Professional esports, while much more widely accepted than it was only years ago, is still coming into its own. There's a lot about competitive gaming that a mainstream audience doesn't even consider -- like, coaching. The highest level of competition within esports doesn't have players relying solely on instincts and practice hours. Like any sport, they all have coaches helping them with strategy and refinements to optimize everything. There's always something you can do better.

I'm okay at Rocket League. I've sunk approximately 1,300 hours into it between PC and Xbox. I'm currently ranked at Champ 2 in the 3s playlist, and Champ 1 in the 2s playlist. Rocket LeagueΒ is funny like that, though. No matter how good you are, you always feel like you're a long ways from where you want to be. Remember: There's always something you can do better.
