SumaiL’s net worth in 2020
He was once a wonderchild who conquered the DOTA 2 scene in his teenage years. His most decorated accomplishment was winning the biggest tournament in esports, The International 2015 as a 16-year old prodigy, where he became the youngest player to win DOTA’s most prestigious event. His achievements have not only made him into a DOTA 2 superstar but also an inspiration for teenagers as TIME Magazine placed him in their list of 30 most influential teenagers in 2016. This is SumaiL.
Amid the greatness that he exhibited, Syed “SumaiL” Hassan has been a product of controversy as seen when he was accused for Evil Geniuses’ decision to forego their influential captain and drafter Peter “ppd” Dager. He also has that arrogant and abrasive personality which was evident when he mentioned that money is more important than winning trophies in one of his interviews, a statement which does raise some eyebrows but eventually makes sense when he mentioned the value of money over the trophy.
Was he trying to be that heel in professional wrestling so that he could add some flavor in DOTA’s storyline or is he sincere about his answers? Regardless of your point-of-view, his networth alone is enough to speak about his legacy.
SUMAIL’S NETWORTH IS AT $3.6 MILLION
SumaiL ranks 11th in overall esports earnings at $3.6 million, majority of which was caused by his success in TI5 where he showcased his dominance in the midlane. He earned $1.7 million that year, where a lion’s share was contributed by his TI5 victory.
His rewards have not only made him into the youngest TI winner but also as the youngest millionaire in esports history. While most teenagers would crumble from the pressure of playing in the biggest tournaments, SumaiL kept an ice in his veins a trait that pushed him to proudly proclaim himself as the best midlaner in DOTA history.
This has always been a primary reason for his success.
Though SumaiL has accomplised a lot in his teenage years, it was no easy ride for him. When he first came to Evil Geniuses as an unproven 15-year old, SumaiL was given the Herculean role of filling the shoes left by one of the greatest players in DOTA 2 history, Artour “Arteezy” Babaev. At first he struggled to make an impact as his performances in his first LAN tournament in 2015 proved that he was the weakest link in EG’s roster.
But he was never fazed by the criticism bestowed on him as he bounced back in his second LAN tournament, DAC 2015. It was in that grand finals where his desire to win wowed audiences where he bounced back from an abysmal start only for his Storm Spirit to blitz past the opposition as the game progressed. He eventually won his first major trophy, a gold edged sword bigger than his noodle-like biceps.
From there he propelled himself to greater heights which culminated with his performances in TI5.
And even in those years when he never won in the biggest spectacle in DOTA 2, he still managed to showcase that insane drive as seen when he spearheaded his team to victory over EHOME in The International 2016, where his team made miracles by coming back from a mega creeps situation.
His performances in The International 2018 has likewise earned him a legendary reputation as he single-handedly carried EG to a respectable third place finish. His output during that tournament was on god-tier levels as none of his teammates could match with his overall output and consistency. He was simply untouchable in the midlane which proved his status as the King of the Midlane, a title that he bestowed upon himself.
