YES! It will turn a Casual/core community into a Ultra Hardcore Competitive community.

Global Ranking mean a LOT in the PC Gaming Community as Million of dollars in Endorsement deals are on th line once a game becomes an eSPort.

Firefall went from a fun FPS/TPS-MMO to an Elite Level Frag fest once it became an esport. I still play it from tie to time but man oh man some serious competition in the PvP realm.

needs to get out of Beta though oh and pay out that $1 million dollar prize to the winners.
