And what's better than a 1vs1 league?
There's nothing worse than a 1vs1 league at the moment. If you had played the previous season, you'd have known what im talking about.
I think a lot of people fail to realize the technology of current cheats in 1v1. As vinteek's pointed out, this is not a team game where you can rely on your team-mates. You're on your own and its crucial for the final outcome of the match. Aimbots that look natural to the eye but improve your accuracy tremondously. And if you really want to know what's scary. A trigger bot with the awp, which is the most often used weapon in 1v1. Players literally just hold a button down and whip their awp within radious of the person and they die 98% of the time and hardly looks fishy at all. Due to lack of security, the cheats that are out these days will make any skilled player an even better player. And at the disposal of a few fake accounts these people learn how to cheat "properly" and SVL is unfortunately a great platform for it. Cheaters aren't running around with spin bots and blatantly staring at walls. You would probably never know if you're playing against a cheater because of this. The private cheat providers are really advanced and hard to detect. The only way that this can be stopped is to make an anticheat that operates on at least basic level, and that would be really intruding but it could work. Helloer did create such during the previous SCTFL and so i DO believe that it's possible to have it back for any kind of league. And i don't think it's a long wait from now.Leagues and tournaments aren't meant to be fun
, they're meant to be super competitive. People are eager to win, they play to win, and the minority that "just wants to have fun" usually give up on the whole thing after few matches. And that is why leagues should be created for the players who care because they're the main engine of the league's activity. Casuals are important too but in a 1v1 league they always vanish at some point because most of 1v1s are usually more controlled and refined, which after few matches is not "fun" for the casuals. All kind of events are for those who want to have fun
, leagues should be kept serious and competitive. Not the other way around. Please keep that in mind. If you want to have fun, i'd suggest to organise a smaller cup to begin with and just enjoy the beauty of this game.
Organising another SVL would be very disrespectful towards those who want to put a serious effort. In the end, why do one need to put an effort when cheaters clearly don't? Why would people want to play fair vs people who use aimbot, toggling walls, etc? In 1v1 you'll always lose, unless you're really, really good. Therefore, SVL4 is on hold
