Are you looking to get into 'esports'? The world of competitive video gaming is a fast-growing international phenomenon with millions of fans, evolving from a niche hobby into a gigantic billion-dollar industry:
Pick A Game & Start Spectating
First pick a game and start spectating the esport to get an idea of the game and how it works. Plus you could even start with esports betting to add to the excitement.
"Counter-Strike: Global Offensive"' is a hugely popular esports game right now, and CSGO betting is an ideal way to get started and have some fun.
Practice & Research
Practice makes perfect so put in the hours to perfect your skills, while learning how to be competitive.
Once you succeed and build confidence, look to attend an esports summer camp to hone your skills and get prepared for competing at higher levels.
Join A Team & Gaming League
If you are playing a team game, then you will need to either form or join a team, practicing regularly much like a typical sports team. Find a gaming league that offers seasonal competition and regular games culminating in a tournament for cash prizes and other benefits.
Online & LAN Tournaments
There are also online tournaments to compete in to develop skills and your reputation, with a bonus of cash prizes.
Before achieving this higher level, it is worth attending tournaments to soak up the atmosphere, see top players in action and meet up with fellow gamers.
Build Your Presence
The other side of competitive gaming is building your online presence and reputation. You can do this by networking, creating content and staying active on social media while engaging with both fans and followers.
Esports can be great fun even at an amateur level and with the industry growing by leaps and bounds, now is a great time to get started...
