I just talked to Hexum about that last night. The first season winners were sent out SCUF controllers and customized dog tags. I don't think any reward for season 2 is set in stone, and season 3 has a $500 pot. Why is it hard to take the league seriously? Have you watched the streams or anything like that? They take it very seriously and commentate on it like a pro game. It's very fun to watch and gets crazy amounts of viewers for a SOCOM stream. The end goal is to foster a competitive environment for the players that still want that kind of play. www.socomEsports.com is the new SOCOMbattles and there are a shit ton of people interested in this. Anything to get more activity and more people playing SOCOM is cool by me. The whiffle ball league is starting in a few weeks on Sundays, for the players that want to eSeal but a little less seriously. eSEALs will be the NFL of SOCOM XLINK, Sunday will be the Arena/Lingerie League, and the pubs will effectively be the backyard. I don't personally have interest in playing anything other than some good ol' backyard SOCOM, but if other dudes wanna take it seriously, more power to 'em.
