We need private matches that is a #1.This would be an E-Sports HIT if we just had the support! It would alos help for its longevity, and the life of the game. As for e-spaorts, its free promotion so people in the competitve community will buy the game . It would also attract more Youtubers!
No, private matches won't be enough for community, there seems to be no spectator mode, no API for your profile or any kind of sort of investigating of other players.
There also seems to be no work on clans or a proper matchmaking, as a tweet has confirmed that when they speak about matchmaking the mean private lobbies..... like wtf?
This game seems to be overall balanced which means it has e-sport capabilities, but it doesn't seem to support it by any way, and that is such a shame...
