In e-sport, Poland crushes. Feel it!
Poland was once a power… and still is! This time the battlefields are not vast plains, but maps in "Counter-Strike", "Starcraft" or "League of Legends". Poland was represented by the Golden Five, which won seven championship titles in CS. Poles stood on the podium of "Starcraft" dominated by Koreans and were one of the few to play in the elite Seoul leagues. Over the years, we've been at the forefront of Need for Speed and Quake. Our players still charm the world and fight in the best teams in the world.
This is the first book about Polish e-sport and its crazy history. Surprising and happening right next door. About people who have had to deal with the lack of acceptance in school, being stuck at the family table, and the warnings against wasting their lives on games. It is a story about the strength of their character, which will take you not only to the most famous e-sports arena - the Spodek Arena in Katowice, but also to district cafes at the end of the 20th century and to small game houses, where talents were born in pain, which in the future were to reach for the highest laurels.
Today, millions of fans sit down to watch the digital competition every day. What used to be a whim of a couple of nerds locked in a basement is now making headlines. A bright future ahead of e-sport, and never before told stories of Polish champions.
