Hey guys, like I said I’m turning more towards making this a more casual blog, and when I feel like it, there’ll be an eSports post. There’s just a lot more content to draw from for casual gameplay than competitive gameplay, but mostly it’ll be me posting videos. Here’s a Miramar win with some interesting circumstances with Sam and my brother playing with us. As always, thanks for watching and remember to like, favorite, and subscribe if you’d like more, and tune in to my Twitch at Twitch.tv/Rzaney if you feel like watching some games live!

My friend group and I are gamers by heart, and the majority of us know each other in real life.

Most professional teams in eSports are starting to adopt coaches to make communication as efficient as it can be. South Korea has a leg up on the rest of the world in this regard. Their background in eSports from the Starcraft era, along with their infrastructure and cultural appeal for eSports, has come to fruition in the modern day.
So what is communication?
What are eSports (also written e-Sports, or electronic Sports) you might ask? In a nutshell, eSports refers to competitive video gaming. While many would agree this simple description doesn’t even scratch the surface, we’ll begin with using that for the purposes of this blog.
