Real Name: Jordan Hamburger AKA: Soundwave Occupation: As of this interview I'm just working part time at Maccas but I'm going to go to Uni soon. Date of Birth: 9th of March, 1996. City/Country: Canberra, Australia Hobbies: I like to play video games, obviously. I also like to watch TV and collect action figures. Starcraft Goals: I want to get NA GM and also become a respected player within the SEA scene. Clan/Team: I am the leader of the clan Eternal E-Sports and have been since mid 2012. I am currently on the team SYF Gaming as part of their Academy. Life and Career Goals: I just want to live a cool, happy life. I want to marry a hot babe, have some kids and be a good Dad.
Notable Starcraft/Gaming Achievements: I came 13th at ACL Brisbane in 2014. I was ONE MAP away from the Championship Bracket, so that's pretty huge. Recently I came 4th in the SEAcraft Melee and won $5. Haven't done too much really but I think my best is yet to come
Featured Online VODs: Since Twitch decided to remove all the old unhighlighted videos, the only real VOD online you can find of me is this one from the Korean ladder (I was Master) in 2013.
Favourite Strategy: I don't really think I have one. I find standard ling/bane/muta in ZvT a lot of fun to play, but I think there will always be a special place in my heart for the Jerry build. Whether its ZvZ or ZvP or whatever, it's always been with me to help me take easy Bo1 wins off players much better than me like Poker. It basically got me from Platinum to Master (SEA GM) in 2012 with a 90% ZvZ winrate.
Favourite Eye Candy: AJ Lee, she's a wrestler. Of course she's married though, shattering my dreams.
Favourite Food: Cheddar Shapes. They're my trademark too and I take some wherever I go. If for some reason you don't recognize my handsome visage at a LAN, the guy eating Cheddar Shapes is me.
Favourite Drink: I used to drink a lot of Coca Cola but I've switched to Pepsi Max recently. Still undecided on what I like better, though. Probably still Coke.
Favourite Movie: Uh, Terminator 2. I'm also a big fan of the superhero genre so I was a massive fan of The Avengers! I hope the second one is even better.
Favourite Song: I'll give my Top 3 I guess. In The End by Linkin Park, Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down and Welcome To The Jungle by Guns N' Roses
Favourite Meme: This is a really tough question. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Rick Roll. I love Caramelldansen too. But all time favourite was probably Peanut Butter Jelly Time. It's not something you'd ever really see today but I think I got the most entertainment out of it.
Of course YouTube Poops and their own kind of sub-meme culture are hilarious too.
Players Respected: tgun was my all time favourite, but I have huge respect for players like KingKong and PiG currently. Of course I get a lot of advice from Azz these days as well. He's got some good and accessible insight into the game.
Arch-Nemesis: My fellow Canberrans Pox and especially Wally. They're always knocking me out of tournaments. Hate it!
Best Starcraft player in SEA?: Looks like it's PiG at the moment. It might be Petraeus but he isn't around these parts anymore!
Best Starcraft player in the world, of all time: He might not be the best CURRENTLY, but no one has ever managed to top Mvp. The King of Wings, the Game Genie Terran. Damn, he was good. All his games were just absolutely amazing to watch too.
