In the world of eSports, it's hard for a game to be – and stay – on top.
One major difference between eSports and real sports” is that the latter stays remarkably static. People don't often jump ship from watching football to baseball after a few years because they get bored – in fact, they may watch both of these at once. However in eSports, the viewer is oftentimes both an active player as well as a spectator. The rate of turnover in regards to games is extremely quick, and as a result, we often see games that were once juggernauts of the industry fall to pieces. This is the case for StarCraft.
