Don’t call me Xesus – Interview with Paul Heaver

As promised, the 4th installment in my Worlds experience report. My interview with Three Time World Champion and “X-wing Jesus”, Paul Heaver.

Paul is very approachable and always willing to chat, so I took the opportunity to ask him some questions on behalf of dockingbay416.com

He gives us some interesting insight into how he prepared for his three consecutive Worlds X-wing titles.

He also tells us a little bit about his game last year at the Imperial Assault Worlds final and his thoughts on the new Jabba’s Realm and Wave 8 expansions. (04:00 min)

Finally, I ask him some personal questions regarding his rock-star status in the nerd realm. (08:09 min)
