OG’s win at TI9 was historic for various reasons. They became the first-ever team to successfully defend their title, by becoming the first-ever repeat champions. They’ve also set a number of records as well.

All 5 of the OG players: ana, Topson, Ceb, JerAx and N0tail also move into the record books by breaking Fortnite player Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf’s record of largest payout for a player in a single esports tournament, with each of them receiving a whopping $3,151,126 USD for winning TI9.

With that n0tail becomes the richest player in esports history with career winnings totalling a jaw-dropping $6,878,030 USD.

He is closely followed by the rest of his 4 teammates.
