Minecraft?

I am pretty sure less than 10% people play Minecraft.

eSports titles and AAA games take 80% of the market share in India.

Casual games like Indie games/Minecraft or other popular games like Genshin and maybe rhythm games are barely played.

Although yes Minecraft does take the most popular spot in the non-esports, non-AAA game category.

I think the problem with India is that Valorant requires some setup - a okayish PC/Laptop, mouse, mouse pad, good internet connection etc. The masses in India of the age group (14-26) dont really have the access to this when compared to a smartphone with internet (almost everyone has a smartphone and JIO) which is why BGMI/PUBg popularity cannot be matched with Valorant nor will a ban on BGMI/Pubg get translated to Valorant.

Even the russians in USA dont play Valorant. NA servers of CSGO are filled with Russians who say they will lose their masculanity if they play a cartoon based shooter game.

In 2020, population aged 15-24 years for India was 248,550.37 thousand persons.

60K views is miniscule

I'd say 1 in Esports popularity.

i wonder if there's a way to find the number of people in a certain wealth/income group, because of amount of leisure money needed to play the game in the first place (internet, a solid laptop)

I'd imagine that out of the 250 million people only a small portion of them have the chance to even play it or know about it due to the financial stuff.

You know barely 1-3% of the people in India have access to computers, right?

Out of that the percentage of people having computers when they are young, especially 15-24 is even lower.

When you compare it accordingly, 60K viewers is insane, especially when you compare the history of eSports events in India.

Moreover, people who play the game don't necessarily follow esports. Only around 20-30% of the people actually watch esports and out of that only 10-20% would watch local tourneys. Most watch clips on Youtube or tune in for significant events like Champions/Masters.

Almost everyone who has dipped their hands in eSports games in India has tried valorant.

???

These countries have serious problems of modern slavery where they bring in people from other countries and confiscate their passports to restrain them to work for very low wages.

You need some lessons on stuff happening around the world right now.

I know this is a problem, but a low number of greedy companies take people that work with other people and convince them to escape for more money, then take their passports, etc., the government is searching for these companies and takes calls from people that may know any information about. I acknowledge that there is some greedy people do it around the world such as amazon in UK gave their workers (0.42 cents per her hour) as you know UK is expensive. Here personal workers etc. are respected and I know some personally treat their old workers such as their brothers, also in India there is some racist problems with Indian Muslims there so you can't say about us something that only rare greedy workers do it and most of them are jailed.

I don't know what's happening in other countries but I am talking about Saudi Arabia.

game: 7/10
it's one of the biggest games in the pc gaming community, but casually people see like tiktok clips and that's it, a bunch of my friends don't even play pc games and have never heard of valorant
esports: 9/10
Healthy amount of orgs in the scene, huge viewership and talented players, the only problem I see is the behind the scenes practice stuff not being on the level of EMEA

Valorant : 7/10 - Played mostly by teenagers that look like they come from twitter
Esports : 3/10 - No shit, Only popular esports here is a league of legends ( mobile legends ) rip off paying orgs to never switch games or even attempt to join. Also pro player salary is shit that dispenser tries to sell csgo skins in his spare time.

Pretty popular game and a lot of people play it but also the ping is a big issue cause there's no canadian servers n shit.
Esports 9/10 wise: huge viewership with like the toronto LANS being huge and having really big players from Canada. The literaly face of valorant like tenz,top players like marved,ayrin and all representing Canada :).
