Esports are typically played in tournament settings, where aspiring players and teams compete to go through qualification rounds in order to participate in the tournament. From there, other tournament formats, including single or double elimination or hybrids with group stage, can be chosen. The majority of the time, esports competitions are live, physical events with referees or officials in attendance to keep an eye out for cheating. The competition may be a small component of a larger event, like Dreamhack, or it may be the entire event, like the World Cyber Games or the Fortnite World Cup. At gaming and multi-genre gatherings, esports competitions have also gained popularity.
Video game contests have been around for a while, but esports underwent a big change in the late 1990s. Larger tournaments and more frequent corporate sponsorship emerged after the 1997 launch of the Cyberathlete Professional League. More people are now aware of esports thanks to rising in-person and online viewership. The World Cyber Games, the North American Major League Gaming league, the Electronic Sports World Cup in France, and the World e-Sports Games held in Hangzhou, China are just a few notable competitions.
Compared to the best traditional sports companies in the world, the average pay for professional esports players is far lower. The top Esports player in the world earned about $2.5 million in 2017, according to Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs. At the time, $3.6 million was the maximum annual compensation received by any esports professional. Even if there aren’t many esports tournaments and there are a lot of rivals, the amount of money one may make in the sector is eventually reduced despite the enormous potential prize pools. Esports events in the United States provide cash awards for single victories that can reach $200,000. The competition was held by Dota 2 International, and the grand prize winning team left with roughly $10.9 million.
