◾️ Why did you join TLR? How have you been finding it so far?
“I joined TLR simply because I’ve heard nothing but good things from them from a good friend of mine who works in the gaming industry. Also, I like how they promote their players through social media.”
“I’m not too familiar with the other players in the org, but I do know that we all gain a lot of support from TLR as we’re always communicating through discord and everyone’s always nice.
◾️ What do you want to achieve in the org and as an individual player?
“I’d like to put TLR on the map by streaming regularly and growing as a twitch partner as well being a consistent player in my region so I can have a shot in the Capcom Cup.”
◾️ Biggest Achievement to date?
“Earning a twitch partnership and earning multiple top 8 finishes in CPT ranking events.”
◾️ What’s your favourite thing about SFV?
“My favourite thing about sfv would be the character diversity in this game. I’m a player who likes to play multiple characters at high level, so I like having a wide variety with different tools.”
◾️ What do you love about fighting games in general?
“What I enjoy the most about fighting games is that it’s just you vs the opponent. 1v1. No teammates to rely on. A battle between two.”
◾️ Fav fighting character? Why?
“My favourite fighting game character would be Dudley from SFIV. He’s British, drives a fancy car and has the deadliest combos/mixups.”
◾️ First combo you ever learned?
“My first ever combo I learned was with Ryu in SF2. Crouch medium kick into Hadooken.”
“Happy to announce that I have signed for The Last Resort as their first SFV player! Looking forward to competing again.” – SHAKZ
◾️ Favourite FGC event/player (other than yourself :D)?
“My favourite event of all time has to be EVO in Las Vegas”
“My favourite player of all time other than myself has to be Infiltration from Korea. He’s a player that has many different strategies and the most effective in my opinion. He has a hit and run style which is very entertaining to watch!”
◾️ What’s the next LAN you’re looking forward to?
“The next online Capcom Pro Tour event for Europe West.”
◾️ What games do you enjoy other than SFV?
“I like to play COD Warzone and Fortnite with my friends.”
◾️ What else do you do for fun?
“I like going out with friends and family, keeping up with the latest sneakers, playing football, listening to music, and travelling!”
