It was recently announced that Avant Garde have picked up their first ever Quake team in the Melbourne duo Lure (Matthew, 26) and Crunchy (Ethan, 17). Both players competed most recently at the Melbourne Esports Open and in doing so secured themselves a place competing in the PAX QC 2v2 Competition. We look forward to watching them battle it out among Oceanic's best in the OQS Duel competition but took the chance to get to know them a little better as rising players in the scene.
First of all, How were you first introduced to Quake and how long have you played for?
Lure: Randomly found Rapha's DM6 game on ESL classics and started from there playing Quake Live, so roughly 2 years on and off.
Crunchy: Ultimate_Sacrifice recommended I play it at LANslide, and have been grinding playtime for a little under 2 months now.
What is your favourite moment that can happen in Quake Champions ?
Strong LG tracking always feels pretty good ;P 77777777
I love watching Clawz but would more model my game after Rapha.
Thank you for taking the time to talk to us today. Do you have any final words you would like to say to spectators?
I'd like to thank everyone for their support and especially Avant Garde for being amazing throughout the course of the current and future tournaments
Overall I'd like to give a massive thank you to Avant Garde as they took a chance on us and we hope to do them proud. I'd also like to thank the people who support me and watch my games, also special shoutout to the people who have helped me improve and become the player I am today, especially TheSpudHunter, [NZ] Phyrigian, Rep, Foedanny and Bobbicals.
