Your project Hitpoint.cz has been founded almost seven years ago and belongs among the best gaming tournament organizers in the Czech Republic. How would you describe it to someone, who doesn’t know it? What was your motivation to start this website?
I have created Hitpoint.cz after finishing studying at the ITC Faculty at the Masaryk University in Brno. During that period I have been deciding, if I should put my life`s passion for competing in PC games into practice or throw myself into the arms of the system as an employee. Luckily the enthusiasm won and I`m extremely glad that I had dropped into it. Since my childhood I was a great enthusiast for the PC and gaming and as a true oldschooler I started playing Solitaire and Minesweeper at my mom’s work. I spent High School playing Ultima Online on Dark Paradise server. After embarking on university I fell for Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, thanks to which I learned about the atmosphere of clan wars and for the first time, I saw the commented match. It impressed me so much that I decided that this is exactly what I wanted to do. I started as a community commentator, worked hard on myself and gradually developed radio focused on commented matches in PC games. Eventually, I got in touch with local gaming community, the best players and teams. Together with a bunch of friends, we began to focus on creating news until we decided to create our own organization Hitpoint. We were lucky that we got ASUS as a partner, which enabled us to go ahead full speed and together we started to work on building the best domestic league. Our goal from the beginning was to move gaming from the anonymous environment of the Internet in particular presentable form and organize professional events that would introduce this starting phenomenon to the general public. I think that over the years, we have succeeded. Now, thanks to it`s huge interest in the world, where stadiums are filled with fans and millions of viewers are watching, it is not necessary to introduce the electronic sports. It is not coincidence that eSports can be now compared to extreme sports and their history of punk community events emerged into the limelight of mainstream. Therefore, we can now concentrate on organizing events and the best media outputs of our professional contests and broadcasting the biggest international events in the world. The biggest success came since we started organizing events for fans and audience. Other organisations were focused on players only and didn’t have any real audience. Many people tried to tell me that it has no future and won’t be successful, however after we sold out our first event at the cinema in Brno, I knew, it was the right path.
