COD #2: How to Work as a Team

For those of you interested in competitive Call of Duty and are on a team that is trying to get their team work down, here are some basic guidelines for what needs to be done in order to achieve success. This may sound reiterated if you've ever tried to compete on a 4 man roster: Communication would probably be the biggest thing to focus on only because of the significant of it. It could be that factor that makes or breaks a team in a match depending on how well the 4 members of the team can use Call outs effectively, have good awareness and say where enemies are, etc. Holding up your end of the team is a huge thing just basically for the concept of it. This is the most obvious one as it makes sense of what needs to be done. If you hold up your own, then it won't cause any flaws within your teams attitude for one another. Do your player roles, and listen to the captain of the team because it establishes a small chain of command and only on person calls the shots; this makes things organized and structured. What can be added on to your end, learn how to position yourself on maps as that will cause a lot of problems for your opponent and will start establishing map control for your team. Another thing to try to learn is team chemistry, it may be the hardest thing to establish due to the differences between the players that may be evident early on in the teams life span. Once chemistry is there, it's very difficult to go away, and you'll see professional teams like EnVyUs and team Obey have remarkable chemistry. Even if every member of the team had below average individual skill levels, if the chemistry and communication is there, it still does the job and can bring teams to the top. And lastly, establishing friendships outside of the game. Friendships always help with the way your team operates as it gives you time to understand your team mates better so you can know what they are thinking in game, as well as knowing what they are like at their bests and lowest times. Very important to know what to do when there is a problem in game and someone gets frustrated. These things will all help any team trying to achieve good team work all around. I hope I have opened some eyes to how teamwork is done properly. I look forward to seeing some new teams break into pro status next year, good luck! Make sure to follow me on twitter @@Slauney

Just a quick and dirty CoD write up

For a while now I've been thinking about writing up a Call of Duty article, and since I'm finally managing to find some time between studying for final exams so I might as well do it now. This one's going to be quick and dirty, just some talking about some of the basics and weapons. So to those who have not played yet, or haven't played a lot, there is a huge variety of weapons in Modern Warfare 3 that are really, really powerful, and others not so much. If you look at the Assault Rifles, the ones that stand out are the typical ones like the ACR, G36C, and the Scar are all reasonably powerful and are great weapons to use; but one of the strongest weapon is easily the Type-95. The more seasoned Call of Duty players are the people you'll see understanding the rifle and knowing the strengths and weaknesses. On the other side of it, the amateur/mostly the casual group on forums, started by complaining a lot about how it is so over-powered, so to speak. People need to stop b****ing about these things and start getting better. Its a good gun, get over how strong it is. I like it a lot, its pretty dope. Besides that group of weapons, something interesting is actually how f'ing good the snipers are, I was blown away. If you don't usually use any snipers, they are actually a lot of fun for just fooling around with it, but even if you want to rack up some kills in public matches, they are really strong.Or if you want to run around, there are some really good SMG that can be deadly. Talking to those players competitively speaking, you already know what guns do well in different situations, but make sure to know your strong points. Try to refrain from using a gun you aren't comfortable with or even using a SMG when an Assault Rifles is easier to use (or vise versa). It's horrible to see people use some guns because they saw a 'Pro' use one. If you don't own the game, at least give it a try, don't listen to that bull sh*t of people saying its a sh*tty game. If I must say, it's probably one of the more enjoyable games of the series, it's just that there's already been so many people are finally starting to feel the repetitiveness of it. Or if you're that hipster that says that you won't and that you've been playing CoD games since CoD2 or earlier, just support the game and watch game play at the very least. I'll be writing a new write-up about CoD probably sometime this week. Hopefully I didn't offend anyone from this, hope you guys are following me on twitter @Slauney, and if not... We're still cool. Tweet me, I'd like to hear feedback, but no need to sweat over it!

To the Halo Community; Importance vs. Reality

As of late, there has been a lot of heat on the Halo community to step up; my goal with this is to throw out some reasoning behind it, the proper action to take, and some thoughts about it. First off, I love the Halo community, as well as many other communities involving competitive play, and I show no means of disrespect to any person or title with this blog. Most of you have seen, and have been paying attention to, the comparisons between titles and communities, but even more about what games are going to be played on the circuit, and on what consoles. Unfortunately, for a lot of you, only focus on these little things. As I had stated in my last entry, any game that is competitive on all consoles, shouldn't have arguing communities and what is better. To have anything become successful, everyone needs to come together and do their part even if they don't agree with one decision. Want to know the reason why MLG is beginning to steer away from Halo? Well, at least why I think it is: Halo has been apart of MLG since it's start, and has helped shape it to what it is today in North America, and almost globally now, but that isn't be the ONLY factor going into this process. Yes, it is a game that is fun, and competitive, but for the last few seasons, I have that feel that Halo isn't bringing in the money that it could, especially now that games like LoL and SC2 take a lot of the viewers. Hell, even CoD is getting better and better in viewer numbers. If you think about the business for MLG, why support a title that is not bringing in money? Even Sundance himself said he could just drop everything with the exception of LoL and SC2 and still be profitable. Everyone has to start realizing that it is strongly possible that Halo will not be on the circuit for next year, unless something drastic changes. Although, there are a lot of pro players that are contracted by MLG for Halo, and there are many sponsors that revolve around Halo, so don't lose hope yet. What everyone that wants Halo to stay on should do, is start with making content, streaming, professionalism, be mature, those kinds of things to show why it is still strong. Another thing to consider is to be ready for anything that could happen in case MLG wont support it next year, just be prepared for it. I was ecstatic to see Ghandi and crew make The Halo Council, it is definitely a step in the right direction. Another thought that would be even better, is a show specifically set for console titles, not just one. This way, all titles can be discussed, the differences competitively, and talked about how each one can grow even further. Even bring on a guest that is just a fan of the games and get input from his point of view possibly. Personally, I love Halo and CoD, and like seeing anything being discussed. What I hate the most though, is the fictional competition between communities. It absolutely tares me apart. If anything needs to grow, it really needs to stop and everyone should start looking bigger. To those that want to see CoD on the circuit next year; cool, awesome, but stop asking which console its on as its not confirmed. Calm down, and think about if Sundance wanted people to know what system its on, don't you think he would want everyone to know? It will be announced in time, just relax about it. Enough of my rant, I'll end with this: Remember that for one thing to be successful, everyone needs to do something about it, not just a small group of people. BE PROFESSIONAL, as people are always watching your interactions such as developers or MLG itself. Don't give up hope, do your part! Business is business, keep that in the back of your head. Thanks for reading guys, make sure to follow me on twitter to get updates @Slauney. I'll be writing a new entry soon, so keep checking back! OH! And I might start doing Vlogs starting over the holiday season as my computer is fixed. Stay tuned!

Every Console Game Should Stick Together

Let me start off by saying that Im going to try to get some new blogs up over the holiday season that I am really excited about. I look forward to your future comments and I hope I can continue moreover in the new year as well. As I have seen lately, more and more console games that came out, more so specifically the shooter genre of games, have provided a lot of discussion over which is better and more competitive, etc. It makes sense, as that is every competitive players wish would be to play the most competitive title available. With the MLG 2011 season wrapping up, even before it ended in Providence, many people were already worrying about if their favourite game was going to be on the circuit next season. To say the least, I understand everyones concern, but at the same time, the current season wasn't even over yet. These types of issues lead to lack of support of a certain title leading up to the National event, and then continuing to the off-season where decisions are made. Right now if you are not aware, there is a large feud as to which game, CoD, Halo, and/or Gears will be on the circuit next year. Everyone has one or two of those 3 that they want to see next year, but unfortunately its possible they won't all be there. MLG has even started putting polls up on Facebook to get an idea of what to go with from the evidence from voting. I enjoy seeing rivalry in these games but it has gotten to the time where there is a much larger picture forming. It has been said that MLG is changing its logo next year to incorporate the PC community, but I do not believe it is confirmed yet. The reason why I say that all console games need to stick together for MLG, is because of the growing attention towards PC for MLG. Not like that is a bad thing, but it can make console gaming in North America start to decrease in size and less focus directed towards it. Starcraft 2 and League of Legends deserves attention as they are pretty much without a doubt two of the biggest titles on the PC, or even in eSports right now, but more games like these that are going to be released could become the end of console FPS's in the near future. If you want to do something about it, first off, you need to get really involved with console eSports and the assorted communities, and the communities need to bind together. Recently, websites such as GearsNation and HaloNation has come together and are starting to work together, the Call of Duty group has started coming together like never before, which is a HUGE step in the right direction. Secondly, start creating content, or make more content like gameplay and start uploading to youtube and streams, this will boast good attention to the communities. Just make sure you are being professional in the public eye, of course. And lastly, keep updated with various forums and voice your opinions on there. Show activity and commitment to console gaming. If this happens, it could bring a bright future to all console gaming, FPS to say one genre and show MLG why those cherished games should stay. Try not to put down other games because you don't like them or feel like they don't deserve to be on the circuit in 2012. Show your support for all of them. I LOVE both the PC and console games, but Im sure myself as well as countless amounts of people, don't want to see games like Halo disappear just like that. Do something about these games, just remember that even though you think something like "MLG would never get rid of this game because...", business is business, no matter what you think. Thanks for reading guys, make sure to follow me on twitter to get updates @Slauney. I'll be writing a new entry soon, so keep checking back!

Gears Blog #1: Learning the Ropes

I have noticed since the day of release that there are many, many people switching over from a lot of different games and genres. The focus of this blog is to help out some people with learning everything about multiplayer. Note: I highly suggest that all new players play, and complete the campaign as it will give you a feel for the game since it is a 3rd person shooter game. The first thing you may be wondering is what weapons to use, what game types to play, and all of that stuff. Its quite simple after you start playing a few games; but, if you are still wondering these things, maybe I can shed some light on this: When it comes to game types, like I had said above, start out using Team Deathmatch as it is the simplest game type that is able to be played. When you get into a lobby, it will prompt you to select weapons and what character you want to select (the character does not affect anything, select who you want). If you are still curious to see what weapon you will end up liking, you might as well try them all out. You will soon find out the ones you like and do not. Personally, I feel that the two weapons that are good for new players would be the Lancer (or even the Hammerburst because it can be zoomed in and is more controlled by single shot bursts), and the Gnasher Shotgun. I am not really a big fan of the Sawed off just because you die before you even know you got shot. Although, the Retro Lancer is very powerful, I did not mention it as a good weapon to start out because of the control it has. It has so much power, but since the accuracy is low, you must maintain a 3 burst shot to get it to be consistent. You may see it a lot in multiplayer, but that could be only for the bayonette charge it has; which is really damn cool! After getting used to that, if you feel your sensitivity is a little high or low, make sure to go into your settings and change it up to something that you feel would be very comfortable. In-game sensitivity is crucial because if you get in a long range fight or even close range shotgun, you don't want to be moving too slow or out of control. Make sure to be playing the 'Quick match' multiplayer mode so you don't mess up statistics when you play ranked matches (that is if you care about that). If you are aspiring to be a competitive Gears player, give some of your time to read a couple threads created by LordJerith: A word about "competitive settings" in Gears of War 3 and Please get a Randomnade account. In the near future, many of my blogs will contain Gears of War 3 content, so make sure to stay tuned to my twitter (@Slauney) when I say upcoming blogs will be released.

Be Nice to Your Neighbor!

Hey guys, I promised a write up last week, but I am still settling into school and work. So I will make an attempt at this one! In an ideal world, most if not all families teach their kids to have the values of knowing right from wrong, honesty, respect, kindness and manners to the best of their abilities. You may be sitting there thinking to yourself that this makes complete sense and always happens. Well, not exactly, but you're close! These qualities will bring you very far in life, but some people forget them, possibly never thought about using it, or even worse not caring about it at all. It is very unfortunate, but you will encounter people like this in your everyday life even if you don't notice it at first. Being nice to people is VERY IMPORTANT as you give and receive the respect that you desire while feeling good about engaging someone in a positive way. If you think of how the eSports industry, you probably know exactly what I mean by saying you will always run into people that you hate to listen to while playing a game because of their attitude. This is never going to be avoided no matter how much you try, but it is part of life. The reason i am harping on this is that with all things considered, if you are trying to get into the competitive eSports industry and have a semi-decent reputation, you will possibly want to know how to be nice to people and have meaningful conversations with people to show interest. . When trying to team with players for a certain title, if you have a bad reputation with other players from that community, things won't look good for you starting out and you will have to try even harder to prove that you are more than that rather than starting with a clean slate. I say: 'Be nice to your neighbor', metaphorically in this situation as your neighbors are everyone in a games community, because one day you might have to associate with them, and you don't want them to hate you or think badly about you. So with that being said, always try to refrain from going on twitter and saying horrible things to other players or people that follow the game. It always helps that if you have a problem with someone, try to talk to them directly, and never go public with the situation. Always be kind and nice to other people, especially other players in the community. You might have to team with them someday! Be fair, play fair, win fair.

Part 2: A Guide to Get More Followers

Over the past couple of months, twitter has been growing at a phenomenal rate for eSports, and more people are getting involved. This is exactly what the industry needs for it to grow and move on to the next level. Social media has been a big part for pop culture, developing fan basis', sharing quick news and used for meeting new people who have the same interests as you. I've heard the question come up several times before, and hell, even I ask it sometimes; how does one get more followers? I'm here to try to give the best answers possible and help some fellow gamers out. . One of the most obvious ways to get more for eSports related tweets is to be good at a certain competitive title, be good at a few games, or just play a lot of games that people have played and can share game information with. If you are a professional gamer, sometimes it's not even hard to get followers as all you would have to do is compete in tournament and do well. If they engage with the community and their fans a lot as well, only makes it better for them. Communicating with everyone in the community is always a plus for anyone as it shows that you have a personality, can get along with people, and appreciate a possible fan basis that you have. Here's another way to get followers, and this one is more like a hit or miss type of deal; vVv redvsblue touched on this in one of his blog posts recently that he had gained many followers from just following vVv Gaming's twitter account. This is good for a couple of reasons, one, it builds a relationship with vVv's news content put up on social media, and two, if you associate with vVv's tweets, you can get exposure from vVv as well as retweets of your information you like to share. You can not only follow vVv Gaming, but everyone in vVv and many other organizations that have twitter. The only reason I say this way is a hit or miss is because you wont be guaranteed followers, but it give you a chance to get exposure and publicity for your own twitter account. . This last method to getting followers that I can share; and this one is my personal favorite idea; is to be good at one thing, and one thing only. This is a fantastic thing because if you are really good, or can do good things with something, you will be able to share info from your perspective of it. If you are truly good at something alone and start tweeting about it, people will start coming to you for the info because they wont be able to find it from anyone else. This is why all actors and artists have many followers, not only because they are famous, but because people are interested in their life and what they put on twitter. That is a horrible comparison to the gaming community, I know. I was just making an idea of what you could do with twitter and your own personality. If you're good to people on twitter and know how to make friends, you are only going to look better and your image will grab peoples attention. Always make sure to connect with people and RT their cool information they share. You just might get rewarded! . I hope I have helped some people grab some followers with this information, and I want to give a shoutout to @vVv_Gaming for doing what they do best, and @vVv_redvsblue for giving his insight on how to get followers quickly! Make sure to throw me a follow on twitter @Slauney for vVv news, eSports content and possible blog ideas. Thanks for reading.

Why Social Media is Important

This is going to be part one of a little discussion on twitter and social media. This one is going to be rather small, but part two will be a little longer. Social media can be used for a lot of things, one being the privilege of connecting with other users around the globe, and another being the fact that you can spread news fast. Even today there a millions upon millions of people using media sites such as twitter, facebook and Reddit, but still countless people that still look at it and hesitate to open up to the idea of it. Have you ever wanted to see what your favorite celebrities are up to? Ever want to get a scrim in Gears of War or Call of Duty? Those are two very small reasons to start getting on and spreading content with other people. Every day I see many competitive eSports players constantly using twitter to connect with the community for their game and to also talk to other professional players to get the latest news and to keep communication. Also, for example; if you're trying to find as team in a competitive title, its a bonus to follow huge gaming communities such as vVv Gaming or Evil Geniuses, depending on the game though. I will touch up on the importance of that in part two If you started to use twitter effectively starting now, you could easily become friends with players you aspire to play against some day by just having an open mind re tweeting them and replying to their tweets with good answers. A little respect can go a long way. Even recently I have been seeing MLG news spread on Reddit. I personally don't use this site very often as I should, due to my schedule, but it is a truly great place to hang out and read up on some material. Even if you just went there for MLG news, of some of vVv's content such as the losers bracket, I'm sure you'll find something you come across and love to read casually. After that you'll keep going back to it whether or not you're going back for something specific. . Networking websites such as facebook are great, but I wouldn't say it is as effective for business and news. Although, it's remarkable for fan pages and close friends and family of yours who you like to share close encounters with. The sole reason why it is atrocious for spreading news quickly, is because of the 'friend request' feature. Personally if I would go on faceook, only those few people would see my content, and possibly whoever is visiting my page at the current time if the settings are set for anyone to view. Of course, you can compare this to however many are following you, but anyone can look at the page and see your tweets, anyone can follow you without any permissions, and everything is all put together by 140 characters or less each tweet. It's short and sweet. Facebook can be sometimes referred to the social networking site that lets you tell small life stories for yourself; compared to twitter where its fast news you want to share with anyone. Don't let me discourage you from using facebook, but it only does some things, and sometimes those things you'll want to do but can't due to the restrictions of facebook. Social media sites are very important to our society right now and is essential for a lot of companies, friends, businesses to share news and possible updates they have. This is the social media age where everyones going online to see what people are up to. Its a must to be involved if you want to be able to further connect to people you want to know more about. . Thanks for reading, part two of this will be out on Thursday, September 8th at around 5:30 est. With me going back to school this Wednesday, the amount of blogs I write may be restricted a little. So starting next week, I will be writting a blog every Monday and Thursday of each week (unless something comes up that will require me to post-pone some. But I hope to have helped some people understand why social media is important, and hopefully I will see a lot more people on twitter soon! Make sure to throw me a follow on twitter @Slauney for vVv news, eSports content and possible blog ideas!

My MLG After Action Report

I know it's near a week after MLG Raleigh, but I thought I would discuss what had happened there, my experiences, how much of a blast it was, and the days that came after returning home. My journey began on Thursday before the event, and probably like many other people, I was not fully packed. Racing through the house, putting last minute things in the bags. It was really the works. Having that early flight that morning, i had to wake my brother up and race to the airport. The only thing that made me happy to get on a flight was the fact that it was my first flight any wheres as well as my first MLG event that I was going to attend. Shortly after getting on the plane, I soon realized there wasn't anything to be excited about as it just felt like a short drive, but being in the air. It didn't help much that I had to get a connecting flight right after to get to Raleigh. So When I landed and explored the downtown area of the city, there wasn't really much to do at all but just wait for Friday to come and just hang out with some people around the hotel. I ended up doing exactly that. A bunch of vVv people So Friday morning, pumped to get into the venue as soon as possible, woke up early for it and felt amazing about it. Walked down to the venue, hoped in line with my team and just waited. We didn't care that we had to wait, as long as we got into the venue as soon as possible we didn't care! Friday was certainly the best day without a doubt though; want to know why?: DAY9! Turns out that since i had had a gold membership, I got to go in a bit early before everyone else, and from what I had noticed was that all of the SC2 casters were signing autograph. So me being a HUGE fan-boy for all of them, I was already in the line for it before i had realized it! Getting kind of gitty and excited like a child on Christmas morning, I honestly forgot that I needed something to sign. I looked through my stuff and it hit me, I didn't have anything important, so I just grabbed a one dollar bill from my pocket and thought it was cheesy enough it just may workout to be clever. After all of them signed it, Day9 was last and insisted he wanted to be the only one to sign the back, and my reply: "You may certainly sign that side, my dollar is already ruined from ink, how much worse could it get on the other side?". Other than my Day9 encounter, there wasn't anything really that special besides meeting everyone in vVv that attended, team Believe the Hype; and most importantly to compete with my team for Black Ops. Leading up to the event, i was asked to play in Call of Duty, which got me to think would it really be worth the money to just spectate? So I agreed to it as it was just enough time to practice before the event, and to make things easier for me; the team pass was already paid for. Sadly enough throughout Friday night we didn't really compete very well. All games were very close, but we quickly got knocked down into the lower bracket. MLG Raleigh Doors Open! The next day rolls around quickly, my team and I get down there early to get as much warm ups as possible to get ready for our first match. It turns out that MoneyShot, our coach had arranged a scrim with Obey, which really got us going and got us more prepared to play that day. We finished up there and headed to play our match in Losers Bracket round one and feeling good going into it. We really didn't expect it to be much of a challenge, but realistically we had lost out 2-0 and from right then we knew we should have had a lot more practice going into Raleigh. Things don't always work out, though, we went to have fun and compete. The event wasn't a complete failure and we weren't that upset from it. Other than Saturday morning, there wasn't anything worthy describing. Oh! Cheering on Believe the Hype as well as our Starcraft players was amazing, I can't forget that! Team Strictly Business The last day of the event came up and even though I wasn't competing, I really, really wanted to go down and spectate as well as cheer for our vVv teams still in it. The fist person I see in there was MoneyShot and our teammate F500. He beings describing people that approached him with really good team offers. I look at him and say, "You deserve them, you should easily have a top 12 team to coach!". Obviously he deserved some offers as he could easily coach a better team than us because we did so poorly at the event. So after that ordeal was done, I found out that REO was competing in the Mortal Kombat 9 top 16 tournament. All I can say is WOW! MK9 was getting more views than Call of Duty and the electricity in the crowd was outstanding! REO, REO, REO the crowd cheers. I couldn't be happier about watching him play, and with him taking first place it made me become a fan of watching MK9. I'm still not surprised that he took first though, not surprised at all. I also really loved Believe the Hype play and it has truly made me a fan of Reach. Before I could never really watch a full game of halo, and now I was just so into watching that team play as they made it look so easy. I loved every second of MLG Raleigh, glad I attended the event and met all of these fine people from vVv. I wanna give shout-outs to everyone in vVv, my teammates and everyone I had met at the event! After that very short weekend, I started to figure out what game I will pursue next and probably compete with more and more each season. Its a toss up between two or three game titles, but I am sure I'll figure it out by the end of November. Maybe I'll talk about it in a future blog, who knows? Thanks for reading! And don't forget to follow me on twitter for awesomeness! (Click the link --> @Slauney)

A Different Approach for MLG

Over the past couple of months, it has been pondering to me about this idea; no, more like a concept of a different approach MLG could take for some titles on their pro circuit. After many times of thinking about this and from it crossing my mind on numerous occasions, I thought it would be best to share it and get other peoples input, get reactions from fellow MLG followers, and gather information of how other people would think about it. Where Major League Gaming is right now, is where it should be; on the right path and doing something big for eSports. But wouldn't there be other ways to make progress for gaming? What would some people think of making something such as pool play at live events, larger? If that is thought about more and more, I would hope that people would start questioning themselves about where they want to see something that they want to grow so much, and want to do something about it. My idea, which has been on my mind so much lately, would be to have the top 16 teams for MLG, and make them solidified teams with team names that would never change, and start treating this as a real league instead of just one event, roster changes, next event, etc.. With these 16 teams, there could be a variation to a "fantasy draft" of every player who has ever acquired pro points for their respected game title, and get seeded one to how ever many who has gotten points at events, and who would be willing to be involved while being active for each event/league. Lets take an example; 16 teams, which would make 64 players, say we take an additional 2 players for each team to make full rosters, which would make 96 players. If this were to happen, this would make something like Free Agency become more organized and treated more professionally. Teams wouldn't be able to choose their roster, but only make trading to acquire players or Free Agents if another team had released a player before hand or put on something such as a trading block. You don't see the New York Yankees being able to choose their team going into the season, right? However there could be a problem with this as well; the money being put forward to start doing something like this, as well as the money to afford each player with each player being paid differently. To start out, have it as each player cant get more than a certain amount a year, and then slightly increase that every year until the money gets situated. This can be overcome, but to take it safe, only do things in small steps to achieve it. Each team would have a coach, a manager, hopefully many organizations could come apart with this, and much more people associated with it. As for open teams, they could stay the same. However, the only catch is that if you have won open bracket, you only win open bracket and receive pro points. They could still make rosters the way they want, but each player individually would receive pro points and automatically become Pro Free Agents if they want, of course. With that being said, people that are in the pro league would get pro points, but they would only be used for the Free Agency for ranking purposes. If a team wins a live event, or wins an online league would receive a bonus, and teams that perform well get to attend some sort of variation of a playoffs. So many things can come of this, especially with an online league next season, there can be a more effective qualifier for events. Obviously things like Starcraft and similar titles at live events would be an exception to this as it is a single player title, and each player would receive separate marketing rather than team marketing. This could be the next step to make things bigger and into a professional league, rather than just single events leading up to a final event. Not saying it is not professional already, just giving people a thought to what things could be in the near/mid future of competitive gaming. Don't you think it would be cool if this actually were to happen?
