Essendon + Abyss = esports!

I reckon you’re crossing in to “■■■■” territory here yourself.


#183

Yeah I may have gotten a bit worked up. Sorry.


#184

Not my cup of tea, but esports audience numbers dwarf anything AFL can muster up. Even live audiences are massive. If this helps with brand recognition, and let’s hope it does, good on the club for thinking outside the square (or should I say box).


#185

Is esports anything like pacman or space invaders?


#186

It happens sometimes.


#187

Ok so I get that it is video gaming which isn’t a real sport (otherwise im in the wrong industry. I’ve always known it as a hobby).

But how are we going to link it to an actual sport club? Since most video games are primarily about only single player status and results over team results.


#188

You clearly haven’t played MMO.

There’s huge team aspect to gaming, in fact it’s vital.


#189

Totally excited, I’ve played a little lol, but haven’t played for ages. I sucked at the game but enjoyed it nonetheless. I’m right into coc (clash of clans), and quite often watch videos of teams playing against each other.


#190

Yeah i don’t get it either but then again my old man could never understand why i played video games.

I tjink I’m turning into my old man

Catherine: The current moves afoot in the US to strike down regulations banning sports betting are forecast to have implications for Esport.
Is our acquisition connected to sports betting.?


#192

How good was that game, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=589Dom2BXMY


#193

Not that I am aware of. In fact the club’s philosophy is to find alternate streams of revenue


#194

The only knowledge I have of video games the past decade is the background music of SKYRIM @Riolio

Thanks . The EFC has signed up to the Victorian Government Responsible Gambling Charter, refusing to accept sponsorship from betting companies.
I was just wondering if Abyss has any such sponsorship.


#196

The club, as far as I’m aware, will not be partnering with any online gambling agency, as we have not done for 2 years.

I may be of assistance.
'Cause.

Ever since I was a young boy,
I played the silver ball.
From Pacoe down to Brighton,
I musta played 'em all.
'N theyd never seen nuffing like me,
In any amusement hall.
I’ma a deft, one-eyed Bomber kid,
That sure plays mean pin ball.

I’d stand like a statue,
And stare at the machine.
Wouldn’t give a bumper,
Don’t know what Esport means,
Don’t have no intuition,
The penny’s yet to fall
This deft one-eyed Bomber kid,
Sure plays no E sport.

I’m a pin ball wizard,
There has got to be a twist.
I’ve not an Esport gizzard,
May just go and get p!ssed.

How do ya think they do it? I don’t know.
And why am I no good?

See me, feel me, touch me, heal me,
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me,
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me,
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me, heal me.

Sorry Pete Townshend… Who?

Most online I’ve played are CoD style and NBA 2k
