2 promises made in March:Phil posted this on reddit.
An interesting read from an outside perspective. However, you should shy away from stating opinion as facts especially when referring to people you don't know; as it calls your journalistic integrity into question. For instance, implying that I don't have a big picture in mind is incredibly ignorant. I understand that as an outsider you and many others continue to receive little to no information about the ongoing things here at S2 for eSports. However, you fail to mention the turnover our company has experienced in other avenues, like changing management of eSports 3 times in the course of 6 months. That is an important topic that needs to be realized.
eSports has and will continue to be important to S2Games as we continue to see rapid growth in HoN, however much stake has been placed on HoN Tour which is why it has been delayed. After I took over the project roughly two months ago many things had to be changed to meet with the standards of quality expected for a professional level circuit. The vision of HoN Tour previously had not been fully realized, which was apparent once I stepped in.
We are finalizing many issues with HoN Tour right now and expect to be ready for launch shortly. I will say that the month of April will be EXTREMELY busy for competitors and spectators alike. Don't lose faith yet, my goal to revitalize (not revive) the eSports scene will be shortly realized.
Expect more, get more.
1. There will be a huge announcement for the NA HON Scene in the next days (that is more than a week ago)
2. Month of April will be extreme busy for comeptitive teams and specstators
but april has already started and there is no sign of any announcement and no sign of a busy april. maybe soon?
OK, let's give S2 another month, then all move to Dota 2. Deal?
Well, the first announcement was the tournament It's Gosu are hosting with cash prizes. Waiting for more!
I suspect the forum change Wedsnesday, Hon Tour, and next Friday's patch are all related.
great that people find it so funny, but i really can't remember that s2 said something like "custommap editor will be implemented this month" and than just did not do it.
what ever, haters gonna hate
Phil said that the HoN tour site would be ready for sign ups within 2 weeks at the start of february. So why would this statement be any different?
And noone ever said anything about a specific date but promising something will happen and never delivering is just as mean
Youre right when youre saying that they deliver IF they give a specific date... (at least i cant really think of anything) the problem is they promise things that cant possibly get done anytime soon
He never said 2012, you know how Phil always builds up expectations a year in advance.
its april the 5th now, we have 4 working days in april now. no sign of a announcement and no sign of a busy april for me as a viewer nor the competitors. since its pax east at the weekend won't have an announcement there because phil will be busy with peaches2410 as his guest at pax. i have low hopes that his announcement for a busy april will come true :/
breaky twitter "Going to Vegas this weekend with some friends, going to enjoy what free time I have left before work gets REALLY busy!"
Can someone post the chatlog of phil saying he was going to make an announcement in the next few days? That was last Wednesday.
Teams have to sign up
Teams have to form
Interest has to be generated.
You can't be like "HAI GUISE BIG TOURNY STARTING TOMORROW AT 16:00CET BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!"
