With the lull in LAN tournaments I decided to interview someone in Quake who we don't really hear a lot from but is amongst the top players, Jeffrey "draven" Debipersad. The interview covers a little bit about his life before high-level gaming, how he discovered Quake and some words of encouragement for any Quake players in Benelux.
Despite being a top player in Quake who has travelled to many different tournaments, Taekwondo still has taken Draven to more places than video gaming. He attended World Championships in Korea, Greece and basically places all over Europe. However despite being the national champion, he didn’t manage to win the international tournaments, “I didn’t win, was too jetlagged and too nervous on those podiums as 15-16 year old kid”.
Read the interview (with this fascinating individual) over at Hello Liefje.
