End of Year Interview 2021 Hawgplex: ‘I would like to win an official or community SBB tournament’

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!

End of Year Interview 2020 Hawgplex: ‘In the coming year I am hoping to buy my first home and finally have my wedding’

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:  I don’t know you that well, could you tell me something about yourself?

Hawgplex: Simplifying my life is tough, but if I had to, I would say hiking with my dog/fiance, playing video games, and reading are my favorite things to look forward to during an average week.

BJ: And how would you reflect on the year 2020?

HP: I think the only word that comes to mind is crazy. Here’s to hoping that as a whole we all learned something from 2020’s mess, and my thanks always goes out to everyone on the front lines fighting covid.

BJ: You joined Team Bandit Gang as an Academy Players this year after 1 month trial. How are you enjoying the team so far? 

HP: So far the team has been helpful and chill. Overall, I would say I joined the best situation for me, and the past few weeks have confirmed this.

BJ: And what was it like to compete in season 2 of Gwent Masters under the BG banner?

HP: Overall, I did not compete much under the banner, but look forward to doing so in the coming season.

BJ: You mention upcoming season. What do you want to achieve in season 3 of Gwent?

HP: In season 3 of Gwent, I would like to get back to my beta gwent level and start placing in the top 200 at the end of seasons. From there, if it happens, we will see what happens.

BJ: Is there anything that you would like to do outside of Gwent next year?

HP: In the coming year I am hoping to buy my first home and finally have my wedding (its been on pause with covid).

BJ: Oh congrats! Any big plans for the wedding?

HP: We kind of scrapped everything honestly, may just get our parents together and have them with us and just do it, or wait for the vaccines to be all good.

BJ: Do you have any new year’s resolutions?

HP: My new years resolution: learn more about dogs.

BJ: Anything you want to say to the reader in anticipation of 2021?

HP: In 2021, please be smart 🙂
