Could You Handle the Competition? Would You Want To?

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? Byron "Messiah" Mudry looks into all this and more in this editorial.

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.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
