Aleksander "BlooD" Riabikin in
As we have promised, we would like to present an exclusive interview with our FIFA player Aleksander " BlooD " Riabikin! The interview turned out to be both massive and informative and even if you don't know that much about FIFA world, Aleksander's answers will show you a new world of this eSports discipline. Quoting the interview: How FIFA-community develops in Ukraine? Do you see any slump or rise? Following the FIFA-community since 2005, I have to say that there was some growth from 2005 to 2008. That was caused by a large amount of well-paid FIFA tournaments both offline and online. That was a huge motivation boost for all players to fight for glory and show their results. Later on a world financial crisis happened and only Counter-Strike remained as the only eSports title in our country. There was only a few online FIFA tournaments mixed with WCG qualifier every year… As we can see today, sponsors and tournament organizers recovered from financial slump and some new tournaments have finally emerged. The new engine of FIFA PC version gave a great boost for the game’s popularity and lots of people started to switch from PES to FIFA 2011. The news are great as young players have better motivation to produce results and participate both in online and offline tournaments. Moreover, the news about world’s top multigaming team acquiring FIFA squad influenced eSports community a lot as many players now want to play against us. I am quite confident that the downswing of late 2008 now came to an end and FIFA is getting to a new level of its development!
