TOP eSports Games

Most popular video games, tournaments and teams

As we have seen previously, titles like Quake, Counter Strike, Street Fighter or FIFA were the first video games that fed the eSports competitions.

Today these are the most popular games that feed the main tournaments, what we see below.

League of Legends (LoL)

The popular LoL is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena in English), in which players choose a certain fantasy character called “champion” and face each other on a map between teams of 5 (out of 3 sometimes) members with the objective to destroy the base of the enemy.

Long the most popular of the eSports.

DoTA 2

Another MOBA, in which we will need to have access to a free account of the popular online video game service Steam to play. Similar in nature to the LoL, it presents more complex game mechanics, which makes it the favorite of the so-called hardcore gamers.

Starcraft 2

All a classic, that with the arrival of a new expansion has recovered the tone and wants to aspire to the throne of the eSports again.

In the game we interpret a race to choice (Zerg, Terran and Protoss) that must face the others to obtain the supremacy.

Call Of Duty

In this case we speak of an FPS where we interpret modern soldiers who must face in teams to capture the flag of their opponent.

A true war experience.

FIFA

The closest thing to real soccer in video games, the FIFA saga of Electronic Arts is a classic that brings all the excitement of sports, stars and real football competition to the terrain of eSports.

World Of Tanks

In this case, as its name suggests, what we will do is control a historical tank and face other teams that also handle these armored monsters.

Hearthstone: Do you know the Magic: the Gathering cards? This would be an approach taken to eSports.

We use virtual cards to face other rivals combining skill, spells and strategy. Very addictive and with a very fast learning curve that does not reduce complexity.

At the level of tournaments and eSports championships, there are numerous examples in the world, from the League of Legends World Championship, World Cyber Games, Major League Gaming Intel Extreme Masters…

Or the most recent World Series Of Video Games and Championship Gaming Series.

In addition, we will also find specific events associated with video game and trademark fairs and, already speaking at a local level, initiatives such as the Professional Videogame League (LVP).
