Quick, when you hear eSports coverage, what sources come to mind? Team Liquid? Gosugamers? How about Yahoo? That's right, eSports fans can party like its 1999 on the newly launched Yahoo eSports portal. Buoyed by the growth of streaming services like Twitch.tv and multi-million dollar tournament prize pools, eSports revenues are expected to reach $2 billion annually by 2018. That sort of money was bound to attract mainstream stream attention eventually.

Yahoo joins other traditional sports media companies like ESPN which have jumped into eSports coverage. While Yahoo is mainly known for its now obsolete search engine and email client, the company still operates several successful niche portals including Yahoo Finance and Yahoo Sports. The Yahoo portal is still very new, but already looks very impressive. The scope of coverage seems broad with Counter-Strike Global Offensive, Dota 2, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, and Street Fight V getting header coverage.

Yahoo's move follows Activision Blizzard's purchase of Major League Gaming (MLG) earlier this year. The site promises to offer news, analysis, live commentary, and game strategies. Check out the quality of coverage yourself on the official portal, to view the embedded intro video below:
