5 Ultimate Tips for Your First E-Sports Tournament in the Philippines - A Beginner’s Guide
If you’re planning your first gaming tournament, you will find this guide useful. It runs through some tips and tricks such as remembering to bring a friend with you, not doing anything to throw off your game, and remembering to make the occasion fun.
I’ve been to quite a few e-sports competitions, especially for overwatch and Fortnite. I remember it being nerve-wracking when I first started going to them. To help you feel more comfortable, I have penned this article along with some tips to know.
Let’s get to it.
1. Have Fun
By far, the best tip we can give is to remember to have fun. Yes, you are there to win, but this does not mean that you can’t have a good time. This will of course help you take the stress off too. You can go on social media and check out who else is attending the event. You can make friends with them online, then hang out when everyone is together in person. Twitter is a good place to check.
I would also advise you to attend the matches that you aren’t playing - you will be able to watch and have fun. While you are at the matches, you can take things up a notch and dabble in some light e-sports betting. Sites like 1xbet Philippines make it simple for newbies, and you would be able to get a good thrill while testing your analytical skills.
2. Practice & Plan Ahead
Be sure to practice and plan ahead. You would be able to refine your skills and make a proper action plan for the event. Of course, plan your trip ahead too. There’s a chance that unforeseen circumstances could ruin things otherwise.
3. Know the Rules
Another important point would be to know the rules of the tournament. You can’t use ignorance as an excuse - you’ll still get disqualified. Some common rules to follow include no in-game chatting, no fraternizing with your opponents, and most importantly, no taunting.
4. Bring Your Own Food
Bringing your own food is a pro-tip that I always recommend. You have no idea what they would serve at the venue, so this trick will help you avoid getting sick. Also, eating food that you regularly have back at home would help calm you. This is especially true if you have flown to another country for the event.
While on the topic, I would advise you to avoid getting too caffeinated. This can mess up your fine motor skills and concentration.
5. Keep Calm
Although this may sound obvious, it’s important that you try and stay calm. Even if you are more talented than all the other players, you will perform badly if your nerves get the best of you. As mentioned, bringing your own food can help with your nerves, as you would have something familiar to calm you down. I would also advise you to follow any routines that you have back home.
Of course, you can go out and spend time socializing when you are not practicing to help distract yourself.
As you saw from everything that was discussed, there are several tips and tricks that will help you prepare for your first competitive gaming tournament. You will be able to heed this advice no matter the tournament or competition that you would be going to.
You can also have a lot of fun. I definitely think that this is the most important as it would also help you make new friends and socialize.
Hopefully you found everything that was discussed useful.
