Well I think that it is obvious, much to the chagrin of many "traditionalist", that eSports is making its move into the spotlight. The best way to see that ESPN is taking eSports more seriously is the creation of its very own section on the website. Not only will you get to hear about some of the top players in the world, but you'll get to see exclusive reports about tournaments, team members, stand out talent. You'll also get to see breakdown analysis, and videos capturing all of this in all of its glory.
Now I will say one thing about it, I'm impressed that ESPN is taking this step forward, even though the president really really doesn't want to deal with eSports, and going on the record saying its not a sport it's a competition just like Chess or Checkers. The reality is that this is a growing phenomena and its only getting bigger as more and more people embrace it.
I do wonder what all they are going to over, as you can see as of this article they have League of Legends (LoL), Defense of the Ancients 2 (Dota2), and HearthStone as their sections. One would hope that there is going to be an increase in what will be covered, *cough, cough* SMITE and Counter-Strike, but I guess we will find out later down the road. For now lets just bask in this moment that is a pretty strong indication that we might see a bigger presence for eSports on more than just the website.
