When it comes to gaming, there are a couple of things you need to know. First of all, there are three different types of gamers.
There are casual gamers who occasionally like to play a game, whether it’s a single-player game or a multiplayer game, it doesn’t matter.
They like to play it from time to time simply to spend some quality time enjoying themselves, and they don’t worry much about winning or losing.
Hardcore gamers who spend many hours playing video games each day and mostly in a competitive sense, and then there are pro gamers who play games for a living.
In terms of hours, pro gamers probably spend a bit more time playing than hardcore gamers, but that’s not the primary factor which differs these two categories.
If you ever had a wish to become a pro gamer, but found yourself stuck without being able to progress no matter how much you play, there are a couple of things you need to know.
First of all, your attitude is pulling you down. Most hardcore gamers are very easily irritated and they tend to ”flame” their teammates. This behavior is typically seen in most League of Legends matches, and it is the determining factor when it comes to progress.
If you want to improve your game-play, you have to take a step back, question your game and think about what YOU could do to benefit the team and win the game.
It doesn’t matter how much your teammates suck; it matters how you put things into perspective. There are professional boosters who will take your account and win almost single-handedly in the same teams you were playing, and weren’t able to prevail.
This just means that you are not at the top of your game and if you want to progress you have to improve yourself first.
Secondly, practice does make perfect, but not everything is about spamming matches and hoping to improve. If you repeat the same mistakes in each game, you will stay at the same skill level.
Try to search online how to become a better gamer, look at guides, youtube clips, watch professionals play and try to devise a new tactic. Try new things and always try to outsmart your opponent by devising an overwhelming strategy that can’t be countered if it hadn’t been seen already.
Third, and the most important thing, stay calm. If you get mad and start rushing into your opponents without any previous thought, you will get stomped. Your character does not get stronger the madder you are.
Furthermore, if you annoy your teammates, they will stop helping you, the team will fall apart, and they will pick you off, one by one, until you become utterly defenseless.
The problem with pro gaming, just like with anything else in the world, is even if you do follow all the rules above, you still might not make it as a pro because it requires immense talent.
It’s an awesome thing to be a professional gamer, but if everyone could do it, it wouldn’t be so special. Nonetheless, don’t let this bring you down, maybe you do have the potential to make it, but your talent is simply buried by the anger you feel once you start losing.
Try to follow these few steps and see where it takes you, I guarantee you will become much better.
