What type of game do you think is currently missing in eSports competitions?

A 1v1 FPS Game, I actually designed one. I think Quakers r a little bored with Quake overall and we need fresh blood (new players), but we wont get it due to the game play being quite old.
I designed a new FPS duel game called "Reborn" its meant to play like quake with a more advanced movement and weapon system, with integrated tournament system, ladders, tour UI and a whole bunch of competitive features I helped implement into Bloodline Champions. I have a meeting with an investor to raise 2.5 mill, I could get the whole game done in 2 years tops, which would still beat quake 5 by 3 years i'm guessing.
One can dream
...he continued to support BLC including securing a $15,000 tournament at DreamHack. He then made an attempt at raising 2.5million dollars to fund an "esport game". He spoke to an investor and they were interested but not in doing a small project (they wanted to invest 100million dollars) and making the game an MMO. He ended up trying to cut costs and make the game using only a quarter of a million dollars. The game was set to be called "Reborn" and would have been free to play with a pay element to buy maps beyond the original maps developed by community members (the incentive being that the creator could make money from the map) and other non-intrusive non-"pay to win" pay measures. The project was paused while he built up his "GD studio"
what does he have to gain by ripping everyone off?
