Who are the Best eSports Players?

Whenever there’s some form of competition going on, you can bet it will draw a crowd. It can be a street fight between two drunk guys, a bunch of gladiators hacking at each other, football, or pro gamers participating in the esports event.

Believe it or not, if you haven’t heard yet (you may have a lot of catching up to do) if you are pretty good at video games then there may be a job waiting for you.

On top of that, you will be doing something that you like most – playing your favourite video game. You can go solo, you can join a professional team, and best of all you also get sponsorships and advertising deals like other professional teams or athletes. 

What is eSports?

Before we go on with the job prospects, professional eSports teams, and the pros themselves, let’s first go over the actual competitive sport. Yes, video gaming has gone through leaps and bounds and considered by millions around the world as a competitive sport.

eSports (as the pros call it) is known by many different names. It’s called professional gaming, electronic sports, competitive video gaming, and a host of other names.

There are online competitions and there are offline competitions – that means, these events reach far and wide on a global scale. Whether it’s on the internet or in an actual Coliseum, every eSporting event draws in a jam-packed crowd.

Back in 2013, the eSport World Championship drew more than 32 million viewers worldwide. They had 27 million the following year. On top of that, statistics show that the viewership of eSports today number to more than 70 million people worldwide.

The Games You Can Participate In

The video gaming world has evolved. Yes, both in the Pokémon sense and in the non-Pokémon sense – and yes there is a world championship Pokémon eSporting event.

Of course, that is not the only game you can play as a professional gamer. The games during these huge competitions include really popular video game titles such as:

eSport Appreciation

Are these competitions really entertaining? You bet they are. However, just like any new sport (digital or the old flesh and bone type) you have to understand the game to appreciate the game.

Do you remember when mixed martial arts were still new? Everyone scoffed and even pro boxers took jabs (well, verbally) at the sport. It took a while before the general public got educated about the sport and learned to appreciate it to its nooks and crannies.

The same is true today when the general public views a match between two professional gamers or two eSport teams locked in battle. They first need to understand the nuances of the game before they can appreciate the skill being displayed by the pros. Truth be told, it’s a lot less violent compared to a lot of sports out there.

Becoming a Professional Gamer

Are you good at video games? Is your mum still yelling at you or your dad lecturing you that there is no future in this? You can actually explain in a really civilised way that there is a bright and lucrative future if you become really good at video games.

If you’ve got a knack for this sort of thing and you feel that you can play video games for life then you test the waters. Note that there are more professional opportunities in this industry than just playing professionally – there are options when a pro gamer retires.

Pick a game genre. You don’t really have to be good at all of them – though you can get noticed if you are good at all of them. There are fighting games, first person shooters, real time strategy games, sports games, racing, multiplayer battle arena games, and a host of others.

Remember that it takes some time before you can master a game. In fact, you need to know the ins and outs when there’s a new game release. For instance, when Call of Duty: Black Ops II was replaced by Call of Duty: Ghosts back in 2013, professional gamers had to master a dozen new multiplayer maps to become competitively proficient during competition.

Stay motivated and keep practising. If there are local events then join in. That experience will give you a feel for the sport and it eventually prepares you for the big league.

You also need to gear up – time for some PC upgrades. Find gaming communities and join the convo. After that, you can find a team and join.

The Good Part: You can actually join in the fun at the next global eSporting event. You can do more than spectating – there are open events where anyone can challenge seeded professional players.

Well, you’re going to have to cough up some cash but it will be the chance of a lifetime. You can get noticed and you may get offered a job as a professional gamer. Another option is to audition

A Quick Look at the Pros

One good thing about being a pro gamer is that you get to pick a really cool handle.
