Globally, the total esports audience has grown to around 500 million viewers in 2020, a year-on-year growth of 11,7%.
But which esports team is the most successful in the current league? Researchers at SlotsUp analysed 50 esports teams to determine who comes out on top, scoring them on a variety of different factors, using a points-based system to determine who is the most successful team in the current league.
A weighted scoring system were used, where each team was measured on five factors:
- 2020 team earnings
- Overall team earnings
- Number of official tournaments teams have earnt from
- Social media followers (combined following Youtube, Instagram and Twitter of official team socials)
- Google search volumes
Team Liquid comes top of the index with a total of 46,6/60 points, and Fnatic just one point behind on 45,6/60. Both were high scoring across the board, but Team Liquid’s top three positions in this year’s earnings meant that they secured the top spot in the overall index.
Top 10 Most Popular Esport Teams:
- Team Liquid – overall score 46,6
- Fnatic – 45,6
- G2 Esports – 40,7
- Natus Vincere – 40,6
- Team SoloMid – 40,2
- FaZe Clan – 40
- Evil Geniuses – 39,6
- Cloud9 – 38,6
- Team Secret – 38,2
- OF – 36,6
