Meet the team

Malte Schüneman

How long have you played Farming Simulator?

I’ve played Farming Simulator since the first one LS08, with all DLC since then.

On what teams have you played Farming Simulator before?

Last season I played for Team Horsch with my "new" old teammates MrMarcel5 & Hightower (previously known as Deutzfreakwsm).

How do you feel about the team and what are your team goals for the season?

I have high expectations about the new team and I think we are a nice mix of different ages and characters. Goals for the season? As many wins as possible ;)

Which teams do you think will be strongest in the upcoming season?

Phew, good question here :D Aside from us, there will be some strong teams. I think at least the stronger ones from the past season (Krone, John Deere for example) but a few newcomers as well (New Team Trelleborg, Hörmann).

What do you think will be the biggest changes in the game for the new season and how do you think they will affect the game?

Well biggest changes are the character of the map and the new pick and ban phase. Effects can possibly be luck (strong drops) and other changes like the new bale points for 10/15/20/25 bales in a row without a counter from the opponent team.

How long have you played Farming Simulator?

Since 2017

On what teams have you played Farming Simulator before?

I’ve played for Grimme before.

How do you feel about the team and what are your team goals for the season?

Our goals are to win as many tournaments as possible and the last tournament at Agritechnica!

Which teams do you think will be strongest in the upcoming season?

I think Trelleborg will be very strong, and also the Czech Team – and of course Valtra.

What do you think will be the biggest changes in the game for the new season and how do you think they will affect the game?

Now it won’t be possible to plan one tactic, so the games will be different. It’s also a little bit down to luck which drop you happen to get, but now the client is not fully developed and there can be some changes in gameplay.

Thomas Gottbehöde

What is your name and nickname?

My Name is Thomas Gottbehöde and my nickname is Scotty. In my work they all call me Scotty.

Where are you from?

I come from Germany from a small town called Damme. The potato harvesters from Grimme are also produced in Damme. I also work in this company.

How old are you?

42

How long have you played Farming Simulator?

I’ve played Farming Simulator since 2011.

On what teams have you played Farming Simulator before?

I played for Team Grimme in the previous season, where we became “vice world champions”.

How do you feel about the team and what are your team goals for the season?

I think the team is very motivated and we should be among the top teams. We all have a lot of experience in the game and we’re dedicated. I’m very confident.

Which teams do you think will be strongest in the upcoming season?

At the moment it is difficult to judge, because the current training mode is still a beta. Furthermore we haven’t seen any games of the other teams yet. But I think that the following teams will play in the front: the old team from Trelleborg, the new team from Trelleborg, Krone and John Deere. But first of all they have to get past us... ;-)

What do you think will be the biggest changes in the game for the new season and how do you think they will affect the game?

Like I said, the current game mode is still a beta. So it’s hard to say what else is coming. There are already some new things to come, like more drone drops, pick and ban phase and so on. We expect to be surprised!

Vincent Laatz

What is your name and nickname?

Hightower

Where are you from?

I’m from Berne, Germany.

How old are you?

23

How long have you played Farming Simulator?

I’ve been playing for 10 years.

On what teams have you played Farming Simulator before?

I played on the ChaosCrew Team 2 by VertexDezign during Farming Simulator Championship 2018 (2nd place HORSCH Farmcon, 1st place Herofest Bern)

I also played for Horsch, during Farming Simulator League 2019/2020.

How do you feel about the team and what are your team goals for the season?

We’re a great combination of ambition, ability, friendship and success. It’s too early to estimate with the new competition mode how strong we will be. My goal is to be a worthy opponent for every team and to bring home medals and more prizes.

Which teams do you think will be strongest in the upcoming season?

Difficult to answer. In the beginning, the teams with good tactics will win, later on those who perform these tactics best.

What do you think will be the biggest changes in the game for the new season and how do you think they will affect the game?

The new mode contains much more boosts and factors to turn the game completely on a short-term basis. It will take some time to balance the power-ups, otherwise the game will be decided too fast. The biggest change will be that the game will not be decided completely after the first 2 minutes like it was in the last season.

Marcel Renke

What is your name and nickname?

I’m known by the username MrMarcel5.

Officially I’m called Marcel Renke.

Where are you from?

I’m from Frankfurt, the technological centre of Europe.

How old are you?

Currently 21 years young.

How long have you been playing Farming Simulator?

Farming Simulator has been a big part of my life ever since the release of Farming Simulator 11.

On which teams have you played Farming Simulator before?

I played with the FSL Team “Horsch” in Season 2.

How do you feel about the team and what are your team goals for the season?

We’re a really diverse team in terms of individual characteristics. Everyone will be able to contribute towards achieving our goals for Season 3. Of course every team will try their best to win in Season 3, but I hope we can change the meta game & bring some unique techniques for the viewers.

Which teams do you think will be strongest in the upcoming season?

Pretty much all teams are either completely new or have a new mix of previous players. From what we can tell so far, it will be a lot harder for one team to completely dominate the others.

What do you think will be the biggest changes in the game for the new season and how do you think they will affect the game?

The new visuals & changed gameplay are the most obvious changes, but personally I believe the new pick & ban phase with the point system will be the biggest change. Teams will need to be flexible and come up with quick solutions, in case essential equipment picks are out of reach.

How do you feel about the team and what are your team goals for the season?

As a team, we are well-positioned and I hope that we will at minimum make 2nd place in the final.

Which teams do you think will be strongest in the upcoming season?

I think the new Trelleborg team will be strong, and the John Deere team as well.

What do you think will be the biggest changes in the game for the new season and how do you think they will affect the game?

The new map "Arena" is a challenge for all teams. We will see which team can handle it best.
