Rocket League Ranks – Reported Official Salaries
#10 Jacob “Jacob” McDowell – $31,801.50
Jacob is a professional Rocket League player from USA. He plays for NRG Esports team. NRG Esports are the top team of 2017, placing 1st at RLCS Season 2 and 3 NA Finals, and 3rd at RLCS Season 3 Finals.
Their most recent success has been the 1st place at FACEIT X Games Invitational 2017, cashing in a $30,000. The prize was evenly split amongst Jacob and his teammates, Fireburner_ (#9 in Rocket League earning ranks) and GarrettG (#11 in Rocket League earning ranks)
#9 Jayson “Fireburner_” Nunez – $31,971.50
With just a $170 on his teammate Jacob, USA’s Fireburner_ sits at #9 spot by earnings on the current Rocket League ranks.
Both he and Jacob have officially signed for NRG Esports back in October 2016. Ever since then, the duo has been the staple of NRG Esports Rocket League ranks success.
#8 David “Miztik” Lawrie – $34,008.79
Originating from UK, Miztik has been bouncing amongst FlipSid3 Tactics, Northern Gaming and Mock-It eSports since the beginning of his professional Rocket League career.
Despite his turbulent team history, he’s been consistently hitting top Rocket League ranks in the tournaments so far, earning a good chunk of money.
#7 Pierre “Turbopolsa” Silfver – $34,116.67
A professional player from Sweden, Turbopolsa has only recently been officially signed with Gale Force eSports.
Participating in all major tournaments for a variety of teams so far, Turbopolsa’s form culminated in the last two months. He’s been consistently hitting top 2-3 regardless of the teams he plays for.
His best recent result has definitely been the 1st place at RLCS Season 3 Finals. He made $18,333.33 just from that.
#6 Courant “Kaydop” Alexandre – $34,622.86
Kaydop is another recent official name on the Gale Force eSports roster. French based professional, Kaydop consistently hits top 2 Rocket League ranks in all major tournaments.
His earnings have stacked up over the years, making him #6 on the Rocket League earning ranks list.
#5 Marius “gReazy” Ranheim – $35,444.16
Coming in as a replacement when M1k3Rules left FlipSid3 Tactics back in August 2016, 21-year old Norwegian gReazy has lost some of his glow this year.
Is it because he left FlipSid3 tactics and joined the Esports giant Team EnVyUs?
It remains to be seen, but for now, he’s still #5 on Rocket League ranks based on his FlipSid3 Tactics earnings.
#4 David “Deevo” Morrow – $37,850.00
A 17-year old from UK, Deevo has made a name for himself back in 2016.
However, he had his biggest payday this year.
Playing with Turbopolsa and remkoe for Northern Gaming in this year’s RLCS Season 3 Finals, he came back home with $18,333.33 in his pockets.
He was recently signed to Team EnVyUs in their big move into the Rocket League Esports scene.
#3 Remco “remkoe” den Boer – $38,334.05
Coming from Netherlands at 22 years of age, remkoe has had one of the most consistent Rocket League ranks since May 2016.
He too was recently signed to Team EnVyUs, but they’ve been unable to win anything yet.
Prize money stacks up though, and consistently placing high in all major tournaments has brought him to #3 on the Rocket League earning ranks.
#2 Mark “Markydooda” Exton – $42,603.58
One half of the perennial FlipSid3 Tactics dynamic duo, Markydooda, together with Kuxir97, has been the name of the Rocket League Esports scene.
Establishing himself from the get go, he’s been nothing but winning in 2015. 2016 saw FlipSid3 tactics still largely at the top.
However, this year has been rather problematic for FlipSid3 Tactics. Competition has caught up and gReazy has left them for Team EnVyUs.
With Miztik back again, can they regain their former glory?
#1 Francesco “Kuxir97” Cinquemani – $42,669.29
The Italian born and raised, Kuxir97 rode on top of the early Rocket League Esports waves.
With the playing field more even now, it remains to be seen whether him and Markydooda can keep it up with the current teams at the top of Rocket League ranks.
There are some new kids on the block now, and with big organizations like Team EnVyUs entering the fray, future is full of challenges.
