    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

    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.
