#12 Lockdown Throwdown online event announced in News

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.

  1. 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)
  2. to host the main channel, KritzKast, when your match is being streamed; especially important for the Semi & Grand Finals.

#26 KritzKast make their VOD's subscriber only in TF2 General Discussion
NikIf it's just your intention (as an owner/organizer/the person who brought them together) to support them this way, then they are still volunteers.

No-one was asking for it.
Just seemed like the right/only thing to do.
Glad we can agree.

#21 KritzKast make their VOD's subscriber only in TF2 General Discussion
NiksigafooSo a group of people who volunteer their free time, energy and effort
Then it's not volunteering

I'd equate it to volunteers at a soup kitchen getting a cup of tea at the end of a shift. Maybe just a glass of water. Maybe a small glass of water every other shift. Tap water. Are you still okay to claim this doesn't make them volunteers?

SirDuckI imagine that KK being ran at a loss for so long probably started to annoy Agro

I'm not annoyed by it... but, it's not a great feeling either. We've been loosing less each year for the last few years so it's getting less shit. I'm gambling that moving the podcast stream off the twitch channel so that it's now 100% comp will show that we're serious about our TF2 coverage. And that maybe 2020 will be profitable enough to buy a round at LAN.

#13 KritzKast make their VOD's subscriber only in TF2 General Discussion

TL;DR: Some content is behind a firewall because we wanted to give people who sub to KritzKast a decent reason to do it. KritzKast is and has always been broke as shit.

We've been casting HL matches for a few years and started 6s coverage quite recently. We made the decision to pay casters and production for their time because it's the right thing to do. Everyone puts so much effort in and I didn't see why I should profit just for being the dude that owned the channel.

I'm not sure if this breaks twitch TOS but here goes anyway. We have 6 subscribers, and this is a record for us.

2 are awesome people who've been with us for so many years I've lost track. I doubt that either of them will read this as they're not super into comp but they've supported the channel forever and I love them for it.
2 are on the comp production team. It doesn't make financial sense for them to sub, but they do anyway, cos fuck yeah TF2.
1 is an awesome friend of mine. I sub back to him cos I like his content. For the record I use my money to sub to him, but it shows up "kritzkast" cos that's my twitch account. I should make a personal account for this, and likely I will eventually.
1 is new as of this month, I don't recognise the name but yay! Thanks random person whoever you are.

Very, very occasionally, with the merch, the patreon and YT/Twitch ad. rev. we break even. Most of the time we don't. Everything we have ever earned has gone back into the channel and out to the talent in one way or another. We push all content to YT (it all gets there eventually (it's nearly always on me if it's delayed, sorry)). So we were hoping firewalling old Twitch content would entice people to sub and give those that have a justification for doing so.

#22 question about LAN-streams. in TF2 General Discussion

I can't speak for anyone or any other org here, though I have had the opportunity to work with many of the representatives in the orgs listed. KritzKast started out as a podcast, which in essence is the personal views of a few of people with various scopes of knowledge talking about things they love. For us it was the game itself, the community surrounding that game and beer. Although that last point was probably just me. As our understanding of what keeps this game alive and vital has expanded we too have worked with some very cool people, like Ruskeydoo and more recently Wiethoofd who've had a much more focused interest in competitive, so moving into HL coverage and some other more fringe formats (RSP, 7s, Ultiduo, etc) or events (newbies cups, show matches, various charity) has been possible.

So that's where we came from. The present isn't without problems. The podcast has fallen off the wayside and is in sore need of massive rethinking to create something relevant again. There's a bunch of content that needed to be re-edited before release and I just didn't have the mental fortitude to get through it while maintaining a high intensity job in the City. I'm hoping that now I have some time and a little less to worry about (in the short term) I can push content and get us back on track, then set up the tools to ensure we don't fall behind again in future.

In response to the "this" from OP. Yeah I fucked up and started a stream without changing the old title. Took me a few minutes to set it right. Sorry to anyone who came seeking that content. I've a mind to set up my own channel for content that's neither podcast nor comp stream though that wouldn't be fair on everyone who's subbed to the channel for the podcast and more esoteric content. Likely a better solution would be post a schedule, which may not be a bad idea on the whole, though exceedingly tough to get right with comp matches, even finals not being locked to a day or hour until right before (days, sometimes hours) they occur. But we'll try and get something down.

I don't want to directly address OP's comments on the need for multiple channels. If anyone wants my opinion then come find me at LAN, buy me a beer and be prepared for a long discussion. It's not something that we're going to solve here, nor do I believe that a thread on a discussion board is the right place for it, though always curious to read other people's opinions.

#6 Database or calendar for TF2 events? in TF2 General Discussion
SherwoodfanIs there some sort of site, forum etc out there that regroups most/all the competitive TF2 events happening in the coming weeks/months, across all gamemodes and regions?

Funny you should mention it, I've been working on just such a thing. TF2 events (esport and community) Calendar

I've had some feedback from various groups and have been working that into revisions. I'm comfortable sharing this. The Calendar is free to use in it's read only state. It can be embedded into your site using iframes or linked to directly as in http://events.teamfortress2.com

The view of the information can be adjusted to show various portions of time, day/week/year etc, including an "Agenda" style which is what people will be used to seeing if they usually get their dates from teamfortress.tv. There's even a feature to filter by region. The Calendar though only works in one time zone. I've picked CET (or CEST during the summer) as it's universally used in Europe since it seems to only be relevant to a very small number of people and universally irritates everyone else equally.

SherwoodfanI'm looking into scheduling some things a bit and would like to avoid double scheduling with big events like tournaments, LANs and season playoffs for different leagues.

This is more or less exactly why I started making this but it only works if everyone gets on board. I have notes to share with anyone willing to give me the time. Hit me up on here, or stream or discord.
