1st place TGL CNC:TW opening Cup with OKTRON
So, outside of Germany you are not as well known as some other German players. Can you tell me a little about your CC3 experience?
Well, I started to play C&C3 with the release. I decided first just to play for fun but soon I became ambitious and searched for a clan for competition. I asked OKTRON if I can join and so OKTRON became my CnC3-Clan. I became strong very fast and tried to play 2on2 mainly with my mate StyleLiga. Soon we won several 2on2 tourneys. Because of StyleLiga's inactivity the last time, I played a lot 1on1s. Since 1.09 I play only GDI and created my own style and could soon mess with the best players. That’s why I qualified for the leader season 1 tourney with my nick T.Jaa. Unfortunately I have to play against Dackel in the 2nd round so I think this tourney will be over very fast for me.
You don't think you can beat Dackel?
No, not really. Yesterday I played him in the RTSCup tournament and got owned 2:0, but I should have won the first match. Maybe I can win a game vs. Dackel, but I think he will be a better GDI player than I am
How seriously are you taking this tournament? You have two weeks, how much practice time to do you expect to put in?
I take this tournament serious. This would be a great chance to mess with the best in 1on1 so I can prove how strong I became with my GDI. And if I can give Dackel trouble it would be a success.
I'm sure some *other* players would appreciate it if you knocked Dackel out. How would you feel if you are able to beat Dackel?
Very good because I would gain a lot of respect and of course that’s a good advertising for OKTRON.
It would probably give you a lot of momentum; people would be intimidated to face the guy who beat Dackel, right?
Right. I would advance to the best players if I would beat Dackel and the next one to reach the final. That sounds a bit strange.
It makes sense. Momentum is a key factor in these tournaments, which is why being in a hard group is so difficult. Better to play the good players later on once you are warmed up and feeling good. Okay, last question. Who is going to win the tournament?
I think each group has its favorites. But the biggest favourite is Dackel I think, he wins almost each 1on1 tourney. But another one who is not to underestimate is Zockergod. He showed yesterday that he is able to beat Dackel and he was one of the best players since the first days of C&C3.
