  • eSports May Join Paris 2024 Olympics

    FILE PHOTO - The logo of the Paris candidacy for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games is seen on the Montparnasse tower in PariseSports is growing at an incredible rate. It's a new industry that showcases the competitive potential of gamers across the world.

    While it hasn't traditionally been seen as a sport, many professional sports players and sports bodies are starting to respect eSports as a sport that takes dedication, practice, and sportsmanship, just like any physical sport.

    The next milestone for eSports is for the Olympics to accept it as a sport. The next Olympics event will happen in Paris in 2024. Paris has mentioned that they believe eSports does deserve a spot on the Olympic stage.

    Their argument is that the youth are very interested in eSports as a whole, and it should be considered a sport when taking the competitive environment of eSports into account.

    The difficulty with an eSports Olympic event is that in the current eSports space, competitive players and teams are very stretched between events as it is. Players and teams are often forced to pick between events and the deciding factor is usually down to prize money.

    It's unlikely that the Olympic eSports event will have prize money on the line, so getting the best of the best players to attend will be difficult. Another issue is that eSports spans across dozens of different games. Deciding a single game to be showcased at the Olympics would be incredibly difficult. Alternatively, supporting too many games may be seen as a bad choice, which would give less weight to the medals earned from traditional sports.

  • Results: Capcom Pro Tour Asia Regional Finals

    capcom-pro-tour-magoThe start of last weekend saw the Capcom Pro Tour Asia Regional Finals come to an end, and we now know who came out on top and who will be making it to the Capcom Cup Finals.

    The winner of the Capcom Pro Tour Asia Regional Finals is Mago, a formidable Karin player that has put a lot of effort into his playstyle in recent months to get himself a placement.

    Mago didn't have an easy race to the finish, though. Earlier in the event, Mago took a heartbreaking defeat and found himself sitting in the loser's bracket. Fortunately, Mago had the courage, and maybe a little bit of luck, to fight his way through the loser's bracket and into the grand finals.

    During the event, Mago managed to get a victory in against Bonchan, Kazunoko, and Haitani before he came up against MOV, who, at this point, hadn't lost a single game during the event.

    The grand finals were one of the closest, most exhilarating matches I've watched in a long time. With Mago coming from the loser's bracket, he needed to win two best of three matches in a row, whilst MOV only needed one due to his spot in the winner's bracket.

    A Chun Li matchup for Mago's Karin wasn't exactly putting odds in Mago's favor. Fortunately for Mago though, his Karin playstyle managed to help him pull through two very tight 3-2 victories against MOV to get the grand final win.

    Because of Mago's previous performances, he already has an invitation to the Capcom Cup Finals. Instead, Tse4444 was lucky enough to bag an entry into the Cup Finals from his previous performances, including his top 13th-16th finish at the Asia Regional Finals.
