After a very long time of inactivity with interviews, Esportactu is back with an encounter with zanZan, the mysterious player competing in almost all the duel competitions for more than a year and a half now. Even though she didn't win any competition yet, she was able to perform pretty well against most of the top players in Europe, and even took maps from opponents such as Cypher, k1llsen or fazz according to QLRanks.
In this interview, we discussed her overall game approach, her background as a player, the way she sees her own style, the community, and various other questions concerning duel, Aerowalk, etc. As usual, the main idea is to give the community a bit more background about a sub-top player which is part of the competiting scene for a long time while remaining in the dark.
You will also find zanZan's gear informations and her config to download in the beginning of the interview. Also, keep your penises in your pants, as there is no picture included :).
Here is an extract of the interview:
Esportactu : You have been playing a lot of games, especially Clan Arena (4,4k) and duels (9,3k). What did you like in these two modes that made you play that much ? Was duel a natural choice for you ?
zanZan : Reason to CA is mainly because I can play with music and not care, but I also tend to hit ridiculous shots in that mode making it quite fun to play. As for duel I have no idea why I am even trying. My patience is too great, and my nerves are catastrophic, so no, it was never natural. [...]

I have had a hard time finding the time to make these kind of interviews for a couple of months now but I think I will be able to provide some content in the near future. Actually, back in the end of 2014, I wanted to interview all important Belarussian players apart from Cypher, that's to say Cyber, madball, clawz, and slimk (at the time he was still playing, and just had a fantasic game vs Cyber on Aerowalk). I sent questions to Cyber a long time ago, but he is quite reluctant to answer it, not sure people would care, etc. The thing is, I'd like to have his answers to prepare the other ones interviews. So, if you are in contact with Cyber, please encourage him to send me his answers because I'm sure his interview will be good and I want to get in touch with others afterwards. Play more Quake !
