Let’s discuss how Optic H3cz star his gaming career, how it helps him to build his asset.
The Journey of Optic Hecz
We’ve been familiar with the word gaming for the past 50 years. The first home-based game in the history of the world was invented in the 1970s. At that time gaming was mainly computer-based.
Gaming is a huge field of entertainment for the youth. One types of people spend a lot of time in gaming. Not only time but also they spend a lot of money on gaming for sure. Cause, the addiction to playing video games has crept into people’s life.
It is really difficult to get out of from this strong addiction of games. New things are constantly being brought here. The created different types of features to attract people. And our generation accepts these with great interest and enthusiasm.
Have u ever wondered how much money we spend on the game? How much money a game company earn throughout the whole year? What is the amount of this transaction? Well, in 2017, a survey found that only in America people spend about 36 billion dollars on the games per year.
Undoubtedly, it is a huge amount of money. Do you ever think that is it foolishness to spend a huge amount of money on games? The answer could be yes and no both. Besides, there is not any fault in playing games, right? Many people’s are addicted to marijuana and drinking at least gamer are not like them.
At some point in our life, many of us think that playing games mean wasting time, spending valuable time just sitting down. It’s like, just wasting important time sitting in front of a computer or gaming device without doing anything good to anyone either yourself.
But even though many people think so, it is true for our generation that most of us spend a large part of our childhood just playing games. All the speculation and imagination was surrounding with the games and without any doubt, it is like the easiest and safest way of entertainment.
Most people have the misconception that by playing games it is impossible to earn a livelihood. We are so accustomed to living a certain life with so many obstacles that we can’t believe that someone is actually able to do something by playing video games.
But by playing games anyone can do a lot now. Anyone can take gaming as his profession if he wants to. Like ten other fields of livelihood, it is also an honourable way to earn money.
The field of gaming is huge. But because of its young age, it has not yet gained acceptance as a profession to everyone eyes.
However, the name Hector Rodriguez is one of those who have been established himself by choosing a gaming life profession for him and ignoring the eyes of this society. And he did what he really loved to do.
Optic Hecz was born on February 9, 1980, in the Texas, United States of America. He did not reveal any information about his childhood. What was his family like, how he spends his childhood, was he raised in a poor economic family or in a wealthy family? Well, to be honest, there is not much information.
We don’t know who was Rodriguez father and mother was or what was their occupation. All is we know about Rodriguez is he had a brother named Pedro Rodriguez who is also the co-founder of Optic gaming and his brothers business partner. Rodriguez may be raised in Texas but he does not look like American. His face says, his family must be from a different origin. All the information we gather from his Tweeter and Instagram page.
Rodriguez main career and source of income was coming from Optic Gaming organisations. Optic gaming organisation was founded in 2006. Though the mastermind behind this group was not Rodriguez. He took the control of this organisation in 2007 as a CEO. By his command optic gaming became of the most popular team.
Rodriguez wins many esports tournaments with his crew. Optic Gaming was won the very first Call of Duty tournament. And the next two following years they were in 3rd position.
When Rodriguez was the CEO of optic gaming, they decided to live in the same house with all the members.
They used held many tournaments in that house. Just imagine a lot of guys playing video games in a house, how it would be?
Well once an interviewer asked him:-
“You have a bunch of young guys who are playing an insane amount of Call of Duty living in one house. How do u manage the different personalities on the team or conflict that might arise?”
He said “Part of the job is making sure that everybody in the house gets along. Competitive players are driven by competition and that has a lot to do with their personality and, at times, their ego. Everybody wants to be the best. That’s what makes a good competitive person. When you’re in a house with four competitive players everything is a competition. We just invited a former professional Halo player to move into the house because he’s really knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition. Everything to him is a competition – who drinks their nutrition shake or their food shakes quicker, etc. There’s always going to be a clash [about] who’s the best or who’s more popular or who does what the best. I’ve always been a very respectful person, so I’ve done a very good job at respecting the way people are.”
