MN E-Sports Meetup ArtworkE-sports is not a “just sit around and watch players on TV” kind of scene. Unlike traditional sports fans, those interested in e-sports are typically also players of their favorite games. That’s not to say that there aren’t plenty of times when enthusiasts will sit and watch other players on a Twitch livestream, getting overly excited about how differently they would have done that move, or thwarted that attack.  Between sponsorship deals and marketing revenue, some of the more well-known e-champs get paid just as much as their professional physical-sport counterparts.
