【看CP學英文】電競市場日益蓬勃,其相關職業應運而生。越來越多職場新鮮人以及學生族群不想坐辦公室,轉而將「專業技能」運用在職場,在這樣的背景下,「陪玩師」成為許多年輕人夢寐以求的新興職業。

Amid the gaming industry’s soaring popularity, the job of “accompanying gamer” has become an emerging career for young graduates and students who believe that they deserve more than an office job for their unique skills.

除了陪客戶玩線上遊戲,加上額外費用,陪玩師還會用甜美的聲音哄玩家入睡、叫起床。

In addition to playing online games, accompanying gamers help players relax while practicing their skills and even lull them to sleep and wake up with the sound of their voice for an extra fee, if necessary.

陪玩師以時計價,價碼從150元到500元間,也有一次半日、包週、包月付費。這項新興職業收入來源除了時薪之外,還會加上客人不時送出的現金禮物。

The good news is that accompanying gamers are paid on an hourly basis, ranging from NT$150 to NT$500, with half-day, weekly and monthly rates available. In addition to their hourly wages, they can receive some occasional cash gifts from clients.

據報導,陪玩師兼職月入可達3-4萬,全職陪玩師月入10萬,電玩高手甚至最高達28萬元。

A part-time accompanying gamer can earn up to NT$30,000-40,000 a month, according to various sources, while a person in a full-time position can earn up to NT$100,000 a month. Video game experts can make up NT$280,000 per month. 

但若是要追求長期穩定收入來源還是要靠客人送禮,因此許多陪玩平台像是傾心陪玩、nicee陪玩,皆鼓勵陪玩師培養穩定客源,以鞏固收入。

The trick to obtaining a long-term, stable source of income is to encourage players to send gifts. To this end, Websites, such as 7cplay.com and Nicee.tw, to name just a few, encourage accompanying gamers to build a “stable customer base.”

陪玩師工作內容包山包海,除了與客人視訊聊天、幫忙打怪練等,有時還必須唱歌給客人聽、叫客戶起床。

In addition to video chatting with their clients and helping them win, some accompanying gamers also sing to players and help them wake up.

不論是兼職賺外快,或是全職都能賺到相當可觀的薪水,吸引不少年輕族群投入陪玩師行列。根據TVBS報導,業者表示,陪玩平台去年底會員才1萬多人,現在已經暴增5倍,達到7萬人。

With such a potentially high income, there is little wonder that an increasing number of young people have become accompanying gamers, whether part-time or full-time.

The owner of 7cplay.com was quoted by Chinese media as saying that the online platform already has 70,000 members, compared to 10,000 members at the end of last year.
