"Children, leave the successful business athlete alone. He is obviously putting his vast corporate tactics and athletic physique behind a new world wide plan to introduce WoW raiding as an internationally recognised 'sport'. He just needs to finish playing in the Shattered Halls first."
Best reply EVARRRR!
"It's ok The Left Wings. People were hostile to Jesus too. They just don't understand. But if you keep being so self-effacing and humble, I'm sure people will start to listen, rather than assume you are a sad deluded man who bases his self-confidence on his skill at a recreational video game that requires little skill for those of adequate intelligence."
Very close second.
"So no, Lefty, you aren't some wizened old seer who knows the way of things to come but is shunned for your wisdom. You're just like one of those crazy hobos with a sandwich board sign and no pants, screaming out apocalyptic warnings that "the end is nigh." Sure, buddy, the end is coming real quick... the Sun will explode in, what, a few billion years. Right around the corner. "
what a long ass thread, TLW is slick though... XD
that "l" wasnt supposed to be there... I dont play WoW but damn.. RavenBasher is fucking hilarious. But I do agree that internet gaming will be a sport soon enough... just not WoW. Probably something more exciting. Hell they already have game tournaments on G4
yep. Id see ironically sports game being big, theres already big name Madden Tournaments and NBA Live tourneys... Id love to see a Resistance tournament or like Tekken or something... that i would watch on TV for sure.
I know that Warcraft 3, Starcraft and Counterstrike got TV matches.
I also know a show which is totally dedicated to WoW. There are already some TV channels out there who just bring content about computer games.
watching sports at home.... why not..
but i don't see the point of watching other people play (be it a FPS, MMO or whatever) on TV O.o
you can as well buy and play the game (if it is not free) yourself (something that can't always be done for traditional sports because we are too weak/lazy/... :p)
