YouPorn put out feelers today to see if any Dota 2, League of Legends or Hearthstone eSports teams are interested in being sponsored by the free, video-sharing porn site.
"Do we have any competitive LoL, DOTA2, or HeartStone [sic] players following us? What do you think about YouPorn sponsoring a team?" the official YouPorn Twitter account (NSFW) tweeted.
Dozens of YouPorn's Twitter followers responded with encouragement ("DO IT!"), disapproval ("hell no") and disappointment that the offer didn't extend to Blizzard Entertainment's real-time strategy game, StarCraft 2 ("No SC2? WTf...").
Dota 2, League of Legends and Hearthstone tournaments have been known to attract millions of viewers, many of whom tune in from around the world via live video streams. The League of Legends finals famously sold out the Staples Center in Los Angeles last year, with more than 10,000 people attending the tournament. The prize for first place was $1 million.
Valve's The International Dota 2 world championship is currently taking place and you can follow Polygon's coverage of the tournament.
