Who says you can’t make a career out of playing video games?

European eSports team OG were the big winners at the International Dota 2 championships, taking home $14.5 million CAD following Saturday’s final victory at Rogers Arena.

More than $33 million CAD in prize money was up for grabs, distributed among the 18 teams that competed, based on their results.

Second-place earned $5 million CAD, while the last-place team took home more than $82,000 CAD.

Dubbed The International, it was the largest eSports event ever hosted in Vancouver, with a sellout crowd paying $250 per ticket on the final day of competition.
