Competitive shooters on the other hand, not so good. Well... except for CS:GO. I wouldn't really call anything else going on in the last few months in the competitive shooter communities, professional gaming, some of the CoD Community is trying
  2. Found this yesterday, there was a Killzone invitational. It started last Friday and the winners have already been announced. The first link is the plug, the second is an article and video of the final match. http://www.killzone.com/en_US/blog/news/2013-12-26_the-first-killzone-invitational-friday-group-stages.html http://www.killzone.com/en_US/blog/news/2013-12-30_team-iam-wins-first-killzone-invitational.html Anyone else know this was happening?
  3. I was born in 1957 and I remember all of those bands, they're all hard to beat. My favorite blast from the past will probably always be Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd and not necessarily in that order, it depends on the tune.
  4. Bungie has been tweaking the competitive multiplayer part of Destiny for quite some time. The Beta's been pushed back to summer 2014, but the release date for the game was confirmed and there's something of a small bonus if your a Playstation player. Check this article out for some details. http://www.gottabemobile.com/2013/12/09/destiny-release-date-confirmed-beta-delayed-hits-ps4-first/
  5. Here's a little more food for thought. ESports is here to stay and despite the trials and tribulations experienced by players, casters, spectators, developers, publishers, sponsors, organizers, even the media, (ain't that a mouthful) people are still plugging away at it. They are still trying to find a model that makes all of the above work together to produce a consistent reliable model that meets the needs of all of the above. In some circles it seems as though everyone is familiar with professional gaming/eSports, there are hundreds of thousands if not millions of people interested in it. S
  6. Athletics visa's for professional gamers? Yep, it's a reality. Check out this article from NBC News. http://www.nbcnews.com/technology/score-professional-video-gamers-awarded-athletic-visas-6C10679998
  7. Thought this might encourage a little more interest. The sites name is (not surprisingly) Esports Earnings. I think it's pretty reliable, even if some of it needs to be updated. Here's a link: http://esportsearnings.com/
  8. You're not looking for a debate. If you were you'd be sticking to the subject, and have a little substance, a well defined position. Instead your trying to marginalize, or belittle the subject. I don't think you've been able to do that to your satisfaction, and neither do you, so you've moved to trying to do the same thing to me that you couldn't do to the subject at hand. None of that has anything to do with a debate, and I doubt seriously that these tactics would be included in an updated version of "How to win friends and influence people." What you've got, are a couple of homilies you're t
  9. @Germinator... There are some people paying their way thru college doing this. A guy called IDanishFreak was making enough with video commentaries to pay his way through medical school, and yes he also has sponsors. Have you heard of him? How about Whiteboy7th st? Whiteboy never played any pro tournaments and IDanishFreak hasn't in a long time. No one said it was easy, if that's what you're looking for you're in the wrong place, and I never said, or even thought anything different. Sponsors do more than help you get to events, I mentioned that in my last post. The pro tournaments and champ
  10. LOL... Esports is Professional competitive play, professional gaming. And people do make a living at it. In fact some people make a living with it by combining other gaming activities such as live streaming, commentaries and/or montages on YouTube and promotional work for various organizations including sponsors. If your team is solid, and you've won, or placed in tournaments, you'll eventually end up with sponsors. What you get from sponsors depends on how good your team is, whether or not you've placed, or won a pro level tournamnt, how long your team has been together, or kept it's
  11. I have to assume your talking about CoD. If so, why don't you tell me why you refer to it as, "that damn game?" What game do you prefer?
  12. The last week and a half or more have been really crappy for me. I live in Vegas, and its damn hot here. We left a couple of computer’s on when we left the house Monday before last. The A/C went down, then my daughter’s PC and mine over heated and burnt out some components. It took most of 4 days to get the A/C back and another 3 to get the parts to fix both my daughters PC and Mine. I’ve been busy with college classes since then, and I thought my troubles were behind me. Then the **** hit the fan. Specifically, Esports ****. It had in fact been hitting the fan during the entire t
