Hey, the following post reflects my opinions/thoughts, not that of anyone/anything else.
boxcartwiiku was on bear's stream last night, they said they've had something in development for a few weeks now and (anyone who knows better feel free to correct me if im wrong) it will take 2 years to implement a class system into the UI
Wrong, what I said is that FACEIT took a long time to provide with an update they promised a while ago, and that such a feature, if they would even consider adding it, would take even more time. It wasn't nice or fair of me, software development, especially at that scale, is more complicated than most can imagine. It was a snarky remark posted because I am generally apathetic at this point.
Hilariously, you've posted logs of me saying "please don't post logs again" and failed to convey the idea that you were mistaken. Please don't speak in anyone else's name ever again, I hope this is clear enough.
You, as a community, were forced to take a bad decision, either suffer through unfun TF2PL pugs in hopes that it would suddenly get better, or continue playing on a comfortable site that has proven to have "grand scheme of thing" flaws. It's an unfortunate turn of events, but it's a completely understandable decision. Hopefully we manage to keep the lower level players interested, hopefully we manage to provide something good enough for everyone at some point.
FACEIT are the only ones, in 2018, to consider dishing out $600 per month to players for nothing in return (I'm aware of Essentials.TF, but their partnerships probably include viewership/advertisement), they're releasing something similar to League seasons sometime soon (VALVe time), and I highly think that ditching the shitshow that is ESEA would be a grand idea, with the added benefits of having a centralized competitive platform. I'm just rambling at this point.
It's hard to directly address ignorant people, they don't know that they're ignorant, and although I haven't read much of this thread (they get boring at this point), I have seen a few crop up. I'll attempt to be blunt: You don't know shit about programming, product development, organization management, and everything else that this project had to make us learn. You don't see what's behind the scenes. Stop giving your uninformed and unsolicited advice.
This applies to anyone generally, learn to be a nice person, it might be hard, but it is becoming a requirement. A lot of the issues we had to face were caused by short temper, anger management issues, lack of empathy, etc. It happened on TF2PL, it will happen on any platform in the future if you don't make the fucking change, you're just dragging everyone else down, especially the few last people who are willing to contribute to this hell hole.
Thank you very much.
