#3 twitch killing the in site stream viewer? in TF2 General Discussion

That's not happening to me when I use the sidebar. That message was happening for people using types of adblockers about a month or so ago.

#19 Fav Youtuber/Youtube channel? in TF2 General Discussion

Have quite a couple, but just wanted to mention Louis Rossman who repairs Apple products and goes out of his way to do it and fighting for Right To Repair. Also like his sense of humor time to time.

#62 The TF2 Aimbot Crisis in Videos

Speaking of pubs, do y'all want to play a pub tonight that's listed in the Servers tab?

Whoever's bored and just wants to play around could meet in like 30 minutes from this post (around 6:30PM Eastern) on this server:

connect 103.214.111.90:27915

Looks like no custom downloads and server has in title "Nocrit Nospread NoCrash" in it's name. So it seems pretty good.

#8 Half-Life 2 Developers React to 50 Minute Speedrun in Videos

Once starting this video, it was hard for me to stop watching. Their commentary throughout was quite nice to hear and some of the bits were interesting. It may be futile, but it'd be cool to still see the same for Episode 1 and 2 to see what more they may add in terms of some of the parts they developed/worked for extensively.

#49 ETF2L Ban Policy in TF2 General Discussion
JackyLegsa caught VAC banned cheater gets banned for 1 year and then gets welcome back like nothing happened, this person says offensive things and gets banned for 5 years?

A caught VAC banned cheater should really be either a permaban or at least 10 years (which is practically a lifetime ban).

If the kid responds back and actually apologizes, they should have a reduced sentence. If they don't, then it's actually fine as that would mean they don't care enough to apologize and don't care to play competitive TF2 through ETF2L which works out.

#80 Tagg: Why I "Quit" TF2 in Videos

With all the recent happenings/mentions in the past few years in regards of exposure of certain people in the community, the unfortunate experience that some players were victim to, and the overall "toxicity" (for this post, summing it up as the use of racist, sexist, homophobic slurs, and being a rude jerk) that has been around the community throughout all these years (and some of RGL bans of them), the need to pay attention to these issues and take action only becomes more critical for the community in my opinion.

Tagg is a great guy. I remember some of us playing Xonotic with him and he was having an enjoyable time as we all were, he's a genuinely cool dude from my perspective and it's truly sad he had to go through what he went through in his video (aside from the TF2 weapon balancing). For as long as I could remember and as well as all the other old TF2ers, toxicity has always been around for years and will continue in TF2 or other games. Back then people were "tolerant" of it while not being toxic themselves and there are still many today that are like that. That doesn't mean toxicity is okay though in the end. Yes, it does happen in games like LoL, CSGO, or any other game, but those games also have large playerbases/communities and if they lost players because of toxicity, they'll still always have many players. For the TF2 competitive community specifically, we're not as "huge" as those other games and in my opinion every player counts. It's also especially easy to lose new players that are just trying out comp TF2 if they encounter "toxic" players in their first few games and they start to quit because of it. Same goes for long time players that eventually get tired of it. And if anything, this video from Tagg may unfortunately discourage some players from trying or considering competitive TF2.

As mentioned before and despite all that has been happening in the community, the question still stands, will anything get done about this? Or just like all the other videos/threads/happenings from what the community now knows, will it just be ignored until the next thread? As for what can possibly be done about this, I'm sure people could think of all sorts of ways to work towards making the community a less negative experience. While many are opposed to RGL, they have already taken the initiative a bit in an attempt to try to show that this negative behavior isn't okay. Forum moderators could start cracking down more on certain posts/people. Players could start being less of a jerk and the nice/tolerant ones can start to speak up against those that are being toxic.

Also, a shoutout to all of the nice players/contributors who happen to be reading this that have stayed all this time, put up with the bullshit, and maintaining a more positive experience for the game and other/newer players. While competitive TF2 is a great attraction in terms of ruleset, it's people like you that really make it far more enjoyable and worth staying, and this community would be utterly worse without you guys. Thank you for being awesome.

#32 Unveiling NACL in TF2 General Discussion
Tery_Y'all remember ESEA and CEVO? Two leagues ran at the same time. One shit the bed so everyone went back to the other. The community will decide which league will be the premier one, we've been here before (multiple times even).

Indeed. The same also went for lobby/pug services in the past. In the end, the community will/usually decide which will end up sticking around, usually the distribution could be like 70/30 or 80/20 and it winds up forcing the community to follow where the crowd is.

Also as mentioned in the OP:

The league will start with a few weeks break after the end of ESEA Season 31 playoffs, which are currently scheduled to conclude July 22.

I don't quite see why people continue to say it's "too late". Sure RGL announced itself prior already, but NACL still has some time to further establish itself and release more info.

If anything, both this and RGL could survive and work well in certain ways. It seems that RGL has the money so those like b4nny and etc. will be playing in that league. But will the league allow the players to play in the way that they prefer in terms of whitelists, maps, match formats, and etc. ? RGL could easily be the money league that doesn't quite have a format that people agree with while NACL could be the league that can provide a way to play that the community might prefer and perhaps be more "fun".

Anything could happen. It's still a bit early to make calls, but things will eventually/hopefully sort itself out in the next few months and we'll all see where it goes. It's unfair to put everything into RGL just because they announced first and ignore/neglect other leagues that are trying and in the end just trying to help and haven't been given a chance.

#26 Unveiling NACL in TF2 General Discussion

Let the best league win.

Hopefully, the staff, service, and satisfaction between each of the leagues will be compared and be a ultimate decider on which will succeed ESEA. It'll be interesting to see which players pick what league and for what reason.
