Esports has witnessed massive growth lately and continues to draw tremendous following each day. From sports betting enthusiasts to die-hard game fanatics, esports is out there to deliver non-stop action. With that being said, players and teams have become diverse and more people gravitate towards esports thanks to its innovative nature. Before esports, where online RPG’s and LAN based games ruled the gaming community, the majority of players were males. Of course, there were a few females who have taken an interest in playing games, but it was predominantly comprised of males. But now, it has taken a turn wherein almost half are female players. Although, game preferences have a drastic difference between male and female gamers. According to a study done by a video game analytics company, it was found out that 90% of MOBA, RPG, FPS, and sports video game genre players were male. Meanwhile, family simulator and tile-matching games were dominantly preferred by female gamers. The bottom line is that esports is still far from being balanced between the sexes. Esports have separated tournaments for the genders, as there is still no organized mixed-tournament where male teams go against female teams or an active co-ed team.
Female CS:GO Teams
Female teams who have competed have proved that they are not just pretty faces but can actually play games. We’ll focus on CS:GO teams that have veteran female players who are not ordinary players and will definitely not hold back in competing. Behold the top five all-female teams in CS:GO tournaments who joined in the most recent all-female Copenhagen Games.
Unfortunately, Secret dropped all players from the roster even though the team was competitive and won the titles in various turnaments, Secret’s management still decided to waive all female players. But, you can still catch the female gunners in their new team in Dynasty Gaming. The players are, Julia Kiran/juliano, Ksenia Kluenkova/vilga, Michaela Lintrup/mimimicheater, Zainab Turkie/zAAz, and Anna Ananikova/Ant1ka.
London Conspiracy Female
The Russian all-female team, after competing in their first CS:GO Majors and reached the Finals round of the tournament–but lost to Secret in a 0-2 series–disbanded as well. However, before dropping the franchise’s female team, they tried other qualifying and minor tournaments. Although they failed to advance further, you can expect these ladies to take the world of esports by storm in no time. Former members of the London Conspiracy Female team were Strawberry, PILAR, She, Lena, and Reina.
