at one point i was LEM and A- on ESEA. i didn't play anything else but CS and the game like completely took over my life... when i wasnt playing i was watching instructional videos and previous pro matches on youtube, i was watching all the current pro matches, and simply trying my best to get better and better
eventually i realized i was getting too angry with match losses, i was taking the game far too seriously, and eventually i just stopped playing so much
now about a year and a half later, if i play i only play 1 or 2 games and i'm usually high lol. my rank now is MGE
it's just not worth it....
