With the end of the year fast approaching, there is still some time for some of the biggest eSports competitions to take place in 2023.
The year has already been a major one for the activity, with participation and viewing figures set to show an increase and continue to rise in the months and years to come. Among the reason for the viewing increase is the fact that there are new ways in which to enjoy the activity.
Numerous bookmakers have decided to create various eSports betting markets that can be accessed when watching the tournaments that take place, with punters now able to wager on a variety of different things, including options that can offer more value than picking just an overall winner.
Broadcasters around the world are also making the sport more accessible as they continue to show the events as part of their coverage, thus increasing the appeal that surrounds the competitions and likely to boost the numbers that will ultimately end up watching the final major events of 2023.
What eSports still have major tournaments left to complete in 2023?
Although there are a plethora of different game titles being competed in across the eSports industry at the moment, the final two months of 2023 appear to be dedicated to just two of the biggest.
Mobile Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) are two of the most popular eSports in the world, with both games having millions dedicated to playing them as well as watching them when they take place.
Mobile Legends is a mobile multiplayer online battle arena game that has often been regarded as being extremely popular in the Southeastern Asia market, while CS:GO is a multiplayer tactical first-person shooter. The multiplayer element of both of these games makes them appealing, as they can involve using strategies or even teamwork in some cases to reach the ultimate goal of winning.
What tournaments are scheduled for November?
While there are still some tournaments scheduled to be completed across October, there are a handful of competitions that are slated to take place over the course of November, with one event being contested across each week of the month.
The M5 World Championship will be completed over the course of November and December, and will see the best Mobile Legends players go up against each other in the showpiece event for this eSport. It will be held in The Phillippines and will include an increased prize pool of $900,000 being offered; a record amount.
The CS:GO Asia Championships 2023 will take place between November 8 and 12, as the best players in Asia will compete against each other, while the following week will see the return of a Mobile Legends-based event. The MLBB Pro League Invitational will take place between November 15 and 19.
November is rounded off with the inclusion of the BLAST Premier: Fall Final competition that will involve CS:GO players. This event is scheduled for the final full week of the month, with action set to take place between the 22nd and 26th.
Are there any major eSports tournaments in December?
One reason why the BLAST Premier: Fall Final is likely to attract many viewers for various factors is that December will see the BLAST Premier World Final take place. Scheduled to commence on the 13th and finish on the 17th, this tournament will see eight of the world’s best players compete against each other on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE, for a share of the $1 million prize pool that has been put together.
Aside from this tournament, there are no other major events scheduled to take place in the final month of the year.
