It's not a good day for the ESL. They continue to have production problems at the Pro League Season 4 Finals taking place in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
It's not just audio and delays anymore. The stream missed an entire round of action during a match.
Twitter is firing off complaints and insults left and right.
What is going on with the audio in esl stream? @ESLCS fix pLzzzz— Gabriel FalleN T. (@FalleNCS) October 26, 2016
The community backlash is not a good sign for ESL.
ESL PRODUCTION TEAM SPOTTED TRYING TO FIX THE STREAM pic.twitter.com/h3fnv9NrAO— 🎃 Skelaton 🎃 (@RNGKela) October 28, 2016
They're becoming regarded as one of the least proficient tournament venues when it comes to streaming and producing CS:GO matches. ESL is poking fun at themselves too.
On top of that, they're getting a bit of flack for having teams play in the locker rooms in close proximity to toilets.
Above all, hopefully, the conditions don't dampen a team's momentum.
Conditions at ESL are far from optimal but fine. With AC on, and the stream fixed it'll be alright.— Nathan Schmitt (@nV_NBK) October 26, 2016
Production aside, spectators and viewers want to watch good CS and these conditions aren't the best to cultivate that.
