HighDistortion (4:31 PM)
I look forward to Columbus and I hope we live up the the expectations the new team has set for itself.
Do you have any advice for a player who has the determination and passion to play the game well, but can never find a team who shares the same things? Thanks, HD!
HighDistortion (4:33 PM)
If you are new and unknown you need to work from the bottom. I started with friends and then we played other teams and those better other teams will notice you and they will contact you and you will end up playing with them and you work your way up. It is a cycle. I started with friends and worked my way up.
How well do you think your team will perform at Columbus? Worried about your former team?
HighDistortion (4:34 PM)
Look forward to playing my former team. I hope they do well. We left with no bad blood. It should be fun. With the new team we have very high expectations.
What do you have to say to players who have always doubted your skill with the shotgun?
HighDistortion (4:36 PM)
I can easily say that my shotgun is not the best of the best, but it gets the job done. I excel with team work and the desire to win and minimal mistakes. The key to a game is making as few mistakes as possible. Teamwork and disciplined play, I believe, will outwork talent with weapons.

In your opinion, who is the best GOW player in the world right now?
HighDistortion (4:37 PM)
Right now it is hard to say between Meadowlands and Columbus there were a lot of rule changes and map changes. When I play this game, I do not look at individuals but the teams.
Amanda (Blue Springs, MO)
Since joining The Nsan3z, ya'll have been an unstoppable team. How do you think ya'll will place in Ohio? Also, do you like bear stew?
HighDistortion (4:39 PM)
The four of us are a team and we expect a lot from each other. We take accountability individually when we make mistakes and pick each other up. We demand a lot from each other. We want to win every time, win every round. We strive for perfection and in Columbus we hope that results in a win. And do not mess with my pet bear.
whats up distortion, what happened with you and MbN?
HighDistortion (4:41 PM)
There is an article about it, but to summarize: There was no blood bad, it was just my personal business decision, that's all. I felt that this was the best option to me. I wish them the best of luck and I would be happy for them if they were to win. We are still friends. There is no bad blood.
If infinity wasn't banned from meadowlands would they won the mlg lan , and what do you think about the bann of infinity from meadowlands
HighDistortion (4:43 PM)
Well first of all rules are rules and they broke them and MLG enforced them. Just because they are a pro team they should not get special treatment. I am not sure if they would have won, but they would have been stiff competition and would have easily placed in the top 4.
Ty Q. (Pittsburg PA)
What aspect of your game are you working on improving?
HighDistortion (4:44 PM)
Well since the switch between the events, definitely working on my slaying with the shotgun. That is what I am working on and smoke grenades are way more important and countering rushes as a team. Countering rushes as a team has become very important since the switch.
Cameron (McDonough, GA)
Do you think that Gears Of War will become as big as Halo?
HighDistortion (4:46 PM)
I personally I do not think it will get as big as Halo. I am satisfied with where it is now as opposed to last season., I have to thank MLG for having the game and supporting it. It deserves some limelight. I wish it were more exposed, but I am satisfied with where it is now.
HighDistortion (4:49 PM)
Thanks to MLG for the continued support with Gears of War 2 and I hope it continues for many years. I'd like to give a shootout to my teammates both past and present for getting me where I am today and to our sponsor NOX. I'm looking forward to Columbus
