I'm no longer hyped for NA-based tourneys. It's getting really old to see the same americans/asians keep on winning them.
$10 says you aren't anywhere near a controlling position of the L4D3 scene in any continent when it happens.

Thing is he does what he wants, cause his able to and we are letting him do that. He abuses hes place and power in this community and people like me get banned for no reason. Only thing visor wants is more and more control so he can do what ever he wants.

I agree, for most of 2014 it was the same top 3-4 teams that were top competitors and by the time CCT3 came around I was honestly 'bleh' as well about it.  This tournament though (RBT2) has a much wider range of teams that could compete for the title (8-9 imo) and even a couple EU teams look like they can take it.  I understand the drag about it being NA-based though but hopefully after this we see a big EU-based International tournament start up, it'd be interesting to see a surge of EU teams come around again and see how the NA/AS teams do over there.

I don't understand why is it the euros that always have to make international tournaments? What if we had admins like fig newtons that "don't see any way" of making international cups? It's all good to a certain point, but if the trend doesn't change soon, I will personally make sure that no one in the european scene of L4D3 decides to go with the international format.

In my opinion, EQ cups worked out pretty well in terms of balancing international competition. The worst possible scenario is Europe/Russia vs Australia. But I think that the endurance away game with 350ms for one team and green pings for the other still counts. The "who sucked less with huge pings" approach is better than nothing. That, or one game on LA or something like that.

How exactly do you plan to control an entire community and prevent them from playing other people in the world?

I don't think trying to blackmail the tourney host into changing the rules to your whims is a good idea. Fig can run the tournament as he wishes. Want an international tourney so badly? Host one.

First, don't doubt something you know nothing about.

Second, refrain from telling me what to do, I don't need your advices.

Third, where the hell did you see me "blackmail the tourney host into changing the rules"? I am not participating in these events and I would have no personal interest in that. Next time, think first, type second.

Please, inform me. Is Valve (somehow) giving you complete control over the L4D3 userbase in all of Europe?

"if the trend doesn't change soon, I will personally make sure that no one in the european scene of L4D3 decides to go with the international format."

You're (apparently) holding hostage (in some magical way) the ability of everyone in Europe from hosting tournaments with the international format in the future if current L4D2 tournament hosts don't change rules to your liking.

I'm curious how you plan on going about doing this.

If I start digesting all your pseudo-intellectual and extremely witty comments, I will contribute to the offtop and flame. Not this time.

Move along and stick to your opinion.

Well, except you already did flame.

I'm sure glad we have you adminning this website. Sure reflects good on this community. L4D is sure to grow from here.

Now I understand better why people like Rails and Jacob want to just give up on this game.

Ah yes, the great European scene of L4D2, which contributed to the last international tournament (CCT3) so much via its flagrant disrespect of administration by its participating members that it made Estoopi literally quit the tournament.

I don't understand why is it the euros that always have to make international tournaments? What if we had admins like fig newtons that "don't see any way" of making international cups? It's all good to a certain point, but if the trend doesn't change soon, I will personally make sure that no one in the european scene of L4D3 decides to go with the international format.


I don't understand why it's the North American based admins who did the work hosting 5 of the 7 tournaments open to international participation in 2014 (not including NF's King of the Huntards) who then have to sit here and listen to the dripping idiocy of a statement saying "I will personally make sure that no one in the European scene of L4D3 decides to go with the international format."

Two things:

1) $10 says you aren't anywhere near a controlling position of the L4D3 scene in any continent when it happens.

2) If you think it's so great, how about you go and host an international tournament yourself, admin it, fund it, and then be told by a participant from another continent the admins are corrupt for simply being American?

First, don't doubt something you know nothing about.


Then you'd do best to stop antagonizing the people who have actually hosted the international tournaments, because your responses here clearly show you don't know anything about what it actually takes to admin them. You won't until you do it yourself.

I look forward to this post being taken down so that you can continue running a corrupt system for a game that has less teams then I can count with one hand.

Hey, all your egos are clashing. It's obnoxious. You're all just fat nerds that play this game like the rest of us. I personally love being a fat nerd. Neither of you is smarter than the other. Just play the game and stop acting like faggots. If you don't want to play in someones tournament because you don't agree with the rules, don't fucking play. Simple. However, don't act like admining a tournament is rocket science that only saints of the community do. Yes it's cool when people do it, and I personally greatly appreciate it, but please stop acting like anyone owes you anything for it. You should be doing it because you enjoy it. If people give you shit because they think you're a bad admin. Tell them to suck a huge cock and jog the fuck on. If you were really being an awful admin people would just leave the tournament.

Here we go. Clash of the egos, admins showing their true colors, NF getting owned but buying doritos with the donation for promod development.

Rails one of the nicest guys in this community, showing how truly a viper he is, like every other admin that was very nice.

People always ready to backstab each other. It is such a common rule in this community..



Don't mess with Visor. He will probably ddos everyone in the l4d 3 community that doesn't abide by his rules. Nothing strange to the guy :D

@Dyl

You speak the truth man. People should do it because they enjoy and this applies to everything, even promod development but nooo lets ask for donations and give hats and shit .

Its seems that i was right all along.

OhYeah is always right.

Ya, the flaming section was shelved because it was tarnishing our image. Not like we have any trouble doing this ourselves.
