Why is there so much hate on this website for MLG? I don't get it.

I feel that people who take E-Sports seriously are the ones who lack the skill to compete in something called real life.

And this is the only argument that will ever be needed.

When I was 16 I wanted to be as good at CS as the pros... now as an adult, I just wish the pros would go the fuck away and let normal people play games. They've got no lives, they're annoying as fuck most of the time, and they ruin gaming for those of us who don't have 60+ hours a week to spend on it.

Do you feel this way about other sports as well?

When I go outside to play basketball or football the likelihood of running into a pro is much lower than in an online game.

So a skill in something electronic is inferior to any other skill? Because the "real-life" bullshit is just that... bullshit. Games exist in real-life, sir. And some people are very good at them.

I mean... I EXPECT an irrational viewpoint from you, but WOW.

The only thing I consider an E-Sport is cracking bank accounts.

Again there is nothing wrong with doing something that you are good at. If you excel at a video game enough to be professional then pursue it, there are a lot of professional gamers who still lead very normal lives and have jobs outside of their gamer life. Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Wa...orts_player%29 a long time Halo professional started a pretty successful clothing line http://www.kiaeneto.com/pages.php?cID=1&pID=2 so you can't say they lack skill to compete in "real life." Last I checked owning a business is pretty advanced for someone who can't succeed in "real life."

Exactly. Pro basketball players don't spend their days running around to random games between friends.

Plus, people with widely different skill levels don't play together. If someone is a "pro" at basketball they don't jump into a game with a bunch of guys who play once a month and talk endless shit to them.
