Hector Sheds Light on How to Become a BGMI Coach
Team SouL’s professional Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) player Sohail “Hector” Shaikh recently shed light on what it takes to become a BGMI coach. He emphasized that a coach must have a deep understanding of all four players on the team, including their strengths, weaknesses, and requirements for improvement. He also stated that Team SouL’s coach Amit “Amit” Dubey has a similar approach to coaching his team and added that if a person has these characteristics, the players themselves will reach out to them, given the scarcity of coaches in the industry.
Hector explains the requirements for being a coach
Despite the BGMI esports industry being active for almost the last five years, not all teams have a coach. The role of a coach is a crucial one and could be a gamechanger for a team, but not all teams require a coach, and some teams do just fine without them. However, one of the major challenges faced by the Indian BGMI esports industry is the scarcity of professional coaches.
In a recent livestream, a viewer asked Hector what it takes to become a BGMI coach. Responding to this, Hector stated that being a coach requires a significant amount of experience in the game and acknowledged that there are only a few coaches in the industry.
He explained that having a coach on the team is not just about having someone to show to the organization and the audience that the team has a coach. Instead, a coach needs to have a deep understanding of all four players on the team, including their individual strong and weak points and where the players need to work in order to improve their gameplay.
Following this, Hector stated that Team SouL’s coach Amit also has the same approach with the team and its players. He went on to express his belief that if someone can demonstrate this level of understanding of players and expertise in the game, then the players themselves ask the coach to join their organization and work with their team.
Although Hector specifically talked about being a BGMI coach, the same requirements go for all esports titles. Being a coach requires a high understanding of players and how they interact and behave while playing the game. The coach needs to understand where the players struggle and where they excel in order to optimize their potential to its fullest. Furthermore, it also requires extensive knowledge of the game they plan to coach.
