Tell us a little about yourself? Who is YoungBuck?
I am Joey ''YoungBuck'' Steltenpool, 20 year old professional gamer from the Netherlands.
With your recent departure from SK-Gaming, what are your plans for the future? Will we see you active in any of the remaining events of this season?
I want to stay a professional gamer however I don't expect to play at a major lan event in the nearby future. For now I am keeping my options open, but I'm hope to play for a great team soon.
How much time, dedication and effort does it take to be a professional League of Legends player? What does your daily life look like when it comes to preparing, training and trying to improve on a professional level?
If you want to compete at the highest level then you have to approach it as a full time job. It's not just about playing a lot, but it's also analyzing opponents, their picks/playstyle that matters a lot at pro level. When I was preparing for Poland I played 14 hours a day, mostly trying to improve on certain champions and duoqueuing with the jungler to get better synergy and understanding between eachother.
How would you describe the mentality needed to be successful? What separates good players from the pros?
Many players have different mentalities but in general being open to tips from others and being able to learn from mistakes is important. I think that what seperates me from others is the drive to be the best player in the world, not settling for second.
