NCSoft has been working on its support plans for the free-to-play MMO Blade & Soul. In order to make the game's PvP more community and tournament friendly, the development team has been working on separating the game's spectator features from the development tools required to run the game. This change makes the community's ability to broadcast competitive events and tournaments easier.

In addition to making spectator mode easier to use, NCSoft is also planning on focusing on community tournaments for the rest of the year while they work toward the 2017 World Championship. NCSoft will be officially sponsoring community-run tournaments by Imperial (focusing on North American players) and Legion (for those in Europe.) The semifinals and Grand Finals for both will be streamed live on the Blade & Soul Twitch channel and in-game via Blade & Soul TV.

More information on NCSoft's plans for competitive play can be read on the game's site.

I don't know if this would be something that would draw me back to this game but I always wanted to play an MMO that had ingame world wide tournaments. I also like pvping the games I've played the pvp is just horrible but they are last generation games that the indie dev company I mostly been at has a lack of focus on their games. Their latest game is actually cool but their lack of focus on what the game should be will ruin it like the pvp system most likely but what should I know it's only going into open beta but due to their back history with their previous games it's just iffy. But I haven't played blade of soul since day 1 due to the launch day issues but I just wasn't into the game for various of reasons but maybe in 2017 this could make me come back or it might not who knows but it probably won't since life comes first.
