GentlemanJonMoist_PenguinThis isnt really directed at you anymore nuze more just a rant, sorry.There's only one factor you need to take into account here, it begins with P and end with ermzilla
I'm not sure the difference between 200 signups and 300 signups (for example) is really significant or meaningful at all - personally I think tiers provides a better league/playing experience and that's most important for tf2 in my opinion. It's all very well looking to improve tf2 as an esport but you have to have some realism thrown in there as well.
I'm open for debate for whether it's actually benefited the league or not, but I don't think it's causing these poor signups. The long con lads.
