gahh dont feel like reading all that text,
its nothing new, e'sports' was a thing since the times of unreal quake starcraft etc. I used to play dota 1 in high school and its a great team based custom map on warcraft 3. you needed 10 people for a full game so it spread around quickly among friends. later on a lot more mobas showed up with their degenerate gameplay. the most prominent offender is LoL which managed to appeal to retarded masses. Then valve cashed in with its dota 2. That one is really tedious to play if you arent playing with friends. it matches you with random non cooperative people and you play the same thing over and over again. A session takes about 40 mins to 1 hour.
It isnt nice to see how marketing/business people is attracted like vultures to carrion. Everything goes to shit as it becomes more popular.

**This reminds me, next time theres a sorc war/quest heiach needs to stream and comment on it as he plays then put it on youtube twitch or whatever. I'd do it meself if i could speak the tongue!
