Virtus.Pro Boasts Highest Overall Earnings in Counter-Strike History

By   /   Feb 1, 2017

At the conclusion of the weekend’s ELEAGUE Major, Russian esports organization Virtus.Pro has become the highest earning team in Counter-Strike history.

According to data provided by Esports Earnings, all five members have raked in over $400,000 from tournament winnings during their careers as professional Counter-Strike players.

Previously, Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg was the sole Counter-Strike player in this regard who enjoyed a lonely spot at number 74 in the list of top 100 highest earners in esports.

Both Filip “Neo” Kubski and Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas have jumped over the legend to land at number 68 and 69 respectively. Jarosław “Pasha” Jarząbkowski finds himself at number 79 while Paweł “Byali” Bieliński at 97. Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski is the only Virtus.Pro member who is just outside the top 100, landing at 101.

It should be noted that both Neo and Taz have enjoyed storied careers in Counter-Strike 1.6 while Byali and Snax only earned their share through Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

  • 68. Filip “Neo” Kubski ($560,569.85)
  • 69. Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas ($556,809.85)
  • 79. Jarosław “Pasha” Jarząbkowski ($458,944.67)
  • 97. Paweł “Byali” Bieliński ($409,072.49)
  • 101. Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski ($405,412.05)

Earlier this week, the Virtus.Pro management raised the salary of its players to an astounding $25,000 per month. As one of the best teams in the competitive scene, it only makes sense to not only reward players for their achievements but also provide them a content environment to bloom in.

Besides Virtus.Pro, there are a couple of Team EnVyUs members as well who have registered impressive earnings. Veteran player Nathan “NBK” Schmitt is at number 80 with $457,679.54. He’s joined by team member Vincent “Happy” Cervoni Schopenhauer at number 89 with $423,231.28.

Elsewhere, there’s also Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo of SK Gaming at number 88 with $425,084.76.

The figures just confirm how far professional Counter-Strike has come. The massive increase in prize pools and investments over the years have started to show. This is only the beginning, with so many more for the popular shooter to achieve.
