As someone who's given 50+ interviews of players for esports, this is the biggest joke of an interview I've ever seen. You don't cross ex-teammates, and if you do you'd better have some damn good reasoning behind it. It's not about mainstreaming the sport, if anyone has a history of slamming others, it destroys others willness to approach, or accept them. Asking questions like "does god hat Thomas?" Is also a very quick way to destroy your credibility.
the thing I've learned with rental guns and fields
It's not what comes out, its the fact that many of them refuse to replace their entire rental fleet.
Few fields (if any) will replace their rental fleets, I've seen it happen once in 8 years of playing, I've seen guns added, never a complete replacement set. But then again that's not what their going for, they're marketing towards new fields just opening up, along with the very low end players, who'd likely be in the spyder/98/kaos range, where this would actually do quite well, considering most players in that range just want something that'll shoot. Only thing that has me worried is with the incredible amount of wear and tear that rental guns go under, shouldn't that barrel sock come off fairly quickly? Also the absence of steel braid in favor of regular macro line isn't good for rentals. Overall it looks great though, really hope to see renters using these on the field.
