How playing video games as a career can be really good as a life choice.
Playing video games has always had a controversy over the benefits or is it harming to a player. Playing video games can actually help one get really good at hand eye coordination. Everyone dreams of doing something that we love to do as a career so why not playing video games. real people are playing video games that right now and are actually making a lot of money because it shows that if a person really likes to do something than you can do it and get paid for it. Some video games are actually considered a sport, but not any sport an esports.
So basically it is a video game being played but with other people who are really good at it competing for money. For example, “Seven-figure salaries, sold-out stadiums this shows that even regular people can get crowds of people to watch them compete for a medal for them playing the game its important as the champions league is important for any football fan. This shows that if a few players can get crowds this big that are compared to the super bowl why not get in now so you can be one of the greats in the future. The benefits of doing this now is that one day you too can be making 7 figures. Esports is a new type of game that everybody can play because it can be fun and competitive at the same time. “Seven-figure salaries, sold-out stadiums: Is pro video gaming a sport?” it’s definitely a sport of the future and that’s why it is important to get in when its new to get the lead at it. Esports shows that even regular people can get crowds of people to watch them compete for a medal for them playing a game that is as important as the Champions league is important for any football fan. This also shows that if a few players can get crowds this big now, people can be one of the greats of the future. the benefits of doing video games now is that one day can be making 7 figures. Esports is a new type of game that everyone can play because it can fun and competitive at the same time. Newzoo as the "biggest thing to hit (the tech) industry since the launch of the iPhone in 2007."In South Korea, stadiums once used to host football matches at the 2002 FIFA World Cup are now frequently packed to capacity with eSports fans, looking on as a new generation of heroes wields keyboard and mouse.) now a days most kids have some type of computer they can use to play and master their skills in their current favorite game and try to compete. Since Esports is a new thing it will continue to grow one day that it can rival big sports like soccer since more kids and teens have access to the internet.
However, entrepreneurs and gamers are not the only ones shouting from the rooftops about this multimillion-dollar industry. “Shout casters" -- ESports commentators -- "add that special touch to it," just as they do in traditional sports broadcasting, according to Shaun Apollo Clark. Shaun Apollo Clark routinely studies the players -- "not just the way they play the game but the way they live" -- to ensure eSports is a "complete" spectator sport. Stadiums packed with partisan fans and gaming stars are now cropping up in England, Poland and Germany. “It’s the same as if you go to a football match and you're jumping up and down," Clark says. "You enjoy the moment with people you don't even know. It stays with you. “Ten years ago I was playing in front of an audience of five people as a pro player. The next 10 years in eSports? I would say that's the next 100 years in real sports.") this would happen due to in the future more and more people will catch onto this. Since more and more people are getting interested on what esports really is, it will one day rival even the great football that is the most beloved sport in the world.
Now with any sport you can get injured at the game and people will cheat at the game too just like in baseball or football or American football.” (“Seven-figure salaries”).Just as in conventional sport, because people can get injured while moving their hands and if you mess up your hand your basically done. Fully-fledged stats are not yet available, but according to Newzoo, gaming injuries are "a gradually growing problem, and something that the teams are trying to combat by hiring relevant staff as well as with education.” Also with so much money at stake, there have also been match-fixing and doping scandals in recent years. An independent regulatory board, WESA, has consequently been established. WESA claims it will "further professionalize eSports by introducing elements of player representation, standardized regulations, and revenue sharing for teams. Now the thing is that when money gets involve things change." Since there is money at stake people will sometimes find a way to make a quick buck. Now with any sport people at esports will retire at certain ages depending in the game they play.
For “Pro gamers story: Get big, burn out, retire young “Dave Walsh began playing video games professionally in 2004, he crunched the numbers and calculated what he could realistically make on the competition circuit. He showed the math to his parents, and they gave him their blessing to leave a summer job at the post office. At his first tournament that summer, Walsh won $5,000, slightly more than he would have made all season at the post office. Two years later, he signed a three-year contract with tournament operator MLG—Major League Gaming—worth $250,000. Six years after that, he had retired from pro gaming.) This shows that one can get paid quite a lot from the sport and then retire to go do other things. Another story from the article, “Pro gamers story: Get big, burn out, retire young,” Last year, tournaments awarded more than $15 million around the world, up from just over a $1 million a decade ago, according toesportsearnings.com. Still, while 27 million people play "League of Legends" each day, just 40 professionals earn salaried positions in the North American League. since the prize will keep going higher every year one can start making more money every year as they pursue the career. Now I will show you how to improve at the game you play every day” How to Become a Pro Gamer – 8 Tips from The Pros” (Easy to understand, that is. Playing for a living isn’t all fun and games. It takes time, skill and determination to win in today’s competitive circuits. If you’re up for the challenge, here’s what you need to do: Pick your game. With a service like Xbox Live, you can practice and compete around the clock both with and against very skilled players. It’s not about randomly finding people to play against. A player has to find a game you’re good at and become exceptional at it. Once you find that game, build your reputation as both a skilled single player and a team player. Stay motivated.
Winning and money are big motivators for pro gamers; so are family and passion. Pro gamer Marcus “ShoNuff2025” Davis has been practicing the latest Call of Duty game, Advanced Warfare. When asked why he wanted to go pro, Davis said, “First, I want to be the best so my Dad doesn’t think I’m asking for all these games and PC upgrades for nothing. Then I want to have fun doing what I already love doing. “Practice. Study the best tactics, watch a ton of gameplay and learn how to lose. Even when you lose, you’re practicing, and practice really makes perfect, another player Tyler “Teepee” Polchow, who was part of the team complexity (now Evil Geniuses), which won the Call of Duty World Championship in 2014.Polchow“the championship was the pinnacle of my professional gaming career,” Polchow said. To get there, Polchow practiced with his team eight-plus hours a day, live-streamed the games and created other content.’ Polchow included, “We were up against the best and had to prove we were better. The grand finals against Team EnvyUs was a quick 3-0 sweep for us, and it was in the last minutes of the third map where we secured the victory,” He said. “A $100,000 check and the prestige of being a world champion is what all pro gamers strive for, and having that become a reality was one of the most gratifying and relieving feelings.”) Now with hard work you put into something that’s the only way see if pays off and will in the for most things.
Now things in America are changing since a lot of people are being entertain by just seeing how their favorite people are doping in the game. In the article, “Here's why pro gaming is exploding in popularity,” “Last year, 27 million people watched the League of Legends world championships on the live-streaming site Twitch and ESPN3. That’s more viewers than the 23.5 million who watched Game 7 of the World Series and the 18 million who tuned into the NBA Finals.” Since more people are watching these games than NBA its clearly shows that it is one of the popular sports. The way to get better at any sport requires one to practice just like practicing a clarinet everyday will get you better at it and hard work obviously pays off in the long run. Yet another example, in the article, “Here's why pro gaming is exploding in popularity,” “People are playing video games more because there's a low barrier to entry. “All you need is a computer, the game, the internet. With a sport, you need gear, equipment, a field or court to play on, and transportation. Video games — you sit in your room,” This is very much true because when I was little I was always found of games and found out that when I played it more I got better at it.
The pro gamer life can make you famous in different places, in the article, “Pro gamer describes the difference between playing in the US and Korea — the mecca of video games it states,” The difference between pro-gaming culture in the US and Korea can be startling, even though players in both countries earn similar incomes (estimated around $80,000 to $100,000)” this is because they do this for a living rather than hobby. Koreans treat their pro gamers like superstars, while US pro gamers have dedicated, but niche followings. This difference in status became apparent to 24-year-old professional League of Legends player Christian “IWDominate” Rivera, when he traveled to compete in South Korea back in 2012. At the time, Rivera had primarily competed in the US, which was still forming a cohesive League of Legends pro league. “At that point, I was more famous in Korea than the US,” Rivera said. “My doctor [in Korea] recognized me. People in the airport recognized me. At restaurants, people recognized me. In the US, no one ever recognized me.” Even three years later, Rivera says, he's still more famous in Korea than in the US. If anyone walks around with him in his Santa Monica neighborhood, it's highly unlikely anyone will recognize him even though the League of Legends headquarters is only a few miles away. When Rivera strolls around Seoul, on the other hand, many people recognize him — and not just those in the expected 16- to 30-year-old male gaming demographic.) this shows you that in Korea you can be famous there but not the usa but you take what you get am I right.” Pro gamer describes the difference between playing in the US and Korea — the mecca of video games” (One explanation for this difference in status is that pro gaming has had a longer time to make its mark on Korea than it has in the US. Since the early 2000s, Koreans have had an established network of "gaming houses" — dedicated training facilities where players live and practice. Their games are broadcast onto the TVs of everyday Koreans, many of whom have favorite players.
The sport is so popular that many Korean companies view pro-gaming matches as a big opportunity to advertise. Americans, on the other hand, are just getting used to the idea of watching pro gaming through features in publications like ESPN and Vice and broadcasts on the popular gaming website Twitch. While players in the US do live in Korea-style gaming houses, they are a relatively new phenomenon. The idea of playing video games for a living in the US is also relatively new. Even just a few years ago, most American pro players only competed part-time, as there was not enough salary or sponsorship money to fully support players.) In conclusion, esports is clearly one of the most competitive sport, if not the most competitive out there.
