In the world of competitive gaming, the best esports teams put out their strongest rosters to compete at the highest level of professional video gaming. Every year, smaller teams and new players challenge the biggest organizations for the top prize. While current rankings are calculated by earnings and points, this list of esports teams is decided by fans voting. What is the best esports team in the world?

With rosters in League of Legends, CS:GO, Hearthstone, Super Smash Bros., Overwatch, Dota 2, Rocket League, Fortnite, PUBG, StarCraft II, and Call of Duty, the largest, highest-earning, and richest esports teams are displaying their skills at the most popular video games. While many are sponsored by large companies, some have been started by avid gamers in their homes. 

As of 2020, the most famous esports teams include Team Liquid, Cloud9, NRG esports, American group FaZe Clan, SK Telecom T1, OpTic Gaming, and Evil Geniuses, which feature some of the greatest pro gamers of all time. Representing Europe, Asia, Australia, the US, South America, and more, the top esports teams are from all over the world. Learn the names of good eSports orgs with this list, and maybe you'll find yourself on one of these clans in the future. 

Vote up the best esports teams and vote down the ones who don't deserve the top spot. Feel free to vote for your favorites, and add any cool and underrated teams missing from the list.
