What are E-Sports?

This is the best place to begin for those who are new to the idea of e-sports. Essentially, e-sports are a form of virtual competition. As opposed to traditional sports, e-sports commence digitally. There are both amateur and professional players within e-sports, and this is a part of gamer culture that has become increasingly popular in more recent years, including within the last decade. Many professional gamers can make their entire living off of playing video games.

It is thought that live streaming on platforms such as YouTube and Twitch has given rise to the popularity of e-sports. Many colleges and universities even have e-sports teams or leagues, and some even offer scholarships to those that prove their specific talent as video game players.

Some of the common games that e-sports competitors play are:

●  Dota 2

●  Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

●  League of Legends

●  Fortnite

●  Arena of Valor

●  Rocket League

●  Call of Duty

●  Rainbow Six Siege

●  Overwatch

●  Halo

●  World of WarCraft


●  Super Smash Bros

These are just a few of the more popular games that e-sports athletes compete in. The most common genres in e-sports include real time strategy games, first person shooter games, and multiplayer online battle arena games. You’ll want to ask your guest of honor which games they like to play in order to plan the best party for them.
