How many hours of Halo do you need to play per day to be at pro/semi-pro skill?
IGotUrPistola (4:01 PM)
Honestly? I only play about 2 hours a day. With my team or by myself to keep my skill level up. You don't have to play too much.
Gonzo (Oak Lawn, Illinois)
Pistola, with your back-to-back MVPs how will your team and you follow up into Dallas?
IGotUrPistola (4:02 PM)
Hmmmm...I think we'll do great in Dallas. I feel like we didn't click in the championship in Columbus. I think we'll do amazing. I think at least top two.
Hey Pistola, who do you think is the better sniper on your team. You or Hysteria??
IGotUrPistola (4:03 PM)
Man! That's a mean question! I think Hysteria is definitely a better sniper than me. He can just get whatever he wants. BAM! And I love him. He's the man.

You played amazing at both columbus and meadowlands Earning the MVP award twice. Which event do you feel you played better at overall?
IGotUrPistola (4:04 PM)
I feel at Meadows, I played my best. But I am hoping at Dallas I play my best. We feel amazing and that we'll win. But I think Meadows was my best.

what is the hardest thing about being a pro?
IGotUrPistola (4:06 PM)
It's actually not that bad. The only thing that's hard is there's always negative and positive comments. You just can't let the negative ones effect you. Take them as positive. "Hey Pistola, I hate you." I say thank you.

IGotUrPistola (4:08 PM)
Halo is definitely my favorite video game. My second is definitely The Legend. Left for Dead is cool too.
Pistola what is it like being on a team with SK? Also how did it feel to get that championship win in meadowlands?
IGotUrPistola (4:10 PM)
It feels great teaming with SK. He's great. He's a great guy. Honest person. He's almost like an older brother to me. It felt great winning Meadows. Getting a championship under my belt. I'm just glad we won.
How does Triggers Down deal after losing a match, to keep your head in the game?
IGotUrPistola (4:11 PM)
Basically we talk about what we did wrong. We realize what we did wrong and fix it. WE stay positive. Confident. Have a good time, have fun. THe best part about Halo is having fun.
How does it feel to be considered one of the best players in the league?
IGotUrPistola (4:12 PM)
It feels great to be recognized as a good player. If you're good at something, it feels good to have people notice.

Your position confuses me, you tend to position your self as a support player, yet your score suggests that your the main slayer. What would you say your position accually is?
IGotUrPistola (4:13 PM)
I think everybody on our team, we do everything. We slay, we do objective we support each other. A win is a win.
how does your parents feel about you being a pro gamer? Cause my parents wont let me.
IGotUrPistola (4:14 PM)
My parents go to every single event with me. They said they're really proud of me and they're happy for me. I'm just glad they're my family and they support me in whatever I do.

What was the first MLG event you attended?
IGotUrPistola (4:15 PM)
It was Charlotte '07. That was the very first MLG event I ever attended. It was only an hour and a half drive, so I said let's go.
How did you get noticed?
IGotUrPistola (4:16 PM)
I feel like I started to get noticed in 2009. I felt like SK thought that I had something and they wanted to see what I could do. So, I feel like I started to get noticed in 2009.

Do you consider the new Carbon with Walshy and Strongside a threat? If not, how good do you think they will do?
IGotUrPistola (4:18 PM)
I consider every team a big threat. You can never overlook a team. We'll have to see what they can do. I think they'll do great. They're all legends.
IGotUrPistola (4:19 PM)
I would like to thank my family, friends and fans. Thanks for supporting me. It's been a great year so far, hopefully it will continue to be a great year. Go TD!
