LoL boss Eintracht Spandau gave a killer serious interview on Twitch

Twitch Streamer and YouTuber Maximilian “HandOfBlood” Knabe gave an unforgettable interview at SPOBIS. At Europe’s biggest sporting event, he introduced himself as “Mr. Knaby”, head of the LOL team Eintracht Spandau. So he played a role and was very serious about it. After 20 minutes it became too colorful for the moderator.

Eintracht Spandau is a phenomenon in League of Legends esports. With the famous influencer HandOfBlood as a driving force, the club was able to build a large fan base within a very short period of time.

The strategy behind it: Don’t just be a club, be an entertainment machine.

HandOfBlood loves to slip into crazy roles in his YouTube videos, wear identical costumes and sometimes push the pain threshold — himself when the costumes are too crazy and those of his viewers when he drinks cow’s milk as a cat.

The last pain threshold that has been crossed is Alex Schlueter, among other things, supervisor of the streaming service DAZN. It was HandOfBlood hubs.

However, the stream came in his uncomfortable role in “President Boy” – and it ran until the end. So Schluether leaves the stage with the words: “I’ll cut it off at this point.”

We show you how the interview went on MeinMMO.

The coordinator leaves the stage at the presidential interview

The session at the SPOPS trade fair dealt with the topic: “How to become one of the most famous and popular sports presidents in the country in a year”. Serious specialist topic with serious broker. However, the guest speaker had a different plan.

HandOfBlood insisted on appearing as Chief Kanabi. Streamer often takes the role when he appears in relation to his LoL team, Eintracht Spandau.

However, President Knabe…special. Parody. A serious, dead guy who takes things out of context and has strong opinions – all with a touch of humor.

Moderator Alex Schluetter seems to have expected a stimulating conversation on the subject. But things must be different.

There is currently no video-on-demand for the interview. Broadcast on Eintracht Spandau Twitch.

“Ole, if you see that”

It started out amazing. Chief Kannabi does not sit properly even when he shouts into the camera: “Oli, if you see that […] Don’t you think what? With your football club, you will soon be in the district league if it continues like this.” The reference to the ‘match against Osgburg’ indicates that he is talking to Uli Hoeness, the former president of FC Bayern Munich.

The broker is still fully engaged and is joking. Even when President Knabe said he and Hoenesse used to smuggle “Nürnberger” from the JVA, the supervisor laughed, “Let’s leave it at that.”

It goes with the rhythm. When asked what Eintracht Spandau actually is, Knabe replied with a monologue about the eSports spell. The focus of the word is on the letter “E”, which, of course, is pronounced in German.

Schluetter still wanted an answer to his question and said “somewhere I didn’t agree with him”. My “I thought so” snot came back from the boy.

Transfers, shirt sponsors, halftime song

After that, there are already some appropriate answers. But it’s not about unity, it’s about esports as a serious sport.

The president immediately introduced a new definition: the so-called A-Sport – an ancient sport or “a sport according to the old definition.” This means established sports such as football or basketball. As an esports club, you don’t want to be confused with esports clubs.

Schlwetter, still happy and smiling, asks the question: “What is Eintracht Spandau’s recipe for success?”. It still seems that the broker is already expecting serious answers. But not with President Knabe.

The big clubs in sports do that, right? I always say: Play your shoes, focus on what you can do – write it – the transitions, the shirt sponsors, the song half time. We in Eintracht have done nothing else for several decades. The great name, the great coat of arms, the national anthem, the tree is ready.

Now the moderator is showing the first signs that the interview is on his nerves. Because Alex Schlueter keeps trying to squeeze decent answers from parodies on the chair next to him. But a long pause before the next question speaks volumes.

Schluether is suspicious of Knabe’s comments and digs deeper – the recipe in question isn’t enough to lure esports fans to his side. In the question, broker Eintracht Spandau called “St. Pauli” for esports. President Knaby’s through ball:

Wow, I can’t hear that anymore. Some fools once told the press, now it will be “copied”. I don’t understand the comparison either – St. Pauli in Hamburg, Spandau in Spandau. […] And nobody wants fans like St. Pauli. They don’t even buy VIP tickets or anything. […] Probably, and that’s how I’ve always connected her – Olly, there he is again, he’s been helping them […] Saint Pauli Rescue Games […] Since then he is the absolute Christ. I am the Messiah of Eintrach Spandau. Next question!

“Uh… my imagination? We are not from the imagination.”

Now the question is slowly getting out of hand. Because the moderator Schleutter wants to talk to fictional President Knaby about fictional things about Eintracht Spandau. As well as about the invented role of President Knabe.

The interesting term “mathematical reference satire” is mentioned and Schluetter wants to know something about content production and storytelling about Eintracht Spandau.

Then the boy: “Ah.. Fictional? We are not Fictional. At most, the hopes of our competition’s title are Fictional.”

Schlueter digs deeper, reports the numbers made on YouTube and wants to know something about the secret to success. The boy said: You have the answer in front of you. This is mostly up to me. […] I don’t care about the numbers I wrote there. […] The main thing is that we are way ahead of our competitors, the Lapps from BIG.”

HandOfBlood’s LoL beats its opponent in the derby, but there was more at stake than just a win.

The exchange of blows lasts for a few minutes. At some point, comes the first “Mr. Boy, are you serious?” from the mediator. When the president, with a bit of a laugh, described FIFA as a “people’s democratic organization” and Franz was bound in an envelope, even broker Schlwetter began to think it was too much.

Then the mediator referred the matter to the sponsors, and President Knabe concluded that security was required. The excitement in sports does not arise because the winner is open. Take football as an example: nothing has changed for years and the same clubs continue to win.

By the way, we already have the Eintrach Spandau team on the MeinMMO podcast:

Eintracht Spandau explains why the LOL scene needs to change something so urgently

“Mr. Knabe, I will cut it off at this point.”

Schlueter makes one last attempt to get something serious out of the conversation. If fans want security, he asks if that’s the reason why only a third of Eintracht Spandau’s budget is devoted to developing the sport. boy on it:

[…] Because a third of our budget here is just for sports and such, so they don’t come to me like that. It’s our first season, we finished second and qualified for the European Cup. […} Ob da am Ende ein Hans-Wurst unterhalten wurde, ist doch mir scheißegal. […] You need the trophies in the treasury, otherwise the sponsors wouldn’t exist at all. With us it’s like this: National Youth Games for Seniors – we just set the fire behind, we broke the 3m mark and now my mom has got a nice orange slice. This is where we are now.

At this point, moderator Alex Schletter ends the interview very professionally and with just a slight shake of his head: “Mr. Knabe, I’ll finish it at this point.” A head boy shouts defiantly: “Get out of the field.”

Then Knapp finishes the board alone. He gives more insight into his final moments than the entire previous 15 minutes, showing that his entertainment product doesn’t stop at the end of a match, it really begins.

But then the turn began again and in the end President Knabe makes fun of his remarks again. What a performance.

But in the end, there was a reconciliation between the two. On Twitter, President Knaby and coordinator Schleutter appeared together in a photo:
