What if DBOR gets so popular that it gets into the next video like this? That would be pretty cool right?
WoW is the only mmo I know that's played as an esport in front of a large crowd
Yeah I found out about it a couple months ago
The video was pretty cool. Makes me wanna be the best at League of Legends but I can barely play because my internet company sucks hard and ping becomes unstable for most of the day shooting to 900 ms or more at certain times and between 350 and 600 at good times. I can only play very late in the night (about 12-1 am) untill very early in the morning (10 am or so).
Project M is a Smash bros mod made by the community, why not DBOR?
Broadcasting some Budokais on the official DBOR twitch channel would be pretty cool. Maybe give away some prizes to the winners or something and bam, DBOR Esports lol
I'd rather not use twitch, maybe hitbox.tvThere would need to be alot more changed for it to become a fair sport.There would have to be a whole different channel dedicated to the esports.Not entirely that easy either.
Yeah it would be extra work on top of what you guys already have so I wouldn't worry about it. COD WoW and Smash bros are just a few games I know who host their own Championships. Other 3rd parties host their own tourneys too of course. Except that one time Nintendo took down Evo's stream because they had a Smash tourney lol. You'd probably get a lot more viewers on twitch but yeah I like hitbox, it's that new new.
I think you mean Starcraft II? Because seriously, they do treat that as n e-sport over in South Korea.Speaking of it, though, I've noticed a few games are starting to drawn in e-sport crowds. Namely, the reaction to the 2014 Pokemon World Championships was a lot like an e-sport the way it was broadcast, and people are still making a fuss about it right now. Nintendo seems to be attempting to push the same angle with Smash Bros., judging by the tournament they had at E3 this year. It wouldn't surprise me if we could see this types of competitions be treated as a type of alternative sport by the media in a few decades.
Starcraft 2 isn't an mmo
Well, shows what I know.
as shown by the video, esports is already a huge thing, it's just that, there isn't many games in it at the moment.Ones that are huge at the moment.DOTA2, LOL, Smashbros brawl/melee/X, Starcraft (whatever patch).Starcraft is an e-sport here aswell, i have a mate that shoutcasts for starcraft tournaments here in australia.and Korea is a decent distance from australia The media already follows these events, it's not like covered by fox sports and channels like that, but they have their own media coverage.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_sports#Media_coverage
Indeed i did, completely missed that one, i knew that i was missing something, but couldn't figure what, thanks.
