Welcome to AFK Gaming’s first ever premium content bundle. Through a collection of seven articles, we aim to give you data, insight and informed opinions about the esports industry, largely focused on India. Each piece has been researched and written by our team of experienced writers, supported by data and insights from some of the most authoritative esports industry experts in South Asia.
By reading these articles, you will gain a deep understanding of important industry topics, along with thought-provoking perspectives on questions such as:
What was the total prize money in Indian esports in 2020? Who is the largest esports event organizer in India?
How and why did Dota 2 esports die in India?
How do esports teams make money? How does one make a pro career in Indian esports?
How much do esports casters earn and why do they make so little compared to traditional sports commentators?
Are Indian real-money gaming companies re-defining the meaning of the word “esports” itself? Will esports be banned in the country?
Who is this bundle for?
Anyone that wants to learn about the esports industry, with an added focus on India and South Asia. This includes students looking to explore a career in esports, those looking to switch jobs within esports, business managers, team owners, investors, aspiring pro players and even commentators.
I’m looking to become a professional esports commentator/player. Will this help me?
In addition to understanding the industry as a whole, there are articles specifically addressing the journey from bedroom to stadium for esports players and commentators.
Will this help me get a job in the esports industry?
These articles are meant to give you deep insights and exclusive data about the business of esports. Simply reading them won’t guarantee you a job, however it should give you the knowledge and perspective needed to make better decisions and to understand the business models of the companies that you are applying to.
Why do I have to pay for this content?
The ad-driven media model is broken. Publishers like us are made to value pageviews above everything else, often at the cost of reader trust. This leads to misinformation and click-bait content instead of well researched long form stories. When readers pay, our writers can focus on quality instead of quantity.
How much does it cost?
The bundle is priced at $10 (Includes 7 articles in total).
How will the articles be sent to me?
Once you make the payment, the articles will be emailed to you as a collection of PDFs.
Can I forward the articles to my friends and colleagues after I have paid?
We would prefer if you shared the link to this page instead so that they can buy the bundle as well.
I purchased the bundle but haven’t received the articles on email.
