After my personal experiences with ESEA-O, I can safely say that I'm done playing TF2 seriously, whether it be CompTF2 or in Casual mode. The game is just frustrating to handle, and now I only play it for just community servers. My team was for the most part "winless." I write this in quotation marks as we had forfeit wins due to dead teams. I was part of a Newbie Team Drive and our first coach just disappeared so we were left on our own, and it ended up poorly, I felt burnt out beyond recognition, and it was a terrible experience. Midway through the season we got a new coach and it worked out I guess, we won some rounds but that was it. After that I moved on to other games and that was all she wrote.
I dunno why I wasted 3100+ hours on this game.
