Less than 200 people watching the game on Twitch, SWTOR and Tera consistently has higher numbers.

About 200 people on GW2 sPvP servers during Primetime across all their servers.

This dream will never become reality.

Nice necro, btw.

This post is going to be slightly bias and maybe even a tad ignorant. So if im wrong on any of my points please politely let me know.

I took one or two days recently to get into this spvp thing and it seemed like a fail. I tried to give it a chance but it seems like it lacks this certain addictive property that games like league of legends and call of duty has.  Hard to put my finger on it, but in both of the other games i mentioned there are rare occasions when u can feel like a total bad a$$. i dont get that in GW2. It gets boring after 15-30mins. 

Plus i dont like the matchmaking system, im not sure if i dont understand it very well but i dont like that people can drop out and join at any time interfering with the flow of game and i dont know if someone has dropped and left my team at a disavantage. Plus seems to be a slight imbalance with the thief job. No matter what job im playing, mes, ele, rng, war im always getting owned by thiefs. and its the only job that is a threat to me. Everybody needs to be on common ground as far as threat is concerned.

In gw1 i could join a pug group in any pvp and still have fun, not so much with gw2. and there isnt any progression that a casual pvper like me is interested in. at least in my opinion anyways.

Plus im on the most crowded server, JQ and i cant find anyone to get a good group for spvp any more. im in a couple of the largest guilds on the server and nobody ever wants to spvp. 

I love gw2 and i love pvp but this is one area id like to see getting some more love.

I can see a lot of people here don't really know much about esports.... Let me add some clarity to your ignorance.

1.  WoW was an esport starting in early TBC, it was picked up by MLG, ESL/IEM, and WSVG.  It also had a short stint in CGS. 

It remained an esport for YEARS with viewer counts decimating every other games online viewer counts.  (Only eventually dwarfed by LoL after the big streaming boom)

2.  Arenanet hosted 100k tournament, not 1million dollar tournament.  For their gw1 stuff.  You can not argue about blizzard hosting their own tournaments and funding them, when anet to this date has done it as well, at a much less frequent rate, with smaller prize pools. 

3.  LoL is an absolutely humongous esport right now, it is riding a bubble that probably won't pop for another year or two. 

4.  SC2 is past it's prime as an esport, viewer counts have actually dwindled and sc2 was actually never a gigantic hit in korea. 

5.  WoW pvp right now is easy access to all, anyone can get the best pvp gear regardless of how proficient they are at the game. 

 

GW2 will not be the big esport of 2013, even if ESL picks it up, that doesn't mean it has it made.  WoW lasted many years in multiple leagues, if GW2 can do the same, with relatively similar viewer counts... then we can talk about gw2 being a legitimate esport.  But I already know if GW2 gets casted the viewer counts won't be very high, and look forward to the excuses people will make at that point. 

 

GW2, if it does become an esport, will have a small but loyal following.  Everyone wants to pretend their game is the best in the world, but the bottom line is, if a game doesn't have a huge competitive scene, the players can not get to a very high skill level.  You need tons of people pushing the limits and giving you constant high-grade practice. 

 

It's still baffling to me how distorted people see gw2 relative to the esport landscape...  It literally has zero chance of becoming even 1/10th as popular as the biggest esport (LoL).

As of right now on Twitch there are 37 games with more viewers than GW2. Recent blockbuster hits such as Super Mario 64, WarZ, Hey, you Pickachu, and Magic the Gathering all have more viewers than GW2. There is just zero interest in this game as an e-sport. Nobody wants to watch it. It's a good game, but an e-sport, or even a popular game to stream it is not.

ANy other mmo has sold over 3 million copies in the last 5 years apart from WoW?

ontopic: The big e-sport this year isnt gona be lol or sc2 and even less gw2, its going to be(and currently is) dota 2.  The international right now has the biggest pool of winnings in e-sport history with over 2m dollars.

never said anything about pvp, just how sucesfull the game was, sicne the original quote said no one played the game.

Also no, none of them even sold over 2m copies so you are wrong.

So units sold globally equates to being successful in the west? I'm not saying you're wrong, but I don't exactly follow the logic.

"the two million mark, surpassing all previous MMOs for box sales at launch. Even before the official launch of the game, BioWare had to add new servers because of the number of people in early access. The day before the official launch, some queue times were over two hours, and at that time, there were 140 servers. Life was insane at BioWare to say the least."

 

swtor sold 2 million copies before launch.

I agree, but copies sold since release does not equate to current playerbase. Meh, I don't feel like splitting hairs about it, so I'm happy to leave it at that.

I can always point out ques at WvW and overflows in half the servers but what would that do? it would be taken as anecdotal experience. We can only go by the numbers we are told.

GW2 is set for huge e-sport success.

They are very clear that they are not rushing it, but the announced balance changes, the pacing of changes, the way they are approaching their PVP game is fantastic.

I also LOVED the fact that this guy says clearly that some noobs just need to L2P. That kind of frankness only comes from someone who plays the game extensively himself, a developer who is also a competitive player = awesome.

No bullcrap, no marketing spin, just a skilled PVP developer with opinions and ideas who is open about discussing with the players.

You can tell this guy really cares about balance and competitive gaming above all, and that's exactly what you want.

Let's face it, PVP in other MMOs like SWTOR, WoW, Aion, AOC, etc is a joke. No one takes it seriously, and no MMO has e-sport PVP. It's too unbalanced.

GW2 has a very good chance at it because it's already the most balanced MMO, and about to become even more balanced in every little detail.

I think that with the mindset displayed in the video, they might have the biggest esport game of 2013. 

Anyway, just watch it in full and make up your own mind.

E-Sport???

I had to laugh my friend, no offense. GW2 isn't made for E-Sport. Maybe if you wish hard enough... but I can not imagine that this game will be played in E-Sport. What exactly is balanced in this MMO in terms of PvP? It is for a reason that there are only 1% of MMOs participating in E-Sports. And this is because of the design of MMOs that are not layed out to be equal. MMOs want you to feel that you have advantage over others, dominate others.

And domination has nothing to do with sports. Domination might be a coincidence when the moral of the other team is down, for some reason. But in Every Sport On This Planet, each team has equal opportunities to start with.

Simple example: Check out ESL if you live in the EU and see what kind of Games they offer and how few MMOs are in there. As far as I am correct, not even WoW is participating anymore.

If You or Anyone wants to participate in Esport, join Multiplayer titles and dont even bother with MMOs.
