I’ve seen a lot of news lately about VR competitions and I want to know your thoughts about it because a lot of people are debating whether VR should be part of competitions as some people say it is a fad and some are not sure if it will take off. I personally think that VR competitions are a new step for us gamers, it will broaden our skills with virtual reality aside from AI battles. VR Fest, world’s largest virtual reality festival, always held this massive festival for everyone to watch Virtual Reality streamers compete with each other then The World Cyber Games established Final Assault (VR RTS game) as their first new horizons to give players a new and unique environment to play in. Although the classic consoles are PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Wii, and Mobile Phones… we can give this one a try, right? It would be funny if they are competing but the game is too realistic and someone ended up going outside without anyone noticing him 🤣
OG lost to the OpenAI Five bots team with a score of 0-2 in an exhibition match. On the second map, the International 2018 champions were defeated in less than 20 minutes. Both teams picked heroes from a limited hero pool. Unlike previous show matches, OG was permitted to use invisibility, and the OpenAI Five courier was not invulnerable. At the same time, illusions and summoned unit were not allowed. This is excellent news for AI enthusiasts. The state of AI development is getting better to the point that they could even defeat the champions of a complicated game. In other news, the World Cyber Games has an upcoming AI robot football tournament. Interested programmers will have the chance to showcase their programming skills and compete against other AI robot programmers. More details about the AI competition here.

For those who haven't watched this documentary, Beyond the Game follows the journey of professional Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne players as they compete in the 2007 World Cyber Games in Seattle, Washington. Three well-known Warcraft III players (namely Grubby, MaDFroG, and Sky) were the main focus of this documentary. One of the biggest struggles in the film is the conflict between a player reclaiming his world title and another player defending his valued world title.
