Interview: Bubbles & Lolita from Mixed Chicks

Pyro chickHot off the press… down the wires… over the wi-fi… through the Ethernet and slamming hard into your PC comes this exclusive interview with Bubbles and Lolita from Mixed Chicks.  Previously we heard about Mixed Chicks, South Africa’s largest all female online Gaming Organisation. Now hear more about the founders – Yolanda “Lolita” Green and Daniela “Bubbles” Rust – from the founders.

TF2CSA: Thanks for agreeing to do the interview. What sparked you to create a Chicks only MGO?

We were having a nice weekend together at MPLD ( Monthly Pretoria LAN), and were having some drinks and kinda started joking about it – you know, starting one. On the following Monday we agreed to do it for real. Initially it was CoD4 team and three major gaming divisions CoD4, CSS and Warcraft. A few months later, we had had approximately 45 chicks!

Is Mixed Chicks participating in any Online Leagues at the moment?

None at the moment.

Do you think Mixed Chicks has a future with TF2?

We hope it does. We are working on creating some competitive teams in different gaming areas in preparation for next year. We would like to expand TF2 and become more involved.

During the December OC, TF2CSA is running a Draft LAN Competition, any chance MC will be there?

There would almost certainly be Mixed Chick girls present at OC this December.  I [Bubbles] will unfortunately be in Namibia but we are hoping to attend future OC’s. We would be really impressed if some of the MC girls participated in the TF2 Draft LAN competition.

What can the TF2 community do to help get Mixed Chicks more involved with TF2?

We are looking for more girls in the TF2 community, so if you know of any, it would be much appreciated if they could be directed to us.

TF2CSA: Thanks very much for the time and feedback. We’d like to wish MC all the best for the future.
