How Do Esports Teams Train?

Esports is no longer a hobby! The top teams are signing sponsorship deals worth millions, selling insane amounts of merchandise, competing for 7 figure prize pools, and even taking their teams public on the stock exchange. With so much money up for grabs, it is no wonder that esports has gone through professionalization. In this article, we are going to look at how top teams train to level up their skills and ensure they can win the biggest tournaments on the planet! To see the esports team live make sure you head to https://gg.bet/en/esports where you stream and bet on over 15 different esports!

How Many Hours Do Esports Teams Practice Each Day?

Esports teams will often practice for 6 to 8 hours per day, 6 days a week. This is just official team practice and many players will continue to hone their skills in their free time. Some of the most dedicated esports pros will play up to 12 hours a day!

With so much daily game time, it is no wonder that burnout is such a massive thing in esports. Incredibly the average pro esports career lasts just 4 years. Only players who are truly passionate about gaming can commit to playing 8 hours a day for years without wanting to tear their hair out!

What Do Esports Teams’ Practices Look Like?

The majority of an esports pro team’s training revolves around scrimmaging. Scrimmaging involves playing matches against other pro teams. They will often create certain scenarios and work on specific skills and strategies.

During scrimmaging sessions, analysts study the game footage and make a detailed assessment of what is and isn’t working. Once the scrimmage session is over, players will meet with analysts and review footage, and come up with new strategies and ways a player can improve. During the next scrimmaging session, players are expected to implement the advice given to them by the team analysts.

Once official team practice is over, players will often continue playing ranked matches by themselves. Some players are so dedicated and virtually live in the game, playing 14 hours a day and barely sleeping.

In recent years pro teams have been adding other forms of training to players’ routines rather than just endless scrimmaging. Nowadays, players work with physical trainers in the gym and sports therapists and spend significant time working on their reaction speed, concentration, and problem-solving skills via the latest scientific brain games.

Do Esports Players Live Together?

An interesting fact about esports pro teams is that many of them have housing located at the training facility. Many of the pros will live on-site, which builds a strong team bond and ensures players don’t miss practices and fully commit to the pro gamer lifestyle. Some pro teams have taken it to the extreme by having private chefs, massage therapists, and even psychologists all on-site ready to meet the needs of pros.

Final Thoughts

Many people dream of becoming esports pros, but the reality is playing for a minimum of 8 hours a day, 6 days a week, is not for everyone! It takes an incredible amount of dedication to stick to a pro esports training routine, and these athletes deserve as much respect as footballers, basketballers, and other traditional sports pros.
