Kev having a Puck of a time

posted by Mantis., 2 years ago
de Kevin 'kev' Stegeman, former ex-EnRo and ex-LAN player is a well known face in the e-sports circuit. Fondly reminisced as the 'Immortal Puck' player for his ferocious game-play, Kev was a part of GGnet at The International as a stand-in, where he later became the highlight player for team GGnet.

He also played under the de J4T flagship in The Defense where the team had a good run but was unable to make it to the play-offs giving him some down time in the world of DOTA 2, but is forever on the hunt for the next game.

He found a way to fill in the time by sitting down with 'Game Honour & TRDota' where they interviewed the German star in which he shares some thoughts about the German scene, Dota 2 and much more.


We all know that everybody admires your puck play. Some even call you “The Immortal Puck.” What would you like to say about this? How did you achieve this perfection?

A big shout-out to all the people who think I am an "immortal Puck player", but to be honest I would not consider myself as a "immortal puck player" anymore. I just had some good moments with that hero. I am far away from playing it perfectly - I'm not even playing Puck in DOTA2 because i have the feeling its not the same hero as it used to be.

You represented gosugamers.net at The International. You were having some unsteady days. How was it feeling, participating in the largest tournament at those hard times?

I was never a part of Team Gosugamers. I really wanted to play at the very first DOTA2 tournament therefore I asked Kuroky to get me in as a stand-in player to be sure I get to the event and maybe even a small chance of playing it.
The feeling of the tournament was extremely nice. Just to meet all players which you know for a long time now was the biggest reason for me to be there.

Whats your opinion about team GG’s separation? Team GG no longer exists. Any thoughts?

After Puppey and Pajkatt left the team, I was sure this Team wont exist any longer. Kuroky does not have the same leadership skills as Puppey also Kebap and rmN are not as skilled as Puppey and Pajkatt. I know for a fact that if Kuro plays for a team, he wants it to be the No. 1 team in the world! - That wasn't possible with the last lineup.

Kuro is one of the best player ( if not the best) but he can't find a good team.

ARIANA Gaming --

Roster
Alexander 'Alex' Reinhardt (Captain)
Norman 'Leaf' Zörner
Pascal 'paS' Lohmeier
Burak 'saga' Sezer
Kuro KuroKy' Salehi Takhasomi (stand-in)

He is listed as a stand in but he plays so much it may be his new team

It's not his new team; he's specifically stated that he's just ringing for the time being.

If ARIANA wins any major award soon, for sure the organization will officially list Kuroky on their lineup.

If not, well, be a stand-in for a bit longer. :p

True...Kuroky is an extremely talented player who needs the right team.

Ariana isn't a bad team to build on, replace 1-2 players and it could be on a very high level very soon. Above all, Saga is the greatest player people just don't know about right now.

You might want to next time make that a little more clear in your post / article as just your names is generally not enough to know where both the sources come from.

Actually KKY is and will not be playing for Ariana i bet 10 USD on this :D - he was asked b< mouz to join them some time ago but he didn't want to. He said he will stay clanless and play as standin until he finds the right time - I don't think this is Panzer. They are talented but unfortunately kuro is 1000 levels above them and needs an international team imo.

Mouz already have enough Carry and solo players, Kuro would only be brought in if they were going to replace SingSing or Bamboe, which I really don't see them doing

Ofcourse they have 2 soloplayers. But you really can't deny the fact that Kuro a) is more skilled b) has more experience and knowledge (map awareness etc). i don't want to sound like a fanboy, but there is a reason why he has such a huge fanbase: because he is an outstanding (if not the best) player who arised from the european scene.
It is actually really sad the he doesn't find a good offer. only time will tell.
