How To Be A Professional Gamer bit.ly/fnaticpro
This is an aspirational tract for the young LeagueOf Legends fan, focusing on Berlin-based esports team Fnatic. It’s formulaic stuff – a potted history of the game and its competitive scene; profiles of, and advice from, current Fnatic team members – and few will be surprised to learn that the best way to make it to the top is talent and hard work. But the book also adds some much-needed humanity to a sport where it is teams, not individuals, on which the spotlight shines. One player’s tale of decamping to Fnatic’s Berlin house, having never lived away from home before, is gently affecting. One for the Christmas stockings, naturally, but also for those seeking a handle on one of the fastest-growing pursuits on the planet.
