What if DBOR gets so popular that it gets into the next video like this? That would be pretty cool right?

I don't think i could call any mmorpg an esport.
However, mmorpgs still have some degree of skill involved so it's possible.


Budokai Tournaments! Dojo Wars! Dragon Scramble!
Plenty of competitve events, however they aren't very long matches/battles but, since it's alot of people
and considering that we're aiming to please, almost every country and nationality, it's possible that we would be able pit some of best guilds against each other.

But no doubt that would already happen each week!

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).

It's always nice to know that your thoughts are actually what people do, as i was thinking how this could apply to DBOR, as i was reading up on their wikipedia article, it was about 80-90% following my train of thought.

Unless i've got the wrong one, but it's still an interesting read, and proves i'm a smart cookie.  8)

I'd say i'm fairly good at league, not the best or have the guts nor time to grind out ranked matches each day, so i just rest at GOLD V

I'd like to be pretty good at dota though, i've tried it before and got frustrated at how steep the learning curve was.

the custom game modes are fun, especially the one where you can turn on like hacks or what ever ;)

Because they're completely different game genres?
But i get what you're getting at that we're both fan created projects (more so project m, then dbor)

but DBOR would be alot more involved.

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.tv

There 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.

also, hitbox  hasn't got all the problems twitch has got lately.
I remember that event happening, alot of people were upset about it.

It's alot of work ontop of what we're already working on, but it's not an impossible idea, but we'd need alot of participants for it to be anywhere near viable.

I don't think it would matter if we chose twitch or hitbox or whatever, the views would come if they heard about it.

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.

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), Counterstrike (and other FPS games)

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.
