E-sport has collected a pretty big community over the recent years. Competitive gaming moved out of people’s living rooms and basements and onto the big stage. Tournaments can see thousands of seats filled and entire arenas packed to the doors with fans. The e-sports following has turned global and all around the world there are tournaments taking place and competitive gamers training for the next great opportunity to get take their seat onstage. If you’re an e-sports fan or a game enthusiast then you won’t want to miss any of the EU and world championships next year.
One of the easiest ways to watch the competitions live is to catch it online. If it’s big enough there’s no doubt that they’re going to want to share it on the internet. Most of the e-sports fanbase is online, after all. While an arena might only seat a few thousand fans, recent tournaments have seen millions of supporters logging online to watch their favourite teams battle their way to victory. The League of Legends tournaments – probably the most popular e-sports game – have a global community of millions. There are all sorts of places that you can watch all the live games play out from the comfort of your home. They stream it live to their main site and on their Youtube channel ‘LoL Esports’.
Other tournaments and games will stream the competitions on Twitch channels and the Call of Duty World League this year made footage of their live tournaments accessible directly from PlayStations. As long as you’ve got internet, you can just log in and find a link to the feed on the in-game menu. If that isn’t incredible enough, BBC have also caught e-sports fever and you can get the games through their website, too as well as all the major results and information for the anticipated upcoming events. It’s all absolutely free, so you can watch all the tournaments on your laptop or plug it into your TV and watch it with your friends.
However, going online might not be your preferred option. Perhaps the tournament you’re looking to watch isn’t available online or your internet isn’t reliable enough to show you all the action. Thankfully, tournaments are happening all over the world for tons of different games. There are a lot more tournaments going on as well as the few major ones you know about. Amateur tournaments are organised all over the world for competitors fresh on the scene and for lots of great games that the major e-sports organisers haven’t discovered yet. The 2017 e-sports tournaments are not to be missed, so why not do the smart thing and buy yourself a ticket?
Put yourself right in the middle of the action and check out some European tournaments. Tickets are available online and you can renew your Ehic online in seconds, too. Now you don’t have any excuse for not watching the tournaments in Frankfurt and Paris next year. Your friends overseas could even hop the pond to see the events in the UKs very own Gfinity arena. So, get your passport ready and don’t miss out on a single second of the 2017 e-sports games.
