Our Thoughts:

eSports are gaining a lot of momentum and interest, and with every event like this, the popularity and publicity grows. The more publicity and popularity eSports generates, the more development it will attract, which in turn will help fuel further publicity and interest. This looks like it should be an amazing tournament!
