    if i can count, 63 teams which is the lowest player count that i could quickly find recorded evidence of (without bothering to go through the archives) oof

  2. BlastFM said:


    The new merc rule could explain low team counts above mid, but mid and open too look somewhat empty

    What even is d1 anymore

  4. STiNGHAN: inv said:

    I think 3 seasons of hl and 6s is too much for people, no time to get proper roster. That’s why 6s takes priority and players prefer to find sub spot. Start taking this serious

    div1 and prem completely died

  6. Citrus: ВТ. said:

    hope it’s a variance, not a trend

    the most stacked season!!!

  8. Swanny: crumbs - pizza said:

    Best Div1 team at the bottom of the table what is this!!!

  9. Hoxtilicious: Funhards said:

    Honestly I’m starting to think ETF2L should drop HL and focus on 6s

  10. Cronk: ︻芫═一☺ - Lucrosa said:

    What do you mean by focus? What can etf2l gain by dropping highlander?

  11. Bloodis: (Legend) - sirkkels - BauS said:

    Technically ETF2L could drop HL as well at any point if no admin is interested anymore in hosting the seasons for it, there’s interest for 7v7 as well but not in the ETF2L admin team hence why there are no European competitions even made outside of RGL.

    The smallest gain ETF2L could get from dropping HL is to focus more on 6v6 so that the currently timed HL seasons can be replaced by several 6v6 cups instead to avoid too much off-season time for people who want to only invest in one gamemode especially for a league that already hosts more than a single one of them at that. But I don’t suppose that a gain like that is worth it, especially since there are admins that still want to make these seasons happen.

    But then again I’m not sure if the HL team numbers would increase elsewhere either, only time will tell.

    bloodis quit admin post but still does more than any admin…

  14. 4hp: v4 said:

    tbf I think the low numbers came from a few unlucky coincidences. several decent project teams failed at last minute, couple established teams took a break or folded, plus people still playing the 6s season didn’t have that much time to make/join rosters.

    probably not a bad idea to drop # of seasons a year to 2 tho.

    etf2l should drop 6s so everyone has to focus on hl…

  16. Dave_the_Irate: v4 said:

    We need to drop HL to fully realise Team Fortress 2 as an esport.

  17. Swanny: crumbs - pizza said:

    Tf2, 9 classes in the game, 9 players on the team. It’s basic maths. HL>6s

    When will etf2l finally announce its first official garfield kart tournament

  19. Adje: want it? - POYO said:

    how much i need to paypal u to make etf2l 4v4??

  20. supra: █▀█ █▄█▀█▀ said:

    i think next time we should just give some more space for teams to establish their teams because i saw a lot of teams disbanding because of not having whole roster for playing officials without taking merc for every game
    unfortunately nobody expected that little amount of teams this season and that’s a result of 6s/hl seasons overlapping in the time for long term
    that overlap made 6s gamers prioritize their gamemode over that better gamemode (i mean those who take part in the playoffs) and here’s another reason why do we have less teams here

    Here old players leave and new ones do not come. You do not advertise your league. Pay for advertising your league to famous tf2 youtubers . New users increase is provided. Stop crying, do something.
