Cyber Evolution hosts multiple gaming competitions that can be regarded as the gaming equivalent of the Olympics. During a single year, the contests list more than 75,000 attendants and about 2,500 active participants. The competitions are targeting the most popular games of the season, including, but not limited to, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, and Day of Defeat.
