ESports competitions slowly gained popularity with the advent of online gaming. These developers created games that had a huge following, and because they were so competitive, events, where professional gamers competed, became international sensations. The following are some of the most notable upcoming gaming tournaments in 2022.

The International

In the year 2021, the prize pool for this tournament was over 40 million dollars.

Pro gamers for DOTA 2 are among the world’s highest-earning players because of this tournament. Despite its simplicity, the game itself is very complex and requires split-second decisions and actions.

One reason for Blizzard Entertainment’s apparent bitterness is this. It was created using their map builder feature from Warcraft 3 and yet they were disqualified from participating.

The League of Legends World Championships

League of Legends and DOTA 2 have always been competitors in terms of player base. At least when it comes to core design, the games are very similar, but there is a consensus among players that DOTA 2 has a higher skill cap. However, this does not make LOL competitions any less impressive, and pro play is always compelling.

The World Championship is the biggest event in this community, but when it comes to the prize pool, it pales in comparison with DOTA. Players expect to see who will win this year’s Championship in 2021, which is still ongoing.

PGL Major

The PGL Major will be held in Stockholm in November 2021, and it will be a Counter-Strike Global Offensive tournament. This competition is another one that eSports fans enjoy every year. Counter-Strike is one of the first games to revolutionize competitive gaming, and the fact that it is still relevant speaks volumes about how well it was designed.

Fortnite World Cup

Recently, battle royale games have become really popular. Yet, nobody could have predicted that the game that came out in 2017 would amass such a huge fan base.

In just a few months, Fortnite took the world by storm and quickly became an eSports sensation.

With more than 15 million dollars in prize money in 2019, the tournament is intent on growing even more.

Professional poker players are a treat to watch, and the game itself is very fast-paced and dynamic, which makes it ideal for big competitions.


At the moment, there are many other games with their own eSports events. There are many other popular games, such as Hearthstone, Starcraft, PUBG, Rainbow Six Siege, Call of Duty, and Overwatch. Furthermore, hardware and software companies organize their own eSports events to promote their brands, so we will likely see even more exciting competitions in the future.
