ESR is not the official forum (would be funny though). Still, the main problem is these things should be advertised on the game itself (quakelive.com) in front of the screen (not on the right) + embed streams + community news + global chat, like in LoL.

Doesn't take much job really. It's only adding a community news bar on top of the server browser (a one liner) and a new section on the game with an embed stream (copy-pasting from twitch.tv), considering someone else already does the weekly tournament lists with stream info, sign ups and all.
I find amazing that QL manages to get 2.5.k viewers on a thursday on a regular online cup without advertising outside of a community page.

Lets put a concrete example. Strenx has been streaming for about 2 hours, but isn't advertised anywhere on the game whereas in LoL they advertise individual players streams.
Cooller is playing right now on the daily 125fps cup, nada.
Then there's faceit thursday. Nope, nothing.
And then nations cup tdm (do people even know this is like the 16th version of quake nations cup?)
