‘Overwatch’ pro grabs $150,000 salary, but was too young to sign the contract

Watch out for Jay Won. The North American Overwatch star is the esport game’s highest-paid league pro, after inking a $150,000 per year contract with NRG Esports, ESPN reports.

But he didn’t get the pleasure of signing the huge contract — his mother did, because he’s only 17.

Won, who plays as “sinatraa,” was reportedly the subject of a bidding war between NRG and Cloud9. The $150,000 puts him at threefold the minimum Overwatch salary of $50,000 per annum set by Blizzard, which doesn’t include health insurance and a retirement savings plan, on top of that.

The teen, who has been competing with the North American Overwatch World Cup team, is set to take on South Korea at BlizzCon in California, in November.
