New year, new perspectives, and we're now beginning a new journey in the world of : Reach by picking up former Team Infused line-up.
Halo, being one of the most massive games in terms of popularity on console, is also undoubtedly one of the better competitive titles for the platform, and with it's latest rendition that is Reach, the only way for the game is upwards - with ever increasing numbers of tournaments, leagues, ladders and cups. Given that, the only sensible desicion WesternWolves could have made, was to pick up one of the best teams in the business, the UK side known for their time under the infused tag.
With a mixed bag of experience and raw talent, the newly announced WW.Halo team is here to dominate, and to do so with style. Two of the players are as old school as they get, having been around the scene since the beginning of 2008 and dominating ever since. The others are basically newcomers from other titles, but already with great achivements under their belts. So it happened that the the more experienced MVP and Baxter could see a bright future in BlackJack and Pistol - and they decided to pick them up. Even though they are a new team, they already get along like noone else, judging from their statements, and with great atphmosphere come great expectations - as their goals are to dominate the virtual battlefields on the continent.
“I know I speak for the whole team when I say that we're over the moon to be a part of the LowLandLion's new project. Western Wolves would be a massive opportunity for any team and we are honoured to be the team given the chance. I can't wait to get things rolling at our first event under the Wolves name and I know the other guys feel the same way. We are all seriously excited about being a part of this new project so long may it last!”
Stefan 'MVP' Djordjevic
So it is with great pleasure that we can introduce the WW.Halo team:
Stefan "MVP" Djordjevic
Jack "Baxter" Baxter
Jack "BlackJack" Lewis
Matthew "Pistol" Peat
Hello Stefan. Could you tell us more about yourself and the Halo division of Western Wolves?
MVP: Hey, what's up? I'm Stefan Djordjevic aka MVP, proud captain of the new Western Wolves' Halo team. Completing the roster is Jack 'Baxter' Baxter, Jack 'BlackJack' Lewis and Matthew 'Pistol' Peat.
Which events do the team plan on attending in 2012 and what are your expectations?
MVP: We plan to attend every tournament in the UK and in the rest of Europe, assuming its viable at the time. We know full well that we are good enough to win every tournament on the continent this year so that is what we expect of ourselves. On top of that challenge, we've vowed to make the journey over to the States for MLG on at least one occasion this season where the competition is far greater but the targets would be the same. On top of that we will aim to make an impact, we want people to take notice of the talent on show this side of the Atlantic.
How do you guys get along outside of the game and does it make a difference to your game play?
MVP: Being completely honest, there can't be many teams in any sport in the world that get along as well as we do. We have so much fun whether we're playing or not and it really does show in our teamwork. Everyone is always completely willing to help a team mate out, everyone is always on hand to get someone's head back in the game if it's not going their way, everyone is able to accept blame for mistakes so we can improve and everyone is willing to give credit where credit is due which goes a long way to building momentum. There's never a dull moment if you listen in on our conversations and it makes completing so enjoyable.
The team regularly uploads game-plays to share with other Halo players. What sort of response do you get and do you think you've actually helped lesser teams improve with them?
MVP: We generally get great feedback. I think players eager to learn can sometimes improve more from watching players practice than watching them in tournament games. You can see how a player plays when he or she is most comfortable, at home on their own set-up. Their decision making is usually more consistent and thoughtful so to answer your question, yes I do think our game-plays help teams improve.
Any final shout outs, credits, plug's?
MVP: Oh, plenty! First off I want to give a shout out to my team mates, without them I probably wouldn't be competing any more. I'd like to give a shout out to my beautiful girlfriend, Rox, I love you. I have to give one to Infused; you were great to us and we really enjoyed playing for you guys, thank you. I owe a shout out to the Lion's, for creating the Wolves, such a great idea. I want to give a shout out to the people that I am thankful for, I owe where I am now to these guys; Jools, Ryan, Eddie, Conor, Louis, Alex, Will, Josh and Glen. And finally, I want to give a shout out our brand new sponsor, management and staff; Mad Catz, Birger, Florent, Samo and Alex.
