Top 20 highest earning Overwatch pros of all time
As Overwatch seemingly draws to the end of the OWL-era, there are plenty of players who have made their money in the hit Blizzard FPS. However, who reigns supreme as the highest earner of all time?
While top-tier Overwatch pro play has existed since early 2016 with APEX, it didn’t really hit the forefront of everyone’s minds until the Overwatch League in 2018. With big franchises fronting big money to play in the League, no matter what esport you followed, it was hard not to take notice.
Now all these years late, with the League possibly nearing its end, just how lucrative has it all been? Players were earning big salaries, but there were still hefty amounts of prize money on the line too. If you won the title in any given year, that’s over $1 million right there for the team.
The top 20 is dominated by OWL champions. San Francisco Shock players make up the majority of the top earners, but plenty of others from the championship-winning Dallas Fuel and Shanghai Dragons make an appearance.
The first Western player to appear on the list was super, thanks to his time on the San Francisco Shock and his two back-to-back rings.
With hundreds of thousands on the line at every event, teams and players are always changing positions on the list.
This list only includes prize money that players have won while competing in Overwatch and does not include any earnings from other titles, or their salary from their respective organizations.
The full top 20 list, according to Liquipedia, can be found below.
