    Don't understand why anyone watches esports when you can play the game yourself.  What is the point?

    I can say as a gamer that suffers from severe anxiety, competative games such as League of Legends, Starcraft II and WoW's Arena all cause me panic attacks, but I absolutely enjoy the games. Watching e-Sports casts allow me to enjoy the game without any adverse effects.

    Most GW2 gamers don't even know who The Last Pride [Evil] is. You'd have to go back to the early days of GW when they were the top GvG team and won a bucket load of money and prizes when ANet actually handed out prizes at tournaments. It's nice to see them finally get a sponsor.

    I'm looking forward to watching the e-sports side of the game develop and the fact Anet have already said they are going to fully support it, now companies like this "want in" it's all a good sign.

    I have to agree. I can only watch TV when it's something engaging, like on Nat Geo or History Channel. Though, nowadays, they're just airing bullshit that involves hillbillies catching reptiles or fish. Can't stand the commercials either. And watching e-sports is just as boring as watching basketball or football.

    Why does anyone watch proffession sports anyone can play them?  the answer is the pros are better and it makes it more exciting.

    You can watch the matches directly from the game in future (if it will function like it did in GW).
