Only One Female eSports Player In The Top 500

Get gud scrubs. I kid...I kid... In all seriousness, the thing that stands out to me the most is that 328 eSports players earn more that $330,000 per year playing video games. 😲

According to that report, which uses data from EsportsEarnings, not one woman appears in the list of the 300 highest-earning esports players. Starcraft II player Sasha ‘Scarlett’ Hostyn,, whose total earnings amount to more than $330,000, only comes in at number 329. The second highest earner, Halo: Reach’s Katherine ‘Mystik’ Gunn, doesn’t even make the top 500 with her career earnings of $122,000.
