Just wondering what the eSports fans on this forum think of the whole pay per view row that is going on at the moment in regards to Starcraft 2 tournaments. There was a thread on TeamLiquid discussing the need to monetise SC2 or the whole scene will die (Link here: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=310239). If you read it, the majority of people say they don't want to pay to watch SC2 tournaments and I have to agree with them to a point. I would pay for SC2 for any tournament, if the production value was high enough, the amount of content I was getting was high enough and of a high enough quality, and ofc, the price was right. However, there is very very few SC2 tournaments that offer this. In fact, I would be as bold as to say that in my own opinion, GOMTV are the only people producing SC2 content worth paying for, and that is because they are doing it as a TV show, so it is produced to a VERY high standard. Recently MLG announced that it will be PPV for the Winter Arena (link: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=311652). Now, overall I really like MLG. There is a lot of things I don't like about MLG, such as the extended series, their choice of casters is sometimes poor or when they have on occasion shown lower ranking players games on stream when higher ranking players have been playing. That aside, MLG is great. What MLG isn't though, in my opinion, is a show worth $20 for a weekend. I think of MLG being the best non-Korean SC2 event. I think its great, but it is not worth paying for. I mean, small example, MLG are offering "20hours of live gameplay" over the weekend for $20, thats $1 per hour. My GSL and GSTL yearly subscriptions combined cost me around $0.15 per hour (based on the average length of a GOMTV broadcast being 3hours, 5 days per week). It doesn't take a genius to see the better offer there. Even if it worked out as £2 per hour to watch GSL, it would still in my opinion be the better offer. So, I ask the eSports fanboys of BOON Control, would you pay/are you paying to watch SC2 ? Why do you pay for if you pay ? Why do you pay it ? Would you pay for all SC2 tournaments ? You know my feelings from what I have said.
