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 Synergy, you are the last person in line after Sawyer. How would you reflect on the year 2021?
SynergyGod3773: 2021 Was clearly a rough year for most of the world, myself included. I endured a COVID-19 infection, a heartbreak, and even some family drama. But professionally it was my best year yet. While I was not as competitive in Gwent in 2021 I made additional friends that found a home with Bandit Gang, we setup two awesome tournaments which were the 2nd Annual Duel of Dogs Tournament and the Charity tournament in association with ShupeTV.
BJ: You have been involved as our pro team manager this year. How do you look back at this journey?
SG: Last year’s journey as pro manager was very enriching. I got to know a lot of our competitive players well. I even got to compete against JSN991 in one of the Kreve leagues this year and he kicked the crap out of me which was good moment to see one of our players take 1st place. Additionally, we had monthly internal tournaments and plenty of friendly competition within the bandit ranks.
BJ: What has it been like to stream on Twitch this year?
SG: My stream schedule was very erratic this year mainly due to real life. I moved from Dallas to Houston and then back to Dallas again. During this five month stretch I was barely able to breathe let alone stream. I have been branching out to stream a little more variety rather than Gwent, but Gwent will always be the core game. I will try to be adhering to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday Stream schedule in the future if possible.
BJ: You have been organizing tournaments for Gwent this year with the team, what was that like?
SG: The tournaments we organized this year were fun but also very frustrating due to the tournament client… well… being the tounament client. This goes for the internal tournaments we setup as well as the public tournaments such as the duel of dogs. I look forward to administrating more tournaments in 2022!
BJ: Is there anything that you would like to do next year?
SG: In 2022 I have a lot of goals, mainly get back in tip top shape again and lay the foundation for my purchasing a house. I have already started on both of these journeys and by the summer time I hope they become a reality.
BJ: Best of luck with that. Do you have any new year’s resolutions?
SG: My only new years resolution is to drop about 15-20 pounds, I know it’s a traditional resolution, but hey… you have to start somewhere.
BJ: Best of luck with that too! Anything you want to say to the reader in anticipation of 2022?
SG: Live life to the fullest, don’t let COVID-19 or any other obstacles hinder your life. Set your own terms and break down those barriers that prohibit you from being the best version of yourself!
BJ: Cheers and happy new year!
