/ Checkpoint / Games & Hobbies / Video Games / Checkpoint Intimates: The eSports Conversation


Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context.

On this episode, it’s the Overwatch World Cup happening in Sydney, so Elliot and Ronnie talk about eSports, how the competitive landscape is going in Australia and the recent surge in popularity in watching others play video games competitively. They talk about why it’s so popular and some of the ridiculous money that can be made in the industry. On top of that, a new eSports bar is opening in Melbourne in August, which is going to increase its popularity even further.
