In case you are thinking of dedicating yourself to the professional skills of eSports, LG experts have shared several tips for you to have a schedule of things to do. In addition to having talent in video games, there are a couple of things that you will need to evaluate in the market.
SPORTS | How to become a professional player
Find a competitive game
Keep in mind that not all video games are eSports. That’s why the first thing an aspiring professional gamer should do is find a competitive game. This means that it must have a national and international scene, that the infrastructure and resources are already in place to support professional gaming. League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter Strike are some options that could be considered.
have sports discipline
Although motivation is essential at the beginning and during any hobby or goal, the most important thing is to have discipline because not all of them will be victories. Also, becoming a professional player takes years and requires practice and hard work. It is necessary to learn to deal with defeats, be persistent and constant, because dedicating yourself to video games professionally is like any other sport. In other words, its practice requires a holistic approach that includes exercise, rest and a social life to maintain balance. Keep in mind that social skills are also key because they allow the player to establish a relationship of trust with his team and sponsors.
Seek support from an organization
With the growth of the video game industry, more and more institutions or companies support electronic sports. LG Peru, for example, has been betting on the professionalization of electronic sports for around four years through the sponsorship of professional teams such as Supremacy Gaming and Cataclysm. Professional gamers should look for an organization that will help them get the necessary resources to compete professionally.
Create your community
Once you have experience, you need to start promoting yourself and creating a fan or follower base, a community. Participation in increasingly competitive tournaments is an excellent exposure platform to become known, as well as helping them to obtain a greater gaming experience.
