#552 ESEA's possible demise? in TF2 General Discussion
Mr_OwlWhat exactly has CEVO done in terms of listening to its community that ESEA has not?

In the end I think we're trading in real competition, a LAN, and a company with a time-tested infrastructure for 10 bucks a player per season and some healing stats attached to some names that players like and I just don't understand why. The "ESEA is a shitty company" argument doesn't really hold water because the last time we saw CEVO they were a pretty shitty company too and at best they're unproven. Are healing stats or celebrity endorsements worth that much to you guys?

I'm just trying to understand why people who actually care about getting better (and I realize that that does not include every TF2 player) would cripple their ability to do so.
Mr_OwlHonestly, I'm glad ESEA is dead. The company is corrupt through and through and even if we're going into uncharted territory with this whole CEVO thing, it has to be better than what we've had so far. So far all I've seen is that community icons like Lange and Nahanni are willing to step in and dedicate their time and money to the cause, and CEVO simply has a better product than ESEA, LAN or not. If teams like Mix^ can't see that, then it's their loss and they're giving up this great game for a corrupt piece-of-cr*p company with a shady owner and ineffective admins.

So far, the CEVO matches have been pretty much flawless, and with all the improvements they've been making it's sure to get even better. I look forward to this new era of TF2 and I know the rest of you guys are too! :)
Mr_OwlI've been a CEVO supporter from the beginning. I know first hand how evil ESEA is.

#545 ESEA's possible demise? in TF2 General Discussion
Ma3laaThe competition wouldn't be great no matter how many top teams are in cevo because no one cares about winning cevo. I see why cevo could be appealing for open and new players, but it offers nothing for the top competition of tf2, simple as that.

This is an unfortunate truth. While there are some great teams in CEVO-M, there is a high probability that most of them will not take any of it seriously and we will see off-classing and troll strats like huntsman snipers to mid or 24/7 heavy. While it's true that the invite level players in cevo-m probably don't see much to strive for, I personally would hope that they (as seasoned veterans of the game) would at least have enough respect and sportsmanship to play their matches with dignity. Even if they themselves do not care, they may be facing other teams who do.

When it comes down to it, this is an "e-sport". If you're a high tier team or player, I would hope that you would conduct yourselves as such. Looking forward to our match vs. 180 tonight, gl to all other teams starting their week 1 matches.

#380 ESEA's possible demise? in TF2 General Discussion
TurinhookySirPatIf the only teams that sign up for ESEA are the ones now, would ESEA just drop main and move everyone down a division? Or would that not solve anything?Pretty sure Killing has said that there needs to be 30 new teams for ESEA to not drop TF2.just 30 open teams, not 30 new open teams

your previous post made it sound as if having the current amount of teams + move downs to fulfill "30 teams in open" would suffice. i was clarifying that they need 30 NEW teams total, whether they have 15 or 0 right now, in the end they need 30 new teams.

Turinjust 30 open teams, not 30 new open teams

no, it's 30 new open teams. moving teams down from IM would only lose them money. they need 30 newly created rosters readied up

-Sal: i dont get it
-Sal: lol
-Sal: them*
♔Quindali: it's not budsquad
♔Quindali: it's not about one team
♔Quindali: the problem was no new open teams joined esea
♔Quindali: the upper 3 divs of esea look fantastic this season
♔Quindali: stable IM and main
♔Quindali: but with all the shit people talk about esea
♔Quindali: and how poorly they conducted themselves last season

♔Quindali: shitty client
♔Quindali: shitty servers
♔Quindali: it's a wonder we scared off new teams
♔Quindali: people who had never even played esea before chose cevo
♔Quindali: it's not as if it were inviters revolting
♔Quindali: and switching leagues
-Sal: meh well
♔Quindali: the only reason this is happening is because there's no support from the bottom, from open teams who have never played a pay to play league in their life
♔Quindali: and with all the crap about esea, like bitcoins too, i'm not surprised they chose cevo
-Sal: thats just iut

GeknaiirFor cevo matches after week 2, will you guys pair people up based on their record or will you keep randomizing until mid-season and then start pairing people up based on their record?

For scheduling in OPEN it is based off record match by match. For MAIN the entire regular season schedule has already been posted-- round robin.

#62 CEVO Moveup Info in TF2 General Discussion

SCHEDULES HAVE BEEN RELEASED. Open will be scheduled match by match based on record. Main is scheduled in a round robin format so that each team plays the other for a total of 15 regular season matches.

Just to reiterate, please note the following updates and timeline-

  • DEFAULT TIME to play Match 1 will be MONDAY, February 24.
  • DEADLINE time to play Match 1 will be THURSDAY, March 6.
  • DEFAULT and DEADLINE TIME to play Match 2 will be WEDNESDAY, February 26.

This means the automatically scheduled time for Match 1 is at 8pm CST on Monday, February 24 but teams will have until the NEXT WEEK to play the match and report score if both teams come can reach an official agreement on the match communication thread. This is a one time extension of the deadline day for Match 1 since schedules are being released later than anticipated. Match 2 is scheduled normally.

BLoodSireUnless of course maybe we want to use CEVO as a sandbox for unlocks . . .

like using CEVO S4 as a sandbox for CEVO S5? sounds like a plan

i thought that too but i guess since flash sharks/blockback mountain lost half their team from last season and is still LF pocket and scout. plus block might be pocketing now apparently so that's a thing

edit: also blockback mountain is the greatest name ever why didn't you come up with this last season

JDMYoshiokaI don't see anything in my CEVO messages.

edit: you should've gotten a cevo private message from Lange but I had psyche listed as leader for your team as far as steam messaging, fixing this now, sorry!
