Nice numbers. How many make a million a year though?

Google doesn't no the answer so that means none ;)

At the same time, it's not too shabby for a captain of a team that didn't do very well at the LCS this year.

Koreans make a ridiculous amount, nearing 2-4 mill. They're the superstars of their country.

This also given the amount the game makes. He is getting less then 1% of the total game revenue.

But still, good for him!

That is really amazing! I am pretty sure he puts lots of effort in and has earned it in a very competitive gaming environment. When you look at how many people play LOL, you REALLY have to be good to rise to the top!

This goes to show that that gaming fraternity as well as the overall sponsorships are improving gradually, which should in turn promote gaming (I hope). Who can now say that gaming cannot be claimed as a valid eSport? Perhaps this will drive other gamers to excel as well.

Good for him. Wish competitive e-Sports had been a valid career option when I was a kid! :)
