The hype surrounding esports is already being felt in the real world.
We’ve been watching the rise of League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for some time now, and now we’re seeing teams and players competing across the world, from North America and Europe to the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
As with many esports events, the stakes are high, but we’ve never seen anything like the excitement around the League of Legend and Counter Strike: Global Open finals, which will be held at BlizzCon on June 15-16.
This weekend’s esports championship will see teams compete for the $1.5 million prize pool, which is the largest prize pool for a major esports event ever, with the largest ever in esports history.
So what’s the deal?
What is esports, and what are the major players in it?
To answer these questions, we talked to five of the most prominent esports players on the planet, who spoke with us on the phone to discuss the latest developments in esports, the esports industry, and the future of the gaming industry.
It’s all about competitive gaming and video games. “
Esports is the new sports and entertainment, which are dominated by the online gaming.
It’s all about competitive gaming and video games.
The concept is that you play games online and get to compete in online tournaments with real people.
It has to be competitive in order to get paid.
The tournaments are streamed online.
The prize money is a lot smaller than the NFL or MLB.”
—Morten “TobiWan” Lindgren, former League of Legendary player and esports broadcaster”There’s a big difference between eSports and sports.
There’s a difference between a game that’s really fun to play and one that’s fun to watch and play.
For esports, it’s a much bigger game than that.”
—Tobi Wan Lindgren”I was born and raised in Sweden, but I grew up in the U.S. and I’m an American.
It wasn’t really until I was in my late 20s that I began to really notice esports.
I started watching it on TV and I thought, I’m gonna watch it.”
—Chris “Chad” Hays, former Counter-Proter “I think esports is a fantastic sport, and I think there are millions of fans out there.
There are a lot of great teams out there, and it’s really exciting.
The people who are involved are all passionate about the sport, so it’s not a big problem.”
—Benjamin “bomber” Housley, former Overwatch League player and current Overwatch player and coach “We’re in the middle of an esports renaissance.
It just started a couple of years ago, and we’re only just getting started.
Esports has been around for a long time, and for some people, it may have been just a hobby, but there’s a lot going on in the world of esports.
The fans are really passionate about it, and they’re just looking for new experiences.
It also offers a lot for the business side, because you’re competing with thousands of people, and that’s how you get paid for it.
I’m really excited about esports.”
—Landon “nades” Cervantes, former CS:GO pro and current esports commentator”I don’t think there’s any question that esports is huge in the United States.
I think it’s the number one sport in the country.
There aren’t many sports that have more fans in the US than esports.
We’re starting to see more and more teams come out of nowhere, and you’ll see a lot more companies start taking esports seriously.
There is a massive amount of interest in esports in the States, and more companies are jumping on the bandwagon, like Valve, Blizzard, and others.
It makes sense for them to invest in esports.
It seems like the demand for esports is skyrocketing, and a lot is going on with it.”—Kurtis “KurtJ” Gudmundsson, former eSports player and Counterstrike: Global Offense player “There’s not much difference between the two sports.
They’re both sports that you compete in, but the focus is entirely different.
Esports is the game that is being played, and esports has been going on for a while.
We don’t see too many major sports companies trying to do business with esports.
They’ll try to market the game, but it’s always a very niche thing.
There hasn’t been a lot really big money made from the game.
I would imagine there’s probably only a small percentage of esports fans in North America, but that’s the way it is in the rest of the world.
I’ve been in esports for about 10 years now, so I know what it’s like.
There have been some very, very successful tournaments, and in some cases, even bigger tournaments.
It is a new sport in some places, but
