Obviously I cannot speak for all prem/invite/top level players when I say this, but for me personally, I have been put off from sending my frag clips to the Top 10 plays of the month for the reason that: I've submitted clips multiple times in the past, only for them to be not included, while other clips, which I see as no where near the level of what I send in (In terms of the actual play, not context of the game or who the clip is against) do get included, and sometimes even at #2 or #1.
Don't get me wrong, I love the series, its one of the main things I watched when I was getting into comp years and years ago (Though it would be a lot more watchable imo if you increased the viewmodel fov). But I am extremely grateful for all the work you and eXtv have put in and kept it going over the years.
MRfunnyalieni remember a b4nny iseries 4k was #2 behind a tf2center pyro airblasting people into the pit on steel
If I'm honest, I'm not sure a lot of prem/div1/invite players actually pay attention to the series for this kind of reason. Which sucks, but I don't blame them. I completely understand that as wan said its geared towards pubbers maybe more than the active competitive scene but I also agree fully with this:
Wandumlike i get that youre trying to reach a wider audience but in the process youre also just misrepresenting the entire scene and comming off as not being genuine to the people i assume youre trying to promote
and I think its reasons like these that are why maybe you have to go off Beater sending clips from top players now and not the players themselves. We all record demos as we are obliged to by league rules, we're just disincentivized because, in the past our double airshot followed by a 3k in a prem semi-final that we submitted, gets placed behind a sniper getting a 5 kill streak with the machina where 4 of them were bodyshots in a lobby, or worse, not included at all. (Or something along those lines.)
