Gamer Blog #2

In this blog we are going to talk about something very big that effects many gamers and many gaming communities out there, E-Sports. So exactly what about E-Sports? Well now we will start talking about how E-Sports use to be, the current state of E-Sports, what is helping it grow and the hope of what we will see it become in the future. With that being said, let us dive right in!

What is E-Sports?

E-Sports is an abbreviation for Electronic Sports. This word is used to describe competitive play of video games. There are many other terms used with or in place of E-Sports. The following words are among the list: competitive gaming, professional gaming, cybersports and v-sports (video sports).  The games the generally fall under the E-Sports term are as followed: RTS (real-time strategy), FPS (first-person shooter), MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) and racing games.  However the MMORPG games are on the lower end of E-Sports because they are not nearly as competitive as RTSs, FPSs and Racing games. There are some exceptions to this rule, such as WoW (World of Warcraft).

How Did E-Sports Start?
It is believed that Angel Munoz was one of the founding fathers for console electronic sports leagues, back in 1997. Angel Munoz founded the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) on June 27, 1997. This was a professional sports tournament organization specializing in computer and console video game competitions. CPL is considered the pioneer in professional video gamer tournaments.
