It’s our pleasure to award SuperSpock9000 with the BOTM this time! As a veteran of the team by now, he recently qualified for a Top64 spot, finished Top12 in the TLG Invitational and inspires us with his constant dedication and ability to help his teammates! Congratulations!
Babyjosus: Hey Spock. What does it mean to you to receive your first BOTM?
Superspock9000: Hi BJ! It feels pretty good. After seeing a handful of my peers getting BOTM, I always thought it would be cool to get it myself.
BJ: You are now officially one of the cool kids. How was your experience to qualify and play in the Top16 in The Invitational 2?
SS: It was quite the journey all in all. I started in the community qualifier going 5-2 over the course of 2 days and seven rounds of swiss. For the first weekend of the main event I went 6-1 with a final series that I don’t think I’ll ever forget. 2 Ties, 1 PC crash and then finally 3 games after that to decide a winner. It was easily one of the longest days of Gwent I’ve ever had. Unfortunately, weekend 2 didn’t go as well as I had wished. I lost my first series in the winners bracket and only made it into the 3rd round of losers before getting knocked out. However, I had some really cool matches against some very good opponents and the event showed how much room I have left to improve.
BJ: You also made an appearance on the Zwei Null Podcast, what was that like?
SS: It was actually an awesome experience to be on the TLG podcast. It was a bit surreal to be talking with people like Jaggerous, Spyro, and Ryan all of whom I’ve known as large parts of the Gwent community for quite some time now.
BJ: I am happy to hear that. What can people expect from you next month?
SS: Well next month is the beginning of the Gwent competitive off-season so grinding ladder won’t be a priority for me like it was in previous seasons. However, I’ll keep an eye out for any community tournaments/leagues that come up in the following months.
BJ: I like the commitment. And what message would you give to the supporters of BG?
SS: Thanks for supporting BG! It’s awesome to have an audience of people who encourage us in our competitive and content endeavors!
