Interview von Chaos mit DOOMer
im Quakenet am 06.09.2000:
Hello guys and thanks in advance for the interview...
pq|EoC|Chaos: First of all, could u give our readers some
information about you two?
xorgal: My name is sverker bodin,
im 17 years and live in stockholm/sweden
DOOMer: Tomi Kärnä, 23 year old student
pq|EoC|Chaos: Xorgal: What were the reasons for you, to change
from clan e9 (Eyeballers) to Clan9 ?
xorgal: to make a long story short,
we had some problems in e9 and i just felt more home in clan9
pq|EoC|Chaos: thats a good reason...
pq|EoC|Chaos: What would you two say about the development
in progaming in scandinavia...and especially in Sweden ?
DOOMer: Pretty slow so far. We have
a lot of talent but not a lot of sponsorship, tournaments
pq|EoC|Chaos: Is it possible to make a living with quake?
How about sponsorchips ?
pq|EoC|Chaos: And how can you afford all the flights?
xorgal: Quake3 as all games will
die sometime, so u cant really make a living on it forever.
xorgal: and more clans are getting sponsors, and its often
the sponsors who pay the trips
DOOMer: Well if you are the best
and win every tourney you attend then sure. But the chances
for that aren´t very big. I guess you need a website along
with the gaming like Thresh and the XSR crew to become very
succesful economically. Flights are usually paid by sponsors
but thats also about it.
pq|EoC|Chaos: How much training did you need to become such
good players...and how much do you practice each day now?
xorgal: when Quake3 came out to the
stores , i buyed it directly ... and i practiced so much so
i totally fucked up my school =/
DOOMer: Well I´ve been playing for
5 years now so :) Guess about 2 hours / day
pq|EoC|Chaos: ok =/
pq|EoC|Chaos: Back to Clan9...I read on your homepage that
you started with a new team in the USA...so how is it doing
DOOMer: Really well. They recently
won K9-Con without much practise at all so I think they will
do very good in the future.
pq|EoC|Chaos: Do you already know, what touraments you´ll
participate next? Anyones in germany?
pq|EoC|Chaos: And what players do you know in germany?
DOOMer: No idea really except for
the world championships in Korea.
xorgal: SK ofcourse, Griff and little
brother Kane =)
DOOMer: Well almost all the SK dudes
and some ppl from ocrana. Griff and Kane I know the best.
Been to many events with them and spoken with them quite much
pq|EoC|Chaos: And last but not least some questions about
the national team of sweden...
pq|EoC|Chaos: You both participated in the bwec...were you
satisfied with the result, or does it still bother you?
xorgal: dosen´t bother me anymore,
and i mean, BWEC2 is gonna start soon, ill take my revenge
DOOMer: Doesn´t really bother me
anymore but I´m not satisfied with the result. It could have
been worse though if Russia would have owned us but now they
won with a few frags so it could have gone either way. Tactic
and playwise I think we did a splendid job through the whole
pq|EoC|Chaos: Ok that´s about it...thanks again to both of
you. And good luck in the future! Hope to see you again some
time...perhaps playin quake.
pq|EoC|Chaos: Anything else you wanna say to our readers?
DOOMer: youre welcome
DOOMer: negative ;)
xorgal: thx man, cu
