Dota 2 Pro Team NewBee Recognized by Guinness World Records
The aftermath of the biggest prizepool in the history of gaming has naturally resulted in the 5 players with the highest prize amount earned in gaming.
Prize for 1st place at The International 4 was over $5.000.000 so since a Dota 2 team consists of 5 players, each of the NewBee players has earned $1.000.000.
While it’s reported that most of NewBee was already financially wealthy, the captain xiao8 has had a very controversial story, from being a model student, to dropping out of it to playing games while lying to his parents, and finally marrying a famous beauty Zhao Jie and winning the record 1st place at TI4!
Against a lot of rumours, xiao8 said he was just going to take vacations with his new wife and not completely retire from the scene, so it’s very likely that NewBee will keep together as a team.
Here is a highlight video of the Grand Finals. Once again, congratulations to NewBee!
