tf2 has a much larger than average amount of people that leave the house on weekends and due to that many teams don't want to or can't play on friday, saturday or sunday. a lot of tf2 people have jobs. ventures in tf2 have generally failed due to either scheduling assuming weekends are best for players, or the fact that thanks to our 10 year running ability to play for almost nothing, most tf2 players don't heavily value potential for further growth, if it inconveniences them in the present (ex. bad scheduling time, subpar rules/whitelist/map-pool) - which can make working with tf2 hard.
the good thing about working with tf2 players is that we are really passionate when it comes to fulfilling set goals, like our pretty much annual fundraising for LAN events for tf2 players. following from what lucrative said, I believe if given a set goal, like amount of signups over seasons, or donations tiers to reach higher prizepool, there's a lot of people in the community that would really strive to make it happen. i mean torrit would hit the whip AND the nae nae on stream.
I worry for anything coming new for tf2 because I feel like the good parts of the community are never capitalised on, while the apathetic side gets to show its face all the time. It's really important to capitalise on the people that literally burn holes in their own pockets just to make tf2 that bit better.
If the esl play admins read this I think it's really important for you guys to bring in key members of the community, people that have the contacts + understand the community and what we react well to
