In defense of ESL, ESL is not the reason why things changed the way they did. ESL is also unhappy with this. In fact, part of the reason why it took very long for them to finalize things and release official info was because both ESL NA and WG NA were fighting against Minsk about the changes. Yoott and ESL NA have tried everything in their power to stop these changes; unfortunately, they couldn't override them.

 

Do you work for either company? or could you site the info that you are claiming

This was all info released to the Silver League captains chat yesterday afternoon, when the news first broke to us.

So, I am going to try to make some things constructive here.

 

First of all, this right here has killed whatever "League" was, this is no longer a league anymore. Due to the fact any team can form, sign up, and play against any other team. That to me is just wrong. What was SO BAD about the way the leagues worked previously to demand such a DRASTIC shift in how our "leagues" play out? This sort of system was done before with the whole Open Cup idea, and people really didn't like it. That is what this has now turned into. This is now just a horrible set of tournaments. The only good thing, is the fact courtesy of Yoott and I assume Ruu and his staff, WE in North America get accounts to use. How long they will be around for is anybodies guess at this point. If WG RU can veto everything NA screams for, they can surely put the hammer down and take the accounts away from us too.

 

Secondly, with having zero prizes? Where is the incentive to put in the amount of time Silver League teams and Bronze League teams have to put in to actually be competitive? Okay, so you claim the prize to be entrance into Gold League, but IMO that doesn't justify the amount of time people spend practicing. In previous seasons, having the gold prize was plenty of enough to justify giving it your all and trying to do the best that you can do. Without that, as Whiskey has point out, second place gives you nothing. You could work extremely hard, maybe have ONE small mistake in your match overall, and your done. You get nothing but a "Thanks for playing, you lose." So there is no reason to actually participate in this.

 

Finally, this part won't be constructive at all, but WG RU can go jump off a damn cliff!!!! Seriously, this server has been the server that gives them their most revenue but they don't care about us at all. We don't even matter to them because we don't have 1 million people playing their game basically every day. So in return, I could care less if they all fell off a cliff.

I am unsure if this game is worth the amount of time I have been putting into it. Extremely unhappy.

I'm going to give this the first month, with hopes that improvements will be arranged in time for September.

I feel like _Jdawgg gave a good overall criticism and opinion from us lower league players, and I can only hope that the current design of league keeps the game fun for me, as I can not enjoy this game in any other game mode and this one is fading away.

we could make it a poll of what we think WG is doing

Option 1: stabbing themselves in the foot over and over

Option 2: buying excessive amounts of beer

Option 3: banging heads against the wall

Option 4: mistranslating everything players say by wearing glasses that are blacked out. (you know. the goggles the pyro wears in tf2)

So in essence, you killed my interest toward WGL . No reason to join the silver league, seeing how one teams will advance into the gold league and the rest of 20 teams gets "Thank you for playing" email. Then there is no prizes or incentives to play the fantasy league as well. There you have it, no reason to watch or participate in the leagues.

This is a brilliant idea, give the players no incentive to work as hard as their gold league counterparts.  The bonus is a chance to get wrecked by those teams who are compensated for their time so they put more into it.   Lets give you no incentive to be competitive once you get to gold league , so you wont be there long.

Gold league so meh. Lets get one thing straight here. We are what kept you and your ilk in a job. What happens next season when the prizes drop to $100k? You will be the ones complaining. Congratz on the "old boys club" you just built. It is about to become a club that no one could give a crapabout.

 

A re-read of the original post may mean that Fulcrus disagree's with the change as well

So true it hurts, for both the players and the future of WGLNA

Red I am not certain, but I am pretty sure the gold league players had nothing to do with this decision.  Please focus your ire in the appropriate direction.
