Anyway, turns out the no-girls-on-the-internet rule prevailed in this one case, because Ellie was some guy pretending to be a female gamer to prove… I dunno. That girls exist on the internet, maybe, but, like, ironically? Although the team hasn’t confirmed it, some people in the esports scene are claiming that Ellie was Punisher, an amateur player.
“Ellie is not Ellie,” streamer Becca “Aspen” Rukavina told viewers on Twitch. “The whole situation was meant to be, in a way, a social experiment. Ellie is actually Punisher, and he told me yesterday, so there you go.”
