Why Anime PvP Games Cannot Make Esports Leagues

#1
Over the past few years, anime PvP games have exploded in popularity, especially in South Korea, where the genre originated. The genre's massive popularity has attracted investors pushing to establish an esports scene for these games.
Still, those trying to make esports leagues are misguided and will likely waste millions of dollars on something that will never be financially viable. Below you'll find five reasons why anime PvP games cannot make esports leagues successful and help grow the industry.



Are anime games suitable for esports?

Anime PvP games are challenging to enter into esports because of the vast number of players and their high skill levels.
The more players there are, the higher chance you'll have to find someone better than you. If you play an anime game with only a few people, then it's unlikely that you'll come across someone more skilled than you.
However, if enough people are playing the game and they're all at your skill level or below, it becomes viable for esports.

Does an anime game need the backing of a video game company?

The video game industry has been evolving for decades. As the internet became more widespread, software piracy and illegal downloads began to affect the industry's bottom line. This led to video game companies relying on microtransactions for profitability.
The video game industry is now at a crossroads of sorts, as the rise of esports is putting pressure on studios to focus on producing more spectator-friendly games.

Do players have the time to commit to this?

A key question is a how much time players would be required to commit to a PvP League. There are a lot of anime PvP games out there, and they all require different amounts of time and skill. For example, some games are free-to-play, but others need players to buy in-game currency with money, which means that it would take a lot more commitment from the player for their team to succeed. Some games have quests, while others have quests and instances (dungeons). Most importantly, many of these titles feature limitations on classes or characters.

What are the obstacles?

The main obstacle that Anime PvP games cannot make esports leagues is the lack of competitive depth. Due to the nature of these games, they are not conducive to high-level play, so there is no point in investing money in them.
The other major obstacle is the community. With so many multiplayer games out there, it is hard for players to support themselves in anime PvP games because they are not very popular.

What can be done about it?

PvP games are few and far between in the world of esports, as they are not enjoyable to watch. As such, it is hard for these games to find a way into professional play. One way that this could be remedied is if there was a way for more people to enjoy watching them. For example, if there were more anime-style graphics or the game had an RTS feel.

A call to action

As the esports industry continues to grow, a new genre of games will inevitably start to make waves as well. However, this does not mean that all games can be included. The gaming community is finally welcoming some popular genres like fighting and MOBA with open arms, but many are still left out. One of these genres is Anime RPGs or anime-style player vs. players (PvP) games such as Super Mecha Champions, Omega Strikers, and Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker.

As to Revolt proj, then I guess your point is that you are looking for an alternative to discord due to security concerns. hm but I think anyways DIscord provides high-level of security though, as it now requires you to connect your phone to account in order to log in.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Well, I don't have much about medical knowledge, so I don't know how to answer, but I think health is important and I hope that you and the people around you maintain healthy.

Revolt project looks pretty much set to be the perfect encrypted and open source discord alternative, i say we set a precedent by setting up the official server there

As to why Revolt Project, well. there have been privacy and data worries about discord in the recent years or so

Sorry i've been dealing with someone with apnea over the past few months, but ugh. hopefully things will get better

Alright, the apneic guy i'm with now has a Airsense 10 Auto (nasal)set CPAP. I'm just relieved to not listen to that guy having severe OSA 45+ AHI events choking and snorting themselves into heart failure or a stroke. Minimum pressure 6.8. max pressure 20. Going to also test it on myself to see what these apneic people have to deal with as well. The mask and machine noises will definitely take some getting used to (It actually sounds like a big dog or cat or a cheetah quietly breathing in sleep), but I can't wait to see the results after this guy gets a full night's sleep. Things are finally looking up after a very long time. With this my constant rage and anxiety attacks (part of the reason i've been down these past few months) are also starting to drop off from hopefully not talking to a forgetful, demented-like idiot now that they'll hopefully start remember things (and generally be more interesting to talk to rather than annoying) and with it i'm starting to regain the will to resume my hiatused projects
