Highest Earning CS2/CS:GO Teams of All Time

So far, we have covered highest highest-earning CS2 pros and CS2 pros with the most Major wins, but we have yet to talk about any teams! In this article, we are highlighting the highest-earning CS2 and CS:GO teams of all time(we bet you can guess what the next article in the series is :). Remember, CS2 team's earnings are as much a product of performance as seniority, so a few of these teams are here as a result of decades of commitment to the game, while others are here thanks to consistently high results and big tournament wins.

Now, let's dive into the highest-earning CS2 and CS:GO teams of all time:

Natus Vincere(NAVI): $10,294,059

Since 2009, Natus Vincere, commonly abbreviated to NAVI, has been near the top of Counter-Strike. From winning the first 3 tournaments they ever played as an organization to winning the first-ever CS2 major in Copenhagen, NaVi has either been at the top, or within reach of it for its entire existence. It is both their enduring commitment to Counter-Strike and their consistent elite performance that has made them the only CS2 team to have 8 figures of tournament winnings, and they deserve every penny.

Astralis: $9,981,884

Next up is the team that most of you likely expected to be on top: Astralis. Astralis is widely considered to be the greatest team of all time thanks to their incredible era where they won 4 majors and dominated all of professional Counter-Strike for 3+ years. Though the team has recently suffered a tragic decline from the top of CS, they still boast nearly 10 million USD in tournament earnings. Considering that the org is just 8 years old compared to NAVI's 15 years of operation, it's more than clear that its financial successes are thanks to commendable performances.

FaZe Clan: $8,608,947

Just 2 days younger than Astralis, FaZe's Counter-Strike team has been playing in tournaments since the first months of 2016 and already amassed winnings that average more than $1,000,000 per year over their time in Counter-Strike. In the modern era of CS2, FaZe has proved to be the most dominant and talented team in the game for quite some time, and they just may be coming for Astralis's GOAT title, and perhaps overtaking their tournament winnings too.

Fnatic: $6,047,043

It's been quite some time since Fnatic was in its prime as a Counter-Strike organization, but that only makes their $6 million in tournament winnings even more impressive, considering they earned the majority of the money in the early years of CS:GO and the late years of Counter-Strike 1.6 and Source when prize pools were a fraction of what they are today.

Team Liquid: $5,912,769

North America's only team to make it into the top 10 highest-earning Counter-Strike teams is Team Liquid, who has earned just short of $6 million throughout their 9 years in Counter-Strike. Though their number is just over half of NAVI's, it is worth noting that Team Liquid doesn't have any major wins, which gave upwards of $1 million per major to FaZe, NaVi, and Astralis. Rather, their consistent 1st and 2nd place tournaments in S-Tier tournaments over the last 5 years have owned them quite a sum, and their earning from the Intel Grand Slam alone makes up $1,000,000 of this sum.
