The Leaderboard: The week in esports
Major League Gaming recently announced it will partner with the JoinDOTA community organization to launch a Dota 2 league next year with nearly half a million dollars guaranteed in prize money. In this week's edition of The Leaderboard, we discuss the implications of the decision, both for Major League Gaming and for the players in other games who already rely upon the league for their income as professional gamers.
We also touch on The Summit 2, the Intel Extreme Masters tour stop in San Jose, Calif., and the latest ESEA global final. Finally, the crew consider the potential effects of Capcom choosing to make Street Fighter 5 exclusive among consoles to the PlayStation 4.
