WIN $3000 if you can defeat Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel at Computex - Page 13

post #121 of 157
omg, hes definetely beatable, it just takes a quake 4 god

I was at ZionLan last year in IL when he was facing Lost Cause

Fatality has a very conservative play style, in all games. He picks a semi decent spots, goes to get necessary things, and takes advantage of that specific spot.

Lost cause is patient for him to explore around a little bit and is aggressive once fatality comes out a bit.


Lost cause raped fatality in quake 4 and i witnessed it lol. It was awesome, they never run too, they just bunny hop EVERYWHERE, its nukin futs....

Lost cause pwned fatality with the last kill with the lightning gun, he was trying to explain the gun and how it shoots to me but it was confusing, these guys ahve the game to an exact science. He explained to me how you have to aim like 22.something degrees ahead of the guy so the bolt Curves i nto him. All i can say is, i entered the tourny and lost in the first round lol

One of the reasons to why he's so popular, is that he's a very fluid gamer when it comes to winning.
Basically his average rank never changes.

Lucky? He made roughly 1/4 of a million dollars in cash and prizes in 2005 alone from his skill in gaming. Are you seriously ignorant enough to view that as luck?

I don't think you're qualified to tell us what "the truth" is. Apparently, you've been living in a cave and have no idea that video gaming is now extremely lucrative for those good enough to cash in on it. The Madden Bowl pays $100,000 for the winner each year. Magic The Gathering (a card game) World Championship paid $32,000 to the first place winner. I can list tons more, but I'll end this by saying that the CPL (CyberAthelete Professional League) will pay out $300,000 to the first place finisher this year. According to your statements, none of these guys are making "ends meat" and are "poor as dirt". Do some research and you'll find several 16 yr olds making more than the average doctor If you still consider that a hobby and nonskill based, why are the same guys winning most of the tournaments? Pure luck?

Mmhmm, there you go with the luck again. He's won over 1/2 a million dollars beating people repeatedly, but you still believe it's pure luck

Got to respect the guy. He is making millions doing something he enjoys. Very few people in the world can say the same thing. Mayb that is why some post reak of jealousy and envy?

Mainly due to guys like him that pc gaming is gaining more attention and not completely tossed aside for consoles. Hope he squeezes every cent out of his popularity while he can. lol and people say the U.S. is not the land of opportunity anymore.

Yes, he really is all luck. There are tons of better gamers out there in the world but you don't see them because not everybody has a chance to fly all around to world to attend every Lanparty in the world like Fatal1ty does.

I respect his profession, but I personally think he's a tool.


But a true pro gamer? Awesome. And I guess he is making boatloads of cash off of his deals with Abit and Zalman and Creative.
