We looked at some data regarding the top 4 esports organisations in terms of earnings and how they earnt their way to the top. Evil Geniuses is top of the tables earning over $11,000,000 over 469 tournaments, surprisingly Newbee, an organisation with teams in only Dota 2, Hearthstone and LoL, is second only winning 31 tournaments.
