The list is quite interesting because it shows the difference in popularity of the game compared to the previous month. So we compare how much the popularity of a given title has changed compared to the previous month. Do not confuse it with the comparison of the overall audience or the average audience.

What’s striking? That CS:GO lost quite a lot (over -12%) in January during and is almost the last in the ranking. For comparison, the second best Esport title is on the other side of the pole. The trend has increased by almost 50%, although the LEC league itself is just gaining momentum! This shows, among other things, how dependent Counter Strike is on the tournament itself. I made a short summary of how many tournaments were in January and how many in December. . It seems that maybe we should turn a bit different direction? Fewer tournaments but more significant ? only how to achieve this ? is it possible ? In December alone, the total prize pool for all the pro players in Counter Strike was almost 2.5 million USD .

What else is worth noting. The rise in popularity… Warcraft 3. Before the total laughing of the new WC3 reforged the game itself gained in January. As you can see, even the hate has its advantages
