League of Legends eSports [Are you a Player or Viewer?]
Tonight I have been watching some League of Legends eSports tonight. Saw 3 awesome games with Curse (CRS) vs Team Solo Mid (TSM), GGU vs CRS and CRS vs. Vulcan (VUL). Curse’s players VoyBoy is so great. Met him at the Curse Party at PAX East too and he is very friendly.
I are myself playing on the EU West Server.
eSport on the rise
There is allot of different games that are great for eSports out there. And the arena keeps getting bigger each year. Allot has happened since my Brother ran the eSports cafe Frontline Games in Halmstad several year ago.
eSports as an entertainment form is on the rise with things like BarCraft being organised all over the world for Starcraft and League Of Legends. It has long been the national sport of South Korea and are exploding in China right now. Even here in Sweden things are happening and DreamHack Winter last year was broadcasted live on Swedish national TV.
DreamHack Summer expands eSports
DreamHack Summer here in Sweden just announced the Official tournaments today. They are: League of Legends, Starcraft II Heart of the Swarm, Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Heroes of Newerth. They are moving into a newly built arena that will host a total seating capacity of around 3500 people.
Will I See you there?
