Re-igniting an Esports Flame

Sat 4th Jul 2020 - 10:37am General Gaming

For some players, who aren’t exactly getting any younger, who yes, might have seen their glory days, but still have a twinkle in their eye. This article is for you. The consummate student of the game though, despite ones years does not blame or nurture any regrets about gaming, but would still dedicate more of ones time to gaming, if only you could find that spark, well, let me spark it up for you, like an old esports cigar, because today we are going to be discussing re-igniting an old esports flame and testing ones self-up against former glory. What will be discovered may surprise you as there have been many twists and turns along the way and nothing is as it seems in esports.

Reconnecting with old friends

A good way to get back into the esports scene after some time off is to reconnect with old friends and play games with familiar faces. This will bring back a few memories so try and stay strong. Your going to need your wits about you if you are going to succeed and become a champion once more! You must find strength in others whilst creating new bonds if you are to gather the team mates you need to rise to the top again. Even if when you reached the top it was only in your dreams!

Try and play more

It’s going to be hard at first, but you’re going to need to play more, at least 2-3 hours per day at first, when you’re getting back into the swing of things and finding your feet again in the esports scene. You’ll find you are not as good as you were before, though you will be confident that you can rise to even higher heights, above what you thought possible. Your going to make achievements in esports and you are not going to let your age or what anyone says about you get in the way! In fact, you’re going to us it as a strength to make you harder, meaner, tougher and a total winner, way more than before! Way more than ever!

Focus on strategy

So, you don’t have your patented reflexes and keen eyesight any more. That’s not going to stop you from winning because your smart like a fox and eager to outclass your opponent using will power and intellect. Read up on your games. Read hard. Read good. Get your glasses out and spend hours pondering over strategy. This will help your game sense out and your IQ will reach 9000 and your enemy will simply resign.

Aim low

Enter into some tournaments, and have confidence that you can win, but don’t be disappointed when you are faced with a journey not a Cinderella story when you make your esports come back. If you make it anywhere near the top again you will have done super well. Try to remember that it’s all about the experience. Build on what makes an older version of you better and more successful at the games instead of what made you so good before you got all old and wrinkly.

Become the leader

There was a time to be that all star kids who took all the frags and blazed up the scoreboard, there will be a time for a more thoughtful and considerate player in the future. A player who is able to out manoeuvrer his opponents through strategy and teamwork. Who uses his intellect to out smart and defeat even the toughest enemies from having found peace with your inner esports child and moved on to bigger and brighter days that can see great success for you if you peruse your esports dream, no matter how old you are or what game you play.

Peace and happy gaming!
