What is your favourite video game of all time?



Favourite game of all time is probably call of duty 1 as it was my first fps + technically pc game that got me hooked at a young age. No clue what would have happened if I never played it 😅

Have you always wanted to be a professional Esports player?

Ive always wanted to be involved in the gaming scene since a young age as its always been my passion , that plus the fact that I’ve always enjoyed competition, so have always aspired to be a pro once I knew that esports existed, which was around 13 years ago

What does the day of a professional Esports player look like?

A day as pro player, can vary but most days are wake up, starting warming up/training on aim for about 30 mins to an hour, followed by a couple of hours of public games or ranked modes with other teammates or randoms ( for about 4-5 hrs) then in the evening most scrims aka practice games vs other pro teams are played. Which goes on for another 4 ish hours.

With briefing after all the games, discussing strats/comms and all that happened. Then go to sleep and rinse and repeat.

Days change if there is a tournament that specific day then its warmup into a few practice/theory sessions with the team and then straight into tournament games.

Majority of esports pros base their hours around when they can find practice vs other pro teams, in pubgs case this was mainly in the evenings, so youd see people wake up a bit later than usual so they are more refreshed for this time.

What advice would you give to an amateur gamer looking to break through into the professionals Esports scene?

My advice for amateur gamers looking to break through into the esports scene is two things, A lot of people are looking to become pro or be the best, and like real life sports, it is really hard to make it, as thousands or millions even are trying the same as you, so for this you just need to stand out, be as efficient with your time as possible, and that come down to how you practice. Altho you always need to put hours in in just playing, its always good to review your games or games from people ahead of you and try to impliment/replicate and then adapt to your own style.
And secondly, when you are in the amateur scene and playing smaller scale tournaments, dont be stuck on teams that you might outskill eventually. You see this especially with people who play tournaments initially with their friends and then either never leave or take a long time before going to another team, if you are serious enough to make it into the pro scene, unfortunately you will have to always look upwards and what’s next. But if you stay stuck in a team or scene that might be much lower than your level it could hinder your chances of improving,as this mainly happens when you start facing better opponents.

Where does the game tag Scoom come from?

The gamer tag Scoom is a name I invented back when I was around 8 years old after I had seen the Terminator in a 3d show in a theme park in Orlando, my cousins and I were coming up with cool nicknames and out of the blue I just said Scoom. (Kinda like boom 💥) and it just stuck
