I don't really get this honestly. I think having local leagues representing its people has been working fine. What's bringing some sort of an international bureau into it going to accomplish? Who does it benefit?
Only people I'd see actually gain something from this are the few teams that might possibly go to another continent to play video games. To me that doesn't even seem too beneficial since the americans don't seem to have problems winning on an eu ruleset.
For the rest of us it seems it'd just make it harder to have things we like happen. If, for example, eu players like or want something that the others don't, what will happen? Right now the answer seems simple, ETF2L does what its playerbase wants. By the community, for the community type of thing as you say. I'm afraid that if we get some global org to meddle in these decisions the local people who actually play on the leagues will have less power over what they'll play, which obviously isn't a good thing. I don't care how the americans, aussies, asian players or whoever play 6's, since it doesn't affect me. I care about what the community I'm in plays.
So ye, in short I don't see why players from whichever league should let others who will never play in their league have any say in what they do.
If this happens I want some big dick energy titanium spine type of guy to represent eu, not some weeb........
