“It’s crazy to even be here... After over 8 years of playing mobile games, I have a chance to go on stage for the first time. I want to prove that hard work and dedication pay off, that I am still the best at Critical Ops.”

I was going to switch to Fortnite, and quit C-OPS. And then I got invited to Gankstars as a starter, and it was a no-brainer. I want to shut all the haters up who have been telling me I can’t make it. I won’t name who, but those clans that kicked me without giving me a chance... I will DESTROY them this weekend.”

“I don’t know where I would be without video games. Where I grew up, people get into a lot of trouble doing reckless things. I feel I owe my life to gaming, and this is a chance to prove that I can make a career out of it. Step 1: win the LAN. Step 2: grow my brand. Step 3: help those who are young and are going through similar tough situations I lived through.”

“I came here to get my name out there. I’m not getting a lot of respect because I wasn’t an OG player. For a long time, I haven’t been put on the top players list. But I know I belong there. I don’t want just this title; I want all of the titles.”

“In real life, you may be shy and such, but in games I can be whoever I want to be. Games allow me to connect with others like I wouldn’t in real life, to meet people from all over the world. Critical Ops brings so many different people together. If we win this, maybe I can make gaming a full-time thing, and that would mean a lot to me. It’s a dream to have a career by playing.”
