  QPL: WEEK 2 vs RU coollerz, WEEK 3 vs IT vengeurR, WEEK 4 vs UA xron, WEEK 5 vs RU coollerz
 

BIO: Like shadows in the night, this Cheetah that is K1llsen will attack when and where you least expect. He will snipe players from such a great distance and then close in with some of the most devastating aim to finish off his opponents. With his vast experience in Quake, K1llsen is always calm and collective while he’s on the hunt, followed by a torrent of emotions post-match.

You are top ranking player in EU and Globally. You lost just 2 maps during first 5 weeks against IT VengeurR. Are you happy with your performance so far? 

   

Apart of the matchup vs VengeurR i’m happy with my perfomance.

I played really terrible in week 3 and hope i can fix this mistake in the upcoming Matchups. But there is no Room for any kind of mistakes now, so i’m also putting a lot of pressure on myself, but need to keep it on a healthy level so that my shoulders not start to weight to heavy. 

NOTE: Week 3 Matches and Week 3 Awards

 
 

You are talking about preassuring yourself, do you have any special rituals how to shake it off?

Does reasonable level of stress push you to better performance, or it is binding and slowing you down? Do you even allow emotions to mess with you at that match?

   

I don't have any special ritual for it, but for sure it can push you to do better and surpass the 100% but if allowed to much it's gonna slow you down and makes you feel stuck. so it's a very tricky and sensitive thing to deal with.

I think you have seen me often enough mid match even, that sometimes emotions come out. But it's important to immediately forget about that moment and keep going to give your best at any time.

 
 

What to you see as your main strengths, that allow you to dominate during first 5 Weeks?

   

It’s really hard to talk like that about myself.

Maybe it‘s because i‘m able to understand my opponents really well and able to adjust from Situation to Situation. Of course aiming and being able to trust your aim always helps, but is not the key. For sure there are some more factors to it, i could also add some more depth here, but magician also not telling his secrets, right?

 
 

You played RANGER 3 times, won all maps with him. He is among most selected champions with 29 picks. With VISOR you won both games and he was selected 31 times alltogether.

TOP 3 is completed by GALENA with 27 summonings, but you dont play her at all, do you find her ability not that helpfull or it does not suit your style?

NOTE: Champions Pickups and Performances, Champions Matchups

   

The main reason for these numbers of Ranger and Visor are that these are champions that people just „like“ to play and very basic champions. Often they are not even played good or being useful in certain matchups.

I still think Galena is the strongest overall Champion if you keep all maps in mind, sure she can be a little less strong on 1-2 maps, but still useful on these and is always tough to deal with. So the issue is more often i had to make use of my Ban to deny Galena for my Opponent.

 
 

How do you pick Champions? Are there some personal preferences, or you pick Champs that suit your style? Do you BAN champions against Player, Arena or by personal hatelist?

   

I ban/pick the champions that suits me the most and how i think about my opponent and their strength, but there are also matchups that i just like or don’t like to play.

 
 

You are biggest monster with RAIL all around, you delivered during first 5 weeks 13 528 DMG with this weapon. Is there any special practise you do regarding RAIL, or you just love it?

NOTE: Damage of Unholy Trinity, Champions Pickups and Map selections of each players at at theirs Profile page.

   

I think it’s not a secret that i like the Railgun. There is no special practice or anything behind. It can be very dangerous even once you miss a very important shot and can be tough to not let it happen.

 
 

Your RL is even deadlier with 16 440 DMG, but there are two other players that „minced theirs meat even more thoroughly“, can you tip, who they are?

NOTE: k1llsen is among TOP 3 Rocket Launcher Damage Dealers After 5 WEEKS: IT vengeurR (18 642), US dramiS (17 101)

   

I guess Rapha and Raisy? Raisy especially because of his strong defense plays, i’m not sure if it’s really Rapha but could imagine.

 
 

You stream a lot, do you enjoy interaction with fans?

I know you probably had some time to get used to it, but how challenging it is to be one of major faces of community?

NOTE: Tune in to k1llsenFAM, smash that follow and subscribe if you can.

   

Of course i do love to interact with my fans/viewers/k1llsenFAM! and i do love every minute of it, but at the same time i have to be careful to not reveal to much of my gameplay wich can be tough sometimes, but since k1llsenFAM is the best - they understand when i don't do coachings/going to deep into the way of how i think about situations.

But it's not only that, i'm trying to get them involved still into my matchups and imagine like every single one sitting in front of me watching me playing and cheering(they kinda are just at home, right?) - THIS feeling really pushes me and my streams are the only way to thank everyone supporting me - i hope one day i'm able to give some more back then just the streams!

 
 

I believe you already do, thanks to you we are able to see some amazing actions across arenas. Thank you for your time and good luck in next weeks. See you in IT Lucca.
