I do not officially speak for RGL but this thread is giving me a headache.
BuffMcStrongHugeLiterally can't play with times as early as they are. Why have you just decided to make a default and remove the flexible scheduling system esea had provided.
It still exists. Teams will reschedule matches just like they did in esea. People are aware esea also had default times that didn't get forced as well right? Nobody in the council meetings even discussed default match times because we were under the assumption that teams are able to be normal human beings and schedule accordingly. If not, contact an admin and it can be dealt with on a case by case basis.
plunkif this is """""traditional sixes"""" keep the sigafoo sixes gimmicks out of it.
follow global whitelist
work with other leagues and orgs to reach a global map pool and rule set.
ez right? 4Head
I think there were a couple more heads behind the decision making than just one. Just for the record, sigafoo also attempted to get a representative from the paddie/corsa team as well. There was a *ton* of discussion that went into the decisions for the league.
bearodactylim really curious to see what went through sigafoo's head that led him to the decision to take this map thread from a year ago that nobody even played or really gave proper feedback about and go 'yep, this one's a keeper'
even the lucrative new map test thread says it was untested like why on earth did they choose it lmao
Your links are from ages ago, the map is still receiving updates. The map was suggested to us by lucrative as a viable koth map. The council (sans-b4nny) all wanted to see the inclusion of an additional koth map. Suggested options included: Coalplant, Bagel, Avalanche, and Clearcut.
There is nothing wrong with wanting a better map pool, and the best way to achieve that goal is to remove the worst offending maps. Say what you like about badlands/granary but badlands was unanimously agreed upon as the worst map in the pool by all parties present (and was additionally the most banned map in esea according to tri iirc). Granary didn't fare much better.
DreamboatWelp, the 2 things I really wanted from this league didn't happen.
No universal map pool
No universal format.
Looks like insomnias, copenhagen games and other intl lans will have the same issues that happened last ISeries, where a team had to play a map they dont play in their region in the grand finals.
Honestly, love or hate the format or map pool, I cant be the only one that sees the benefits of playing the same format and maps in every region of TF2?
It would be nice to have a universal ruleset, but no actual efforts have been made by any parties towards achieving one.
RGL does reserve the right to maintain exclusive access to the STV as they see fit.
This also worries me slightly. Not that sigafoo would ACTUALLY do it, but this gives him the power to do to TFTV what EVLTV did to him.
(For those who weren't around back then, apparently what happened is EVL would get UGC to change STV passwords so that sigafoo couldn't cast them in an effort to stop him from streaming the same game, and i believe also other games as well.)
I for one am of the opinion that the people in our community aren't petty children. RGL wishes to centralize the casts for specific matches to increase viewership. It isn't intended to malicious in the slightest and it is annoying seeing people spinning it that way.
