Get out of the house!
Contrary to 'popular belief', the majority gamers do actually enjoy getting outside and socializing with others who have similar interests - like gaming! Ever heard of this thing called a LAN party? People love getting together with their mates and random people, hooking up their PCs, playing games and chatting away in the late-night pizza lines.
Barcrafts and Pubstomps really aren't all that different to a LAN party in the end, however, we've now added more exciting action, beer and food. A combination of these factors makes for a great night out for any eSport fan.
There's something special to be said about the environment at a live eSport viewing event, it's really hard to understand unless you're there in person. There is a deep passion that runs through all of the fans' veins, and if you think about it this way, these people spend as much time playing, studying and admiring their game of choice as would someone who's into 'traditional' sports like football or tennis.
Add this together, the passion, the late nights, alcohol and most certainly caffeine and you have yourself a wild crowd who are not only super excited to see their special game on the big screen in a public setting, they are also very unlikely to cause issue for the bouncers.
Different horses for different courses
You'll find quite a lot of overlap with various different live crowds. I've been to my fair share of Dota 2 Pubstomp and Starcraft II Barcraft events now to know what they're generally like - although the games are vastly different, the crowds are generally very similar.
Once again, this touches on the passion aspect - you know that the random guy you're sitting next to might not be the greatest player of all time and may be 100 spots down the ladder as to where you're currently sitting, but you're certain that the passion they contain for the game is just as fierce as yours.
