    I love video games, but I don't think I could ever be a pro gamer. Not just because of my average skill level, but I don't want to be forced to play something for 8-10hrs a day, 5 days a week. That would make even my favorite of games become boring make me not want to play it anymore. I don't ever want to reach that point that I no longer play for my own amusement. Maybe people who are ultra competitive fair better, but I play for fun, not sport.

    I finally come across a game that I am skilled enough to play professionally(ie: World in Conflict) and it's popularity nose-dives currently eliminating all chances for pro-WiC players. As for this arena, it sounds like a good idea, but I cannot help but feel this is some how going to 'cheat' the system so this business can create pros.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for a rise in WiC popularity once the expansion, XB360 and PS3 versions are released.

    I can see this leading to many in the local student population skipping classes to play at this facility. Before you know it, those same students fail their classes because they are spending all their time at the arena. Even if you are damn good at gaming, you are better off completing your education and getting a real job.

    I don't have a problem with someone working hard at something they enjoy and then make a living out of it. If logic serves me right, that's the lifestyle that we, ourselves, are trying to achieve.

    pro gamers are pussies who spend hours exploiting everything in the game mechanics they can in their favour in an endless attempt to dominate at one game :yawn: try enjoying yourselves for a bit will you?

    There are sooooo many out there I don`t think I could dedicate myself to 1 so much that I can`t take time to enjoy them all.
