2. Also to be clear, we will not be holding any regional NA Esports in 2018 such as WGL, Silver League, Clan League, or Pro Tournaments with 7/70 format, or similar format to past seasons of WG. Other regions may choose to have these kinds of events, but the current NA plan will not include this. 

 

 

What is the decision making behind this,

"Let's kill off NA even more comrades! Great idea dimitri you get promotion!"

It's probably a lack of available staff or provable return of investment.  In other words, the limited staff that WGNA has can't free up enough time to run tournaments and/or no WGNA staff can prove that tournaments brings in any income.

 

I can completely understand the former.  The latter though will see a significant player drop off in my opinion.  I'm a very good example.  No tournaments = no more money spent on this game for me.  I'll play until my premium tank dries up and then move on.  Timing isn't terrible though...Camelot Unchained Beta SHOULD be this year with possibly the release late this coming winter.

I'm a little baffled by the phrasing of "will not" as opposed to ... I don't know, something which would make it more evidently based on the situation the company is in, rather than whim, which could create a smidgen of sympathy from NA players

NA = goldfish dumped from bowl, flopping around, last dying gasps.

 

WG = hand that dumped goldfish from bowl.

WG NA is going through big changes this year. This probably has to do more with the office move and staff shakeup than anything else.

Yeah... this announcement is totally going to bother about 1/10th of 1% of the Western Hemisphere (NA/SA) Server population.

 

I know I couldn't care any less.

Is this related to the fact that so many NA players are being busted for illegal mods?  They probably just don't want the headaches.

I'm not sure how players complaining leads to tournaments no longer being hosted.  A = Q?  Obviously?

It's not a lack of players, its one thing everyone else is glossing over. Lack of interest. If they don't have the numbers of people tuning, they turn it off.

Every change the chicken little syndrome kicks in on here. SKY IS FALLING OMG THE GAME IS DEAD.

 

Maybe WG is simply sick and tired of all the complaining and staff it takes to handle what I am sure is a disproportionate volume of tickets rolling in every day. From the small sample of people on here if the general NA population fills their computer screens with crap daily why bother to keep providing them a game.

Business is business. They actually are a great company because they have no moral compassion for their consumers. This decision was probably really easy for them to make!
