Now is the Time to Get into Competitive Gaming
By Jerry "LordJerith" Prochazka




With the release of Halo: Reach, millions of gamers will be flocking to Xbox live to not only play the single player, but pwn noobs, earn bragging rights, make new friends, and form teams to play competitively. With the recent release of Blizzard's Starcraft II, and the future of releases of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Medal of Honor, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and Gears of War 3, I am here today to tell you that NOW is the time to get into competitive gaming, either as a fan or as a player.

"I said 'GET INTO IT!'"




I first want to reach out to those of you that are thinking about competing. Some of you may be hesitant because you feel that it's too late for you to play at the top level. I am here to tell you that nothing could be farther from the truth. If you followed Major League Gaming's 2009 and 2010 Major League Gaming Pro Circuit, you would have seen many new players break into the top ranks. Many rising stars, who did not have a deep and long background in competitive gaming. decided to give it a shot and reach for the top. Many of you who read this are exceptionally talented at video games and you don't even know it.

"You never know until you try."




I encourage you now to start identifying the top players, top organizations and the tournaments and leagues where your favorite games are being played. To give you a good start, you can bet that both Major League Gaming and the World Cyber Games will have Halo: Reach competitions. I'd like to take this opportunity to plug a four part series for this very blog called Competing Position, including Pros vs Amateurs, Finding a Team, Team Training, and Clutch vs Choke.

And if you're looking for a great gaming community, as always I recommend vVv Gaming. Yes, there is an obvious bias here, but I am very proud of our community and the experience we offer players.

For those of you that are a fan of competitive gaming I have to recommend two podcast shows. Live on 3 hosted by DJ Wheat, the most respected name in competitive gaming coverage, and vVv Gaming's own The Losers Bracket, hosted by yours truly and a great team of gamers with diverse gaming backgrounds.

"The new face of competition?"


There are many podcasts that deal with specific game titles only. For example, those of you who are brawlers, and for those of you who don't know that means players of Super Smash Bros Brawl, there is Directional Influence, a podcast hosted by vVv Gaming and dedicated to all things Brawl.

Now, what are you waiting for? There is a revolution in entertainment happening right before you. Many of you may still not have gotten into Facebook, but with a major motion picture release, hopefully, you'll catch up to social media. Beyond that, there is competitive gaming. In case you have not noticed, an entire network of communities, tournaments, events and media outlets have sprung up and there's no better time to be involved than right now. Pick up your copy of Halo: Reach, download Starcraft II, preorder your favorite games and get involved. You may have missed Facebook, but just like it's never too late to sign up and get involved on Facebook, or to get a smart phone, it's never too late to become a part of competitive gaming.

Good write up Doom. This got me really wanting to play Reach competitive. I may just try it and see how I do at DC.

Yeah, I'll give Reach a try competitively and see where I can take it from there. It's been awhile since I've done anything Halo related.
