b0nes_NAThe only way I think we can grow the scene is more weekend tournaments, Most players don't have the time to put into a full season worth of scrims and matches and would probably be more open to a short 2 day tournament.
I feel like replying somewhat seriously and in-depth, so I shall.
I think this all comes down to the question of: What are we trying to accomplish as a community?
Do we want more stuff for us to play in? Do we want it to be a viable career for the best players? Do we want the community to be larger?
I don't think any of these have a clear 'Yes' answer.
To address the first: I personally don't enjoy playing tournaments that often, it's really intense, and it can be hours and hours of playing. They're fun every once in a while, but I wouldn't say that myself or many that I know would want to play weeklies.
In contrast, I actually really enjoy the concept of a season because it allows for someone, like myself, who works a normal 9-5 to play in the evening and do something rewarding with a really flexible level of commitment, from a match-only team to scrimming every night.
Do we want it to be a viable career path? To be frank, it's really no skin off my back whether anyone makes money playing the game I like. Maybe this is a selfish attitude, but life isn't really all about money, and if the top guys want to figure out a way to make money playing, that's more on them than on me/anyone in the community, I think.
Do we want the community to grow? Again, I don't really care that much. I think this community is pretty good as is, the size of the community doesn't really change the core of what I enjoy about the game. I wouldn't mind if the community grew or shrunk.
You may disagree with my opinions, but I think it seems like if we want to accomplish something as a community, that thing should be overwhelmingly popular, like RGL changes for example.
I think if you want to run tournaments, you should do it, because you want to.
