Hi everyone, my name is Asad and I live in Moscow. I am a front-end developer and amateur e-sports analyst. In this topic, I want to discuss e-sports in a nutshell.
First of all, what’s e-sports? It is playing video games competitively for a huge prize pool. For example, last The International 2019 tournament prize pool was $34,300,000 and the winner took away $15,620,181. So you can see, that they don’t play for just fun and there’s much motivation behind it. So I think it’s one of the greatest types of sport for a younger generation to do what you love to do and make a career with it.
There are a lot of different disciplines of e-sports and I am interested in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). I have several ideas about creating an educational platform and content on YouTube/Twitch and currently working on it. I am going to tell you about them in my future threads. Stay tuned!
