TDR; Drunk AF. Nuff' said. (Took me 4x to write Nuff')
What is TF2 Competitiveness?
I feel as if TF2 has reached a "Meh" feeling for most "pro" players. I use to really anticipate watching a Grand Final of ESEA and the likes. Now-a-days not so much. Don't get me wrong I am always down to watch some 6v6 (And the occasional 9v9, wink wink) but as someone who started watching/playing ~2 years ago I feel as if the competitiveness has dropped in the last year.
Sure, I can see some people in IM or even Open as "Why even try, we can't win" but shit, why play the damn game then? Go fucking playing LoL or Dota if you want to make money playing games... currently TF2 isn't in their league in regards to prize pool.... so if your looking to play for money, be gone. If your looking to be the best of the best sir (Independence Day Reference #cool) then stick around, play your heart out and win those games...
Sure... Froyo (And EVL (No offense)) have the game sense and skill to probably demolish you, fuck it. Play the game because you enjoy it and want to get better. If that isn't the case, see above.
EVL, no offense you didn't hold up to your old glory against Froyo as the last couple of seasons (And even though the casters 'rode' Yomps dick in a sense) he did out perform most seasoned players. Now, this may be the case that Yomps is just a great player (No doubt) but I still feel as though most of EVL should of out shined Yomps because of their default game sense.
Froyo has relatively new players in the invite levels considering b4nny on their team. So in my eyes, even though I am a huge b4nny and Froyo fan EVL should have taken the Season. I just feel as if their heart isn't in it.
Why is this? I wish I knew. I can't devote the time I wish I could to gaming because of life ect. but if I play a game like TF2 (when I can) I play to when, and I feel like EVL did not do so.
I hope, all in all that they rectify this in the future because with the recent changes to TF2 I feel as if we need this to become a staple. IMO, this is observed through the recent upsurge in Subs via B4nny's channel. Yes, some are do to Amazon Prime but IMO not all. We are growing. Fractionally, but as of now what hasn't been fractionally? So let's get the competitive spirit back into Invite/IM and play the fucking game. Who cares if you won or lose... Capre Diem, Seize The Day.
Enough talking, I'm gonna go play some of the limited time I have to play TF2, and enjoy it. You should try to do the same. #drunk out.
