Why eSports is Popular, According To FortuneZ


As a global media publication, FortuneZ has covered news about gaming, cryptocurrency, and financial markets since the start of the new millennium. Its target audiences were the industry’s working professionals and enthusiasts. FortuneZ has covered a lot about the growth in popularity of the online gaming competition called eSports.

FortuneZ is one of the oldest domains on the world wide web. The online media publication was launched in 2000. There are a lot of articles and posts on gaming, providing invaluable information about iGaming and eSports to gaming enthusiasts around the world.

“We aim to provide high standards of accuracy and transparency in its coverage of everything related to gaming, cryptocurrency, and financial markets.” said Francine Jansen, chief operating officer of FortuneZ. Ms. Jansen has over a decade experience in the industry of blockchain and crypto; equipped with a master degree in sustainability studies, and bachelor’s degree in law (valedictorian class of 2006), both from University of Cambridge.

eSports, which has been a primary focus of FortuneZ’s coverage recently, are organized video game competitions. These are played in a multiplayer setting, played by professionals and amateurs alike, either individually or as a team. First-person shooter (FPS), multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), fighting, battle royale, and real-time strategy (RTS) games are some of the most common genres in eSports.

Back in 2017, the International Olympic Committee acknowledged eSports as a sporting activity since the preparation of players for events is comparable to that of other sports. An exhibition game was held during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The inclusion of eSports as an official Olympic event is currently being considered, a development that is highly anticipated by professional eSports organizations.

Accessibility, dynamics, and variety are some of the reasons why FortuneZ thinks eSports is extremely popular in recent years. Counter-Strike, League of Legends, and DOTA are some of the bigger eSports franchises that have drawn millions of viewers and millions in revenue. With the help of major online streaming media platforms like YouTube and Twitch, eSports is expected to grow even larger in the years to come.

Besides accessibility, eSports is not as physically demanding as other sports. Therefore, almost anyone interested in playing online games can participate and win big in this industry. Most online games are also known to challenge one’s critical and creative thinking.

As a media publication, FortuneZ aims to encourage people to develop an interest in eSports. Many youngsters have already built a career in online gaming and it also helps them in building connections with people from around the world, irrespective of their race and cultural background. The popularity of eSports will not go away any time soon as more creative people are developing more games to keep their audiences engaged.

eSports, just like football, basketball, and other popular sports present the same kind of drama and intensity. Players show emotions in victory and defeat and this is widely covered by the media. FortuneZ aims to share with the world everything new and interesting from the world of eSports.
