Interview with Indy

sgeht indy

Hello, Indy! In the URTL match of Sgeht against Infinity Seven people got to see you as the saviour of Sgeht. You did really well and won 3 games to decide the series. Please introduce yourself.

Hello everyone. Igor ‘Indy’ Kaczmarek here. I am 19 years old Protoss player from Poland. I play StarCraft 2 since 2011 Feb. I love playing this game because its individual game and its quite hard to be really good.

How do you think about your performance against Infinity Seven yourself?

To be very honest my performance was not good – at least in my eyes – because I used random strategies and I improvized pretty much everything there. Also fun thing is that I slept for 5 hours before clan war and when my teammates were tired because it was 2 a.m. here in Europe I could play pretty comfortably, my eyes were not closing randomly. Even if it seemed pretty good I could have done better.

As many readers probably already know you are what one could call a community figure in Poland. What made you famous?

Well I have been streaming a lot during holiday time. It was more than 200 hours in one month I believe. It was both hard work and fun to me.

I wish someday I could go to some prohouse for example holiday time and practice very very hard for 3 months or longer and improve my gameplay.

I was also commentating a lot of matches online, but my biggest thing in terms of casting is IEM Katowice where I was polish commentator and it was my greatest casting adventure ever. But surprisingly for some people I still enjoy playing more than casting even if I am really good at it too (that’s what people say of course :p).
Lately I also record and put up videos for my YouTube channel – for example I did some analysis with Nerchio regarding his ZvT against Kas.

Focussing on your play, how do you think your matchups are developing in HotS and do you think the new game suits your style better?

I enjoy HotS more than WoL.

It is something new and fresh. My style is quite passive because my macro is way stronger than my army positioning but I will work on that harder (mothership opens so many options of harassment) and become better.

What development do you expect in the future regarding your skill level, you within Sgeht and your casting? Do you have plans?

I will obviously practice to become better. I am looking for professional team with practice partners available at any point of time which want to play 15 games in a row. I think its one of the most efficient ways of practice. Most important thing is not to stay at the same level because overall skill in StarCraft has grown drastically over the last 2 years.

In terms of my casting side I think I will leave it as it is now.

When there is a big thing I will gladly cast it unless I will be participant. My plan is to stay with StarCraft for a really long time, now as a player and maybe someday in the future as a commentator.

Thanks for your time and the benefit  you have already been for Sgeht. Feel free to close this interview with a few open words.

I help you guys in leagues and such because you are nice people. More importantly you are honest and I always look for that in any organisation. Keep up your awesome work and attitude.
