We delve inside one of the region's most successful names in esports, the LG Dire Wolves. And find out just how much passion and dicipline goes into building a successful esports team.


Like with any professional sport, training for esports requires discipline and focus. For League of Legends, this means day-to-day structure and planning. “Our days revolve around two major scrim blocks a day,” Dire Wolves coach, Curtis Morgan tells me. “A scrim is an organised game of practise against other teams within the league. Each block consists of three games with a break in-between the blocks. Outside these two scrim blocks we have pregame and post-game processes to make sure that we make the most of the learning from the games that we play. For the rest of the day the team generally play personal solo queue. So, they can refine their skills on a micro level.”

This happens every day of training. And a typical day for a member of the Dire Wolves looks a little like this. Wake up, get in some physical training at the gym, have breakfast, and then meet up with other players and coach for a pregame meeting before heading into the first block of in-game practise. Which itself can last up to three hours. Add in another round of meetings, block of practise as a group, and you get the picture that life inside an esports training facility or gaming house is a lot more than just time spent playing games.
