okay so I have a question

first of all I don’t watch really esports so im sorry if my questions are stupid lol

but why are everyone in every team guys? are they all male only/female only (where’s the female teams if that’s the case???) 

is it like actual sports where you don’t mix genders in teams or what

if that’s not the case then I can’t fucking believe that 8 teams doesn’t have one single girl like what the hell that can’t be the case????
