I will admit there was some pretty annoying moments at i61 which was cheesing me off. But it's not like TF2 in its whole lifespan of iSeries has gone without a hitch. Referring to a point about what how I had audibly yelled at production about needing some communication on what is going on whilst live, I did do the exact same thing the year before with davidthewin.
One of the problems I think the community always runs in to is a really dumb standard of expectation, like we always seem to want to put on a very ambitious show, which we are all right to wish for but we seem to do it as a detriment to people involved in some ways, so if something doesn't go to plan or if there's a technical issue it seems to create a scenario where everyone will feel a massive pile of shit just being dumped on them. For the past few iseries now it feels like we have created something bigger than what we really needed.
I can't really chime in on anything else as I wasn't involved, and because I can't even manage to reply to slack notification asking me when I can cast so I'm not really one to talk about organisation.
But I feel like this paints a scenario that makes ETF look like it's going to end up with a mass suicide on stream when it's really not. At the end of the day we are all just amateurs wanting what's best, I imagine a lot of mistakes have been made that could have been avoided and I hope that they have been learned from.
