I don't recall Faceit and Starladder's production cutting audio/video often
I'm fine with PGL but they should've looked for another location, doing it in the same place that Blast does their tournaments is just a cheap move. It doesn't offer anything new to people.
PGL is literally underrated
these pgl fans will make 999+ threads per day about shit audio, hud and 30-60 minute tech issues.
Think you forgot how dogshit the Audio was in stockholm
Is that you mr pgl audio guy?
esl has worse audio than pgl
faceit production at their worst > pgl at their best
Antwerp was not great because of PGL is the thing though, fix the audio maybe lel
yeah stockholm was quite good imo
those audio issues that people always talk about were only in the first few matches
i attended the stockholm major, it was pretty bad in the arena. They ran out of food and drinks at the venue both days and you could not hear the casters at all. But it was right at the end of covid lockdowns so i can understand if they had short time to plan it.
I worked at PGL on audio desk.
Didn't hear any criticisms of my work.
Stockholm deserved some "hate" but Antwerp really wasn't bad. People just had a negative bias towards PGL after Stockholm so they overreacted to every small thing that went wrong.
ESL got away with so much shit over the years because they were generally liked, only once Blast came in people started giving ESL the same treatment that PGL would receive later on.
Now with Blast scaling up and hosting tournaments in other games, their production will likely suffer a bit as well. But people will forgive them because they're well liked and nobody will give them the same scrutiny that other TOs receive
Aye as long as we get more juicy holos i’m fine with it <3
Antwerp was good, but stockholm was dogshit, i just think giving PGL the first major of cs2 is going to ruin it
