Have you ever wondered just who is the highest earning European Call of Duty player? Well, check out our top 20 list of European players below, which will be updated after every major tournament.
Call of Duty has been a staple of console esports since the release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare back in 2007. Whilst North American players have traditionally dominated the scene, there has been an ever-increasing European influence as more players flock to play the iconic series professionally.
Before the start of the Black Ops 4 season, Activision announced that roster region locks would no longer be a barrier and International teams began forming. European players have also moved to the United States to be closer to the dominant North American teams – with players like Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall and Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris heading up the strong new FaZe Clan roster.
In theory, having better regular access to the higher caliber of teams should lead to improved play and more tournament wins which would propel some players up the list. However, it hasn’t quite worked out like that just yet.
Even though we’ve seen the rise in other European nations, like the Spaniards of Team Heretics, making their way to the CWL Pro League – the success still hasn’t matched that of the dominant North Americans.
Our list, which features both online and offline winnings from the console section of the esportsearnings.com, includes players that have starred for organizations like Splyce, Unilad and more over the years. The list also includes some rising talents who have scored event wins in more recent history when prize pools have been higher than ever.
Long-time Splyce player Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley tops the list after earning a career-high of over $90,000 in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. He is closely followed by former teammate Ben ‘Bance’ Bance who is now orgless and played under the UNITS tag at Anaheim following the teams split from Denial Esports.
The full top 20 list, which includes some names that you won’t have seen competing in Call of Duty for quite some time, can be found below.
