Created by The Arena Group and Gaud-Hammer Gaming Group, the new media platform is dedicated to providing exclusive and in-depth coverage of esports including analysis, player and team interviews as well as a behind-the-scenes look at some of the biggest gaming tournaments.

There’s no better time to get into video games and participate in esports tournaments but if you’re unsure which game to play, you should be playing Dota 2 in order to make the most money.
