South Italy isn't poor, I live there and anything is missing in my life, same as my friends. They all have a computer that can run at least CSGO. The problem here are internet providers. They don't want to upgrade our connections. I can't get even 0.70Mbs (downstream) at speedtest. I ping 100 in servers hosted in Germany, 150+ in sweden (when the connection is stable).
I usually have at least 30% packet loss every game, and 300+ ping. And I'm DMG lagging so hard.
And anyway i wouldn't go pro. In Italy we have others life's goals.
Like go to university, find a job (abroad, here there is no job for us).
Playing videogames it's just a hobby.
Then stop thinking that South Italy is poor, yeah our road are shit, services too, but just because we have bat politicians that think about their interests.
