Interview with Found Em (No comments)
It's saturday night in Dallas, 3:30am. Rapha just won the stage match against Evil, and everyone is celebrating and enjoying the end of Quakecon 2015.
I get the chance to sit down on the interview couch, my fellow audio recorder at hand, and chat with Rapha, Clock and Zero4. They are the core of team Found Em, who had gone through an incredible series of events (and lineups) leading up to this tournament.
At first I thought of this as a short interview, touching a specific topic, but we end up staying there for about one full hour, and going over the whole story of their line up, how it changed and why.
- February: Dahang's offer
- March: The Br1ck Attempt
- April: Sparks and the Twitch Scam
- May: Whaz and Break's Poaching
- June: Vijal, Viju, Stermy, Carnage and Psygib
About Team Break:
Clock: So, I guess the moral of this, the point of making this interview, was Sparks. Sparks scammed everyone. He scammed twitch, he scammed everyone who donated to him. He blatantly lied, about taking donation for a flight when he very well knew that was not going to pay for one. And then it turned out with him never booking one, despite telling everyone he did. He sent a lot of mixed messages to people. People were questioning what he was going to do with his donations now that he wasn’t on our team. He re-iterated that he had booked his flight and we know for a fact that he had not. He had a wedding coming up, and we are pretty confident he used that money toward that.
About Team Break:
Clock: After what happened with Break, with Whaz leaving and joining them, we decided that we were very angry with them and we were not going to play them. If they did this to us, we are not going to give them their only chance to practice and to play competitive. We held to that until the event, and when we came here honestly our number one team goal was to make sure Break did not win a penny. And we accomplished it.
