    Plague of Rats reacted to Firetruck in Why vVv Should Support Nosgoth.   
    Hi, I'm Firetruck, Moderator for the Nosgoth subreddit. 
     
    Looking at the Steam Charts can be somewhat misleading, as the game had a huge spike in population at the beginning of open beta, but it's now stabilized. This happens in all games, obviously. The spike kind of corrupts any averages you might calculate, but looking at the graph shows a steady population at 1,000 to 3,000 during the week, and up to 4,000 or 5,000 on weekends. Looking at twitch and the subreddit, however, shows that the community has only been growing. The subreddit has gained about a hundred players in the past ten days.  Looking at popular Twitch accounts, RazielWarmonic and HeyZeus, you can see that they've both been gaining viewers and followers in the past months of activity. It's apparent that the Nosgoth community is growing, albeit at a less-than-spectacular rate. 
     
    The reason for this sluggish growth is that the developer/publisher doesn't advertise in the traditional ways. They rely on Twitch channels and word-of-mouth to grow the game's popularity. This is where gaming communities such as vVv can come in.
     
    Rather than seeing the community as too small to dedicate a division to, vVv should be an early adopter and pioneer community building efforts to grow Nosgoth's community and competitive scene. The presence of an already established, "big name" gaming group like vVv would only bring more players into the game, and these new players will be looking for friends to play with, mentors and guides, and communities in which to discuss the game—all of which vVv is able to provide. This way, creating a division for Nosgoth will not only strengthen the community of the game, but also help grow this community at the same time. 
    What sets Nosgoth apart as a game is its focus on being competitive: the game and developers are centered around building something that is fun, balanced, and demanding of skilled players. The developers are also active in the community: I was pleasantly surprised by this when I published a self-recorded chart of DPS for different vampire classes, as the lead developer decided to respond to my post by giving us the actual numbers! Also, the game is balanced, with different classes and skills each having their own place in the metagame, almost all of them being "sidegrades" to each other.
     
    All in all, you'll find that Nosgoth is a great game that fosters a strongly-knit community. Some players (like at the start of open beta) pick up the game, are dissatisfied with it, and leave for whatever reason, but you'll find that there's already a strong core community that remains in game—these are the players that are passionate about the game, who dedicate themselves to becoming better at it.
     
    The fact that Nosgoth ESL only has a $200 prize pool right now isn't as important as the fact that there are players coming in every day who care about the game passionately. Nosgoth is growing, and has a solid foundation with which to enter bigger and better esports events. With solid core gameplay, there's no doubt that Psyonix and SE will continue to support this game as an esport. All it needs right now is a community to help foster its growth.

    Plague of Rats got a reaction from vVv Saturn in Why vVv Should Support Nosgoth.   
    I would say they would be interested in both, the value of spinning up a divsion would be the simple fact that the game is in its younger stages not yet tainted by the reach of tons of people. This way once the game takes off into full form and becomes popular, vVv can have it already saturated with its influence and personality.
     
    Edit 1: Because its not about if the game is going to be popular, its a matter of when. And when the ESL tourneys going to be be streamed on Twitch this upcoming month, the popularity of the game will increase tons.

    This looks good but I agree with Krow, for example: The first time I went against King Stig (he is ADC main and I am support), I learned so much in that one session from him than I ever did looking/reading articles on how to improve. However I will give this a shot as well.

    Hey guys just wanted to give you all a quick update on when the ADL will be returning. As of right now we are thinking that it will return Tuesday October 21st, the Tuesday after worlds. However this date is not set in stone. We will have the finalized date for the next League of Legends Town Hall Meeting that will be coming up soon. Please keep an eye out for when the Town Hall will be, because everything will be answered then. Thank you all for your patience and I look forward to serving you all as leader of the ADL.
