Our teams have the same problem as any other esports team. We want to be the best, and we are willing to do whatever it takes to be the best. We practice for hours on end, gaining enough experience to put our names on the leaderboards as the best players. Even though playing all day long seems like an easy task, it’s not really.
Our practices are usually in a group setting. It takes 8 to 9 hours a day, including weekends. All in all, the entire training process takes more than 50 hours a week. In addition, many players continue to practice games outside of school hours on their initiative.
The practice day starts at 10 a.m. with the usual warm-up. This involves several games between team members to get into the right rhythm. Then we proceed to team games.
After several hours of team battles during rest time, our team members discuss the entire process, analyzing mistakes made and successful moments. Based on this, players develop new strategies.
Another important aspect of our training sessions is analyzing the actions of our opponents. This is how we identify the weaknesses and strengths of our opponents.
Two to three times a week, we organize games with as close a tournament setting as possible. That is, we create conditions that make the player feel on the stage of cybersports competitions.
In addition to games, players also have to pay a lot of attention to reflex training. In particular, we devote time to improving concentration, memory, and reaction time. To do this, our teams perform complex tasks and monitor the duration of their performance.
As you can see, eSports gamers live by the same intense schedule as many other athletes.
