So iv been thinking alot about how Evolve can become an E-sport. We had the nerdist tourney that was very very entertaining. the matches were close and the competition was pretty fierce with all new players going at it. So i randomly thought of how I would have a team and what my set up would be. personally Id have a 4 man team so that I can play as trapper as well as the monster. but if the tourney rules HAS to be 5 players with one monster player then I would just be that. then i thought hmm…if we ended up in the finals for 100,000$ best of 5. that means that each of my match wins are worth 33,333ish$!. If we say did a coin toss, and I elected to go first (confidence op). and the match was dead even. at the end naturally if we had the choice id pick monster for the final match. What does that mean? that means that 4 other members are depending on me and me alone to carry the team to victory. How intense would that moment be!
Now id like to bring up League of Legends here. Wev seen many players quit, leave teams, go into deep depressions from the stress of playing alone. in fact one player in Korea i believe tried to commit suicide. now that game is 5v5, the pressure is spread even. what would happen to players that are facing 4v1 and 4 other members can blame/argue with your play as X monster…
Now i would hope if it ever got that big the community would revolt against the league-esque community. And that teams would never fight with their monster players to try to force them to do better or else.
Anyways that was my thought of the day lol the weight of the monster player for big money tournaments would be HUGE. in a best of 5 hed play a mandatory 2 matches. with a possible 3rd. thats…60% of the outcome.
Tell me what you guys think!
