There are lots of articles on how to become a professional e Sports gamer, but what are some of the techniques pro gamers use to stay at the top of their game? Today I’m going to be going through a few strategies that pro gamers use to keep one step ahead of their opponents. When combining these skills together you too can become an unstoppable force on the e Sports battlefield!  

ConsistencyBe consistent 

The more you practice the better you will get, but working on becoming consistent is a completely different kettle of fish. It requires the player to be mindful of mistakes and learn from them. You will need to learn to adapt and change your game so you can perform good things more easily. You can be a very talented gamer but if you’re not consistent you won’t win the big trophies. You need to be able to be confident enough to win over and over. You need to have confidence in your ability and expect to win. It’s important to realize what you’re doing right and try and repeat it. Sounds simple when it’s actually an incredibly difficult skill to master.

StrategyResearch strategy 

There are heaps of sites out there that allow you to research game strategies. The trick is only perusing strategies that you are going to use and making sure you use them. There is no point filling your head with a hundred strategies and trying to use them all. Work out where your game needs improvement and then research strategies which improve those areas of your game. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes and be wrong, because that means you have found a way to improve. It’s always better to remain a student of the game, so when you eventually master it, there is still room for improvement.

Keep coolKeep a cool head

Sounds simple right? Keeping a cool head is crucial for being a successful professional gamer. If you’re going to play at the top level, you need to be able to make split second decisions and reason on the fly. Confidence is a key component to being able to hold it together. You need to have confidence in your own ability and that of your team. Keeping a clear mind also helps and meditation between games is also a good idea. Players are able to keep a cool head because they have practiced and “seen it all before”. So be prepared to put in the hard yards if you truly want to master this skill. It’s best to have a “been there, done that” kind of confident attitude, so nothing can surprise you.

stay aheadStay one step ahead 

Work out your opponents’ tendencies and form expectations based on evidence they provide you. Most of your decisions are going to come down to the probability of whether or not your opponent will be able to counter your move. Staying one step ahead is a game of trial and error, until you find the right style which correctly counters your opponent. Once this is determined you can revert back to that style whenever you play them, or similar opponents. In this way, recognizing your opponents style is just as key as mastering your own.

think out of the boxThink outside the box

You need to be able to mix it up and stay fresh. Keep trying new things when your opponent gives you room, then revert back to reliable and tested methods when your opponent is closing in or putting you under pressure. It’s not enough to be doing the same things all the time because eventually your opponent will catch on and you will be out of moves. So keep moving and trying new things when the opportunity presents itself, you should be constantly surprising your enemies with how much you are willing to change and play differently against them in the same kinds of situations. This will make sure they are always off guard, and never knowing what is coming next is a great way to get inside the head   of your enemy and rattle them.

fix your mistakesFix your mistakes 

Some players just refuse to fix their mistakes and it’s a huge blunder. They say to themselves “that’s just the way I play” and never actually do anything about it. You always have the power to change the way you play. If it’s not working, there is usually a reason for it. It helps to get your friends to spectate you and see what you’re doing wrong or how you can improve. It is a form of arrogance that influences players not to change their ways and continue to lose. Let go of your ego if you want to master the game.

separate your skillsSeparate your skills 

Think about what you do right, separate your skills and work on them individually. This is a good way to improve what you are already good at, helping you to become consistent and iron out the chinks. It’s better to have one really good skill in a game rather than 3 moderate skills that are only sometimes useful. It takes a lot of personal reflection to understand what you are good at and what needs work so this one might require some quiet time away from the game. It’s also good to separate your skills so you can call upon them more easily when you need them.


You can never have too many friends in the gaming industry. These people will open your mind and expand your horizons. You should always be looking for players who are better than you are and trying to play with them, learning from their skill. You can read as much as you like online but there is no comparison to playing with players that are better than you, because they will force you to make the mistakes you need to fix. It’s that simple.

attempt the impossibleAttempt the impossible 

Reach for the stars and believe you can get there. Put in the work and anything is possible. Following these steps are just part of the way and everyone’s journey will be different. What’s impossible for me might be plain simple for you. Everyone has a destiny and this is also expressed in gaming and how far you can go. You must first attempt the impossible before that can be your reality. Believe in yourself and not only will you improve but you will also start to turn heads and become recognized as being a leader. You want to be someone who isn’t afraid of big challenges and making a difference. Master that and there is no telling how far you can go.

Thanks for reading my article, best of luck and happy gaming!
