What was your first game?

This is my home state and it is always a little bit cheaper to go to your home state’s university. Knoxville’s pretty crazy. They call it Knoxvegas where I am from Johnson City, Tennessee. It is not actually that wild, but there is stuff to do. Johnson City, Tennessee, which is about an hour and a half from Knoxville Has about 30.000 residents. Super small town. There may be more cows and livestock than actual people. But a bunch of good folk out there. Yeah. The South for the most part, religion takes a front seat. Everything else comes behind that. Family, community, kin, stuff like that. It started from a really young age. I think my first game was Crash Bandicoot. I started playing StarCraft a lot. I was very good at it. I was Platinum. I was above average. But I started getting that little hint of glory. I might actually be pretty good at video games. Gaming at first was just a hobby for me. But now it is evolved into part of my life almost. He is pretty passionate about the game. He spends a lot of time on that. A lot of time. That is all he really does, to be honest with you. He goes to school and he plays games. – Off you go. –

All right. How do I get this horse to go? It is getting to a point now where it is starting to pay off a little bit. Pretty much every much I am bringing back like a pretty decent sized check now. It is not huge, but it is decent. I think it is awesome that he gets to do that because that is what he likes to do. That is what he is good at it is playing video games for money, essentially. It is really rewarding to a certain extent. I think competition is the biggest part for me. The more you compete, the more you got to keep coming back because it just keeps getting better and better. But I also like having the opportunity to travel and just meeting people really It is great. 90% competition and then 10% oh, yeah, I get to meet Artosis.

How far back does it go right now, because we will have the LED in the back. – The LED sits on the back. The LED sits on the back of the platform. I think people would be surprised at how much goes into building an event like this on the Blizzard side and that is months of preparation. We started the basic planning of this last August. There are really two different teams right now. One is everything you can see here and then there is an entire creative and production team that is the office working really closely in sync. There is a lot of work to be done in graphics, graphics production and the broadcast production and then obviously there are a lot of physical elements still to finish.
