2015's biggest eSports teams: who is on top, and who is on the rise

1 of 10

The question of whether gaming is a “real” sport has officially ceased to be relevant: multi-million dollar championships, teams in branded jerseys flying around the world, overly excited professional announcers, corporate sponsors, dedicated streaming sites, even scandals – esports are here, and they are here to stay.

Echoing more physical sports but showcasing a wider diversity, the current roster of esports range from the teamwork-focused MOBAs to more lone wolf friendly strategy titles. Those Dota 2 or League Of Legend players absolutely have to work efficiently with their team members to counter the opposite side's player picks, while some of the best Starcraft 2 players in the world are all about the 1 vs 1 plays.

Here we're taking a look at the best players and teams from 2015 across a wide spectrum of competitive games, as well as a handful of esports players who didn't quite make the top but are poised to reach the highest tiers this year.
