smooya: "s1mple and NiKo make over $50,000 a month"

Former fnatic player Owen "smooya" Butterfield has revealed the salaries of some esports athletes during a live on his Twitch channel. Among other things, he stated that Alexandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Nikola "NiKo" Kovač, who feature the pool of the best players in the world, earn more than $50,000 per month.

Copenhagen Flames or Entropiq? Copenhagen Flames are really underpaid. When they made it to the top 8 of the Major, they had $2,000 a month.

ZywOo gets $40,000? He gets more than that. GamerLegion? Like $5,000. I think Copenhagen Flames get $5,000. They were supposed to join Complexity and get $10,000 salary, but then Complexity pulled the plug. I actually don't know anything about m0NESY. s1mple and NiKo make over $50,000 a month, but they deserve it. SINNERS? Like $4,000.

The Briton added that the information on the players’ earning was obtained from conversations with various representatives of the professional community.
