Like the Super Bowl, but only cooler - Dota 2 gaming at the pub

Wrapping it up

 

For non-lovers of eSports, articles like this generally look like a complete load of bullcrap - with harsh statements coming in regularly including the boring and same-old "get a real job" or "this isn't a proper sport" etc.

If you're not an eSports fanatic and you've gotten this far in the article, congratulations! I cannot urge you enough to head along to one of these events and see it with your own eyes. Whether it be a Starcraft II barcraft covering an $87,500 first-place Korean best of five match or the grand finals of the Dota 2 International which sees every single first place team member walk away a millionaire, you're guaranteed to learn a lot, have a great time, and meet some new people.

A normal live eSports viewing event will cost you anywhere between $0 - $50 for entry, depending on what perks you wish to have. Smaller and more common events like the Starcraft II ones held in small bars or pubs will most likely see you enter for free, compared to that like The International Dota 2 viewing, which was a ticketed casino event, with VIP options up to $60 AUD ($47) per person.

In return for your attendance, generally you will be entered in draws for prizes (alongside free merchandise), have the ability to get your name out to any potential sponsors as you see fit, and also discuss anything with the administrators that you may wish to bring up. Events like these are one of the best times to get your own name or that of your gaming team/organization out there to the world.
