Team 2z had an amazing QuakeCon. After the team won the Sacrifice tournament at the Quake World Championships, one of their members went on to win the Duels tournament. Clawz showed a ridiculous attention to detail in his shutout victory against seasoned vet Voo and when asked about his preparation for the 1v1 tournament, his response was hilarious. "For Duels, we didn't actually practice," said Clawz. Wow. Please take a look at the rest of the interview to get to know the true Quake Champions of QuakeCon 2017, Team 2z.
