At Bandit Gang, the end of the year means the end of year interviews. All members are put to the test one by one about the events of the past year that shaped them. Private as well as business. In these interviews in which no mince of words will be stated, no taboos exist, sometimes harsh words are used and where you get a nice insight into the soul life of the interviewee.
Babyjosus: Welcome Hawg, you are the next in line after Ithlinne! How would you reflect on the year 2021?
Hawgplex: I enjoyed this year a lot. I got better at card games, bought a new house with my Fiance, and got a new job.
BJ: Gratz! And what has it been like to compete in Gwent this year?
H:I was not able to spend as much time as I would’ve liked during some seasons this year, but overall learning a lot and placing top 500/playing in leagues has been a fun time. My best finish was in Kreve league season 2 (top 10), and a few members from the pro team prepped for the league a lot with me. JSN ended up winning the whole thing and Synergy finished on the podium, so overall that was a fun league experience in particular.
BJ: You also recently started playing Story Book Brawl, how are you enjoying that?
H: I am enjoying this game a lot. I am playing in my first Mythic qualifier this weekend (12/18). I am hoping to take this first experience and turn it into a good year competitively.
BJ: Is there anything (else) that you would like to do next year?
H: I would like to win an official or community SBB tournament.
BJ: Good luck with that! Do you have any new year’s resolutions?
H: Drink less coffee.
BJ: Be like me and just drink 1 coffee after lunch! Anything you want to say to the reader in anticipation of 2022?
H: Stay healthy.
BJ: Cheers and happy holidays!
