The help is coming as some gaming groups cannot get access to resources to host larger tournaments, which is why the World of Warcraft, Diablo and StarCraft developer is jumping on-board. Groups with over 200 members will even be greeted with special guests, which is a nice touch. This will only help the eSports community, and gamers as a whole.
