CSGO has a million active players, is CSGO the best esports for tournaments?

By: Ben Hill

With over a million active players playing CSGO it’s a huge game and with over 450 million esports fans worldwide. Of these 450 million fans 201 million are active players from League of Legends, Dota 2 and CSGO. 

CSGO only recently hit the 1 million milestone. Previously at 950,000 and jumped to 1 million active users. In areas like China, CSGO is unpopular but the game is still clearly the most popular. 

Looking at CSGO with, sites like these offer a wide range of games and reviews that show how much esports fans love esports betting. 

Big tournaments in the CSGO Esport universe provide the ability to inspire and improve your style by seeing the incredible talents of athletes representing your favourite team.

Please enjoy this list of the next CSGO 2020 tournaments if you share our enthusiasm. Don’t forget – the list is in progress, and when it is publicly released, we will include updates on other contests according to the CSGO tournament schedule. 

Many tournaments have different formats, however, esports platforms have data on each match and data on all teams. 

Most pro players do not only use different skins to customise their characters but also to personalise csgo settings.

List of the most-watched CSGO tournaments: 

  • ESL One Cologne (506,000 viewers)
  • IEM Katowice (1,200,000)
  • StarLadder Berlin (838,000)

These tournaments see millions of views following the tournament due to esports fans not being able to watch the tournament live. 

What is CSGO?

CSGO or lengthened to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the Valve and Secret Path Entertainment squad focused the first-person shooter, published in 2012. The name itself was a standalone game developed in 1999 and eventually adapted into a Valve game series. 

Players play the role of a terrorist or counter-terrorist with each side having a particular task to achieve before they are eliminated by the opposing team, or according to the full timeline, such as, for example, planting and protecting a bomb on a specific location, while counter-terrorist agents must destroy the terrorists before they can be planted or re-armed

Esports fills the gap while sports declines

In recent years, global recognition on a different stage has been influenced by esports clubs, competitions and matches. The result was that the marketers were looking more and more at the sporting industry in the same way as they consider conventional American sport like basketball and football. 

Earlier in this year, we saw leading brands like Nike, BT, and Kia Motors all partner with sports teams at Louis Vuitton’s then planned 2020 League of Legends World Championships.

With the advent of the pandemic of coronavirus, athletics have now another feature where the sporting industry maintains: widespread suspension of live activities and all the resulting destruction. 

But one distinction with esports is that it is fairly well placed to change to the pandemic environment, given its increasing popularity for filling stages and arenas around the world. Live sporting competitions can be moved online very quickly, unlike conventional sporting. Even though IEM Katowice is absent from his usual live crowd, the annual Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) game event set a new crowd record in early March, making it one of the most highly watched major tournaments ever. 

It can only be the solution for the millions of fans whose regular activities are now held. Announcers are informed. So why are companies only just coming on board if they should have had an edge in the first mover?
