World Electronic Sports Games are a dream coming true for every esports fan out there – an international championship that brings together only the best of the best going at each other for the right to call themselves champions and for their share of an amazing prize pool.

Overall, backed up by AliSports, the total prize pool for all the games was 5,5 million dollars back in 2016, while 1,5 million went to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitors.

Such a huge amount of money presents an incredible incentive for teams and players, and it also helps the further development of all the esports. The benefits of such high investments will be shown in the future when esports become an even bigger force than they are now.
