However, not all of us are given the talent and discipline of becoming a professional player. It takes a lot of time, focus, and strategic skills to master a game, let alone manage your own team. Being a gamer has many hurdles not only personally but also professionally.
Strategy, leadership, and love for the game makes a good professional gaming team. Not everyone is cut out for it, but here are a few basics to help you learn how to create your own esports team:
The Four Important Things
As the founder of Natus Vincere, a successful multi-gaming eSports organization based in Ukraine, Alexander Kohanovskyystressed out the four important things he had when he was starting out with the organization. This includes managerial skills, people who know where to get your players, passion for eSports and a decent capital.
This is certainly a must for anyone who is starting a professional. In creating your own team, you need to be multitask effectively. You need to scout great players, plan tournament schedules, make sure you qualify, and find potential sponsors. The success of the team rests in the leader’s managerial skills as much as his gaming skills.
People to find you your People
It is a definite advantage if you know someone who knows people who still has a low profile but overwhelmingly good in an eSports game. On top of that, you need to be a good judge of character in the process of selecting the members of your new team. Remember that although many gamers out there are skilled, only a few will be teachable enough to learn from you and the rest of the members of your new team. Remember to not only look for brilliant players but also for teachable ones full of untapped potential.
Passion for eSports
This is important if you want your team not just to succeed, but to last. Look for the ones who do what they do not only to get paid, but because they have a passion for it. People with passion will be self-motivated, driven, and committed. Above all, you will need the commitment to become better each time you are out to compete.
Creating your own eSports professional team is no different from placing an investment. You need money to be able to mobilize yourself to get the things that you need. There are a lot of them such as your players’ salary, practice space and transportation expense during competitions.
Starting your new eSports team can be challenging in many ways. The uncertainties will always be there but if you have the necessary tools for it then the chances will be on your side. Simply enjoy it, always be ready, and reap the gains of the amazing team that you would create.
