The community in SC2 is far more dedicated to it's eSports scene. I guess DOTA and LoL are more "popular" in terms of sheer numbers, but SC2 is more "appealing" to the audience that it does have.

I have played SC and SC2 for a lot of years yet i never cared about eSports scene. In Dota 2 it was a lot more interesting. Watching a SC2 game is so boring.... when you compare it to something 5v5. Kind of like comparing Tennis to Soccer. Probably Tennis players are more dedicated but there are a lot more Soccer fans.

Tell that to the 30% of Starcraft viewers who don't even play. I bet it's in the one digits if not less for League.

I was a SC2 play but did not play ladder matches only custom maps so i would not be considered a player. Also as i got bussy with school i spend most of my free time watching Dota 2 games then play Dota 2. This is the new trend in general with these games.

I have been playing Blizzard games for 20 years...   never bothered to play Rockstar.
