daybraekpeople are coordinated and actually trying
There's nothing stopping people from trying in Valve MM. When it first came out, you could hop in a 6-stack with all your buds who wanted to be death merchant and find a game, no problem. You can't do that anymore because people stopped playing it, and they stopped playing it because it wasn't fun. It wasn't because of a heap of terrible graphical settings being forced, or bad map picks by Valve, or an 8 year reputation as a casual game, or because competitive is hidden behind a paywall in a F2P game, or because it's filled with hackers--though all of those things are contributing factors, other games have dealt with issues like those and still survived. Community 6s has dealt with some of those issues, along with many others, and still survived. The biggest problem is that Valve's version of competitive, unrestricted 6s, just isn't fun for most people.
I'm not trying to say that if you do enjoy it, that you shouldn't. I'm not saying anyone is wrong to put their money or effort in to try to get people to play this version again. I'm not even saying that it's doomed to fail. All I'm saying is
Menachem im sick to death of people calling obvious shit like no restrictions "new"
Because if this fails again, the response from the people who want to play this won't be "oh man, that sucks, but i guess people just don't like this game mode." It'll be "ugh you stupid 6s players are just too stuck up to try anything new." And in a few years, someone will try it again, with the same "no one's ever tried this before" attitude. It drives me nuts.
