In our continuing series on Esports, we dig into the three major game genres, MOBA (multiplayer battler arenas), Sports, FPS (first person shooters), the game, objectives, events, prize pools, players and team owners, some of whom are sports celebrities like Alex Rodriguez and Shaquille O’Neal. Many Esport team owners are also involved with the ownership of National Football League (NFL) and National Basketball Association (NBA) teams. Formula 1 even created its own league, in which real world pro race car drivers competed in television simulations.
