It does not take a genius to realise the eSports industry is snowballing. It has moved from being a garage hobby to a full-fledged sport, complete with international tournaments and huge prizes. But that’s not the best part. eSport has a bright future as it is not a summer activity; it does not need to compete with football or rugby for attention. That said, here are the top three eSports games in 2020.
Dota 2 has risen through the ranks to become one of the most popular free Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games on the planet. Some say it is easy to learn and hard to master, which gives it an edge over the competition. Players get to choose between 100 playable heroes to bring to the battlefield, with each having unique abilities and skills. That, combined with insane cash pots, makes it worthwhile.
CS: GO was the most popular game from 2012 until Dota 2 came along. It is famous for being a fast-paced PC game and the most competitive option in 2019. It boasts of having an established game plot, an active community, and million-dollar leagues. However, the game is starting to show signs of ageing when compared to newer games such as Overwatch. But in a recent statement, the CS: GO development team promised players they will be giving the game a new look in 2020.
Overwatch is a brilliant combination of MOBA and FPS genres, making it an action-packed environment like no other. Though some people might think the game is “declining,” statistics say otherwise. Every time they have competitive days, the viewership hovers around 100K. That makes it a valuable asset to Blizzard Entertainment. Just like any other game of this magnitude, Overwatch has its fair share of technical issues. But that has not stopped people from taking the plunge.
