Why have a tournament with an unfinished product?


Not sure if this has been brought up but with SOE live a few weeks away I have to ask why SOE is having this big tournament with cash prizes for a game that is not even out of beta yet?

I'm going to have to guess for publicity.

Thanks for that Basti :P

I can see the marketing/publicity being a really good thing. But it still seems that a contest for cash on an unfinished game is a bit risky. Unless they plan to have a lot of things fixed in two weeks? Perhaps this is the next milestone?

It sure is SOE's event, it is named after them. Even if another company of group was actually organizing it, SOE is promoting it.

Miir I thought the same thing. Id expect some kind of announcement at SOE live, I'm hoping the next beta build. We still haven't touched over half the weapons in the game

Why is it a problem if they run a challenge with the game as is? Yeah, it's not finished. I don't see this as an issue.

First, you have to answer. Why not?

As long as they don't focus too much attention on esports with 6v6 or 12v12 matches all the power to them.

Ok... mind you these are my opinions.

If I wanted my game to be taken seriously on the eSports/competitive scene I would likely want any event to have some legitimacy. Having an unfinished product takes away from that legitimacy by allowing current game issues to potentially affect the outcome of the competition. Since there is money involved people are going to be even more concerned that they are really getting a fair chance to win. That's why I would not do it on an unfinished product.

In the end it is their money and their reputation on the line not mine.

I was just surprised no one has brought this up yet.
