The Pon Pon, Bad Juju and his W Key, Ninja's... by WWG

If you've ever tuned into Ninja's streams, you'll notice a few things. First of all, his foot is never off the gas literally and metaphorically speaking. If Ninja isn't playing at a fast pace, bloodthirsty for kills, you're probably on the wrong stream. Secondly, he's good. He's real good. There's an enemy way off in the distance? That's a two tap. There's somebody on a roof? That's a two tap. You're trying to rush Ninja? That's a shotgun to the face, or chest, or really wherever. Moral of the story is that if you go face-to-face against Ninja, you're most likely going to lose.

Ninja is one of the most feared players in H1Z1: King of the Kill. He regularly has to deal with stream snipers because people want their claim to fame to be that they killed the best H1Z1 player in the game. While Ninja isn't a fan of stream snipers, he usually takes care of them en route to high kill, first place finishes.

At the H1Z1: Fight for the Crown tournament, his goal of being the best is no different and this all started when he really bunkered down during the season and decided to go for it. "This was the first season that I tried to actually go for kills and be number one in the leaderboard," said Ninja. "It didn't take me long to do it and nobody's been able to take it away from me yet."

Ninja's playstyle is off the charts, to say the least. He'll go for every single kill he sees while blaring the horn in his car or sounding the sirens. According to Ninja, that playstyle has to be changed when he's with his team, Luminosity. "I absolutely have to tone it back. I can't rush in at all. Really my entire playstyle that I have in terms of my aggression is pretty much gone."

"The switch from solo's to fives took me a couple days to just turn it off. To turn off just my W button." - Ninja

When it comes to others around the venue, Ninja has a ton of respect for them and didn't want to slander anybody's name. "I'm not gonna' say anything bad about anyone because that is as bad ju-ju as it can get," said Ninja. "I believe in Karma."

That, of course, wouldn't hold Ninja back from placing down a prediction for what he thinks will happen. "I think you can easily expect us to be in the Top 5."

Oh and if you've tuned into Ninja's streams before, you know he does the Pon Pon after his first victory of the day. When asked if he would bust out the dance, he said, "Hands down, I'll make the whole team do it."
