Panelist: John Yoon

Moving past the clichéd discussions of the legitimacy of eSports as bona fide competition, this panel’s theme shifts the attention from what eSports is to what eSports can accomplish. Shifting from the competitive game to the cooperative society, this panel will discuss the state and the role of eSports in our communities, both large and small. As competitive gaming gains more traction within mainstream culture, what can eSports as a growing industry do in terms of building community, both online and offline? Various levels of community have blossomed ranging from grassroots competitions, collegiate level play, and professional organized play. What should these strata of our industry do to further their growth and foster meaningful community engagement for the future? Do players, fans, organizations, and administrators have any responsibility in shaping how this industry develops? What roles do these actors currently hold and what roles should they hold going forward? As eSports grows, there are increasing concerns about fostering inclusivity and representation in the scene, how should this be done? Who should be responsible? Finally, as eSports cements itself as a mainstay of popular culture, there will be more and more interaction with other communities, like academia. Are these merely growing pains for an inchoate industry or should we openly embrace the exportation of eSports? This panel hopes to have a free and open conversation about these questions and more.
