  1. It’s gonna be weird having an esports tournament without people talking normally on voicechat and instead shouting so everyone can hear them

    1. It´s a live tournament, not online…… they probably will play together in a single room/place.

      1. His comment was about esports and how they usually use headsets to communicate because tournaments are so loud, not you playing with your little friends via Skype you dumb ass

      1. We get that you use your miserable waste of a life only to troll while the people on this site just post comments, but you have to admit that what I said was true.. Unless you lived under a rock and never lived a life.

    1. Nintendo is not running the tournament but a other company is. Also it is a Puzzle and Dragon tournament too, which is very huge in Japan.

      1. AND the winner doesnt get a million dollars, it is a million across all 40 events. That also means semifinalists will get a cut too.

        Jesus I wonder if sickrs first language is English. He can’t even copy and paste an article without fucking it up.

    2. Troll your mum goes to GAME to get you GTA5 and you think your mature ??? haha…

      Splatoon is at esports so it’s clearly for Adults mate oh and 1 million dollars in prize money wow,games don’t make it to esports unless there competitive end of and kids games are not competitive.

      1. Rly? I apologise for that Commander. I know you’re a robot so you may not understand fear. Fear is natural for soldiers like me. But, that doesn’t mean I can’t beat those Japanese soldiers ;)
