What is esports?

Esports is a video game-based sport, most commonly taking the form of a collaborative, organized multiplayer competition. Games are played upon high-powered gaming computers, with games from many genres, including real-time strategy, fighting, first-person shooter (FPS), and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). The number of players per team is typically dictated by the game being played.
