We added up the tournaments with a total prize of more than 10,000 CNY, there are 24 tournaments, 6 of them are offline, and the others played with online.

We have to say thank you to all of the sponsors in 2018, we will continue working hard in 2019!

The most important factor of attracting the players is prizes, in 2018, 120 got most prizes, he is ranking at the first place with 33,615 USD, meanwhile he is followed by Lyn and Moon.

You may find out that the prizes are slight lower since 11th, most of them have less than 30,000 CNY a year, and these are not enough to let them play Warcraft III with full-time.

Luckily, we are going to have Reforged Edition, and the prizes will be increased so much in this year, we believe their life will be better in this year.

In the first table, you may see that Lyn was dominating in the first half of 2018, we may say he dominating the late period of patch 1.28.

Since we had patch 1.30, Moon became the new "King" in 2018 and got so many Champion.

However, 120 got the title in the tournaments with higher prizes, the prizes of Master's Coliseum let him leading in the Ranking of Prizes.

When we added up all the tournaments, including the minor tournaments, the result will be so different.

In 2018, Happy played in many European Tournaments, resulting 55 Champions, 3 Runner-ups, 4 Third Places, his win rate in Grand Finals was 94.8%, let's look at the results of Foggy, Sonik, FoCuS, Lucifer, they got so many Runner-ups, you may see how terrible Happy is. However, Happy got only 4,280 USD, and ranking 14th on the Ranking of Prizes.
