Not Just a Game
Hey Gamers! Can you imagine playing a video game with your teammates and against your enemies on a big stage for true glory? I know you can, because I am a gamer too, and that is what E-sports are all about.
E-sports or “Electronic Sports” is used as a general term to describe the play of video games competitively. Most commonly E-Sports take the form of organized multi-player video game competitions. Professional E-Sports is growing exponentially, as you can see there are more and more organizations in different countries, such as US, Europe, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, all with fully-developed ranking system in place.
Currently, many tournaments such as the League of Legends World Championship, or the Battle.net World Championship Series offer prize money and attractive salaries to participants.
In 2015, South Korea's “SK Telecom T1” won the LoL World Championship, and claimed a cool US$1 million in prize. Tournaments are often broadcasted live with running commentary by professional commentators via Twitch or YouTube live.
Professional gaming is not easy, you need skills and practice. Teamwork is also im-portant, but so is your gaming equipment, much like a solider with his gun and ammo. You can’t win if not properly equipped. “What is a workman without his tools” right?
