Who Wants to Watch People Play Games Anyway?
YOU DO! In Recent years the demand from eSports fans has transformed the way we view competitive gaming across the world. From watching tournaments behind the screen on twitch.tv to more social settings at pubs, bars & cinemas to watch tournament finals such as GSL, Worlds & The International.
These eSports events are beginning to overtake traditional spectator sports including the finals series for the NFL & NBA finals. We will explore what’s driving this phenomena & what is being done to bring these events closer to fans and to the mainstream here in Australia.
I will be presenting this panel at PAX Australia in the Kookaburra Theatre at 4:30 pm on October 31st.
I hope you can join me and co-panelists, Amelia Savery (Sunset), Ryan Dingle (Chinglish), Jason O’Callaghan (New Game Plus) & Leigh Mandalov (Maynarde), for what should be a lot of fun discussing the rise of eSports, major tournaments and the events surrounding them.
If you would like to submit questions to the panelists, please email them to [email protected]
See you at PAX!
