Whether you are a loyal fan of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, League of Legends, Dota 2, or CS:GO, you must have dreamed of becoming a professional player! Then finding your teammates, building a team, participate in some competition, win your first tournament and get your first prize, and get discovered by some and become a professional player’s dream! Now wake up from your imagination and accept the truth, but it does not mean that players have no chance now! Practice on yourself slowly, and believe that one day you will be seen by others or everyone!
Back to the main topic, I believe that the players must also be familiar with the professional players in our country. For example, MidOne, xNova, and Mushi in “Dota2”. Or there are players such as OzoraVeki, QaspieL in “League of Legends” and so many countless players in other games and leagues! As we all can see, according to the rankings, the top 15 earning players in our country are all playing “Dota 2”! You can imagine how high the price of “Dota 2” is to attract so many players!
First, let’s take a look at our country’s number one xNova (Ye Jianwei), currently in EHOME, and ranking first in our country to earn the most bonuses, while ranking 35 in the global. He started his professional career in 2015 and is 23 years old this year. However, there are still 44 games that he have participated in, of which 9 games were won, 10 games were runner up, and 7 games were third place. A total of $1,888,591.78 was obtained. (7,759,279.33 Malaysian Ringgit) Out of the 44 tournaments where xNova received a cash prize, the largest was $817,029.60 from The International 2018 on August 25, 2018. His 2nd place finish makes up 43.26% of his total prize money won.
On May 6, 2018, xNova reached $100,000 in total prize money won with a $100,000.00 cash prize from his 1st place finish at EPICENTER XL. Prize money from 17 tournaments got him to that point.
Next is MidOne (Ye Naizheng)! Born in 1996, he also joined his career in 2015 and is currently playing for Team SMG. He, who ranks second in Malaysia, is not weak globally, ranking 43rd. A total of $1,786,891.47 (approximately 7,342,337.05 Malaysian Ringgit) was earned from 60 tournaments. Among them, he earned first place is 15 times, runner up 6 times, and the third place is 9 times.
Out of the 60 tournaments awarding cash prizes that MidOne had competed in, the largest amount was $411,960.80 from The International 2019 on August 25, 2019. He placed 4th, making up 23.05% of his total prize money won.
On July 24, 2016, MidOne arrived at the $100,000 milestone, winning $7,500.00 and placing 3rd at StarLadder & i-League StarSeries – Season 2 (Dota 2). Prize money from 10 tournaments got him to that point.
At the same time, he also created 3 records of “Dota 2” Southeast Asian servers, that is, the first player to achieve 8000, 9000, and 10000 MMR.
Next is Mushi (Cai Yifeng), who is ranked third. He is already 30 years old and can be regarded as the OG of “Dota2”. He is ranked third in our country, ranked 89th in the global, and he is still very strong since he is still in the top 100! Currently Mushi has earned 4,206,602.96 Malaysian Ringgits from 89 matches. Among them, he won 27 times, more than MidOne and xNova! Second place 10 times, third place 13 times. However, there are not many players who have earned more than one million in total, and there are only these three in Malaysia.
The most money that Mushi has won from a single tournament was $290,786.40 from The International 2016 on August 13, 2016. He placed 4th, making up 28.39% of his total prize money won.
Like MidOne, he also plays for TeamSMG. Team SMG is an e-sports club founded on March 1, 2019 by male Chinese pop singer Lin Junjie. TeamSMG currently owns the “PUBG Mobile” branch. SMG is a personal fashion brand created by Singaporean musician JJ Lin, whose full name is Still Moving Under Gunfire. By the way, almost all Malaysians are in Team SMG!
