#6 ETF2L S25 Open Coverage in TF2 General Discussion
cirloInteresting project!
What made you choose to focus on Open, rather then Mid/High?

Because I personally play in Open so I have a lot of interest in the the other teams that play in the league and also cause there isn't really anyone else who covers the tier.
Also I feel like newer people to the scene coming from casual would very much like to see coverage of the tier they themselves play in.

GazNo idea if you're aiming for professionality, but if you do you should watch your vocabulary and expressions. Stuff like "absolutely rolled", "[...] who used 8 players throughout the season so I won't be listing a roster for them" and using terms like offclassing should be avoided at all costs because they sound really bad and personally I don't enjoy reading a coverage in a way like that, especially since you vary between writing in a fitting linguistic tone and colloquial (hope thats the right term) expressions. You pretty much write stuff down in a fitting manner and in the next moment you formulate words comparable to someone speaking with a friend.

Yeah I'm still not quite sure what if I want to write it more professionally or not, I kinda just wrote it in a way that felt natural. I'll probably figure out the style I want to write in over the course of the season as I write more stuff.

Though I'm also not quite sure if 100% professional is the way people want to see these written, people might like the sometimes informal vocabulary cause it feels more casual, which I guess might be fitting since it's Open.

#1 ETF2L S25 Open Coverage in TF2 General Discussion

Hey, I'm gonna try to write some weekly coverage for this ETF2L Open season on the lowminustf2 blog.
This is gonna be my first time trying to do esports writing, so I'd appreciate all the constructive criticism you can give me.

Since the season hasn't started yet I started off the coverage with a little recap of last season for people that didn't follow it.

#508 unpopular tf2 opinions in TF2 General Discussion
DollyESEA is NA Only, yep esea is a replacement for etf2l

yeah thats why they hold EU leagues for other games, so they'd probably be interested in bringing TF2 EU leagues back if the community showed interest.

#506 unpopular tf2 opinions in TF2 General Discussion
owlIts not that UGC is bad. Its that its not necessary. I know its unrealistic, but if every iron and steel 6s team decided to just play in open, within 2 seasons esea would be back up to 4 divisions and IM would actually be a real division .

ESEA is basically the only shot tf2 has at this point to have a truly competitive and professional league, but this community never quite bought into it in the same way cs players did. It's not really possible (or worth ) changing at this point but hopefully the argument that everyone makes against UGC is a bit easier to understand .

I think UGC would more necessary if/when the EU community drop etf2l finally, so that there's only the free UGC and the pay-to-compete ESEA
