Q: Can you talk about tournament mode at all? Why was it scrapped?
A: We liked the idea about it, but we didn't have an implementation that was both like relatively easy to do and would hit a lot of player desires.
What?? Isn't china server literally playtesting a tournament mode right now? I does seem to hit a lot of player desires and it would be relatively easy to take something that's already done. Unless it was developed by Netease and they're not letting Blizzard use it internationally?
