E-sports and the effect it's had on gaming

E-sports is bigger than ever. I am happy to say that. It’s a really good thing. Websites like twitch.TV and the YouTube live streaming service allow more people than ever to watch games ranging from Starcraft II to Counterstrike on a competitive stage for free. It allows professionals to stream when they are practicing and they can give the average player tips and tricks on how to get better at the game (TSM Gleeb is especially good for this, since he streams nearly every day and commentates every game he plays). But how does it affect everyone involved? How does it affect the pros, spectators and facilitators of these new sports? (Culture)

Global DOMINATION!

sure PC Gamers still play for fun but Global rankings mean a LOT to us. well for those who stay in tune with global rankings.

When you are top 20 top 10 in the world you Game with a chip on your shoulder and a target on your back. that's a lot of stress but many enjoy it.

the eSport feel to many games now makes PvP so competitive which makes for HIGHER quality Online MP experiences.

eSport has made Devs really fine tune PvP now a days for complete balance.
