United States of America Shane "rapha'" Hendrixson, of SK Gaming, spoke in an extensive text interview about 2011, the big four of QL (himself, Russia Cooller, Belarus cypher and Poland av3k) and United States of America ZeRo4's influence on his development as a player.

On balancing aiming and thinking during engagements:
I know for myself that some games I've played, based just on the way I feel that day I've favored one over the other. Almost always the strategy portion in my case. I've noticed the same in cypher, for example, where some games/days he is just so on he focuses on the aiming and damage output portion of his game. Other days he doesn't feel so comfortable aiming so he switches to focusing on strategy and making less mistakes.
