Best game ever!
i can not believe that news lady managed to explain what dota 2 is in layman's terms so fast lol….respect 😀
THANKS CNN:!:!: :3 <3
Among all the News about E-Sports this is Well Researched and Well Reported..
Good Job CNN!
lmao the only people mentioning league of legends are the people jerking over dota. yall needa chill
This is sad.
Thank you CNN for treating the ESports scene with respect. That's all gamers want.
Why is this news? There are competitions going on for millions all the time.
100 pts for knowing what MOBA is.
A little late to the party CNN, but good effort.
I fail to understand why people bash Esports as trying to be sports. The pro gamers and humble fans don't give a shit about it being "sports" or "being athletes". They care about the eternal spirit of competition & mastery.
I'm not surprised that these are getting more and more popular. If you think about it, we humans always liked seeing people fighting and killing each other in an arena. You know the colosseum? Of course, that was eventually discontinued for "ethical" and cultural reasons. But now, with video games, we can have those bloody arena battles once again and nobody gets hurt. That's why esports are going to become more and more popular.
Surprisingly well put together. If only politics would have been that good @CNN.
Mainstream please accept Esports BibleThump
Why not games I know?
Виртуса нормально засветились на CNN ^)
drugs test. haha , Are they going to ban red bull or something. crazy
eSports, only slightly more straining than golf.
reaction time? w-wait are you talking about dota? …………………………HAHHAHAHAHAHA
The people who don't consider this a sport, but considers chess a sport is an idiot
Waiting for Haters to comment 🙂 kappa
Can't wait for the league of legends compendium making the prize pool a retarded amount of money. Then dota will be left with just a better game.
Fuck why was DJcuck the spokesman for CNN he is such a fucking faggot.
Why did they get this fucking sellout to talk about Esports
