League of Legends Reality Show To Air In Australia

There's a reality TV show for just about everything these days -- so why not one for League of Legends? Australia will be getting one soon, inviting 40 players to duke it out for the chance to win $10,000 and a contract with one of Australia's biggest esports teams.

There's not much info on the website for The Next Gamer, except for the promotional flier listed below. Contestants will compete daily in "mental fortitude, physical fitness, and teamwork" challenges. If there's not a cosplay competition, I'll be disappointed.

The five players who survive the week will take on the top Oceania gaming teams -- yet oddly, only one player will walk out with the top prize. You'd think that might be a disincentive to team play, depending on how exactly it's determined who is the best player out of a group of five. Then again, considering the amount of backstabbing that typically goes on in a reality TV show, maybe that's intentional.

jesus christ there's no need for it the game itself is just to play no need to have a reality live show there's already pieces of worthless trash in the game and player matchmaking balance is shitty and terrible you go to play a rank there's some gold then theres bronze who doesnt even know how to play and decides to go rank makes it even worse if that's the thing they want to talk about it would be more interesting considering developers and admins doesnt give a shit to ban bad players from rank(not from the game but ban from rank only and temporarily till they are good enough from the days they are banned for)the e=sports is already good enough entertainment but a reality show? it's either they are desperate for money or they just have a shitty idea.
