"最重要是获得经验" - TRULS专访

  e-Stars Seoul 2011 Beat IT锦标赛赛前采访仍在进行,继Lurppismarkeloff专访后,今天我们联系到北美新势力UMX.us俱乐部第一狙击手Chris "TRULS" Navratil,请Chris向我们介绍一下并不被人熟知的UMX.us战队每个人的具体分工?在洛杉矶训练基地如何度过每一个训练日?对于EG的人员变动有何看法以及期望此次韩国之行将有怎样的收获呢?

你好,TRULS!首先向中国的观众们介绍下自己吧。

  嘿,我的名字叫Chris "TRULS" Navratil,我在北美打职业已经两年了。我来自堪萨斯的Shawnee(对,我听多了关于绿野仙踪的neta),现在我和我的队友一起住在加州的Corona,我喜欢这个地方。

说说看你的队友们都是扮演什么角色的吧。

  首先从Ric "inertia" Bundy开始,他是我们CT方独守一区的人物,也是我们的场上队长。最近我们刚刚更换过阵容,因为dizzaman不想离家太远,所以inertia接手了。接下来是Kyle "flowsick" Mendez,他基本是游走的类型,因为他有很好的意识,也是我们队的Frag收割机。Ricky "slip" Cohen是我们的"young gunner",因为他比大家都要小一些。Slip是我们做T时的突破收,也是CT方的主要枪手,大概是因为他的风格很激进吧。还有就是Bryan "buskey" Buskey,我们的新队员,他是很稳重的队员,可以说是队伍的“地刺(Lurker)”,他总是能给敌人以致命一击。最后我自己是狙击手,我的风格应该也是比较激进的。

umxusUMX.us的队员们都住在LA附近的训练基地,你们日常的训练是怎样的?游戏之余又做些什么?

  日常的训练从周日到周四,从中午12点醒来开始,首先先去健身房折腾一个小时,一两点的时候回来吃饭,四点开始训练。因为有新队员,我们很多战术和设置都要有所变动,我们通常进服后不断强化自己的战术,直到找到有对手能破解我们。我们经常去死亡服,看很多自己和别人的demo,从中发现我们的问题。通常在11点到午夜才结束。现在因为有一项重大的赛事,我们每周训练七天,不过其他队伍通常周五周六都不怎么玩,因此我们要么去死亡服,要么跑图演练战术。游戏之余,我们几个超过21岁的会去酒吧,或者去看场电影什么的。

Buskey来了将近两个月了,你觉得你们的新阵容同ESEA线下季后赛相比有什么不同?

  我们的新阵容把整个队伍的风格都改变了。季后赛之后,我们看了自己的demo,发现我们在比赛中交流和配合都有很多问题,我们正想做出修正时dizzaman说他不想住在加州了,这让我们的实力有所退步。不过我认为现在的阵容要比以前强悍。Buskey带来了一些新的理念,让我们变得更加沉稳。Dizzaman尽管不喜欢,不过他的队长当得很好,现在inertia接手后,我觉得他在阅读对手的动向上做得很好,很快就能适应其他队伍的风格。

现在在ESEA-Invite你们的战绩是7-2,仅仅输给了Full-Gaming和backfire,你觉得你们的表现如何?季后赛又什么目标?

  考虑到人事变动,我觉得现在的战绩还说得过去。很明显我们还有提高的余地,我们的nuke太弱了,简直是最弱的地图,我们就这张图输给了fullgaming,那次失利之后我们重新作出了调整,希望能带来些惊喜。我们季后赛的目标当然是冠军,不过现在的重点是马上要来的e-Stars,在UMX为我们做出了那么多付出之后,我们非常渴望能在国际舞台有所表现,让UMX感到骄傲。

umxusEG最近用pauLy和hero代替了fRod和Storm,你如何看待EG的新阵容?他们能和欧洲的强队一争雌雄吗?

  EG的新队员不太熟悉,没有机会交手。不过从阵容上看,他们非常强,hero和pauLy都是个人能力很突出的,如果我是EG的fans,心里早就因为各种理由把之前的阵容换过很多次了。我希望他们能代表美国,我会为他们加油,我也希望他们也为我们加油。是的,我认为他们的能力很强,唯一的问题是需要大量的时间来磨合。

有传闻说你的前队友dizzaman将和fRod、Storm、Xp3、hiko组建新的coL,你觉得他们有实力同EG和你们相抗衡吗?

  我不知道会不会是真的,不过我曾经和xp3以及dizzaman共事过,他们是很好的选手,而又有经验丰富的fRod和Storm加以提携,无疑他们将是EG和我们最大的敌人。

UMX.us将和EG一道代表北美出战e-Stars,你们如何准备的?(采访时EG尚未表示退出e-Stars)

  现在UMX的训练屋处于战备状态,我们把CS的时间提到最大化,一周七天都训练,尽管周五周六没有什么对手。其他还要看看特定的demo,想想如何去比赛,以备不时之需。

大多数UMX.us的选手没有国际赛事的经验,你觉得他们会如何处理面对欧洲和亚洲强队所带来的巨大压力?你们在首尔的目标是什么?

  我们的确没有EG那样频繁在国际赛事中曝光,不过我们还是充满信心。Inertia曾经参加过Dallas的Arbalet Cup,其他人也和mTw交过手。至于压力到真没有什么,我们就是被低估的队伍。期待我们有上佳表现吧。至于目标当然是胜利,不过前六已经可以接受了。前途是光明的,道路是曲折的,获得经验是最重要的。

UMX的两支队伍都会参赛,你们之前有没有什么交流?

  基本没有,主要是没有机会吧。不幸的是,我们没有什么机会来观看他们的比赛,他们在最后的期限前才参加的e-Stars,我认为他们在首尔还是会让很多人惊讶的。

UMX接下来有什么计划?会参加哪些国际赛事?

  UMX接下来是ESEA的线下决赛,WCG,也许还有ESL的赛事。现在主要是e-Stars,接着才是其他的赛事。也许还会参加一个欧洲的赛事也说不定。我喜欢去欧洲打CS。

还有什么对中国的fans说的?

  谢谢你们的投票和支持。我们非常感激,希望能让你们觉得这次赛事非常刺激。还有我们希望能参加ESL的广州挑战赛。要感谢UMX和ZOWIE给我们的机会,我们会让你们的投入物有所值,让你们感到骄傲的!

English Version
Hello TRULS, Let’s start things off by introducing yourself to the Chinese audience.

  Hey, my name is Chris "TRULS" Navratil. I've been playing Counter-Strike at a Professional level for about 2 years now in the USA scene. I'm originally from Shawnee, Kansas (yes I hear alot of the Wizard of OZ jokes) and of course I am now living in Corona, California with the rest of my teammates and loving it here.

As the leader of the UMX.us team, would you mind using one sentence to describe the role and play-style of each player on your team?

  I'll start off introducing the rest of my teammates with Ric "inertia" Bundy, hes our solo site CT side player and also our Ingame Leader. We recently had to change lineups because dizzaman didn't want to live away from his family, so Inertia stepped up and calls the Strats for us now. Next up is Kyle "flowsick" Mendez, he mainly plays rotator on CT sides because of his good ingame awareness and he is also considered our team's "mad fragger". Next is Ricky "slip" Cohen, hes been called our team's "young gunner" because hes a couple years younger than most of the rest of our team. Slip is our T side entry fragger and our CT side main site rifler and probably has the most aggressive playstyle on the team. Then theres Bryan "buskey" Buskey, our newest member, who has a slower and more thought out play style. Buskey is our team "lurker" who works a side of the map by himself and gets crucial kills on opponents rotating. And lastly, I am the team sniper, I would have to say that my play style is aggressive.

We know that the UMX.us team members all live and practice in a house near LA area. What is usually the schedule like for your players? What do you guys usually do together off-gaming?

  The usual schedule Sunday through Thursday for us is to wake up around like 12pm (noon) then a couple of us go to the gym for an hour or so. We usually get back home between 1pm and 2pm, then we make some lunch and prepare for practice at 4pm. With our new team member we have had to change alot of our strats and setups so we usually go into a server and iron out our strategies until we can find an opponent to scrimmage against. We all death match alot and go over demos of us and demos of others to see what mistakes we made. Our day usually ends around 11pm or Midnight. Right now since we have a huge tournament coming up, we are playing 7 days a week, but alot of other teams don't play on Fridays or Saturdays so its usually just us death matching or dry running strats/coming up with new strats. Outside of gaming, the ones of us that are over 21 go out to the local bars, or we all go see a movie or something.

  It has been two months since you guys bringing in buskey in the place of dizzaman, in what aspect do you think the new line-up is different from the old one we saw in last ESEA LAN playoffs?
Our new lineup has changed our overall team play style alot since dizzaman's departure and buskey's arrival. After ESEA LAN we watched our demos and noticed alot of problems that we were having with our teamplay and communications, we were ready to fix them and then dizzaman told us that he wouldn't be staying in California with us, so that kind of set us back a bit. But I believe that this current lineup is stronger than our previous one. Buskey brings some good ingame knowledge as well as a slower play style which we needed. Dizzaman was also our ingame leader before he left, which he didn't like doing, so now that Inertia has stepped into the role I feel like he does an amazing job of reading the other teams and reacting/adapting to the other team's play style.

Your team is currently 7-2 in ESEA-Invite with losses to Full-Gaming and backfire, how do you think of your team’s performance so far? What is your goal in the upcoming LAN playoffs?

  Considering all the shakeups and changes the we've had to deal with I feel like our 7-2 start in the season of invite is very good. Obviously there is room for improvement, our de_nuke was very very weak, probably our weakest map, and so we lost to fullgaming on it. Since that loss we have completely retooled our nuke and hope to surprise some people in the upcoming tournaments. Our goal for the upcoming LAN playoffs are to take 1st place, but right now our complete thoughts are on E-STARS. We really want to make UMX proud and do our best in the international scene for them after all they have done for us.

EG made two roster changes recently in bringing pauLy and hero for fRod and Storm. How do you think of the new EG’s line-up? Do you think they can compete with the Europe’s finest with those fresh additions?

  The new EG roster is brand new and therefore I haven't really gotten to play against them, but on paper they look to be a really strong team. Hero and pauly are both really amazing fraggers, the one thing I would be concerned about if I was an EG fan would be that this roster of players has generally made tons of roster changes for various reasons in the past. Regardless I hope they represent the USA well, I know I will be rooting for them as I hope they will be for us. And yes I think that they have the skill to compete with any team, the only problem would have to be the amount of time they play and practice.

It is rumored that your former teammate dizzaman is in the new coL project together with fRoD,Storm, Xp3 and hiko. Do you think this line-up can challenge the existing top teams like EG and you guys?

  I don't know whether this lineup is happening or not. But I've been on teams with xp3 and dizzaman and I know that they are excellent players, and when you throw experienced players like frod and storm, I have no doubt that they will be competing with us and EG for the top spot in the USA.

UMX.us will be representing the continent of America along with EG in the upcoming E-Stars. How are you guys preparing for the event?

  Its crunch time at the UMX house, we have all been putting in maximum CS hours for this event so that we are all in top notch form. We are playing 7 days a week for this event, even though friday and saturday are light days due to the lack of quality teams that play on those days. As for other types of preparation, we are lightly skimming over certain team's demos that we think we might play, so we have some idea of what to expect.

Most UMX members are relatively inexperienced on the international stage. How do you think you guys will deal with the pressure of competing against top teams from Europe and Asia? What will be your goal in Seoul?

  Its true that most of us haven't gotten the international exposure that players from EG have gotten, but still we have high hopes for this tournament. Inertia was one of the top rated players at the Dallas Arbalet Cup and other players on the team have had a little experience playing teams like MTW. As far as pressure, there is very little pressure on our shoulders, we are coming in as the huge underdogs. So look for us to hopefully have some nice upsets, as far as a goal I would have to say that we are obviously hoping to win it, but a top 6 finish would be acceptable as well. We know that we are going to have a hard road ahead of us, but we look forward to the experience.

We know that your Asian partner team, UMX.tw, will also attend the E-Stars tournament. Is there any communication between the American team and the Taiwanese team? How do you think they would do in Korea?

  There is little to no communication between us and the Taiwanese team, mostly because there is no way to really get in touch with them I suppose. Unfortunately there aren't very many chances for us to watch them play besides at that international tournament they went to at the last minute a couple months ago. And they surprised alot of people at that event I think, so I think the chance is definitely there for them to do well at E-STARS.

What will be UMX’s plan for the rest of the year? Will UMX attend more international tournaments after E-STARS?

  UMX's plans for the rest of the year are ESEA LAN finals, WCG, and maybe this ESL tournament. Right now its hard to look past anything but E-STARS, but those are the other main tournaments that we will be attending. Also there might be a European tournament thrown in somewhere later in the year, nothing is for sure yet. But I would love to go to Europe to compete in CS.

Any last comments to your Chinese fans?

  To all our fans out there, thank you for the votes and support that you've given us. We really appreciate it and hope to make this event an exciting event to watch. Also we hope to make our way to the ESL Global Challenge in Guangzhou, China. I would also like to thank UMX and ZOWIE for giving us this amazing opportunity, we realize the chance you took on us and we hope to make you proud!
