This week we catch up with Revenge player, AJ!

For those who might not know you, can you introduce just who is AJ?

Hey there I’m AJ, I'm a 21 year old university graduate, streamer and content creator who currently plays R6 for Revenge.

For you competitive matches who are your go to operators and what drew you to them?

Currently my go to operators are Ash on attack with the girls droning me in, I don’t think I need to explain how good Ash is, right? On defence I do play a lot of Jager *insert smirk face here* but also Smoke, who doesn’t love the smg-11.

You recently joined Revenge.GG alongside the rest of your line-up, what are your current goals as a team?

Currently our goals include improving ourselves to be the best we can be individually and also as a team, we are looking forward to CCSW next year and in the meantime we will be playing in some of the T4 Community Leagues. We are competing in the UKIN 2 Quals, we will try our hardest to qualify, we are still a relatively new roster with some recent roster changes, so the team's best is all I can ask, proud and happy regardless.

Playing competitively is commonly seen as a very different experience to ranked Rainbow Six Siege, do you have any good advice for finding a team?

Outside of the usual looking-for-team channels in the relevant discords, twitter is your go to space, put yourself out there. When trialing for a team don't think about it too much either, be yourself, don't be nervous and the most important thing is to have fun. No point playing if you don't have fun doing it.

Last week we saw you face off for a spot in UKIN Second Division among 14 other teams at epic.LAN 31, how did you find the experience?

Honestly myself and the team enjoyed it so much, it was the first time any of us had competed in an event like epic.LAN. Even though we might have not done as well as people hoped we learnt so much from it and now we will be back next time even stronger. So happy with how the team did as a whole, more hard work is coming!

Create your own team - you are the coach, what 5 players are you picking up? It can be any player Pro or Am across the world.

All that needs to be said is:

Pengu + Shaiiko + Beaulo + CTZN + Goga = ez dubs

Any final comments or places for people to follow you?

I wanna say thanks to all those that support myself and my team no matter how many L’s we rake in. Promise we will get another dub out there for you soon!

If you want to keep up to date with myself or the team you can follow me on twitter @AbsoluteAJ

I also stream regularly on twitch, so make sure to come say hi!
