The top eSports games and stars

Esport has become a million dollar industry that is here to stay:

Dota 2 is the game where the biggest money is available, much thanks to the annual International, which had a total price amount of around 23 million euros this year. At the top of the list is the 26-year-old German Kuro “KuroKy” Takhasomi, who is the esports star that has earned the most in history, even when all games are included. He joined the International in 2017 with his Team Liquid and has also finished second and fourth in the tournament. He is one of only three people who has participated in every International since the beginning of 2011.

CS:GO is dominated by the Danish stars in Astralis (formerly Team SoloMid), which is currently dominant world-wide. There are also several names from Brazilian Mibr (former SK and Luminousity).

League of Legends has been dominated entirely by South Korea since the start. At the top of the list is 22-year-old Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok. If you include all esports, he is also the first non-Dota 2 player who has earned the most. The one who stands out in the top is also Chinese big star Jian “Uzi” Zihao.

Starcraft 2 is the only game dominated even more by South Korea than the League of Legends. Starcraft 2 has become an unofficial national sport in South Korea. The game’s top name is Cho “Maru” Seongju. The great exclamation mark is Finnish 20-year-old Joona “Serral” Sotala, who shocked the esports world in November when he became world champion after a major show, breaking the Korean dominance.

Overwatch: The very first season of the Overwatch League ended this summer and London Spitfire stood as a winner. It is also the team that dominates the list, as the team is represented by names like Gesture, Birdring, Profit, Fury, Bdosin and NUS. The Blizzard game Overwatch is yet another of the newest major esports. The second season of the league begins in February 2019.
