My introduction to E-Sports

E-Sports is relatively new to most people and is quite often overlooked. But my first ESP event, the League of Legends OPL Finals, showed me that it was nothing to be overlooked.

Shooting on behalf of Andy Green and the games creator, Riot Games, I ventured down to Rod Laver Arena to see what all the fuss was about. Greeted by a display of huge LED screens and gamers that were treated like celebrities, a sense of anxiety and excitement filled the room as The Chiefs took on the undefeated, Dire Wolves.

Whilst I didn’t fully understand the game itself, the one thing I took away from the day was the immense passion that these players and fans have. I see a lot of it in my line of work, be it automotive, music or sports, and the emotion shown at the OPL finals showed me that E-Sports is going to be a very loved and popular sport in years to come.
