look at this goober
I know that I'm a little late on this, but that video is one of the worst takes I've seen on the FACEIT Platform. Man goes in wanting to play casual TF2, is surprised when a competitive platform isn't full of hoovys, trolldiers and people who kill bind when they get funny kills. He spends 10+ minutes basically saying that the system sucks and is going to die then says "I want it to succeed". Basically equating it to Meet Your Match and blames the competitive community (???) for both.
Thing is, the system isn't perfect. Matches are still unbalanced, partying up is almost a guaranteed win, map pool is a little limited etc. But FACEIT provides another option to play TF2 thats a mix between 'wacky' casual and 3rd party competitive. With the addition of a 6s queue we actually have a nice transition for players from being new at the game to starting their first season of comp.
Fresh Install -> Casual -> Community Servers -> FACEIT 12s -> FACEIT 6s -> In-house PUGs/TF2 Center -> 6s/HL
A seamless transition from casual to competitive is something we've needed for a while, as its currently really hard to get into actual competitive. So this pubber YTber whining that "ITS NOT CASUAL" is so ridiculous it would be funny if it weren't so infuriating. FACEIT needs improvements, as all things do, but having an actual organisation like them behind the competitive community only benefits us.
So long as FACEIT is receptive to feedback for their 12s and 6s queue, if and when it happens, I think that the competitive community should try to support it when possible (notsponsoredbtw). I don't want this to go the same way that Pro League did, where both sides were unwilling to compromise or put in the effort, and it seems that they are quite keen to continue working with TF2 so long as it benefits them.
TL;DR: YTber is dumb, FACEIT needs improvements but is good for us.
