Today’s generation does not only deal with sports that involve physical immersion. Sports nowadays does not only mean getting those legs running, or throwing a ball. Yes, you heard that right. Today, the world is introduced to a new type of sport; this is the so-called e-sports gaming which means electronic sports gaming.
Here are the three best electronic sports games that you should probably know about:
1. Defense of the Ancients (DotA) 2
Defense of the Ancients or DotA is probably one of the most popular e-sports in the world of gaming today. This game is participated by five different players regardless of where these players are coming from. The players only need to have a steam account which allows them to access on DotA.
But what if you are going to play alone? Is that even possible? Well, if you want to play DotA, it does not necessarily mean that you have to play with a team; you can also play alone and match up with other online players out there. As you match up, you will be matched with other players and you will be given a chance to form a team with the other players who are also seeking for a match.
There are different heroes that you can choose from. This makes it easier for you to take a good look at what kind of hero would you like to use. Do you want a hero with strength, agility, or probably the intelligent type?
What is more interesting about DotA is that it involves international championships which can allow you to play with earnings. As of today, the prize pool for winners in the tournament is worth $14,591,201.
2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Counter-Strike is a game that never goes out of style. This e-sports game has been one of the classics to all the e-sport gamers in the world.
Counterstrike GO is a type of e-sport game which is made up of different game modes:
• Classic: Competitive
• Classic: Casual
• Arms Race
Classic: Competitive mode made counterstrike so famous among its players. This is about a five on five type of gaming among LAN players. You can surely form your own team and play a match as one unit. But if you do not have a team that you can play with, you can join other teams to match with other players.
This is a classic game which involves strategy and good skill in shooting the enemies. However, it is not a simple game about just using guns. It is also important that you should play with your team with strategy and teamwork.
3. Mobile Legends
Mobile Legends is one of the rising games today. However, this game can be played not exclusively on your mobile phones but also in computers using blue stacks or any emulators.
This is a game which has a similarity to the rules of DotA. However, it is much easier to play with as the match can finish in a shorter period of time compared to DotA. An average Mobnile Legend game lasts for only ten minutes while DotA can last for an hour.
Mobile Legends has also a lot of heroes that you can choose from. There’s the mage, tank, support, fighter or assassin, and the marksman type. The key to winning the game is forming a good line up of heroes. It means that every team should have one of the aforementioned heroes in order to win during the clash.
You can play alone and join other teams online, or you can form a team of your own with three or five players only. This is a game that will allow you to meet other players online as you match in a ranked game, matchup game, or in a brawl mode.
