When doing our research and writing our blogs, we often pull from sources outside of eSports. Citing Sport Psychology, or traditional sport comparisons. However, we find it incredibly important to also hear it from the players themselves. Not only does it help us confirm the methods we write about, but it also helps us gain different perspectives that we can share with you. Something we’ve wanted to do for a long time is reach out to Free Agent players, and help them get exposure. Making it in this industry can be difficult for people without large followings.
Free agent players can also come with a different perspective. Since they aren’t signed by a team, they have the potential to bring a lot of ‘hunger’ in the way they operate. They are incredibly fascinating, and unfortunately we usually only get to know about them after they have been signed. We miss all of that sweat that goes on behind the scenes.
So we interviewed ‘Wishes’. An 18 year old Smash Ultimate, and Fortnite player who resides in New Jersey. He is currently one of the best Smash Ultimate Players in New Jersey, and an active streamer. He had some incredible insight on the improvement mindset, tournament endurance and motivation.Check out this snippet below, and then listen to the whole interview!
Z: You can’t even go to a tournament a Smash Tournament these days without seeing a prefix before someone’s name (a sponsor title). But you aren’t sponsored right now? Is there a reason why?
W: I’ve had offers in the past. I want to be on a team that I’m proud to rep, and proud to rep their brand. I don’t really play for money, if I was playing for money I probably wouldn’t be playing Smash. I’m kind of just waiting for a tier 1 team or a team that I’m really proud to be on.Continue Reading–>
