IGN ESports GM David Ting Explains Why League Of Legends Fans Dominate IPL 5

Approximately 5,000 fans of eSports have traveled to Las Vegas to watch four days of live pro gaming events at The Cosmpolitan Hotel and Casino. IGN Pro League 5 (IPL 5) marks the start-up league’s first foray into fighting games, having signed exclusive eSports deals with Capcom for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition and Street Fighter X Tekken and Tecmo Koei for Dead or Alive 5. David Ting, general manager of eSports for IGN Entertainment and founder of the IPL, talks about the growth potential for eSports in 2013 and explains why Call of Duty: Black Ops II may not be in the competitive picture in this exclusive interview.
