My main, an assassin, is kind of broken due to the changes on the PTS. Wish I'd have had something earlier done...

Some people are happy with just watching games, this it what makes e-sports work... and of course real sports too!

I think it is good idea from BioWare, I really hope they will go more into the e-sport direction in the future. Sure, plenty of balancing needed and without a doubt a spectator mode. I would like if BioWare would make more huttball like maps and give those maps a separate ranked queue for a huttball league which people could watch, but currently it seems like they are going into the other direction and killing Gilds that have 8-men PvP teams for warzones.

When you play the game of PvP, you win or you die.

Is there any chance that in the rules it will expand to allow people who use OBS to apply? I have been a PVP healer for a long time and wanted to show the live gameplay in full HD from that perspective. I would love to apply and get together a team of dedicated players on the PTS but with the way Xsplit runs maxing out processors like crazy I would most likely never be able to use that without killing my Phenom II X6 1100T(not a shabby processor) even with the watercooling Corsair H70 radiator. I can't afford a new processor and would be terrified to really risk it and overclock it just to run Xsplit when OBS runs soooo well. I can run OBS Full 1080P Bitrate-5000 (but since I am not sponsored I ramp it down so people can view it even while they play so lowered it to 3000-Bitrate) Is there any way maybe people can apply as shout-casters? or apply with their live footage of non PTS PVP videos?

-BTW I do wish I could use Xsplit and I do wish it ran better It would be cool to Day9 stuff and use green screen behind me... would be SICK!!! I would definitely run video of random SWToR characters or scenery behind myself (Sitting in the cantina to name one idea)

Check out the stream for the workforce block of PVP Mon-Wed & Fri 11AM- 4PM Eastern, Sun-Wed & Fri-Sat 7PM-Midnight Eastern!!! All music played on stream is original music written/recorded by my brother or myself.

Stop by The Y.B.C.

Probably because their are some ppl that might threaten the devs. This is a security measure, in my mind. Other than that, their is no reason.

Not that I really care, but I think it is kind of funny PvE gets messed up/step childed for PvP problems and now they are even doing it for PR promotions. That is EAware Star WoW for you.
