lanskyit has nothing to do with them being hurt about shit on a forum
i talked to lpkane and he actually likes the tf2 people he gets to meet at lan. the company wants to have tf2 because they enjoy saying they're not exclusively a csgo league and having TF2 in that corner of the venue doesn't impede them at all since they prefer to have one game being played at a time for the CSGO event anyway.
however, he mentioned that if they had the opportunity to expand csgo to the extent mentioned in the article, they would be forced to drop lan support for TF2. im not 100 on the details why its no longer as simple as putting tf2 in a corner, but it is what it is
This is basically the same conversation I had with him. I was able to talk with lpkane quite a bit as I was helping set up some digital billboards for them right by the venue, hence why you might have seen some pictures of a FROYOTECH billboard at LAN, and the bottom line came down to this:
Lpkane likes TF2. He likes being able to say that ESEA doesn't ONLY have CS:GO but that they also have another game that they support. However, the goal is to move their CSGO LAN's to a different format/venue in the future, although not finalized and wasn't really expanded upon entirely, and if this change takes place there will likely not be room/time to host the TF2 LAN at the same event. If ESEA doesn't host a TF2 LAN he doesn't really feel that it is necessary to run a season for it either.
So basically, if they decide to move the venue/setup to promote the CSGO side of things they will likely drop TF2 from LAN, if they drop TF2 from LAN they will likely not host a season for TF2 either.
