A top ten chess grandmaster has compared the act of watching esports to the act of watching chess. In an interview with Chess24, Alexander Grischuk said that despite his best efforts, he once watched the championship for Dota 2 and “didn’t understand a thing.”

“Instead I got an idea of how it is for people to watch chess,” he said, “of course, the computer can tell you who has a winning position, but it’s only really interesting for a few thousand people, who have a certain level of knowledge and skills.” In short, Grischuk was saying, the game is only really interesting if you understand how the game is being played.
