#68 Mass shooting at Christchurch, New Zealand in World Events
sacits not really any big consolation, but the curiosity of many people on those imageboards into seeing the video has woken up a disgust for the events that have happened and many are questioning what exactly they thought they were supporting, especially if they interact with the ones cheering.

if lives are potentially saved by helping these kids grow the fuck up, i think that's quite positive, as far as lingering effects go

#159 RGL 6s league in TF2 General Discussion

Imagine if you sent ESEA info on a map exploit, like the grates in Gully back in the day or something, and they were like "Thanks for this and also you're banned for a year"

PeteOkay you're actually so confusing as an individual.

Why in the world would this ban need a reevaluation?

Running a league is all about somehow making the wrong call constantly

#9 changing album cover into background in Off Topic

how's this https://puu.sh/CMvZf/70c60eaacf.jpg

as the others say, low-res images aren't going to look as good. that's why i stayed away from the other cover, it looks like it'll blow up like shit; it's already really blurry and full of artifacting

No.

The league is fine, I encourage everyone to take part if they think it'll be fun. People enjoy the other RGL leagues - I've said this many times lately and mean it. My take on the league is irrelevant because I don't play.

A main selling point is literally that data will be sent to Valve. This is outlined very specifically on the website. And I see people coming out of the woodwork in this thread like "Well hey, it can't hurt."

My stance is very simple - sounds good but don't sell folks on Valve doing something with data if you're totally making that up and haven't spoken to Valve about it first. This is not a major piece of it, this doesn't hold up the league, it's not a crime etc, and sure you can do positive shit without Valve. But if folks are going to give their time and effort to this because they are being led to believe that Valve will get data, and that will somehow do something, I just hope they can find out NOW if it's not true or correct, rather than at season's end.

And sure, many people may not care about that! Maybe nobody cares, maybe everyone's happy to play whether or not anything will happen - I'm sure many will and that's cool. But with "improving competitive" and "the future of competitive" and all these buzzwords being thrown around.. I mean "Valve gets data and improves our game" is the ultimate pipe dream, and has been for 10 years, right? People will buy into this really fucking easily and quickly - it's close to our hearts. I think it's fair for players to want to know whether it's BS or not.

And absolutely, if nobody cares at all, then I'll shut up. But I think this is a fair thing to want details on. If the season is finished and we send over.. whatever data, I guess the survey details or whatever, and Valve says like "Uh we don't have enough people, we can't do anything with this even if we want to" well.. that will be shitty for everyone involved and probably the scene as a whole.

Since you didn't answer it here, let me ask - Have you spoken to Valve (recently)? Do you know that they have any use for information like this? Have you asked how realistic it is to expect them to do anything with it? Do you know what plans they may have, or where their head is at? I believe it's naive to say you'll give them all this information and that it will lead to "something positive" if you don't actually know that for sure. I would want something more than "maybe" at this point. I think it's reasonable for others to also want to know this. Saying "sure they're interested, they gave us matchmaking right?" doesn't cut it.

eXtineGetawhaleEDIT: Here's an idea. Maybe we just ASK Valve if they have any use for data, and try to get some realistic expectations of what they want, and what they may be capable of doing with it....
WTF do you think they told us in 2015, 2014, and 2013? Why do we need to ask a notoriously uncommunicative company a question we already know the answer to?

Good point. I guess I was more just giving him an opening to share any discussion he may have had, or what the latest is. Rather than just saying "We know what the answer is".

But this had a positive effect overall, because you are very clearly one of those people who WOULD know better than anyone. Which goes towards responding to lucrative's point of (and sorry I have to paraphrase and simplify it) "How do we know if we don't ask/try" or "People who don't know anything should stop commenting" etc
