BIO: Xron always seems to have more information than his opponents. The handler will scout out his opponents far ahead of time to seek any and all advantages. Xron doesn’t have the flashiest style, however he knows how to handle his opponent and he always get the job done. And he does it well.

You are doing Shoutcast of Quake Challengers League with PL Av3k, how do you enjoy it and do you think, that there is chance other two than BY Cypher and RS Serious will end up in Finals? :-)

   

I enjoy casting. I think its helpful for me to review other players and analyze games.

I think RS serious is definitely going to next lan, but BY cypher still has to overcome EE cnz. I think cnz is my favorite player to watch. Also NL silencep is dark horse and he improves with every weak and its possible he will suprise us on next  challenger tournaments.

 
 

You are now in the middle of EU/CIS Standings with 14 point, are you happy with your performance so far?

Your game with RU BaSe on Week 5 was hell of a ride, from slow paced tactical battles to myhem on Vale.

How would you define yourself as a player?
What style does work best for you, or do you improvise on the go?

   

Im happy with my perfomance so far. I expected a lot worse.

I dont think i have any specific style, I am just trying to adapt and play around my opponent strenghts and around what I feel confident.

Sometimes you have good days when you hit everything and can do whatever you want, sometimes you feel uncomfortable in-game and need to play slower and so on.

 
 

Any special comment on Blood Run against RU baSe and 3% Rocket Launcher and 39 DMG dealt? Screen

NOTE: Clutch WON 6 out of 7 games in QPL, his NET FRAGS are +34. ONLY Champion able to beat him was Eisen in hands of US DaHanG

   

Rocket is worst weapon against Clutch in my opinion because of his dash ability, so I am generally rarely using it in this match up.

 
 

You actually never lost on Vale of Pnath ...
... do you love that map or is there any other Arena you favourite?

   

I never liked vale in the beginning, but statistics wise I think its really my best map, so because of that Im liking it more and more.

I dont really have favorite map. I like all maps except blood run and corrupted keep.

 
 

It was amazing game against DE k1llsen on week 4, do you feel you could have it and how tough it is to concentrate for 10 minutes against such opponent. How long do you know about hole at Blood Run?

NOTE: Hole on Blood Run was fixed - with some other map improvements - in Last PTS Patch

   

I dont have hard time concentrating against anyone. I treat every opponent in same way and its just 3 maps to play per week, so its not exhausting or hard for me. I think I could have won blood run, but I did throw my advantage, but overall DE k1llsen was a better player so he won.

I know about hole on blood run since it was posted on reddit like 2 or 3 months ago.

 
 

You managed to push thru Scalebearer twice, how funny do you find him to play?

If I check your champions selected, they are mostly Heavy Champions, do you tend to pick heavy, or was it out of nessesity considering your Opponents.

NOTE: You can find Champion preferences, Total damage dealt and Arenas played at Players Profile

   

I think scalebearer is the most fun champion to play right now and I enjoy playing him, so I am kinda testing his limits and match ups where I can play him. I prefer tanky champions lately because on quakecon all tanks were stronger than other classes. Online I think its different and tanks arent that good, but main goal for me is next lan stop, so I want to prepare myself for that as much as possible.

 
 

I met several times Scalebearer on Corrupted Keep and it seems to me really tough to defend against bullrush with pummel in his hands.

You die in matter of miliseconds, any advice to newbies how to delt with him rather than keep your distance?

   

Just dont be scared of scalebearer. Max distance bullrush does only 100 dmg, so Its pretty easy to outdmg him. Shooting him back and staying cool is best advice I can give.

 
 

You eneded up 3 times as most precise LG player during first 5 weeks, do you have some tips to newbies how to improve their shaft, or it is skills obtaned by playing countles hours and talent. Do you consider LG your best/favourite weapon?

QUAKE PRO LEAGUE AWARDS: WEEK 1, WEEK 2, WEEK 3, WEEK 4, WEEK 5

   

LG is my worst weapon and I never was good at tracking, but because I understand it and accepted it, Im avoiding every LG fight possible and using it only when I have superior positions and its impossible to miss.

The best tip to improve is to just play the game more and more and focus on whatever you want to improve.

 
 

Thank you man for all answers and your time put into this chat and into community with your streams. Good luck with rest of Stage 1 and see you in IT Lucca!
