If we consider Hearthstone an "Esport" but not physical board and card games, doesn't that make a joke of the Esport being a sport thing to begin with.
Hearthstone is very much a bug ESport and is growing at a crazy rate.. The split is just because of how things have been for a long time and I'm sure it would take one hosting company to change it for the rest to simply follow. It is quite a new issue in of itself really. The whole ESport thing is no joke either its simply a term the pyhical space does the exact same in its tournaments seen with the likes of Yu GI oh, Magic and Chess etc.
