Since when does esport exist?
This question is pretty hard to answer because it depends on the definition when a computer game becomes esport. Most people will agree that Counter Strike and World of Warcraft were the first who offered enough competition amongst its players to consider them as esport, but a lot of other games have contributed to the current boom of esport. The biggest community in the world of esport and the most popular game by far is held by League of Legends with more than 10 million active players each day (as in 2013).
Who wrote the title song of the LoL World Championship 2012?

How old do i have to be to place a bet on esport?
