Mike Morhaime at the 7th MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference

Rod “Slasher” Breslau moderates an eSports Explosion panel with Blizzard Entertainment CEO Mike Morhaime, Sundance DiGiovanni, Kevin Lin, and Daryl Morey.

One of the questions was how the growth has been for eSports since 2011 to 2013 compared with previous years. Twitch has seen over 13 million uniques nowadays compared with the 8 million uniques back in 2011. Women viewers have increased too.
