NYXL Ark on what Shock teaches them in scrims: "How to handle the Widowmaker, because BabyBay is so good."

NYXL support, ArK, on his OWL friendships, learning from SF Shock, and on staying positive in Ranked.

Q: Who in OWL do you still want to befriend?

Probably Mickie from Dallas Fuel, maybe? I just like his mental. I just like him personally. And also...well, I’m kind of friends with Unkoe right now, but I wanna be closer with him. Because I met him in-game and he was really fun. I heard that Shadowburn is really fun. I think I know all the Koreans, but they’re kinda not fun...that much. For me, haha. I think I’m just used to them.

Q: How are SF Shock as regular scrim partners?

If you’re handling with teams like Boston who like really play aggressive, Shock is kind of a different team from them. Like when you’re playing a team like Houston, or teams who plays more defensive, I think Shock helps up a lot. They have a really good Widowmaker like BabyBay. I think their playstyles are quite similar.

What are some things you learn from SF Shock specifically?

I think the best one would be how to handle the Widowmaker, because BabyBay is so good.

Q: You always stay super calm and positive in ranked. Why do you think players get mad so much?

I think there are some differences because. Some players think comp queue’s the most valuable place, but I think scrims or competition so more important. That’s probably why, I think. I just think it’s only practice. Well, I just, sometimes I get mad about it, but not a lot. Because I don’t think that’s a high level place, and I know that, so that’s probably why.

Any advice for ragers?

Maybe "just chill" is the best word for them.
