Pro Apex Legends player Phillip “ImperialHal” Dosen is consistently one of the most popular streamers of the genre on Twitch. When a leak revealed Twitch streamers’ payouts last week, ImperialHal came in at number 100 on the site’s list of the highest paid numbers.
From August 2019 to October 2021, ImperialHal alone deposited $ 886,999.17 in Twitch payouts.

While this number is impressive on its own, it doesn’t include a wide range of other sources of income. ImperialHal also receives donations from viewers, its TSM salary, income from other social media such as YouTube, and sponsorship. He also runs a boot camp where aspiring Apex players are coached directly by ImperialHal.
In about the same period, from the beginning of the competitive apex scene in early 2019 to today, ImperialHal earned more than 185,000 US dollars in prize money in tournaments, making the TSM pro the highest earning player in the competitive apex, just ahead of teammate Jordan “Reps “Wolfe.
While some streamers have denied the numbers leaked last week, the earnings give a full view of the huge rewards for some of the site’s top players. With Apex gaining popularity on Twitch this summer, ImperialHal’s stream enjoyed the benefits. In June 2021, he achieved a record attendance of almost 90,000 at the ALGS championships.
Each night, he can expect around 15,000 people to tune in to watch him play Apex. ImperialHal now has over 1.1 million followers on the platform and is the 68th most popular streamer on the site according to TwitchTracker, which shows that its population has continued to grow.
