I feel like this is intentionally glossing over what it is like to be a female gamer. Half appericate that they are making it seem as what a male gamer would say but I know that there is more.

Wow these people seem so nice. They've kinda inspired me more to pursue professional esports. I don't know if it would be more difficult to get on a team since I'm also female though, but I'll do what I can

Everyone is mad commenting that it's same if you're a female or a male gamer, but I can assure you as a girl who's played videogames all her life I haven't been treated "the same". Is not even a feminism thing, this is just another reminder for people who still don't get it (cause trust me there are tons) that videogames are for everyone and that there are female players and even pro ones.

Ok? This team is absolutely TRASH and buzz feed is just describing what a professional team does for example G2 just won the pro league finals for CS in Dallas not that long ago. They had to go through a lot more than this team did because they actually won. They knew their opponents and were able to practice harder and much longer than any other team so they won. Just because they're female and they practice for many hours and don't get anywhere doesn't mean it's hard to be a female gamer it just means lots of teams are better than you. The only reason buzz feed talked about this team is because they're female and don't see their family much because of gaming

I don't really know why esports teams don't include both genders on any team , cuz there are even girl gamers that can beat really good guy gamers , this is really annoying cuz gaming is not a physical sport so guys are not going to be more powerful here.

I can't stand people who are like "They're just gamers. There's no girl gamers or guy gamers. It's just gamers." Cause it fucking isn't. Do you know how flipping hard it is to get any recognition as a "Gamer" when you're a girl?? No one takes you seriously until you whoop their asses in every game they got. And even then it's sometimes, "Oh well I was just going easy on you". AND sometimes even other "Girl Gamers" don't take you seriously!! And I'm speaking from experience as a "Girl Gamer".

Can i join? I have 17 years of experience? I do really wish that more girls were brought up with gaming and "boy-like" hobbies. Girls are a minority in this field, and it is actually pretty lonely for those minorities to be gaming only with guys. Also even when I do bump into girls on games, it seems to turn into some sort of bitching session on who's better and this and that, instead of wanting to make friends...

Thanks for trying to bring attention to the female gaming community. We are smaller, underestimated and misrepresented compared to the male dominated community. Its annoying when some male gamers either avoid you, hate you for territorial reasons or assume you only play the sims and are not able to play anything else.

Jesus, this comment section is sexist. "Guys are better gamers than girls, look at the leaderboards." Uh, no. That just means that those particular pro gamer teams are better than other ones. Guys aren't magically more dexterous and able to visually track better than girls. It's called being "allowed" to play something, because it's accepted for your gender.

'ChildOfTheSun32' 9 months ago
I pretty much dislike the games that professional gamers tend to play. Maybe it's just because I'm not very good at those games, but also, more than that, I can actively describe (objectively, I feel) what makes those games lame and therefore justify why I don't like them.

I don't get why so many people are down with this "gender-blindness" either... It's no stretch to hypothesize that women might experience professional gaming differently, considering the fact that the field has historically been male-oriented. This video does nothing except explore that. The simplistic push for equality amongst men and women (in terms of sameness) instead of equity for all genders (in terms of embracing and understanding differences) is more troubling than anything. The best displays of feminism embody the latter, and encourages innovation through diversity and complexity, not reductionism!

I play counter strike and it does get exhausting playing when you're losing or even just playing in general. you need to have/learn strategies and work together so although they aren't physically getting up and going to a "normal" job it is still difficult. you shouldn't discriminate just because they're doing a job considered "taboo".

There are no female specific tournaments, they end up getting tac'd to a big ESL event (Major CSGO event) or another big event. Most of the time after the top male teams are done, the viewer count for the female part is sub 30K. Men and women can compete together, they choose not to because they want their exclusivity. Also most of the female pros aren't nearly as good as the males.
John James Rambo
'John James Rambo' 9 months ago
To all you that are asking why we call girls playing games "girl gamers" and not "gamers", because theyre a joke. They cant compete with male counterparts as in any other sport. Thats why they make all female teams so they can compete among themselves. Same in football, basketball, etc. They play like girls, which makes them boring to watch. When there will be an all female team capable of beating a male pro team, great, but untill then let them have their little female leagues lmao

The people who are laughing at gamers, calling it fun. There's a thumb rule that you need to practice something for more than 10,000 hrs to become good at it. Try playing a game again & again for 10,000 hrs and see how mundane it becomes. But you've to simultaneously keep learning & improvising. Most of the pros have played double those hours & been playing since 10 yrs daily.
