Ever since esports became a global event more than a decade ago, the industry has been trying to cement itself as the next major sports league. Why? There are 2.5 billion video game players on this planet – yet year in and year out, the industry attempts to distance itself from its roots in an attempt to become something that it is not. Whether a publisher or brand, the industry needs a down-to-earth, accessible approach to esports that stops trying to silo itself as a professional sport and focus on what its core draw is: a video game.
