My Gaming Journey
Discovering the Thrill of Gaming
My gaming passion ignited with my first encounter with an FPS game, Call of Duty. The challenge and excitement gripped me, and soon I was hooked. Though I explored other titles like Raymond Legends, my love for FPS always lingered.
With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops, I was enthralled by its futuristic gameplay, unique characters, and wall-running abilities. This game rekindled my addiction and kept me entertained for a long time.
The PC Era and the Birth of a CS:GO Player
My first personal computer arrived when I was six, introducing me to the world of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO). Though initially a novice, my father and friends were supportive. Inspired by YouTube videos of pro players, I knew I wanted to become one of them. I spent nights playing and learning, gradually honing my skills.
Fortnite briefly captured my attention, where I excelled and connected with players worldwide. Despite the initial allure, updates and changes led me back to my true love: CS:GO.
Finding My Calling
Days turned into years, and my addiction to CS:GO grew. I knew then what I wanted to be when I grew up: a professional CS:GO player and streamer. Intensive daily training paid off, leading to accusations of hacking – a compliment that only fueled my passion.
By fourteen, I was playing with renowned CS:GO legends like kennyS, Mrtweeday, Lobanjica, and others, learning and evolving with every match.
