RedBull published an interview with JerAx ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The company released an additional interview with Jesse "JerAx" Vainikka after the video about the former OG player within Esports Unfold series. Two-time winner of The International Jesse talks about his life and his thoughts in an attempt to find himself and to release his personality to the fullest.


My daily life consists of friends, parents, my family, talking to them and having fun together, going out and sharing experiences. I remember vividly how my parents were very supportive. We had a very, I would say, standard life. I played soccer and I had a lot of nice friends around the neighborhood. We used to go to each other’s houses and play video games. As there was no internet, it was natural to just get around the same PC and play on the same keyboard.

JerAx told how he discovered a new mod for WarCraft 3 named DotA.


When I first played Dota I was 15. I had a friend in my school who had been playing Warcraft 3, almost semi-professional already back then. He introduced me. I didn’t like Warcraft 3 myself as much, but then I found a Dota map, which I kind of jumped into.

Jesse also told what's the OG secret of success.


When I joined OG, I understood right away what they’re looking for, and I 100 percent agreed with it. I think when people ask what OG stands for, it’s mostly not for the letters themselves, but for enabling people as what they are. That’s the essence of why OG have been working as a team, and why we are such friends with each other.
