Good morning everyone present here, today I am going to give a speech on esports. Competitive gaming is known as esports, and it has gained a lot of worldwide popularity. Millions of committed followers watch games online while millions of players compete in several tournaments and events. Obviously, esports differ greatly from traditional sports like football and baseball, but because they have a sizable fan base and competitive gaming, many people claim that esports are legitimate sports.
Real-time strategy games, first-person shooters, and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games all fall under the umbrella of electronic sports, or eSports. Dota 2, League of Legends, and most recently Heroes of the Storm (HoTS) have become more well-known as eSports games.
In order to manage their schedules and daily needs, eSports teams hire coaches and managers in the same way that professional sports teams do. The market for eSports is currently rapidly expanding, boasting multimillion-dollar deals and billions of fans worldwide. It is anticipated that more people will start watching eSports both online and on television.
Singapore’s eSports scene has never developed to the same extent as that in the US, Europe, China, Korea, or even Thailand, the Philippines, and Malaysia. In such nations, it is feasible to pursue a career as a professional gamer and earn a living. Daryl Koh, a competitive Dota 2 player who once represented Singapore, said, “It is not simple for every Singaporean to pursue eSports with the army and reality, which is why I went to China to join a new team to follow my goals.” Thank you.
