A new idea of mine for more American CS coverage...

We need some more American news on this site!

There is no doubt that the SK Gaming site is the "go-to" site when wanting to find out what's going on in the e-sports scene, but frankly, there really isn't much about the North American CS scene besides teams having a couple roster changes here and there.

I think we can all agree that the North American and European counterstrike scenes are very different in nature. The American scene is with no doubt smaller and with not as many "professional" or "competitive" teams as the European scene. I can only reminisce of the good ol' days where American teams such as 3D or coL would be battling it out in all international tournaments for a world class title. These days, there are only a handful of American teams that we can even consider to have the potential to be "world-class" teams.

Sometimes I wonder why North American teams have always had such a struggle competiting at a high level. Is it because the North American scene is so volatile and that Americans don't have strong competitors to train against? One year we're one of the strongest competitors in the scene and the next year we're no where to be seen at the top of the list. Or is it because of the shitty internet North American players possess? As seen in screen shots of our matches, teams that are playing on opposite sides of the country have to deal with 60-80ping on a daily basis...

Anyway, what I was thinking of was interviewing some North American players for you guys to get some insight of how American esports really is. What I need help with is who to interview and what questions to ask!

Gunna post a new poll on my profile so you guys can vote on who you guys want me to interview. Remember this is just for fun and hopefully you guys enjoy my idea!

*EDIT* -- I guess I'll leave the poll until the end of the month so everyone can vote! Winner will be determined on the first of next month. Thanks for everyones interest!!!!
