E-sports is a relatively new form of competitive gaming with several different formats of play. Esports often takes the form of multiplayer, spectator-based video game competitions, most frequently between teams, professionally or privately. Matches are generally based on a theme and may incorporate elements of strategy and luck. The use of complex tools and mathematics in these matches is also quite common.
Since there is no actual “contact” between players and viewers, there is very little cohesion between the organizing technique and the actual sport itself. However, many traditional sports have incorporated aspects of esport into their formats. For example, soccer matches have long used referees to ensure that the match follows a set of rules, which in turn, prevents the players from doing anything they would be able to do within the “real” sport. The same can be applied for other traditional sports such as basketball and baseball.
As a result of the dissolution of traditional sports, there are now an increased number of teams playing against each other within the ESL. In order to win, the team must not only have a solid lineup of players, but they must also have great teamwork and a high level of teamwork. This is unlike traditional sports where there is more individual competition among players, which creates a level of natural cohesion among teams and leads to a sense of loyalty and camaraderie. In contrast, there are few teams within the ESL that have strong teamwork, leading to a sense of camaraderie within the teams and an increased level of challenge.
Additionally, another interesting aspect of the ESL is the way it organizes its competitions. Unlike the games of the past, there are no real rules that dictate the type of game that players can play. Players and teams are free to pick any format they wish, including the point system and the actual game play itself. With this freedom, there are many different formats that players and teams can choose from in order to make their experience with ESL gaming more fun and enjoyable.
Last year, there was extensive coverage of the ESL that can be seen in its popular video series “ESL TV.” One of the most talked about topics of the show was the development of team cohesion and support. The show showcased several examples of how an individual player could contribute to his or her team’s overall performance. For example, in the “CS: GO” video game, there were several different team compositions that players used depending on the situation. While some favored a one-man-show style of play, others went for the traditional sports style of play and coordinated well as a team.
The future of e-sport will undoubtedly continue to evolve in new directions. One interesting idea is how e-sport matches may eventually feature actual video game tournaments, similar to those that the WCG and IPL had had in the past. In recent years, Valve has also shown a keen interest in supporting traditional sports teams and leagues by providing their own competitive gaming platform. Whether it is CS: GO or some other game, the future of e-sport looks bright and promising.
