Zlapped: Welcome guys to Ask Zlapped, where I’ll be answering your questions 5 days a week.
Zlapped: Hello and welcome guys to Ask a Pro Gamer. I am Pontus “Zlapped” Mähler. Well its Mähler really, but it’s hard to pronounce for english people, so we’ll keep it at Mähler.
Zlapped: Blah blah blah and I like potatoes and pineapples.
Zlapped: I am a professional gamer and have been so for 5 years. Doing full-time gaming for 4 years and YouTubing for 3 years. Mainly you’ll see me streaming pretty much everyday and then I’ll provide short clips and videos on my YouTube Channel and then of course I’ll be playing in tournaments and attending events and sometimes I’ll even be doing some interviewing and casting. So my main thing that I do is I try to be educative and teach people how to be better at the game. In specific I try to do that on YouTube.
And then on my stream we’re just playing and playing some music and just enjoying our time mostly.
This show will be from me to you guys. If you guys have any questions regarding my life as a gamer. Not personal questions. More so, what I’m doing and questions about a specific game. Or specific questions about heroes. For example, Glacius, do you think he has a state in the competitive scene. I would say that’s a pretty decent question in regards to heroes.
So any questions you may or may not have in regards to my job as long as it isn’t about me personally.
So basically an example question. So Zlapped you are a professional gamer and a streamer do you think streaming at the same time you’re playing is affecting your gameplay? Do you think that you are playing worse when you’re streaming or does it not make a difference? That’s a great question that I can answer quite thoroughly.
My answer would be something like, I’m going to make the short answer now, but I will make a big answer if someone asks me that question. But the short answer is of course it affects my gameplay. Because I need to multitask, I need to read the chat, I need to play, I need to look at the minimap, I need to play good, I need to be focused as well as interacting with you guys all the time. So, obviously it does impact me a lot. I’m a very good multitasker as I’m getting used to it.
So, it doesn’t impact me too much but I can promise you that it does have a tiny bit of an impact and also mentally as well with the fact that you always have to think are they ghosting? Are the being serious? Because you never know if people are looking at your stream to ruin it. So anyway ahhh…
Zlapped: The show will be published one episode per day so I’ll try to answer one question a day from you guys. Instead of doing what I’ve done previously which is do the AMA’s on Reddit.com and Facebook and upload a YouTube episode.
And we’ll also be helping out charity a little bit which is why I think it’s kind of awesome.
