Posted on: 16.09.2015 22:37
D@NG3R` : Hello bro how are you ?
kzz1lla : hi, I'm good. How are you?
D@NG3R` : I am awesome thank you.
D@NG3R` : Before we start this interview can you tell us a little bit about yourself ?
kzz1lla : Of course.
kzz1lla : My name is Khalid Zayed, I am 21 years old, I am currently studying law in college and going to graduate after 2 years.
D@NG3R` : What do you do for fun do you have any hobbies ?
kzz1lla : I only have one hobbie that I do almost every weekend which is sand climbing.
D@NG3R` : Sand climbing? I've never heard of that, but it sounds really awesome! Please share with us what that actually is :D
kzz1lla : Sand climbing is well known hobbie in the middle east (Qatar, U.A.E and KSA... etc). Sand climbing is like a drag race,
but in a different style. We do it in sand hills. Most of us go to Moreeb dunes (Al Moreb Hill) its a place for orgnaised drag races.
Moreeb Hill is supposedly the tallest dune in the UAE, and one of the largest and highest sand hills in the world.
You need a super 4wheeler to climb that scary hill!
D@NG3R` : Wow that sounds really fun and d@ng3rous have fun with that!
D@NG3R` : You recently began recording demos for XJ some of them were very good and unexpected for some people. You took maps like: bn_tombbhop with a 4 sec difference from shNz you also took kz_highlands which is also a pretty mindblowing demo what can you tell us about those demos? Were they hard to record and how much time did it took you to make them ?
kzz1lla : Yes, I started record for XJ recently, I actually wasn't interested in demo recording, most of my time was in nobkz servers but because of the insane times I made in nobkz servers
and the 160+ Unofficial World Records lrs and WOOFix and some of my friends saw something in me, they started convicing me in demo recording espically in XJ,
so I decided to start recording for XJ, otherwise I should've been recording since 2013 but anyway.. :d
Some of the demos were hard and I wasted a lot of time until I did the WR, because I was sure that I will do it and its just a matter of attempts and time and I have a lot of patience.
bn_tombbhop wasn't hard at all, kz_highlands was easy to beat too, but it took me 5 days to beat it just because of that stupid hard shortcut!
D@NG3R` : When did your "kz journey" begin ?
kzz1lla : It began when I joined random public server in 2010, the map was kz_longjumps2, players were doing longjumps and I was like what the hell are they doing?! Seems interesting!
I liked what they do and I started as longjump geeker, but do you believe that no body guided me? I was spectating players and I learned things by myself,
in 2012 I found Xtreme-Jumps.eu and other communities and in 2012/2013 I made 255 longjump block and 247 bhop block, but before that in 2011 I was rarely playing in nobkz server and XJ servers,
the first kz map i played was bkz_goldbhop. In 2013/2014 I started playing kz/bhop/slide/speed maps a lot.
D@NG3R` : Okay so you've got a 5 year experience and now you are performing very well in my opinion. I would definitely like to see more of you. Can we expect more demos from you in the near future ?
kzz1lla : I can't promise for more demos tho because my college will start soon enough, but I will try my best and I hope that I get bkz_goldbhop one day!
D@NG3R` : Good luck in college bro I hope everything goes smooth there. Would be nice to finally see a new goldbhop record it's been a while since KeltA took it and there is still no responce from nobody. Im rooting for you :)
kzz1lla : Thx!
D@NG3R` : I was told you have a pretty good PC configuration can you tell us about it? If you are ok with it ofc.

D@NG3R` : Daaamnnn... that's a pretty nice setup bro :D How much does all of this cost ?
kzz1lla : Somewhere around 11K$
D@NG3R` : Okay.... sounds about right :D moving on. Did you had any idols when you started playing kz? And do you look up to someone right now?
kzz1lla : I do not have an idol because I didn't care much about demo recording, but I do have someone who inspired me which is lrs and WOOFix
D@NG3R` : Lately you've been blamed for cheating in your demos what do you think about those accusations ?
kzz1lla : Well, most of XJ members here don't actually know me, so I don't blame them for blaming me. But I hope they will change their mind :)
D@NG3R` : Why do you think they think that ? Is it maybe of the big time differences of the taken demos or maybe some of the combos you make or whatever reason you can think of ?
kzz1lla : I think some of them think that I'm cheating because of the big time differences, and some of them are just doing that for fun by accusing someone of cheating just because they don't like him. But if you take a good look at my demos, you will see that most of them have hard shortcuts like bkz_wallblock, kz_highlands and even trC_climbgarden etc.
But at the end of the line you cannot accuse someone of cheating without any proof.
D@NG3R` : Do you have any maps in mind that you really want to beat in the future? You told me about goldbhop, but I didn't ask you about any others.
kzz1lla : I hope that in the near future I can get my hands on bkz_goldbhop, kz_cellblock, kz_kzsca_oasis, kz_facility, kz_alpin, kz_ezalpin, kz_explorer, j2s_4floors, bkm_problock and kz_ea_canals, because those maps are the most wanted ones for me :P
D@NG3R` : Reaching straight for the top are we? :D. All I can do is wish you good luck bro :)
kzz1lla : Thank you !
D@NG3R` : Okay man here's my last question. Do you see someone as a threat to you? If you keep recording do you think someone will try to stop you ?
kzz1lla : hmm, if there was someone as a threat it would be Bibika or shNz . But stop me? I don't think so, because I'm a challenger! ^^
D@NG3R` : Wow okay I hope that's true because if so I think we will witness great battles in the future :) aight bro I took a lot of your time are you ready for the quick questions ?
kzz1lla : No worries bro.
kzz1lla : Go ahead!
