There is no professional gaming.

Wait, there are actually people that call themselves "professional" gamers? As in, "I don't get paid or sponsored, but I'm professional because I'm just that badass?"

IDK, Maybe I'm just new to Xbox fans.

in PvP... the Grammardin is invincible. But in PvM I find the Mathazon to be much stronger... as long as you've maxed out Derivatives.-wing

There's no professional gaming?

South Korea would like to have a word with you.

By definition, there are pro gamers who get paid to play competitively against other people.

Socially, no one will take you seriously if you tell them that you "professionally play video games"

Do you know how ridiculous that would appear on a job resume? Or any other resume for that sort?

And your point? You're still bad.


My point is I don't know how I could be upset when I dropped this game a long time ago, therefore making your point wrong.



Then why are you complaining? Just stop talking, nobody cares.

And my point still stands, you're bad.

Why am I applying for a job if I'm a professional gamer?

Unless you are payed on a salary to play against other people, quit throwing around the term "professional." You are people, who couldn't invest your time at a worthwhile hobby, so you have to feel some kind of positive feedback for the tons of hours your blow into it.

Don't get me wrong but I love gaming, but I just roll my eyes when everyone has to act like they some professional for a natural skill they possess.



So.... What about the people that get paid and have sponsors? I don't know about you, but if you have sponsors for your hobby you've got to be doing something right.


Most aren't and are just hopeless wannabes. That is the point a lot of us try to make most of the time.
