    Traffic is only a portion of the value. "Sports" as a subject matter carries a large part of the value.

    eSports is huge now. Dota 2 alone has a prize pool of $20M for just one tournament and they have a bunch of tournaments every year with prize ranging from $100k-$2M. Then there's CS:Go, Overwatch, Starcraft, League Of Legends, and so on. So, I'm not really surprised.

    eSports becomes huge and for me domain eSports.net was sold for cheap. eSports.com is under construction and I hope will be live asap.
    I am from Poland and I see evolution of ESports events Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice since 11 years.

    You have to know that "ProGamer" does not have that much value as "gamer" or "gaming" is something that some persons still think is a waste of time.
    But "Sports" or better yet "eSports" is something else as tournaments have real money rewards now and are much more appreciated.

    Edit: I do enjoy a game when I have the time though.

    You say not much value, I've been offered $25,000. Obviously holding out for a better offer.

    That would be like saying athletes.com holds no value.

    Yes you got a good one there. Not sure where Branko's coming from in his thinking.

    It just sounds like he's not familiar with the market. I hear this kind of thing a lot.

    ProGamer is a very very good name. Mid 5 figures upwards IMO.

    I just feel "progamer" is a general term slaped on a keyboard or a monitor brand as a sidenote, not a brand. Only if there is a company that makes it into a brand and then gives a better offer, or if there was a big market for proffesional players. Though 25k was nice offer, maybe I'm older so I don't belive that proffesional gamers will have a market like soccer or basketball players in next 20 years.
    Yes there is esports evolving but its like one club in every major city. Soccer and basketball have 10-20 clubs in every major city with different league strength.

    I appreciate what you're saying in regards to eSports, but it's a little misguided.

    eSports is still in it's infancy, and it's already been projected to overtake the NFL in regards to revenues. Within 5-10 years I'm sure we'll see that happen. European Football (Soccer) is a different beast, but I can see it being their main competitor in the future with regards to market share.

    Remember - eSports is the fastest growing spectator sport on the planet, with incredible growth year-on-year. Major cities don't have one team, they have many many teams. The players are making incredible salaries. And competition prize funds are astonishing. This has all the trademarks of a growth industry.
