balancing school and gaming
United States boombl4eatyou 
Hi mens of hltv I am 14 yr old 1800 elo player who wants to one day go pro but now high school is going to start for me and my schedule might get really hectic should i just focus on school and abandon my dream or should i try to balance the two and drop all extracurricular activities(sports clubs etc.). Give me ur opinion

drop the sports if ur not some prodigy, but dont let ur body go to shit
2020-08-02 04:55
thats what im thinking but i will have to convince my parents but i think they will be fine as long as my grades stay up

if ur 16/17 and havent got at least a decent shot at it, then get back into extracurriculars and tone back the cs grind if u want a decent college

if u need to focus on school you just dumb since 6th grade i havent done any homework outside of school, trust me, you can finish everything in school, no need to worry about anything when you get home just pay attention and do what you supposed to do

Depends how good you are. If you are 16/17 and you want to go pro, you should probably be in NA FPL. If you arent its still possible but VERY difficult.

im 14 and the na scene is kinda dead atm i think with my 5 stack i can get into level 10 and from there i can grind in fplc which is a complete joke atm

high school years are probably one of the best parts of life and that's worth more than risking those years playing a video game on an off chance you might become good enough to go pro. keep in mind cs is already 8 years old, by the time you even might become good enough to earn money from it the scene might already be as good as dead.

depends on how rigorous your high school is, what your work ethic is like, and what ur aspirations outside of csgo are. regardless of what you do, cultivate interests outside of video games. If all you do is play cs, or study, or I dunno jack off and smoke weed u might look back a few years from now and realize that you're a really boring person. Unless you are among the best and most talented cs players in the world, you are going to be a financial burden on your parents or you're going to be working 10 hours a day at walmart after graduation if you don't have a backup plan. getting marketable skills from the military, college, or a technical school is a lot harder if you have bad grades.

Imagine thinking you need to tryhard in school, dont give up on sports and etc tho, i did and now i regret it cause you might get bored of cs and then its really hard to get back into them

school is easy but if u do sports dont compromise with csgo
