You should ask jonty about this!
They made 4.5* million, do not forget about taxes !
csgo has had 12 million dollars in prize money so far so thats really crazy
Not sure about esports like CS, but in regular sports, salary and tournament winnings is only about 10-20% of earnings. Most of the rest is through advertisements and brand endorsements.
Astralis is operating millions in debt btw
Ngl the org just discriminates their players most of the money goes straight to the org. Astralis itself is a shit org
Playing cs, you need to try for 5 years and become the best team in the world for several years. And for this you will receive 9 million prize money.
Playing dota2, you can lose a player 2 months before the main tournament of the year, take a new one, go through the open qualifiers, win the tournament and earn $11,234,158. Then the players of such a team can not play the game for half a year, come back after a while and win another such tournament, earning $15,620,181.
There is a year's difference between these tournaments. A terrible injustice
yea and OG made over 34 million in prize earnings in 6 years
