Becoming a Pro gamer today is dependent on many different factors. A decade ago, your wits and a half decent keyboard were enough to get you to play with the big boys. Fast forward to 2019 and now every bit of equipment, every console, mouse, every spec on your PC needs to be cutting edge just to get through the pro gaming ranks.
Intense Gaming, by definition, indicates that you’re looking at gaming sessions that can last up to 12 hours, which means you need tons of focus and comfort. Now office chairs are great, but without a top-of-the-line buddy gaming chair, you probably won’t make it past the 2-hour mark.
