eSports differ from traditional sports in many ways. One of these differences is that they don't have a regular “season”. It is possible to find different eSports tournaments almost every month of the year. Summer, winter, spring, autumn - you are not limited to a specific period like other sports, and you can find an event to attend (or watch) every season. Below, we are talking about the eSports tournaments waiting for you in Autumn 2020 and briefly explained each one.

September 2020

There are three highlights this month. Let’s take a look at them first.

  • Overwatch League Playoffs (September 1 - 15)
  • DreamHack Montreal (September 16 - 1
  • Overwatch League Grand Final (September 29)

Let's start with the Overwatch League. The playoffs of this event will be held in Los Angeles, and the Grand Final will be held in Philadelphia. The Overwatch League was founded in 2017. It belongs to the game developed by Blizzard with the same name. City-based teams compete for the grand prize every year. If you are wondering how grand it can get, let's point out that a total of $ 3.5 million was given to teams in 2018. In 2020, some changes were made in the format of the tournament due to Covid-19, and the stage format was terminated, for example. However, this change is not expected to have a serious impact on favorite teams. Overwatch is played in teams of six and uses FPS mechanics. But playing as a team is more important than shooting fast. The award of the tournament winner will be $ 1 million. If you want to place a bet, let's say you can find the best odds on the Vulkan casino site.

Dreamhack is an organization attended by more than 300,000 players every year and is held throughout the year in different cities. The September 2020 event is scheduled in Montreal, but we recommend that you check the current status before booking. Because there is a possibility of cancellation due to Covid-19. If not canceled, you can be sure that you will have a very enjoyable time. This Swedish-based organization is included in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's largest LAN party and is not just about games: We can also say that it is a festival and an expo.

October 2020

Once again, let's list the highlights of this month and briefly explain them all.

  • Madrid Games Week 2020 (October 8 - 11)
  • NA ESL Pro Tour Masters (October 9 - 11)
  • DreamHack Rotterdam (October 16 - 1
  • DreamHack Hyderabad (October 30)

Madrid Games Week describes itself as a “video game and electronic entertainment fair” and features a number of esports tournaments every year. If not canceled due to Covid-19, LVP Clash Royale Cup and LVP CS: GO Cup events will be held this year. In addition, a tournament is planned for League of Legends too.

ESL Pro League is an organization established in 2015 for the CS: GO game. You may remember it by the name ESEA Pro League. ESL Pro, where 24 teams from four continents compete, is considered the premier professional CS: GO league. Famous teams such as Fnatic, Team Vitality, and FaZe compete in it. The league's North America matches will be held in October, and a total of 8 teams will compete.

Dreamhack events continue in October, but as we mentioned above, there is a risk of cancellation due to Covid-19. Don't forget to check the current status before making a plan.

November 2020

Some of the important events to be held this month are:

  • Blizzcon 2020 (November 6 - 7)
  • DreamHack Atlanta (November 13 - 15)
  • MotoGP eSports Championship (November 13 - 14)
  • RedBull Conquest USA (November 23 - 24)
  • DreamHack Open Winter 2020 (November 27 - 29)

Blizzcon is an event organized by Blizzard since 2005 and mainly aims to introduce new games of the company. However, small-scale tournaments are also organized within the event, and it is important as Blizzard is one of the most important companies developing esports games. For example, more information about Overwatch 2 is expected this year.

MotoGP eSports Championship is an event organized for the motorcycle racing game of the same name. In this context, we can say that it is one of the most interesting activities because it is one of the rare esports games that is not a shooter or a strategy.

Redbull Conquest USA
is a tournament that focuses on fighting games. This year, it will feature Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, TEKKEN 7, and Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st] games. It covers 8 regions in the United States, and the event in October will be in Los Angeles, Houston, and San Francisco.
