2022 Asian Games 2022
The 2022 Asian Games will be a watershed moment for the esports community because it will be the first non-gaming event to include esports as a medal event. The titles are as follows:
• Arena of Valor Asian Games version
• Dota 2
• Dream Three Kingdoms 2
• EA Sports FIFA
• League of Legends
• PUBG Mobile Asian Games version
• Street Fighter V
The games were planned to be held between September 10 and 25, with Hangzhou, China, serving as the host city. The Asian Olympic Council, however, rescheduled it from September 23 to October 8.
International 2022 will not only be the major esports tournament in South East Asia this year. It will also be one of the largest overall esports events in terms of stakes, prize pool, and viewership.
The best teams from six regions will compete for the Aegis of Champions at SunTec Singapore and Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The event will take place from October 15 to October 30, with a completely new format that will space out games between a reworked Last Chance Qualifier, the group stage, and the main event.
This will allow 20 teams to compete, with 12 qualifying directly through Dota Pro Circuit points earned in regional leagues and majors.
At the same time, the remaining eight spots are awarded to teams that survive one of several end-of-season qualifiers.
