Me and my friends recently formed a team 3-4 of us and are currently choosing a game to attempt to go pro to and do some tournaments. I have looked at CS:S, Heroes of Newerth, and Unreal tournament. Like I said we need a team game 3-4 and it needs to be on PC. Also needs to be a game with a decent amount of tournaments. Thank you. :D

Oh, just to mention we all toke up together too. This is just a summer hobby I guess you could say.

Call up some local game stores and ask about what tourneys, if any, the do. Game stop occasionally does tourney's for games that have recently come out. Small private owned game stores are the most likely place to find tourneys, but the money is small. I played a few tourneys previously for Halo 2 and 3. Me and a group of friends entered an FFA tourney and I landed 1st, with my younger brother in 2nd and a buddy in 4th. Made about 40 bucks for about an hour or 2 or playing some games.

why not spend your summer doing something productive like volunteering, interning, or even playing REAL sports OUTSIDE in a league where you socialize with people IN REALITY

I'd say css used to be the best, I don't know anymore. Its 5 man teams anyways, and if you aren't already good at it its probably not the best option.

Your on the wrong forum to be spouting off shit like that! This is the video game section of a weed forum!

Check out League of Legends, it's a new game very similar to DotA (which was very competitive in its time), it's free, and lots of fun.

If you are interested in tournaments and stuff, check out Game Battles, they have many games they host tournaments and ladder for on there, including LoL.

Enjoy! :smoke:

MLG sadly doesn't much support computer. I would do CS:S but CPL has down but there is word of it coming back.

i only got back on here bc of neg rep given to me
actually i think this is the perfect forum for my comment. i play video games all the time (nothin like blazin and pickin up the sticks), but i dont think video games are a profession where one goes "pro". grasscity should condone active, healthy lifestyles and not sedentary, wasting-away-your-summer activities

apparently you never heard of Homepage | Major League Gaming major league gaming they sponsor players and tournaments. According to this Hruby: So you wanna be a pro video game player? - ESPN Page 2 their season ending halo 2 tournament grand prize was $100,000. :P

straight from MLG's website

Madden Final Results:
:hello:1st - Problem - $50,000:hello:
2nd - Jet Steele - $25,000
3rd - Prodigy - $15,000
4th - Dynasty - $10,000

so lets do some math here sponsors + tons of money = PRO

go to the health & nutrition section if your worried about peoples health don't come to the gaming section talking out your ass and preaching on your soap box.:smoking:

Fighting games like Street Fighter might worth putting some effort into. There are lots of major tournaments in many of the states in the US with some having pots up to $5,000 :eek:

You are so ignorant it is breath-taking. First of all, nothing posted here is supported by GC in any way. Second of all, who are you to place value on what people want to do with their spare time? I don't suppose you agree with the government saying you're not allowed to smoke weed, so don't be a hypocrite.
