Online gaming can be very competitive and with that comes the need to look better as player. To look better, your online game will need a rank or rating. For example, Dota, Overwatch, Combat Arms, and League of Legends as well as many other games all have matches that are played competitively. In those matches, you are required to calibrate to have a ranking. Online booster are players on these games that are simply brilliant at the game and they get paid to play on your account and improve your rating.
To become an online booster, you will need to be one of the top ranked players in the game. You too can become an online booster if you are in say the top 10% in the world.
A good example of this is players in a game like Dota that are rated around 6,000 MMR or above. There are not many players on the game that have a rating so high. This may not sound like a lot compared to many of the pro players that are ranked 9,000 MMR and above, but 6,000 MMR is pretty high up there.
In fact, most websites that hire boosters for Dota require that their booster be at least 4,500 MMR or above. Most players at 4,500 are able to play games 3,000 MMR or below and dominate. Any higher than this, and a booster of around 5,000 MMR or above will be required.
A booster boosting in a 2,000 MMR game will generally not the help of any of his team mates. He will simply just go and wreck the other team on his own. The other player will not know that this player is boosting, which is the beauty of it. It just looks as if this 2,000 MMR ranked player is far better than anyone else with the hero he/she is playing.
How much will I get paid as a booster?
Don’t believe that you will get rich from boosting because this is actually a competitive marketplace. You will probably take around 25 minutes to 30 minutes to complete a game; sometime more. This is including the time waiting to connect to a game and going through the draft phase of the game.
Most boosters are paid $5 per game, and some $7. It really depends on the website that hires the booster. As competition between websites that sell booster services, the rate they charge is always being undercut, which in turn affects the amount a booster is paid. A good booster can earn between $8 and $15 an hour.
If you are a booster, the way you have to look at is that you are being paid to play a game that you enjoy. If you can boost 8 games a day, you are looking at around $40 to $50 a day, which is not a salary that is going to get you rich in the long run. Where the money is, is if you can persuade the person that paid for the boosting to take on weekly coaching lessons.
