Default What happened to all the competitive footage of Guild Wars 1? I remember years back i

I googled and they removed all the footage from MLG website as if it never happened. I searched on youtube where they had videos of it as well (not as extensive) and now they're back behind thousands of GW2 videos. All I can find is this: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...+wars+match+-2 which has some of the videos I watched. What about the team vs team videos and the ones with commentary? What happened to those?
Edit: Found this, but it wasn't what I was looking for. It's 2011 video not 2008-2009. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBB0...3CEE441E89C3D3

I had no idea that MLG ever ran GW. I know that GW was an ESL game for a while, but I don't know about any uploads they might have done for their matches.

If you just want GvG recordings to watch in general, T Drone has recent (post-GW2) matches, while Apok has the Guru commentary recordings and Rato has other matches he covered for the departed Memorial. All of this stuff is after the time period you specified, though.

The majority of the GvG footage I recall was primarily created at the game's PvP heyday, perhaps this list could be of some interest to you and someone else will be willing to extend it a bit more down there...

Yeah, I didn't know about ESL at all when GW1 had professional PVP. They played GW Battlegrounds and also hosted WoW (which I believe is archived rather than removed completely like GW1). MLG ran it and then removed all traces of it in public website. The larger players you posted was never hosted by MLG being that it's less squad based than 5v5 or 6v6. I don't remember if it was 5v5 or 6v6, but it was one of those formats.

Yeah, I was looking for early footage during its heyday. These clans were paid by MLG. Thanks anyways.

Are you sure you're thinking of GW? I wasn't around for the earliest years (beta and ~1.5 years after release), but I'm certain that there was no MLG event of the sort you describe at any point after I started GvGing in late 2006, and I feel like if it had happened earlier, I'd have heard some mention of it before now.

You must be thinking of the GWWC videos. The commentary on those came from the likes of Izzy and Co. You aren't talking about the factions GWWC that was taped and pretty well documented are you?
