From what I've seen, Rugby Challenge 4 is looking really promising, and what's more, your feedback and responses to us as rugby gaming fans are really encouraging! Thank you for your dedication and promise to making a rugby game to remember - the best in years! I would like to talk about the leagues currently in the game:
I love the fact that you've added competitions like the Currie Cup along with the major ones like the Premiership and Super Rugby. They serve as a staple and are obviously the fan favourites in the game (here's to hoping that you could fully licence the super rugby). It would be awesome to get more European licences like the Pro 14 or Top 14, but I understand that licensing agreements might play a significant role in us seeing them in Rugby Challenge 4. I can, however, only hope that you're working on getting access to the ITM cup and the NRC.
But I'm actually here to argue for adding the American Major League Rugby competition and/or even the Japanese Top League. Having these in the game could really help the game grow in the US and Japan which are major potential untapped markets (from a sales and rugby perspective). This could introduce millions of existing fans to rugby on the other side of the world and really set this game apart from ALL PREVIOUS RUGBY GAMES IN HISTORY. This will most definitely help by bumping up viewership numbers in these leagues' respective countries (which are massive in terms of population and are hubs of rapid rugby union growth), growing the overall rugby gaming market and not to mention, an increase in sales. PLEASE consider this: this really is the best way of growing rugby and rugby gaming in general and thus sales and income.
Go ahead and ask your fans how many people have come to fall in love with rugby due to them playing some sort of rugby video game, and I can tell you that of 90% of people under 30 will confirm this.
Thanks for all that you are doing and I hope that you can prove to those who are hopeful and those that have lost hope, that you are in this to be the best that you can and serving the rugby gaming world.😊
