初夏の侯、ますますご清栄のこととお喜び申し上げます。

この度、WE-R1株式会社(代表:アカ・リオネル)は新たに設立されたロケットリーグ部門において、ValtaN選手、Moka選手、akikansu選手の3名と正式にプロ契約を締結し、令和元年7月よりプロ活動及びディスボード様との共同運営を開始致しますことをご報告申し上げます。

3名の選手達とは以前よりディスボード様を通して何度も交流をさせていただいており、多くの活動を経て我々は、彼らこそがWE-R1の掲げる「eスポーツを通して活力を創出する」という理念に相応しいアスリートであると判断し、今回のプロ契約の締結に至りました。

ValtaN選手とMoka選手は先日行われました国内リーグ「PRIMAL」にて5位という実績を残し、その高いパフォーマンスとチームワークはWE-R1においても存分に発揮されることでしょう。

akikansu選手は持ち前の技術力を武器にDuo tournamentでは3位、ore-Revo杯#12では4位という実力を持つトッププレイヤーです。

WE-R1とディスボードは、先日締結致しました業務提携契約に基づき、我々WE-R1からはPCや周辺機器等の機材や部室の提供といったハード面を支援し、ディスボード様からは配信や執筆、Webサイト管理といったソフト面でご協力頂きます。

【選手からのコメント】

ValtaN選手

この度、WE-R1に所属致しますValtaN(バルタン)です。

「ロケットリーグ」は日本ではまだマイナーなタイトルですが、その競技性は非常に高く、必ずや近い将来、国内eスポーツシーンの一角を担うと信じています。

そんな日本のロケットリーグ界を盛り上げ、世界の舞台で戦えるよう、日々努力して強くなります!

応援よろしくお願いします!

Moka選手

この度、WE-R1に所属致しますMoka(モカ)です。

今までは一つでも多くの実戦経験を積み、身体で覚えるというプレイスタイルが中心でした。

しかしプロとなった今、チームのため、そして自身の成長のため、これまで通りのスタイルのみならず、様々な試合の分析や新たな戦術の開発にも積極的にチャレンジしていく覚悟です。

そしてこの素晴らしいメンバーたちとともに、海外の強豪とも渡り合える最高のチームを目指し、日々の練習に取り組んでいきます。

akikansu選手

この度WE-R1に所属致しますakikansu(アキカンス)です。

今回新たな挑戦となるチーム活動への高揚感に胸躍らせております!

今まで以上に全力で取り組み、プロとしての自覚と覚悟を持って世界一を目指します!

【オーナーより 新部門結成に寄せて】

誰かの支えになりたい、誰かの役に立ちたい。

志を同じくする仲間を支えサポートしたいという気持ちは、人が誰しも持つ根本的な願いの一つではないでしょうか。

私はこの強い願いの元、今の活動を行っております。弊社の活動を通じ、人の喜ぶ顔が見たい、そして自身の活動意義を見出したいと願っております。

今回新しくWE-R1のプロアスリートとして仲間入りした三名の選手「Valtan選手」、「akikansu選手」「Moka選手」。彼らにとって我々の支援とサポートが、世界へのステップアップとなる良き足掛かりとなり、今後益々実力を発揮され、大いに飛躍されることを祈っております。

Interview WE-R1|Jimmy1

Jimmy 1 (J) “Hi I’m Jimmy 1, a pro athlete of WE-R1. Thank for watching this video”

Kumakun (K) ‘”Glad to have you here.”

J “Thank you for inviting me for the first-time interview.”

K “First of all, what was the first video game you played in your life?”

J “I do not remember by myself, but I heard from my family it was Virtua Fighter.

K “So it was fighting game since the beginning?”

J “My uncle was playing Virtua Fighter then and I was just 2 years old to beg to hold his arcade stick.

J “Somehow he told me to practice the command grab, giant swing of the character called Wolf, and I mastered it at the age of only two.”

K “What was the fighting game you played seriously for the first time?”

J “I just practiced combo for KOF and Persona, but it is from street STREET FIGHTER V that I started learning the frame advantages or thinking about the opponent’s’ mind.”

K “Why did you decide to become a professional of STREET FIGHTER V?”

J “Well… there are some reasons, but it was maybe the final match of the Topanga League of ULTRA STREET Fighter IV, between Momochi Ken VS Daigo Evil Ryu. Watching that match, I felt I also wanted to get applause standing on that stage. “

K “Applause?”

J “Yes, I felt “They are just too cool” looking at them,

K “Some days ago, I saw a clip where Daigo was defeated at an online match, and then he immediately went to training mode and searched for the countermeasure, what do you think about it?”

J “I think it is wonderful that he is still trying to do as much as he can. If you are that strong you will be loosened off, but he just keeps doing what he has to do. That’s an immense thing and that’s why he is the Creator of our way in the fighting game community.

K “But you want to beat him if you face him in a tournament ?”

J “Yeah, I have nothing to lose and I will crush him. Of course, I do have respect for him”

K “How did you practice in order to become a professional player?”

J “I didn’t spend so much time in training mode. You have to feel some pain if you want to learn something. So you should just let opponent crash you, then learn it with a bit of research on the training mode, and then get back to real matches.

K “Which do you practice mainly, online or offline?”

J “I used to do more online, but recently I try to go offline events as much as possible.”

K “How much do you practice every day?”

J “It depends on my condition or my motivation, but I practice for 10 hours at longest, sometimes it’s one and half hour if it is short. It varies somewhat because I’m a person of moods.  I don’t want to feel stress by going against my motivation. “

K “Now as a pro, how do you spend a day?”

J “Honesty I feel some pressure that I should make much of each day. It doesn’t answer your question directly, but I want to practice more and to be seen at the tournaments and find my way to live. “

K “Do you have anything about STREET FIGHTER V that you want to get improved? “

J “People have been talking about the input lag for years, but it has not been changed. There is some lag even offline.”

K “Then what’s the good point about the game?”

J “It’s easy to play as a game. It tends to be hard to get used to play fighting game, but I think this game is rather easier than others. Even just hitting a button will become a combo. Though it is difficult to make the difference for its easiness, the top players do win more than others “

K “Why do you use Claw (Balrog for Japanese or Vega for English)?”

J “In the past I was playing a little bit of STREET FIGHTER IV. I was playing some characters but then I found I can win just doing Barcelona Attack with Claw. Plus, he could walk fast, his reach was long, and he was cool, more than anything “

J “At first I was not sure if I would play STREET FIGHTER V because I didn’t have Playstation4. But as I found Claw in the first character list, I decided to put my fate with him. If he were not in STREET FIGHTER V, I think I would be still Playing ULTRA STREET FIGHTER IV now.”

K “Now you are also using G. Why is it?”

J” When I first saw his trailer, I thought his moves are good. I tend to choose my characters as their moves are cool or they look cool. Plus, it is also fun to take on a challenge to learn a lot of newt things,”

K” Do you think now your Claw is stronger with you start using G?”

J” Yeah, I think so. If you only use Claw you start to forget the strength of Claw, the long range, the walk speed etc. With using G I’m now more aware of the strength of Claw. Using two characters gives you clearer idea of the strength the weakness of your character.”

K” What was the best moment in your fighting game experience?”

J” There are two things. I had been getting close to win a tournament, but it was just close, not to win one. I had been stronger than Trashbox, but he started to win more than me and people started to say he is better than me. One day at the tournament of Ore Revo, I went to the final of a single elimination tournament and faced Trash Box.  On the pre-match interview I was so pumped up, but he was like…” I just do as usual”

K” You must have been pissed off. lol”

J” Yeah, but I won the tournament I was so glad.”

K” Congratulations!”

J ” The other thing was EVO Japan. It was right after an adjustment and Claw gets nerfed so much. I was thinking about quitting Claw after the tournament. I lost to Aiai(a famous Juri player) at the first match of the pool. But after crawling the loser’s bracket, it was aiai again before me at the losers’ final. At the time the member of Ore Revo cheered me a lot and gave me so much power. I was so happy to survive to the 2nd day with their cheer.”

K What would you say if you were to give some advice to yourself of 10 years ago?”

J I was second grade of junior high. I was doing pretty much nothing, so I would say “Do anything you want”. Once there was a time I wanted to be a comedian. If you try something, something might happen, or people may see you try hard. so just doing anything is better than doing nothing”

K” You said you were a comedian. Did you work hard then?”

J” I was a comedian, but I wasn’t famous at all. I tried solo and duo but I really didn’t thrive, it taught me something in my life, but I was not such a comedian then.

KDo you want to be a comedian once again?”

J “I don’t have rooms for being engaged two trades now, so I’m going to focus on the pro and do my best.”

KThen what about your goals in 10 years like having your own family.”

J ”Yeah, I want my family. I will be 34 then. It should be great if I am among the best players, but you don’t know what would happen in 10 years. I wish I will be married, work hard as a player and the WE-R1 is much bigger than now. Also of course, to make ends meet with this, that’s the most important thing”

K” Next, what is your favorite saying?”

JI just come up with “Custom makes all things easy”. I asked a lot of things and sometimes I make some mistakes like the time I did on stream, but it’s okay. The important thing is to learn from it and then get used to it not to repeat the same error”

K” Do you have any other message you want to say?

J” Esports has been hyped these days but I want you to remember the essence. There are some people who works extremely hard to become a professional, but I think you would be worn off, both your mind and your body. If you feel tired, you can just relax, and don’t forget to have fun. You will have some chance if you keep going and don’t feel so much burden for it

K” Thank you so much! Now We’re going to end with the word”

J、K ”We are One!”
