League of Legends Worlds 2014
We’ve discussed Tournaments like Dota 2 paying out 2.9 Million in one competition and 1.42 Mill on the line for the winning squad in an earlier article. Well, League of Legends came pretty close to that this time around in their World Championships! Throughout the tournament Riot came out and released that there was $2 million bucks going out in prize money. As we know, League of Legends is the SECOND highest paying eSports game behind Dota 2, and they came to prove that point in this one!
We should obviously start with the winners in this one. That means Samsung White took home the Grand Prize of $1 Million Dollars! Wooo, I might have to take a breather after that one. I’ll show you guys the breakdown on the entire Championships below:
I know what you’re thinking. “Hey, that’s more then 2 mil they musta dished out!”. Well, you’re right, it was about $2,130,000! Pretty close Riot, pretty close. Sure it doesn’t beat Dota 2, but hell, I’ll take it if I’m any one of the winners!
