Over the last year we’ve heard lots of buzz here in North America about competitive E-Sports with the emergence of CGS and the continued growth of MLG.
It is common knowledge however that anything the North American gaming scene has to offer pales in comparison to what is happening in Asia. A perfect example can be seen with the recently completed Iron.Lady 2 Tournament held in Shanghai.
Sponsored by Dell and Steel Series, The Iron.Lady tournament gathers the top female professional Warcraft 3 players from around Asia to compete over three days for fame, and prizes.
The numbers a staggering to say the least, with total exposure numbers reaching 90,000,000 people (Yes that is 90 Million!) it’s obvious that North American E-Sports, even with its increased mainstream exposure, still has a long way to go before reaching the success levels seen in Asia.
Of course it never hurts when all of the gaming participants are attractive women…
