We caught up with Vincent, the leader of g.bust, outside LanLab Online (Ginza Plaza) after they lost 16-3 to cG team 2 during the second week of WCG Cybercafe Preliminaries despite a spirited effort to push back cG in the 2nd half of the match. A clan to look out for in the coming months.
Let’s start with an introduction. Who are you, and what clan are you from?
I’m Vincent Gay (L!QU!DSN@KE), team leader of G.Bust. My team members are Royson Tan (F l a v o u r), Shaun Chiang (LimitedGear), Lionel Ang (Mecha) and Joshua Lim (F!rEsToRm).
How long has your team been playing Counter-Strike: Source together? Did your team also play Counter-Strike together?
We played Source for about 1 week before joining in the competition but we’ve been playing Counter-Strike for the past 2 years.
One week! It is definitely a very short time to bring a team together and play well as a team. How did you do it?
Well, we all are school mates at Kuo Chuan Presbyterian High, so it was very easy to team up. Since we all played the older versions of the game, we pretty much just had to practice.
How did your team prepare for the WCG preliminaries?
We played after school and whenever we were free in public servers from home.
Sorry about your straight loss in the first round, what was your reaction?
I expected to at least go to the 2nd round but we realized that we did not have enough time to train enough to tackle the established clan (cG Team 2) in the first round but we did put up a decent fight against them.
What did you think of the WCG preliminaries this year?
No comment as we have never played in last year’s WCG.
Have you ever taken part in any other competitions?
We took part in Republic Polytechnic’s Lan War 2005.
Do you see professional gaming as a possible career path? Would your team consider going professional?
If we get sponsorship and able to work together as a team then it’s a yes.
