The term E-Sports refers to the field of competitive and professional structured video gaming, these gamers play the most famous game titles in a chance to win huge amounts of money. E-Sports in the recent years has skyrocketed and that is due to many reasons, however, millions of fans watch and follow these gamers all around the world, whether they attend LIVE tournaments or watch them via multiple video service sites like YouTube, Twitch etc.

Previously, I said that the competitive gaming scene has skyrocketed and one of the main reasons for that is because of the global pandemic, due to the crisis, the business world was at a massive stand still, we saw many companies and local shops forced to close down, however, the E-Sports industry was not hard impacted like other industries for example like the casino gambling sector, because so many physical casinos were shut to the outbreak of the virus, many land-based casinos were forced to shut, therefore millions of gamblers decided to register themselves onto online casinos just like the ones at casinogenie.org.

With the E-Sport industry, these gaming professionals were still able to play and compete in tournaments whilst they were at home so in reality the lockdown didn’t affect them as much.

In this article we look at the two most popular games played at E-Sporting events.


Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has been the number one game for competitive E-Sports since this tactical shooter game was made in 2010, this game has an average of 500k players within a 24 hour period. Because this game is so team based and requires good communication and team play, this shooter game is a favourite in the E-Sports sector and draws millions of viewers when this game is being played in a tournament.


League of Legends
League of Legends is ranked second, however I wouldn’t put it past Counter-Strike: Global Offensive as this game is very powerful and can draw in millions upon millions of viewers as well as a mass amount of revenue. Every year, the League of Legends universe hosts a World Championship event. As a result, the championship-winning squad earns the largest monetary prize. The $3,000,000 prize pool demonstrates the game's size.

The game was first released in 2009, but it has been updated on a regular basis since then to add new features and characters as well as improve the gameplay. This is a gigantic multi-player game in which the winner is the last team standing, a team consists of 5 players.
