Alright, we get it – gaming is officially a career option. Your mother was wrong when she said playing video games were a waste of time. Fine, but how good a career choice is it?
Well, if you play LoL, apparently a pretty good one. That is, if you manage to make it to the top five in the world. Granted, the top ten players all live in Asia, which is to be expected. But hey, the top five put together earned over a million USD. Not too shabby!
As you work your way down out of the top ten list, the averages fall to 70k, then 60, etc. Still, when converted into Rands, some South Africans could more than easily pay a bond while running around asking “Is that a rocket in your pocket?” or saying “Misery loves company”.
