What is Esports?
eSports(or electronic sports) describes the world of competitive, organized video gaming. Competitors from different leagues or teams face off in the same games that are popular with at-home gamers: League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Valorant and PUBG, to name a few. These... gamers are watched and followed by millions of fans all over the world, who attend live events or tune in on TV or online. Streaming services like Twitch allow viewers to watch as their favorite gamers play in real time, and this is typically where popular gamers build up their fandoms.
It’s different from standard video gaming in that esports is competitive (human-vs-human) and usually has an engaging spectator element to it, like traditional sports. Esports tournaments usually consist of amateur or professional gamers competing against one another for a cash prize. Think of esports as competitive video gaming where skill and professionalism is celebrated. The pro gamers who play at this level know the games inside out, much like a professional footballer or athlete would in their respective fields. Professional teams just like traditional sports have coaches, analysts and managers who help to get the most out of the players and organise strategies.
Players can either play one-on-one against one another (in games like FIFA and Street Fighter), or in teams. For example, in CSGo, two teams of five play off against each other, while in Overwatch, two teams of six compete. Rules and strategies can differ greatly depending on the game in question.
What is Esports Fantasy?
With the rising popularity of esports, we are seeing esports treading on the same path as traditional sports like cricket, football etc. This has given way for a whole new set of product offerings tangential to these events, fantasy being just one of them... The concept of fantasy esports is fairly straightforward. You select a virtual team from a pool of potential real life players and compete against other peoples’ team picks. Based on the real life performance of your selected players, your team earns points which are then compared against other players’ teams to determine the winner.
Let’s take Fantasy CSGO as an example. Your Counter Strike: Global Offensive fantasy draft will usually consist of 5 picks. These picks earn/lose points for Kills/Deaths/Assists or other in-game achievements.
The sum of all your picks will be your teams’ score which shall determine your ranking when compared to other peoples’ team scores.
