Olympia needs e-sports / Dota – CS GO
Sports associations and politics in Germany can no longer ignore the influence of e-sports. It is time to give him the necessary acceptance.
It must have been three to four years ago when I first saw an astonishing change. When I as a Bundesday deputy discusses with school classes or pupil students in the Bundestag in Berlin, the conversation usually comes at some time on the subject of football. A few years ago one could be sure that almost every one of the youths could immediately call his favorite club. Today the answer is more and more frequent: “I look and play mainly League of Legends.” Or Dota 2. Or CS: GO.
My personal impression from the discussions with the pupils is certainly not exactly representative. But today no one can deny the size of the e-sport enthusiasm.
