The rise of video streaming platforms like Twitch and gaming platforms like จีคลับ have meant quite an exciting development phase for Esports. These Esports have become exceedingly popular with pro gamers competing for humongous amounts of money, and it is a surprisingly lucrative activity. Some winners are taking home millions of dollars each year, and since there are no signs that the popularity of Esports is slowing down, we predict a continuous increase in prize money across the board.
Who are these superstars making it big in the world of Esports? Read on to learn who they are and why they make this illustrious list.
