Tonight I had the pleasure of interviewing Samuel “Samsc2” KasperekÂ from Complexity GamingÂ (or perhaps ‘affiliated with’ is the better term). He was a very interesting guest, although much of what we talked about was prior and after the broadcast. What we did capture and share was this:
Opening question: “What’s your gaming history?”
Casting and commentating questions
Community organizer questions
General eSports questions
Closing questions and remarks
You can find time links to each section of the interview in the video description on YouTube. Also be sure to follow Sam on Twitter and tune into his Twitch.tv channel. Thanks for watching and if you have any “behind the scenes” guests you think need some airtime, let me know!
Over the past few months I’ve been debating how I want to approach eSports. I officially put the eSports bulletin on hiatus because each episode took hours to make and I didn’t have enough time everyday to get them done. I would like to keep making Behind The Play episodes covering strategy for fans and players, but those take a lot of time per episode and only allow me to publish once-in-awhile. So I began brainstorming other options because I didn’t just want to step away from eSports and be done. So now I present a new series that I think will work out a lot better because it doesn’t require hours and hours of time I don’t have right now. Getting To Know eSports will introduce players, casters, event coordinators, community managers, website owners, and more, to the eSports world through a series of questions that help you get to know the person on a more personal level. Rather than interviews that cover the latest news or tournament results, which there is already plenty of, I wanted to create a more intimate, sit down and get to know someone series. My first guest was Sean “EroSennin” Gough, a StarCraft 2 player from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is currently playing for the Complexity Gaming Academy and I met him in person at a Teh Pwn Gaming CSL StarCraft 2 event in 2011. He’s a great guy and was a fun guest so be sure to check out the interview embedded below, or watch it on YouTube.

I’m always excited to read about Team Fortress 2, having played so many hours of it, so this Friday I’m bringing you, not only a video, but an article to accompany it. It’s an interview with sheep from Team Immunity. I chose this for Friday because it’s a nice long read and the article has two enjoyable videos. I’ll admit that the content and production values aren’t necessarily amazing, but they’re still fun to watch and have good soundtracks. And in the first video, it’s almost worth it just for the scene where the soldier absolutely fails at killing the scout. I laughedÂ heartily. Anyways, this article is courtesy of Cadred.org, an excellent eSports website you should definitely check out!
