Ranked at #40, he is the first non Dota player to hit the mark, with winnings of $1.42 million. He is closely followed by fellow teammate Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen at $1.41 million.
The disparity between Dota and other esports is the huge prize pool offered in each event. While the biggest CS event, the Major has only recently started drawing in a prize pool of a million dollars, Dota has 5 such tournaments this year compared to 2 of CS. The International, one of Esports biggest events, has a whopping prize pool of $25 million.
The number 1 spot is held by Dota veteran Kuro “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi, with $4.16M in winnings, ahead of #2, reigning TI champion Johan “n0tail” Sundstein at $3.76 million.
