The world of Esports is constantly under modification, being such a high-momentum scene with countless teams in several games. Simple in-game changes can have an enormous impact on any group or video game because possibly that change can highlight a shift in the meta which will then shuffle the power groups and players in the scene. Existing in the majority online, specifically during existing times, Esports has never been as main as in these times, and the spotlight is shining intense on the most popular games.

One such game is Valve’s own Counterstrike Global Offensive, which has been making the rounds since its launch in 2012. Back at the start of the 2010-decade, first-person shooters were the hot subject of the day, with Call of Duty 4 controling the landscape. Activision’s failure to produce a deserving multiplayer follow up had horrible effects on COD, as CS: GO stole the scene with a great deal of gamers from the Call of Responsibility top teams relocating to Counterstrike. Esports was not almost as huge at that time as it is now, so one could have never ever envisioned how big CS: GO would have grown to end up being.

Speaking of the size of CS: GO, a brand new significant competition was just announced, with a humongous reward pool of $2 million on the line. This competition is arranged by PGL and will be hosted in Stockholm, Sweden, at the Ericsson Globe, the place where previous DreamHack tournaments have actually currently occurred and the place where The International was to occur prior to its unfortunate cancellation due to COVID. This significant has all the makings of a timeless, however PGL has firmly insisted that this will just happen if conditions for real offline events have actually been satisfied, so regarding not let the ongoing pandemic have adverse results on any participants or audiences.

The event is planned to be also able to host around 16,000 viewers, with streaming in 4K resolution being revealed as the first-ever major to benefit from this resolution. The scene will definitely be hyped to hear of such an announcement, although it still has a ways to go, with the dates of October 23rd to November 7th being the targeted days for the event. Again, one can not worry enough the value of conditions being viable for these types of events, but ideally this major and many others will go back to us as soon as this pandemic is dealt with.

DotA 2, another huge game in the Esports world, is another enormous game that is suffering a lot from lack of offline events. The International, mentioned a little above, is home to DotA2 and all of its fans and audiences, and the cancellation of the yearly significant will no doubt have had an adverse impact on players and community alike. Fortunately, online tournaments have still continued, offering gamers and lovers of the game something to look forward to in these unfortunate times, and an opportunity to put some CS: GO and DOTA Bets on their favorite matchups.

Extremely just recently, famous group Virtus.pro has signed a 2nd DotA2 team to their lineup, which will be called VP.Prodigy. This team is basically the same “Team Generation” group under a different name. Group Generation has actually handled to win the ESL One CIS Online, which is a quite outstanding task and which might have been the last piece to guarantee the takeover from Virtus.pro. CEO of Virtus.pro himself Sergey Glamazda stated that back in 2020 the team had actually captured their eye, leading to having a grant and a bootcamp sponsored for Group Generation. Having transferred the former VP.Prodigy to the main roster, the prodigy group slot was uninhabited, which prompted the takeover of Team Generation into Virtus’s secondary team. This implies that the main VP.Prodigy squad is:

Evgeniy “Saw” Ignatenko

Denis “Larl” Sigitov

Ilyas “celebrity” Gainullin

Maksim “forcemajor” Meretskii

Vladislav “dSa” Shuvaev

Daniil “Schelk” Shelkunov

DotA2 is still among the most popular Esports titles out there and is the primary contender for League of Legends as the most popular MOBA out there. League is most likely still ways ahead, but with continuous support and hype from the caring neighborhood, there will always be a location for DotA and for its players.
