eSport Turniere: Alles was du darüber wissen musst

Zu einer richtigen Sportart gehören natürlich auch Wettbewerbe, bei denen die Spieler ihre Kräfte messen. eSport Turniere sind Ereignisse, die Millionen Menschen anziehen, dem Gewinner unfassbar große Summen an Preisgeld versprechen und für die sogar eigene Arenen gebaut werden. Doch was sind die wichtigsten eSport Turniere für Dota II, CS:GO, Star Craft II und League of Legends? Finde es heraus – in unserem Überblick zum Thema eSport Turniere.

 

Dota II

Das jährlich stattfindende, äußerst prestigeträchtige Dota II-Meisterschaftsturnier trägt den klangvollen Namen “The International” und besteht seit 2011. Die erste Ausgabe von “The International” war Teil der Gamescom in Köln und verhalf den Siegern zu insgesamt 1.600.000 Dollar Preisgeld. 2012 bis 2017 fand das Turnier im US-amerikanischen Seattle statt, 2018 in Vancouver (Kanada) und die Preisgelder stiegen von Jahr zu Jahr enorm an: Der amtierende Meister, das europäische Team OG, konnte 2018 unglaubliche 11.208.573 Dollar einstreichen – und zwar für sich allein! Insgesamt betrug die Höhe des Preisgeld von 2018 25.532.177 Dollar. Da macht es also gar nichts, Zweiter oder Dritter zu werden – man geht trotzdem mit mehreren Millionen nach Hause. 25 Millionen Fans, die meisten aus China, schauten sich das Finale 2018 an – wahrlich ein Sport, der die Massen begeistert.

 

2019 wird “The International” in Shanghai stattfinden, und zwar vom 20. bis 25. August. Wie hoch das Preisgeld ausfallen wird? Das weiß man noch nicht genau. Denn wie viel Geld an die Gewinner ausgezahlt wird, das bestimmen die Spieler: Entwickler Valve stellt einen Basisbetrag von 1,6 Millionen US-Dollar, mittels eines digitalen Kompendiums wird dann aber noch aufgestockt. Es bleibt abzuwarten, ob das “The International” 2019-Preisgeld die 25,5 Millionen Dollar vom letzten Jahr noch überschreiten wird.

 

CS:GO

Counter Strike: Global Offensive ist vielleicht DER Shooter Nummer Eins. Turniere gibt es viele, große Turniere (sogenannte “Majors”) nur hin und wieder. 2013 fand das erste CS:GO-Major statt, gekämpft wurde damals um fast schon mickrige 250.000 Dollar Preisgeld. Das letzte CS:GO-Major wurde aus dem Londoner Twickenham Stadium und der Wembley Arena heraus gespielt, Gewinner war das dänische Team Astralis, die 432.420 EUR Preisgeld einsackten.

 

Das letzte große Turnier war vom 14. Februar bis zum 3. März in der Spodek Arena in Katowice, Polen: Es wurde um eine Gesamtsumme von einer Million US-Dollar gekämpft. Wieder gewann Astralis, rund 1,5 Millionen Fans verfolgten den Online Stream des CS:GO-Majors. Das zweite Turnier im Jahr 2019 wird übrigens in Berlin ausgetragen – irgendwann zwischen Juli und September. Das könnte einen kleinen Ausflug wert sein.

 

Star Craft II

Star Craft II Turniere gibt es seit 2012: Die erste World Championship Series fand in Shanghai statt, der Sieger erhielt 100.000 Dollar. Ab 2013 wurde einiges verändert: Statt eines Turniers gab es nun jeweils drei Saisons in den Regionen Europa, Nordamerika und Südkorea. 2016 wurden erneut einige Änderungen vorgenommen, sodass sich die Star Craft II Turniere in WCS Circuit, GSL und 2018 WCS Global Finals unterteilen. Klingt kompliziert? Ist es auch. Echte Star Craft II Fans unterscheiden aber nicht zwischen diesen Abstufungen und freuen sich auf jede Turnier-Saison und jedes Event. Schließlich gibt es so viel mehr zu gucken als bei Spielen wie zum Beispiel Dota II.

 

Das 2018er Finale der StarCraft-II-Championship in Katowice war primär südkoreanisch dominiert: Die deutschen Teilnehmer waren schon früh ausgeschieden, am Ende durfte der Südkoreaner Rogue ein Preisgeld von 150.000 Dollar mit nach Hause nehmen. Wann die SC II WCS Finals 2019 stattfinden werden, soll demnächst angekündigt werden.

 

League of Legends

Das erste LoL-Turnier wurde 2011 in Schweden ausgetragen; ausgeschüttet wurden damals gerade einmal 100.000 Dollar Preisgeld. Aber auch bei LoL sind die Preisgelder seitdem sprunghaft angestiegen.

 

Die Weltmeisterschaft fand im Jahr 2018 in Korea statt. 24 Teams waren angereist und der Jubel war groß, als zum ersten Mal seit 2011 ein europäisches Team im Finale stand. Aber es sollte ganz anders kommen – und zwar zu einem ersten chinesischen Weltmeister-Team überhaupt. Die Chinesen legten bei der League of Legends World Championship einen Überraschungserfolg hin: 2.418.750 Dollar Preisgeld (gesamt: 6.450.000 Dollar) konnte das Team Invictus Gaming einstreichen.

 

Die neunte Ausgabe der LoL World Championship wird irgendwo in Europa, das Finale in Paris ausgetragen werden. 2020 kommt dann China an die Reihe und 2021 Nordamerika – das wird der internationalen Fanbase von League of Legends nur gerecht. Die letzte Saison brach diesbezüglich alle Rekorde: Das Finale verzeichnete 99,6 Millionen Zuschauer, die auf einem von über 30 Plattformen und Fernsehkanälen zusahen. Ähnlich wie bei Dota II leisten auch die Zuschauer einen Beitrag zum Preisgeld: 2018 wurden 2,25 Millionen Dollar vom Entwickler Riot Games, aber auch 4,2 Millionen Dollar von den Fans in den Preisgeld-Topf eingezahlt. Unglaublich!
