Any good athlete will tell you that the key to development is having a good coach: someone to set goals, teach proper form, to keep you accountable and cheer you on. As eSports continues to grow and continues to establish itself as a legitimate professional sport, coaches are just one aspect of the game that can lend legitimacy and structure to a seemingly chaotic system. Weldon Green, eSports psychology trainer and head of MindGames, sat down to chat with us about his experience as a former athlete, and what motivated him to become an eSports trainer. Take a listen as Weldon and I discuss some of the psychology behind pro gaming and coaching, the two forms of “burnout”, and more!
