Wederom heeft Interviewland niet stilgestaan en ook deze keer zijn er een aantal intressante interviews die de moeite waard zijn. Allereerst heeft Team-Dignitas een interview gehouden met niemand minder dan Ztrider, die uitkomt voor fnatic en in de afgelopen WT-Stops een grote progressie heeft laten zien. Het interview gaat voornamelijk over zijn gaming-loopbaan. Het hele interview kun je hier vinden.

Tell us a bit about your gaming career and how it all started and the story behind your choice of Painkiller as the game? I think my gaming career started when I was about 3 years old, my grandmother bought me a NES because she was tired of me playing at my uncles :). I always have been playing games since, Mega Drive, SNES, Playstation, N64 GameCube and PS2. But the first time I ever tried to play a FPS game on LAN/online was in mid 2002 (first time I played q3) and I got totally hooked and could play for hours and hours vs. bots since I didn’t have any internet connection. I was playing Quake 3 only for fun for almost 2 years, then Doom 3 got released and of course I started to play it because I thought (Like everyone else) that it was the WT game, I saw this as a chance to prove that I could be a top player in a game if I played it from the start. But I couldn’t play it from the release since my computer was to sucky and I had to wait for my new one to get delivered. So after one month after the release of the game I started to play it and got pretty decent. So after a while they announced PK as the WT game so I dropped D3 and started to play PK ;), that’s my way to Painkiller :)
Het 2de interview is met lb, die deel uit maakt van het bekende css-team van mTw. In het interview gaat hij verder in op zijn voorstelling van de CSS-scene en geeft hij ook uitleg over de laatste ontwikkelingen binnen zijn team.

What do mTw have planned next, what tournaments are they going to be going to and what are their ambitions? "We are going to attend the german WCG Qualifier and we also try to attent Netgamez Lan in the Netherlands, but it'll be difficult to do both so we'll have to see how it works. We will go for 1st place on both events, that is our aim. When this works we'll try to go to CPL."
Het laatste interview dat zeker de moeite waard is om te lezen is dat van onze collega's bij de GGL. Zij wisten de nieuwe Quake 3 AmeriCup kampioen Daler te interviewen. In het interview gaat hij uitvoerig in op de veranderingen die hij heeft doorgemaakt gedurende de cup. Het hele interview kun je hier vinden.

How do you handle traveling to tournaments and education at the same time? It's summer and luckily I have no classes to work around. But during the Fall season I chose to take one class as something on the side to do while still traveling for the CPL World Tour. I have been going to a local community college for years now while still in high school, so it is pretty easy for me to afford the semester off to take time traveling and playing in tournaments. I am starting school again this fall at Texas State while only taking three classes and I hope it will be easy to juggle the wo.
