For people that has either played or followed Weekly Short Hunt knows that the 2nd spot in the overall score is for only one person, and that person is Wag from mCon eSport. We’ve been so lucky to get a interview with him before the Season 4 kicks off.
Let's see what he has to say:
Hello, my name is Sjoerd Willems. I am a 18 year old trackmania player playing for team mCon-esports. I have been playing Trackmania for about 8 years and not planning to stop any time soon.
I was just playing Trackmania as usual when a friend came up to me and said there was a offline hunting cup going on and asked if I was interested. I’ve been hooked ever since.
I think the event is great, it brings together different parts of the community, from new casual players to very experienced (Pro’s). It has been a pretty big on Trackmania United but it has now made the switch to Maniaplanet and Trackmania² Stadium so we will have to wait and see what will happen, but I expect it will be as big as it was.
Second solo ranking in
Weekly Short Hunt Season 3
When I first found out about WSH the first map was already over so that already lowered my chances and after that I played kinda casual, not really hunting for that one run so I made it alot harder for myself. When it comes to season 2 I had problems with map 1 again because I just did not like the map and had very little time to play so that kinda sucked. And shoutout to Raceta for playing an amazing season! Season 3 again started poorly for me since in underperformed on the first map and in my opinion season 3 was the most competetive so it was very hard to get into the top but that was the case for everybody ofcourse. Also this season some of the worlds fastest players played, Massa and Karjen so it was near impossible to get a win. Also in general WSH is all about maximizing every map and that sounds easier then it actually is. It’s all about that one run to score good points. One week might sound like alot of time, but in a game like Trackmania it can sometimes be hard to get the perfect run because of bug and that the game itself is challenging. Some maps you get a strong time pretty quickly, other maps you can’t figure out and set a personal best the last day.
If everything goes as planned I will play in the teamevent, but not yet sure with who. And ofcourse if I participate I want to win. But you cannot win a team contest by yourself. It’s a teameffort and all 3 players have to be willing to put time and efford into setting the fastest time they possibly can.
Weekly Short Hunt's season 4 will start up soon! Hurry up and register for a team now!
I like it because players that don’t have Trackmania Nations are able to participate in the contest. However people that don’t have maniaplanet won’t be able to participate aswell. Another big improvement over Trackmania Nations is that on maniaplanet times are in 0.000 instead of the 0.00 of Trackmania Nations so the amout of people that have the exact same time will be alot less.
I think it will effect the event pretty heavily especially in the amount of pro players that will compete because everybody would like some prize money ofcourse. So I think it will be the highest level ever in the history of WSH.
I hope to see all of you ingame and I wish you the best of luck.
Thanks for the amazing interview!
