Dude are you crazy? 50k a month? NO WAY. Thats over 600k a year. No freaking way. CEO's of corporates dont make that much sometimes, with Years of college. Or even doctors who go to school for 6-8 years dont come out and make that type of money. No way in hell pros are doing that. Who are 18-26 year old no education or anything. This is League of Legends, not the NFL, NBA, MLB. Some last string pro sport players make about that. This game isn't worldwide known on ESPN and stuff. Yea its known by the gaming community and of course the LoL community. These kids arent getting drafted and stuff by eSports. If that was the case making 50k a month they have multiple mansions, 2-4 LUXURY cars (Farrari's, Porsches, Lambos). No way bro. You are way off. Maybe 5k a month sounds better. Not 50k. You're crazy.

Wingsofdeathx has commented about it before, saying he makes enough from streaming to afford his apt, and pay all of his bills and be "comfortable" And he literally gets 20k+ viewers everytime he streams. 30k+ on a good night.

When did I say you couldn't? I agree its more around 50k. NO WAY is it around 100k+. If streamers are telling you guys that they are lying. Especially if streamers are telling you they make 50k A MONTH(To the guy who i quoted earlier). TOTAL BULL****. How can you be so gullible to actually believe that. Wow, that is just so absurd 50k a month is the amount of money like the top 2-4% of America makes. Actually probably top 1%. Morello use to say he will delete teemo when he gets his Ferrari (We all know it is a joke) but obviously he isnt making THAT much money. He probably making almost 6 figures but not 50k a MONTH.

I know tournaments end up being worth a lot for the people that win, but if you are just pro and don't win tournaments all the time (most of them) then I bet they make 50k on the lower end and maybe up to 85-100k for the higher end of the earning ladder?
Exactly. People think just bc they have the word "pro" as their job description they automatically think they are making millions and millions. When in reality they aren't making a quarter of that.

Unless you're consistently in the top 3 and attend EVERY tournament, the guys that you buy hamburgers from make more than you.

It honestly depends.
Unless you win something like Season 2 Championships (1 million dollars for TPA, the team that won) most of your revenue will come from streaming.
I know that someone like TheOddOne on TSM who has won some tournies, and can easily get 20k+ viewers makes 6 figures.

as a tekken tornament player i can say not as much as you would think

stuff like this is still very new and most if not all competative gamers (minus lucky few) still need day jobs. I think the best payed gamer pro of all time was Fatality making just over 1million a year and he had product lines and endorsements out the wazoo
