2014 League of Legends World Championships is currently near the end of competitive season 4. This year, Worlds will be hosted in a stadium located in Korea. It has turned into the most watched Esport in the last 4 years.
The first season was disappointing compared to now. It used to just be a small event with fold out chairs and a $50,000 prize. Now, they fill soccer stadiums and have famous bands make songs for them. This years prize pool is over $2,000,000.
But the gamer’s don’t play for the money. They play because they love gaming. One pro said he gave up everything for the game, because life gave him a chance to be the best in the world at something, and he wanted to take it.
There are so many teams. TSM will be representing America in this years season. There are a few others but they don’t stand a chance.
As you can see, gaming is turning into something much more than just something you do for fun. It is becoming a career.
