Wanna go pro
Russia ty1ercs 
Is it normal, that I'm 22 and I wanna go pro on CS:GO? I always wanted to be pro player, but my PC was so bad. I'm currently playing on 75 Hz, but it feels terrible and you have a huge disadvantage against the enemies, who is playing on 144/240 hz monitors. And I don't had much time for training. I already got bachelor diploma at "Software Engineering" and already attended to Master education at "Data Science" (both educations was free for me, cuz I'm smart xD), but I like CS:GO more, than programming. Currently I'm trying to find a job as a programmer, but my goal is to get money for good PC (and for some staff, like clothes etc. I'm not an average gamer without real life lol) and start training (I also have youtube channel with 35k followers). Currently I'm a lvl 7 on faceit with 5k hrs (I know, this is shit). So, the question is: Is it possible to reach fpl-c/fpl, when you have to go to the job (08:00 - 17:00) and then you have to go to the university (18:40 - 21:30) (University is only 4 times a week, job is 5 times per week). BUT I will buy some staff, like Premium Faceit, regional hub and ECL. Mb I will pay to some 3k elo players for lessons and to play with them on premium faceit. Is it good goal?

If you could get a remote job and still have a decent amount of free time, you could try going pro

Forget about becoming a pro, its too late and your not good enough (Level 7 at 22 years old) I suggest you work on your youtube channel and stream, if you have a good personality, you'll make more money.

Follow your dream, you already have a backup if cs fails you can get a job having a degree. That's better than most people who want to go pro as they have no fall back and put all their eggs in one basket.

only problem is that you are level 7. Youre just clearly not good enough. If you were to be a pro u should at least be 3k elo player. 75hz means nothing here. But besides that you can aim for becoming level 10 and just enjoying the game

Hey m8 Im just gonna say, I kinda want to do the same, and im more or less on the same situation as you, im 16 only but my PC sucks dick and I basically cant play well on 128 ticks since its laggy for me 50-80fps with drops basically So I am stuck with MM What I want to say to you is that FPLC is a BAD objective, I'd say the BEST, most fun, and I guess a bit easier way to get pro is to get a premade of 5 and start playing small online tournaments and stuff I also had a friend who reached 3K elo or so and said that 5stacking there is VERY fun because you would always get another 5 stack who knows what they are doing (Executes etc...) gl

I think it's possible even with limited time that you have. It's more about how you spend the hours not how much time you spend doing it. I have a bit over 5k hours as well and I also hover around the level 7 mark in Faceit but I have friends who are level 10 with around 2k hours and some people can do that in even less hours (or get to really high elo in that time). If you spend the time actually practicing efficiently and working on a lot of different aspects of the game (not just your aim) you have a much higher chance of succeeding instead of being like me and spending roughly 3k hours just doing everything else but practicing efficiently. Also about the 240hz monitor and good PC. Yes, they help but you can still go far even without them. Even if your PC and/or monitor aren't the best you can still outsmart your enemies and improve on other parts of the game. In the end you will win more duels just with good positioning and smart moves not just with a good reaction time. Nevertheless if you are aiming to go pro then a good PC and a 240hz monitor will make the ride much less bumpier and make the game feel better overall. Either way I wish you good luck and I hope my ramblings helped even slightly. ^^ Edit: Also don't listen to ralizar (that's roye), he's just baiting and doesn't really know what he is talking about.

You're competing against a bunch of 14-year-old kids playing 12 hours a day. And you are not level 7 because you are playing on a 75hz monitor, but because you are bad. No chance.
2021-08-11 11:09
If you could leave uni and job, it might be possible. Forget about faceit premium and queuing that, rather find a team. Playing with team, everything is easier
2021-08-11 11:11
If you have a lot of spare time go for it. You have a backup plan anyways. I’d recommend trying to find a team instead of just grinding faceit and trying to get into fpl c.

If you're not at least level 10 after 5K hours (even with 75hz), you won't be a pro. You're just not smart enough. To 2500 elo you really don't good PC, you can just outplay everyone. Also, you said you can only play 2 days a week, you won't get to FPL-C quals with this schedule ever.

I agree with you, that I can outplay enemies even with 75 hz monitor. But I wasn't really trying to train seriously since summer 2019. I know, that I can train a lot and get lvl 10, but I just don't had much time. That's why I want to buy good PC, 240 hz monitor, good devices, premium faceit and mb pay to two 3k elo players for play as a premade with them and get good lessons. I spent last two years just for playing MM on Globals for fun and that's it

if you become good at cs you can become pro, its that simple, first get lvl 10, then find a mix or team and grind elo, but remember if you bottom frag all your games then you simply wont become a pro, you have to be outstanding in the game. Theres a big aim difference in lvl 7 and 10

2022-01-25 08:42
Try to go pro since you already have a backup
2022-01-25 08:43
I dont think its worth it tbh, considering u can have a good career in programming or some tech related stuff. Gaming in general just doesnt pay that good if u will stay semi pro forever imo and the chances of u becoming pro are very slim considering how many kids are willing to play a lot more per day than u, probably will be quicker to learn and also quicker to get noticed by teams. U also dont seem to me that u are especially talented since u are lvl 7 with 5k hours, sure ur ceilling is probably 2k+ with a good pc and a little motivation, but i still dont think pro level. Also the biggest point will be, since u have both uni and job it will be very hard to make connections and invest time in a team since u will probably have players who will be willing to invest a lot more time and they will be dragged down by ur schedule and availability. So ye, maybe start investing time in youtube or stream, imo dont waste ur time in aiming to be pro, if u are good enough while streaming etc and see a rapid growth probably u will make some connection and u can rethink what ull do later

I also didnt take into account the fact that after 8h job + some hours of uni, u will probably be tired af when u get home and even tho u wont feel really tired u will still underperform in game if u get to a higher level. This +the fact that u will probably dont have time to do a basic workout + basic socializing, things that are also connected to performing, both at job and at the game
2022-01-25 09:20
Not possible with your schedule. Youll be so tired that only thing you will want to do is go to the bed. If you havent had university, then its easy, you can play from 17:00 to mid night, and with 7 hours of practice you would have chance of achieving something. But like this? You will come home, you will have to preapre a bit fo university, it probably takes time to get there, so you would have time for one match without warming up, then you come home, you will warm up, play 1-2 games and you will probably be tired af with schedule like this

i think the fastest way to go pro isn't through Fpl/faceit system but through your country's local scene. Try to start by getting to faceit 10 as its a requirement for joining most serious teams, then find a team who takes the game seriously and wants to work hard to improve. Try to do well both individually and with the team, eventually people will notice you and you will get a chance to play on a better team. Focus on communication and being friendly as well, otherwise people don't want to play with you. For now you just need to grind faceit i think, try to get to a really high mechanical level and carry the games you play
2022-01-25 09:30
you have 0.0001 change of going pro if your not going to but atleast 40 hours a week into it. everyone wants to go pro and kids these days will play 12-14 hours and improve more than you.
2022-01-25 09:35
you still have time to do it, but i guess you should start upgrading your setup, because 75 hz too bad against player with 144 and 240, also a good pc. And maybe have a backup job in case u couldnt do it
2022-01-25 11:52

Now as 29 years old player he had trials in AGO but finally he will play in darko team. In my oppinion everything is possible when you will hard work. :)

2022-01-26 07:19
I mean everything is possible but in this case I'm kind of sceptic. 22 yo, 7 lvl on FACEIT, well, it doesn't look good. You should be able to reach 2K even if your monitor/pc isn't that good. Back in the day, I managed to reach 2K elo while I was playing on 75 HZ monitor and average fps 150. But yeah, it depends on how much effort you put into the game. You can always try to qualify for FPL-C and then for FPL since I believe it's not that hard at all, considering how fucked up FPL-C qualifier system is. FPL-C in general is random as fuck and even 0.90 KD bots can easily make it. But yeah, if you love the game and you have a grinding mindset why not.
2022-01-25 12:35
Man premium grind for fplc is a full time job, you need like 200 matches in a month. Thats like 166 hours. + u need to get to lvl 10, to even be available to get fplc. Just quit, live life work on your self and get job.
2022-01-25 12:40
I won't say like others "you won't make It" but if you really want to chase the dream, have a backup plan. Study something while playing the game or devote yourself for a couple of years and if you don't see any sufficient improvement just let it go and do something more productive. Very few people make It to pro, take that into consideration, It's a really tough road.
2022-01-25 12:46
Its going to be a hard journey, but never stop trying! Good luck with your journey mens!

Sorry to say this but to become a pro in any sports its a thrive that starts in young age. You would have grinded already and wouldn't question this if it was truly your dream. Ask your self why do you really want to be a pro player? If it the fame, glory, easy money, fun to play for living.. All these are wrong answers and you should go for streaming with that really good follower base.
