The psychology of eSports and its influencing factors

Published

 on

Cybersport is an innovative and very complex industry from many points of view, in which various influencing factors are intertwined and everything is closely interconnected. It is not just a game competition, it is a kind of source for the development for other areas, for example, esports betting appeared precisely because of the fact that cybersport began to actively develop and attract multimillion-dollar investment from sponsors. Many computer games have gained crazy popularity, there were even sites where people bet on their favorite video games. Many dota 2 betting sites appeared, as this game has not lost its position for many years and still remains one of the leading games by the number of players worldwide.

 

 

We can make the bold assertion that psychology is the first thing to pay attention to if we want to know the secrets of cyber players’ success, as well as understand the strategies they use during tournaments. Good gamers must understand psychology if they want to be one step ahead of their opponents. It is important for a cybergame player to see promising ways to solve problems in games and to be able to notice and fix their weaknesses and work on them. Fear, anxiety and insecurity can only harm the player, so one can become a professional cyber player only if one can overcome all of their fears and complexes within themselves.

                  Psychological portrait of a successful eSports player

In addition to basic professional skills, which relate to practical skills and knowledge of the various intricacies of the game, a cyber player needs to have other qualities that are more common to all successful people. This has nothing to do with outperformance or cunning. It has to do with self-control, the ability to cope with one’s emotions and worries, stress resistance and level of ambition. Self-esteem also plays a significant role, because it determines how much the gamer can afford, whether he considers himself a worthy opponent and ready to concede the competition.

So many talented and really skilled people have never become famous and successful, and the reason for this is their lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem. A true professional in eSports is someone who is not afraid to step outside the box and break stereotypes.

This is a person who does not care about the opinion of others, the one who is not afraid of defeat, but always believes in their victory. It is desirable that a cyber gamer should not be a neurotic person, because it is extremely harmful and can even destroy a career.

A super important skill is the ability to cope with competition and psychological pressure from the outside. Many successful cybergame players have haters who write negative words and opinions, but being able to abstract away from that is the key to a healthy self-image. People who play computer games are known to be prone to depression and can be very sensitive. Moreover, it is not uncommon for a person to develop an addiction to games, which is very risky. Professionals should not allow this, because the abuse of any occupation causes imminent damage not only to the psyche, but also physical health.

 

                    What you need to work on to succeed in cybersports

Beginning cyber gamers have a tough road ahead of them, with challenges, insights, obstacles, and good times. You should always remember that eSports is not for the faint of heart, even during the virtual game produces a lot of adrenaline, so keeping yourself in control and staying as calm as possible is necessary. It will also be useful to learn to determine the weaknesses of your opponent, for this you need to analyze the behavior of the opponent during the game. This is very difficult, because you have to concentrate not only on your own, but also on other people’s actions.

When it comes to cyber sports tournaments, it is important to remain calm and confident in front of the crowd. Fear of the audience can confuse the player and cause them to take spontaneous and rash actions that are more likely to result in defeat than victory. Pay attention to the way professional cyber gamers behave, they demonstrate absolute confidence, even excessive. They are not afraid to take risks which is why they win their most brilliant victories.

To become brave, you have to work on your inner complexes and your fear of judgment. Cybersport is a great field for psychological analysis and observation of human reactions, so knowing the basics of psychology and some of its techniques will help you succeed in the cyber sports industry.

The daughters of an Indigenous woman police believe to have been the victim of a serial killer were on Parliament Hill this morning, calling on the federal government to take action.

Police believe Morgan Harris and three other Indigenous women in Winnipeg were murdered by the same man, who has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder.

Winnipeg police also say they think three of the victims’ bodies may be in a landfill, but they don’t plan to do a search because the area is too large.

Harris’s daughters, Cambria and Kera Harris, say the government needs to end violence against Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people.

Doctors say influenza spread is starting to hit older adults as surveillance levels indicate the hospitalization rate of seniors is not that far behind that of children.

Data from the Public Health Agency of Canada for the week ending Nov. 26 show that children under five still made up the highest number of hospitalized flu patients, but the rate at which people 65 years of age and older are hospitalized is also rising.

Hospitalizations among both young children and seniors have increased sharply over recent weeks during a flu season that started earlier than usual.

Infectious diseases specialist Dr. Isaac Bogoch says he’s already seeing more seniors with flu as in-patients at Toronto General Hospital.

Bogoch says there’s a perfect storm of a monster influenza season without enough people getting the flu shot, while hospitals are overstretched.

Dr. Matthew Oughton, an infectious diseases specialist at Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, says in most years, children tend to get the flu first and then bring it home to parents and grandparents — and that hospitals in his province are on the cusp of seeing that impact.

Both doctors are urging people to get the shot, saying it’s not too late.
