Want to make ESPORTS a career?
We as gamers wonder with this age-old question of what it takes to be the “Guy” of our franchise that we wish to be the best at. We even look at the current World Champion individuals or teams that we believe we can beat in our sleep and wonder how they win these prize pools. This may seem straight forward on how to be an E-Sports professional, but is it really? I am here to give you my blunt opinion on what it takes to really be the “Guy” of your E-Sports career that you may wish to pursue.
Be the BEST?
Being the world’s best at a game such as SonicFox at every fighting game imaginable or F2tekkz in Fifa who have literally wrote their names into legendary status of gaming through pure talent alone unfortunately. Let’s say you don’t have that but want to be the best, so how do you do that? Well there is a thing called character, just ask Ninja and he will tell you how Twitch made him a ridiculous amount of money by being a decent Fortnite player but had the character to back it up. Listen I am not discounting the fact that Ninja is an incredible player but he is very much beatable in a game that relies on a vantage point that requires the skill to pull it off for the “W”.
What I am getting at is the character you portray can be an incredible stepping stone to what you want to achieve, let’s take another in SonicFox. He was an individual who not only embraced his sexuality but created a movement of what it means to be equal in a gaming movement to the point of wearing what would be deemed as a silly costume to signify his brilliance. Dare to be different even if you are not entirely good at a game, remember you will lose and you will learn from that loss. Lose the battle but win the war!

Practice does indeed make perfect but you are human so show the other gamers that you are as well, there is nothing wrong with that.
