Holy shit people liked RBGs for any other reason besides how much money they made with carries?

WoW is not a fun game to watch, from the watcher's perspective (half of the time, you have no idea what the fuck is going on, just some random health bar dropping out of blue) and due to imbalance and shitty game mechanics, the game is not fun to watch.

LoL on the other hand is awesome to watch, granted, last night's NA LCS was pretty boring to watch, simply because it's TSM and they're playing shitty (if you watched Fnatic in EU, those games are fun as fuck).

Blizzard is trying hard to stay relevant in the current scene, dishing out games like Hearthstone, Stracraft and Overwatch, mainly e-sports oriented games. They fucked their best franchise in e-sport, namely Starcraft, and they have severely fucked over what could have been a good PvP game, namely WoW. Plus, Warcraft 3 was plagued with same shit over and over again.

No infrastructure offered to players, no support other than the regime they have mindlessly set while sitting on the throne for a couple of years, means it is a recipe for bullshit. Ghostcrawler is the lead designer for League of Legends now, so apparently, everything he touches is gold. While poor Holinka has to read tweets from brainless morons and reply "yes, you have to press W to move forward".

I'm actually surprised Blizzard got that many viewers.

Yeah, I'm aware of this stuff. I watch the NA LCS for the hype and the LCK for the actual good league. Though I don't play league much anymore, it's really boring after you play HoTS.

It's profound how dumb blizzard is when it comes to eSports, maybe they don't know that it'll help them make more money? I hear they love money. Maybe Bajheera can tell them for us.

What's crazy is how much it has declined since then. (Not really crazy, considering how blizzard has handled things.)

The NA LCS Playoffs today were at 400k or so viewers when I was watching, while I thought it was absolutely bonkers that the NA Qualifiers for Blizzcon was at 20k viewers.

What's the point of trying to be at the top of the ladder in RBGs?

I just don't get why people would be DDoSing each other if there are no rewards besides a title that I've had since the one time I did RBGs in S10.
