Let’s meet professional gamer woman Julia “Bish” Robson. Robson is currently an Esports Correspondent for GINX Esports TV and a professional sponsored gamer from Johannesburg, South Africa. She is one of the leading esports personalities on the continent known for her charming, open and outgoing personality.
● When did you start playing video games (Do you remember the first game)?
I started playing when I was very young. It was a mutual hobby between my brother and I, which is why it became slightly more competitive. I do not remember my first game I ever played, but my first competitive game was Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (Cod4).
● How did you get into competitive gaming (esports)? Is being a professional gamer still your focus?
Yes it is still my focus. I started my competitive career when I was 15 at a monthly LAN in Cape Town. It opened my eyes to the online competitive scene, which introduced me to the COD4 Telkom Do Gaming League. I entered it with a team and we practiced and played everyday. Thereafter, I moved on to playing CSGO. In this game I started attending LAN events at which I competed with a mix-gendered team.
● How would you describe the gaming scene in South Africa? What are the positives & challenges
The gaming scene has increased ten fold over the last few years. With the success of competitive CS:GO, South Africa quickly followed in the international footsteps and currently we have 4 different leagues with large prize pools.
The positives: the esports community is very active and always growing. Businesses are getting more involved in growing the community.
Negatives: geographically our esports community struggles to compete with international teams as it requires far traveling. Teams cannot play in bigger international leagues due to high latency.
● Favorite(s) game of all time?
Cod4 promod and CSGO
● What activities do you enjoy to do outside of gaming?
I like fitness and I take it quite seriously. I also enjoy horse riding as I used to be a competitive Dressage rider.
● What are you currently working on?
I am currently working on building my personal brand, increasing my influence and gaining a bigger audience for my stream. There is a lot of esports events I would like to become a part of and I plan to become South Africa’s leading esports personality. I am also working on joining a new competitive esports team in which I can play at the highest competitive level in South Africa.
I hope to in a later stage, venture into doing these things globally.
