Or why the sudden rush for E-Sports… And no, it’s not because both have been used more often than is probably healthy… Reality TV. The bane of discerning television viewers everywhere. It’s cheap, frequently tawdry, and requires little to absolutely no effort on behalf of the programme makers to film and put together. Think of Doctor Who vs Big Brother. Which do you think is the easier programme to make? Without a doubt it’s BB. In fact they can churn out hour long programmes on a daily basis whenever it comes around each year. Ditto telly like I’m a Celebrity etc. Cheap,
We’re now in the middle of the long night of no content, with an undefined dawn awaiting at some nebulous future point. With potentially so long to go before Legion launches, possibly as long as another 8 months, for those that still want to play WoW, what is there to occupy your time? What can you possibly do in a game where there’s been no visible content in over 6 months already, with a seemingly bigger barren desert stretching out in front of you as well? What to do when, like me, your guild is all but dead, awaiting resurrection in Legion?
Yeah, I know. It shocked me too, trust me. As you may or may not be aware, I’ve never been the world’s greatest lover of PvP in WoW. In fact I’m somewhat exclusively a PvE carebear for want of a better term. I’ve shunned PvP in all of the nearly 8 years I’ve been playing off and on since vanilla, and I’ve never really been interested or motivated to partake in PvP, of either Organised or World flavours. Certainly playing any PvP I had to, for achievements, mounts etc over the years on my Paladin was an exercise in restraint.
