Hey, check this out: there are going to be people that don’t give a shit about competitive gaming, and never will.
Mind blowing, I know.
Occasionally, some such people are going to be members of the press, will take quotes out of context, to support a cynical narrative that’s half ego trip and half ad hominem attack.
It’s going to happen, and swarming around like wasps that just got their nest kicked every time this happens won’t make a difference.
Esports is niche. It’s growing, but it’s niche. It’s not for everyone. Get over it.
