HildrethIt's funny cos even though I despair at the thought of playing RGL Sigafoo is actually right whether you disagree with his methods or not and I am guessing most people don't even play RGL or watch it nor fund it they just are insulted that Sigafoo is doing something not 6v6. Personally I wouldn't be insulted by this if I was always challenging Froyo, I would be more insulted that people are trying to stop me getting free prize money now that the best team in the league are restricted.

It's also funny people are trying to decide what should or should not be disrespectful to Ascent or whoever else failed to challenge them. I think truth kinda hurts here. Sometimes it does in TF2.

Is this parody? This is hands down one of the most narcissistic viewpoints on competition I've ever seen. You would be genuinely upset that the community isn't banning the best team? That the community isn't allowing you an undeserved 1st place? That you couldn't make marginally more money? There are so many questions. Where are your explanations? You made a sweeping claim that he was right. Based on what? Are there statistics on how many players are playing now that froyo is banned? I mean, probably not, right? The season hasn't started. Is there a way to qualify that more people playing RGL due to froyo's ban is "better for TF2?" It's very clearly not a popular league, nor will it be anything that Valve supports. So...?

All I can infer from this is that you're highly narcissistic. You value the potential money that you'd earn and the "work you've put in" over winning the league fairly. Other teams, like froyo, put in work as well. It's a competition; the players who can be most effective under the rules of the competition deserve to win. One's own bitterness and exasperation that they aren't good enough isn't an exception and shouldn't be supported.

Also, lol? From the words of Ascent players themselves, it is disrespectful to act like they put no work in. You could assume based on that admission that it's disrespectful to ban froyo to allow 2nd place teams to finally win, because then they've effectively avoided work entirely to win. This post is one wild ride, man.

nykTwiggyzenmodeThe problem is, no other league has these sort of restrictions for their highest division. Sure, you see a points system in lower ETF2L divs to prevent sandbagging, but any rule restricting team composition in TOP level play is generally going to be regarded as suspect, no matter what you do.Yeah well its his league, his time, his money, and it's worth trying, if the rule makes sense.

Also whats up with NBA I thought these guys had a salary cap in place. I dont know shit about basketball so what point are you trying to make?
That Bob Meyers is definitely better than Danny Ainge and if u disagree ur either blinded by snake hate or green love

I don't know what it means speak layman english pls thanks

In a world where this rule is a good and positively perceived way to tackle this "problem" of a superteam, I am not even sure if this would solve the issue.

Correct me if I am wrong, but over the course of the 16 mentioned ESEA seasons only one player has been on the team for every single one of them. From what I gather by scrolling thru this thread there are 20something players only from last and next iterations of ESEA, RGL and i63 on froyotechs roster. All of which won titles, thus can indubitably be counted as "one of the best players in North America". The only player (as far as I am aware) that won all of these seasons with ever-changing teammates is b4nny.
Most players from Froyo will simply opt to not play in the season, because they cba playing with - in their minds - B level players (or the for them unbeloved format), leaving b4nny to form another unbeatable team.
b4nny himself by being "too good" is the problem. But fortunately he can't and shouldnt be banned for that, so they are trying this approach

(All of this was written assuming having a superteam is a problem.)

(PS: Se7en is safe.)

Not allowing a single player to play with one another seems more like a punishment than a restriction put in place to aid in competitive balance. I have not paid attention to TF2 in quite some and am unaware of the current climate, so I will not pretend to know what is right. My initial response was simply going to be: getgo0d. But if you feel like this is what is needed for the community and you have the courage to act on it, more power to you. Your event, your decision, your rules.

I prefaced my post with saying banning froyo is dumb. I fully grasp the UGC analogue. Even if Froyo were wholly unbeatable it would still be dumb to ban them because of how innately unfair that is. All my post addressed was what seems to be a contradiction between people who on the one hand get pissed when sigafoo claims other teams don't really try enough but on the other hand have optimism people can beat froyo even though the logical conclusion assuming that teams like Ascent really do try hard enough is that Froyo as a team contains a level of skill which far surpasses any other team, because something has to explain why they shitroll everyone. And if that were the case, I, like sigafoo, would feel pretty cynical about the state of competitive tf2. I wouldn't do what he did, but I'd be cynical.

It would've been cooler if sig had put a bounty on froyo's head. "If anybody can take them down, your winnings will be 50% higher" or something.

By removing them from the league you've effectively lowered the skill ceiling of the entire population. Now nobody has to bother being that good at the game, they just have to be above the next guy. I get that froyo roosting first is annoying but being that good isn't impossible.
It forces the next team to strive for that level of effort (even if it takes a long time to get there)

I actually really like this idea. Instead of punishing froyo, you're essentially complimenting them. And, of course, adding additional incentive to improve.

SpaceCadetThis is literally a more fucking stupid idea than the idea to create a 7v7 league.

FROYO is a Dynasty in TF2. They earned the right to keep winning until players dethrone them.

I'm sure glad they didn't just ban the Green Bay Packers and Montreal Canadians in the 60's/70's
or ban the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 70's
or ban the NY Islanders in the 80's, the Boston Celtics of the 80's, the Edmonton Oilers of the 80's, the LA Lakers of the 80's, the SF 49ers of the 80's
or ban the Chicago Bulls of the 90's, the NY Yankees of the 90's
etc
etc

Makes as much sense as if UEFA were to ban Real Madrid and Barcelona from all future Champions Leagues

It's possible that those teams wouldn't be possible now since you don't see the best teams possible in the NFL. Due to the salary cap put in place in 1994. While the NFL didn't place rules directly against those teams, they did place rules to make it less likely to happen again.

SpaceCadetor ban the NY Islanders in the 80's,the Edmonton Oilers of the 80's

NHL: Salary cap added in 2004.

SpaceCadetthe Boston Celtics of the 80's, the LA Lakers of the 80's

NBA: Soft "salary" cap added in 1984.

SpaceCadetthe NY Yankees of the 90's

MLB: Luxury tax added in 1997.

So you can see almost all of the teams you listed either existed before or could have been the direct reason why the rules would put into the league. Might be why you haven't listed any team that's existed in the last 20 years. Because virtually all North American leagues have seen the value in having talent spread around a league rather than on one team.

Even when you get a great team in modern sports, like the Patriots, while they are very good, they still lose games because they can't stack all of the best players onto their team.

FermiMakes as much sense as if UEFA were to ban Real Madrid and Barcelona from all future Champions Leagues

Soccer is the is the closer comparison since, to my knowledge, no European leagues have any sort of caps on spending. Which is why you also have fairly predictable local leagues. For instance in the NFL, the last 12 seasons have had 11 different teams win the championship. Whereas if you want to find the last 7 different winners of the English Premier League (since Premier is only 20 teams compared the NFL's 32 teams), you'd have to go back almost 30 years to find 7 different winners of the premier league.

But if you look at the UEFA Champions Cup, see it being broken up a bit more. A bit harder to maintain year after year winning success with teams who are able to spend similiar amounts money as you on talent. Plus, there is too much top-tier talent to contain onto one team.

But even with that, there's a difference between a team consistently winning championships and a team who goes undefeated, never losing games and is blowing out their opponents who are supposed to be of equal skill. So it's a bit funny for SpaceCadet to list all of these teams, only to have the truth be that... The leagues did make rules against those teams, they are just more formulated and league-wide. Which is one of the negative aspects of the temporary rule that we created, that it's so focused on one team, rather than doing what every other major professional sports league in NA has done, which is a league-wide rule to have talent more distributed through out the league.

And there's an even larger difference between professional players putting in 40 hours a week trying to grind out to beat their best competition and a recreational league with small prize pools. Where a majority of players do this in their spare time. All of this is included in the revised article, that we would not have made this same decision if this was a league of full-time professional gamers. Because that would be different situation. Context is important in making decisions.

Again, context, this isn't about a team winning 3 seasons in a row. How'd they do throughout the season and how is the second/third place teams doing. Are they poaching the best players from other teams to further the skill gap.

However, if they won 8 seasons in a row, every major competition for 3 years, didn't lose a single match in 2 years and at the end of it all the gap from 1st to 2nd seems it's largest after all the time, not getting closer. Because the Grand Finals was a 5-0 roll on back to back maps. Then that's something we consider. The problem is that most people are incorrectly grabbing the headline and not thinking about and just saying "sigafoo is banning good teams!" rather than realizing this is an unordinary rule for a truly unordinary situation. Not just a good team who just happen to win a couple times.

And we have zero interest in doing this rule again for another team. If we do consider to do something again to help the balance of our competitive ecosystem. We would follow the guidance of what every other major competitive sports league in NA has done and do a more league-wide rule which affects all teams.

However, if they won 8 seasons in a row, every major competition for 3 years, didn't lose a single match in 2 years and at the end of it all the gap from 1st to 2nd seems it's largest after all the time, not getting closer. Because the Grand Finals was a 5-0 roll on back to back maps. Then that's something we consider. The problem is that most people are incorrectly grabbing the headline and not thinking about and just saying "sigafoo is banning good teams!" rather than realizing this is an unordinary rule for a truly unordinary situation. Not just a good team who just happen to win a couple times.

And we have zero interest in doing this rule again for another team. If we do consider to do something again to help the balance of our competitive ecosystem. We would follow the guidance of what every other major competitive sports league in NA has done and do a more league-wide rule which affects all teams.

All players can play vidya games if want to, nothing is stopping them from registering in our league within our rules and if we had a majority of players wanting to play. We'd increase the restrictions we put into place.

Forgive me if i'm wrong here, but I dont think there are more than 7 teams of a tier anywhere near froyotech that every player can join. Essentially you are banning at least half of froyotech from playing or forcing them to play on a team not anywhere near their skill level.

sigafooAptsigafooI have no issue with giving b4nny money every 3 months, what I do have an issue with is not having a healthy competitive ecosystem. b4nny is playing this season, would be happy to pay out to him again.We'll see how quickly that changes when the next team he plays on wins 3 more seasons in a row.

I point out again that, seeing as your gamemode is entirely different to 6v6, his winning is 6s is irrelevant. Only his winning in prolander matters, so he's only 3 seasons won, which as you say, isn't a problem.
