These players are more competitive than ever that’s why watching and streaming live games is always awesome, as well as betting on them at esports betting sites.

There are major, premier, and minor matches for the big 4: League of Legends, CSGO, DotA 2, and Overwatch, but the most popular ones are the following:

Yes, it is a tour! The official title of the first The DreamHack Open circuit in 2015 was Counter Strike: Global Offensive. The tournament format changes overtime since the organizers are still in search of the perfect format, but the events always consist of six directly invited teams (the best of the best teams from previous tournaments prior to DreamHack Open), and 2 qualified teams (one from Europe and North America regions).
