League Of Legends Esport: Its History, How To Become A Pro Player In This Game And Possible Future

It is the most played PC video game in the world right now, with over 100 million monthly players. In fact, it’s so popular among that it has taken over other MOBA games such as Dota 2 in terms of daily active players. The League of Legends Esport professional scene has also exploded, and it is now a multi-million dollar industry.

Why is League of Legends Esport so Special?

What makes League of Legends so special is the fact that it has successfully combined sports with eSports. Riot Games, which is the company behind LoL, organized the first-ever LoL World Championship in 2011 with a prize pool of $100,000. Four years later, its prize pool was more than $2,000,000. The 2014 League of Legends World Championship is the most watched eSports event in history, with over 32 million unique viewers and a peak concurrent viewership of 14,7 million viewers.

How To Become A Pro League Of Legends Esport Player?

Choosing your role in LoL before you even start playing the game is essential. Unlike other MOBAs, League of Legends Esport only has five positions: top, jungle, mid, bottom and support. Top plays on one of the two top lanes, jungle plays in between both of those lanes and also provides help to whoever needs it on those lanes by killing neutrals or ganking (a play that surprises an enemy). Mid plays on the middle lane, the bottom is responsible for both of the bottom lanes, and support helps out their bottom lane.

Since LoL has a very steep learning curve due to its complex game mechanics (100+ champions with unique abilities, masteries, rune pages etc.), it’s best to start with something you’re good at. The game mechanics might confuse you if you jump onto mid or bottom lane right from the start, especially if you don’t know much about last hitting minions for gold and experience, when to go back to base to buy items and when/how to help your teammates in ways other than killing minions.

How to become successful League of Legends Esport?

In order to be successful in LoL, you need to be versatile. Yes, even support players need to know how to play other roles besides support in order to help their team and carry games when needed. That’s the whole point of having a team game; one person cannot win the match by himself (unless he is named Faker).

As everything takes time and practice to learn the game mechanics, get better at last hitting minions or landing skillshots properly. More importantly, you need to have good map awareness and team play if you wish to succeed in this beautiful game.

 

If you’re dedicated enough to League of Legends Esport and want to make it big, be prepared for a lot of hours spent playing the game. LoL is more than just a game; it’s a lifestyle. Due to the nature of this MOBA, you will encounter raging teammates and toxic people who will flame you for your performance every single day. This means that besides a strong desire to play competitive video games as a career, you need thick skin and nerves of steel if you wish to be a pro-League of Legends player.

Talking about the League of Legends Esport Age Requirement:-

If that’s not enough, let’s talk about the age requirement. Although you must be atleast older than 16 years to play in most League of Legend Esport tournaments and leagues around the world (unless you’re playing for a team from the CIS region). If you wish to pursue this as a career, be prepared to wait at least 3-4 years before you get enough experience and skills to compete in most tournaments.

Another important thing to keep in mind is the fact that most teams and organizations expect their players not only to play but also to stream on Twitch or create content such as YouTube videos when they’re not scrimming (practising with other teams). It’s a lot of responsibility, and you must be prepared to be under a lot of stress while playing in the LCS or on teams.

This is why it’s so important to start early and gain some experience, even if you suck at first. That way, later on, when everything starts getting serious, you will have a much better understanding of the game and will be able to make better decisions in high-pressure situations.

To conclude this whole post, I want to mention that in order to become a pro LoL player, you need much more than just skills. Luck is also another important factor when it comes to making it big in eSports because opportunities don’t come knocking too often. If you didn’t follow any of the steps I outlined above, don’t get too disappointed if you never make it to a pro team or LCS. You can still play in amateur leagues or tournaments and have fun while enjoying this beautiful game we all love called League of Legends Esport.
