Esports as a whole have seen exponential growth, going from Asian Games inclusion to multi-million dollar prize pools at competitions like Gamers8. A career in it requires severe dedication from the players themselves, despite the fact that it seems glamorous from the outside (which it is).They adhere to rigid schedules, must spend a lot of time away from friends and family, and most importantly, they follow a training regimen, much as a sports player would.
