- Dew Arena had the highest average registrations in 2016 with an average of 255 teams. At the time of writing this, only 46 Dota 2 teams and 60 CS GO teams have signed up for qualifier #1 of the 2017 edition.
- CS GO registrations have overtaken Dota 2 this year. The Summer Phase of the ESL India Premiership 2017 attracted an average participation of 107 Dota 2 teams and 148 CS GO teams. Last year, Dota 2 had more registrations than CS GO across all tournaments hosted on the ESL India platform.
