The Best Gaming Tournaments in the World (Part 1)

Professional esports is on trending right now. In this post, we will check out the must-attend video game tournaments and championship matches organized around the world each year.

Nothing brings gamers together like a good competition. Whether by the World of Warcraft or the latest release of Mario Kart, these games offer amazing amounts of fun, community and togetherness. The esports craze has inspired some of the hottest competitions Thad the world has ever seen, and it’s only getting bigger and more popular.

Gamers who play League of Legends, Dota, Counter-Strike, and many others have joined the world of competitive gaming. Tournaments dominated the entire arenas in which official competition and leagues are filled with franchise affiliations, and the prize money has increased to the six figures.

While there’s a lot of money invested in esports, it’s still difficult to say how profitable the whole venture is at the moment. The one thing to be sure, though, is that the audience is increasing. Companies like YouTube, Twitch, and ESPN put millions of dollars just to win the rights to broadcast these events.

If you want to get involved in the competition scene, the following list will help you get started. It runs down the biggest leagues around the world and what gamers do to gain the right to play there. Some are open to everyone, while others have strict requirements to get to the finish line of brackets and leagues that run for months beforehand.

Whatever the requirements, going to one of these tournaments will be a life-changing experience. If you want to compete yourself, it’s an awesome opportunity to test your skills against the best in the world. And if you just like to watch, there are plenty of remarkable moments there, too. 

The Call of Duty World League and Call of Duty Pro League both gather professional players to compete and climb the international ladder. Only the most talented players reach the Call of Duty Championship, which has been the game’s highest level since 2013.
