Youtube channel looks sick! That pro tip video had some good pointers. Biggest difference between pro and amature. Is your consistancy. How good are you on a regular basis. Some people have great games here and there, but is every single game great?

Thanks for the compliments, I really appreciate them. In terms of games being great, it all depends on how you define great. I first and foremost ALWAYS try to win. Winning over everything without a doubt. But usually when we are running a full crew the games are pretty awesome. I had back to back games just last night of 103-0 and 115-3. Hopefully I answered your questions!

One difference between the good players and the pros is how much they care which one they are. If you're someone who always wants to play like money's on the line where you win constantly, always have top stats, etc, you'll take the extra time to think about things like strategy and map layout and you'll be much more focused. Not everyone strives for that.

I had a buddy who was all about being pro. Watched tips, hints, and tricks videos, read tutorials, took it all really seriously, got crazy stats each match. I played middle of the road. One day he mentioned that I wasn't a good player. I corrected him and said that I was just as good as he was, I just didn't care as much as he did lol

He asked me to prove it so I "applied" myself to make a point and we ended up neck and neck for the rest of the night. When he asked why I don't play like that all the time instead of letting people think I'm $hitty, all I could say was, "Cuz it's not important to me".

I used to do the clan thing and join ladders and leagues but these days, I'm just sitting down for a bit of fun after work and some social time with my friends so I don't give a rat's booty if I go 30/1 or 5/15. I also don't care how crappy my stats are now because of it lol But that's the main reason I wouldn't call myself a pro anymore. Not because I don't have pro skill but because I don't have pro dedication.

I would have to agree, it is more about team work and strategy. You see these pro gamers and game battle teams in Friday Night Fights and all that, and what sets them apart is the strategy, working together, and sticking to the plan despite all odds. The Great Teams and Players stick to the plan and can manage come backs, where as the Good Teams and Players might fall apart and try to improvise and make things happen. Pro Teams make things happen through team work, not solo play, and that is the difference.

Working together and devloping strategies is absolutely the most crucial and critical thing when taking call of duty in the esports world to the next live. I think you hit it on the head. There have been numerous times where I've started or been a part of a great GB team, but we were always that one person away from really making a name for ourselves. While gun skill and accuracy and class set up knowledge is extremely important, it's the dedication to develop strategies for every map and game type that set people apart. Love the response man.

Why would you want to turn pro in video gaming anyways?  What a wasted existence.

Spend your whole life in front of a TV to get $2,500 rarely, if you're lucky, and be worshipped by pimple-faced dweebs.

It is for the prestige.  If you are earning $2500, then you aren't at the top.  I made $1000 at local tournaments, and I didn't have that much competition.  Now if I went to a $25k tournament then the stakes would be higher and competition would be harder.

If a team is considered the "best" then they would be making upwards of $100k+ a year.  Not that bad for just being the best at a video game.

There are no "Pro's" in Call of Duty, sorry.

There can be players who take it more seriously, but you can't be pro at a game like this...Just better than others if you take it seriously as I said.

Pros are arrogant enough to call themselves "Pro".

The rest of us do the best we can and just have fun doing it.

So people that are pros at football and basket ball are arrogant, too?

Since the rest of us do the best we can and just have fun doing it?
