Personally, I cannot approve this blatant attempt to help the comptetitive TF2 community to get closer to a unification point with Valve with the undeniable intention to pave the way for TF2 to become an E-Sport.
Our ETF2L staff has, for years, been devoted to finally put an end to Team Fortress 2; especially the gamemode that is commonly known as "Highlander". Ever since our overlord and saviour Permzilla - may he find peace in his exile - (happy birthday) joined the admin ranks on a warm spring friday on 25th may 2012, it has been our mission to follow him in his quest to kill comp TF2. In these almost 7 years we have put countless hours of hard work into sabotaging the league and thus the community from the inside. I mean: we added ctf_turbine in Season 18, we played koth_reservoir in the Highlander Prem Grand Finals (god bless KkaltuU, possibly the best soldier we ever had)... But people would still sign up and enjoy the games. >.<
That's when we decided to cancel our sponsorship-deal with Tte-SPORTS, hoping the top talent would simply lose interest in competing. Sure, as of late our attempts have become more desperate and obvious, like the promotion of not one, but two weebs to Head Admins or simply rigging public polls in order to kill the best map to ever have lived: cp_badlands (press f)... But we still truly believe that we eventually - through more "progressive" mapchoices and especially through the absolutely random bans we are dishing out - will succeed and earn our place at the holy table of our predecessors Permzilla and SonnyBlack.
How dare you hazard this Greater Good after all that we have accomplished. We are soooo close, and here you stand, suggesting individual freedom, creativity and - worst of all- change, sigafoo?
Shame on you. SHAME... ON... YOU!11!1!!
