We are proud of all teams that have participated and have shown remarkable performance throughout the tournament, starting from the group stage qualification up to the grand finals,” added Jocelyn.
Since the government started recognizing esports as an official sporting event in 2017, the Taiwanese games market has also valued at $1.4 million and ranked 7th in Asia Pacific for 2020, according to a report by Newzoo, an esports analytics firm.
Meanwhile, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, the second-most-popular esports game in Southeast Asia, has reportedly racked up over 500 million downloads and 75 million active players since its first launched. Much of its popularity is centered around Southeast Asia, where the game has established itself as a major esports player.
