XS is dedicated to the familial atmosphere of our community, and of course a way to promote that is to host friendly competition. The amazing folks over in the events department hosted a network-wide Overwatch 3v3 tournament and the team to come out on top was “Massive Gamers Big Memers” consisting of XGN members: Alex XGN, XGN Oreo 7, and XGN Keewee. I had the pleasure of interviewing these 3 gentlemen on their “Massive” win.
What were your thoughts going into the tournament?
Alex: “That we were going to lose, because we had no practice, but we are all really good friends so we were just there to have fun.”
Oreo: “They were positive. We had planned a couple of practice games the days before. We have also looked out for good team comps so overall I was positive we would do well.”
Keewee: “We really just joined to have fun and participate we really didn’t expect to get very far.”
Did you guys feel like you had a solid team even though it was just for fun?
Alex: “ At first it was just for fun, but we started taking it seriously when we started winning rounds.”
Oreo: “We did. We knew we weren’t the best and we knew that it would be fun, so overall we just tried enjoying ourselves while also trying to come out victorious.”
Keewee: “Hmm not really Alex kept screaming “LET’S GO GAMERS” we genuinely just had fun playing and somehow won.”
What were you feeling when you guys won the last match?
Alex: “Very happy, we didn’t think we were going to win because we knew Cory was pretty good.”
Oreo: “Overall just happy and joyful. It’s been awhile since the division has won a tournament. Alex was being extremely loud.”
Keewee: “Honestly we just laughed and had fun the whole way through Oreo started singing Barbie girl we were ecstatic!”
What was your favorite moment during the tournament?
Oreo: “Oh god. I think it was when it was myself against the full other team and I still managed to come out victorious. I am proud of myself for doing that especially when the other teams were skilled and structured.”
Keewee: “I can’t say the whole thing was really fun we genuinely just enjoyed the whole experience we aren’t the best players but we had fun playing.”
Do you think you’ll participate in future Xiled Events?
Alex: “One hundred percent. I believe all of us will take part in future events, it’s a great way to meet new people etc.”
Oreo: “Yes. I love all the Overwatch tournaments and will try to take part around work. Other than that I love to interact with other members so if I’m ever available for other tournaments I will play. In the previous years I have played in Rainbow Six Siege, Minecraft, and Call of Duty tournaments.”
Keewee: “For sure it’s always good to take part and get involved XGN Tournaments are always fun regardless of how you do in them.”
I think the biggest thing we can take away from this is that Oreo and Alex have amazing singing voices. On a more serious note big thanks to all members who participated in the tournament, even bigger thanks to the members of the Events department who made this happen, and of course congratulations to our tournament winners. Keep an eye out for all future Xiled Events if you would like to participate.
