    Cmon! Shooters and RTS games can be part of e-sport not  rpg's. WOW is not in e-sport and he have 10Xtime better pvp from gw2 (well they do not need e-sport, you get more money on wow tournaments). No chance sorry, gw2 pvp is joke. PS 2 yes but  games like gw for sure not

    I hope this isn't their solution for getting back all the players who have left.  GW1 was set up for competitive PVP from the start, GW2 is more about leveling and raid content.  Changing the design focus to PVP has NGE written all over it.

    UHH - GW1 was an esport when it came out. They even had one million dollar tournaments. So, yes, GW2 could be an esport. I think that it will be when GvG is brought out and that will be where the esport will live.

     

    Currently, the way PvP stands, no.

    My main problem with GW2 sPvP is the game mode.  I'm just not a huge fan of the "all conquest all the time" philosophy they have with sPvP.

    I LOVE the combat in GW2, I just wish the game modes would focus more on killing, and less on coordination, bunkering, and map control.  Like in LoL or other MOBA's, the game is primarily about killing.  If someone kills enough and gets fed, their team will usually win.

    Yes, the coordination is there, but it's not as cumbersome as it is in GW2.  You can see everything your other team-mates can see all the time, so you don't need that constant verbal feed of what is going on to react correctly.  And once you understand how to play your "role" (solo mid, etc.) you can generally do pretty well without worrying about where everything is at all times, you just focus on the killing and skilled play.

    So while I love PvP in GW2, I tend to do all of it in WvW where I can just focus on kills.  I would love if they made a sPvP game mode that focuses on KILLS and not on controlling points and dominating the map.

    Right now, you can literally have double the kills as the other team and still lose just because they were better at running around the map and taking points.  I know that some people love that game mode, but it's just not for me.  And I think a lot of other players feel the same.

    Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

    I'm playing planetside 2 and I hope it DOESN'T become an esport. I like it because it does one thing very well mass scale persistent pvp. Adding arena or whatever would dilute the product.

    Nah PS2 will never have an esport, it's not designed for that kind of thing. Battlefield 3 is hugely pupular yet EA/DICE doesn't seem the least interested in esport of any kind.


    WoW pvp/arena... hahaha, didn't Blizzard admit arena was a mistake?

    As it stands? No, I don't think so.

    Oh please yes!!!  Yes! YES!!!  GW2 Go E-sport!!!

    People!!! If you're good players, keep it it up! Play on!! You may get famous!

     

    (hopefully folks with the E-sport mentallity will stay with this game then...)

     

    My dream is that people with e-sport dreams will stay the heck out of my 3 online games and one of those are WoW, the two others I won't mention!    Go Go Go PLAY GW2 and leave the rest of us alone!!!  (we're having fun without you)

    Ive found esport communities not bad, hwoever there must be extensive buffers in place (like lol jas implemented) to keep the mouthier people at bay. 

    They need a observer function, one that is simple to use.

    They need to increase map size. 

    They need a way to turn down spell graphics, can be with observer mode.

    they need to dump hot join completely and use a lol / starcraft system of joining. 

    You need to be able to easy access the pvp, like literaly in the log on screen have a button that says "Pvp"

    I thought I'd dig up this old post. So many naysayers, so many promises from Arenanet. Will GW2 become an esport?

    I just found out what is coming this summer for GW2.

    All I can say is:

    E-SPORTS HERE WE COME

    they decided its big in esports so that must be the truth then.

     

    lmao..the things they try to save this mmo.

  • ShakyMoShakyMo BradfordPosts: 7,207Member
    There's no way gw2 will be a bigger esport than lol, dota 2 or starcraft 2,.

    Hmm the original OP was about GW2 being the biggest e-sport of 2013. That is a nice dream though. So naysayers are still right.

    As far as necro is concerned...

    I don't think the format is that good for esports.

    They could do something more interesting.

    And GW1 GvG isn't the solution either.

    Yea man GW2 e-sports ! So many people excited! So many people interested! 

     

    Those 203 views on twitch man! Biggest E-Sports game 2013! Pff let's see League of Legends try and bit that with their 140k views on average or wow with their 1000 views on average!

     

    Yea no, GW2 will never become a big esports for  5 simple reasons. 

     

    1) It's boring to watch, one thing that has been stated time and time again the clustersmash of particle effects makes the game uninteresting and impossible to follow.  

    2) Inaccessible

    3) The game has a high skill cap but a low skill ceiling. Various top players have mentioned this, and many left because of this and many more will. 

    4)Lack of diversity in builds, playstyle and pvp types. All of the classes expect Ele, Eng and Ranger can play up to one role in competitive play, the terribly build trait system locks professions into set roles.

    5)Spvp, is on deaths door with the majority of people PVEing and having no interest in spvp why because it's boring.

    Hmm?

    Skill cap and skill ceiling are the same thing.

    Game has a low skill floor, build stagnation and format give the impression it has a lower skill ceiling than it actually has.

    A few things:

    - Biggest *new* esport of 2013

    - GW2 is a great game guys, just play it and stop crying

    Also

    If you knew what was coming this summer, you would start finding good tourney partners right away before the rush begins.

    I saw that they are doing a tourney soon with MMORPG...is there something else that I am missing?

    This game had its chance and it is done. It will never be an e-sport. Not this year. Not next year. There is no interest.

    Well played. 

    Biggest 'new' means nothing when there is hardly anything new in esport to compete with.
