Esports have never received the best reputation in my mind - I think that many people still feel as though they are mere video games that are a waste of time. This idea is putting a negative spin on the industry, and as a result many people arenâ€™t getting excited about esports like they used to.
My name is Ashley Newby and I want to put integrity back into esports and get the hype surrounding them paramount once more. During my teenage years, I happened to stumble across a Street Fighter tournament online and I was hooked.
From that day, I have kept up with and watched many tournaments including Valorant, Super Smash Bros, and League of Legends. I even got to compete in my first one earlier this year!
Esports are not bad for you and they shouldnâ€™t be treated as such, as itâ€™s creating a stigma around the industry. Just like people enjoy watching and playing football, esports is a healthy competitive hobby that many people would enjoy if they knew what it was and werenâ€™t worried about the backlash from their peers.
To try and combat some of this stigma and get people excited about esports again, I created this website where I will be sharing things such as strategies, competitive statistics, and esports FAQs with you all.
I would love to think that my website has helped more people find their love of esports and even give them the courage to compete in a tournament of their own! Who knows, maybe Iâ€™ll see you on the playing field sometime?
