On March 27th, Game of Honor Show aired the final round of the Alliance Vs. the World Tournament. After defeating various opponents on the roster, Corruption 2.0’s Mason and Judas King squared off against the team of Matt Edwards and John Princeton to see which team would eventually face The Alliance (consisting of Kunai and Blackburn) at Gaming Evolve for the GOH CO-OP Championships. After an intense couple of rounds of Lethal League Blaze, Mason and Judas defeated Matt and Princeton and became the new number-one contenders GOH CO-OP Championships. Now, Corruption 2.0 will face The Alliance for their GOH CO-OP Championships at Gaming Evolve.
As always, I decided to catch up with Princeton after his loss and asked him a variety of questions. These questions are regarding his thoughts about losing the CO-OP match, how he trained for it, and what his plans are for this season’s show moving forward. Click here to watch the episode where Corruption 2.0 claimed victory before reading the interview below.
Diego: How do you feel about your co-op match in The Alliance Vs. The World Tournament against Mason and Judas King? Did you train for the match or form a game-plan with Matt Edwards?
Princeton: For the first two rounds, we didn't have a plan. It was just a random match-up. We had planned-out things for the finals, but things didn't work out since we thought we would be playing a different game.
What are your thoughts about Matt Edwards as a solo-competitor and teammate? Do you think he gave it everything he had in the tournament’s final round—knowing that he still has a chance to win the Pre-Order Bonus?
I always thought Matt Edwards was fodder, a weakling of a solo competitor. However, in a team-setting, Matt's literally what I "was" looking for in a partner. To answer your question, I do believe he gave it his all, but as a previous co-op champion, I know that being on the same page is very important and it can cost you a match.
I think Matt would have loved to beat Corruption then moved on to defeat The Alliance to win the co-op championships again. If he wins the Pre-Order Bonus, he could've become the first epic champion (a player who holds two championships).
What are your thoughts about Corruption 2.0’s Mason and Judas King based on your match with them in the final round of the Alliance Vs. The World Tournament? Do you believe you underestimated their potential, or do you think the match was a fluke on your part?
Oh, I 100% agree with you, it was a fluke. I didn't know much about the game I was playing. Corruption 2.0 has p***ed me off. To be honest, I don't see the team lasting that long because when I ran Corruption, we made an impact because I made sure it was on a tight leash. What has Corruption 2.0, done?
Do you have any desire to face Mason King in a one-on-one match (regardless if a championship is on-the-line) since he decided to steal the Corruption name from you and rebrand it as his own?
I would love for a 1v1 against Mason King, and it doesn't even have to be in gaming honestly. If I catch Mason in the streets, he better watch himself.
Do you believe Lethal League Blaze was a good choice for the match? If not, what game do you think would’ve been better to play Corruption 2.0 in and why?
I would've loved to do a multi-battle in Pokemon. Sword and Shield just came out--so it was a hot topic.
Despite losing to Corruption 2.0, what are your thoughts about your previous matches in the tournament against Beauty & The Gnome and Airstrike?
I started becoming good friends with Kawaii Britt, so it was a fun match-up. Airstrike was formidable, and I know they'll become champions soon. Those guys are so talented! I hope those two do good!
Has your self-confidence and esteem been affected in any-way since leaving your old Corruption companions behind? Do you ever plan to form another group, or do you feel “riding solo” is the best option for you going forward?
I've fallen into this odd feeling. I feel so forsaken, to be honest. I realized that I let a lot of my ego make choices for me for the wrong. Life's better when you have people in it. I would love to build a new team, but right now, I should focus on a solo career.
Now that the contender-ship for the GOH CO-OP Championships is out the window for you, what other championships do you plan on setting your sights on? Are you interested in taking Manny’s open challenge at Gaming Evolve for his GOH Internet Championship?
There's one championship in Game of Honor that has slipped by my fingers twice now. I made a promise to be the first-ever legendary champion, that's a person who has won all the championships in the show, I can’t fulfill that destiny if I don't win the world championship.
Are there any last comments you’d like to share with the Game of Honor Show fanbase watching at home? If so, what would you like to tell them?
Eat your veggies, stay safe in this crazy world, wash your hands, and hide your miracle seeds.
