Henrik has many years of experience in the professional scene. His main advice is to prioritize your schedule and work on knowing how and when to peak. There are many different aspects of the game, but Henrik emphasizes the importance of mental preparation, knowing what your team will do in the Pick and Ban section of a game, knowing your opponent’s playstyle, and in general do everything you can in order to increase your chances of winning. Once you have control over these things, there is not really much you need to be concerned about. There will always be obstacles at offline tournaments, such as below optimal conditions, which you can’t control. Henrik talks about certain rituals you can do in order to feel as comfortable as possible. It’s all about making the best of the situation you are in, knowing when to eat, sleep and relax prior to a game. These things may seem trivial at first, but remember that they can have a substantial influence on your performance. Remember that playing League of Legends is just one part of being a professional. Another important aspect is to keep improving and learn from the very best players in the game, as well as make sure that you are healthy so you can perform at your top level.
