Sorry about that! Some site instability
« on: November 19, 2013, 06:24:52 pm »
L4DNation went down for a few hours today due to some needed billing changes not taking effect. We should be back up now with no issues. I figured I'd take this time to make you guys aware of some of my plans for the site:

1. We're going to try to migrate L4DNation over to a different webhost sometime during this month. This is mostly just to try to and reduce costs, and also to try to make sure the loop of ad money --> website payments can be a lot smoother. We actually do get enough ad money to pay for the site's hosting most months--but that's lumping in revenue from casts on my YouTube account as well.

2. I plan on keeping the site open until L4D3--which I'm guessing will come out sometime next year. So you can count on this site sticking around at least until then. If L4D3 turns out to be a thing I'll try to dedicate some more time to this site again :)

I can't thank you for this post. Fix it.

I'm glad that you're keeping the site around until l4d3.

I approve of keeping this forum around until the end of L4D3.

Now here's the real question.

Who will be the owner of the L4D3 Scrim Network?

And also, CEVO is looking to expand, and the TF2 community just had a huge blow-out with ESEA and right now Teamfortress.tv is in an uproar and are tearing eachother apart over what to do (leave ESEA or stay).  ESEA basically mined bit-coins off of client computers a year back and just settled for $350k and there's still 2 more cases in two other states to go through. The law-suit also showed that the 3rd party auditor found that the ESEA client makes a backdoor on your computer that does not come off with the uninstallation of the software (it stays in the ESEA driver).  So that's why they're all pissed.  But they're looking to maybe switch to CEVO and AG|Nahanni is already pushing for CEVO. (Link to law-suit: http://nj.gov/oag/newsreleases13/E-Sports_Complaint_Consent-Judgment.pdf)

BUT BASICALLY, I'm wondering how alive the L4D2 community is at the moment, and if I should see about getting a L4D2 league started up with CEVO as well.
