Next up, the 6th participant covered by “The Legend Chronicles” series is Brutal Democracy’s Bluegod! Highly considered as the best Azwel player in the world, his overwhelming presence is always felt in every tournament he enters. Want to know more information of one of United States of America’s (USA) pride? See then the answers he gave us below!
Bluegod's Q and A
- What is your full (real) name?
- Zain Tibeishat
- Your age?
- Why is your gamertag “Bluegod”?
- The story of Bluegod is a funny one. When I was a kid I made the username “Blueboy” because I was a boy who liked the color blue. As I grew older I needed a cooler name to replace it so I decided on the name Bluegod.
- What was/were the previous SOULCALIBUR titles you played and give us some short description of your achievements in those past games?
- The only other game I played competitively is SOULCALIBUR V. My highlight (of SOULCALIBUR V) was winning every single event I entered in 2014 except for two.
- In SOULCALIBUR VI, which tournament you won was the most memorable for you?
- The most memorable win for me was NCR (NorCal Regionals 2019). It was the first major I won in SOULCALIBUR VI.
- And which moment/battle (win or lose) was the most memorable for you?
- The most memorable match for me was my winner’s finals with Linkorz at TXSD (Texas Showdown 2019). It was tied 2-2 in both games and rounds and it went down to the last hit.
- What gave you inspiration to play SOULCALIBUR on the tournament/competitive scene?
- 8wayrun chat convinced me to try competing in SOULCALIBUR offline. I took their advice and have been competing ever since.
- Who is/are the character/s you consider as your main/s during tournaments?
- I consider Azwel as my main character. I love everything about the character and can’t see myself playing anyone else unless Patroklos comes out.
- If you could describe your gameplay, how would you describe it?
- Hard to really describe my style of play as I feel like it changes depending on what I feel at the moment. The closest thing I can come up with is aggressive with an emphasis on getting on my opponent’s head.
- Who is the player you are most threatened with in the World Invitationals?
- I am most threatened by Linkorz at the World Tournament.
- The World Invitationals is approaching fast. How do you feel about the tournament? How did you prepare for it?
- I prepared by playing online with strong SOULCALIBUR players and doing some labbing afterwards.
- Is there any player you would like to fight against in particular? Or in the contrary someone you don’t want to fight against?
- I would like to fight against OmegaDR the most, I have never gotten the opportunity to play against him in a tournament. I am ready to fight against anyone, there is nobody I want to fight the least right now.
- This invitational is the best way to celebrate SOULCALIBUR VI’s 1st anniversary and to move into Season 2. Can you tell us what SOULCALIBUR means in your life? How it has changed yours?
- SOULCALIBUR means a lot to me. It changed my life for the better in more ways than one. Not only it is a hobby I spend most of the time, but I’ve met my closest friends from playing the game. I consider the SOULCALIBUR COMMUNITY as my second family.
- Any final words to say?
- I’d like to extend a thank you for producer Okubo and the rest of the dev team for making SOULCALIBUR VI possible. All of this wouldn’t have been possible, and I wouldn’t be here where I am today if it wasn’t for you guys. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
The Unstoppable Force
If Linkorz is USA’s immovable object, Bluegod on the other is the country’s Unstoppable Force. His pressuring attacks and firepower using Azwel’s demoralizing moves crushes even the calmest of minds and add that with his mind games (his patented overkill) to get further into his opponents heads, it comes to no surprise that he is the most consistent tournament performer compared to his peers in the World Invitationals (he reached the top 8 of all 12 tournaments he entered and ended up in the Grand Finals 9 out of 12 those to which he managed to win 6). With his capable hands in using current best character in the game, Bluegod is definitely one of the most intimidating players in the SOULCALIBUR World Invitationals. Will the Blue one save the human race again like he did many times before at the end of the Invitationals? Or will the humanity save him instead? Watch the SOULCALIBUR World Invitationals to be held this November 2 in Las Vegas!
