Total earnings that each players made through tournaments according to Business Insiders.

This looks insane, but if we consider esports on the same level as other sports, I think they aren't actually making that much. This issue is that we are all bias toward the fact that they make money playing something we consider a hobby. @nshen1 @lyricalmotion @piupiupenguin If you guys have seen any documentaries about SC2 players, you would know that they spend most of their day practicing, just like any other athletes.
@blackmage Oh i know, I was just wondering what is going to happen in the future to LoL :)
