Interview with thund

What do you think it is that makes this game unique to this very day?

It's the fighting system. I don't know of any other game that offers a similar experience like JKA: you need timing, movement, aim, understanding of your opponent etc, and you need to focus every second. All that creates a very intense, unique atmosphere.

What do you enjoy the most about jka?

In a game like Counter Strike, you can shot someone and it's over, you could be camping somewhere and he doesn't even get the chance to react to it or to defend himself. In JKA, that's different, and that's probably what I like the most about it. There is no easy way out, you have to face your opponent, and really beat him. And it is the basic hits that control the game, not some super special combo moves. That way you get a game that has the potential for both some very worth seeing fights and a competitive scene. And then there is all those players you basicly grow up with, makes it alot more than just a game.

What is it that you think other players connect to your name?

I have never played too many ESL matches so they sure don't remember me for any great achievements. I guess some of the newer player know me because I trained them or helped them out. Apart from that, probably fairness, loyality and wisdom lol.

Who do you think has the biggest chances to win the tournament?

Hard to say, as I cannot judge how good the old players are going to be that just came back to JK:JA. If this was single only, I'm sure hell could win this, but it's not. Till and rzr have shown several times that they can win these kind of tournaments, and from what I can tell, they are both in shape. But I'm sure that Raziel can get very far, too. We shall see.

What sets you apart from the other players in the tournament?

I'm not a great 1on1 player, so not too much I guess:P Before I left to the US, I think my hit was as good as it can get, timing and aim wise, and certainly the best clean hit around next to Hell. Right now I'm far from being on that form, and my delay is alot higher than back then. I still know a thing or two though, so I'll just do my best.

What are your plans for the future with jka?

To keep playing it. I don't plan on quitting anytime soon. I might actually try to be really competitive for once and make myself a name, 1on1 and whatnot. We'll see.

What are your thoughts on basejka.com?

It is nice to see that people in our community have the dedication, vision and capabilities to pull something like this off from scratch. I hope it gets the support it deserves, and can establish itself as something that revitalizes JKA.

What would you wish for in the future?

To see the old players that came back for this tournament stay, and to have even more of the old players join them in their comeback.

Who would you like to see coming back the most?

Icarus, Radonis and Battousai.
