funhaver1998edit: the aim of this btw should be in order to rekindle what was fun about watching TF2. the viewer count fell rapidly from 1.5k-2k viewers per normal season prem game to like 100
I don't know which seasons this was, but those numbers have only been hit for ESEA and ETF2L playoff games.
and the fact that i have no idea who is the top euro team is a testament to that.
Maybe you just weren't watching, explains the decline in viewers and the not knowing
the production and hype has fallen tremendously within the past 3-4 years
excuse me what?
about the hype in the previous quote: come write match-up articles for TFTV for any league/game mode that gets events posted so people are more inclined to tune in to streams.
To add something actually constructive:
it is not like the TF2 Tournament organizers at Insomnia or Copenhagen Games haven't been in contact with teams well before the event to get Americans, Australians and Asians to fly over, but if there is no saving up from players, sponsors backing teams or timely organized fundraisers paired with stellar perks => no one is going 2k out of pocket to play some jetlagged TF2 with a team that only formed just for the event, because it seems impossible to get stable teams to set up merch and fly in to bootcamp and try to crush the international competition.
