MODERN ESPORT AND ITS IMPACT ON OUR LIFE

Digital technologies are firmly integrated into all the spheres of human life, affecting entertainment and sport. With the development of modern technologies, a new sport appeared, which we used to call cybersport or esport. In simple words, esports is a competition in computer games between players. In the West, when people talk about this phenomenon, they use the term “esports.” Online esport became a very popular type of entertainment and turned into an industry that is tightly connected to video games. However, not all the games fit the competition. Only the esports games are included in TOP: LoL, CSGO, Dota2, and some other no less popular disciplines. Each of the listed games has great competitive potential. That’s why esport matches and tournaments attract a huge audience. Thus, top events can gather an audience of several million people.

According to analysts’ opinion, the perspectives for esports are fantastic. The esports competition industry is currently at the peak of its popularity. The number of esports fans is growing every day and has exceeded the mark of 500 million people. Like other sports fans, these people always follow the performances of their idols and attend esports events where they can support their favorite players. Esports arenas have appeared worldwide and are designed for computer game competitions. Higher educational institutions run special courses and training programs for professional players, managers, coaches, and other professionals whose lives are closely connected with the esport industry. Esports stars have become popular media personalities whose fame and popularity are comparable to the popularity of top football or basketball players. Moreover, according to the forecasts of several experts, esports have all the qualities and backgrounds to overtake classical sports in popularity very soon.
Of course, esport has not always been so popular. There were times when it was considered a fair niche hobby for a small number of enthusiasts. Perhaps now, when Dota or CSGO competitions collect tens of millions of views, it’s hard to believe. Therefore, it is worth making a brief historical overview.

HISTORY OF ESPORTS AND ITS DEVELOPMENT

Esports, in the form we are used to watching it, has existed for no more than 20 or even 30 years. However, the history of esports began in the 70s of the last century. It is considered that the very first computer game tournament was held in 1972 among Stanford students. The reward for taking part in the tournament then was rather modest – an annual subscription to the popular Rolling Stone magazine. For your information, today, the prize pools of top tournaments can reach tens of millions of dollars. Feel the difference. Esports were developing step by step. So, in the 80s, the first esports companies appeared in the world. In the 90s, a number of important events took place related to the release of new computer games with high competitive potential. It means that the history of esports at this time is replenished with tournaments in such games as DOOM, Warcraft, and Quake, of course! These games revolutionized the gaming industry as it is and had a great influence on the development of esports. The audience of fans of virtual sports was constantly increasing with each tournament and contributed to the popularization of this trend in society.

At the beginning of the 21st century, the history of esports is getting to a new stage. Competitions are held in such popular games as Dota and CS. These are the first versions of these games, and we can say that everything is just beginning. But soon, famous esports tournaments will begin to be organized. So, in 2011, the first Dota 2 World Championship took place. The championship was called The International, and since that time, it has become the main annual event for Dota and all other esports. Competitions in League Of Legends, CS:GO, and other popular disciplines are also starting to take place. From that moment, esports tournaments began to resemble what we are used to seeing in competitions today. Sponsors allocate a lot of money for tournaments, and the competitions are broadcast to a multi-million audience. Mass media actively covers e-sports – news on TV informs the audience about all the events of the professional esports scene. By 2021, esports is becoming widespread and popular in society.

POPULAR ESPORTS DISCIPLINES

There are thousands of computer games in the world. Some of them are in the public eye among gamers, while others have moved into oblivion. However, only the best online games with serious competitive potential were able to enter the list of top esports games. We can say that each of the top online games has become a separate esports discipline or even a different type of esports. So, the following types of esports, which are included in the top online games, are the most popular today:
● Dota 2 is a MOBA game played by millions of players worldwide. 2 teams compete in the virtual arena, each of which tries to get to the opponent’s location and destroy its main structure. Perhaps it is this game that collects the largest prize pools in tournaments.
● LOL game or the League of Legends represents the MOBA genre. This discipline is considered the most popular today, with over 100 million fans.
● CS:GO is a team shooter that has millions of fans. According to the plot of this game, a special forces team is trying to thwart the plans of terrorist teams. Watching the confrontation between these teams is extremely exciting, and this feature turns CS:GO into one of the most spectacular esports disciplines in the world.
● Hearthstone is an online game that is also one of the top disciplines. At the same time, it is a card game based on the Warcraft universe.
● Valorant is a young but promising team shooter

We recommend that you immediately check the schedule of events for several months so that none of the important competitions won’t surprise you.

Among the top events, it is worth highlighting the world championships in the most popular esports disciplines and events held by ESL, Dreamhack, and other famous esports organizations.
However, not only top esports tournaments deserve attention, but also esports championships for young players.
