Welcome team “Deceptive Cadence [V-VI]". You were the surprise team in the top 16 of the World Desert Championship, beating Dark Side (with Bl4ck, Lucky_Rox, Sebastian2002, Biry, Pela and Carbo) and PL (with Dziamdziak, JackK, Barles and Zastosy) in the qualifiers, before losing against Infinite Afterpets in the Ro16, but even taking 2 games from them.
Today we will talk a bit about your tournament experience and yourself both as players and privately.
1st part: Introduction
2nd part: WDC:
Kingcat: I uploaded all of our matches against DarkSide, PL and Infinite Afterpets to my Youtube channel, so if you want to check out the games from my pocket point of view with our voice-comms, feel free to watch them here:
3rd part: More AoE-related questions and outro:
Today we will talk a bit about your tournament experience and yourself both as players and privately.
1st part: Introduction
|Let’s first introduce yourself shortly. Who are you? How old are you and what do you usually do when you are not playing AoE II?||My name is Christoph, I’m 27 years old and I’m currently in my last year of medical school. Outside of AoE II, I enjoy playing football and running, playing the piano and listening to classical music and playing board games with my family and friends.||My name is Thorsten and I am 30 years old. I work as a manager in a small family business - we are producing fine ham. |
I have been playing a lot of chess since I was 14 years old, making it to roughly 2100 Fide ELO Rating. The other big hobby in my life is watching Wrestling, mostly WWE and AEW.
|I’m Marcus, I’m 31 years old and I work as a trumpet instrumentalist in the United States Navy. I enjoy running, listening to classical music, teaching, and being with my fiancee, Gaby. |
||(Kingcat’s ham business and chess trophies)|
|What does your username mean and why did you choose it?||I used to play a game called Anno 1404, Dawn of Discovery which is an economic simulation game. The standard player name was ANNOnymous. I liked the word play and added the second half of my first name to Anno, becoming Annotoph.||When I was like 6 years old the words “King” and “Cat” were some of the very few English words I knew of at that time. I randomly combined them into Kingcat when I was in need of an account name and “Thorsten” was already taken.|
The S3 is a pre-tag stemming from the game The Settlers III which I used to play a lot between 2004 and 2010.
So if you see me in Twitch chat, please do not call me Sekingcat, but Kingcat :D.
|I’m a big fan of the book “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card. In this book, “Locke” is a nickname with which one of the characters disguises who he is while online, so my name is a tribute to that idea.|
|What does your team name mean and why did you choose it? How did you form your team?||Deceptive Cadence is a musical term that describes a chord progression from the dominant (5th chord of a scale=V) to the submediant (6th chord of a scale=VI). Usually, a dominant chord progresses to tonic (I), which creates a feeling of “coming home”, making the listener feel comfortable. Deceptive cadences make the listener feel uneasy and very unexpected. We chose the team name because we are all linked to music (except Kingcat) in some way outside AoE. A deceptive cadence is something you mostly don’t expect and likewise since no one really knew us going into this tournament, we weren’t expected to get far.|
Kingcat, LemonJack and I met back on Voobly in a random team game. We kept playing as a team ever since and met Locke last year on DE. While playing ranked team games together, we noticed having a similar mindset and approach to improving. After being fairly successful on the team game ladder, we wanted to see how we could perform against the well-known players of AoE II, so we formed a team and signed up for WDC.
|Let me just say this: I am not a musician and I have no clue up to this day what our team name means, haha.|
In 2017 I randomly met LemonJack and Annotoph in a TG lobby. We played some games and I put them on my Voobly watch list and spectated their games from time to time. Eventually this thing went from stalking to talking, haha.
We started to play a lot of TGs together as 3, then LemonJack became inactive for a while. Annotoph and I started playing 2v2 Arabia from then on. In the last few months of Voobly, we started to play Arena with our mate WonderHD and his friends a lot, which allowed us to close one of our biggest gaps, which was playing closed and boomy maps.
With the start of DE, we started playing 4v4s again and also played a lot more maps than just Arabia. We improved a lot over the following year.
At some point WonderHD asked us to play a showmatch against some of his American friends from the UNUR team. Locke was part of their group. Eventually we started playing ranked games together. Annotoph noticed that he and Locke had a similar mind towards the game, so it was a done deal. It took him more time to convince me to take part in the team because I had big doubts about being good enough for this tournament. Eventually I gave in, buckled up and started to embrace the ride ahead of us.
|See Annotoph’s answer!|
As far as becoming a team, I first remember running into Annotoph in a Hill Fort game in Fall 2020. I was doing the usual Burmese Double Castle clownery and saw they had Berbers as a counter pick to the strategy. Usually, the Berber player doesn’t commit as much to the defense and it can actually go well for Burmese, so I wasn’t overly worried. I went and raided like usual, but noticed he had a lot of Camel Archers with Ballistics and was giving me some trouble.
Then, he hit Imp, and way too fast, like 25 minutes. We realized it was a sling and went to try to kill the slinger player (it was actually a double sling), but it didn’t matter, as our whole team died to Elite Camel Archers with *surprise* Indian bonus! He was even mowing down castles with only Camel Archers! We were impressed.
After that game, I ended up connecting with Annotoph, Kingcat, and LemonJack through lobby games and eventually ladder games. In early 2021, we had a lot of success on the TG ladder and discussed and executed strategies and roles while playing team games, which was something I naturally gravitated to. When WDC came along, we decided to give it a shot.
|Since when do you play AoE II?||I played AoE II for the first time when I was around 6 years old. I played the campaigns and single player games for some time. In 2014 I rediscovered it when a friend sent me the HD version as a birthday present. However, it took another 3 or so years until I started playing online regularly and with the release of DE, I started improving a lot.||I had my first contact with AoE II when I was about 10 years old. My older brother played the game for a bit and I liked it as well, but I fell in love with The Settlers III instead. I played a lot of Starcraft II between 2010-2014 but got sick of it because I hated Protoss with a passion. After a 2 year trip to League of Legends I wanted to play an RTS again, but Starcraft 2 felt dead to me. I randomly stumbled upon AoE II during that time and was delighted to play it on HD again in 2016, reviving all those fond memories from my childhood. Few months later I started playing on Voobly.||I started playing AoE II in 2002 on MSN Zone. I was a little kid and I had no idea what I was doing. I rediscovered the game in 2008 when I started playing on Gameranger on Macintosh, and from there I moved to HD, Voobly, and eventually to DE, where I improved drastically.|
|Have you played AoE I/III? What are your hopes for AoE IV?||I played both AoE I and III as a kid, but was always more interested in the medieval theme of AoE II. Concerning AoE IV, I’m very much looking forward to it and hope that it will lead to more good RTS games in the future.||No, I haven't played any of them. I will definitely have a look into AoE IV. Coming from my Starcraft II background I am very excited how Microsoft will design the game for this ‘modern’ era of RTS games.||I played AoE I as a little kid. I was mesmerized by it. As far as AoE IV, I hope the game is a quality product and something that brings some fresh ideas to the series.|
|Did you (either in a team or in 1v1) participate in any other tournament before?||I participated in the Snowfort Masters 4v4 Arabia Tournament by TrouT.||No, WDC was my first AoE II tournament.||I entered in a few of the USA Cups and was a bench player for USA C in the 2v2 World Cup. I was on the team Tuna’s Wet Market (with Big Tuna, Rooster, soccersmed, Meliodas, Annotoph, LemonJack, and silverstar) for Snowfort Masters as well, where we won the Middleweight bracket.|
|Which country/city do you come from? Where would you like to live?||I grew up in a small town near Hamburg, Germany and moved to Hamburg for my studies. I really like Hamburg as a place to live but I wouldn’t mind moving to a smaller city in the future.||I am living in a small town 60 km east of Dortmund, Germany. Due to my family business I am also kind of committed to staying here.||I’m from New Mexico in the United States. I really like where I live in Maryland.|
|What is your favorite...|
|food/drink?||Bun Ga Nuong/ Blackcurrant juice mixed with sparkling water.||Streusel Cake and sparkling water.||Rare steak/peach tea.|
|animal?||Lemur.||Dog.||My cat, Tomas.|
|place?||A sauna.||My home.||New Mexico.|
|movie/actor/book?||Movie: North by Northwest and Roman Holiday.|
Actress: Audrey Hepburn.
Book: The Lord of the Rings.
|I am a big Wrestling fan, which you could consider as movie/actors. My favourite match is Johnny Gargano vs Tomassio Ciampa, NXT TakeOver Chicago II, 2018 |
For Books: Harry Potter.
|Movie: The Princess Bride.|
Actor: Don’t really have one.
Book: Ender’s Game.
|musician/song?||Beethoven/ “Pavane pour une infante défunte” by Maurice Ravel.||Since my childhood I have been a big fan of the German radio play “Die Drei ???”. My favourite episode is 169 - ”Die Spur des Spielers”.||Sergei Rachmaninoff and his Piano Concerto No. 2.|
|What can you cook well yourself and how often do you cook it?||Spaghetti Carbonara, once every 1-2 weeks.||A leek & cheese soup, haven’t done it for a while now though.||My fiancee is the one who does the cooking (I’m lucky)!|
|What would you put on top of a pizza?||Mozzarella, ham, rucola, and parmesan.||Cheese, tuna and onions, the classic Pizza Tonno. |
I also engage in spicy pizza eating contests with some friends from time to time, so give me all those chillies, jalapenos and watch me die inside, haha.
|Pepperoni, sausage, onions, mushrooms, peppers, green chili.|
|Do you have a favourite sports team/athlete?||Football. I used to play a lot but I don’t follow any team anymore.||I follow a lot of different esports, mainly League of Legends, where TSM, G2 and SKT are my favourite teams.|
I also love watching Serral, Reynor and Clem tearing down the current Starcraft II scene.
My Grandpa converted me into a fan of the Bayern Munich football team, but I don't follow them much nowadays.
|The Dallas Cowboys, and I don’t really have a favorite athlete.|
|Which languages can you speak and which would you like to learn?||I speak German and English fluently and can understand French and a little bit of Spanish. I would like to learn Russian.||I speak German and English. I would love to understand French, because I watch the stream of Sitaux a lot.||English and the tiniest bit of Spanish.|
|Which countries have you visited and where would you like to go? Why?||I used to travel a lot with my family when I was a kid. USA, Canada, South Africa and various European countries. I also lived in Adelaide, Australia for 10 months during high school which was an amazing experience. I’ve sadly lost my accent since then. I would very much like to visit South East Asia, because the photos I’ve seen look amazing and I find the cultural diversity interesting.||I haven’t traveled much in my life outside of Germany, I barely set foot in every neighbouring country by now.|
I would love to visit Seoul one day. I followed a lot of Starcraft II esports from 2010-2015 and really like Korean food.
|I’ve been to Mexico for a trumpet workshop, but would like to visit the area where my fiancee is originally from (Guadalajara). I’d also like to visit Europe.|
2nd part: WDC:
|When you signed up, where did you expect to end?||Since we don’t play many 1v1s, our team rating and seed was fairly low, so I didn’t expect us to qualify for the main event. However, I did believe that with good preparation we could get a few games here and there and maybe get past round 1.||To be honest, I expected us to drop out of the qualifier immediately. But we also noticed that a lot of the signed up teams consisted of pure 1v1 players, so we saw our chances to overcome all those higher rated 1v1 players with better preparation, coordination and teamplay.||I expected to be well prepared on the maps and as a team, and from competitions I’ve entered as a musician, the more you can prepare for your performance and control all the elements, the better the results will be. I just wanted us to have a shot in each of these sets and go from there.|
|What was the best experience in the tournament for you?||First of all, simply being able to play in a big tournament with all the great players that I watch and cheer for so frequently. But also seeing the step by step improvement of our team and being able to share the success with my great team mates.||On our first day of team practise we faced RoR and got utterly clapped into another dimension by them, none of the games were any close. I was physically unable to play the game because my body was completely shaking and my mind was not working. How bad would it be in a tournament game if practise is already this bad?|
In the next few days I did some research on breathing techniques to be able to calm myself down in these situations. Our practise sessions immediately got better and I managed to stay calm in our first game of the tournament vs. DS, when I had a horrendously bad Dark Age. It developed into a completely crazy game from start to finish. After that one I never had any more issues with nerves for the rest of the tournament. Overcoming my anxieties to be able to perform in the matches felt very good.
On the wholesome side of things: While playing our match vs. Infinite Afterpets, BL4CK, whose team we beat in Round 1 of the qualifier, was telling everyone in Nicov’s Twitch chat about who we are and hyping us up as a legit threat to Infinite Afterpets. That was a very classy move from him and it cheered me up a lot after the series ended, thanks again .
|Getting to play practice games against amazing players and grow and learn as a team. A big improvement for us came in our mindset in approaching the games - I think all of us were shaking from nerves in our first game against DS, but when we faced Infinite Afterpets everyone was really calm.|
One of my favorite byproducts of the tournament was the trust we developed as a team.
There were times in our practice games where we got completely destroyed and it felt like we didn’t belong - a bunch of unknown players taking on AoE’s big names! Despite these rocky moments, we took a deep breath between games and continued to play and learn for the rest of the set before going over the gory details at the end. Over time, we really refined how we wanted to approach team games and examined what really separates teams at the highest level.
For us I think it really comes down to trust. Everyone commits to their role, brings in a refined product, and then as the game develops we respond to the more chaotic moments as a team, not simply individual players.
|Which was your favourite map?||Thar Desert.||Jalapao.||Karoo.|
|How much did you watch of the other matches? Which was your favourite game/match that you watched?||I think we actually watched almost every single game of both qualifiers and main event with our team as part of the preparation process. We learned so much by analysing what approach other teams had for all the new maps.||We pretty much watched almost every single game to get a feeling for what people like to do on each and every map. We discussed every strategy approach we saw from other teams in order to determine if we should play it ourselves or how we should react to it if we happen to play against it.|
My favourite games to watch were game 3 and 5 in the WWP vs RoR Series - also known as the unofficial Thar Desert Championship, because they had the map 2 times in the 1v1s as well, haha.
We practised a lot with RoR, so we were rooting heavily for them.
In game 3, RoR had a huge lead in the midgame but couldn’t quite hit the finishing blow. WWP barely held on, stalled out the game and eventually wrestled back control, turning the game around to lead the series with 2-1.
In game 5, both teams met again on Thar Desert. This time though RoR learned from their mistakes of game 3 and kept their foot on the gas and didn’t let WWP get off the hook again. Great series!
|I think we watched every game, or nearly every one, whether it was live or just the recordings. We wanted to see what strategies worked and what other teams were doing to gain advantages on these more open and challenging maps.|
One of my favorite games from the qualifiers was between Greedy Dragons and CZ team on Mount Bromo. Greedy Dragons had the lead for the entirety of the game until Imperial Age, and seemed like they had solved the game. However, the CZ team made a strong push to control the center of the map and eventually took all the gold for themselves. Greedy Dragons ended up resigning with a team score lead of over 1000 points.
|How much did you prepare the maps and civilisation pools?||A lot! We usually took a first look at the maps together and then brainstormed about how we would want to approach each map. After we had an initial idea, we would work on our individual builds and ideas and practice them. Finally, we would play the maps with our practice partners and rewatch the matches afterwards to see what they did and how we could improve.||Everyone of us prepared a lot and played hundreds of single player games to get smoothly through the early game on every map with every civ. There were a few maps which needed a lot of extra practice due to their special starts, like Taklamakan, Umm al Samim, Simpson Desert, Arctic Circle or Red Sand. Most of our time went into those maps, while the other maps felt kind of standard for the classic land- or hybrid maps.|
Our civ choices for the map pack games were set pretty fast, but with the inclusion of 3 water maps in the Main Event, we dropped Chinese in favor of Vikings last second.
Looking at the fixed civ pools for every map, the choices felt pretty easy to make.
My only regret is our preparation for Ounianga. We did not expect Byzantines pocket from Nicov and I adapted poorly to this new situation with my Franks pocket.
I am also a bit sad that we didn’t get to play Pag, because we had an insane strategy prepared.
|I practiced the maps and civilizations I was going to play constantly. I wrote down exactly what we were going to do as a team, what my strategy was for my position, and what I thought our win conditions could be in given games and how I could help achieve them. From there, I practiced build orders against the AI and worked to play my role in the team as best as possible. |
|That sounds like much more than I expected and I would not be surprised if you were the team who practised the maps more than any other team.|
So for a next edition, I definitely know that I can contact you for some feedback of the maps too.
It would also have been great to see some of your practice games on stream. In the past many big teams streamed their POV practice games on new maps, but with so many tournaments going on at the same time, most top teams’ practice was limited and not public. So I never saw the 8 map pack v2 maps played on the highest level before the Ro16, and seeing them played before could have added a bit hype to the tournament.
I also wonder, are you still playing any of the maps now in lobby games after your last tournament match?
|Streaming practice matches is of course always a bit risky because your next opponents can analyze it and think about possible counters but I like the idea of a few more show matches with small prize pools as more people will be aware of the upcoming tournament and maybe already start following the qualifiers which provided some very good sets.|
Besides some practice games with friends for their respective WDC matches, I sadly didn’t play any of the maps anymore. I think the problem is that the vast majority of high level TGs are played in the ranked mode (maybe except the BF community and very top level) and ranked games are limited to the map pool which never includes tournament maps. It would be great to always have a few maps from tournaments in the map pool during the time of the event so that everyone can see and play the maps in advance.
|I played a couple of practise games with USA F for their Sand League matches.|
I think having more small show matches like Chile vs Brazil could be an interesting idea for the next WDC edition. I am pretty sure that a lot of the ‘smaller’ teams from the Qualifier would have taken the opportunity to play some games, get streaming exposure and maybe get some money (50-100$ per showmatch, not as big as the Chile vs Brazil one).
You could tell that some of the smaller teams were a lot more prepared than the big name teams in this tournament, as their players are mostly focused on 1v1 and streaming. So smaller teams will probably bring a lot more depth and strategic variety to the maps because they can take the time to prepare specific stuff. This is why the pros all reverted to Atacama in their 1v1s and the highly prepared players went for maps like Taklamakan or Umm al Samim.
Cap this series of show matches off with a match between GL.A and Tempo before the Qualifiers start to get a lot of twitch viewers aware of the tournament.
|I did play some lobby games after we finished our portion of the tournament to help USA F prepare for their matches in the Sand League. I think most of them were on Pamir Mountains to try to figure out the best civ and strategy combinations.|
Although I didn’t practice in any games with Inc’s Alarm Clocks, I did talk maps and strategies with them before their games with PL in the finals of the Sand League. They played a great final, especially Game 5 on Thar Desert.
|[Question by DC:] Which one of your games was the most memorable one of the WDCfor you?||I will have to go with the 1v1 vs. Capoch on Painted Desert. As we said before, we didn’t expect to win any 1v1 due to the lack of experience which is also why we didn’t prepare anything for them. Going into the 1v1s leading 1-0 at that point, I was ready to lose quickly and was already thinking about the next 3v3 game. After taking the score lead in late Feudal Age, I actually started believing that I could win. I obviously didn’t do much more than hitting the Eagle Warrior button, however it was still a great moment for me to win against such a great player of AoE 2 in a major tournament!||Our game 1 win vs. Infinite Afterpets on Sonora felt really good. Our game plan worked out to a tee and we created a clean snowball starting from pressuring Capoch in Feudal Age and transitioning that Advantage we got through the Ages and not offering them any chances to come back into the game.|
The most memorable game for me though was our game 3 win vs. PL on Mount Bromo. In that game we managed to come back after Locke had to run all his villagers in early Castle Age. After that Annotoph and I had a string of perfect engagements, which gave us the army lead. Suddenly we were able to secure the middle and raid the ecos of every player from PL, forcing them to tap out of the game eventually. This was a huge turning point in the match as they just handily beat us 2:0 in the 1v1 stage.
|Game 3 against PL on Mount Bromo (a Gold Rush clone), aka the “Stone Shaft Mining Game”. Basically, we took a horrible fight in the Feudal Age and lost all of our armies, which led to me being destroyed by Barles. From that point, I realized that I would be useless if I tried to make an army, so I thought the only way I could contribute was by making defenses for Kingcat’s base first and then making castles in the middle of the map to defend all of the gold. I immediately sent the majority of my economy to stone, and even researched stone mining and eventually stone shaft mining! Once Annotoph and Kingcat began raiding Dziamdziak as pocket after cleaning PL’s armies in late Castle Age, I sent all of my villagers to the middle to make castles and deny PL gold. I finished the game with maybe 40 villagers and was completely stuck in Castle Age, but with 4 castles making a beautiful checkmate in the middle of the map.|
|Did you look at the map creation contest entries? If yes, was there any map which was not chosen for the main event which you would have liked to play?||No, sadly I completely missed it!||I had no idea about it until after the tournament finished. ||I did not.|
|Maybe you can still check them out. You can see them here: Random Map Contest (aoe2map.net)||It’s great to see how much effort the map scripters put into designing tournament themed maps! I also liked the concept of different community members giving feedback.|
I would have liked to play Pampa del Tamarugal. Although I do believe that the amount of fish may need some tweaking, I like the idea of migrating to the north east in order to gain access to more resources as the game goes on.
|I would have loved to have the map “Greenland” by Miaou in the mappool. It would have made for very interesting strategic decisions as you have to decide whether you want to focus on water for the fish or the middle for the gold.|
|If there was a second edition, which desert would you like to be represented?||I think we had a good representation of the world deserts and with it a cool map diversity.||Frankly, I don’t know many of our world’s deserts. I enjoyed watching the map introduction videos to learn a few things about them.||There is a place in New Mexico called White Sands - it’s a natural wonder made up of gypsum sand which makes the landscape a sparkling white.|
Maybe you will learn even more until next time. (I hope there will be a next time. And then there should be more time for preparation and promotion too.)
I actually know that place. I have seen it in a documentary many years ago. However, it wouldn’t be easy to make a unique map from it. And I guess you would use snow terrain which many people would not appreciate having basically all of the map bright white.
|How do you evaluate the inclusion of the 1v1? It looks like it favoured the teams that are the strongest on paper already, but it also was a unique opportunity to prepare or just get the experience to face a top player.||I completely agree. Although we saw some upsets in the 1v1 series here and there, it generally favoured the top teams. Especially for us not playing a lot of 1v1s and lacking the experience, it kind of felt like an auto loss in our series which made it even harder to beat top teams. For streamers and viewers it’s probably a really nice mix but for me personally (being almost exclusively a team game player) I would have preferred to only have team games in the tournament.||For our team the 1v1 phase was basically an auto-loss in every set we played. It was mostly a “get it over and hopefully don’t get tilted for the upcoming team game” kind of thing. |
But I am extremely happy that Annotoph managed to show off his immense skill by playing a great game vs Capoch and convincingly beating him in a straight up game.
This also gave me the opportunity to play Nicov in the decider match, on Ounianga, a water map in a Vikings war nonetheless. I have never felt so helpless in my entire AoE II career, when I tried to keep up with the galley micro and got utterly crushed, he is just insanely good.
|I thought it hurt us as a team, because we don’t have the same level of 1v1 experience as the other top teams. Now, it did make us brainstorm as to what strategies we would use to try and win the 1v1s while also not divulging our strategies on the other maps, which was a fun thought experiment.|
3rd part: More AoE-related questions and outro:
|Who would you like to meet once, who you have not met? One AoE player and one other person.||Slam and Helmut Schmidt.||TheViper and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.||TheViper and Barack Obama.|
|Do you have an AoE idol?||Liereyy.||TG pocket: The Viper; TG flank and 1vs1: Liereyy.||TheViper.|
|What is your favourite civilisation, map and unit?||Berbers, Hill Fort, Camel Archer,||Franks, Hill Fort, Paladin.||Ethiopians, Arabia, Arbalest.|
|What is your favourite in-game sound?||The age up sound.||The sound when I find sheep.||The sound when a castle is destroyed.|
|Which 4-5 players would you like to form a team? (can include inactive players)||Rubenstock, Lyx, Sitaux and TaToH.||Liereyy, Hera, TheViper, Sitaux.||Kkab, DauT, Viper, JorDan (TyranT Legends).|
|Which players would you invite for Nili’s Apartment Cup 4?||TheViper, TaToH, JorDan, Hera, Liereyy, MbL, Nicov, Yo, Villese and DauT.||TheViper, Hera, Liereyy, Yo, Daut, Nicov, JorDan, Villese and Sitaux.|
I want Sitaux to get an opportunity to show off his great AoE II skills. He is absolutely nuts, but he is still lacking a
breakout performance in a big 1v1 tournament. He is also a hilarious person with great humor - perfect for NAC.
|TheViper, Liereyy, Jordan, DauT, Mr Yo, Nicov, Hera, Sitaux, TaToH.|
|What is the funniest thing you have experienced because of AoE II?||DauT and F1Re casting at NAC 2.||I always get a smile on my face when I see Dave outmicroing and outplaying people with a damn controller. I gladly send people I know from other games to Dave’s stream so they can witness this treat.||I was playing a team game with Kingcat, Annotoph, and LemonJack on Migration. I was pocket Koreans and had never played pocket on Migration before, which I didn’t want to admit to the team. So, instead of improvising my build, I hotkeyed Kingcat’s TC and watched his build order (while playing the game!) and copied exactly what he did for all of the Dark Age.|
|What would you do to make the world a better place?||Give everyone access to a good education.||Expand public transportation and make it free to use for every citizen.||Bring positivity into people’s lives through music, culture, and imagination.|
|If you were not in a relationship, and could date anyone, who would it be?||I’m perfectly happy!||I am still recovering from my last relationship and don’t feel like dating yet again for the time being. Let’s see what the summer brings!||I’m good with what I’ve got!|
|While I appreciate your honest answers, this is rather meant to be a hypothetical “dream” question, so you picking a celebrity or such.||WWE Wrestler Becky Lynch.|
|Do you want to add any additional comment or question?||We’d like to thank RoR, UNUR, nC, and SuN for helping us with practicing for the tournament. Also, we’d like to thank all the smaller streamers like Nova, BlackAddersPlays, and others who casted our games and covered the tournament from the very beginning. We’d also like to thank the admin team and sponsors for putting together such a great tournament.|
