Take your gaming to new levels this year

The start of a new year tends to bring about thoughts of how to plan your life moving forward - should we make any big changes? Will we find ourselves in more unprecedented times? Should we invest in that new mouse? 

When it comes to gaming, there are many things to consider to increase the chances of improving, just having a better time with the games you want to play, or perhaps thinking about getting into it for the first time. Where is the best place to start?

Frankly, sometimes you’re going to need some direction - because the best place to start is with a community. 


Looking for a starting point?

Everyone is looking toward online gaming as a viable point of connection between people - beyond the fact that it has quickly turned into a giant industry offering careers in multiple fields and a chance to jump into something truly exciting. 

If online gaming is a new thought for your 2022, here are some tips on how to learn more about it and help build your community: 


  1. Find content creators who speak to you

There are so many content creators who work hard every day to bring forward educational and entertaining material for their audience. In South Africa, this can be challenging, and the best way to help yourself and the growth of these professionals is to support them - either by watching, sharing, or investing in their progress. 


  1. Find websites that help you 

The best thing about the internet is that you can find nearly everything you need for your own education. With the wide, wide web being so vast, however, sometimes knowing who to listen to can be daunting - and that’s where narrowing your interests down comes into play. Does it seem like sport-orientated games will be your ideal path forward? The Toyota Gaming Engine, for example, has everything you need for learning more about it - tips, tricks, tournaments, and a connection with like-minded people. 


  1. Participate!

Once you have an idea of what speaks to you, now comes the time to participate. Now, this can be a daunting word, but participation doesn’t necessarily mean taking part in tournaments. Although some of you might feel ready for this, participation also means investing in your favourite esports team, making sure you are keeping up to date with your content creators, and showing some kind of support for your community. Participation is the best way to nurture positive growth in esports and online gaming, and that does start with you.

Community building is an essential part of a healthy gaming and esports industry. We have some amazing tournaments, content creators and communities that are looking to grow the South African scene in a meaningful way, and you can be an important part of that - whether or not you play yourself. All it takes is a step forward, and perhaps you will find yourself in a world with friends, new perspectives, and passion.
