ImageWe are continuing our FIFA interview series with Bruce, who is SK Gaming's new FIFA player.

1. Hello Bruce, I know that lot of people know you, but for those who do not, introduce yourself to us a little please.

Well hello ! As you said my name is Bruce Grannec, I'm 25 years old, and i'm living next to Paris, in Chilly Mazarin. I'm in the professional tour for 8 years now, first on PES, then on FIFA. I was world champion on PES5 in 2006 and vice world champion on PES6. Then i was world Champion on FIFA09 in 2009, 3rd in 2010 and vice world champion in 2012. Football as always be a very important part of my life. I practice it very often with friend, but i don't have the same level as with a gamepad (Laugh). I'm a fan of FC Nantes,a division 2 french team and of the great A.C. Milan. I grandi club non muoiono mai. I'm playing a bit of CS:GO aswell and i must admit that's a pretty cool game, even if i heard that there are some discussions about it.

2. What do you think about new FIFA ?

FIFA13 is, for me, the best football game ever produced. To be honest, i didn't had much fun on FIFA 10, 11 & 12. This one need to be played a little more bit, but it looks like a blast. They've added first touch control, which add unpredictability to the game, and really worked on construction stage of the game. It's not anymore box to box like it was on some previous versions. The best example is Barcelona who was simply unplayable before and who is now a very strong team on FIFA13. Add to this some details who has been corrected, and you get a real evolution of the game.

3. You are also a new member of SK. Is it the top of your career for you?

Obviously, yes. SK Gaming is a legendary team, and it such an honor to be a part of it. Now, i'm not here to take photos and to brag about it. I have maybe 2 or 3 more years in front of me for playing at a top level, i want to win one more world champion title before retiring, and i want to bring it to SK Gaming.

4. On which big event are you preparing right now?

Well, FIFA season is not as intense as a SC2 season unfortunately, but there is some pretty bigs events showing up. Next one will be ESWC in Paris at the end of October. It'll be the first major event on FIFA13 and I'm very, very excited about it.

5. What do you consider as your greatest achievement in FIFA ?

Well, it's not a title, even if i'm proud of each one. It's more my consistency over the years. I clearly think that FIFA is the most difficult game of eSport scene, because it's football you know. It's basically unpredictable. Everything can happen on one single game. If you're the best in SC2, you'll win 10 times on 10. On FIFA, you'll maybe win 7 times, do a draw 2 times and loose once. If you had each year a new version which can be more or less completely different from the previous one, you get the most difficult game if you want to stay at the top every time.

6. And the last question: Where can other players find you, or where can they challenge you in FIFA ?

I don't played that much online before, but now I'm starting to do some online sessions with my fans. To play with me, just check my Facebook page and Twitter account and drop me a message when I announce it. I then will add you to PS3 or XBO360 to play with you. It's all that simple ! :-)
