I am rarely in these forums so if this thread has previously been created; I'm sorry for the repost.
TL;DR: Will esport ever happened in wow?
Is there ever going to be a spectator mode? Is this in Blizzards attention? Are they working on the esport side of Wow? Has there ever been any news about this?
I have a vision, my friends, consider this:
No matter which aspect of pvp one would spectate, it would be really fun.
Imagine a fully organized team of 40 players battling in AV or some other grand BG with spectators cheering and watching from above! It would be a grand spectacle, epic would not be the least to describe it! It would be like BF3, but with frostbolts, bladestorms, typhones and fire elementals flying everywhere!
Imagine watching the absolute top tier players do AB against each other, see EU All-Stars vs US All-Stars fight on different fronts for supremacy while the teams has a separate commander which guides their soldiers while we fly noclip mode above the fighting at the same time as some professional caster is shouting at us scrubs what's happening!
Imagine having intense 2v2 or 3v3 battles with a proper and thought out UI and movement(for the spectator, ofc) system, with a minimap and everything focused on simplicity for easier viewing so we really can see all the skillful things which is being done (because on current tournies it is quite hard to actually pick up what's happening)... To have instant action replays on the death scatters and Altertimed nukes!
It would be magnificent especially when having in mind that wow is being more and more balanced (shut up crybaby, it is) wow could actually become a real esport if blizz put some effort into it!
What do you guys think? Could there be a future in this? Is this in blizzards interest? Are they happy with pve content and focusing on SC2 pvp or will there be more esport oriented content coming?
