There is a lot going on to drive the popularity of Esports over in the west. CS:GO, League of Legends and Dota2 are bringing in huge streaming numbers, getting espn coverage and drawing in high profile sponsors. At the end of the day, we as fans, are not here for any of that, we are drawn to these games for other reasons.
