Mastery in gaming Part 2: Going professional

The story is too old to be commented.

I think gaming on a professional level requires so much dedication and discipline, and I have tremendous respect for players that succeed in eSports.

I think something that you've not included in the interview, but that should maybe be talked abt, is having a professional attitude and the appropriate behavior. This is something cyber athletes seem to forget

Quite right, just like any other sport or in fact, any profession, its all package. You not only have to have the skills, but you need the right attitude.

I think that would be a problem with younger players. Older, more experienced cyber athletes tend to keep themselves professional wherever possible. That's mostly due to them knowing that they're their own brand.
