LOL this actually a thing



I hate calling this a "sport", does this mean these guys are athletes? Just something that really annoys me how anything that is competitive ends up being named a sport!

Dude they were playing for $100,000 and both the players and commentators do this for a living.

They are e-athletes.

this part of my post is a reply to this thread:

I haven't watched any esports for a long time. When I watched some, it was fun. Also competing in this kind of events is pure awesomeness.

I'm on my university's Collegiate Star League team. We're playing for $180,000 in prizes. I mean, we have no chance and specifically I'm not even close to good, but competing is awesome.

Especially if you get to kick some superior clan's ass in a match. That is.. gahh, need more. Too bad that my reflexes aren't what they were 10 years ago. :P

Go esports. I've spent $200 on SC2 tournaments this year, far more than I spent on video games.

How can that be? Is that on hardware, entry fees or what?

Are you there as an athlete or as a viewer?

They are not athletes of any sort. Are they the best at what they do? Hell yea. Its like calling the best checkers player an athlete. The vids of the competitions are pretty neat to watch though, its definately very intense and competitive.
