Gaming gained its glory in the early ’90s. The campaigns were primarily targeted at male gamers as traditionally the challenges and combat games of the times were designed keeping the male gamer’s behavior in mind. But with changing times and blurring gender lines gaming is no more a turf claimed by men only. As numbers speak, Saudi Arabia has a higher percentage of female gamers (90%) than male gamers (83%).
The number of female gamers around most gaming platforms has increased exponentially over the past couple of years. With the expansion of games around the world, developers have to keep up by introducing female characters and playing options relatable to them. Female players’ interests vary between playing for fun and participating in massive esports tournaments. There’s a sub-sect that gets attracted to story-based, horror, adventure, exploration, dramatic and historic plotlines. While there’s another that thrives on online battle royale, RPG, and MOBA games.
Here we have the list of top 5 female gamers from around the world:
The Highest Paid Female Gamer
Katherine “Mystik” Gunn, at the age of 14, with the emergence of online games, stepped into the world of challenges, as she traveled under the patronage of her father to attend tournaments of Street Fighter, Halo, and other games. After her victory in World Championship Gaming (WCG) series, completing Ultimate Gamer, and two seasons of CGS, she caught the attention of the Guinness Book of World Records as she was listed in the Guinness World Games 2016 as the highest-paid female player.
She was part of the professional team Envy, presenter, and writer of the weekly BluePrint webisode series. To be close to her family and away from traveling, Kat recently resigned, but still shares her gameplay via live broadcast on Twitch to be in contact with her fan base and spread awareness of healthy eating, positive thinking, and philosophy of fair play.

Blizzard Esports Champion
Li Xiaomeng, known in the games as Liooon, is a professional Chinese player for Hearthstone, and the first girl to win the Hearthstone Grandmasters World Finals for a prize of $200,000.
It’s interesting that someone in one of the waiting lines for the Hearthstone Championship told Liooon: “If you’re a girl, don’t wait in the line here, this isn’t for you.”
Liooon called on girls to fulfill their dreams in her speech: “I want to say to all girls who have a dream to join esports tournaments for glory, if you want to do it and have faith in yourself, you just have to go ahead.”
