Ah, eSports - so fun to watch an association go through the growing pains of becoming accepted and professional. The thing that makes eSports so unique is that we expect players to act like gamers, while also being professional eSports athletes. Riot has taken a stance on this that has raised some eyebrows.
DreamHack has begun in Sweden, and I already told you that two of our local guys will be competing in the Quake Live tournament, but that's not all that's going on. Check out all this eSports!
Back in June, we told you about Orena, a new organization aimed at organizing and hosting eSports tournaments. Well, they are starting their Dota 2 Cup next week, and it is huge!
Kicking off today in Columbus, Ohio, Major League Gaming (MLG) is hosting a championship using two major franchises: COD and DOTA. With the game only released earlier this month, I wonder how much time teams have had to hone their skills.
Over on Facebook, a mini-revolution has been going on. People dissatisfied with existing eSports associations in South Africa have banded together to make a new one. I had a chat with their President, Anthony Nell, to find out more.
Riot is looking for your feedback on some major changes coming to LoL. Ranging from role and map changes, to towers and gold overhauls, LoL is going to be a very different game.
I love playing LoL, mostly because there's no pause option. Don't start a game if you can't commit to the time it's going to take to complete it. Sure, sometimes life happens, but most of the time people pause for no good reason. So, what excuses would you deem acceptable?
Valve has officially unveiled their Three Spirits update, showing off Storm, Earth and Ember spirits. However, I found the new features to be the most interesting, particularly the coaching option.

Remember when I told you that there was a rumor about a partnership between ASUS and some local shout casters? Well, now it's official. But there might be even more to the ASUS investment in local eSports.
Monday morning rage time! Over the past few months I’ve dealt a lot with eSports clans and players and there's just one single thing has stood out over all this time that I simply can’t handle anymore.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Great news that Energy eSports is going to ESWC, but all is not well for other clans and groups. In fact, we've got some sad news about Team XtaZ and MGO Never Say Die (NSD).
Bizzard's MOBA started life as Blizzard DOTA. However, after legal battles with Valve, they changed it to Blizzard All-Stars. Well, now it's pulling another Madonna - time to reinvent the Blizzard MOBA.
