I'm not saying the ASB league is that, but in order for me to be really interested, its got to have a storyline and a background. A battle without a storyline is just mindless fighting, which is why I lost interest in the URPG and never returned. To me, I see the ASB league like the URPG, just with a different layout and format. It may be thrilling for a few seconds, but its easy to get bored of it. However, if there's a strong storyline behind it and all the characters involved have a rich storyline surrounding them, it makes it much easier to appreciate the battle.
Second, and for the same reason I stopped the URPG, I have a long list of other things I'd rather spend my time on. Stuff like RP, graphic art work, XBox 360, writing, and so on.
