Im very sorry but i have a big problem with this statement, Competition on a game which is the heart of E-Sports IS fun, have you ever been so good at a game that you demolish players who play casually, are on a completely different skill level from you or you are the person being demolished? Imagine being in the position of getting destroyed by a player who clearly invests more time into the game than you, they appear to be unkillable because they know EXACTLY how to survive that particular scenario, For BOTH the highly skilled player and the outclassed player this is so BORING, ive been in a lot of situations were im just killing and beating countless people who dont even play on a competitive level and the same for me when i go up against WAY better players.
Now change that too TWO equally skilled players in two evenly matched teams, regardless if you are good or bad as long as you face players who are at your skill level you need to try in order to win, that is fun to me, the feeling of tension, a close game in which a few kills are the difference between a victory or a loss, now imagine doing that for money you feel double the feeling.
E-Sports FORCES good players to face other good players, its fun for both teams as they are both fighting for top place for a prize of $250,000, yes you do get people who don't do it for fun but they are the idiots of competitive gaming and E-Sports, not the ones who play for the thrill of the match.
This is what i mean by a stigma and i hope we can over come the stigma in the future.
Sorry if it sounded ranty but i just don't like people getting the wrong idea of things.
EDIT: Im not great with my words so sorry if i offended anyone, im just saying that being guaranteed a win every 9/10 games is not fun at all and isnt a reflection of my own skill, i consider myself good at Halo but i dont speak for any other game or its player base.
