On April 17th, we received the unfortunate news that after ten years of serving as the hub for North American TF2, ESEA had decided to drop support for competitive Team Fortress 2 beyond Season 31.
As a part of our effort to showcase and preserve the history of both ESEA and TF2 in the North American region, we're proud to announce that we will beginning a new series of rebroadcasts of famous matches through the history of North American TF2 on TFTV. These restreams will be dispersed throughout the season, in addition to some other plans to make sure that this season ends on a bang, containing the original casts and production of iconic games selected by our staff.
Furthering this, we are also proud to announce that we intend to bring back historical and retired casters from the North American scene to reprise their roles for the coming season of ESEA. Currently, we can confirm the following casters and analysts will be returning for this season:
While this list is decent, we are still reaching out to more former casters. If you are or know any former casters for TFTV, VanillaTV, or other casting organizations, don't hesitate to reach us on our Discord.
Through this, we hope to expose more people to the history of the North American scene and some of the best games through the years, from Multiplay Insomnia to ESEA Invite LANs. We hope to see you there as we flip back through the history books, starting with Leviathan Gaming vs Classic Mixup at the i46 grand finals!
