Wow such a lot to digest, but all very appropriate. Its good to have an open discussion about this and important that we have such diverse opinions as it implies that we are all passionate about it, which is a good thing and at the same time very frustrating, but that's life.

Ground Control has what it takes to be a sport.

If you try to measure it in numbers, you will fail. Whether those numbers are age, or not having a large user base or whatever. In every case, it's just an arbitrary leap-of-faith, an assumption pulled out of somebody's ass.

True, GC doesn't have the user base now. So what? The game has what it takes. I can feel it.

You need to see it in qualitative terms. You cannot measure the qualitative with quantitative. If something works, it works. You can't define it. It just works.

(Quants routinely fail to grasp these things.)

Anyway, we'll see what the future brings. THAT is the only thing that counts.

if i may,

everyone in here is right, one way or the other...
Perhaps GC could be considered as an e-Sport, if it had a large community, with proper support, etc etc etc... if there was this support, possibly there would be a department dedicated to bug fixing... we can't know if GC isn't valid for e-Sports because we don't have the mechanisms to put it to test.

At the same time, i don't see anything wrong in trying to promote the game. Will it give results?(turning the it into a e-Sports) has default answer: No. But is it wrong? No. Does it make people feel better? I think so, else they wouldn't do it. can it bring more players? Yes.

We should try & get massive & rebellion to go co-op & bring together their skills in the strategy industry, bringing in a hit rts game with the culmination of all the strategical elements of the ground control series. Gameplay mechanics are one of the most challenging questions out there. I personally would love to see a GC3 with the incorporation of all 3 playstyles that massive used in their games, but with a unique tweak or twist here & there. There should also be at least 2 modes to accomodate player preferences such as basebuilding, or at least partially, to a limited resource or such. Massive over there has a bunch of geniuses to work it out better than my feeble little brain. Im pretty sure rebellion has some excellent ideas up their sleeves too.
