I know it isn't labeled a MOBA, but it looks like some sort of hybrid. How do you think a game like this would do in the world of e-sports?

(copy/pasted from here (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1347592-Possibility-for-Esports?))

There were threads shortly after the announcement (here (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1176027-Does-anyone-see-For-Honor-as-a-potential-e-sport?) and here (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1205590-E-SPORTS-Tournaments!?)) that were asking about esports.

Generally, the proposition was overwhelmingly positive---I think it would be a very engaging and entertaining game to watch competitively, myself---but it was also pointed out that whether or not it becomes an esport has little to do with the devs and more to do with the player base being large enough, and vocal enough, to facilitate it.

It all depends on what the community wants and how the game takes off after launch.
