11 esports events to get excited about in 2022

In 2021, we witnessed many magnificent tournaments with the increasing measures against Covid-19. For example, we were able to watch CS:GO Major after a long time. In this list, we will talk about the important tournaments in 2022.

We did not include series with many tournaments such as Dota Pro Circuit in our list. Let's get to our list without waiting too long.

Worlds 2022

Even though we have a long time ahead of us, one of the most interesting tournaments on the list is Worlds 2022. Worlds, which drives League of Legends fans crazy every year, will be held in North America in the Fall of 2022. Last year, Worlds 2021 was won by the Chinese superteam EDward Gaming. Although it is not certain which teams are joining this year, a fight between Chinese and Korean participants for the championship is expected as always. As details about the tournament emerge, we will share them with you.

The last of Dota 2's most prestigious tournament series, The International, will be with us towards the end of the year. Even though we do not know much about it yet, it is not difficult to imagine that the teams that have proven themselves throughout the Dota Pro Circuit will have an incredible fight at The International 11. In addition, with the support of the fans, the prize pool of the tournament will undoubtedly be the biggest of the list. In The International 10, PSG.LGD were the absolute favourites, while Team Spirit won the title with a fantastic performance. Are you expecting a surprise this year as well?

Champions 2022

The first year of VCT has just ended. The VALORANT Champions Tour 2022 was announced on December 10. Acend won VCT Champions 2021 by defeating CIS representative Gambit Esports. The tournament will be held in December, so it is impossible to guess which teams will be joining. However, if EMEA can keep up the good work in Champions 2021 where they made it to semifinals with three representatives, the region will be the favourite for Champions 2022 as well. After a great circuit, we will see an amazing Champions 2022 towards the end of the year. Being the most prestigious tournament of VALORANT, it is the center of attention for the fans of the game.

LEC Spring 2022

Let’s continue with LEC Spring 2022. Although Worlds 2022 is the most interesting League of Legends tournament on our list, you should not underestimate LEC Spring 2022. The 10 teams that will take part in the tournament are all decent teams. 2021 saw a total domination by MAD Lions in Europe's major League of Legends tournament LEC. However, MAD Lions lost some of their superstars like Carzzy and Humanoid while new contenders joined in like Team Vitality with Perkz. As of today, looking at the rosters, LEC Spring 2022's favourites are Vitality, G2 Esports, Fnatic, MAD Lions and Rogue. However, the teams will have to wait until the regular season's end to know if they really are capable of making it to the grand final. This competition, which will start on January 14, will continue until April 10. The prize pool is €200,000.
