Title. Will it become a big market like soccer or nba? It seems a quite interesting market what do you think guys? Or is it just a short term hype?

It would be highly dependent on whether advertisers/sponsors continue pouring cash into it.

The main thing going for it currently, is that the "eyes" watching esports appears to be heavily concentrated in the 18-30 age demographic which advertisers are highly interested in. (IIRC the 18-49 demographic is what television ratings will command a premium advertising rate in proportion).

Yeah true. But now the current problem is that there are so many games. There is no clear structure like soccer or nba. You have different games different tournaments etc. So its chaotic to follow.
