Dire Strait's "Money for Nothin'" came to mind when I read this article.

"That ain't workin', that's the way to do it. Ya play Overwatch in a professional league...."

(If you don't know the song, what have you been doing with your life? One of the greatest guitar riffs ever, man....)

Blizzard is hiring Overwatch players - yes, players - to participate in professional esports leagues. Those who make the cut will have to sign to a one-year contract, and receive a salary of $50,000. On top of that, they will receive health and retirement benefits.

I think this is just crazy what this world is coming to. Play video games - and not be a software developer - and receive a salary for it? Well, if there's an audience for it....

Ask Amoeba is now officially defunct. Sorry :(

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.

Esports do certainly seem to be getting bigger.
Be part of the answer, not part of the problem.
