How do we start playing Red Alert?
“I posted it on the computer. I saw my aunt play, hey.. it’s fun to play, so I went to play and I was hooked.”

Tell me a little bit when you see me play. And makes us want to play games?
“Auntie played a shooting game, military style, and I saw it and I thought it was cool. it looks fun When he did not play on the computer The rats and sisters are going to play together. will share playing time It’s fun to play I kept playing until I finally got addicted to the game.”

How many hours have you ever played a game in a row?
“Almost 24 hours, apart from taking a shower, I do everything in front of my computer.”

How old were you then?
“Since elementary school, about 5th grade, 6th grade, I’ve been addicted to games. But at that time, it wasn’t as much as during the middle school. If it was during the semester break, it was playing continuously for almost 2 days without sleeping at all. I fell asleep again around 2:30 p.m. the next day.”

Parents must be complaining about being addicted to games like this?
“At first he complained. Because I’m the eldest brother, have younger siblings, and have relatives who are cousins. Everyone was doing something after me. When I played the game, everyone played the same game as me. play as a family It’s a party At home, they complained a lot. Used to have internet plugs as well. because I played too hard He wanted to play for only 2 hours a day and then rest. but after I can divide my study time. Studying, I didn’t fall. At home, I stopped complaining.”

From the episode that was addicted to heavy games, playing for almost 2 days, how did BB manage to control himself? So that it doesn’t affect learning?
“Lately, I have been able to divide the time. after school One o’clock until midnight, one o’clock in the morning, I will sit and play games. homework or reports I will finish it at school. I’m not going to play games in the classroom at all. I study hard with a lecturer so that I don’t lose focus so I only do things related to studying. If you have homework or work I will try to complete it in one day or two if the first day is not finished. I will do half of it first. The next day, I will hurry to finish it. I have the idea that I have to finish every task ahead of schedule so that I can have a lot of free time.”

“In the study We should concentrate on studying in class. and then lecture. When it’s time for the exam, I will read at least 3 times. I will divide it into the first round, read through my eyes, round 2, read and write down the lecture. Round 3, just read the lecture and do the keywords. As for the 4th round. Above will only read keywords. It will make us remember the things we learned during high school to university. I will read a lot of books, while in middle school, I will read comics and novels more. The grades have never been a problem. Because in my room, I study hard. When the class is over, if I have cleared all my homework, I have finished all my work. I will play the game alone. Friends who see the game will be confused as to why the score is not bad or why it is top again. They would be surprised, but actually, I read a lot of books as well, just splitting the time.”

I want BB to give advice to young people who want to play games. But studying is not good, what should I do?
“There must be a certain level of self-discipline. If it is time to study I really want you to focus on that. Remember the content and give lectures on the important things that the teacher teaches. Let’s focus on that very much. It’s almost time for the exam. When we come to read the words that the teacher taught. It will remember itself. After studying, we want to rest. We can do our best. Make it a hobby.”

Beautiful memories of BB’s childhood games?
“It is a memory of the brothers and sisters who are relatives. mice play games together play the same game I want to enter this dungeon. then invites younger brothers and sisters to help beat, sit and play with 5 people, play games together.”

I want BB to recommend the youngsters who are in the bad group. What should I do?
“Actually, it’s up to us to choose. If where we are is really not good for us, move out better.”

How did BB get started playing League of Legends?
“At first, I played on the computer first, my friend invited me to play. I didn’t play seriously. just playing with friends didn’t compete but it’s my favorite game and enough in the phone I’m looking forward I have been playing since the first day until today.”

“During the national team He was selected as an All-Star. I want all my friends to come in, but the rule is to recruit the best players in each position. when being selected The practice continued until the day of the SEA Games. The first day was to attend the opening ceremony of the SEA Games. I didn’t think that my own life would stand at this point. went on behalf of the national team I have seen many things, met foreign friends, learned languages, a lot of stories happened, and it was very fun. There is one story that I really want to tell. One night I wanted to go out to eat Shabu Shabu around 3am. There is Shabu open 24 hours. Me and my friends take a taxi. It’s about 3 kilometers from the hotel. When we reach there, the taxi sends us off and we go. When we look for the shop, it appears that the shop is closed. Oh, it says it’s open 24 hours. So I walk from there back to the hotel. At night, the city has no people at all. It’s very quiet. Bangkok doesn’t have an atmosphere like this at all. Because no one came out to walk, it was strange.”

How proud BB is to be a Thai national team athlete?
“I’m very proud to be given this opportunity. My whole life was born 22 years. I didn’t think that we would come to stand at this point. went to walk in the SEA Games athletes parade at the opening ceremony I feel like this life doesn’t exist anymore. There will be once in a lifetime I’m really happy to be able to participate in this time.”

Before going to the BB race, do you think you’ll get a medal?
“Actually in the tournament before this match Had a pre-tournament before, the mice came in second place, losing to the Philippines who won the gold medal. So I think that I should get a coin, not 1 2 3, a coin back. Because I believe in my team too.”
