    Saw the film. It's reality TV. It's Not a documentary.

    Stay frosty.

    You can ask, is this child growing or dying?

    Obviously if the kid's been growing rapidly the last decade, you can answer "growing".

    Of course, since the kid's a mortal, you can say "dying".

    Anyone who looks at statistics or public opinion can see that eSports is growing, because the eSports scene is growing. But "eSports" as a whole... It will probably be huge for the next century since kids now are more and more familiar with the internet, but perhaps someday the internet will evolve and we'll have something better than eSports to replace it. Everything is ephemeral, so you can argue "it's dying". But for the purposes of our lifetime, obviously eSports is growing worldwide, and specifically in NA.
    ... That moment when you realized that your bath towel is covered in sawdust.

''Korean national soccer team got to meet their favorite players in the locker room before a big qualifying match.'' they are literally treated like gods there...

    And Looking at LoL or Dota charts pro players are earning so much money and i think that it is only the beginning of E sport as we know it
    I thought it was the Korean football team. Watching the free to play documentary right now
