You guys like LoL right? The prize pool for this single tournament is $3.2 million less than all the money awarded in the history of competitive LoL. o.O

It was something more along the lines of a three day tournament entering the realm of an entire games existence worth of prize money. Each of the 5 members of the winning team will become the largest grossing esports competitors ever, overnight.
