List of the best cyber sports series

There are no spoilers in this article. We only tried to help fans of cyber sports TV-projects to choose a series to their liking.

#1: «Noobees» (2018)

A teenage girl Sylvia dreams of becoming a professional basketball player and has no interest in computer games. One day she learns about her father Hector’s longtime dream to win a prestigious cybersports tournament.

As a child, Hector was a top gamer. What prevented him from becoming a champion was the disappearance of his best friend and his subsequent retirement from the pro scene. Sylvia decides to fulfill her father’s dream and join the «Noobees» team, which he coaches. The youngest brother of the protagonist, Erik, also plays for this team.

Later the «Noobees» team entered the Professional Video Game League, where their main opponent was the Rockers. An additional motivation for Eric and Sylvia is the fact that their opponents are coached by a man named Roberto. It was he who once became the champion in a wrestling match with Hector.

«Noobees» path to the top will not be easy, because very soon Sylvia falls in love with David, who plays for The Rockers. Teenage romance, the difficulties of growing up and sporting excitement mix, testing the protagonist for strength.

Popular Colombian series were directed by Santiago Vargas. The first season was released in 2018 on Nickelodeon TV channel, gathering more than 10 million views. The role of Sylvia was played by Mexican actress Michelle Oliveira.

The team does not accept the protagonist, but she is not upset. Tong Yao has passed a tough selection process and is now determined to succeed.

Captain ZDGX falls in love with the protagonist and intends to win her favor. Now the first girl in Chinese cybersport will have to solve two problems at once: to understand her feelings for Lu Xi Cheng and to help ZDGX to break the long-lasting series of defeats in the championship of the Celestial Empire.

The Chinese TV show «Fall Into Your Smile» has made it to our list of the best cyber sports doramas. It premiered in 2021. In English dubbing, this TV series received two titles, the second — «Cybercrush».

The picture was shot by Chinese director Qiu Zhongwei. The role of Tong Yao performed by Yaeng Xiao, Lu Si Cheng — Kevin Xu. The plot of «Fall Into Your Smile» is based on the novel of the same name.

#3: «Players» (2022)

If you are even a little bit interested in cybersports, you must have noticed how many documentaries are devoted to teams and championships. The creators of the series “Players” decided not to reinvent the wheel and in the format of mockumentary (pseudo-documentary movie) to tell the story of the negligent team Fugitive Gaming, which has been dreaming of winning the League of Legends championship for a year. In this case Fugitive Gaming members should be helped by a new star — 17-year-old Organizm, who will have to find a common language with the team’s captain, 27-year-old cybersport veteran Creamcheese. Of course, as in any sports series/movie, everything ends with a happy ending, but that’s not the most important thing here.

«The Players» is primarily a mockumentary («The Office», «Parks and Recreation», «Borat»). So if you’ve watched anything on this list, you realize that an important part of the plot is character interviews. However, if in «The Office» we really laugh at the characters, then the screenwriters make every effort to begin to empathize with them.

So, for example, initially the captain of the team appears to the viewer as a spoiled infantile, and then revealed in a completely different light. It should be noted that the series really absorbed all the template stories from the world of cybersport and played them really ridiculous.
