This is a disgrace to PC gaming.

It kinda sounded like they will have more than WoW at MLG the way they were saying.  But yes I called Walter and told him about this... I think he sharted his pants... like really.

OK. How is this going to work? Your going to be doing BGs? or Arena? or what? Also you're going to need to be lvl 70 to make this all work out. I'm confused.

If i had to guess they would use the premade 70s... like on that custom server thing... thats the only way that it would seem to be fair and go for skill instead of who has the best gear. They said they will release all the details on May 15th.   Also yes its 3v3 Arena.

That's the only thing I could think of also. More interesting if they went 5V5.

It is real gay i hate this. Just another notch in the level that MLG has sold out, they pick up WoW but wont run Shadowrun? Just bc WoW has a huge financial backing, and shadowrun is only the best FPS outside of H2, this is sad

Blizzard is trying really hard to make WoW as much of an eSport as possible (as seen via the Official 3v3 tourney being held right now and this addition to the MLG).  They want to make it as competitive as Starcraft and Warcraft III, ideally.... which is going to be ridiculously hard to do as both of the aforementioned games are RTS's which are easily translated into a balanced tournament setting, but WoW is not as it has, even in the 'Sandbox Tourney Setup,*' problems with RNG** completely determining the outcome of a match.

RNG** really is the determining factor in WoWs exclusion in all major gaming associations, however if the current Blizzard Tournament Realm goes over well with minimum complaints and the MLG's acquisition also shows nothing but positives, then I say bring it on and good for Blizzard.

*As in the Tournament Realm... creating premade 70s with access to the same gear and items as everyone else.
