Trends in ESL Games – What Are the Future Of Esports?
Esport is a sort of international competition with video games as the main theme. Esport often takes the form of multiplayer, competitive video game competitions, especially between international teams, either individually or as representatives of their countries. Video game competitions are becoming increasingly popular in many parts of the world. There are numerous well-known and large international tournament series, including the Electronic Sports Games (ESGC) and the Electronic Arena. E-sports also refers to electronic sports betting.
The most watched and popular of the esport tournaments are the World Series of Esports, the finals of which are telecasted live on television. In contrast to the official game modes, there are several freeroll tournaments and open brackets in which players choose their characters and select their teams from a pool of players provided by the game developer. Players can practice and improve their skills in an environment with friendly and supportive teammates. There is a vast range of equipment and clothing available for the players, and the competitive game modes are a fun, exciting way to enjoy the game and compete against friends, family members, or fellow competitors.
The most notable tournaments of the world include the World Championship Series, the annual Electronicsports Masters Series, the Electronic Sports Show Live, and the Intel Extreme Masters. The world championship series features a tournament for the world’s best teams each year, with the eventual winners facing off against the best in the world at the event. Each tournament offers unique features, such as the game mode that allows the winning team to move to the next stage without losing their remaining game pieces. At the Electronic Sports Show Live, there is a total prize money award, featuring millions of dollars as the grand prize. This is one of the biggest and most noteworthy tournaments, with a number of other smaller tournaments following.
Other notable tournaments include the European ESL Investiga Cup, the HTC Devoted Series tournament, the Intel Extreme Masters, and the invitational i-ESL Season X. The HTC Devoted Series tournament is one of the most well known, with an estimated prize pool of twenty-five million dollars. This tournament features a number of high caliber teams, such as the European Team Championship, where the winning team will receive a whopping six hundred thousand dollars, and the HTC Invictus Season X, where the winning team will receive eight hundred thousand dollars. There are also smaller tournaments, such as the Americas ESL Pro League and the Asia ESL Premier Series, with the winner receiving a total prize money award of four hundred thousand dollars.
The largest and most well-known game mode in the league is the multiplayer online battle arena, known as the ARAM. The ARAM has featured some of the best Counter-Strike teams in the world, including the likes of Valve’s old powerhouse, Valve Corporation. The most recent release of this mode has seen an influx of new talent into the game, bringing it to the level of other well-known competitive games, such as League of Legends or DOTA. With the recent release year of patch 1.3, the total prize money awarded in the ARAM has increased by fifty percent, from one to two million dollars. Other notable tournaments that have been held to include the ESL European Series: Spring Season, the Americas ESL Pro League Season X, and the Asia ESL Premier Series.
In terms of game modes, the most popular mode in the ESL is the Escort War, which sees teams defending different points on the map, while trying to score the least amount of deaths possible. The most recent release of the game mode saw a drastic change in how teams played out the matches, with some teams choosing to play a longer duration, and a more objective oriented game style. Other notable modes to see use in the ESL include the Arena, which pits teams against each other to initiate; the Team Arena, where one team of five players can fight against the entire enemy army; and the Objective based Attack/Defense, which pits two teams against each other to try and destroy the opponents objectives. With the current trends in game modes and the recent increase in prize money awarded in each contest, it would be safe to say that the future of Esports is bright.
