The Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games spurned League of Legends and as a substitute selected Dota 2 for the MOBA class at this yr’s esports occasion. While LoL has the participant numbers, the occasion clearly thinks Dota 2 is the higher esport.
Check out our record of the best LoL Champions.
It’s an enormous shock. Back in 2013 (the occasion is hosted each 4 years), LoL headed up the ‘esports’ class. This yr it’s not even the MOBA of selection.
Elsewhere, Hearthstone heads up the Card Game class, whereas StarCraft 2 might be representing the RTS. Sports sport is but to be introduced. FPS, Fighting, and Racing aren’t exhibiting up this yr.
During the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, 62 Asian nations will battle it out throughout these classes, all vying for a money prize. The occasion might be held in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. It’s an enormous deal, with the National Olympic Committees of taking part nations internet hosting qualifiers to decide on the groups to characterize them.
The occasion is a merger of the Asian Indoor Games and the Asian martial Arts Games.
Thanks, Slingshot esports.
