NewBee Team Entered the Guinness Book of Records

Thanks to the victory on TI4 Chinese champions entered their names in the famous Book.

Now officially a tidy sum of $5,028,308 became the largest amount of money earned by a professional e-sports team within the frame of one competition. This amount looks even more stupendous in yuans - 31 million! Net of taxes and various fees, each member of NewBee received a little more than $630,000. Agree, not bad addition to the scholarships.

The dynamics of prize money increasing is easy to understand by a simple example: Swedish team “The Alliance” (winner of The International 2013) got "only" $1,437,204, and our sportsmen from Na`Vi earned exactly 1 million in 2011. What will be the amount of prize pool in the next year, it is even difficult to imagine. At this pace, the figure could easily exceed $10,000,000.

Although the last The International ended more than a week ago and all fans of Dota 2 know its results, but exactly NewBee’s entering into the Guinness Book of Records really popularizes e-sports within the general population. Due to such impressive and great sums of money, many gamers start to think seriously about a professional career.
