The Riches of Emiru
How rich is Emiru? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned in just a few years through a successful career in streaming. Her online fame has led her to numerous opportunities including partnerships with companies, and as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and League of Legends
Very little is known about Emiru’s life before her rise to fame online as she has not talked a lot about her family, childhood and education. At a young age, she became very passionate about video games, especially which she would continue to play for many years.
LoL is a multiplayer online battle arena created by Riot Games. inspired by the popular mod “Defense of the Ancients” (DotA) from the video game “Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne”. The game is free to play, but allows players to use real money to buy cosmetics and other items, a practice commonly known as micro transactions. In the game, players assume the role of a summoner who controls a champion with unique abilities. He or she then teams up with other summoner-controlled champions to face an enemy team of champions. The goal for most games is to destroy the enemies Nexus, which lies at the heart of their base.
After completing her high school education, she then looked towards streaming as a possible means for her career and for her to work in a field she is very passionate about. She then created an account on the live streaming platform Twitch. It is a video game focused live streaming platform, which was created as a spin-off from the general interest streaming platform Justin.tv. Since then, Twitch has become the main focus of the developers, with the latter dissolving, and Twitch gaining access to other types of streaming.
In 2014, Twitch was considered one of the largest sources of internet traffic in the US, especially as streamers receive commissions on the sales of games they play; they can also gain donations directly from their viewers. The website has over two million broadcasters monthly, and over 15 million accessing the website on a daily basis, and an average of a million concurrent users. She streamed regularly and played “LoL” a lot, improving her skill significantly. That plus her attractive looks and her sudden association with professional gamer Dyrus, helped her followership increase significantly. She currently has over 160,000 followers on her account.
Dyrus and Other Endeavors
Marcus Hill – more commonly known as Dyrus – is a retired “LoL” player, best known for gaining popularity as a part of the professional team Team SoloMid (TSM), in which he played as the top laner for the group. He won several League of Legends Championship Series for the team, and also appeared in several World Championships. He decided to retire from competitive play after the 2015 World Championships, but continued with his career as a streamer, still supported by TSM. His stream often attracts viewer counts of 5,000 to 15,000 on a regular basis.
