SHROUD BELIEVES ESPORTS PROS COULD COMPETE UNTIL THEY’RE 50 YEARS OLD
AT WHAT AGE DO YOU RETIRE?
One of the most common areas that receives a lot of discussion within the esports industry is the ideal retirement age.
While many pros will argue that younger players have faster reaction times, shroud believes that older esports pros can still maintain a successful career.
When asked what age shroud believes esports pros can play competitively at, he responded with a surprising answer.
Maybe 50 is your max. I truly believe that, if you were starting early, say 16/17 playing professionally and you played professionally until you were 50, you’re still going to be playing at a high level.
While an athlete’s reactions may naturally slow, shroud believes that dedication and hard work can still persevere.
Yeah sure, you could lose some reaction time but I’m telling you, you will still be at that high level if you have that same passion, drive, and motivation to improve. You’ll still get there, you’ll still have it.
Of course, the retirement age differs from player to player, but shroud believes dedication can go a long way.
