    Competitive games are the most eligible for E-Sports, especially well balanced ones without pay2win. Mabinogi is not this to any extent, nor is PVP its main focus.

    So....no. This is not limited to just Mabinogi, so why is it in Mabinogi discussion?

    Our Shadow Missions, dungeons, raids, and the like, are not designed as a PvP competition. They are usually made of parties and individuals trying to achieve the same goal. If they were designed like a race or some combative campaign against another party then it could be competitive. Although the game does allow for PvP it is not really the sole purpose of playing Mabinogi, it's collecting wings.

    At one time in Mabinogi's history there was massive raid against guilds and parties made of Paladins and Dark Knights:

    I don't see any nexon game elegible to be an e-sport. E-sports are games where players (single player or groups) compete with others to see who is better, but this can't be applied when pay2win items are in the game (end-game weapons and gear) but they are only based on how good you became as a human being (playing that game) and not as a paying player.

    [Maybe Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies, First Assault, Combat Arms: Reload and Duel of Summoners - but all of them can miss one or more points about the min. requirements to be an e-sport: no pay2win, a lot of players, official international tournaments made by Nexon]

    the original system was almost perfect for an e-sport (melee, range and magics), it just needed a few changes like more ways to counter magics and range, the one we have right now is not good at all and i dont think nexon have the balls to actually revamp pvp and get rid of the entire reforge system and some talents like gunner.

    I can't see any type or form of esport potential from Mabinogi at all. There is just no entertainment value in any competitive aspect Mabi has.

    But, meh. Only esport I ever watch is Overwatch.
