eSports Good or Bad?

What are esports?

Simply put, esports are the competitive wing of multiplayer gaming. But there’s a wide range of ways, places and games to play.

Large-scale esports tournaments are happening all the time on the Internet with players competing from home. Platforms such as and World Gaming Network allow users to join matchups as independent players or go in as teams. Although many gamers play just for the thrill, online tournaments frequently award cash prizes

A growing number of colleges also offer esports as varsity-level sports. Then there’s the live, professional, circuit where players compete in venues that accommodate hundreds — if not thousands — of fans. Pro games are broadcast on video channels, including YouTube Gaming and Twitch, and many more online platforms.

Are esports bad for kids?

Putting in the hours required to get good at anything takes a toll. Esports carry risks for the body — and, possibly, the developing brain. The eight to 12 hours that many top esports players say they train per day has led to an increase in computer related injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injury and back pain. And after several competitors suffered collapsed lungs, players are being warned not to hold their breath during intense moments. Though esports don’t have the same physical risks as contact sports such as football, pro players and ex-pros complain of burnout.

Situation of eSports on india?

Situation of eSports in India is similar to Indian football,Indian athletics and Indian civic sense. All of them require vast improvements but receives none.
1• India has been introduced to the Internet and computer significantly late.
2• Even when India got introduced to computers, a greater section of the middle class people didn't have the means to afford a computer.
3• With the non availability of computers the Internet took off significantly later.
4• The Indian mindset is that kids should grow up to be an earning member of the family who will financially support the family. If they fail at studies they become hooligans and the rest are forced to follow the traditional path. The family support to choose ones own path is nil.
5• Almost in all aspect of sports politics and money are involved. Conducting an esports without politics will be next to impossible.
6•  There might be a dearth of skill due to minimum exposure. Players don't get exposure to a highly competitive scene hence they don't get better. They reach their skill set ceiling and are unable to break through it.

Probably the next generation of parents might actually learn to support their children and not curb their goals into satisfying their own dreams.
