Throughout a collection of posts we will describe and analyze the panorama of the best competitive games of this 2019, broken down by gender, we begin!
Play competitive FPS Team Vs. Team
Within this category, the FPS Team Vs. Team multiplayer games we find different titles in which a team of players faces another to achieve different objectives and to win the victory over various rounds to win the game.
- Counter-Strike Global Offensive
We start with the game FPS Team Vs. Team par excellence, which every gamer lover of this genre has ever tried in his life, is not another but the veteran game developed by Valve, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Developed by Valve Corporation in cooperation with Hidden Path Entertainment, It is the fourth game of the Counter-Strike saga, not counting Counter-Strike: Online, which was released on August 21, 2012, for PC, and a few days later for Xbox 360 and PS3.
Currently, it remains the competitive FPS game with the most World-Wide follow-up of the scene, moving masses to its face-to-face events and attracting the attention of thousands of gazes during them through the different relay platforms. It has many National Leagues, International and world tournaments.
In the last international tournament called MAJOR (Intel Extreme Masters XIII – Katowice Major, 2019), in which the best teams from around the world face to get the title of best team in competitive CS: GO, handed out $1,000,000 in prizes for participants, in which the computer of Danish origin ASTRALIS, was lifted with the victory.
The WESG holds one of the largest prize pools (USD 2,500,000) within electronic sports, and differs from other competitions due to the approach of its participants, the teams have to be made up of players of a single nationality, exercising as representatives of their country, in the last edition of 2019 the Bulgarian Windigo team won the victory.
The FPS version of a competitive game developed by Blizzard in which two teams face each other to capture targets or escort them to a certain point, surrounded by growing lore was released on May 24, 2016, for PC, PS4 and XboxOne.
Overwatch puts players in teams of six people, with each person choosing one of several available heroes, each with unique moves and abilities, and divided into three classes: damage, tank, and support.
Currently, the competitive scene of this title finds its main focus in the USA, where there is a league in which the different teams/franchise compete to reach the top of the table. The top 8 teams will play a Play-Off model tournament to win the title of champion, for this year, the league has increased the prize pool to $5,000,000 in prizes for the participants.
Also, there is a tournament called Overwatch World Cup, in which teams made up of the best players in each country face each other in different stages of groups and events to get a place in the finals held during the BLIZZCON.
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
A first-person multiplayer tactical shooting video game, developed by Ubisoft Montreal and distributed by Ubisoft for PC, PS4 and XboxOne platforms on December 1, 2015.
The game consists of matches in teams of five attackers against five defenders, the defenders must defend a target within a structure, whether a hostage, two pumps or a container biological. If they manage to defend the goal successfully or eliminate all the attackers, they win the round; the attackers need to rescue, to disable, or to ensure the target (respectively), or remove the defenders to win.
A game that has come from less to more in the competitive field throughout these four years of life that has the title, since the evolution of the community, events, and teams at a competitive level. It has been increasing year after year thanks to the commitment that Ubisoft has put to this competitive game to be raised as one of the best of this 2019.
This year opens the official Ubisoft League of Rainbow Six: Siege in Spain, the R6 Spain Nationals in which for 18 weeks the top 10 national teams will face each other to meet the best team in the country.
Also, at the international level, we have the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six PRO LEAGUE, in which the eight best teams on the international scene is faced to clinch the title of the best squad of R6 in the world. It will feature a prize pool of USD 275.000 in prizes to the participants; the next finals will take place on 18 and 19 MAY 2019 in Milan, Italy.
- Saga Call of Duty
The War-style video game saga per excellence developed primarily and initially by Infinity Ward, and distributed by activity (we also found several deliveries developed by other teams such as Trey arch and Sledgehammer Games).
Although it has a large community, it is very different from the previous titles mentioned above, since they do not focus on a single title, but about every year they are taking out a new game. And this community that seeks the competitive game is changing with them, making that, instead of forming bases like in the rest of video games, users must adapt to the new modalities and controls that they are launching.
This situation means that the community of professional players is very volatile, since a team that can dominate a competitive year cannot necessarily adapt to the new delivery and end up disappearing, so it is rare to find competitive, high-level teams without seeing constant changes in their staff annually as they do not adapt.
So in this way, although we find a multitude of small tournaments and one with greater importance, we cannot reference it as one of the competitive gaming on a more regular basis, in which the prize pool and events are in constant change over the years.
