Admitting his inexperience in the game, he saw in the so-called “Project A” an opportunity to stand out and leave your mark.
I didn’t understand anything about FPS, I just knew how to play, I knew how to shoot. I was like any ranked kid, I know how to shoot, but I don’t understand anything about the game. Then they announced Project A. I still remember when I saw the first announcement. I got hyped, crazy, then I said ‘this is it, this one. There I will make my story.
Saadhak’s Path to LOUD
After two years at LOUD, Saadhak reveals that the decision to join the organization was not an easy one. His initial aspiration was MIBR, but he was convinced by the seriousness and ambition of the LOUD project, thanks to figures such as Sacy e Jean OrtegaCEO of the team.
I didn’t know anything about LOUD, I had no idea. I said ‘LOUD?, it’s a really big team from BR that has a team in cell phone games’, I wanted to go to MIBR, a big org, Made In Brazil. Then Sacy said ‘bro, wait, let’s talk to Jean’. We were almost closed with MIBR.
League of Legends also present

I would have spent about four, five years just playing CS. Until they released League of Legends, then it was another part of my life. LoL, like many, sucked my life, my hopes and I remember that I became very addicted to the game.
O human children of Sadhak
During the documentary, Less shares his first impressions of playing with Saadhak, highlighting the Argentine’s concern in getting to know him not just as a player, but as a person. This human and empathetic approach contributed to building a relationship of respect and friendship between the two.
