In our final interview in the run up to Insomnia we had a chat with Fraser ‘Frazehh’ Sollom to get his thoughts on his team, i63 and the UK scene as a whole. Frazehh is currently the main awp for CeX but has been playing for the vast majority of his life. Fraser began playing Counter Strike Source when he was 4 years old on his dad’s PC.

This is the final of six interviews with various team captains and team players. This time we [...]

Over the course of that time, many new faces have not been forced to see this wonderful masterpiece that I have created.
