Stevy氏とのインタビュー Premier!!


先週ButtonBashersのStevy(元TEK9)とインタビューをしましたよー!
後で違うところで和訳してうpしておきます。
もしこのインタビューで気になってた事がカバー出来ていなければ私に言ってください!後でまた聞いておきますので^-^;


1)How do you practice your sniping and if you have any routines would you mind sharing it with us?

well, I usually just hop on a dm/tdm server like srs or eSuba. I lower my volume ingame and just put some music on. most of the time i just listen to some rap, like 2Pac, outlawz etc.. then i just play a bit pure based on aim, to keep my reflexes sharp and my unscopes going. If i feel i've played enough i just quit, relax a bit with more music and then start playing pcw's and officials.



2)What was the magic ingredient which made you one of the best snipers in the world?

I think persistance and motivation. After i left LowLandLions i really wanted to snipe for some reason. So i took the scope and started practising on public a bit first, see if i got what it takes to scope. And i kept sniping more and more.. so i started sniping in Team-Coolermaster. After a few weeks i really started finding my form, it got noticed by other people and then i got the chance to scope in TEK-9.



3)You started off with Assault class in COD4(if I remember correctly) what was the reason for picking up the scope?
It was really random, one day i just decided to take the scope, and since then i never dropped it.The more i play with it, the more i like it. So, I'm not going to drop the scope. It's alot of fun !




4)Which Lan/online tournament has been the most enjoyable socially and competitively?

From all the online tournaments, i liked insidiae the most. I always liked the whole best-of-3 concept. From lans i have to say AeF was deffinately my favorite. I had alot of fun there, and i loved playing there. It was a really sick event. CC5/gameland were really good aswell, really helpfull admins and the schedules were good.




5)Are there any rituals or jinks that you go by before any matches?

Yeah, before every match I always wash my hands. Then i just go take a glass of water or a cup of coffee, make a washing glove wet and clean my mouse. I've always did that for some reason, even on LAN. And i always have music on, it just makes me feel relaxed before a match.



6)We see in the frag movies that you use R700 and M40A1 how do you choose which rifle to
use?

I use to play with the M40A1 when i just started scoping, then i tried the R700 once. For some reason i just liked it more, i don't know why though. Since then i've always been playing with the R700. It's just personal preference in my opinion. eventhough they have same damage, and the r700 has 1 bullet less, i still prefer that one more.



7)So far there has been 2 cod4 frag movies from you, are you planning to make more(other than the ButtonBashers movie)?

Yeah, I wouldn't mind another movie. I've got alot of demos from the LANS i've been to that haven't been used, and some demos from officials. But we'll see what happens, maybe somebody will ask me to send him demos to make a movie. I don't mind it, it's always nice to see one of your own fragmovies.



8)what is your most favourite food and Drink?

Homemade fries with steak and a pint of carlsberg. It's just awesome.



9)What do you wish to get for your Christmas present?

hmm.. i don't know. I'm not material at all and i have money from the LANS left. So i don't know actually. I just hope 2009 will be a good year in everyway, if somebody would give me that a christmas present, it would be nice.



10)So the big lans for COD4 has pretty much finished for the foreseeable future..... what are your plans for the future in gaming?

Well, we're gonna finish the cups we're in. We're still in eurocup and ESL ems. After that we'll see what happens. Maybe they'll announce some big online cups or maybe some more LANs. I'm really curious what will happen.


11)Who are the top five most dangerous players to you?

SoCLoN, kAMMYz, Eplot1c, OZWALD, Wombat



12)How Much do you get for your salary?

We get 300 euro's a month, and 25 euro each day we're @LAN.



13)How much do top pro players get on average?

No idea, I only know that we're the only team in europe that gets a salary in Call of Duty 4.



14)Why did you decide to go pro?

I always liked the idea of making money with doing your hobby. I always thought it must be the most relaxing thing in the world, but i was wrong though. It's fun and everything, but it's tiring sometimes. Coming back from lan, sleeping 1 day home, leaving for another lan, coming back and then waking up 5 days in a row at 5.00 in the morning so you have to go to work. And i also wanted to prove to the people i wouldn't be able to pull it off, that nothing is impossible if you have the right attitude and personality.



15)Are there any games that you are looking forward to getting your hands on?

Not really, besides Call of Duty 4 I barely play any other games. Sometimes pro evolution soccer, but that's about it. I don't even have an idea which games are coming out.



16) Are there still some room for improvements on your skills in COD4?

Absolutely. I never think i'm the best, i just think i'm one of the best and i need to keep improving. It's what keeps me motivated and going. Better reflexes, fastscopes, things like that i always want to improve.



17)Is there a reason for doing the reload canceling whilst you are sniping?

It's just a habit, and it also takes off like half a second for another bullet to fire. I started doing it since the first time i played with scope and i never stopped doing it since. Same as hold-breath. It's just a habbit.




18) Is there a technique on getting noscope/no aim to hit the target?

I don't think there is, It's just a bit of luck to be honest. But i do think there's a "technique" for fast-scoping. I do sprint, stop, crouch and quickly shoot. And it works really well



19)What do you want to get for your Christmas Present?

hmm.. i don't know. I'm not material at all and i have money from the LANS left. So i don't know actually. I just hope 2009 will be a good year in everyway, if somebody would give me that a christmas present, it would be nice.



20)How do you keep your form and your teams form?

Not playing to much. Whenever we're not praccing with the team i just don't play or I play with some people i know really well and joke around. It's a bad feeling when you know you're overplayed. Sometimes i just don't play for 3 days and then start pltaying again. But it's personal in my opinion. Some people can play all day and all night long. Same goes for our team, we don't play 24/7, we don't play on fridays, saturdays, and we play really late on thursdays. It works well for us.




21)Which do you think is most important in a team: communication or personal skills ?

In order to be succesfull you need to have both. it's really important to have players that can clutch alot of situations (1v2, 1v3, 1v4), but it's also really important that you communicate well if you're in a 2v4 for example. It's about 3 things, communication, personal skills & teamplay. And anything besides that like luck is just a nice extra.


Team Gear won the latest tournament in Japan. Can you give us a somment for the team :p

I know Aster. I've talked to him a few times actually, very nice polite guy. It's nice to see he's motivated and that he and his team are persistant. So congratulations with your win, I hope you'll win many more ! And never give up.

Lan Parties

So few more days till christmas!! woot woot

Anyway Just wanted to show a piece by Corin about Lan parties and etc.

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars" wrote Oscar Wilde in 1892, and aside from having an excuse to fit a fantastic quote into this column, I think that it is a fair representation of the great majority of esports events, though more so for some than for others, naturally.

When we watch sporting events on national TV rarely do we begin to criticise the organisation of the event, the way it has been set up, or the way it is broadcasted by the media, yet hardly a gaming event goes past without being plagued by issues in almost every department.

Certainly it would be unfair to blame this entirely on the organisers of these events. They have far smaller budgets to work on, both for the events themselves and for the coverage, they have far less experience of running events, and the huge community involvement in pretty much everything that goes on in esports, events included, makes problems and mistakes far more transparent. That said, John Powell once said (and I promise I won’t bring in any more quotes after this) "The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing", and I certainly believe that far too many events are guilty of these "real mistakes" time and time again.

Before I do start being too 9-12th of events (too critical of events, geddit?), I’d like to point out that I’m not looking to criticise for the sake of criticising, but for the sake of indicating where improvements need to be made, and questioning why they haven’t been made faster.

Multiplay will next year prove to be a great example of what a big difference a few small improvements can make, but they would be the first to admit that their tournaments have not always been perfect in the past. Tournament format has been a sour point of many events, from the infamous debate between "world cup classic" and "world cup fair" for Multiplay events, to the depressingly poor seedings (or lack thereof) demonstrated at The GameLand in Rome just a couple of weeks ago.


Debate breaks out over the tournament format at Multiplay's i35 two months ago.

They key reason why this is murky water is surely the lack of a governing body that every event must answer to, which has lead to there being no single standard format of tournament, resulting in different gamers having different preferences. It’s certainly going to be a long and a steep road, but maybe, just maybe, national associations like UKeSA, as members of the IeSF, can bring this unity to events, but for now what is really needed is just some common sense in making sure that the tournaments are run as the communities want them to be run, not in ways which are arguably better, but far less popular, or indeed in formats that frankly make little sense at all.

My main grudge, however, is a grudge that should not need to be held against any events, and while it is possible that my job may cause some bias in this area, I think it is also the case that it allows me to clearly see where the problem lies. The problem I am talking about is the coverage that events allow themselves to have. I’ve quoted all events as lying in a gutter looking skyward, and there is only really one event for which I can honestly say that this statement isn’t true, and that event is The Experience, a Danish LAN. That’s not to say there aren’t many many other great events, just to say that this is the one LAN, at least the one CSS LAN, which has already managed to touch the stars.

One of the great joys of my job is that I get to travel to more events each year than I can count on my two hands, and it’s rare that I don’t end up getting asked to give feedback on each event come the end, and it really is quite a testament to TeX.dk that the feedback I gave before I flew back to the UK was simply "please please please can you get some stronger air conditioning in the press balcony next year".


Oh how I wish all events could mimic the work of those Danes, not just for my own benefit, but for the benefit of the community, and, just as importantly, for the benefit of the events themselves. I don’t expect every tournament organiser to be a have a love for the community they serve, but I do expect them to realise that by improving the quality of the tournaments they put on, and by allowing the best possible coverage to come out of their event, they are pleasing the community who fund their events via ticket sales, and as such are helping themselves.

Of course, it is rarely a case of black against white, something which it is all too easy to forget from the outside. Anyone sat at home following i35 and MaxLAN back at the start of November will no doubt have been disappointed by the lack of SourceTV servers coming out of the French event, but sadly it was not a simple case of the organisers not caring. As a matter of fact, it was just a case of their internet connection not being able to cater for the proxies. They could have ordered more and more of the 2mb connections (the fastest line available for their venue), paying a year subscription for each, pushing ticket prices up; similarly they could have moved to a more expensive location, a more expensive venue. But who is to say that a rise in ticket prices, or a decrease in the prize funds, wouldn’t have put off the very teams that people want to see on SourceTV from coming to the event, and where would that have got anyone?

On the other side of the spectrum, there’s the recent case of The GameLand in Italy. Despite one of, if not the most impressive websites I’ve ever seen a LAN organiser create, both visually and technically, not an ounce of official coverage came out of the event, not a single fixture nor result on the site, there was no official press partner to output coverage through, and even now there nothing more than the most basic of PDF files listing the finishing places of the teams, nothing of everything else that went on there.


The header of The GameLand's website, beautifully designed yet greatly lacking in coverage.

I find it simply staggering that a tournament boasting €80,000 in prize money could not only neglect to set aside a section on their site for the official fixtures, results, brackets and so on, but even went so far as forbidding players from using chat software to inform coverage sites such as Cadred and Tek9 of the latest updates.

Multiplay have received a lot of backlash this year for mistakes they have made, and to their credit they have taken it onboard, and I’ll be very surprised we don’t see some really big improvements at i36, but now is the time for every event out there to realise how important it is not to be the event they want to be, but to be the event their customers want them to be. Well run tournaments, good coverage for everyone at home, these things are not optional cherries on the cake, they are the cake itself, and it is time for them to stop getting over-looked.

2009 is the year of the Ox, but it is also the year for LANs to step up to the table and do the very best they can do, not the minimum they can get away with.

Thnx Corin
