Friday Games @ GAMBIT - Starcraft 2

starcraft-2-logo.pngThis week Starcraft 2 players in the US are battling for fame and cash in two major tournaments, Major League Gaming: Anaheim and the US Nationals of the Starcraft 2 World Championship Series.

Since its release in 2010 Starcraft 2 has been at the forefront of the rapidly growing eSports industry. Players at the highest levels of competition are now traveling internationally to compete in tournaments and are able to support themselves financially solely from tournament winnings, streaming revenue, and sponsorship deals. eSports as a whole is expanding, with tournaments attracting upwards of a quarter of a million concurrent viewers via online video streaming services and attracting large mainstream sponsors, eager to promote their brands to the new market of eSports fans.

Come join us at 4pm in the lounge where we will be giving a primer on pro-gaming and Starcraft 2, then settling in to watch some epic matches.
