SILENTGAMING joins another genre and we're happy to introduce our new player who's going to represent us in an additional gaming title.

˝Welcome to our new Smash 4 fighter Mark "Kepler" Walker! ˝

SILENTGAMING

Mark “Kepler” Walker started playing competitively in 2016. He's improved rapidly through never-ending training and consistent tournament attendance across all of Switzerland and even abroad. After just one year, he managed to get a top 5 spot in the Swiss Smash 4 Power Ranking of 2017. He’s known for his analytical approach to the game with taking notes whenever he can and is always trying to find optimal strategies to beat his opponents.

Kepler about his addition to SILENTGAMING:

Why SILENTGAMING?

Als ich noch neu war in der kompetitiven Smash Bros Szene, malte ich mir aus, wie cool es sein würde von einem Esports Team gesponsert zu werden. SILENTGAMING war da definitiv eines meiner "Dream Picks". Mir gefiel die Professionalität, mit der sie auftraten, und der Name. Ich denke auch, dadurch dass ich für SILENTGAMING spiele, viel mehr Leute von Smash als Esport hören werden. Die Smash Szene ist zwar nicht klein, könnte aber definitiv mehr Bekanntheit gebrauchen. So kann ich also vielleicht auch der Community einen kleinen Dienst leisten.

When I was new in the competitive Smash Bros scene, I was dreaming about how cool it would be to get sponsored by an esports team. SILENTGAMING was definitely one of my "dream picks". I like how professional they seem and I like the name. Also I think that many people will hear about Smash as an esports title, when I'll play for SILENTGAMING. The Smash scene isn't small, but it could need more exposure. In that way I can give something back to the community.

What are my goals?

Ich folge zurzeit drei wichtigen Zielen. Zum ersten möchte ich ein Top Spieler auf Europaniveau sein, dazu werde ich nicht nur in der Schweiz gute Leistungen erbringen müssen, sondern vor Allem auch im Ausland. Zum zweiten möchte ich auch neben dem Spielen, an Bekanntheit gewinnen, beispielsweise durch Streaming oder YouTube Videos. Das dritte Ziel handelt vom neusten Smash Bros. Titel für die Nintendo Switch, der im Herbst oder Winter veröffentlicht wird. Es wird viele neue Charaktere und hoffentlich auch neue Spielmechaniken einführen. Ich möchte schon beim Release einen guten Start hinlegen.

Currently I'm following three goals. First I want to be one of the top players in Europe, therefore I need to perform internationally and not only in Switzerland. Second I want to become more popular, for example with streaming or with YouTube videos. Third goal is about the new Smash Bros. Gaming title for the Nintendo Switch which will coming out this fall or winter. There will be a lot of new characters and hopefully new gaming mechanics. I would like to start nicely at the release from the game.

Are you excited to play for SILENTGAMNG?

Ich freue mich unglaublich fest auf die spannende Zeit, die jetzt kommen wird! Ich muss aber zugeben, dass ich auch etwas nervös bin. Wenn man einem Team beitritt, bekommt man schnell das Gefühl, dass man nichts mehr falsch machen darf (was natürlich völliger Quatsch ist). Ich freue mich auch schon darauf, all die anderen Mitglieder von SILENTGAMING kennenzulernen und so neue Freundschaften zu schliessen.

I can't wait for the exciting time which is coming! But I have to admint, I'm a little bit nervous. When you join a team, you get the feeling of not being able to make any mistakes (what isn't true of course). I can't wait to meet all the SILENTGAMING members, get to know them and find new friends.

We're happy about our new addition and are super excited to see him fight through the next tournaments!

Kepler missed his chance for a Smash 4 Circuit qualification very close on the 17th rank. Now Smash 4 Circuit is giving five players another chance of a spot! The five most liked player suggestion will be added to an official poll, which will determine who's getting the last spot.

Please support Kepler by up voting his name suggestion! Thank you for your support!
