Yea I mean the only reason i bring up the esport thing is that its mentioned in this very article. I would have a hard time seeing it become one at this point but again thats just me. It comes from my perspective of how this mode of pvp is doing in general which seems unhealthy. If you go to the mists you could afk there for 2 hours come back and find that maybe one or two sentences have even been typed. No one talks to each other in the lobbys it feels beyond dead. I have no idea who even does the tournaments they have because no one is even asking for players so it must all be pre-formed groups.
Ive played since the beginning but I've only ever seen anyone looking for members for a pvp dedicated guild one or two times over the course of several months. This mode needs to have perks that intice people to start playing it, not make people think twice about whether its worth it or not. I just feel that if you start charging people it's going to put the nail in the coffin and the thousand or so people that even play it will just grow smaller and smaller. I mean I came on at 1am est one day and granted that's a little late i know but still around 11 pst and there were literally three servers in use on the hot join server list. 22 players playing total. That seems a bit unhealthy, how does this help?
