CS:GO Sponsorship request

Recommended Posts

Before I start I want to show you why you should be interested in picking up a CS:GO team. As of right now it is the 2nd most played game on STEAM. Reaching over 100K players in early January. This PCGAMER article explains how http://www.pcgamer.com/2014/03/25/valve-explains-how-csgo-became-the-second-most-played-game-on-steam/

So not only do we have this game on the rise and more and more people loving it. The game has majors most recently at EMS Katowice for 250,000$ and before that Dreamhack Winter for 250,000$. There is no doubt this game is the most popular FPS game in the wolrd right now for PC. Just look at the numbers from opening weekend until now. And below this is the answers to the sponsorship questions.

What is the team's next event online? LAN?

 

       We are currently playing in ESEA-im attending Socal Revival LAN #2 in 2 weeks and possibly the Las Vegas RGN tournament in July. As well as an Austin Texas LAN also in july. Playing in the GamingGrids Season 1 also will be playing in CEVO next season.

 

If you've been sponsored before, who was your best sponsor? Why?

 

       I've been sponsored by a number of teams over the years. But most people know me as playing for vVv during my COD4 years. I was with vVv from August 2009 till about July/August of 2012.

 

Why are you no longer with them?

 

       COD4 was dying and I had real life obligations to attend to. Now that I have everything in my personal life set. Have properly adjusted to CS:GO. Im once again looking to represent them.

 

What was your worst sponsor? Why?

 

       MoB Gaming.... and MoB G0DF4TH3R do I need to explain anymore?

 

What do you hope to achieve with your team?

 

       I enjoy playing with my team and I'm glad we are progressing as well as we are now. I plan on taking this team to Main next season and maybe even Invite. All while attending as many LANs as possible.

 

Who do you see as your toughest competition?

 

       We take all teams seriously and play them as they are the best team in the game. Just so that we dont underestimate anyone.

 

What do you think the team needs to improve on the most?

 

       We need to improve on our teamwork and our communication. While it is already good its going to take even more practice and time to get us to the next level so we can react without thinking. Need to call what we see, what we kill, and what we want to do more during mid round. If we do that I see us improving enough to compete with the best teams in NA.

 

What are your short term goals for the team? Long term?

 

       Short term goals are to make ESEA-main this season. Long term is of course Invite and placing well at all LANs we attend.

How long have you been playing competitively? 
12 years, I started actively competing in Tribes, moved onto Medal of Honor, before finally landing on Call of Duty where I made my way up the ranks to CAL-Invite.  Played at the highest ranks in CoD 1 and 2, and CAL-P in CS 1.6 before a long hiatus.
 
How many hours during the week do you play your title? 
Probably about 20-40, depending on our schedules.
 
How many hours during the week do you dedicate towards reviewing game play and major tournaments?  
2-6, more if international events are in progress.  Who doesn't like to nerd up a stream?
 
What are your latest tournament results?
Currently playing ESEA Intermediate season 16, and competed at SoCal Revival.  We are also looking at competing in CEVO and GamingGrids.
 
What is your next online event? LAN?
We play ESEA-IM twice a week, and are attending SoCal Revival #2 on May 2nd-3rd.
 
Are you shy around people you don't know?
No, I've often been the most outspoken person on the team and done many interviews for my previous teams.
 
If you've been sponsored before, who was your best sponsor?
United5, because they followed through on hardware contracts and providing funding and logistics to attend events.  I also played for Cyberglobe, Pandemic, Shockwave, and Check-Six.
 
Why are you no longer with them?  
United5 is no longer an organization, but I've kept in touch with many of my teammates and many of us still actively play together.  I also took a lengthy break to finish my BSSE degree.
 
What do you hope to achieve as a player for vVv Gaming?  I would like to do what I've always done, move up and compete at the highest level the American scene has to offer.  My twin brother and longtime teammate, the legendary Jason "crzg" Pielemeier also once donned the vVv jersey and I'd like do be able to do the same.
 
Who do you see as your toughest competition?  
Ourselves.  I think if everyone has the same work ethic, dedication, and philosophy we can turn some heads not only in IM, but in Main and beyond.  Nobody who gave their best regretted it.
 
Do you create written or video content?  
No, I would like to stream and create content when my internet is upgraded.
 
What does being a professional gamer mean to you? 
 Being able to represent an organization and what it stands for, and bring the value and passion back to the organization.  I believe every player wants to be able to don a jersey they are proud of, and perhaps create a new following.
 
How do you think you can improve as a player? As a member of the eSports community?
Well as Bill Russel said, “the most important measure of how good a game I played was how much better I’d made my teammates play", so I'd like to continue evolving with my team.  Personally I dedicate a lot of time to finding tactics and technique's my team can use ingame.  In-game I'd like to continue to improve on my movement and aim the most.  As a member of the eSports community and former ESEA instructor I'd like to be more endearing to  newcomers to the game, especially in the ESEA community.  I haven't figured it out yet, but I'd like to create content beyond just the typical streaming/blogs.

Where do you guys currently stand on the ESEA ladder? Any chance at qualifying for the next LAN Playoffs?

Not currently Robz the LAN is only for Invite level only and they only let 1 team in per season. We are working towards that and that is of course the end goal. And that is sometimes a long road without hijacking a roster.  We will be attending other NA LANs with top teams attending such as SoCal,Vegas, and Irongaming LAN.

How long have you been playing competitively? 
About 6 years I played when CSS first came out as a pubber for a few years. Getting my first taste of competitive play in about 2009. After making main for a few seasons I relaxed for a bit and awaited the release of CS:GO and now here we are!
 
How many hours during the week do you play your title? 
I personally play the most on the team I think. Usually somewhere between 30 and 40 hours a week beyond our scrim time.
 
How many hours during the week do you dedicate towards reviewing game play and major tournaments?  
I watch every major cast of international tournament when I can. I also watch demos and review my play about an hour every night or so.
 
What are your latest tournament results?
Currently playing ESEA Intermediate season 16, and competed at SoCal Revival.  We are also looking at competing in CEVO and GamingGrids.
 
What is your next online event? LAN?
We play ESEA-IM twice a week, and are attending SoCal Revival #2 on May 2nd-3rd.
 
Are you shy around people you don't know?
Sometimes I can be just depends in the mood I am in. A lot of times I just get in the zone and just frag.
 
If you've been sponsored before, who was your best sponsor?
Don't think I have ever had a professional sponsor. I've worn tags for a few teams but none that I thought were legit sponsors and could help us grow.
 
Why are you no longer with them?  
N/A
 
What do you hope to achieve as a player for vVv Gaming?
It would be a great experience to finally get to represent something bigger than myself. I would love the chance to prove myself to vVv and help them grow as much as they help us grow!
 
Who do you see as your toughest competition?  
Really like everyone said.. Just ourselves we can be great at times but sometimes we need to calm down and just focus and remember the basics. It helps to be playing with some players with extensive experience playing FPS games at a top level that can help bring us back down when we need to.
 
Do you create written or video content?  
Can make logos and other things in photoshop but thats about it.
 
What does being a professional gamer mean to you? 
Being able to represent not only your sponsors on a top level, but also even representing your country. A lot of international events has people back their countries teams. I would love to have tons of North Americans cheering us on at a major tournament one day.
 
How do you think you can improve as a player? As a member of the eSports community?
As a player the only way to improve is to constantly play and play and play. But not just being in the game and shooting things. Working on timings and what the other team is doing to counter your play. Being aware of your mistakes and your oppurtunities to improve yourself to be the most consistent gamer. As a community member I'm not sure how I can grow but thats where I hope I can learn something from such a great organization like vVv.
