Victory X (4:31 PM)
Hey what's up everyone?!
Victory X, how do you feel when you've been playing on 3 different teams this season? Have you finally found the right team?
Victory X (4:32 PM)
It has been interesting to be on some many different teams. I think that Classic is a very solid team and I am happy to be a part of it.
Rob (Greenwood, South Carolina)
Victory how is Classic different from Instinct and Triggers Down?
Victory X (4:33 PM)
Classic differs from Instinct in that we do not argue as much as we did, and we are different from Triggers Down because I think we are more strategy oriented.
Jared: (Independence, Kansas)
Victory, how can you keep from laughing at mackeos face when he plays?
Victory X (4:34 PM)
Sometimes it is kind of hard not to laugh when you catch a glimpse. But when things are in that serious situation, you have to get over it and keep on playing.
Ishan: San Jose, CA
What has Classic done differently this time that will help them place higher in Vegas than in Dallas?
Victory X (4:35 PM)
Coming into this event we are having a LAN this wekeend and that will help us a lot, because we will take it more seriously and we have more exprience together compared to last event.
There are a lot of people who think you can't beat Instinct despite the fact that you HAVE already beaten them. Does that give you any extra motivation?
Victory X (4:36 PM)
Yes it does. People thought it was a fluke the last time. We are just going to have to beat them again to prove it was not. I think we can do it again.

Victory how does it feel teamming up with Mackeo again for vegas and how well do you expect classic to do in vegas?
Victory X (4:38 PM)
It is pretty cool to be teaming with him again. We have done well together in the past. I think we can do better than we did in Dallas. We placed 5th in '06 and 4th in '07 and if the trend continues we should be placing higher than that.
Sean (Boston, MA.)
Will you guys have any new/different strategies heading into Vegas, or are you saving the new stuff for next season?
Victory X (4:39 PM)
Well this LAN will help us out, but other than that we have the same idea with a couple tweeks.
Joseph, Long Island, NY
Victory, do you consider yourself underrated? Who is the most underrated played in the league?
Victory X (4:41 PM)
I do not consider myself underrated or overrated, because i do not know how people rate me. As far as most underrated player, I will go with Heinz. He has impressed me all season.
Dave B. Albany, NY
Who is your favorite player to watch besides those already on Team Classic?
Victory X (4:42 PM)
Let's see, I like to watch Hysteria, because he is always doing crazy plays. I like to watch him with a sniper, it is pretty exciting.
Victory X (4:43 PM)
I just want to give out a shout out to Big Tim Baby and Shannon. Hello to all the few remaining Classic fans out there. See you in Vegas.
Buzzmaster (4:45 PM)
Thanks Victory, and goodluck in Vegas! Soldi3r187 is up next!
Soldi3r187 (4:46 PM)
Hey everyone, what's up?!
Soldier, you played fantastic at Dallas and became a huge part in upsetting Instinct. What do you think was/is the key in upsetting Instinct?
Soldi3r187 (4:47 PM)
I think we played very well in Dallas. I think we need to practice a lot more though.
Alex (Canton, Michigan)
This one goes to Soldier187: How do you train for such a big event like Vegas?
Soldi3r187 (4:48 PM)
Well I have been playing a lot online, playing 4-5 hours a night. we are going to LAN today, starting against Str8, and I think it is key to do that before the event.
Do you play Call of Duty and if so how good are you?
Soldi3r187 (4:49 PM)
Yes I did play Call of Duty 4, we finished second in the 2v2 game battles.
What is th e best part of being in MLG?
Soldi3r187 (4:52 PM)
It's really cool going to events, seeing thousands of people going to play the same game, you have been palying for a very long time.
WHat was the best moment of the season fro you?
Soldi3r187 (4:54 PM)
My best tournament was Toronto; I was on top of my game then and playing very well.
Shaun Chave Novi, MI
You guyz are all soo good. where did you learn all your skills??
Soldi3r187 (4:55 PM)
I played Halo 2 everyday, and when Halo 3 came out we just put a lot of time into it as well.
What do you think Mackeo brings to Classic?
Soldi3r187 (4:56 PM)
Mackeo is a very smart player who brings a lot of strategy. We now talk about strategy before a game, which is something we did not do before Toronto.
Soldi3r187 (4:57 PM)
I want to give a shout out to Amy! Thanks to everyone for your questions!
