On 12 April 2016 MyGaming wrote an article "How much money South Africa’s best gamers really make".
In such article it was noted that, "While other top gamers who MyGaming spoke to were hesitant to say how much they earned, they all agreed that it is not possible to support yourself financially through competitive gaming in South Africa."
I feel that the MyGaming article reflects a number of articles that I have written about professional gamers over the years, being:
- SA clans fail the SA professional eSports gamer
- How does SA get professional gamers?
- Professionals need to be disciplined
- So you want to be a Pro Gamer?
Ultimately, gamers must understand that it is not prize money that creates a professional gamer. What does is:
- A monthly salary,
- A professional attitude, and
- The willingness to comply with contractual obligations.
