Paul "Redeye" Chaloner is probably the most prominent eSports host, who has helped to organize hundreds of e-Sport tournament. The ESports community loves Redeye for his character, charisma, and exemplary professionalism.

 And, by the way, despite the praise in the previous paragraph, mr. Redeye would hate to read through it, because of the different ways we scoured the term, commonly used for competitive gaming. According to him, the only 2 acceptable ways of writing it are “Esports” and “esports”; no capital “s”; no dashes.

Interestingly enough, Redeye discussed this on a PGL stream, check this clip out:

Is Redeye right?

Different media could provide other ways to write this “e-s-p-o-r-t-s” word. In the Twitter post, Redeye argues that it’s a collective noun, like, you know, “sports”. And in the clip, he explained that there is a normal way we write words, so “esports” shouldn’t get any special treatment.

Redeye could be wrong. As a member of our editorial team points out, Oxford dictionary says we should write “e-sports”. On the other side of the coin, words tend to change the way they are spelt over time (e.g. favorite <–> favoUrite) and these changes happen when applied by the majority of people. If prominent e-sports figures (sorry Redeye, we’re almost done here) become proponents of certain words, we’ll probably just accept them.


By the way, who the hell says or writes things like “iSports”, “V-Games” and “e-Gaming”?
