Seriousness in the Game
To make a career in counter Strike and become a top player and earn a lot of money you have to be very dedicated to the game. You have to forget all the fun, luxuries, other hobbies, etc and give as much as time possible to the game. Maintaining a relationship and doing a side job or business is also very difficult. The more you play the more skilled you will be and the more experienced you will be. Your aim will improve and you will be able to make more strategies and better strategies. You should know that it is not a one man’s game but a team’s game so the more you play with your team the more you will understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses and will be able to cover up each other during the tournament.
An Everyday Practice Session
As it is commonly said, ‘Practice makes a man perfect’. The players should find a common time and practice the game every day. It should be taken seriously as a job, as the professionals say that CS should be practiced for about 6 to 7 hours a day which is practically a job time. Some teams even practice for 10 hours while getting ready for the big tournaments like DreamHack Winter, ESL Katowice, etc. Hence, the more time they offer to the game the better they become.
Gelling Well with Each Other in the Team in and off the Game
It is very important to make good team chemistry because CS is a team game and so all the team members should gel well in and off the game. If the team players do not like each other even the game will get the effect. The chemistry builds up if the team spends more time with each other in and off the game. There may be ego problems or two people who want to take up a single role for example of a rifler. In such cases, a strong team leader is required who will manage such situations and identify talents as well.
Learning of Skills and Tactics
It is very important to learn the tactics and skills to win this game. The more you play the more your skills will get home. One of the best ways to do so is by practicing with a better team. The more you practice with them the more you will learn from them. It will make you and your team much better.
