I didn’t play video games casually either; I played them to an extremely competitive level, competed in tournaments and ran one of my teams like you would run a business.

I competed competitively in Counterstrike 1.6, playing in both CAL and CEVO leagues. My CS 1.6 team would practice every day between 4-8 hours (as a team). After my CS 1.6 career ended, I started to play World of Warcraft.
