An Interview with: Oliver "orcl" Stubley

Sat 8th Nov 2014 - 12:44pm : General : Gaming

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Oliver "orcl" Stubley, Cazuall Esports's CS:GO team captain. Find out more about Oliver and how he got involved in esports, as well as what he thinks to the UK scene. This is the first part of interview series we will be doing on all of our players accross the organisation to give you, our fans and opportunity to get to know them better! Check out the interview here!

How did you get involved in eSports?

I can’t remember when I made the transition from casual to competitive. I began by playing Counter-strike with friends, playing at first on public and then we just seemed to naturally transition into playing games from IRC. After making a few teams with different combinations of friends, I went my own way and began playing with people I’d never played with before. Eventually most of my friends stopped playing, and I found myself carrying on and improving on my own. After a few years of messing around with casual teams, I decided that I wanted to go to my first LAN event – i35. Since then, I’ve been involved in eSports in many different capacities, including journalism, management, and of course, playing.

What does it take to be a pro gamer today?

Well if you’re asking what it takes to be where I am, I would say I am still far away from being a “pro” gamer. Time, dedication and a great deal of chemistry with your team mates appear to me to be the key to success. It’s a hard craft to master, and for some it probably can never happen. I think it’s a big advantage if you’re willing to put things on hold to practice full time, but that’s not really something that is attainable for even some of the most ambitious players.

What have you sacrificed to get to where you are today?

I have been quite fortunate in that I’ve not actually had to give anything up throughout my time playing competitive counter-strike. Of course there are some nights where you fancy going out for a bit or doing something a bit different, but at times you just have to suck it up and get the practice in. I did have to stop playing for a while to focus on studies a few years back, but now I am in my final year of University and think I have the balance between work, play and socialising sorted.

How popular is eSports in the UK for CS:GO?

I’d say that the game itself is very popular within the UK. There are a great number of people playing the game, enough to have at least a few good teams playing in the scene at any one time. There are a lot of players that just like to lurk around and play in the occasional mix team – which is great when you want to fill up a LAN with good competition – but not so great if you want the UK to have a good representative in Europe. I think the scene just needs a bit more patience and stability, and to do away with some of the more toxic players that exist.

What advice would you give to aspiring gamers who want to be good at CS:GO?

Probably don’t even try. It’s a hard game to get to grips with if you’ve got not experience of FPS or the CS franchise. If you find yourself actually reaching an alright level at the game, then the easiest thing to do is find a group of like-mind individuals and put some time into playing as a team. Start slow, and don’t expect to be beating everyone after your first week.

Where do you see UK eSports five years from now?

Not too far from where it is now. As I said before, instability is a big issue in all UK eSports. We don’t have a top tier representative in any of the big eSports titles. A big mentality change is going to be required if this is going to change any time soon.

Are you excited for I53?

Of course – It’s going to be my first real opportunity to show myself in CS:GO. I’ve not done an awful lot of competing since CS: Source, so on a personal level, I feel I have something to prove. As a team, I think this will be a great experience for us. Being a part of a larger organisation with numerous teams and sponsors present will also be a good experience. This will be the first LAN where a degree of professionalism will be a must!

So thats it for Oliver, our next interview will be with our Call of Duty captain Connor!

    The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, however I actually thought you’d have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could repair in the event you weren’t too busy in search of attention. <a href="http://snapchatapk.info"rel="dofollow">download latest Snapchat mod Hack Apk no root</a>
