“ StarCraft 2 has a media rating of 10 because it is the most popular eSport in the world with dedicated TV channels, live streams, news articles and youtube commentators such as Husky, HD, Day9 and more.”
Starcraft 2 boasts over 1.7 million United States Dollars in prize money, making it the by far most popular competitive game out there. Interestingly enough games like League of Legends has a rather low prize pool (in comparison to Sc2) but a very high media rating, thus if you are interested in hosting a tournament you could get a fairly well covered event in media even with a seemingly low prize pool!
The top three games were Starcraft 2 on 1st place, CS 1.6 on 2nd and LoL on 3rd!
