Definition esports

Esports, short for electronic sports, is a form of competition using video games. Esports often takes the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players, played individually or as teams.

What Is eSports?

Esports transforms online gaming into a spectator activity, similar to watching traditional sports. Instead of observing physical athletes, spectators watch video gamers compete against each other. This trend has become incredibly popular, with organized arena events where people gather to watch these competitions. Just like traditional sports, eSports have competitive leagues and tournaments where gamers compete against each other.

Major Players of the eSports Industry

There have been several major eSports operators, such as Turtle Entertainment, Major League Gaming (MLG), and Dreamhack. Activision Blizzard, one of the leading game publishers, bought out Major League Gaming in 2016 and has also developed its own proprietary eSports platform.
