ESL co-founder says the company wants to find the Michael Jordan of esports
One of ESL's co-founders says that the tournament organiser's goal over the next two decades is to find more star players in the world of esports and to find the game that "revolutionises" how we watch competitive gaming.
Speaking at a press conference celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the formation of ESL, Ralf Reichert laid out his plans for what he wants to achieve in the next 20 years. In response to a question from Florian Krebl, Reichert outlines that finding esports' next stars is important, but that finding a game-changing competitive title will also be a main focus.
"[I want to"> find the Michael Jordan of esports, because we need stars to make this [industry"> better," Reichert says in reference to the NBA legend. "And [I want to"> be involved in finding the game that revolutionises watching esports, because we're still in its infancy. Everything we're doing and playing with were originally invented to just play and not necessarily compete in.
