Dota 2 is a highly competitive game with a steep learning curve but has an extremely rewarding (or not) prize structure for those who have managed to get themselves in the upper echelons of the competition.

Today, we take a look at the top 3 wealthiest North American Dota 2 players.

Saahil “Universe” Arora – $3,057,237.67

ESL One Hamburg 2019

Arguably the most stable offlaner to exist in the game’s history, Universe has been the backbone of any team he has represented.

His longest tenure as a pro player came with Evil Geniuses, and together with his team, he won The International 2015; the crown jewel of Dota 2.

He is mostly known for his impeccable plays on Dark Seer and Earth Shaker, and ranks second in North America’s wealthiest esports players’ list.

Peter “PPD” Dager – $3,029,331.36


Universe was the backbone of Evil Geniuses, but PPD was the brains.

The legendary captain transformed EG into the behemoth that it truly is and brought home North America’s lone The International 2015 trophy.

He led EG from the fore and carefully guided the team to the ultimate glory because of his innate drafting skills and intellectual prowess – a suitable trait for quite a vocal persona.

Clinton “Fear” Loomis – $2,564,313.19

StarLadder Minor S3

The old man of Dota, Fear is widely regarded as one of, if not the best, players to ever exist in the game.

He’s one of the true old stalwarts that has stuck with Dota through thick and thin over the course of his teenage/adult life.

The most versatile player to grace the game, Fear has played in all positions; carry, offlane, and support, and is second to none in terms of skill.

A well respected individual in the community, Fear won The International 2015 together with Universe and PPD, his North American teammates.
