Tino_If you think that the majority of tftv posters are wrong and idiots why the fuck do you even come on here to try and justify yourself to them?dude, "Fuck you, my league, my rules." is literally the worst representation of what sigafoo is doing right now. He is acknowledging critisicm and offering his thoughts on it. Maybe if you took the time to read what he said, you would understand
Like your best response in this situation was literally "Fuck you, my league, my rules." but instead you feel the need to preach about what you are doing to try and flip the people that you yourself admit are idiots. I just dont get it, is it an ego thing or what?
It's an ego thing. It doesn't mean much to acknowledge criticism when the decision has already been made and it doesn't look he's changing his mind anytime soon at least for this upcoming season. You should be fielding thoughts after the season or at least before making the decision. Anything else is stroking his ego to make himself feel better so it looks like hes actually listening to people. On his website:
Your rule is overly harsh
Yes, it is. We know this. We were worried that a lighter rule wouldn't have the desired effect due to many reasons that would take longer to explain. It's possible we went too far and we can re-adjust after this coming season. If we didn't get the desired outcome.
We could be wrong
RGL is about experimenting and trying out new ideas and seeing what works. This season is looking very interesting with three teams who are going to be great, but who knows. Maybe we will get this completely wrong and competition will get worst. We're not afraid to admit our mistakes, but we're also not afraid to take a risk.
After the season is over we can re-evaluate and see if this was a good idea. Did we help balance out the competitive eco-system and see better matches? Etc...
Only time will tell if our decision is wrong. I like many of you, disagree with the idea and I don't think the way we went about it is 100% correct. However, we didn't have a better solution present. So we're going forward with this one for the time being. We'll either be right or wrong, but either way, we'll learn along the way about what effect distributing talent amongst the top teams in the league has as an effect on the league.
All sigfaoo really should have said at all is fuck u 6's players. my money, my rules. But he's already doing damage control. He gets off painting himself like this trail-blazing pioneer of league officiating when he's really just playing both sides. "it's a controversial decision but im doing this for tf2's own good." Too bad you can't paint yourself as a persecuted martyr if you hedge your own bets. Also any 6's invite player that is playing esea while also playing prolander on the side after this ruling is really only legitimizing his league and making yourself come across as a sellout.
