Early in her career, Mystik won the second season of WCG Ultimate Gamer and currently streams almost daily on Twitch.
During an interview with World Guinness Records, Mystik talked about her success and the advice she gives to those who want to follow in her footsteps.
Here are Mystik’s top tips for players getting into the Esports industry:
1. Find a game that you’re passionate about. Don’t play a game for eight hours that you do not enjoy. Find a game that you love, get great at it, and excel.
2. Play healthy, stay healthy. Don’t get lost in it with energy drinks and eating pizza all day. Make sure you are keeping your mind and body in peak performance. It will reflect in your gaming ability.
3. Make sure you have a good support system. Always rely on your family, but also have friends or competitors that you can practice or scrimmage against. Other people will help you improve.
4. Practice, practice, practice. Like any athlete in any sport, you have to be totally invested and dedicated to it.
