Dota 2 OG Are The Highest Earning Professionals of 2019

The current two-time Dota 2 world champions are the richest eSports players in 2019 and of all time. Two victories at the international 2018 and 2019 helped them to gain these positions.

This year, Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka, Sébastien “Ceb” Debs and Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen shared the first three places in earnings, having won $ 3,163,536.20 in the DotA championships. Next comes their teammates Johan “N0tail” Sundstein with $ 3,155,536.20 and Anathan “ana” Pham, the fifth member of OG with $ 3,146,536.20.

International is known not only for the fact that this is the main tournament of the year but also for the prize pool that has been growing more and more over time. Every year, international winners become the richest cybersportsmen in the world and the OG team has won this tournament for two years in a row. In 2019, its team took home $ 15,620,181.00!

For many years, DotA 2 players have been leading the list of the richest eSports players. But recently has appeared a game that can compete with DotA. This is Fortnite, the prize pool for the tournament for this game in 2019 was $ 30 million. The player Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf who won this tournament immediately took the 6th place in terms of earnings for 2019. He earned $ 3,061,716.67 in one tournament.

Therefore, it is possible that in the future such huge prize pools in other games will finally be able to overcome the “wall” called International.

Let’s see the following interesting statistics over the past year.
