This was a total downer. Lange is giving up. For those who do not know who he is, Lange is one of the biggest pushers for TF2. He is one of the makers for Tip of the Hats and one of the major producers for TFTV as well as one of the oldest players in the community. I was totally bummed about this.....but then I read a thread based on this video. http://www.ugcleague.com/forum/show...-the-state-of-competitive-TF2-quot-Discussion This brought up different solutions not just for TF2 Comp, but the game in general. It's weird how even at its lowest this community still is working to make the game accessible. With the release of the latest update that was, sadly, just a video(a very well made one but not much impact on the game), many are dissatisfied with Valve.....again. Competitive is still there with UGC still offering 3 leagues with numerous divisions in TF2 as well as the EVL battle royal which garnered over 386 signups with a split that was nearly equal between competitive players and new players. The game is still viable and still has a community that breaks their backs on keeping this game alive. I don't know what the point of this post is. I just wanted to share something that hit me pretty hard but was softened by people in the TF2 community showing they are still there to make this game work.
