TM² Stadium at the ESWC + first worldwide VR competition!

Post by Cerovan » 16 Jun 2015, 18:34

Great news Trackmania fans!

First, as you may know, we have a long history with the ESWC and we are now pleased to confirm that Trackmania² Stadium is an official discipline of the ESWC this year!

And second but not the last... there'll be the first worldwide VR eSport competition thanks to the ESWC, a VR headset and the MMOne chair, a chair designed for the VR which moves at 720° along 3 axes. It'll be crazy, we can't wait to see how the participants will handle this new parameter :-D

Is this VR competition replacing the normal one, or is it a side-event? The announcement can be interpreted both ways.

Wrong move to have the VR competition replace the normal one ...

Well, I don't think that's a good idea.

It would be fun for some time, but im pretty sure it will take some time to get used to it.
Its also not comfortable and may delay the reflexes needed to make those great times.

I've heard latency is quite a problem with VR. It doesn't sound like it's a good fit for competitive gaming. I mean, I'm not gonna diss this before I see how it goes, but my guts tell me this is not the right move.

The trouble here is more that you judge quickly. Once you see and understand, then make the critics in a balance way :thumbsup:

Of course it's an additionnal competition and it does not replace the previous one. Maybe there is something not clear enough, but your reaction is a good caricature of what I was saying on the other post. I think people need to understand first, even if I express myself badly :mrgreen:

No, the trouble here is that you guys provide incorrect or insufficient information, making it very hard to be critical in a balanced way.

The official Twitter says it will replace the normal TM tournament, so what is it now?
