Why eSport is so popular?
The best part of this industry is that people inherently enjoying it while participating in battles or even massive eSports tournaments. Unfortunately, it can be difficult not to get lost and know where to star. Huge amount of players, nice list of games, strong and competitive teams to play with… A lot of young people are choosing gaming as a career option and the main reason why – it is possible to earn millions, get sponsorship deals, there are a lot of games that you can bet on etc. Also it is getting more popular to do branding through eSport because of such a large and divergent audience.
