With Riot Games in the midst of Season Three of its League of Legends Championship Series, Team SoloMid (TSM) is in the hunt for the big prize. The pro gaming team was at sponsor Qualcomm’s booth during GDC 2013 in San Francisco to check out the latest Snapdragon gaming technology. Qualcom has banked on the success that TSM Snapdragon has had in eSports in an attempt to expose its brand to the huge number of gamers who watch live tournaments like Major League Gaming (MLG) and European Sports League (ESL) as well as streams through outlets like Twitch and CBS Interactive.
TSM has a growing global fan base thanks in part to its new reality online show, GameCrib, which runs on CBS Interactive’s Gamespot. After taking time to sign autographs with eSports fans, Andy “Reginald” Dinh talked about the growth of eSports, the importance of live streaming and why StarCraft II fans are “jealous” of the success Riot Games is having in competitive gaming in this exclusive interview.
