Howzit everyone,
 
The past few weeks have been hard as the final leg of the DGL is at the half way marker, and the teams are fighting to stay on top. Team Vanguard has been leading the way for ALG with only one loss under the belt due to technical difficulty at the time of the match. It was even more frustrating as it was the only other Tte sponsored team here in SA, a rematch is definitely in order to put us firmly back at the top! :D Team Vanguard will be pushing for the #1 spot and doing their best to prepare for the upcoming national championship this coming October. Keep an eye on this space as the Ballistix Masters SA (previously called the Crucial Cup) has also kicked of with Team Vanguard starting their campaign with a Match vs (DL)Abberation. Here are the links to follow team Vanguard!

Howzit everyone,
 
Here is the latest interview i did for the Ballistix Masters Cup.
 

Getting to know ALG and looking at the final 16

The final 16 is here and we had Cady give his views and predictions on the outcome of these matches. Remember that each team who wins their first bracket match makes it to the final 8 and automatically wins a minimum of R2000 for their team! PewPew Gaming already won their match and are one of the teams to claim a share of the massive prize pool.
Matches to look out for this week that will be casted by Spitzkop

Thursday 01 sep 20:30pm – DDC Inferno vs ENiGma Devast8
Sunday 4 September at 18h00 – Pulse Elevate vs SvG iNFamous
Sunday 4 September at 20:30 – ALG Vanguard vs Tera Lit
Stream link

Now looking at that Sunday match and seeing ALG mentioned again, you can’t help but notice that this is a clan who has been making waves the past few years. I myself said in an recorded interview that this would be the clan to watch out for, as they are putting in a lot of work and they have really grown so much over the last year.
I took some time to speak to Wimpie, the owner of ALG.
 

When was ALG established and why start your own clan?

 ALG was established in October 2010 as Armor Recon(BEar), for those who can still remember. It grew as a clan from 8 guys to 3 times the size. For a while we were mucking about trying to find our feet till we started picking up some talent and also gaining some good experience. When the clan got a bit of traction we re-branded to what you see today, ALG. For me, starting my own clan, was something inspired from my army days. I always had a passion for the military and some games gave me the option not to just be a foot soldier but also drive tanks etc and i had to do it with some of my friends. They won’t let just anybody drive a tank in the army, so this is the next best thing!

What kind of effort does it take running a successful clan/MGO?

The short version is “don’t try this at home!†Everyone thinks that you can slap a few guys together and bang ‘super clan achieved’, it takes long hours to manage, listen, correspond and also stay on top of your game if you are part of one of the teams. Me, I have 2 full time Jobs, kids, a wife, a puppy, and 2 big puppies to take care of, so it can be tough juggling it all at the same time, I’m sure many gamers in SA have the same problems. But if you can make it work the results are so worth it. Just run the clan like you would a business, with your only goal being success and everything will be a lot easier, even with a few tough decisions along the way.

How many teams do you have and how often do you train?

ALG currently has four Battlefield teams, two CSGO teams, One DOTA and one LOL team and alot of guys doing the casual thing ranging from ARMA to WIldstar. The Current teams in the DGL Crunch in 3 days a week from anywhere between 4-7 hours of training, and matches. This not including the individual training everyone takes on themselves. And we definitely think Lockers doesn’t count!

Having 2 teams in the final 16 bracket, and with the tournament paying a guaranteed R2000 to the top 8 teams, do you see both your teams winning their first bracket matches and securing your clan some extra cash?

My prediction always kicks me in the face so i cant say anything until we hear that bell ring. We have good hopes for the two teams, and we always want our guys to do well! Getting both teams as close to the finals is a decent amount of training we can get in for rage. I know if Vanguard gains some cash, it’ll help me get my hands on a sick gaming chair. The bucket don’t work for me no more!

What teams would you like to see in the Semi Finals?

This will be a tight one as some teams have shown us all that no team on this level should be left ignored. I will give this one a xTc-Legion and a Pulse team Envy or Evolve in the one and this is tough maybe a SVG-iNfamous and Pew Spectrum in the other, i could be wrong as i would like one of our teams to be there but these guys are on top of their game at the moment and will always prove tough to beat.

When talking about E-sports, why Battlefield? What made you decide to play this specific game?

Like i said before i am a passionate military man, been there done that kind of vibe. Battlefield gave me the all round feeling of being in battle, loud explosions, running from tanks, choppers overhead, building collapsing…. It all makes for that real sense of battle. It’s nothing close to the real thing, but then the real thing doesn’t let you respawn!!!

Regarding Battlefield 1 being released soon, what are your thoughts on the game and the years going forward?

I have mixed feelings at the moment, I haven’t played yet (really need some fiber for faster downloads!), but I think with all the progress EA and Dice have made in working with the community to fix all the issues in BF4 gives us some hope that it’ll be a fun game to play. As for competitive, it doesn’t really look like it was a part of the thought process when they designed the game, but I may be wrong. If it proves to be a poor competitive title, then we’ll hang around for some Bad Company 3! Otherwise, Batallion 1944 is still in the works which is boasting to be a skill based game and is being designed by a bunch of ex comp players from back in the day. Yes, Battlefield 1 is the next big thing from EA but will it be the next competitive Battlefield for ALG, I don’t know.
