Education is definitely really important. Moreso for those who do not truly understand what they should pursue in life. That doesn't mean it's the only path in life though. The Video Game industry has been booming for over a decade now, numbers, interest and spotlight overall have been steadily increasing throughout the years. That includes job opportunities.

I was first introduced to eSports in 2005, I was still in highschool and close to college but I kept a lot of my focus on eSports because it was something I was really passionate about and something I felt I could build a future with. I used to be sponsored just like some of these players and I would travel to compete at events. Granted I never came close to winning any :P because I wasn't as talented but I took any opportunity I could.

Now I'm at Riot, doing what I would consider as my "dream" job. I'd say leaving my education behind turned out alright for me. It doesn't work for everyone but if you work hard and set goals, you can achieve them.


I am not trolling but this is horrid advice. This is like saying "I won the lotto so you should play too!".

Education is a sure thing, there is always a happy medium between education and pursuing your dreams. Doing what you did is not advisable to the masses and is honestly irresponsible to recommend.

Hi, Crumbzz I'm from Argentina, and i studied english for a time, but i can't do as well as you do. I guess it's a matter of practice.
Anyway, on top of all, i wanted to say that i think you are one of the best commentators for the tournaments. Think about that.
I watch your stream, enjoy your music (it's awesome how we listen to pretty much the same rock bands, and OSTs), i respect your playing style, logical and cautious. Also, i like how you are capable of not-raging, but still recognize the badness on anyone's poor decitions, including those of your own. You are clearly a smart guy so you are going to be a success with your new team.

And that's all. Thanks for the big plays.


PS: I haven't still heard you listening to the Melvins, The Pixies, and please try out this argentinian rock band called Los Natas, because they make one of the best psichedelic stoner rocks ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8o9LGrwtyY&feature=related

No where did I say you should all forget education and copy me because I definitely do not think that! I said education is really important, especially to those who do not find an outlet for what they want to achieve. That doesn't mean that you can't be successful if you do not choose the standard route of college degree -> job though.

Yes, but it's a tiny, tiny chance. Never try to tell people "hey that's an option" when it really isn't. That's just encouraging impressionable kids to turn away from higher education because you got lucky.

Kids who play this game look up to Riot employees, and treat them like rock stars. Please use your influence responsibly.

I heard on stream that you attend UBC? By any chance is this University of British Columbia? If so, see you there! I'm going there in September!

Education will likely allow you to enter a career which would afford you the time to keep this as a hobby.

Good luck with your future in either outlook.
