The last time Jens ‚Snute‘ Aasgaard was in a WCS quarter-final was one year ago when he was still playing in America. Now he returned to Europe and reached to Round of 8 in his first attempt. The last six times he played against Mun ‚MMA‘ Seong Won – his opponent in WCS tomorrow – he lost. So before this match might be the last in this WCS season, we took the time to talk with the Norwegian about some more of his „last times“.
What was the last time…
… you bought something special from prize money?
After the Dustin March Madness Showmatch vs Team Acer i bought some new socks at the airport in Sweden. Brand new socks are one of my favorite things.
… you made an embarrassing mistake in an important match?
I managed to lose 15 swarmhost vs MMA in a game on Yeonsu in the Gfinity Elite Division … :/
… you tried a new strategy in a competition that you did not practice before?
The game i played vs MMA qualifies for that ^_^
… you lost an important item?
Hmm … on one of my first travels in esports I lost something very important ~_~ but now I’m more experienced when travelling so I don’t lose stuff.
… you skipped lunch or dinner in favor of Starcraft?
This happens sometimes, I don’t remember the last time though.
… you completely underestimated an opponent?
Can’t recall, usually I overestimate my opponents instead.
… you were on vacation?
I went on a tropical vacation in summer 2010, can’t remember any vacations after that. I always grind and practice in combinations with my travels so it’s not 100 percent vacation in the same way.
… you had a hard time sleeping prior to an upcoming match?
Usually I don’t sleep very well, it’s a bit random and not because of upcoming matches.
… you read Reddit/YouTube/TL-comments about yourself?
I read some comments after WCS, it’s always nice to read compliments from people watching the games.
… you went to the cinema?
Went to the movies with CJ Entus, this was in November 2013 🙂
… you really hated a specific unit or race in Starcraft?
No particular unit can be annoying, only combinations.
… you admired a korean player for his skill?
I haven’t watched that many Zerg games from recent tournaments but i was impressed by ForGG in the Acer Teamstory Cup a few days ago.
… played Dance Dance Revolution? (Note: Snute was norwegian champion once)
I don’t remember, maybe a few months?
… you thought about quitting Starcraft?
Before new year’s 2014, fortunately not since then ^^
