As DreamHack France is getting closer, we would like you to know a bit more about our PUBG team.
Hello Fyzx. Could you introduce yourself for those who don’t know you yet ?
Hi ! My name is Youssef “FyzX” Douiri, eSport player specialized in FPS. I’m 32 and from Morocco.Video games, shooter games especially, are my first passion. My eSport carreer began in 2013 on Battle field 4, i was playing for Gigabyte Metatrone back then and the competition spirit never left me.
When you arrived at BeGenius ESC, what were your ambitions ? Did they change since your arrival ?
Truth be told, getting recruited by beGenius was a huge lucky draw for me and my team, but there was no randomness in it, entering a structure was one of the steps we had to reach.
BeGenius also had the mindset i was looking for : they are know to be respectful, serious and professional, their reputation on the eSport scene is also established. Regarding our ambitions, nothing has changed really, we want to be among the best french teams, even becoming the best of them. We want other team to respect us as their equals and, as much as everybody who has a slight taste for competition, win as much competitions as we can. BeGenius is a huge asset in our evolution when it comes to both reputation and the support they provide to us. I’d like to thank the staff by the way who always work in the shadows but greatly help us reaching our goal and growing up as a team day after day.
A lot of great performances lately, would you like to say anything about it ?
Great performances are the reward we received for all the hardwork the team is achieving : game time, stronger mindset, being able to question yourself…
To develop my answer, i would like to add that we analyzed the current french PUBG scene globally in order to adapt our gameplay and get better. We’ve found a gameplay all the team agreed to, each player is comfortable with the way he plays and can therefore play 400% of his capacities.
I am very proud of my players Jeje-C, ECTOW and Pica who have a winner mindset and never let anything go despite the defeats we’ve been through. They’re always listening, finding solutions during constructives talks and always in a good atmosphere.
You’ve been pretty constant during the Predator League, was it, for you, the best test imaginable before the DH ?
Best test before DH ? Perhaps, i would say so.
During the Predator League, we met at least 70% of the teams that will be in DreamHack Tours. It is, for us, a chance to work on our habits and correct as much mistakes as possible. The Predator League is around 16 maps during 4 evenings and gather some of France’s best teams, it helps us getting experience and see if there’s any mistakes in our gameplay. (To date, we’ve ended at the 6th place during Predator League despite our Top 5 ambitions. But when we look at the teams that were here, we are pretty confident for the DH).
What are your ambitions for the DH that’s to come, as it will be your first LAN ?
Our ambitions for the DH, with the way it will be played in mind, we are aiming at the Grand Finale, then we will try to reach the top of the ranking system. But, to be honest, i would love to win it *smiling*. Getting a good performance under the Genius’ jersey is our top priority at the moment for the DH. We want to show our best for this first LAN and win the audience and the french scene’s trust.
I would also like to thank my team mates who, day after day in this journey, are becoming my family. I would like to address my biggest thanks to all the people who believe in us and support us for the different tournaments.I’d like to finish by mentionning the french movie called “L’ascension” with Ahmed Sylla in it, our journey is just alike the mount Everest ascension, we have to go slowly, step by step, without the full knowledge of what this mountain (PUBG eSport scene for us) has yet hid from us, good or bad surprises. Our goal is to reach the top, leaving
our mark in memories and our history in BeGenius ESC.Thanks to the BeGenius structure for the support they provide us to continue in this wonderful adventure and thanks to our sponsors :Acer, EATON, Nacon.
