    Seems to be doing pretty well. MOBA is very popular right now and Starcraft will never die.

''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

    Hmm. I'd say... eSports are gradually coming to the West.

    eSports are growing because of MOBAs, and specifically because of LoL.
    18 million people watched the LoL Allstars last year, and this year the event is even bigger so far. So that's just incredible by itself.

    Totally must be true, since you saw it in a movie and all.

    Stay frosty.

    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.
