Yeah so great that esl is trying to establish a monopoly pumping shitload of money . Dude just imagine , in 2014-15 events with prize pools in the order of 40k to 100k used to get atleast 150k+ viewers and all big teams , now a days nobody gives a shit about 100k dh lan , hell they are even skipping 300k starladder lans . Esl has completely destroyed other event organizers , there were so many organizers that went into Oblivion . And remaining are probably allocating major part of their budget to prizepool rather than into production to attract decent teams.
We should cut them some slack.
