A: We plan to create and host a variety of tournaments, challenges, and official MWO league. At this time we are not sanctioning or encouraging players to create independent leagues.
All in all, though, I think this game is doing far better than so many skeptics are saying. It hasn't been ruined and PGI is doing a fine job considering the task. I would have wanted something more like MW: Living Legends (a larger, more Battlefield-esque game environment), but I feel like the current model is suited fine for the wider audience (although that whole MW:LL ceasing development fiasco is a shame).
