Mike_LowELL: the money is in the banana stand: They are mostly anticlimactic and like watching paint dry. Even as a kid when we only had 1 computer or console, I would get annoyed as fark when my brothers were playing and I wanted to play, I didn't want to watch them play.Depends on the type of game and the quality of the game. The problem is, for someone like me, I think most of the current "e-Sports" are average to mediocre games. But where I would wonder out loud why I would want to watch people play a game I don't think is any good, the long-time competitive game crowd figured out the post-StarCraft II era is their one shot to get some limited fame and fortune playing video games, so they jumped at inferior games (and the sponsors' marketing money) in order to make it happen.
bhcompy: SkittlesAreYum: Sargun: SkittlesAreYum: bhcompy: SkittlesAreYum:Which all ties back in to my original statement. League is designed to watch. Dota isn't. Dota is designed for people like you to complain that it's superior because it's harder. Hell, I love EVE, because of that same reason, but it's shiatty to observe if you don't know the game.
Mike_LowELL: degenerate-afro: It's probably the simplest game in terms of hand-eye coordination out of the major RTS (Starcraft, DOTA, LoL,Warcraft III even Age of Empires)After giving this a lot of thought, I've actually concluded the game is closer to Action-RPGs and 3D brawlers like Dynasty Warriors. Of course, nobody has stopped to think how horribly stupid it is to play a versus multiplayer 3D brawler with an RTS free camera and RTS targeting interface, but that's a really long story.
