"As promised"? When was the last time they actually promised pvp related things? The S4 repurposed FE pvp map?

On the other hand, one of them did talk about dreams of tournaments with real money prizes. And what's better then to give out real money prizes that people have to pay money for to have a chance?

Cryptic obviously doesn't care for a balanced esports-style approach or they would not have let balance deteriorate as much as they did. But they might be greedy enough to go into full golden bullet mode and then do tournaments with actual prizes to draw players in and essentially make them buy true p2w consumables to have a shot at winning.

(Not just accuracy weed, jevonite and team batteries. Think big. Think boff abilities with limited charges, and obviously weapons with limited charges, too.)

On the other hand the pvp population seems to be too small right now for this to be worth the development time.
