Now, he’s helped them pick up another title. The winners of The International 2015. And the winners of $6.63 million dollars. With this win under his belt, Suma1L is estimated to have earned $1.6 million dollars in his rookie year alone.
This weekend, Valve’s 2015 International Dota 2 Championships took place, pitting the strongest teams around the world against each other.
In one corner was CDEC–an all Chinese team carrying the weight of the world. Coming in as a wild card team, they managed to defy all expectations and odds, defeating the tournament favorites, LGD.
In the other corner of the finals was EG–North America’s beacon of hope. With the other North American teams knocked out, EG and Suma1L were tasked with the impossible: take down the Chinese titans.
And take down the titans, they did.
EG showed up and conquered, beating CDEC 3-1.
