  • Does anyone feel like the thrill of returning to TW is kinda fading?

    Aware of the psychological discourse of perhaps I feel that way because the squad I am a part of and have created isn't necessarily in top tier bracket competition and it's not that.

    Perhaps I just burnt it out from being online from September to a few weeks ago to such a degree, but like the nostalgic romance of playing TW again is kinda quickly fading. Maybe it's just, cause things are opening up again and feels kinda of strange to sit at home when you can do regular people things again.

    Happens every twl. It'll bounce back for twdt if the zone isn't completely dead by then.

      If TWL is such a zone killer for the average player why does it continue to run? It seems like there was a lot more intrigue with TWDT. The current league kinda feels like the NBA, lets just fast forward to the Lakers/Nets finals...
      Isn't there another way to stroke the egos of the elite guys stacking squads? Something that doesnt waste a quarter of the year for the majority of the players, most of whom are casually playing anyway and are at risk of leaving a game with a dwindling player base anyway

        The problem with TWL remains that it is during the daytime on Sundays, which is by far the worst time of any I can think of for when most people want to log in and play competitive games these days. The entire timing of it is terrible. I log in at night to play with friends and relax, not during the daytime when everyone has shit to do or things on their mind. The entire scheduling of TWL remaining the same for the past 20 years is beyond stupid. Just because a thing is a 'tradition' at this point doesn't mean it's the right way to go forever.

        Also, the entire zone essentially shutting down for TWL is ridiculous as well. I'd rather watch paint dry than spend my time spectating Basing and Jav matches, yet the zone pretends everyone must watch or do nothing else, because again, it's 'tradition' and some random scrubs need an ego boost by having more people in an arena doing nothing but trolling someone like Beam going negative than playing. Nobody gives a fuck about these games these days as it is. I don't even like watching WB matches, because watching this game is boring AF. It was not made to be an E-Sport. Stop pretending. You guys have streams and youtube videos with 5 total viewers. You could get more viewers by playing Candy Crush than TW. This game is too old and too low of a population, and TWL is not what it was 20 years ago. I don't care how many spreadsheets nerds like Ogron try to make to show it is as good as 2005 or something, because it isn't true and nobody with common sense believes that.

        At the end of the day, this game is about playing with friends at a time people enjoy playing together, and I have not met anyone that actually enjoys logging in during the daytime on Sundays for 3+ hours. It becomes less of a fun thing to do and far more like unpaid work to prop of some fragile egos on stacked squads. Roster limits has proven to not work and did not force these guys to branch out from their stacking ways either, so there is literally nothing new going on in this game. There is nothing exciting to see, because nobody does anything different than they did 10 years ago. Most players aren't even better or worse than they were previously either, just the same old players doing the same old things for eternity. I ask again, what is the point?

        TWDT is seemingly the only fresh idea this game ever had. TWL probably shouldn't even exist anymore at this rate.

            Too many ideas, too few volunteers to make it actually happen. A TW tale as old as time.

                  TWL periodically is perfectly fine. The only change I would’ve done is a much shorter season. 9 weeks regular season with 1 week break followed by 3 weeks of playoffs is just an incredibly long league no matter if TWL or TWDT.

                    Ye TWL is only fun for the stacked and that is why TWL should die. Even on a stack smashing teams is not fun at all, but in this format if you dont stack you get smashed. This league is also extremely annoying to put a team together for and is just not worth the effort. The elite bullshit needs to stop in TWL and we should be promoting leagues that allow balanced games and allow individuals to just sign up and play (solo q style). The zone pop is too small for this style of league and it shows.

                    For some reason a lot of the population in this zone say they dont like playing with noobs... what i hear is whining that they cant win without a stack.

                      Every season everyone agrees the season is too long.Yet we do the same thing everytime. Rather than make it play each other once, top 4 semis then finals. Which could be done in a month it ends up being 3.
                      I've only played 2 weeks and it already feels like a slog, dunno how the peeps who played all season feel.

                        I mean yea, makes sense. I had to be up at 9 am on Sunday to be online for 3 hours for TWL and I had to ask myself why the fuck am I doing this?

                        Like already Pacific time is early enough to be devoted to this game which really doesn't enrich my life to any degree, it's just for shits; but then for 3 hours, for 3-4 months, in a already imbalanced league in a game that's been around for 20 years with a population of 200 people.

                        Doesn't really seem like the intention is to retain population but to diminish it.

                          TWL is retarded and it has needed to die for a decade at least.


                          Facts, unfortunately.


                          Oh, and whoever pointed out the thing about Sunday daytime being the worst for scheduling - absolutely.

                            I am all for competition but TWL isn't the league for that. Not even sure why we should give medals for this league-least not solely to winners (who 100% stacked to get there and win twl). It lacks structure (despite its gazzilion rules) and allows any player to join ranks with any player to form squads. Elites stack and we sit here for 12-14 weeks watching a handful of tryhards stroke themselves. Disgusting. And as it's been said, the schedule is shit.

                              Here's how I look at it: TWL is not for me. TWL is for the ~40 tip-top players who never retired and have been logging on near-daily for over 20 years. Do I get to participate? Sure. But the main purpose of the league is for two stacked teams to fight each other for a title. The 10 weeks of regular season are basically just window dressing.

                              Once you accept this reality the angst around stacking and rosters and what not goes away. It's a much healthier way to play.
