I went to see the games today!
Thanks to the Dutch gods of esports, we got to have the European Leage of Legends Championship finals over here in Rotterdam. And I was lucky enough to have a ticket to the big games! The first ever esports event I attended, and boy was it good!
I won’t bother you with the details (wouldn’t want to spoil the results for the zero other LCS viewers in the audience), but I’ll say I’m sad to see the crowd favorite lose. Regardless, I’m glad I got to attend, it was a really cool time! Definitely makes you realize how real it all is, the still somewhat surprisingly big business of popular esports.
Cool stuff… until I missed my last train option.
