Interview with Minene

-Please tell us your impressions.
It was a sudden win, so I’m happy, but I’m very surprised.

-There are various game competitions, but please let us know the criteria for participation.
If you play and think you can’t aim for the championship, I will play. There is no point in appearing if you do not have the confidence to win.

-How long do you usually play games?
It has decreased from before. Even if I do it, it takes about 3 hours a day.

-Are you playing games since childhood?
No, it’s not. When I was in elementary school, I only studied.

-So what made you start the game?
I’m playing the Gundam VS series, but I’ve always loved anime, and I was addicted to a work called Gundam SEED. After that, when I went to a game center with a friend at school, I knew about the VS series because the friend was playing, and when I played with it I was addicted.

-Is there anything you would like to convey to readers or viewers of You Tube channel?
I want to teach you how to win rather than teach the basics. From my personal opinion, it’s a game that you can’t win even if you learn only the basics, so I think it’s possible to ignore the basics and learn how to win. I’m winning with that style, so I hope I can tell you about that.

-Is it important to find a tag companion in EXVS2?
There are fixed and shuffle in EXVS2, and the upper layer is doing fixed only, so it is important to find a partner. It’s important to find a partner if you want to be better, as you can play with them and tactics can be refined.

-Are you particular about consumers and social games?
There is no particular. If it’s fun, I’m playing. I’m also doing a lot of FPS games, and I’m trying to play that one game I’m addicted to, so I won’t play other games.

-Do you play other Gundam series as well?
Only the VS series. I want to do it.

-What have you been up to playing?
PDF It was when I won the 2017 championship. I was really happy at that time. Last year’s PDF2019 was dented because I was defeated after being taken three in the final. I was happy with the runner-up, but I was most happy when I won.

-Do you have any expectations for future e-sports?
Even though esports is recognized as a sport, many people around me do not think so. The game had a bad impression, and I was told to study without playing when I was a child. I want such games to eliminate the image of evil. Since esports is also recognized as a sport, I would be happy if people around me could recognize that.

-Finally, what is a game for Mine-san?
It’s a bit long because I can’t describe it in one word, but I had a hard time changing my life after encountering the game. However, I met many people in the game world, and I am grateful for that.
