As esports organisations move forward at speed, the space for casual money-making competition may not have kept pace.
The number of gamers who have the passion and dedication to play competitively and use their skills to earn money is growing. Yet, there is no equivalent to semi-pro football in esports, where players can make a nice chunk of change without being pro. Aside from do-it-yourself wagers, the only way to earn cash at the moment is to go fully professional, which isn’t viable for everyone. Furthermore, because the pipeline for casual players is somewhat lacking, it might be difficult to do so even for the few that are capable.
As a result, the industry has been flooded with competitive gaming platforms, which focus on organising small-scale esports tournaments with real-money prizes. Thousands of such competitions are being hosted daily on various competitive gaming platforms. That’s where we come in, we want to be the bridge to help the casual player get noticed.
