Interview with CitizenWayne!

First of all, could you please introduce yourself?
My name is Victor, going online as Citizen/CitizenWayne, im 21 years old and playing the AP Carry for Na'Vi.

What was the first online game that you played competitively?
It actually is League of Legends. I was always playing a lot of computergames, and was always really good at them, but neither did they have the competetive appeal of LoL, nor was i willing to spend enough time for practising, only to enter a semiprofessional scene.

What did your friends say when you told them that you are a pro gamer?
Becoming a progamer isn't exactly a decision, even if many people say that, you get kind of dragged into it in my opinion. If you are better than the huge majority of players,   you automatically get recruited at some point, and if you keep enjoying the game under the new competetive circumstances youll keep getting better and will eventually end up being a professional gamer.Its the same for your friends, at first they just think you really enjoy playing games, and once you are sent to the first tournaments in foreign countries, you and them realise :"damn I'm/he is a progamer" :) , and at this point its already so much fun and you get so much out of it that theres not much room to be sceptical, only women have the divine right to dislike gaming, but even that can be fixed after some persuasion that your not THAT much of a nerd :DD.

What are you studying?
Nothing flash unfortunately :P,I'm studying economics, working towards my bachelor at the moment.

It must be hard to schedule your time for studying, spare time and gaming. How do you manage it?
Well most people have to work during their time in university, same goes for me. I just replaced the boring job in the office with a job I really enjoy at some point of time, and so far i dont regret anything concerning my gaming career.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Prepare for a nerdy answer :x. I'm really into movies, literature and music, also got a special thing going for great food. Besides that the usual stuff, going out with friends if the club/event is any good, hanging out, love travelling and generally meeting new people and experiencing new stuff. I also like playing tennis (I KNOW THATS HARD TO BELIEVE :D ).

What are your favourite champions?
Karthus, Morgana, Galio because they are really op and safe in the laning, i generally like having a good laner because it enables you to put more emphasis on the other aspects of the game. I also like the matchups where im clearly in the disadvantage at the beginning, i guess thats why i love veigar,its just really difficult to make it work out. New favorites are Ziggs, Kog Maw and Fizz.
Have you always played AP carry in competitive play?
Yes i decided really early on the role i would play competetive, in every game i ever played the int/mage champs were the most interesting to me and in LoL especially i enjoy having a challenging role with a  ton of champions which are all played differently.

Your first offline event under Na`Vi flag is getting closer and closer. Are you excited about it and is this going to be your first offline event in general?
I am really excited about it, the team is going to meet each other personally for the first time and i feel that it is really important. Also the first offline tournament as a new team is just something really important especially for the more unexperienced players. I was playing on a lot of offline events with my old team und the organisation of Acer, the most exciting one was to represent germany in the World Cyber Games in Korea.

Do you think meeting each player in real life will help you improve as a team, especially improve communication and teamplay?
Yes, most definitively. Its just way easier to judge the actions of another person if you know the persons face and behaviour and everything :) . Kind of takes the anonymity completely away, which is a good thing.

What are your expectations and goals for the tournament and who do you think is the favourite or who would you consider the toughest opponent?
We are going to France with the goal to win this damn thing :) , everything else would be the wrong approach. Absolute Legends will probably be the toughest opponents since they've had a really good run lately, but of course there are many strong teams participating.

Thank you for your time Victor! Do you have any shoutouts to your fans and sponsors? And of course, I wish you all the best in France!
A big Thank you to our sponsors who make all of this possible, a big Thanks to the people backing us up and rooting for us, a big Thanks to the organisation of Na'Vi for the great support and a special shoutout to my grandmother :) . Thank you for the interview!
