Gaming continues to grow in popularity, especially with almost everyone being stuck indoors. Pro gaming has its own world, with tournaments paying six-figure salaries when it’s done right. Didn’t think gaming was such a lucrative sport? Think again. Pro gaming is not for the weak at heart – it takes time and dedication to rise to the challenge. Things also get very dirty the higher a user goes. That’s why having a VPN to mask location and provide anonymity is key. It’s also important to know what to do when playing, especially when things go a little crazy. These tips should help.

Read more below:

  • Jump into the action

It’s always best to practice whenever you can no matter what game you’re playing. Pro gamers are not only consistent, but they play ALL THE TIME. They consider this a job (and some of them get paid to play, too) that they work to advance in their skill level. It’s always important to play with others who are better than you. When moving up in skill, the challenger should be someone that’s above the user.

  • Keep up daily activities

Even when attempting to become a pro gamer, having a back-up plan is important. Many people have aspirations, but remaining in their current job or staying in school. While some professional gamers have been very successful in supporting themselves in tournaments or other competitions, the key is having a main source of income while getting better at the craft.

  • Study

Being successful in any field means doing the work. Making an effort to study others who have excelled is great. There are many videos of gamers that can be studied to learn the tactics and tricks they use. These professional gamers have done this for years and good information can be taken from watching them, then practicing what was learned.

  • Doing the work

Playing the game means putting in the hours needed to get it done. That means working on specific things. Making a plan to perfect each component one by one. This should happen one by one over time. The goal is to be able to overcome each opponent by attacking their weaknesses.

  • Share

Users can’t do this alone. It’s important to become part of a gaming community where people share ideas, techniques and help one another in becoming better. There are many places that have forums to discuss new games, mastering certain things and perfecting strategy. Doing this in addition to playing with friends or colleagues can help hone the craft while building a positive reputation.

  • Keep doing the work

Yes, we’ve already said it once but have to say it again. No one gets better without doing the work. Did you know top pro gamers often live together and play against each other for hours every single day? While it sounds a bit much, these people have dedicated themselves to the art of gaming and want to get everything they can out of it. For them, it’s an investment that will have huge rewards over time. That’s a mindset a newbie must adopt to be successful.

  • Check your Temper

When first starting out, a user may consider themselves to be a good player – until they start playing against the pros. A loss should be expected, as it teaches lessons on where the focus should be and new things to implement. Losing helps become a better player, but it can be frustrating at times because gamers are well known for talking a lot of trash. This is not an area for the weak, and good gamers have thick skin and nerves of steel.

  • Balance it out

While practicing is key, a player’s life needs balance for everything to make sense. Being online all the time isn’t healthy – even if it is for work. There should be a schedule to follow that allows the user to interact with others outside of the gaming world. Taking a walk outside and doing other activities will add perspective.

  • Figure it out

Someone could be the best player among friends and want to have a career as a professional gamer but it may not be in the cards. This is a strenuous, stressful career choice that requires mental and physical agility to excel and succeed. Top players have been doing it for years, and have reprogrammed their bodies to adapt, as well as their minds. Just because someone is good at something doesn’t mean they are cut out to be the very best.

  • Make the choice

Determination will take someone far – it’s truly a mindset that must be reprogrammed and reshaped over time. While becoming a pro gamer may be difficult, it’s not unheard of for someone new to come for the throne. In fact, it happens all the time. The player must know what they want and dedicate themselves to their craft. This makes the difference now and in the future.

Most of the pro gamers all over the world use VPNs to ensure their games are uninterrupted. They also use VPNs to play new games from different countries and play against top players in those areas. Hackers love challenging pro gamers in an attempt to get their information from the internet. There have been instances where pro gamers have had intruders at their addresses due to someone hacking their personal information from a game server and being malicious.

The key to getting the right VPN is to look for certain things: are they recording what’s being done? Is there a kill switch? Can you hop from server to server? How fast does it stream? All these answers make a difference in the gaming world.

It’s difficult to consider the implications, but as a professional gamer, the stakes are always high – in reputation, money, and safety. Is it a consideration most should have? Absolutely. The possibility of playing around the country from home is tempting and fun. The goal is keeping the eye on the prize by using these tips to get started as a newbie in a new career that has its crazy moments but may end up being one of the most lucrative opportunities on the planet. Who doesn’t want to say they work from home playing games? Exactly.

The SOFTSWISS Casino Platform is expanding its functionality by adding new features and updates, which contribute to player acquisition and retention. Bonus management via API is now available to our clients. The tool makes bonus management even more flexible and allows operators to add a new level of personalisation to bonuses for each player. Moreover, the Bonus API  by the SOFTSWISS Casino Platform enables clients to use the plethora of parameters and settings to craft unique bonuses.

Via API, SOFTSWISS clients can run their own settings for a desirable bonus, and the system offers the appropriate bonus to a user with the most relevant gaming behaviour. The interface will feature player profile parameters to set up bonus rules. This will enrich the player experience, make the brand’s bonus policy more productive and reduce the waiting time for the bonus implementation. 

This addition brings a player-centric approach, flexibility and process customisation to the front. The Bonus API satisfies clients’ requests and helps them create improved player bonuses. This is another step towards a smart casino management model for the SOFTSWISS Casino Platform team and their clients.

This marks the content creation tech specialists’ first brand campaign focused upon the amplification of creativity, an area which Quadrant and its founder Lando Norris are more than equipped to assist with.

As Quadrant’s Official Streaming Equipment Partner, Elgato has unlocked the combined audience of the channel’s prestigious talent team – Lando Norris, FNG, Aarava, SuperGT, RiaBish, Fifakill and Max Fewtrell – enabling them to reach ever increasing levels of viewership.

Together, the two organisations are set to harness a long-term partnership to deliver, and through ‘Create Greatness’ encourage, top quality content to global audiences on premium streaming hardware.

Jamie MacLaurin, Chief Sporting Officer at Quadrant, said: “We’re very excited to announce the renewal of our partnership with Elgato. This partnership has elevated the quality of our content and live streams both on the Quadrant channel and our creators’ individual channels through continued support and supply of their top-of-the-line equipment. Elgato have been a tremendous partner and a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to building on the foundations we have already built together.”

From all the high-quality content they’ve created to being central in one of the largest campaigns we’ve ever put together, we couldn’t be happier with how the partnership has gone so far. With ideas and plans already in the works, it’s an exciting journey that we are thrilled to be continuing.”
