Thanks for putting this together, Botmode! I think it's great that you're giving everyone in the community a chance to voice their opinions (even if they're not from NA), as ultimately these kinds of decisions have rippling effects worldwide.
I also want to give props to Sigafoo as well. Derek, even though you've caught a lot of flak:
1) You've shown that you're willing to make adjustments based on community feedback, and
2) You're putting in a ton of hours into crafting an NA TF2 league which is super valuable for the future of the scene.
I actually have high hopes for RGL's first traditional 6v6 season. Overall the discussion seems to be pretty constructive thus far, and we're seeing meaningful changes. As a suggestion, it might be worth having some kind of v2 thread as we get closer to the start of the season, since it's getting difficult to parse out the change log and feedback.
Keep it up guys :)
