Kind of proves that the dev team is trying to make this game an E-sport, with the increased focus on PvP in this expansion.

Arena is already an e-sport.and where do you see that in this news, or in any comments? how does that come here? duh
I somewhat disagree with there being a "PvP Focus". Moreover, what does this have to do with anything in the article?

CGS made the statement that they're "ceasing all operations immediately"i.e. no one cares for pro gamers as a form of entertainmentThat considered , i doubt the dev's care about e-sports

maybe the increased focus on pvp is an attempt to compete this warhammer and the likes and not an e sport.after all the world gaming league or whatever it was called failed.

What? Yes, they added a new battleground and new arena or two, but if they didn't people would scream and yell about slaps in the face because they didn't give any love to pvp. But I assume you are talking about Wintergrasp and how its completely pvp focused. The thing is, its amazing. Bugs about winning and the effect of tenacity on vehicles aside, it really is world pvp. One thing the game has truely been lacking, most would not qualify raiding Westfall or Crossroads and waiting for other capped players to show REAL world pvp. Wintergrasp is world pvp though, majority are 80, or at least 70, and there is a system in place besides ending early because of an imbalance between the factions. The best thing about WG is that there are rewards for doing it. Killing guards and 3 or 4 other 70(80) players would net little honor, and nothing else besides the satisfaction of wrecking someone else's playtime.It's possible to even argue the focus is more on pve than pvp. What is the main point of winning WG? the raid at the end, which drops both s5 and t7 ( I think t7 drops). It also allows for spirit shards to be gathered from, not other players, but BOSSES.If the focus was on pvp, there would be no new zones, no raids or instances added, and no raise in the level cap, as that would only hinder people getting to the pvp.

I love baiting people.I'm sorry. But I really needed to see peoples opinions of WG. And I love to see people flame to ridiculous comments.Once again, I'm sorry.
