Dota 2 Most Successful Team
Evil Geniuses | The Highest Earning Dota 2 Team
Evil Geniuses is the North American eSports organization that has become famous the most thanks to their Dota 2 team that dominated the competition several years ago. As an organization, Evil Geniuses has expanded to different eSports competitions over the years. However, they achieved their biggest success in Dota 2 with none of the other teams coming even close.
Over the years, Evil Geniuses have left a legacy in Dota 2 competition that rarely any other team will be able to achieve. Winning many different tournaments, including those characterized as the biggest and the most important, Evil Geniuses wrote their name in the history of this competition.
The Highest Earnings
When a certain team is as successful as Evil Geniuses has been, it is completely normal to expect that their earnings will also be among the highest as well. In fact, Evil Geniuses are the team with the highest earnings in Dota 2 history ever. The last season or two might not have been the best for this team, but their previous results enabled them to maintain that title and it does not seem that at least for another two years, any team will be able to take them down from the throne.
Over the years, Evil Geniuses has managed to win $14,548,574.05 which is something that has not been achieved in any of the eSports ever. It does not seem that Evil Geniuses plan to stop anytime soon as they are still considered as one of the biggest contenders for the title at every tournament in which they participate.
Winning tournaments such as The Manila Masters, China Top, Dota Pit League Season 3, Dota 2 Asia Champions, StarLadder StarSeries and many others have been contributing a lot to the total earnings that this North American team has won. However, the biggest percentage of their total earnings comes from their participation in The International tournaments.
Currently, many consider Evil Geniuses to be the most successful Dota 2 team ever. One of the arguments for such claim is the fact that in the last three editions of The International tournament, Evil Geniuses have managed to finish the top three places in all three tournaments. This is something that no other team in the history of Dota 2 has achieved and considering the competition, it does not seem like any team will be able to achieve that anytime soon.
There is a certain connection between Evil Geniuses and the biggest Dota 2 tournament in the world as EG has been more than successful. It does not matter if they had a bad season during that year, once the International comes, Evil Geniuses increase their form and stun everyone with their performances. Because of that, it is expected that the amount of their total earnings will be increasing in the upcoming season as well. Dota 2 teams come and go, but Evil Geniuses have been one of the biggest constants of the competitions over the years.
Evil Geniuses has not only made history when it comes to the total earnings that this team has achieved. Besides that, Evil Geniuses have featured players that have also set records when it comes to their individual earnings from the competitions. Unlike any other Dota 2 team in the world, Evil Geniuses have featured six players that have won more than one million dollars while playing for this team.
A player that earned the most money is Saahil ‘UNiVeRsE’ Arora who has won almost three million dollars while playing for Evil Geniuses. The second player on that list is Sumail ‘SumaiL’ Hassan who has won more than $2.6 million. In the third and the fourth place on that list are Peter ‘ppd’ Dager and Clinton ‘Fear’ Loomis who have won more than $2.5 million. In the fifth and the sixth place on that list are Kurtis ‘Aui_2000’ Ling and Ludwig ‘Zai’ Wahlberg who have more than $1 million.
Some of those players have left the team and are currently either playing for some other team or they have retired. Despite that, Evil Geniuses always manage to find new talented players that would bring them very good results in the competitions.
