Is gaming a great passion in…

Playing games is one of the most popular hobbies in the world. But with enough passion and will, any hobby can be turned into a professional profession.

Many of us grew up playing games. Some of us got started with the SNES console by rebooting classics like Donkey Kong and Super Mario Kart. Still others, I started on the NES or Nintendo 64, where I was introduced to the first shooting games (Duke Nukem, Goldeneye 007 (). Even older people discovered the line of games on the Atari 2600. No matter what device you started playing games on or how many games you play Played by it, all players have an incomprehensible passion for virtual worlds where digital connections and friendships are formed, both with other players from the real world as well as with the characters with whom we explore rich digital worlds.

There are quite a few of you who have nurtured this passion from childhood into adulthood itself. You have invested tens of thousands of hours, played hundreds of games, and discovered countless secrets and an infinite number of breathtaking moments. Have you ever wondered if you will be able to transfer all this knowledge to the professional stages?

Thirty years ago, at the beginning of gaming, it would have been difficult to advise anyone to start a professional gaming journey. Esports events have been very rare, especially on the European scene. Today, the story is completely different. We can thank the esports producers, esports tournament organizers, sponsors who recognized the potential in the new esports industry, and of course the players who encouraged the development of the esports industry, including you.

This is now developing rapidly in Slovenia as well.
