Overwatch Makes A Huge Announcement About Competitive Gaming Didn't see another thread on this, but it's entirely possible the board just doesn't care. Still, I think it's an interesting development, as there's been a fair amount of talk in recent years about the legitimacy of e-sports as competitive leagues. Blizzard Entertainment is establishing a professional league around their game Overwatch, and Bob Kraft is set to own the Boston based team. I haven't completely decided where I stand on this kind of thing yet, but as an avid gamer myself I find it fascinating. On the one hand, it kind of blurs some lines when you start calling game leagues "sports", but watching some of the Korean teams and the coordination and training they have to put in to win their competitions, I don't think the idea that there is a physical component to these games is that outlandish. Aside from that, I participate in a charity event every fall that is a 24 hour game marathon, and I can tell you it takes a toll on you. Calling them "athletes" would go too far, but I don't think these competitions and leagues are going to go away any time soon. I think down the road as the newer generations grow up with these in the mainstream and with greater technologies, that some of the traditional sports will be surpassed by e-sports in popularity. What is everyone's thoughts?
