Esports are a culture that has grown up around gaming where gamers compete at various games in professional style events (often for money).
Some examples of these organizations:
The list goes on.
Would questions related to these topics be appropriate for gaming.se?
Example questions might be:
- "What is MLG's policy on macro keyboards?"
- "What is a good way to become a professional Starcraft Player?"
- "What leagues exist for professional play in Heroes of Newerth?"
- "Where can someone find the latest OSL replays?"
As you can see, none of these questions are actually about video games, but they are tangentially related. I'm not advocating the inclusion of esports in gaming.se, but I can't see esports being large enough for its own se or fitting in with a sports.se. While the questions don't seem gaming to me, I can't think of a potential se that would be more appropriate.
