Pro gamer girl Stephanie Harvey.

When you think of pro gamers, you probably think of a group of guys slouching in gaming chairs practicing League of Legends for 12 hours a day. While you aren't far from the truth, the reality is eSports is growing fast, to a point where women are becoming a big part of the scene.

At this point playing games professionally as a woman earns enough to pay to keep a 1,000 watt power supply running 24/7 every month along with enough energy drinks to stay awake at night. With that, the list of professional female gamers is growing faster than ever. Although many of the early greats have since transitioned to livestreaming or getting a stable job that can pay rent reliably, there are enough for us to dive into 10 of our favorite female stars. Check them out below.
