Chatting with JuDaS
With Spain lifting the World Cup and European Cup in quick succession and both wT and Dimego having very good seasons here in Day of Defeat Source, I'm beginning to suspect that there's something in the water of Madrid! Here to discuss his team's fantastic EMS season and third place finish is none other than Alvaro JuDaS Guadano.
Hello JuDaS! Could you briefly introduce yourself and warrior Trooper?
Well Trooper Warrior is a very ancient clan PVD known about ten years now, the founder and current captain is PVD. The vast majority of the players we know of other versions have been playing dod and dod many years, players like crom1, colo, pvd, omega or myself judas. Carl, munxito and Arthas are younger players. Finally we have our great boko who now lives in Argentina. All together we are warrior Trooper.
Well, congratulations are definately in order after playing a fantastic EMS season, but where do you plan to go from here are wT going to continue playing DoDS during the summer?
Thanks! My plans for summer are work, pool, and a little dod :)
But in principle wT would go to inactivity until September due to summer, but some players continued to play so we decided to create a parallel team with some integration between the two.
Before the start of the season you named zeroPoint, Rockit and clutchmasterz as the top three teams in Europe, you must be pleased to prove yourself wrong? What was the secret to your successes against big teams like RCTIC and clutchmasterz?
Much satisfaction and joy! As I said at the beginning of the EMS V they were in my opinion one of the favorites to reach the final. So I'm very happy.
Well, especially team play; we have known each other for some time and we played a lot together. We have also lost games which caused us to learn from mistakes and grow as a team. So especially team play and the experience of each player.
Going into the tournament you added munxito to your lineup and some questioned his place in the EMS, now he's a favourite for EMS MVP. How important was he to your season?
Both munxito as crom1 were very important to get to where we are. Specifically Munxito has adapted very well to our game and knows what we expect from him. I hope people recognize its value and will vote as mvp:)xxx
Looking to the future, with big names like zeroPoint and rockit stepping down from DoDS for at least the summer, you've got to see yourself with the opportunity to become one if not the best teams in Europe. What do you hope to achieve during the summer and in EMS VII?
Well now as we're in summer most of the top teams are inactive but I am sure they will come back in September and if not, a good team will always be born. We are humble and do not want to replace zp, cm or rockit because they are irreplaceable.
Spain has always been a strong force in DoDS, producing some fantastic teams like k1ck, dimego and yourselves as well as a consistantly strong National Team. With the UK, France and Finland recently losing keyplayers to retirement, could the 2011 Nations Cup be Spain's tournament?
Spain will never win a cup nations until there is a union of all Spanish teams, the problem of the Spanish players are proud of some of them or the bad relationship between them. Some can not see beyond his eyes. Pending Spain will join teams doing badly in the Nations Cups. Hopefully I'm wrong.
Thanks JuDaS. Any further comments?
Thank you for this interview and a greeting to all, good summer for all.
