Bookmaker Unibet has released an updated version of its “Champions of Esports”, a tool showing various statistics from across esports history.
The nifty and easy to use tool takes viewership data from Statista and player, game and country data from esportsearnings.com, Newzoo, Twitch and TeamLiquid.
It offers a variety of statistics from viewership, to average tournament winnings all the way to player nationalities and player density (i.e. amount of professionals per million population). The infographics on top earning players and teams help visualise what otherwise is just a long list of numbers.
Although they’ve cited sources, it’s fairly difficult to tell exactly where the numbers come from. This is a general gripe at most things in esports, and a frustration that many have even had with Newzoo forecasts – there’s no transparency in where or how the numbers are obtained.
