Today we offer a double interview with Jason “DjuZ” Dray and Josselyn “KSiiX” Le Guilloux to discuss the new year of competition.
Hello KsiiX, DjuZ ! Could you introduce yourself in a few words ?
KSiiX : Hello, my name is Josselyn LE GUILLOUX aka “KSiiX”, I’m 21 and I live in a French region called Bretagne. On R6S, I’m a “roamer” in defense rounds, which means I play aggressively outside of the Bomb Sites. In attack rounds, I can fill different roles, I mostly play support or opener depending on what strategy is adopted.
DjuZ : Hello, my name is Jason, I’m 20 and I work as a mechanic at Peugot. My role in the team during attack rounds is to drone my mates and, during defense rounds, I can both roam or stay on the objective. Most of the time, I play Hibana, Thermite/Jäger, Bandit, Smoke.
How has been your integration so far inside BeGenius ESC ?
K : Integration within BeGenius has been the greatest so far. The staff is listening and welcoming. We have the same expectations regarding the upcoming season. I’m really thankful to them for their trust, and we’re ready to give everything we’ve got !
D : Integration has been pretty well at the moment, we spoke a lot with the staff, and they are just great. I’m really proud to wear these colors and the BeGenius’ tag.
What are your thoughts regarding the current meta ? Do you believe the last season 3’s three agents had a huge influence on it ?
K : The current meta is much different that what we used to see. In attack, there are much more Glaz and Ying, and in defense much more traps agents. The new agents, even if Dokkaebi is being played more lately, hasn’t been of much use so far. It still is a really interesting meta as we see older agents coming back.
D : The current meta require to slow our opponents down as much as we can, using the defenders traps for example. The latest agents are one of the sources of this change in the meta : Dokkaebi, who can make the defenders’ phone ring, and Vigil who is invisible to drones, force players to play agents that were no longer useful.
Who is, in your opinion, Year 2’s agent ?
K : For Year 2 i would say Zofia for attack, a good mix between Ash and Ela, and useful in most of the situations. Defensively speaking, Ela has a powerful weapon and mines that can clearly be a game changer.
D : To me, it’s clearly Dokkaebi. She gets pretty annoying with those calls that can counter early game’s roamers or disturb the defender’s focus in late round’s gameplay.
Rainbow 6’s Year 3 will begin soon enough, what are your expectations ? What are the agents you would like to see ?
K : For the upcoming year, there’s a lot I’d like to see. More balance between characters, better servers, new tournaments. For the new agents, I’d like to see Hibana and Glaz’s counters.
D : I really like the Championship’s format that Pro League will put in place for the seasons to come but I’d also like to see a meta change that may appear with the reveal of new agents. I’d like the new agents to be a help in defense considering a current meta attack oriented with Glaz, Hibana, Dokkaebi and others. They can be slowed down of course, be I’d like to see a new defense type appear for example.
The next Challenger will begin in March, what are you feelings about this tournament ?
K : This challenger’s season will be, to me, one of the hardest so far. A lot of team with a good level will fight for qualifications and I will watch it closely. We will give it all during our games, every mistake can be paid the hard way.
D : I begin every game with a clear goal : Win. What I can say is that, considering the CL’s teams level this season, I will have to work twice as hard individually and collectively.
What are your goals for this year ?
K : Our goal is clearly the Pro League qualification. We missed it from one round last time we tried, this time will work !
D : As all challengers we only seek to play better every time. Therefore, our goal is naturally the qualification to Pro League.
Any Last word :
K : #GoGenius
D : I’d like to thanks all my mates who decided to trust me when they recruited me, and I would also like to thank all the people that had my back since the very beginning. I won’t forget about them and will try to make those thanks meaningful during this season. Finally, I’d like to thank BeGenius who has decided to trust us for the upcoming seasons ! #GoGenius.
