New York Subliners centerpiece, ZooMaa got to talking about the CDL on The Codcast and laid a few things out as to why we shouldn’t be judging the CDL on it’s first year.
“I’m excited for franchising, I can’t wait for everything going on,” he said, but re-stated how fans should keep their expectations tempered. “Remember, though, it’s brand new. We are literally the first people to be doing this shit.”
“I feel like the first year is like… we don’t know what’s going to happen,”
“There could be a lot of slip-ups, and we don’t know what’s going to happen, so I don’t think we can judge the whole competition off the first year.”
“There are definitely some weird spawns still going on, but we’re trying to learn them… it’s getting to the point now where I know all the spawns, a lot of people say that spawns are shit, and they are, but you can still predict spawns now,
“I’m still spawning in front of people, I literally didn’t say anything to my team when it happened, I just said ‘yeah… right side.’ It isn’t that bad though, you can learn all the spawns. Random shit happens a lot though.”ZooMa

The beauty and ugliness of the internet comes from everyone being able to voice their opinion, regardless of how asinine that opinion is. And I know damn well when the CDL starts on January 24th, as soon as the first match starts people are gonna be hitting the internet talking about how shit it is. You can’t please everyone, and that’s fine. It’s human nature to point out the bad before the good.
I completely agree with ZooMa here. This is the first of it’s kind and nothing is perfect the first grow around. It’s not like these teams are just throwing shit at the wall and seeing if it sticks. This is a huge investment made on everyone’s end and it’s something that everyone wants to have longevity. And the first way to get better, is to fuck up. If that means have the CDL be shit the first year so it can be unreal the following? That’s a no brainer. So take the good and the bad in the CDL but realize at the end of the day your opinion doesn’t matter as much as you think it does. These players will keep playing, and earning their paychecks regardless of what you think of the league.
