A few words about ESL
ESL or Electronic Sports League organizes tournaments for a lot of big names in the gaming industry a few of which are: Overwatch, Counter-Strike: GO, Gears of War, Halo 5: Guardians, Hearthstone and many more. They were founded in 2000 and mostly focused on console and PC games, however, with the rise in popularity of mobile gaming they are making the transition along with a lot of other companies to adapt to the market. This is why we get more and more tournaments for games such as Arena of Valor.
