1st of descibed concept is not new and already got some analogs.
Found ESR community forum best place to describe in a brief my futuristic but mb interesting idea :-) Cause on ESR are the most progressive, open-minded, active nerds, youngsters and big ballers community ever. Best gaming, non stoping, wanking bunny hoping rabbits, very smart and high educated individuals.
What is described below are related to whole competitive gaming or so called cybersport, e-sport. It is about decentralization, bitcoin and brand new vision to old things. It is just short memo but worth a big article with history, theory etc. It's not unique but kinda words not spoken.
------histrory/theory/conspiracy (!content warning! pass this part you can feel sick)
Let's take modern e-sport history from twitch tv times, casters, big tournaments, big games. 90% of players playing just for fun, ye ye players know how to jerk a mouse and keyboard decent part of theirs damn lifes with visual interaction they see on the screen, so most action take place in da brains, like interactive sweet motion fantacy, at 1st glance looks like kinda cyberpunk stuff)
Gaming is similar to real mastrubation and is an addition/substitition to this, just another form of mastrubation, kinda safe/indirect form. It is researched by smart BIG people, books written etc, if you disagree just deal with it. This forum is not a place for detail descibtion of such 'deep, dark' psy/ conspircy things. But in a brief. No talks about who is Carmac and why quake are full of some 'devil textures', why Carmac gone to research wanking helmet hardware/software, why LOL/DOTA sponsors are porntubes, why oldgames and games are not supported anymore.
So 90% of players are just for fun players - yes it's ok and kinda normal. But addiction to gaming is powered by some 'unconsciousness impulses', engine is youngster 'sexuality' (libido, hormones, complex things ) and competitive games are developed in special way, saying it without 'psy' things is like..in special way then outcome of a match, battle is very unpredictable and it is similar to real gambling then u place a bet and get excited of a win and loose, whatever hormones/psy mechanic used and you playing more and more. Look at large cut of stats of team play based games, you'll see aproximated 50% wins and 50% looses and you will never be sure of match result till last second - that how modern games are developed.
Also moden online games are kinda substitution (projection) of real life success absence/failure so that why people who play games called tards, nerds etc. But better play games for fun while you are young instead of going to streets and fighing for you slave rights, its like 'utilization' of our energy, 24h wank a mouse, fight with monsters, repeating devils texture more and more untill full unsatisfaction. Thats is conspiracy part, yes not all words spoken....on public but that is enough to catch idea
Ok, there is like 2 ways of playing modern competitive games
FOR fun and like a pro with sponsorts, tournament, money prizes, casting, fun sector etc attributes. Important thing is that you can get money only from sposnors ie centralized. So called pro playing is depended on sponsors who are just figuratively speaking 'jew-mascons' companies with their OWN interests.
It's like you are a bitch and you income depends only from P.I.M.P rest of the time you just sucking rockets :-) for fun! Can you be described as pro bitch, the answer is - "no', you just kinda slave and regardless how good you are in sucking, you cannot get benefit from it. Can Cooller or someone else get more benefit from his wins more then just fun, may be yes if someone deside to make a tournament..on old game..i dont know....how to monetize Cooller skills? I dont know..just play for fun) But got some idea/teknology that can change it) if it will be accepted and realized.
If you are playing really good, you have talant, train well, got xp or just smoke damn kushy kush before online/lan matches like Cypher/Avek/Cooller/Rapha etc did. You can get benefit from you everyday play, you do moneytized you addiction/hobby, but those people are like 1% and industry use only new games, new trends, new players of certain game generation - big brother pay only big brothers games, community, tournaments. Nobody needs quake, cause its old and community are old)
---The idea itself
Imagine you are pro sportsman or pro team of damn pro uber railers) Imagine the game is damn good no matter who developed it, how old it is, gfx etc just good game for e-sport. What you will do? Wait for sponsors or start for fun...Now imagine gambling nerd - addicted of 'adrenaline' of wining or loosing his money (form of energy), He place a bet and rely ONLY ON LUCK, CHANCE. Gambling nerd cannot AFFECT on result directly or even indirectly - wheel just rotating its totally random.
Now imagine a cybershamanic sportsman and gambling approach. You play match/ tournament/ league and invest small amount of money..lets imagine teamplay of some 12v12 game like BF or ETQW or even QL (not matter of stupid mechanic)
and invest small amount of money into you match, its like a bet but you/team can affect on outcome, you are responsable for result, you playing serious, better and its 100 times more exiting (main point)..you can loose you bet or double it or take the whole tournament prize
For those of you who thinging right now (wtf, i will never invest money in this - its just no fun,its just a game. i'm not a gambler..yes you are not, you are super shamanic cyber sportsmen and you earned some small money using you skills instead of playing for fun...)
Imagine you are Agent and working hard on russian car factory doing robotic stuff whole week or just euro unemployed individual with small income or pocket money) You want to relax on Sunday, smoke some kush or drink gozhelka (vodka) add $5-10 to tournament (inside safe, secured, decentalized bitcoin based, not gov regulation, prooven gaming-gambling system) is you chance to get fun playing + earn at smallest double money or more.
Is it better instead playing for fun or rely on sponsors, is it for adults? is it serious, more then. You can play any game even those who not anymore supported for 'some reason'. Games can be more interesting, more exiting cause its very close to real things.
I dont like gambling and never bet money on something, but gambling then you are fully involved and responsable for outcome is much better, its is sport without sponsors...It is way of free people)
I would not descibe tech aspect detail of such e-sport system but in can be real competetor to real gambling and someone want to regulate/tax it. Bitcon, blockchain and modern technologies is your friend my dear. Think about income of such e-sport casinos (dont like this word) and their %'s?
One more time such private e-sport casinos already exist but not developed well or are just developing right now.
For you shamanic haters and lovers i can recommend best and last Carmacs quake creation ever, it's a pity not seen it being younger) It called ETQW - yes best developed and designed team-class-based fps game ever made. So i write this concept ('idea') inspired by brilliant teamplay game, combining best from TF's, ET, all versions of quake, BF's and more
Quake are just too way old and outdated, simple robotic gameplay even in tdm. It was good for all time. But i think e-sport+gambling concept desribed here can be applied to any game.
Thanks for reading, no i released my brain)
