1) Buy a beast.

The first and foremost thing to do its to buy a machine, with which you can play. You can compete with:
  • A PC
  • Play Station 4
  • PlayStation 3 
  • play Station Vita
  • Xbox 360
  • Xbox One
  • Nintendo Wii U
  • Nintendo DS
  • Mobile

If you are not very rich or solely dedicated to gaming then I say that you should go with a decent PC and not spend lot of money on the machine because……..

2) You have to get a game.

Now there is a huge list for this. Some games are:
  • PC – Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Call of Duty Ghosts, League of Legends, Team Fortress 2, Titanfall and Starcraft 2.
  • Play Station 4 – Call of Duty Ghosts, Fifa 14, Madden 25, NBA 2K14 and NBA live 14.
  • Xbox 360 – Call of Duty Ghosts, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Call of Duty Black Ops, Call of Duty MW3, GTA V, Halo 4 and NBA 2K14.

3) Get noticed.

Right now there are +900K players, 19M teams, who have won over 1M USD! Now you have to make your space. Get out there, now you have your machine and your game, make an account, choose your machine and game. Now play matches to earn badges, achievements, trophies and even cash. But wait! You are still not a pro. If you are good, slowly people will start recognizing you.

Now you have to play in a team. Find team members with equal or higher skills than you. The best way to make a team is be active on the forums or people will easily take you in a team if you get featured on the leaderboard.

5) The second last big step.

Now you have to take part in Online Tournaments. You have to practice and play, with your team. Be active, if you suddenly leave it for 2 to 3 days it will destroy your reputation as a pro gamer. Challenge the people better than you, beat them and move up. And yes, keep an eye on the people on the leaderboard.
As your team becomes better and better by beating the best your will see your self rising on Major League Gaming ‘s dynamic online-ranking system and you will get the eye on the best players.

6) Get ready for the Pro circuit.

Find a seasonal event on the official website, you will get all the deatails. Go to the city where it is taking place. Your performance at live events is more important than online tournaments. Obey the rules. And if you beat the people here, buddy welcome the the pro gamers community. 

I know it sounds easy, just 6 simple steps, right? WRONG! By the time you reach a live event you would have probably spent about a thousand hours in front of your PC playing Hoola-Lala. And yes the money which you will earn will not be enough to pay the bill of you Cuba or Red Bull cans that you have drunk so far.
Still you can earn some money by playing normal matches :).
