You're the one claiming the skill gap is lesser and you can't back that fact up. I didn't claim anything.


if you started this topic with the hope or intent to persuade anyone to your point of view, you have failed. your initial case was weak and your replies have been rebuttals with no additional points.

competitive gaming has many, many hurdles to overcome for equality, especially convincing the general public that games are sports and gamers are athletes.

I always think this is such a pointless discussion.

Yes, they are both very different. Everyone understands that. And perhaps you like the one and not the other. That is also fine, given that they are so completely different.

There is however, one thing I admire in both sports and e-sports. These are people who put themselves in a hyper-competitive environment, and have shown themselves to be the best at what they do. For me personally, I think that is something that is commendable.

Take it seriously as in because you can make money at doing it for a living OR take it seriously because it should seriously be considered a "sport" as a whole?

I for one have been playing electronic games for many a years now and I will never consider playing them a sport. It's pathetic that it has actually come to this.

Never did receive a reply back from TC regarding this.

I don't take it seriously because there is a lack of absolute rules for some "e-sports" games, and unless everyone is using the same controllers/mouse/keyboards, the same hardware, the same monitors, and have the same connections, then it's not an even playing field.
Sports require everyone to have the same gear and to follow the same rules. From there, it's only a matter of who is better.

I sacrificed my left testicle. The only real sport is the hunting of those who would violate the rights of a child. End of story. Everything else is either a hobby or an over paid hobby.
I love playing videogames on my thursdays

Yes, Mirror's Edge. :P


So no experience with any competitive games? The ones where players are pitted against each other and not just comparing high scores?

"Have you ever competed at pro level in any game?"


"Any game" means any game, competitive or no. So I repeat Mirror's Edge.

And have you ever competed in a World Cup final? If my claims are baseless than yours are just as baseless as mine.


You're the one claiming the skill gap is lesser and you can't back that fact up. I didn't claim anything.


"It's actually MORE demanding than any other actual sport." IE You're claiming the skill required in real sports is lesser compared to the level required in e-sports. Did you forget your own argument?

Though the *evidence* you provided doesn't actually prove your point at all. (There are plenty of people over 25 who are "Pro Gamers" As a quick Google search reveals players even as old as 33: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatal1ty http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/NesTea http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/White-Ra http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft/BoxeR) So, again, I repeat, your claim is just as baseless as mine.

Alright then, you competed at pro level at mirror's edge... but this has nothing to do with the topic. Playing against the game and comparing high scores with other people is not the same as competing against another player in a truly competitive game.

It would be like having a Starcraft competition being who can beat a bot the fastest. While I think that could be enjoyable to watch, it would just be a joke cup.

Ok, so we can agree that e-sports aren't more demanding, but they also don't have lesser skill gaps than real sports.
