Our Take
Competitive gaming isn't just about playing every day and night. It's about getting your feet wet in competition and learning what it takes to overcome the stress and pressure when it counts. This is eSports continues to be an educational and entertaining series, especially for people like me that don't know much about this aspect of the industry.
