Yeah, unless you're a faggot about it obviously.
Conversations about it usually go something like this.

>Why do you watch other people play games instead of playing them yourself?
>Same reason we watch football and shit.
>Oh fair enough.

Unless you're a socially awkward fuckwit, people will never actually look down on you for your hobbies tbqh

>>54862508
It's not the kind of thing you'd bring up when talking to someone you don't know, but then again you're not supposed to bring up personal interests with a stranger anyway. All in all, I'd imagine being a fan of esports isn't really treated diffferently than any other niche interest
>>
>>54862508
Only when talking about hobbies, you cant introduce yourself with a stranger asking:
>did you see Australians getting khan'd?
>>
>>54862508
Only if your companion might be interested in it, for example, he mentioned he plays Dota or something. Video games and e-sports are still not a normie thing.

kek of course. Do you actually talk about it with your friends irl?
>>
>>54864220
It's pretty normal to talk about esports among your friends if that's the sort of thing you're into (and chances are that this is exactly the sort of thing you're into), but that's just like anywhere else. More notably the interest is widespread enough that no one would really take notice or think it to be unusual for people to be openly talking about esports in public. You can expect to be able to talk about Brood War with any male aged between 12 and 35. We also have like three television channels dedicated to esports and several for Go (or Baduk as they call it here).

This is just cultural norm though. I don't actually have any irl friends.

Thread done.

we beat the kids/teens who claim they're gamers

Not really socially acceptable. Definitely don't talk about it to random people. I talk about professional league of legends with a couple of people who I know watch it too. Speaking of which what's everyone's rank? Silver shitter here

it would be weird/cringey to just start talking about esports out of the blue with strangers.
ive never really understood the point of watching somebody else play vidyas instead of playing it yourself, maybe im getting old.
>>
>>54864643
Read >>54863281. People watch esports because there's a much higher standard of play at the competitive level. Maybe you're confusing esports with the Let's Play content that's become especially popular over the past few years which are literally just "celebrity" figures playing the video games that the viewers could just as well play themselves.
>>
>>54864779
but the same thing can be said about regular sports too though. id be more entertained shooting a basketball and missing the majority of the shots than i would be from watching an nba game where the skill level is significantly better.
>>
Sorta, i guess.
>>54865012
not everyone is like you.
>>
>>54865012
>the same thing can be said about regular sports too
Exactly.

A lot of the fun in playing competitive games is in getting better and figuring out strategies for winning more. Players watch competitive standard play of the games they play to see how the best players play the game and learn from it to inform their own play. Esports spectators generally don't exclusively watch esports and never play the game.

Who do you think is the Dom/Sub in the Doa/MonteCristo duo? I bet doa gives it to Monte's boipussy after casting.

After we completely dominated the Counter-Strike scene in the early 2000's, it's accepted. It makes sense it's unheard of in Australia considering your shitty broadband, while you'll get tax reductions over here for buying one.

How the fuck do you, of all things, get beaten by mongols? They literary still live in huts.

Fucking e-sports? Really? That's like some nerdy kid making fun of the alpha in class because he sneezed during a lecture.

Glassing is ok. But sacrificing such people to monguls is just too cruel even for Aussies.

Stop the khaning now.

I feel like everyone games casually. If you play competitively it comes off more as a hobby. Similar to flying RC planes or learning an instrument.
