INTERVIEW WITH CHEW-ITS-MAFIA

Here is our interview with the winning team, Chew-Its Mafia and their Team captain IPS (@IPS_spl).

For those who don't know, Chew-Its Mafia is a team that is going from strength to strength. Apart from winning the Inkfest’s Pink Cup more recently, they also won 1st place at Hyper Splat, another UK tournament back in July of this year.

“We formed in January 2021 with the OG roster of Me (IPS), Samidge, Spore and Chris2, we then got a 5th player named Kenshin but he left around Summertime and eventually Snipez joined us. The team currently is more of a pick-up group which features players such as Cooldude and Ninjatrain on occaision."

The team has a variety of weapons they use. From Cooldude’s use of the powerful Nautilus to the Octobrush plays by Spore. They're very organised, with each player knowing their own roles to play in each match. The main support comes from IPS by the use of the N-Zap for paint control and ink armours. While Samidge uses sloshers, Chris with the Squeezer and NinjaTrain with the Tetra Dualies which all play in the slayer role. While we saw Snipez use Neo Splash-o-matic in the tournament. As a team, they're very flexible with a range of weapons and roles for any situation.

For those curious, we asked Chew-Its Mafia what their favourite mode is from the game and surprisingly, they chose Rainmaker.

"Our composition works really well in the mode and in general we find the fast paced action of it fun," IPS

Finally, we asked who the team's strongest pros were, to which IPS gave a very definitive answer:

“I would say our strongest pros are our chemistry together as a team after playing together for so long and also our shotcalling especially knowing when to push and capitalize off our opponents mistakes.”

Chew-Its Mafia played amazingly in the Inkfest Pink Cup and we wish them all the best for the upcoming Green Cup Grand Finals coming on the 30th of October.

Will we see another victory from Chew-Its this Saturday? Only time will tell...
