The StarLadder Major has kicked off its New Legends stage and now teams are fighting to make it into the playoffs for a shot at the lions share of the $1 million prize pool.
With that in mind, we can reflect on which players have brought in the big bucks over the years for CS:GO.
The Danes of Astralis still have a hold on the top five spots, however, several players in the New Legends stage are close on their heels. Jake “stewie2k” Yip of Team Liquid comes in at sixth behind Astralis and is less than $40,000 from breaking the million dollar barrier.
Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth is at the top of the board with $1,475,021.90, putting the North American close to $500,000 behind meaning he won’t be dethroned even if Liquid take home the Major.
Although not favored to go very far in the event, several members of the MIBR lineup are around the $950,000 mark and have the potentially to rise above $1 million as well.
A few members of the list won’t be moving at all as coldzera, JW, flusha, and KRiMZ won’t be participating at all.
