End of Year Interview 2020 ZigZak_Guy: ‘I actually hesitated when I joined the team’

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, welcome ZZ. You are one of the first streamers that joined us and are the rap god of Team Bandit Gang. How have you experienced 2020?

ZigZak_Guy: For me 2020 was a very strange year. I don’t want to say it’s a bad year, but it’s also not that great either. A lot of things have happened in my life and some of them were affected by Covid-19. But I don’t really want to go deep into that topic. In terms of Gwent and streaming in general its kinda going slow for me this year. Even though I managed to reach some of the goals like, 1k Followers on Twitch, 1k Subs on Youtube and joining Gwent Partner etc, I still feel like I can do so much more on creating interesting content. Maybe I am just used to 4 expansions in 2019 for Gwent and this year that has changed and it just feels way too slow.

BJ: Yeah, I get you. I haven’t played for months this year because there was no new cards and they even skipped a month on patching the game. We will have to see what 2021 has in store for Gwent. Speaking of Gwent, you joined Team Bandit Gang as one of the first streamers for Gwent, how have you been enjoying the team so far? 

ZZ: I really enjoy watching this team grow and I think for 1 year this team has really grown so much. We have so many amazing and talented members and team managers. Everyone is so nice to each other and doing a very great job promoting and supporting the team. And just to be honest with you, I actually hesitated when I joined the team a year ago. It was when we only had 2-3 members, but since then I really feel proud to be a part of this team and I can see so much potential in this team for many years to come.

BJ: I am glad you did choose for BG in the end because you are one of our biggest streamers now which I love to see. And what was your funniest moment on stream this year ZZ?

ZZ: Not sure which one is my funniest moment on stream this year (Don’t really remember), but what I can share with you is my most epic moment of 2020, and it’s when I got featured in Dandelion Show #146 on my performance against KungfooRabbit on top 16 Gwent Partner Tournament. The clip is hilarious that’s all I can tell you.

BJ: I have seen that one and I would definitely recommend it to people. And on a more serious note. I know you are working hard to make Gwent in Thailand more popular, could you elaborate why you do that?

ZZ: The reason that I work on this project is I can see so much potential an opportunity for Gwent to be popular in Thailand. People really enjoy playing games on phone around here, one of the biggest game in Thai community right now is ROV and HS which are both Mobile game. I feel like if I can make Gwent more popular in Thailand it will be a big hit for my Streamer career and I can use this opportunity to grow my channel even more in the future as well.

BJ: You are being very candid about it haha. And you became a coach for the coaching program this year, what made you decide to become a coach and what would you like to achieve next year as a coach?

ZZ: I did not look into the coaching program that much so far this year due to the coaching session price is still a bit too high so it is a quite difficult to attract customer/new player, but what I would like to accomplish is be able to teach some new players who interested to be good at deck building, be able to make correct in-game decision and read each Meta by themselves.

BJ: Well, for anyone that wants to get some coaching from you they can check the coaching page on our website. And is there anything else that you would like to do next year?

ZZ: For me Gwent will still be my number one priority when comes to Streaming and Youtube contents, but I also would want to do more variety stream, learn about video editing and create more interesting Youtube contents. Cyberpunk 2077 will be one of them.

BJ: Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that I am eager to play as well. Do you have any new year’s resolutions?

ZZ: I’m not sure, not really have anything in my mine right now. Eat Healthy/Go to the Gym? Just kidding. Maybe arranging a successful Subathon or trying something new on stream. Making a successful Youtube video sounds pretty good too.

BJ: You could also do a Simpathon, KingDenpai knows all about that 😉 And is there anything that you want to say to the reader in anticipation of 2021?

ZZ: I know that 2020 is a very rough year for many people due to Covid-19 and other problem, but I’m sure that 2021 will be a better year for everyone as well. We managed to survive 2020 from the start to the end and what I want to say is don’t lose your hope.
