EPIKWHALE PLAYER SPOTLIGHT (SFX CAR IGNITION STARTS, MUSIC) EPIK WHALE: MY NAME IS SHANE COTTON. I LIVE IN REDONDO BEACH, CALIFORNIA… …WITH MY MOM, DAD, AND BROTHER. THE WEATHER’S REALLY NICE AND ALL MY FAMILY IS CLOSE BY. I’M A VERY COMPETITIVE PERSON. WHEN I SET MY MIND ON SOMETHING… I JUST GO FULL FORCE ON THAT. MY PLAYER NAME IS EPIK WHALE. AND I’M 16 YEARS OLD. USUALLY IN COMPETITIVE MATCHES I PLAY SAFE, BUT IN CASUAL, PUBLIC MATCHES, I JUST PUSH EVERYONE I SEE. ANNOUNCER: OOH RIGHT, THE TRAPLING! BROTHER: HE DEFINITELY HAS A PROBLEM SOLVING STRATEGIC MIND. I SEE IT WHEN HE PLAYS. HE’S 3 MOVES AHEAD OF EVERYONE ELSE. ANNOUNCER: EPIK WHALE, USING THE LAUNCH PADS RIGHT AWAY. EPIK WHALE: WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, MY FIRST RUBIK’S CUBE. I SAW IT LAYING AROUND THE HOUSE. I PICKED IT UP AND REALIZED THAT I COULDN’T SOLVE IT SO I SPENT MONTHS LEARNING IT. (HOW LONG?) EPIK WHALE: 30 SECONDS. (ALRIGHT, GOOD JOB) EPIK WHALE: THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN FORTNITE AND RUBIK’S CUBE ARE JUST THE PROBLEM SOLVING AND GETTING FOCUSED. I TRY TO BREAK THE GAME DOWN TO A SCIENCE… AND SOLVE IT FASTER AND FASTER. IN FORTNITE YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO THINK QUICK. IT’S MADE ME ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE WORLD. I WAKE UP AT AROUND 7AM AND I GO TO SCHOOL UNTIL 2PM… AND THEN I TRY TO GET MY HOMEWORK DONE. I CURRENTLY TAKE COLLEGE CLASSES SO THAT WHEN I GRADUATE I’LL BE PRETTY MUCH BE DONE WITH MY FIRST 2 YEARS OF COLLEGE. AFTER HOMEWORK I USUALLY PRACTICE FROM AROUND
5 TO 10:30 OR 11:30 AT NIGHT. IT’S ALL ABOUT TIME MANAGEMENT AND, THAT’S THE REASON WHY I QUALIFIED FOR DUOS AND SOLOS IN THE FORTNITE WORLD CUP. ANNOUNCER: THERE’S A REASON WHY HE’S IN 1ST PLACE. YOU HAVE TO BE THE BEST. BROTHER: WHEN SHANE QUALIFIED FOR SOLOS… HE SAID OH I NEED A STREAMING PC. WE BOTH ARE KIND OF INTO COMPUTERS AND BUILDING ‘EM EPIK WHALE: WE BOLTED MY WHOLE COMPUTER ONTO A ONE WAY STREET SIGN. BROTHER: HE ENDED UP ACTUALLY PUTTING SOME COOL LIGHTS ON IT WITH A RAM STICK. EPIK WHALE: AND THAT’S WHAT I USE TO HANDLE MY STREAMING SO THAT I DON’T LAG WHILE I’M PLAYING. ANNOUNCER: EPIK WHALE’S CLEANING UP ELIMINATIONS ON THIS PUSH. EPIK WHALE: I’M A FOCUSED PLAYER. ANNOUNCER: EPIK WHALE TAKING DOWN. EPIK WHALE: CALCULATED. CONSISTENT ANNOUNCER: THAT WAS MONSTROUS. EPIK WHALE: IT’S CRAZY THAT’S IT’S FINALLY COME THIS FAR. IT DEFINITELY FEELS REALLY GOOD.
