edit: I don't mean because 'everyone knows'. I mean that without quotes it isn't much above gossip.
The reason the sources are anonymous is because I don't want to put them in compromising situations. This is standard practice in journalism.
Yeah but it's standard practice to not write the story until there's a story to write, with quotes. You can use "a source close to the team" if necessary, it's better than nothing.
You have to be impressed that a scene is reckoned to have so much potential it's worth creating junk content. I checked etf2l recently and they were without a front page news writer for over a month. :/
This is an intricately structured tournament. These two didn't qualify for season 1 so they have to come through the qualifiers for season 2, and one will fail here. Meanwhile teams that did qualify last season (how long are seasons?) but didn't finish in the bottom four are through automatically, which includes Flash Lux and Conbox T6, who might be really good but I've seen very little of them.
