Tips for becoming a pro player

Let’s say at the beginning that it’s not one thing that makes a player become a professional. There are various factors and decisions you need to take into account. We can skip talking about doing what you love because that goes without saying. You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t love gaming, right?

Which game to choose?

Since we know you’re passionate about gaming, we can go on to the next important step which is choosing the game. This can be hard looking at all these available esports titles. For a newbie, it can be tough to select the game in which they want to climb and become the best. You can go with a safe choice and pick a successful game with a huge esports scene such as League of Legends, VALORANT, or CS2. However, there you can encounter problems as it is harder to make it to the top at an already established scene. Or you can pick a new and challenging, while also popular game. There you can find a way to make it your own and attract sponsors and community in your own way. Another thing to think about is if you want to go solo or with a team.

New players should also take their time and get good at their games. Practice is important and having a beast PC will also help you achieve your choice. Even though some people think you can climb only on your talent, good gear means a world of difference.

Community involvement

Getting recognized is something that should be mentioned as well. Climbing the ladder and reaching a high rank in your game will increase your chances of getting recognized, as it will if you’re a part of a community and active on social media, YouTube, and/or Twitch. Being involved in the gaming community, and being active on Discord channels, Steam and Reddit groups will also help you find a team more easily. Then you can start competing, build your relationships in the community, and try to find sponsors and a pro organization where you can strive. Easier said than done, I know.
