For spectators and non-competing players who haven't been through the practice grind before, what does your training regime look like approaching the final couple of weeks of an event? Also do you prefer to play a wider range of opponents or just a few practice partners?
These events always bring the World's best Quake players together, are there any players you are looking forward to playing against or even just catching up with again?
Best way to get into the game again is to start practice 10-14 days before leaving to the Tournament. My personal preference is to play a wider range of players, some top but more
mid/high-mid opponents. But I also watch some online Cups/VOD's until a point where I feel as prepared as possible understand META champions and more play styles.
Now that groups have just been announced, looking at your group and others, what group do you feel is hardest to predict and what are your quick thoughts on your own group/opponents?
I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone and attending Dreamhack again, it's been a while since the last time. Every Top Level event is very dangerous to play, so I can't call out any specific matchup here
As there is no other major LAN tournaments announced for Quake Champions right now, what can fans of K1llsen expect over the down time period (next 3-4 months)?
I feel good that i didnt end up in Group F for sure, its gonna be a real challenge to go trough in that one since there is this 1 risky BYOC spot left and Garpy or spart1e could end up in F whoever makes it out of the BYOC. My group could have been worse, could have been better, i feel like its the same situation i had in Italy and i will go into my matches with the same feeling. I feel ready as ready as i can be and hope the best players will get trough the groups.
Thanks for chatting with us! From all of our community we wish you the best of luck for the Duel tournament. Do you have any final words for this weekend?
I'll pretty much just be a variety Streamer at that point until something is coming up, since there is nothing else to do after the Dreamhack.
Thanks for having me for this Interview and hope all of you will enjoy the Show! Of course huge thanks to my Community, Family, Girlfriend supporting me as much as they can from home!
