This is a random idea I had. HotHardware could sponsor a CS:GO/ Esports team. I think this would be a awesome idea. What do you think guys?

I'm not a big fan of the eSports yet but I think it would be pretty cool if they could swing it.

The problem with any esports team is that it is almost guaranteed to be a money losing proposition for years. Even the first year will be money losing even if you have a really good team. It's only with multiple wins and then sponsorships that an esports team can become break even or even make money. That's an issue for anyone including big companies.

How would that work? They would have to front a lot of bills.

Absolutely not, it would be great for some of the gamers who lurk here, like me! 😃
