Interviewland heeft de afgelopen dagen zeker niet stil gezeten. Zo hebben onze collega's van x6tence een interview gehouden met niemand minder dan walle. Om het totale interview te kunnen lezen, dat over Gaming in het algemeen en NiP gaat, moet je je registreren op de site. Je kunt het hele interview hier vinden.

You have already been playing for five years, spending most of that time at the highest level of competition. Do you feel as motivated now as you did at the start of your career or have you perhaps lost some of that old feeling? I'd say it has been different kinds of fun through the years. When you started out you could have a blast just fooling around at a public server for hours, nowadays the thrill is in preparing for a tournament and playing it. It's still as fun, but in another way. It's different from player to player of course, I for one still enjoy fooling around at public :)
Het tweede interview dat ook zeker de moeite waard is om te lezen is gehouden door Ownage.nl. Zij wisten King Tuur te interviewen over de komende editie van de WCG.

De laatste tijd is er nogal veel op jou afgekomen sinds die wereldtitel Halo 2. Wat heb jij de laatste maanden allemaal uitgevreten? Ik ben naar Leipzig geweest voor die Games Convention, was zeer geslaagd, kijk maar op mijn site www.kingtuur.nl. Verder had ik afgelopen vrijdag een fotoshoot in Amsterdam voor het tijdschrift "Bright". Dat worden zeer vette foto's! Daarnaast kreeg ik net een mail dat ik naar de X05 mag! (jippie!!)
Het derde interview wat zeker de moeite waard is om te lezen is gehouden door de Duitstalige nieuws site readmore.de. Zij interviewde niemand minder dan TheSlaSH, een van de leiders van de succesvolle multigaming organisatie SK-Gaming. In het interview gaat hij dieper in over het vertrek van de Deense divisie en de problemen tussen SK en de ESL.

At the ESWC, Whimp said that they played without any stress for the first time. Did the second place not convince the players that they finally made the turn? No, sadly not. It is true that they had no stress because we had done everything to keep it away from them. I phoned Jonas before the final to congratulate but also to tell them that everyone in SK is with them and very proud of what they are achieving right now. Sure, a win in the final would have made us even happier, but coming into the final made the whole trip a success already. After the ESWC we continued with keeping the stress away from them, leaving them with two goals: The Pro-Series in Denmark and the WCG qualification. We were aiming for the top spot in both competitions. The guys sadly saw no way for them to make this happen. That is not bad, it would have been much worse if they would have failed to realize this. Out of this they drew the only good conclusion. They tried it but did not succeed and then they took the consequences together with us.
Onze collega's van nordicgamers hebben een interview gehouden met twee spelers van Wings nl. Lurppis en Shiri. In het interview gaan ze dieper in op de prestaties van het team op evenementen zoals CPL Spain en Dreamhack.
Quote:
Ok, let's talk about the visit in Barcelona, Spain. You were one of team that attended the event and your last match were against g3x and 9-12 were your end position. Were there something at that tournament as you was very disappointed about? We didnt like that the admins whined about shouting. And without ventrilo it's impossible to play without shouting very loud. But since it was our first CPL and that we won Team 3D there, we can't be disappointed really. Barcelona was a great city and we had a lot of fun there also. lurppis: Not really, I really loved the tournament in all aspects, only thing I would have changed was allowing people to smoke inside. And the bathroom was like a mile away too :P.
Het laatste interview dat ook de moeite waard is om te lezen is een vertaling door SK-Gaming van een oorspronkelijk interview dat werd gehouden door Catch-Gamer.no met een van hun eigen spelers bsl. Het interview gaat over de sterke prestaties van het team op de afgelopen CPL-stop.
Quote:
The team ended up in third place, yet, the tournament was ended by two losses. What is your opinion on the last matches? CPL Sheffield became a bit of a paradox after we played really well Saturday when we beat g3x and NoA. Sunday we were a totally different team, it was definitely not our day and no matter how hard we tried, we didn't get our game going. It was simply too bad, fortunately we had reached far enough to get a good placement to comfort us after those horrible results on Sunday.
