TwilitlordWhat the fuck is your problem? You sound like you'd rather have had them drop TF2 altogether than have invite without LAN. This is a totally legit standpoint.
Looking at the ridiculous annoucement by Ipkane (dont make me regret this lol) he poses as the saviour of TF2 when all he did was fuck you over and have you say thanks to him.
I mean i understand you guys this is the only viable competition you know for TF2 in NA but if in europe we had to rely on shit like ESL to get the job done game would be dead for a long time already.
In France, we even have a LAN circuit with 2 to 3 regular events. Without a paid league. Because some LANs still want us to fill up slots at their events.
I mean don't tell me in the states there aren't more things like gaming festivals or LAN events similar to GXL. The organisers of said events want to be filled up as much as possible. Sometimes that's all they ask. Attendance.
Stop praising ESEA and start helping fragile, idk
Did he really fuck us over?
Think like a businessman for a second. He could have looked at the numbers and just removed the tf2 division just like a candy store removes a less popular (but unique) brand of chocolate. He's in it to make a profit - and he had enough financial incentive to make the cut altogether.
I'm not a fan of the guy, but it does take a little bit of grace to back away from the knife in the business world. This kind of stuff is 95% of the time NOT about feelings but about finances.
If you remove ESEA, what does the NA tf2 scene turn into? I could see a lot of the "established" people here hanging it up and going elsewhere (or just stopping video games altogether).
