DOFUS eSport: Changes Coming in 2019

AnkaTracker Announcements

After two years of the same DOFUS World Series format, the competitive format of the game will take a new direction in 2019.

The DWS – Summer Edition 2018 final took place a few weeks ago at Paris Games Week, where the players of team Out of Control scored first in this 3rd year of the competition, breaking the two-year streak held by GamersOrigin. Taking stock of the year as November rolled in, 2018 proved to be full of eSport competitions and events.

Over the last several weeks, we've been taking a comprehensive look at the competitive system used in DOFUS for the last two years, and significant changes are expected in 2019.

Although the details of the new system are subject to change and must be mulled over in-house before being revealed, we can announce that the DOFUS World Series format, as it existed in 2018, will no longer be in use next year. This format has allowed us to witness some epic matches over the three years the tournament has run so far, and it will remain an important milestone in the history of DOFUS competitions.

But the end of DWS doesn't mean the end of competitive play in DOFUS, and we'll catch up with you again in January to explain how the new competitive system will work in 2019!

They really need to implement a few changes to truly make Dofus be ESport viable. Right now, only the few elite who spent years and money are interested, which gives the impression that Dofus ESport are only for the few and not for the best tactical players. ESport athlete looking in thru the windows will not bother coming in, after they see just how skewed the Dofus ESport is against new but professional players..

Right now, what we have is not ESport but a glorified rewards system for the privileged few.

@Gunnerwolfang I would argue that it's less about who has the most money and more about who's playing the class with the most broken mechanics in pvp. A lot of the mechanics that make the game fun in PVM are extremely unbalanced in PVP. For Dofus to be Esport viable, there should be some more counter-play available to being swapped across the map, reduced to 2 ap or 1 turned in a 3v3 PVP environment.

That is less of a factor because anyone, even new player who wants to compete professionally, can choose any class in the game. It will just be a matter of knowing which is the meta classes. And even if you mess up choosing a class, you can easily change class using free in-game option and paid class change. 

Have you ever heard of the saying, "If you can't beat them, join them". It only takes little effort to change class, and if a professional ESport Athlete would do his research, he do not even need to change class because he can opt to choose the broken class.
