There are a lot of gamers out there. Some who are lazy and don’t really do anything. Some of them actually make a living off gaming (now that would be the dream), and a very few of them are really wealthy people who can buy all the games they want, but just don’t have enough time.
I was talking to a marketer the other day who markets in the medical field. Basically he helps plastic surgeons, brain surgeons, heart surgeons, etc. make more money. But anyway, there are also a small group of people who are extremely good at a really popular game and they make a bunch of money.
I came across a site called GGEazy and I was talking to the owner and he was telling me how he makes money by boosting people’s accounts in a game called league of legends. Now I play that game and I’m god awful at it. So what some people do, they’ll pay people like them to boost their account to high ranks so they can feel better about themselves. I thought that was fascinating and I asked him how much they charge and he couldn’t give me a straight answer. He says it depends on what rank they want and what rank they are currently. So on average its around 100 bucks. But there are some people who want the super high ranks so they’re paying about 300 bucks or more.
