2.7 Players are not allowed to livestream or in any other way broadcast their matches from the tournament!
jnkiwhat the fuck man
I believe the TOS would have been carried over from the Copenhagen LAN where this rule was valid for security reasons (prevent DDoS attacks) and to ensure that singular focus is given to the competition, making it easier to quote things like "this TF2 event pulled in X number of eyeballs". Those metrics are important for us to be able to present as it helps secure better (or in some cases, any) future sponsorship. @ LAN this rule is enforceable on a network level, so no-one can stream from their desktops even if they wanted to. For an on-line only competition there's actually nothing we can do to physically stop you. And during the prelim matches with so many battles going on it may be the only chance for your followers to see you play, assuming we're not covering that match on our stream.
I can only humbly ask that you show some respect here for everyone's enjoyment of the event.
- add a 90 sec delay to your pov stream (to prevent your team running at a disadvantage and your viewers being able to spoil results)
- to host the main channel, KritzKast, when your match is being streamed; especially important for the Semi & Grand Finals.
