India has world’s largest youth population currently as more than 50% of its population are below the age of 25. This feat has also contributed in growing gaming market across India. The innovations which are taking place every day by leading gaming brands elevating the ongoing craze. Some of the innovations like Augment Reality, Virtual Reality and Mixed Reality have given a magical touch to the traditional gaming. More and more youngsters are taking this as a profession because there is huge opportunity in this Industry. Furthermore, the leading brands organizing the gaming tournaments and camps to motivate such young talent. There are lots of highly paid gaming tournaments for hardcore gamers who are into various games such as counter strike, street fight etc. DT recently interacted with few well-known gamers across India to know more about their opinion and expectations from this industry.

Moving Towards # 1  

There is no doubt about the potential of gaming market in India as the mindset has changed in recent years. As per the current trend, we may see India at top in the gaming industry in years to come. “I think that is a very ambitious statement, but at the same time very possible. In the earlier years this was not possible due to the lack of support and infrastructure, but now it! I would be stoked if that statement actually becomes a reality down the line” commented, Bhavin Kotwani from Entity Gaming.

“It’s about time that India became the #1 gaming nation. I grew up in an orthodox era where gaming was considered a waste of time, energy and effort. To see India rising to be a number 1 gaming nation is nothing short of a surprise to say the very least” added, Sudhanshu from The Fighting Game Community.

“In India, gaming is in a steady growth phase and it will still be a while before it becomes a rage for the whole nation. Nonetheless, the growth is what’s positive and I, as a gamer, couldn’t be happier with this. The exposure that the budding gamers are subjected to nowadays and will receive going forward is something that is very much needed as I know how tough it is to cut it without the aforementioned” said, Sabyasachi Bose from Optic Gaming India.

In a very short note but in an optimistic way, KJ Vignesh from Team LXG eSports Bangalore says, “This makes me very happy. I look forward to the growth of Esports in India.”

Significance of Gaming Bootcamp

“A gaming bootcamp is a place where a team stays together to practice. In other words, it’s a place where the entire team sits together and practices in order to enhance their skillset and at the same time it also creates a bonding between the teammates” says Bhavin Kotwani from Entity Gaming. “It is very important to get the right setup as it hampers your performance a lot. If you don’t have the correct setup you can’t perform to your complete potential. Yes, Brands sometimes do support us with the same, although the support can be much more, they are doing a great job in supporting us events wise.”

“A gaming boot-camp is held for players where they can brainstorm, devise strategies, get match up knowledge and experience while playing a few of their counter-parts. The setup is an integral part of the boot-camp coz it enables the player to get used to tournament pressure and the environment. Proving Grounds had the support of Zowie where they provided their high-end monitors for the tournament while Hyper X provided us with state of the art headsets so we would be focused while playing the game” commented Sudhanshu from The Fighting Game Community.

According to Sabyasachi Bose from Optic Gaming India, “A Gaming bootcamp is a place where all the members of a squad come together to discuss strategies, play out scenarios and strengthen their basics of the game, which in turn helps in building a great camaraderie. It is of utmost importance to provide the players with the adequate setup so as to ensure that they compete at their best possible level. Yes, I have been lucky to be part of teams that have support from premier brands like HyperX, Nvidia and others.”

“A gaming bootcamp is basically a gaming house where an Esports team practices and trains to be a better as a team .It is very important to get the specs right. The refresh rate and the fps matter. Yes, but the number of brands that support us are very few in number right now” concluded KJ Vignesh from Team LXG eSports Bangalore.

Downsides of Today’s Gaming Cafes

Gaming cafes are trending these days and coming up in all areas. This is the first and basic reach of all aspiring gamers. But these cafes need to do lot more to offer great gaming experience to gamers.  “Today many gaming cafes have high end rigs and setups so that is one thing they have worked on, but compared to the gaming cafes outside, there is a lot of difference. Outside gaming cafes are a one stop shop, everything from food to resting areas are available inside the cafes itself, there are sound proof booths to let teams practice in isolation, all of this is missing in India. Sound is the key issue in any gaming café in India that has to be solved by both the gamers and the café owners, apart from that all the above I mentioned can be implemented” added Bhavin Kotwani from Entity Gaming.

“I think the only thing missing in Gaming Cafe’s is the promotion of other genre of video games. I only see gamers playing FPS’s, MOBA which is saddening coz there are untapped games with huge potential present in the market. Boot-camps, different community meets, weekly tournaments to encourage new participation are few of the improvements” said Sudhanshu from The Fighting Game Community.

“Comparing the gaming cafes of nowadays to the ones of the yesteryears when I started playing, change is evident. Any customer now does not have to go with their own peripherals and gaming kit in order to play. However, there are some roads that need to traveled further. One such aspect I’d like to throw light on is security of the peripherals and the presence of CCTVs. I know CCTVs are already prevalent in majority of cafes, but there still are many fully functional gaming parlous without CCTVs, number of which cannot be simply ignored” commented Sabyasachi Bose from Optic Gaming India.

KJ Vignesh from Team LXG eSports Bangalore says, “There is not enough variety of games and most cafes in India are not well equipped with right gear for professional gaming.”

Brand’s Support for Gamers

Brand support is very crucial when it comes to the recognition of the gamers and spreading awareness about connecting new gamers. Gaming brands are very good at providing support to professional gamers as they encourage them to do well and they organize several gaming events for gamers and lots of such things to support them. “Yes, brands to sometimes help, but there is no monetary support till now. Brands help a lot in hosting events which indirectly helps us, but monetary support is something lacking and which would be of great help” said, Bhavin Kotwani from Entity Gaming.

“Off late I’ve seen quite a few brands showing interest in the genre of Fighting Games. HyperX, Zowie, Gigabyte, Red Bull are some of them that want us spread awareness and encourage new members to pick up the game. Resources are a key in getting good at a game. If the aforementioned brands provide adequate resources including sponsorship, it will not only boost the morale of the player, it will also boost his performance to do well at the game” added Sudhanshu from The Fighting Game Community.

“Brands coming in will always help the scene as financial backing, just like in any other walk of life, is extremely necessary. But I take it as an added advantage to improve reach. My primary focus has been to improve my gameplay and develop skills to one day compete globally” commented, Sabyasachi Bose from Optic Gaming India.

“Hardware support and also financial support which helps teams hire a support staff so that we as players can concentrate on getting better at the game alone” stated KJ Vignesh from Team LXG eSports Bangalore.

Advice for Well Being of Gamer’s Community

Professional gaming teams are not growing at a pace as they should grow. The support that should be provided by gaming brands is not enough, only sponsoring the gamers team is not that enough. “Except sponsoring I think the gaming brands should create awareness among the Indian parents. Most of the people still think gaming is gambling or wasting time, that mindset has to be changed and gaming brands can play a crucial role in that. This will help upcoming players to play the game freely and help more professional teams to come forward,” added Bhavin Kotwani from Entity Gaming.

“The Fighting Games genre in India was nearly non-existent a decade ago. Indian Gaming Carnival brought the best in the business when it came to Fighting Games. I personally didn’t even know there was a community called Indian FGC. Slowly and gradually over the last decade or so we’ve built a strong community that has quality players who are passionate about putting India on the map. It’s still a growing community and we’re hoping that by 2019, Capcom ends up noticing us to do CPT tournaments here. Gaming brands in India can support games that are still unexplored like Fighting Games for example. The global community has existed since the early 90’s but in India, it only came into existence post 2008. So, the brands should help upcoming community leaders make a name and mark for themselves and their game said,” Sudhanshu from The Fighting Game Community.

“Off the top of my head, Practice is the key. Workshops are a thing prevalent in almost every industry, but that practice is drab when it comes to gaming. In my view, workshops give budding gamers exposure and allows the newbies to meet with the already established pros. Learning from them and maybe even just talking to those vastly experienced players will motivate them to strive hard to be like them in the future,” stated Sabyasachi Bose from Optic Gaming India.

According to KJ Vignesh from Team LXG eSports Bangalore, “We should get access to global events through Indian qualifiers for some tournaments. We should also get all opportunity to learn new skills from a professional player/ coach.”

Boost Product Quality & Service Support 

“My advice to them in terms of Service would to be open more service centers (There are very few of them), provide a service where they can pick up the component needed to be exchanged/ repaired and drop it off again, for a certain cost. I also think they can improve in terms of pricing certain goods to target audience, because it should not be necessary to pay a premium to get the best quality goods, everyone cannot afford that,” stated Bhavin Kotwani from Entity Gaming.

“Not to compromise with the quality of the product. Be it a mouse pad or a headset, companies should strive to provide comfort without compromising on the quality aspect of it. Budget and Enthusiast gamers look for the eye candy appeal as well as performance of the product. They don’t mind paying extra if the overall feel of the product is superior. Having paid a premium, they expect premium service as well which at times is denied or leaves a bitter taste in ones mouth. Companies should really focus on after sales support bcoz a happy customer is a repeated customer and his word of mouth can either make it or break it for that brand,” added Sudhanshu from The Fighting Game Community.

“We gamers like things done fast and are used to speed. My only advice would be to establish a quicker flow of customer support. It takes a week or a fortnight to sometimes get the problems remedied despite the warranty, thereby bringing the entire process and flow to an abrupt and unwanted halt,” said Sabyasachi Bose from Optic Gaming India.

KJ Vignesh from Team LXG eSports Bangalore commented “I wish brands could educate the customer/gamer for making the right decision about their PC configuration based on their requirement. They should not look to just make quick profit by selling products only.”

Dream Machine for Gaming

Talking about the dream machine that he wants for playing heavy games, Bhavin Kotwani from Entity Gaming tells, “Well my dream gaming Machine would be any machine which would give me 500+ fps constantly with a 240hz Monitor with the cabinet having an Iron Man theme!”

“An i7 extreme edition processor with G Skill Trident RGB 128 Gb RAM, Asus Maximus Motherboard, Asus Xonar Sound Card, Samsung EVO 1Tb NVME drive with 10TB of additional storage provided by Western Digital or Seagate, custom water cooled by Swiftech, in a Cooler Master MasterCase with side panel made of tempered glass that can house 2 GTX 1080Ti’s in SLI. For peripherals, I’d like two 28″ Acer Predator XB1’s. Don’t really care about keyboards and mice. Any combo from CM or Corsair should be ideal. Not to mention, Hyper X Cloud II headset with a Logitech Z906 5.1 system,” added Sudhanshu from The Fighting Game Community.

“I want my dream machine to be a powerful beast to play any games that release even after 10 years. That would mean a 1080ti card with a DDR4 system and maybe subtle RGB lights and premium peripherals,” commented Sabyasachi Bose from Optic Gaming India.

HyperX Boosting the Professional Gamers Through its  Initiatives Towards Growth of Indian Gaming Market

Gaming is an Art of winning, studied by Science for improvements and supported by Commerce for stability. Even if this is a good looking statement, not many brands are able to implement what they understand from it. Away from the crowded marketing hype, HyperX has been the brand known for its high impact engagements with the gaming communities globally. The icing on the cake are their high quality gaming products that most professional eSports atheletes prefer.

Over the years, HyperX has grown to encompass multiple product lines including headsets, mechanical keyboards and high quality mice for gaming. From setting memory world records to achieving the most stringent product certifications, HyperX is still committed to delivering reliable products with the highest performance standards. Apart from producing exceptional hardware, the brand has taken conscious efforts to improve the eSports environment in India. What we know of is their 3 tier approach to Indian gaming, where they touch base with Gamers directly, help build Professional Platforms for them to compete on and help an array of Avenues (gaming cafes) for them Practice their skills. Such a dedicated approach definitely brings a smile to gamers as HyperX also runs campaigns to educate parents about the future in eSports. They motivate initiatives that lead to a better gaming culture in the country.

Indian gaming, like many have published already, may not be big enough to motivate business decisions. But it will be interesting to see how effective HyperX is with its plans with ecosystem brands to develop this under developed industry. They believe in the potential that this rapidly growing youngest economy has in store. Being one of the top gaming peripheral manufacturers in the country, the brand bolsters multiple projects and campaigns which are aimed at building a comprehensive ecosystem to facilitate growth of the gamers in India.

One of the key factors is impacting the growth of the gaming industry in India is support. This is a rare element that can be from brands and the community itself to motivate, to compete and to grow. Therefore, with an aim of integrating the fragmented communities, HyperX took conscious efforts and made focused investments to provide a direction to the potential that India has to offer. Since earlier investments were diverse, since 2014 they started building a strong gaming community in India by working with gaming cafes.

HyperX has been instrumental in popularizing competitive gaming in the country through its exclusive license partnerships with ESL and has played pivotal role in changing the E-sports gaming scenario in India. They are working with not just gaming brands but also the non-endemic brands to conduct various initiatives and improve the gaming culture in our country. HyperX takes immense pride in supporting emerging gamers and continue to empower gaming communities in every possible way. They believe that other endemic brands should also come forward and join hands in reinforcing the gaming culture in the country which will eventually help gaming industry to grow and sustain over a long time.
