The Celebrity Millionaires of Competitive Gaming (Full Length)




Today, there are more people in the world who play League of Legends than there are people who live in France. We wanted to look inside this rapidly expanding world of competitive gaming, so VICE host Matt Shea flew to South Korea, a country where so-called “eSports” can either make you rich and famous or land you in rehab.

    Vice didn't do their research as in 2014 Dota TI price pool was $10,700,00, The winner got $5mil, 2nd place was $1.4mil, 3rd was just over $1mil. Coming 3rd you get $1mil! LOL is nothing compares to DOTA2. Pleased do your research next time!

    i think the doc is not bad if u see it from an outside perspective. just imagine being someone who never played a game before then u get a good look at it and i think if they choose someone who is realy intog gaming as a guide for the documentary it might have been much harder to understand for outsiders as gamers realy got some own language. hell yes when i talk about games none of my friends who dont play understands a thing.

    1:00:45 my thoughts exactly! Gaming is my main hobby and has been for nearly 3 decades now, but even I find the idea of going to a stadium to watch others play video games quite baffling and just going too far lol
    The pomp and celebrity has taken over the actual gaming at that point.

    "The only other place to see them do that was at a Coldplay concert…" Why am I not surprised…

    As much as I love talking with my clan and I'd like to think we know parts of each others life's and are sympathetic to each other I'd soon get sick of it after 88 hours a week, I can easily work 72 hours in a physical job and a couple of hours cash in hand after my shift every day but I get human contact and I'm not isolated watching a screen all day, this can't be good for you

    because gaming is a waste of time. u learn nothing real. u learn only gaming and how fast to push buttons. i used to like games when i was a kid but then i realized i would like to expierence real life by traveling and seeing things with my own eyes, going to college and learning about history, engineering and physics, space and astro psychics. the universe is an amazing place and I enjoy learning my place in it and seeing where we can go in the future.

    this "reporter" was so closed-minded….and for some reason unable to listen….totally failing to understand…..unable to let go of his biased ego….sad.
    Also…everyone knows who imagine dragons are and that's because they're kickass….amazing how much escapes his sheltered mind

    Part of a good interviewer is one who can hold a neutral position. That's why they chose this guy to do the interview. Go back to your games little kids.

    With all the people in the world that play LoL, you found probably the only person that have never heard of this mass phenomenon videogame.

    Boring, superficial and inconclusive video.

    Good job VICE!

    Kids playing games, and being todays "gods, idols, celebrities" etc., earning that much money, just as other youtubers, and streamers, shows how low did the mankind fall. Its a shame I was born in these times, a shame, and it only gets worse… Also, there is no esport, there is sports, and retards clicking 24/7 thinking they are sportsmans, they arent, and never will be, they will be fucking clicker morons to the day, they die.

    the presenter was terrible, disrespected the culture a good few times and has the worse accent/voice I've ever heard. Please don't have this guy represent your gaming content again. Thanks
