"Get off the grass and stop playing football!" Surely not the words of a responsible parent but as the prize purses for gaming tournaments such as Defense of the Ancients at $20 million exceed that of major sport competitions the search for gaming talent in so called 'esports' has exploded as the returns young gamers can make become increasingly attractive.
