Traditional new year’s resolutions usually include some basic stuff about drinking more water and eating less meat and getting on the treadmill more. Those are noble causes, sure, but we’re guessing if you’re the type who pages through the Daily Dot’s esports section, you’ve got some more comprehensive ideas to reform in 2015. Don’t worry, we totally understand, we’re turning over a new leaf too. Here are our 20 esports resolutions to follow over the next 12 months.
