Actually, the Church actively suppressed the advancement of science because it was seen as the "devil's work", and would try scientists by "God's judgement". They would boil the hand of a scientist is vats of hot water, and if it healed well enough in three days time, they were set free. If it did not, they were executed.
Other scientists were simply forced to renounce their trade under threats of the Church.
Sooo... yeah.

Did you get your history lessons from the under the rock textbook? Seriously I'm not Christian anymore, but for Christs sake you have to accept the fact that the Catholic church is not the reason for every plight in history. Also like cheezbrgr said most early scientists in Europe were within the Catholic Church, they thought that by better understanding how the world worked they could better understand their God and in turn how to server him better. Gregor Mendel was the father of modern genetics and he was a Catholic priest. Also many texts from ancient roman civilization were preserved by Catholic monks many of them Irish.

Seriously pull your head out of your ass, trim your neckbeard, and read some goddamn books.

biology was pretty much the only science that was prohibited as it required using dead bodies. engineering, astronomy (after the telescope), were left alone.

Well last time we weren't hostile to Christians, the Christian Dark Ages happened.

Fun fact to add to all this: The big bang theory was made by a Catholic priest.

the only way Christianity contributed to the dark ages was because for some reason, many Romans decided it wasn't right to slaughter the Germanic peoples as many were converting to Christianity in the 300s. the weakness they showed allowed the germans to grow stronger and gain power within rome itself, causing the fall of rome.

the "Christian" dark ages were not caused by christianity. in fact the christian church is what preserved the old texts and roman knowledge that would bring us out of the dark ages. in addition the dark ages was caused by the fall of the roman empire and the resulting chaos as the various peoples all fought over what was left. the kings we know today were in fact warlords who gave absolutely no shits about science as is was better to be worried about building armies and fighting. Also, the idea that the church stopped the development of knowledge is bullshit. all those researchers who are the forefathers of the modern world lived well within the grasp of the church and if they had been interested in killing them it would have been literally no effort. is wasn't until the excess land and food caused by the massive population drop from the plague and the money the italians were making from trade allowed the europeans to begin expanding their knowledge as they were no longer using all their time surviving.

Many (most?) of the professional eSports are team based, as well. They've got brands, jerseys, merchandise, player stats and everything. I might say it's even easier to become attached to an eSports player because of how much you can follow them outside of professional events via online streaming.

Same reason any other sport has an audience. People are entertained by other people who can do things better than them.

If you don't think what they're doing is remarkable, it's probably because you don't know enough about the sport. You probably have a similar instinct towards, say, professional cricket, but that's still an extremely popular spectator sport.
User avatar #310 - cheezbrgr (10/21/2014) [-]
for example, (to my thought process) major sports in the US are so successful because they have created a following behind the team. people feel like a part of the team, they dress up, learn all the player stats. idk i just feel like gaming is to individualistic. but obviously it has a following regardless.

Well cmon

It shouldn't be hard to differentiate between enjoying something and displaying it in public
I don't wear my two MLP shirts in public unless I expressly mean to let people know what I like

and I have as of yet failed to conceive of a reason to do that
