As is the case in the world of traditional sports such as football or basketball, the eSports demand enormous dedication if we want to compete in the best divisions.
Such dedication and perseverance as a prerequisite for progress is a maxim that electronic sports inherently share with their precursors, lifelong sports. None of the current superstars of football has reached where it is without going through the lower categories before, nor have the great names of the eSports
As in any other competition, the eSports always start from the bottom. Reaching the top will depend on whether we can prove our worth in confronting other players in games where only the best advance. Of course, we can’t start competing in the League Championship Series (LCS), the league of professionals, but let’s be sensible, who would want to start there?
Before we compete in the most critical leagues-and last in them less than two rounds-we, have to compete in smaller tournaments and leagues, often designed for players who are starting in this professional competition.
What tournaments should participate in?
Finding the right Tournament to take the road to triumph is not easy. The number of tournaments that are held when talking about such popular games as LoL or Call of Duty is incalculable. From semi-professional to local competitions, all have a place when they are supported by the immense popularity enjoyed by games like the MOBA de Riot.
The problem is that the rules imposed by the organizers of such a variety of events are, as one might expect, very disparate. And not only concerning the standards within the games themselves, but also the possible restrictions or conditions to be met to be eligible for a place in the tournament.
How many times have we regretted reading about an exciting competition that turns out to be exclusive to members of a given university? For example, no authority or collective governs the functioning of these tournaments, nor is it logical to think that it is viable or necessary. Riot has launched a project on its official website that brings together the multitude of online tournaments held within the EUW server.
The initiative is promising, but the truth is that today it is somewhat green, and it does not appear that it will leave the beta phase shortly, so we will have to wait to see it become the final meeting point at the European level. Fortunately, there is an entity that has managed to create a unified and consistent tournament network to professionalize the world of electronic sports in Spain.
