Do you think esports will ever be even 1/10th the size of real sports? if so, why? if not, why not?
Absolutely. It's already 10 times the size as 10 years ago. Dota and lol fill sports arenas and dota had like a 20 million dollar prize pool. It likely won't ever be as big as real sports but it certainly has room to grow.
The money in LoL comes from sponsorship, saleries, promotions, etc. Their tournaments are fucking garbage when it comes to prize pools because Riot/Tencent just jews all the money for themselves.
lel uses a communist system to pay their players. riot literally pays their "pros" autism bux to be NEET. this results in the pros literally not caring about certain tournament matches and just fucking around.
LeL really is a parody of a parody of a competitive video game
