#HGAcademy: Pro-Gamers Scout, GodNixon’s & Nimish’s Suggestions & Insights Into The ESports World

#HGAcademy: At a time when our physical spaces are confined and movement is stifled, the only constant in our lives is our own creativity. For a while, we, at Homegrown have been toying with the idea of evolving our platform into space that inspires generations to believe that their career paths are not limited to those shaped by our society and that there is a world out there that where creative industries are thriving. Our sole motivation behind this attempt is to shift the needle in the Indian creative industries.

Homegrown as a brand has always stood for responding to the Indian youth’s needs, and to this end, we bring to you HG Academy, to teach you everything your school didn’t. As we spend our days inside our homes and within ourselves, HGAcademy with its commune of creative thought leaders and pioneers will teach you the basics that you might not get access to elsewhere. We hope for it to evolve into a culture of creation, collaboration, discovery through an exchange of thoughts & ideas.

The coming weeks will see digital festivals, skill-building sessions, new personal & professional strategies and similar efforts towards connecting you to the world of creators to learn and be inspired. The aim is to deep-dive into the creative process, new ways of learning, re-imagination of old ways and experience and learn more. This session, we have e-Sports legends Scout, Nimish and GodNixon educating us professional gaming.

Their ability to establish a digital presence beyond the realms of the console has lead to a new typology of gamer; that is, one that communicated and works as an influencer while practicing as a gamer.

3 ways you think e-sports will change the sporting landscape in India:

Scout said that a generalisation of e-sports as a skill based activity that can be conducted professionally will inspire more and more gamers to take it up and make them realise that they don’t have to do anything they don’t like and that gaming can be a legitimate career.

People will start taking gaming more seriously and an increase in the number of quality gamers representing our country will concretise Gaming’s credibility as an actual sport.
