Welcome to Compete, a joint venture between Deadspin and Kotaku dedicated to covering the best, worst, dumbest, most thrilling, most interesting, and, generally, the most stupefying—in the better and worse senses of the word—in esports and competitive gaming. We’re just getting started here, but hope to make this a…

Deadspin turns 10 years old today; we’re proud of what our site has done, even though we’ll look like self-aggrandizing assholes if we talk about it. It’s hard, when you’re working here every day, to think of the stories that have really stood out, or stood in for other ones that stood out, so we asked the editors of…
I was terrified my first night writing for Deadspin. I wanted direction: somebody to tell me what to write about, how to write about it, and then to edit it when I was done.
