My life as an eSports journalist

Hmm. Not sure why I had this inspiration to write this post. Just though I would write about my volunteer job over at GosuGamers and what I hope to achieve from it.

Well what do I do? Basically I do whatever a sports reporter does on the newspaper. I write about the latest player transfer in the professional DotA scene. Do interview with players about their wins at certain tournaments or just a fun interview in general. Besides that, I also help my other colleagues with other things. Such as organizing events and talking with peoples of the scene about some things. Thats more or less what I do I suppose. A lot of people will say that its so stupid to do such a thing. I respect their views, but I dont think its a stupid thing to do. I believe in the future, maybe not the near future but in the future. Wars will be fought out on the computer rather than on the battlefields. Scores between nations will be settled using a mouse and keyboard.

On to what I expect to gain from this. To be honest, I dont know. I know I like writing and getting to know more about the eSports scene. Learning how things work and so on. Its pretty cool. Writing for GosuGamers, is to me something that I can be very proud about. One of the reason being, I am the only Malaysian to write for them. Not only that, I believe that i have contributed to the team in a very positive way. The fact that GosuGamers is one of the biggest sites for DotA and also one of the biggest eSports site in general makes me that much more proud. Coming from a small city in Malaysia, i can write on such a level speaks volumes to me. I may not write as good as some of the better editors from Fnatic, MYM or SK-Gaming. But hei I'm still damn proud of it.

Ok, kinda off topic there. lol. Back to topic. What do I expect to gain. Like I said, I'm not sure exactly. I suppose one of the things that i would like to gain is how to help promote eSports in Malaysia. It may not seem like it, but Malaysia has a pretty thriving eSports scene with very iconic people. For example, our FIFA representative for WCG, Si_Jali can give the top players from Germany a hard time in the final eight matches. We also have a very renowned eSports organization, DuskBin which houses one of the best StarCraft team outside of Korea. While these are all great, I would like to help promote eSports to be more accepted publicly, it doesnt have to be like what you see in Korea, but at least we dont get the stereotype look when we say we play on a competitive level.

That should be all that I seek to gain from this I suppose. Well, thats all I have on my mind right now. So I guess I'll sign off here. See ya dudes.
