones.

Lol, whoever said game designers were supposed to be medical professionals?Poor kid, though. I hope he's okay.

@sccorp.scThey don't, but it's the event organizers' job to have one on hand.

I was thinking the same thing. Lets grab the guy who broke his leg, by his leg. Either let him lie there until someone comes with a stretcher, carry him by the arms and have him limp on the good leg. Only thing I can think is, it was a foot or ankle injury.

Frankly, I'm just thankful no one got hurt if anyone tried the male troll dance (I don't know, I don't have the stream) and got their arm/neck injured. Snap! Not meaning to find that funny so much as even in the slightest but I just simply imagine a loud snapping noise in regards to that particular situation.Since we don't know the full specifics, though, we can't quite condemn the Blizzard staff...yet. For all we know, a quick assessment was done to see if it was reasonable to move him, and then just had to get him to a more accessible part of the room.Who knows, all, who knows...?

That was the first thing I thought. I'm not sure where carrying someone by their broken limb would ever seem like a good idea.

The thing(s) that bother me about this, is the potential setback. If Bliz doesn't get sued, bullet is dodged but you can bet they will disallow any dances next year that might result in injury or make people sign waivers before getting out there to dance. Also, possibly more funds being re-directed to first aid training and/or additional first aid staffing. America is so lawsuit happy...I swear.
