THIS IS PURELY SPECULATION BUT...it has come to my attention that c9 may be dropping WoW.
As you can see, WoW is no longer apart of their team roster. So far it seems they just are not interest in WoW, and you can't blame them given the state of the game and also tge fact that gorecki left the team for tempostorm.
Some speculation I've derived from this, tell me what you guys think.
1. Cloud 9 sponsoring WoW in the first place was likely a gamble, maybe they just wanted to give it a shot and see how it goes. To any sponsor or player, its pretty obvious that WoW Arena is incredibly imbalanced and cookie cutter atm. For the most part its a game of rock paper scissors, rock comp beats paper comp, etc. Everyone just counter comps to win for the most part. Not a very good format for skill being a factor.
2. Would this mean other sponsors will drop WoW as well? While GCD gets decent viewers, there has never been such an inactive ladder and lack of motivation for players to que.
Let me describe the US ladder to you guys real quick since most of you are EU around here.
There are like 100 actual good, multi r1, tourney level players that que at high rating. These same players also have like 20 alts, alr classes, alts of their main classes, etc. and they all play with other people's alts too. Anywhere from 2300-2600. Aside from that there is probably like 1000 less recognizeable names who are also high rated, usually quing some retarded cookie cutter WoD comp that takes the least amount of brain cells possible and is unpunishable for mistakes as possible, like WW/DK, Turbo, Rogue/Mage, etc. the other 90% of the ladder are people below 2.3k mashing their keyboards aimlessly, maybe 15k players who que inconsistently.
So in other words, most of the time the ladders are really stale, you either que into a team thst counters you and you get farmed, or you que into a team that you counter and you farm.
Countless people have quit, so many good players and big names. If the next 6 months are the sane as now, unfortunately more sponsors will leave and the proped up tourney scene that came out of nowhere might suffer. If legion isnt significantly better, I cant see the scene growing at all.
