Is the tournament for you?

PvP and the establishment of the World of Warcraft as a valid e-sport is currently a very big topic. Blizzard recently opened the 2008 World of Warcraft Arena Tournament Realm as very real proof of how serious they are about earning WoW a spot in the e-sport scene. It's a very bold concept, taking a MMOG and turning it into something very much like a First Person Shooter (FPS) for PvP combat. Will it work though, what good points does it have and what are the bad, are people willing to pay another $20 just to play in the tournaments each 6 weeks? All this and more are looked at in this editorial: Is the Arena Tournament Worth your Money?

When you log on to create a character, it's very cool to think that you can try any class in full gear at max level immediately. I can't count how many times I have been frustrated by a certain class and felt they were over powered in PvP, wishing I had that class instead of mine. Well now you can. With that in mind I logged on and created a Druid healer to annoy and terrorize my opponents.
