Why IESF selected these titles?

The reasons are very well justified as the titles carry their own legacy in its genre.

PES by Konami is the fiercest rival of FIFA by EA, however the whole gaming community is divided into two halves on which is a better simulation of real life football. Tekken 7 can be regarded as a standout fighting game by Bandai Namco Entertainment ruling the charts since 2015. On the other hand, Dota 2 by Valve has been the pioneer in MOBA for years now!

The previous edition of the event took place in Seoul, South Korea where the winners were Korean esports athlete Jay Min ‘Knee’ Bae (Tekken 7), Sweden (Dota 2) and Iran (PES) respectively. Japan received the award for the ‘Best Team’ in that edition grabbing the second place both in Tekken 7 and PES.
