Do you watch Esports?

16 posts in this topic

Hi.

Do you watch esports? what games do you watch especially? What events do you follow?

 

I'm huge fan of Dreamhack events, and it's tournaments. The games i like to watch is CS:GO, Starcraft 3 and any dota gametype. 

The funny thing is that i don't play games like Starcraft or dota. The whole experience of watching some pro players in a tournament, is really something beyond gaming when it comes to gaming in a regular sense for me. The hype and the cheer of a crowd at a event, combined with the gaming experience, makes it even more entertaining to follow. 

 

What are your thoughts? do you rather play the games yourself, or do you also enjoy watching high level gaming as well?

I have heard of it, but haven't really tried it yet. Can someone recommend me on how to start with it? Because I am kind of intrigued by the idea of watching professional gamers. And is there also like a Magic the Gathering-related something I can watch?

I really only watch big events these days like Evo, Wcs, and the international. As for the comment above me MOG turnys are on twitch all the time when I browse it.

I really like the competition elements in games. So when watching somebody who really know how to play the game on a high level, i can learn new tactics, aim control or whatever the pro gamers is capable of. Sometimes the shear skill of the player is what makes me baffled and awed. It could be insane headshots or awesome tactics. 

 

This is a "frag highlight" video of some of the high level gamers out there at tournaments.

I love E-sport. Ive been watching Twitch WAY more than regular TV.

Im a huge Fps e-sport fan.

Quake tournaments just blow my mind with how Fast and accurate some human beings are.

I suspect a Skynet pretty soon.

Personally, I just really hate that they call it "E-sports".   Playing video games is not a sport, for fuck's sake.

 

But I do respect the professionals.

 

I do not watch them though.
