One of the most unique tournament organizers of the last decade has always been Mike “ElvenShadow” Boczar. Having spent the greater part of his career organizing events living in Japan, he always came back home to his native Chicago to run Frosty Faustings over the course of his winter break from work.
Now relocated back to Chicago with wife and child in tow, Boczar hasn’t slowed down on two things: his passion for running Frosty Faustings and his love of the Guilty Gear series, the latter of which plays a big part in the aforementioned event–name notwithstanding! This is the point of Boczar’s life where our very own Luke “Woocash” Siuty caught up with him on behalf of Red Bull eSports to discuss the event, and his time playing in Japan. He also talks about the time where he was beating top players such as Abegen and Kishitaka with players commenting behind him that “foreigners don’t play Guilty Gear.”
