  1. I feel like this article fails to mention what a “Cyber Sportsman” or what “cybersports” even is, expecting that the reader should know before reading this article. Same goes with the “Gamification in Gaming” article which fails to explain the term “gamification.”

    And honestly, searching the term “cyber sportsman”, I can’t find any meaningful results. And searching “cybersports” in a search engine shows various results from online sports games to esports, so no meaningful results there, so it would have definitely been nice to have those explained in the introduction of the article.
