From my point of view most players who did a lot for the community in the past didn't get bored but frustrated at the same time.

Frustrated, because we do understand that Steam is the future, but we didn't succeed with our efforts to get the adaptions of this future platform that are needed to make it suitable for tournament play.

Steam isn't complete crap at all, it has many good features.
There's not too much missing to make it suitable - I'm sure it could be done with justifiable effort on DOW side.
But the things that are missing (or would need to be changed) are crucial for tournament play (at least in my opinion which is based on 10 years experience of playing and organizing TTR tournaments).

We couldn't convey the message to DOW that the tournament players are an important base for the game (and maybe that's indeed not the case any more with tons of newcomers who buy map after map for casual play) and a chance to promote TTR as more than "yet another game" (which is sad, because I see it very close to the recognized Mind Sports).

Conclusion:
I understand that no more effort is put into the web version, as the future shall be Steam. Therefore I see no chance to keep the community alive on web.
I don't believe (any more) that the Steam version will be adapted to the needs for a flourishing competitive community. Therefore I see no chance to organize successful tournaments on Steam in the (near?) future.
It may not be a genuine Catch 22 as a solution would be available: Just implement what was described by the tournament players - but unless this is done we are caught ...
