LegendaryRQAI don't know the guy vary well beyond "He played in plat" back when that actually meant something. So i don't know about this whole vendetta you're talking about. But i'm whiling to give someone who loves the game enough to put down 4000$ of what i can only imagine is his own money to support a dying scene, the benefit of the doubt.
He held a cup testing this exact format before. He originally had it be 6v6, then changed it to 7v7 when some people disagreed with testing everything at once and not individually, or pointing out that some of these things had in fact been tested before and found to have no merit (at which point everyone disagreed, since a last minute change to 7v7 screwed with a lot of teams and would mean that no one could get any useful info from it).
How much he's cared about what we think since then should be easy to tell just from the format; no real changes, despite it being very obvious even if you never talked to anyone here that it had many big issues. If he's ignorant of its problems, that also means he gives 0 fucks about what the 6s community thinks nowadays. But I don't think Sigafoo's a complete idiot, there's no way he can't be aware that there are legitimate problems with his format, I think it's more likely that he doesn't want to look like he's taking advice from communities like ours (including his playerbase of mostly 6s players who actually entered his previous cup, who have also given detailed feedback) out of spite.
Best case, he thinks none of us know what we're talking about and doesn't even consider our opinions, despite nearly unanimous agreement of the people who played in it. Worst case, he is actively ignoring us because he doesn't like us. Neither one is any good, and however much money he puts into it doesn't change that.
LegendaryRQAAlso forgive me when i don't side with a bunch of whiny 15-year-olds who's first reaction to what is basically an act of charity is just "REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" or "Y THOU xD". You just make the rest of the scene look bad.
Insulting the people who disagree with you doesn't give your own argument validity.
