After several days of intense competition in Bali, Indonesia, the International Esports Federation (IESF) has concluded with a resounding success the 2022 World Esports Championships, which featured a highly interactive program and an exceptional and surprising closing ceremony.

IESF satisfied after the 2022 World Esports Championships

Vlad Marinescu, IESF President, has been very grateful to the city of Bali for the beautiful event they have organized and stated:

“We are extremely grateful to our hospitable host city Bali for sharing IESF’s values of respect, friendship, and unity and supporting our mission to unite, support, and empower the international esports ecosystem. Esports’ growth is unparalleled; together, we have broken barriers and made history!”

And they were hosting an esports competition as big as this one is no small feat. This 2022 World Esports Championship was attended by more than 600 athletes representing 105 countries. This is the most significant number of countries participating in a top-level esports competition.

The participating countries had an excellent representation

While the prize pool of $500,000 was not as impressive as in most professional events, we can say that each athlete who participated in this event gave their all to leave their country’s name and flag at the top of the podium.

The amount above was distributed among the winners of the six games that were being played in WE Championship 2022:

  • CS:GO
  • Dota 2
  • Mobile Legends: Bang Bang
  • eFootball 2023
  • Tekken 7
  • PUBG Mobile

As the host country of this magnificent event, Indonesia has been crowned the Electronic Sports World Champion after winning three of the six video games described above.

Indonesia: Extraordinary host

We do not doubt that Indonesia is breathing esports. The fans did not disappoint in video games; they showed encouragement, sanity, and dedication.

There were approximately 500 hours of gameplay that we lived in this WE Championships 2022. This exceeded 10 million views and nearly 200 million impressions on social networks.

The IESF was very enthusiastic in recognizing how far women’s esports have come, noting that this is a big step towards creating many more opportunities for female players.

WE Championship 2022 exceeded expectations

We cannot do anything but praise the IESF after this excellently organized event.

Moreover, this edition has been the largest and most geographically diverse since its first edition 14 years ago.

At the event’s closing ceremony, it was announced that Iași, Romania, will be the host city for the WE Championship 2023.

The news was also released that more than 800 athletes are expected to participate in the 2023 edition. And they plan to increase the number of countries involved in this event to 130.

There is no doubt that the IESF believes blindly in its project, and every time they organize this type of event, it lets it be known that it is one of the best initiatives created around e-sports.
