How much money does Will make?
Esports Earnings put Will’s online earnings at $91,800 through the first six months of 2020:
That works out to an average of $15,300 per month.
And that’s much more than Will earned in years prior – his previous high for online earnings was $18,183 back in 2016 – mainly due to video game tournaments being moved online due to COVID-19.
It’s worth noting however that those numbers only account for prize money Will earned from online tournaments. Depending on his contract with Complexity Gaming, he may also be earning a salary, he might have to give up a percentage of his prize money, and there could be all sorts of other stipulations.

How did Will get started?
I couldn’t find any good info on this but it’s a safe bet that he played a TON of video games growing up, and has probably put 1000’s of hours into CS:GO.
Presumably he got so good at the game that he was able to start competing in bigger and better tournaments.
Here’s a video from Complexity Gaming talking about what it takes to become a pro gamer:
