Presenting: MnT Thompxson
Everyone at Mentality Esports loves fighting games, that's no secret. Whether its as a player or a spectator, nothing beats the rush of a good fighting game. Today, we're excited to announce our next journey into the Fighting Game scene, with our new Killer Instinct player! Presenting: Mentality Thompxson. I got the chance to talk to Thompxson recently, and here's what he had to say about joining the Mentality Family.
So for starters, introduce yourself to the Mentality Family, your name, what game you play, who you main, any details that you’d like to share.
My name is Deion Thompson, [I play] Killer Instinct, and [my main] is Jago
How long have you been playing KI?
What drew you to start playing KI, and then what drew you to playing competitively?
Ive been playing the original KI on the SNES since I was a kid and always played it growing up with my dad, so after about 20 years of waiting they announced the new KI for the Xbox, so I just had to get it. I didnt know anything about playing competitively, but my online friend who did know about competitive play did and noticed how good I was and told me I should compete.
What’s the history behind your tag?
I couldnt think of anything creative, but I like Kingdom Hearts so I just used my last name and slapped the X in there somewhere.
What are some of your best placements so far?
Ive won several KI tournaments, Multiple top 8's, KI champion of CB16, CEO16, SCR16, NEC16, KiT17 and 18.
Out of all the events you’ve been to, which has been your favorite?
CEO's my favorite.
What events can we expect to see you at in the future?
Probably any tournament with KI announced along with a pot bonus preferably.
Is there any shoutouts you’d like to give, and anything you’d like to say to the Mentality family?
I'd like to shoutout my friends and family, the Jago group, and Jmart for believing in me and giving me the chance to grow and become a professional KI player, and Thanks for letting me be a part of Mentality.
We're very happy to have Thompxson on board at Mentality Esports, and we can't wait to see him and his Jago demolish the Killer Instinct scene under the MnT Banner!
