I was a former Overwatch console player (PSN) where I reached Top 500 for 5 different seasons and my highest ranking was around 110. I also used to be a Lucio main where I got ranked #1 Lucio NA for console. I now play on PC, current ranking grandmaster (4000s). I play the main tank for my schools Esports team and I am the team captain. We joined the NASEF Overwatch Fall 2018 Tournament where we placed 9th out of 46 different schools.
Ever since I was little I had a passion for playing video games, my family would always try to take me away from video games because they saw it as horrible addiction, but for me there was always more to it then just completing a simple objective. I remember fantasizing with my friend at my old high-school about how awesome it would be if we established an Esports club at our school, but unfortunately we didn't have enough funding so we couldn't make our dreams reality. I then transferred to my current high school where it was their first year joining an Overwatch tournament and I decided to try out. I was scared at first because I was console player and only had around 4 hours of experience on Overwatch (PC), but I got there and used my 700 hours of console experience on Overwatch and made the team as main tank. My teammates always tell me that I play a very good Reinhardt, but I always look for places to improve in. We placed 9th out of 46 schools in the NASEF Overwatch Fall Tournament 2018 and we continue to work hard and are joining new tournaments. After playing in that one tournament I got a glimpse of the amount of time and frustration that comes with playing at the Esports level and I am ready to tackle it. I want to be recruited because despite the amount of stress and hours of practice, I love playing video games and being able to do something I always loved as a job sounds like a dream come true for me.
Being main tank for an Overwatch team is the best opportunity you will ever have to be a leader. I learned that in game you have to do lots of shot calling, be on the look out for any potential flankers and always have to be thinking ahead of time. You must give it your full attention and protect your teammates. When I would die and was waiting to respawn, I still shot called and told my teammates to continue to communicate when for some odd reason they would stop. I also learned that there's lots of more work to be done outside of the game, my team would feel down after we lost a round or a game and I had to be there to tell them that everything's ok and we just need to play the game how we play and not let a simple loss get in our heads.
Well I am currently enrolled in 3 AP's and apart of 4 different clubs, so time management is something that I had to learn how to master. Our practice schedule is Mondays, Fridays, and Sundays, our games would be on Wednesday. Being apart of the Esports club at my school, I put in extra practice time and practice on Tuesday and Thursdays, so the only time I really have a day off is on Saturday. The first thing I do when I get home is finish my homework and study for any tests I have the next day while eating in order to be the most time efficient. On the weekends I take advantage that I have no school and finish all my homework on Friday and go to the gym at the night with my friends on the weekend. I am on a tight schedule, but it is ok because I am doing what I love the most which is studying and being able to play video games at the competitive level.
Being on the tight schedule that I am I try my best to find opportunities to give back to my community. The first and most important thing is giving my team all that I have each and every practice so we could win games for our school. On the weekends when I have free time I walk my aunts dog and pick up any dogs in our apartment complex along the way. The time when I really have time to give back to my community is during the summer when I have more free time. I volunteer at local charity centers and go online to search up for any other place I can volunteers. Giving back to my community is important to me because they gave me the opportunity to do what I love which is compete in the competitive scene. I have motto that my mom taught me when I was little which is always to ask how I can give back rather than asking how other can give to me.
