It’s been like AGES since IVGC, how do you feel?
I miss Cannes already, I had an absolute blast meeting the players there from all around the world and they’re all a bunch of great guys.
What has stuck in your mind from the event?
Drinking and playing at the Orochinagi room with everybody=)
Why did you go to IVGC?
I went to IVGC as it was the first big tourney of the year that was quite close to home. I had been practicing and wanted to see how far my progress had come along on all the relevant games.
Was it what you expected?
I was happy to win so many games, 3 gold medals for AE, Tekken and ST and 2 silver for AE is never anything to be unhappy about. I was happy to see Dieminion, Xian and Bala. It was also good that Europe defeated them as a group on AE. Bala is so sick at KOF, had fun watching him in action.
What do you remember, a week later?
That I will keep training to improve myself all the time. I want to do even better than I did next time.
What was the best and worst thing of the trip?
Best thing was having everyone from UK there with me and winning together, worst thing was losing to France in only the 3 on 3, I wanted a clean sweep.
Is there anything you’d like more of or improved?
The prizes could be much better at this event, if I measure the WGC/IVGC prizes with all other European/US tournaments including size comparison of entrants, IVGC doesn’t pay that much.
Would you recommend going there and would you go again?
The event is fun in large groups so I’d definitely encourage people to go with their friends to play in tournament. The whole self catering thing is a blast when there is a chef amongst the group as well. Haha!
