I have written before that you could get a scholarship in esports but now you can get a whole degree. If you are not an esports fan or are new to the world you probably think this is a funny thing to consider but esports is a serious business now. I think I might have tried for this myself if that had it when I went to school. To think of all the time I played games instead of doing my homework when playing games could have been my homework.
Kidding aside, just like any competitive sport there is a lot of work and practice that goes into being the best. I don't know if I ever had it at that level but if crypto comes out for an esports game that can pay the rent from item selling I would consider giving it a chance. I don't know if I would go to school for it, but I would give tournaments a try. We will see what games comes out in the next year that have a coin attached.
An interesting story to see and it has become clear that everyone is treating esports as they do traditional sports. But I do wonder what kind of tests or grades you would get? Do they literally grade you on how well you play your role in a moba or your aim in a shooter?
The good news is with streaming even if they don't go pro you can still make a life gaming. The industry really is growing and this is just another step of how far it has gotten.
