The hardest part of competitive tf2 to me is having a life. I've been trying to get into it for about a year now, but I just don't have the time to dedicate multiple evenings per week to tf2, courtesy of uni, gf and an active group of friends that already think I'm a gaming addict every now and then. Let alone enough time to practice my dm enough to actually hit someone. Tf2center is the furthest I've got so far.
So I'll have to stick to watching streams, vods and youtube and I just want to say: I love them!
Thank you Lange for your amazing production work, your amazing streams (probably the American stream I've watched most) and for your incredibly contagious enthusiasm! And while I'm at it, thanks to everyone creating this amazing viewer experience for fans like me: Admirable for being the greatest potato ever to grace this earth with their presence. Sideshow for being hilariously crazy. GentlemanJon (and indirectly Zoob) for the only statistics I've ever enjoyed (can you be my new statistics professor?). And all the people I can't even think of right now for their amazing contributions.
I don't see this community dieing soon, as long as we have gorgeous gamers like Admirable, Sideshow, Jon, Zoob, etc. I can only hope someone can fill in the enormous gap you leave behind Lange, you were the gorgeousest of gamers!
