How to Watch eSports Events At Home.
News sites are great for catching up on and following events, but if you want to get truly involved, you need to watch these events live! If you aren’t sure how to do that, here are the three main sites you need to know about.
Most tournaments are streamed here for free so if you aren’t sure where an event is being streamed, there’s a good chance it’ll be on Twitch. You can also browse by games and catch the odd event happening here and there.
Azubu has suffered a lot of growing pains over the years, never really able to differentiate itself from Twitch in a way that mattered. The ultimate goal has always been to be “the esports streaming site” but due to difficulties in reaching critical mass, it’s always been “that other streaming site”.
That being said, if you want to watch all kinds of esports — not just the top-tier majors but also the mid-tier minors — then Azubu is the best place for it. The mobile app is also pretty useful for watching on the go.
MLG, or Major League Gaming, is an esports organization that specializes in major tournaments and offers some of the best competitions today. Normally you can watch these events on other sites, especially Twitch, but MLG has its own live player and chat in case you don’t like Twitch.
The downside is that you can only watch MLG events with the MLG player.
