To people who say "people earn too much playing games wtf"

Just like in football. Players fill stadiums, they sell merchandise, they are an image for their club, their country, they make countless people happy when they win and generate billions of dollars in revenue. When somebody asks why do they earn that much money, you should reply: "Well, do YOU move people and revenue just like them in your office?"

Same goes for any eSports players. Actually, they don't earn that much in comparison to other massive entertainment businesses (it's a young industry after all). Chaox is liked by so many people that he receives donations and lots of traffic even if he's not playing. Would you generate the same kind of response? Of course not, that's why he earns more than you.

It's not too late to try guys, just don't hate on the players and how revenue works. Don't think they are earning too much for doing so little, they are actually generation tons of money for their companies and sponsors and that's why they get payed in big bucks.

Many Korean pro gamers make just as much money as real sports players do.

I have a problem with the ammount of money thrown around in sport and entertainment in general. Sport as a whole sees capital in the quintillions every year around the world. Yet that capital never truly goes back into the economy or infrastructure. Yes, you pay tax, however the capital generated by the sport and entertainment industry only really circle in one area; the sport and entertainment industry. Some of these are tax exempt organizations which makes the effect even more pronounced. Yes, tourism and such are factors. Yet tourism sees the same issue with 80% of the revenue generated never leaving the tourism area. So basically you have generators that do not benefit economy outside their respective fields. Yes there are exceptions. Not extremely often though.

I honestly feel that sportsman get paid way too much. The capital generated by sport alone in America within 5 years would be able to buy America out of its debt twice over. I would rather see that money go toward economical growth, infrastructural growth, job creation, education and trade.

That's just my opinion though.
