JeeSport's August Series of Quake Live has ended and the September Series is about to begin. The top 3 finalists of last months Play-offs have found a moment to have a chat with us about their games. Enjoy some nice words from Evil.
So to start things off, could you tell us a bit about you and give us a quick gaming history of yourself?
Evil: Hi, my name is Sergey Orekhov. I’m 23 years old, now I'm out of employment because of hospitalisation. I'll be entering university to study speciality managering. In the near time I'll be engaging taekvo-to. I began with Q2, and then began to play in CS, Starcraft and Q3. And I chosen Q3 and after, began to practice.
I hope for you all best with a health, and successes in the Uni entering! With the choice of game all is clear, will talk about the tournament of Jeesports August. You passed qualification, and appeared on 5th place with 937 ratings points on results a month. How did you do in the qualification rounds to get you to the finals? What did you think of the JeeSports 'points' structure also?
Evil: As far as I remember, I played two qualifications and both won them, and in the final I didn't feel completely ready and so I lost accordingly. And in general, the points structure that JeeSports used was great to warm up for such finals.
Out of all the players in the line up, who or which players did you 'fear' playing the most?
Evil: Nobody. I played all opponents with a lot of care, till Amai.
On translation from finals we looked after your game in a semifinal against kRoNic. There were enough tense maps and close scores, what can you say about this semifinal, and in general, what do you think about kRoNic, he took the 3rd place beating p0ni in a match for bronze.
Evil: If honestly, I was not in my best form that day and hardly beat the competitor kRoNic. In general, kRoNic is a great guy. lately he's often participating in on-line tournaments and even made top 3. I want more players like him!
After this, it was your final against Amai. Unfortunately for you, you lost that game, why did it go bad for? Was it just that you weren't in your best shape?
Evil: For the final against Amai I was very hungry already, and yet tired after kRoNic and I wanted to have a small break to eat up and recover forces, but Amai had no time(he had to be somewhere) and so I had to play him there and then.
Now that we've covered your games, I was hoping we could get your opinion on the new cup that JeeSports is launching. JeeSports will be hosting Amateur cups (as well as the open cups) where players will be able to compete for professional coaching. Do you think this is a good way to push the community forward?
Evil: It can be and there will be some development of community after it, and whether a level will rise middle or low level quakers after training with pro is already dependant on the desire of the man to study, well and assuming that training from the pro is high-quality.
A final question from myself. Can the viewers expect to see you play more JeeSports events in the future?
Evil: In the middle of September I will be in a hospital for half month, that’s why it is not possible I think.
I wish all best for your health. Do you have any last words before we finish this up?
Evil: Thanks to you for this interview.
Thanks for the answers, good luck, and cya at JeeSports Events.
