Numerous in-person events had to be scrapped, and tournaments were either significantly delayed, or permanently cancelled. eSports organizers were forced to rethink their approach to hosting events in ways that could keep fans entertained, and more importantly, safe. Slowly but surely, all the big names managed to piece together eSports events that gave the greats a venue to play, all from the safety of their homes.
That’s a wrap for 2020, gang. This particularly challenging year is finally over, and a whole new one awaits. There’s sure to be lots of surprises in 2021, and hopefully many of them are wonderful. Even if they aren’t, at least we know there’s some fantastic games right around the corner!
