I like to watch Starcraft II games, what other games should I be following, and how do I get up to speed?

I've begun to watch eSports recently (basically, competitive video game matches), and found them really interesting. For Starcraft II, I have learned how enjoy being a spectator, but it took a lot of effort: I had to play the game, gradually figure out who was worth watching, identify the right YouTube channels, learn the lingo, etc. What other competitive mutliplayer games are worth watching, and how do I get into them?

Specifically, I would be really interested in well-written guides for spectators (like this one
for Starcraft II) and lists of great matches like this one
(which means not just interesting to watch, but also well narrated).
I am pretty agnostic on the actual game: Defense of the Ancients, Team Fortress, whatever - it should be fun to watch and follow without being a complete expert. Any ideas?
