Skrapz: ‘Something I never thought was possible’
I reached out to Skrapz to talk about Stage 2, playing with his twin brother, and his goals for the rest of Infinite Warfare.
You recently qualified to play in the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 playoffs. In Stage 1 you placed 13th-16th. What do you think is the biggest difference from Stage 1 to Stage 2?
The biggest difference from Stage 1 is we just clutched up together, think we just wanted it so much more as well going into Stage 2 we just wanted to prove to ourselves what we can do.
What’s it like to play and succeed with your twin brother, Wuskin?
Playing with my brother is a dream come true to be honest. Since the age of 10 playing every day with him, clan battles on MW2, MW3 and BO2 staying up all night playing against Americans then going school, then joining FNATIC one of the biggest organizations in the world, traveling everywhere with him to play a video game is unreal.
You and your brother like to joke around on Twitter. Is your lightheartedness a key to your success?
The way me and my brother are with each other and joke with each other I wouldn’t say it’s something towards our success, but it just betters everything really. Always good vibes always laughing and joking. Just something your normal person wants to be around.
It has been around 7 months since you joined FNATIC, what is it like playing for a powerhouse esports organization like FNATIC?
When Tommey told us we was joining FNATIC, I messaged SunnyB and said that’s not happening, didn’t seem real to be honest. Something I never thought was possible, all happened so quick now I have loads of jerseys with my name on the back. Feels great representing this organization, they don’t mess about. The best organization I’ve ever been in!
What are your goals as a team/individual going into Stage 2 playoffs and the Call of Duty World League Championship?
Our goal going into playoffs and champs is obviously to win them. But with the competition on this game and all the good teams you don’t know who’s gonna win it, just wanna bring it to all the big teams and show we can hang with the big teams to be honest.
