Not too long ago we bought to talk with Byron ‘Nastie’ Plumridge from the London Royal Ravens to debate the upcoming season, Trendy Warfare 2 and rather more.
Initially, what are your ideas on Trendy Warfare 2 as an entire?
Nastie: “The bottom sport’s actually good. I just like the gunplay. It is good. I believe the maps want some work. We’re nonetheless enjoying with eight hills on a few of these maps which might’t be taking place. So as soon as they tune that, I believe we’ll be good. And I would not thoughts a ninja perk as effectively.”
How have scrims been going to date, do you suppose this might be 12 months for the Ravens?
Nastie: “Yeah, I believe so. I’d ignore the coaches ballot. We’ve had a reasonably gradual begin to it as a result of we began later than everybody else. However we’ll get there. I’ve religion. It’s going to be 12 months. We simply want a bit extra time, you understand.”
You’ve bought PaulEhx returning to the London Royal Ravens for the third 12 months in a row. What’s he like as a teammate?
Nastie: “I by no means teamed up with Paul till final 12 months and I had expertise with him final 12 months. He is fairly vibey, brings good vibes to the squad and he’s a extremely good participant. So I am wanting ahead to enjoying with him this 12 months for an entire season as a substitute of simply two weeks. Like I mentioned, we should always have saved him final 12 months.”
London had a variety of disturbances final 12 months, do you suppose this hindered you and stopped the group from reaching their full potential?
Nastie: “One hundred percent. There have been a variety of exterior components that managed our 12 months. I believe we bought forward actually early final 12 months after which after main one, Joey needed to go residence and stuff like that. We could not practise after which we may practise after which Joey got here again after which we could not practise once more. So we fell behind. We needed to get Harry in, Harry’s a extremely good participant, however he was the incorrect match for our group. So yeah, I felt like that actually did hinder us.
After which in direction of the top of the 12 months, we simply, we had all of the items. We simply could not put it collectively. I really feel like if after main one none of that stuff occurred, I believe we might’ve had a extremely stable 12 months. I felt like we might’ve been fairly constant the entire 12 months all through, to be trustworthy.”
The London Royal Ravens have been ranked backside of the Breaking Level Energy Rankings this 12 months. Does this offer you some additional motivation to show them incorrect?
Nastie: “ I imply, it is all the time nice to show folks incorrect. Truthfully, I do not actually care concerning the coaches’ ballot although. Respectfully. Final 12 months we had the identical factor advised to us after which it simply did not turn into true. So we’ll simply do the identical factor this 12 months. I can see why as a result of now we have began gradual in scrims, however I do not really feel that twelfth represents us. So, yeah, I believe we’ll be fantastic.”
We’ve not had a UK occasion shortly, is that one thing you’ve been pushing for on the Ravens?
Nastie: “Everybody right here desires a London occasion. I am fairly positive the entire league desires a London occasion to be trustworthy. London’s recognized for having a extremely good crowd, actually good occasion. I’d like to have a London occasion. Hopefully we will get one. As a result of it could be wonderful to return and play there once more.”
