Electronic sports, or as everyone calls it, ‘E-sports’! Just this simple word brings excitement and joy to all the gamers out there. What is E-sports? Why is it this popular? And, why does our generation wants to be a part of it, fight for it, make careers out of it? Let us all come to this basic conclusion: E-sports are not just some games which pass our time when we are bored of other things. For us gamers, E-sports is: A whole new world, a world that accepts us, improves us and gives us our virtual strengths. I know we all agree to this! These are gamers I am talking about, gamers with sharper minds than most of us.

Gamers love rivalry.
They are enrolling for tournaments, practising in scrims, trying hard to beat everyone they face. It’s fun! Isn’t it?

E-sports has grown way more popular than expected. In fact, it is going to make its way to the Olympics soon enough! Initially, E-sports was just some teams facing each other in online competitions. But now, it is a lot more than that. It carries the feelings of many players. They work hard to win it. Most of the time, even being a mere part of it is a big deal. Starting during the 1990s, gaming went from a relaxing platform to a coordinated pro gaming field. In India, E-sports has grown five times since the year 2015. As of now, we have more than 14 E-sports broadcast platforms. In 2021, the viewership of it is 17 million, which is expected to increase in the upcoming years, for sure. We belong to this community, and we are proud of our gaming! Aren’t we? India’s rank was 16 on the Forbes list; come, let us make it 1st!
