Most popular video games, tournaments and teams for betting
LoL Betting (League of Legends)
The popular LoL is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), in which players choose a certain fantasy character called a “champion” and face off on a map between teams of 5 (sometimes 3) members with the goal of destroying the enemy’s base.
By far the most popular eSports game.
Another MOBA, in which you will need access to a free account on the popular online video game service Steam to play. Similar in nature to LoL, it features more complex game mechanics, making it a favourite among hardcore gamers.
A classic game, which with the arrival of a new expansion has recovered its tone and wants to aspire to the throne of eSports again.
In the game we play a race of our choice (Zerg, Terran and Protoss) that must face off against the others to gain supremacy.
Call Of Duty
In this case we are talking about an FPS where we play modern soldiers who must fight in teams to capture their opponent’s flag.
A true war experience.
The closest thing to real football in video games, the FIFA saga by Electronic Arts is a classic that brings all the excitement of sport, stars and real football competition to the eSports arena.
World Of Tanks
In this case, as the name suggests, what we will do is control a historical tank and take on other teams that also handle these armoured monsters.
Do you know Magic: the Gathering cards? This would be an approach taken to eSports.
We use virtual cards to face other opponents combining skill, spells and strategy. Very addictive and with a very fast learning curve that does not detract from its complexity.
Some tournaments where to place eSports bets
In terms of eSports tournaments and championships, there are numerous examples in the world, from the League of Legends World Championship, World Cyber Games, Major League Gaming Intel Extreme Masters…
Or the more recent World Series Of Videogames and Championship Gaming Series.
In addition, we will also find specific events associated with video game fairs and brands and, on a local level, initiatives such as the Professional Video Game League (LVP).
