10 Most Popular Esports Games in 2015
What Are The Top Esports Games in 2015?
So you want to make it in the bigtime huh? Playing video games for a living has been the dream of many, but if you are serious about pursuing that goal then these are the games you need to focus on. The following is a list of the most popular Esports games based two factors: Prize money and popularity. No matter how much you like GTA V, there is not a lot of money to be made from playing it.
10. World of Warcraft
The PvP arena in World of Warcraft.
You might never have considered it before, but World of Warcraft hosts tournaments with some pretty decent prize money. The latest World of Warcraft Arena World Championship had 1st place prize winnings of $120,000 dollars. That’s not bad at all. That’s like 8000 months worth of game time subscription fees. If you play on a PvE server you’re out of luck though, there is only money to be made in PvP..
The competitive aspect of WoW takes place in the PvP arenas. There are 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5 matches that can be played. Anyone that wants to can participate since the game has a ladder/ranking system. Only the top ranked players are able to compete for money though.
