DreamLeague season 2 has been plagued by scheduling conflicts and a big fight regarding the leagues standin policies.
To help solve the issues, James ”2GD” Harding announced on air that he and Bruno Carlucci will be taking project manager roles for the remainder of the season.
– We’ve been working day and night to solve the scheduling issues and with their help we can put more focus on this and hopefully raise the quality of the product further, says DreamHacks Tomas Lyckedal.
After the conflicts regarding administration of DreamLeague season 2, James ”2GD” Harding announced on air that he will be stepping down as caster and instead taking on a project manager role along with Bruno Carlucci.
– A lot of people have been talking about DreamLeague and that there’s been a little bit of mishaps here and there. From my opinion behind the stage there’s a very small team and one person felt he took on the right amount of work but he took on too much work and this DreamLeague has been suffering from lack of preparation.
To remedy this, he and Bruno will finish the season as ”additional project managers” during the remaining phases. Niklas ”Wagamama” Högström will take over 2GD:s casting duties and one of the central points Harding wants to see to is how the players will be treated during the rest of the season.
”Will help to improve DreamLeague”
DreamHacks Tomas Lyckedal stresses that this has nothing to do with the recent change in the DreamHack organisation, but a way to secure the quality of the product going forward.
– We will use James and Bruno to help develop and improve DreamLeague season two. We’ve worked with the for a long time but now we’re deepening the collaboration. It’s extra important because phase 2 and 3 are being played live in the studio and since Bruno and James are both in Stockholm it’s natural to get help from them during these stages, he says.
Are these changes being made because of the standin debate and the argument about standins, or was it discussed even before that?
– We’ve been working day and night to solve the scheduling issues and with their help we can put more focus on this and hopefully raise the quality of the product further.
”Would be good to have 48 hour days”
During the stream, Harding says he felt this season has suffered from lack of preparation. Is this something DreamHack recognizes?
– During 2014, we’ve grown immensely with more events, and DreamLeague is one of the large flagships. We always wish to have more time for preparations, and when it comes to DreamLeague it would be good to have 48 hour days instead of just 24.
