eSports: Avira Hearthstone Tournament
Suspense, strategy, and great prizes – that’s what you’d expect from an eSports tournament and that’s what you’ll get with the Avira Hearthstone Tournament.
What is eSports?
Now: For those of you who don’t know what eSports is, let me explain. eSports is short for ‘electronic sports’ and is the term for competitive video gaming. It’s exactly what you probably think it is by now: Two gamers sitting in front of their PCs, playing games against each other. So far, so good. But eSports is more: It’s professional gamers sitting in front of their PCs, playing live before an audience of several thousand spectators, competing for a huge prize pool. eSport players are becoming almost as famous as the ‘real’ sport stars with fans screaming their names and them giving autographs. The latest huge tournament, the League of Legends World Championship finale in Berlin, Germany, sold out their 17,000 tickets in just 90 seconds. You find this unbelievable? Then take a look at this video.
