#34 I Miss The News : ( in TF2 General Discussion
loafeI'm curious if the halt of articles is due to a lack of writers, a lack of leadership, or both

A mixture. The writing (and production) side of tftv was left in a weird state where the people leading those teams moved on, and ultimately no one stepped up to fill those roles. Eventually individual contributors lost interest, and when the team is left with 2/3 active writers for the entire website across all regions, it doesn't exactly motivate you.

We made efforts multiple times to pick up new writers, nothing really ever came of it. From memory I think 3/4 people joined as junior writers to help the EU side of things a couple years back. After pings/reminders across multiple seasons that there was work to be done, I believe 2 articles were written.

If there's no new blood, expect very little news content for the future. Like JMax said, we're happy to bring new people onboard and help them with the work; if you're interested you can reach out to either of us through the tftv discord.

#11 eSports scene in Esports

As a whole esports is downsizing in the Western markets. Dota, CS, and Valorant esports scenes are all roughly plateauing in the Western markets at the moment, which is why Valorant/Counter-Strike are trying to establish themselves in the Chinese market in 2024. Latin America (mainly Brazil) and Asia still have growing markets, so this is where a lot of focus will be moved to for esports.

Esports is mainly MOBA games and mobile gaming MOBAs at the moment, apart from CS/Valorant the top FPS games are Fortnite and Apex Legends, which has a sizable Japanese market.

edit: on the topic of Western vs Asian markets, League of Legends set an esports world record with 6.4M Peak Viewers in 2023, while also trying to buy teams out of their North American franchised league

#180 Esperanto should be the language of EU competitive in The Dumpster
AimIsADickIn Esperanto, functional illiteracy is unheard of, because of the easiness of our language.

Yeah true, you don't see any large-scale studies saying people are functionally illiterate in gabagool either

#159 Esperanto should be the language of EU competitive in The Dumpster
AimIsADicklol yeah. English is also the same language that has a 18% illiteracy rate in native speakers.[1][2]

functional illiteracy rate*, 18% isn't even especially high for this. It's about the same, if not a bit higher, in many non-English speaking European countries. Literacy is mainly a social/education issue, doesn't matter what language you speak.
