KuferlI don't think it should be compared to DeutschLAN really. Correct me if I'm wrong, but DeutschLAN was always seen as a "casual" lan, people just enjoying all the stuff that came with it.
This seems to be the first try for a more "competitive" HL lan, how it will turn out is gonna depend on all the details to it, which we hopefully get soon.
This is true, and also a part of my point. The main problem with trying to focus on a competetive side of HL now is that the scene hasn't been able to field more than one solid roster for the last 18 months, and that one pulled in 3 americans. There is no proper competetive side to it anymore. Because of this you will have a terrible stream for people to watch and much fewer signups.
Stinson_OutWhy cant it be the other way round?.
That's just how it is, how it always has been and how it always will be. No point challenging it. Streep sums it up pretty well although there are many, many other reasons. It just complicates everything for no benefit and drives many people away from actually wanting to go.
When this is all said and done, Let's see what happens when more details pop up.
