How Online Game Forums Are Driving eSports Players And Producers Alike

On the internet, there are chat rooms and discussion forums for everything you can think of. Now, before you pick that apart and find a topic as yet unchartered or untabled in the virtual keyboard world, I am sure there is the odd subject that does not have a chat room or forum. Now that we have that disclaimer out of the way, I restate, there is a chat room or forum for almost anything you can think of - from the latest entertainment news to how to fix internet connections, how to bake the best cakes, to which cars offer the best miles per gallon. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.

When it comes to the world of online games, the internet is awash with forums and chat rooms. Some are game-specific; some are more general. Some are about tactics for Counter-Strike 2, others may be about the best route for maps on Call of Duty, or how to do well in League of Legends. Such is the popularity of esports!

And it’s not just for players, either: the internet is absolutely brimming with advice for audiences and bettors as well. If you’ve ever considered getting into the world of esports betting, you can rest assured that you’ll find everything you could ever need in the online space, from historic wins, favoured players, most humiliating losses, best moments, and more - and you’ll also find forums about which esports betting sitesmay give you the most favourable odds for any given competition or tournament, so if you’re ready to take a flutter, you know exactly where to go.

So, what are these forums all about and what is their purpose? Well, that in itself is a difficult question to answer. If we accept the indisputable fact that esports are loved by millions around the globe and, on a commercial side, represent a multi-billion-dollar industry, it should come as no surprise that they engender such passion and conversation online. For players, game creators, and companies that produce esports games, these forums can be immensely powerful, so let’s see why that may be.

Tips, Tricks, Feedback and Fan Forums: Esports Is a Hot Topic

Players who love esports take the art of the game very seriously. This is evidenced in everything from million-dollar prize pot tournaments to the more casual global competitions and contests that go on daily, weekly, and annually among players. Becoming the best of the best is a constant quest for players. For some, this is achieved by pure ability, and others look in chat rooms for tips about how this apex can be reached, and how to improve their own gameplay.

Think of any game that comes under the banner of esports, that multiplayer format that dominates the gaming space, and you will soon uncover a profusion of community-based discussion sites, platforms, and online destinations. Whether it is a Diablo III community board or a Counter-Strike 2 forum, a Call of Duty tips and tricks discussion, or a League of Legends open discussion, fan forums set the internet on fire, such is their popularity and number. Though the forums are often discussing pointers for tips and tricks among esports gamers, they also provide a valuable service for game creators and companies.

As largely uncensored spaces, the discussions and content around games often include chats about what both experienced and new players love and hate about games, what improvements they may wish for, or what they think the next iteration of a particular game may be best served by. This may seem like informal feedback, but with esports creators always in competition mode, anything that helps them get ahead of competitors and deliver what players want is invaluable, wherever it comes from.

For Esports Enthusiasts, Online Communities Are About Global Connections

One of the main reasons esports has become a commercially successful industry and genuine global phenomenon is the way it has brought gaming devotees together within a community. In the days before the internet, playing games was more solitary, and certainly not global. Today, esports are played around the clock, around the world, by people of all ages and nationalities, all enjoying the community-based fun of their shared passion. It is, to put it simply, truly impressive and incredibly powerful.

With an estimated global esports community of players of over 530 million and rising, and with esports companies becoming ever more valuable as businesses, global connections are constantly being created. If you ask any esports enthusiast, they are likely to tell you first how much they love their particular chosen game or games but, hot on the heels of that, they will likely talk about how much they love the ability to play against and discuss gaming with other people around the world. This in itself shows the power of esports in a social and community sense.
