  • Professional, competitive video game playing—the phenomenon known as esports—has seen double digit growth for much of the past decade. With a massive following, many say it will soon become an official Olympic event. Throughout the U.S., high schools are launching competitive gaming clubs, and even some colleges are offering scholarships to top players.

    It’s a dream come true for professional esports players—traveling the world and paid salaries to play video games full time for a living.

    But as money continues to pour into the industry, the pressure on these young pros—many still in their teens—is leading to early burnout from high stress, repetitive stress injuries, and grueling practice schedules.

    In this episode of CBSN Originals, we follow pro esports players Doublelift (League of Legends) and Space (Overwatch) as they compete for glory, get an inside look at what it takes to be pro, and explore the risks many are taking to stay at the top.

    Too bad I’m terrible at esport game genres. Shooters and strategy games aren’t my thing, esports should show some love to the gaming swordsmen something along the lines of hack n slash, monster hunter, and darksouls.

    Without a doubt League of Legends it's the king of E-Sports. I'ts like the soccer or football of gaming. Of course I'm not sayong the rest are bad or anything like that. It's just that League has manage to open wide the gates for E-sports in general.

I am proud of my esports career and now when i am at early 30's if someone ask me whether i will do what i did with my career. I will say "Every single time".

    These ween balls need to get some more muscle mass and rest more. I bet they could do fine on 4 to 5 days a week. Mandatory days off. Also taking weeks off to totally reset. Longevity is key

    So much snark in the comments. This was a great documentary, a really respectful and faithful representation of esports. The gamer mom part was really funny and stupid tho

    What are some top 5 teams across the big games where their players don’t live together? I’m really curious about this, whether or not “living together” is conducive to winning.
