The popularity of eSports is growing at an incredible rate with an ever-increasing number of disciplines, gamers, spectators and investment in the field. Developers are regularly releasing new releases, continuously upgrading those that have already seen the light of day. Among the most popular games for esports betting Vulkan today stand out the following.
Dota 2 is an improved version of its predecessor – DotA. This is a fantasy game in which players find themselves on a map with two opposing sides, for each of which five people.
Everyone chooses a hero and develops him or her within the same game to achieve the main goal of destroying the enemy’s main building. The biggest tournaments are held on Dota 2 Vulkan Bet.
It may come as a surprise to some of you, but one of the oldest eSports disciplines from Blizzard Entertainment continues to hold its position at the top even after all these years. StarCraft is popular both in and outside of Korea, with over 300 tournaments this year.
Only CS:GO has a larger number (562), with over $2,000,000 in SCII championships. And IEM Katowice 2021 offered half a million dollars in prize money.
Fortnite is a shooter game that has 100 players stranded on an island from which only one or two will escape if the game is played as a team. Epic Games has been active in promoting cybersports and held a tournament in 2019 with a total prize pool of almost $10 million.
Fortnite World Cup
A huge cup, with nearly $10 million in prize money in 2019, split between several disciplines including creativity, single-player and team play, and a separate charity tournament. It wasn’t held in 2020 due to the coronavirus, but most expect the prize pool to be even bigger next year.
Hearthstone is a card strategy game from Blizzard. The game is based on the Warcraft universe because in this discipline the ping is not important at all and players from different regions can easily fight each other online. Which they did: the GrandMasters and the World Championship took place on a pre-scheduled date and attracted thousands of spectators.
The main disadvantage of Hearthstone remains that the game is still poorly adapted for eSports because of the randomness. But this does not prevent the discipline from maintaining its position, new faces are constantly appearing in major competitions, and HS itself is constantly changing due to the events and additions. But worthy competitors in the genre at the game have not appeared.
Call of Duty (COD)
CoD attracts a certain interest especially in America, where there is a league on MW. And Warzone championships in the future will be able to compete with PUBG and even Fortnite, according to experts.
The developers are delighted with the attention of gamers and eSports fans. They have collected the best mechanics from other battle royale games, introduced a new map and fixed bugs.
