The current eSports niche seems to be an ever growing area as more current generation video game enthusiasts enter from adolescence into adulthood. A problem with current eSports is that many games: Rainbow 6, CS:GO, League of Legends, Starcraft, etc; have a strong barrier to entry for the general public in the sense that they require at the very least a few hours of prior game knowledge to even keep up with what is on the screen. For many layman, this barrier to entry is just not worth the end product of an eSports broadcast. I propose that in the future to balance the interest of the current audience, and the induction of new audiences that may not understand the basic points of said games, that a brief but thorough guide be displayed and discussed before every match starts, possibly whilst loading into the game. This would allow new audiences to be able to enjoy the broadcast and eliminate the basic knowledge barrier.
