Since this is a Q&A site that focuses on gaming I've always wondered whether or not questions about professional gaming are on topic. Now I'm not talking about the "Pro Gamers" with a high ranking in a certain game but more about people that really make a living out of gaming (gaming = playing games. I'm not talking about concepts and development which is obviously off-topic). This could be about streaming/Let's Plays, fan merchandise, tournaments, sponsorship or even just game-testing.
Some example questions:
- "How can I participate in the Starcraft 2 World Championship" (Tournaments)
- "What can I do to make my videos more interesting for the mainstream" (Entertainment)
- "On which gameplay aspect should I take a closer look in this Call of Duty alpha?" (Game-testing)
- "I want to participate in the LCS. How do I find a good sponsor for my League of Legends team?" (Sponsorship)
Of course I know that professional gaming isn't a common job but with E-sports gaining more and more popularity the scene is growing.
