#1 Tell us a bit more about yourself and about your gaming history, which was your first mod for Q3A?

I’ve liked games since I was very young, I remember playing Scorched Earth, Prince of Persia and several other MS-DOS games. I also played a lot of Play Station games, since a cousin of mine owned one. After that I used to play AOE2 and Diablo II mainly, up to the beginning of 2007 when I started to play Q3. I firstly played on single player until I could win all the tiers in Nightmare (lol). After that I started to play online, and some of the first servers I connected to was an E+ server where there were some players playing 1on1 on a plus-like config. I was really impressed with the gamestyle, watching some experienced players like BioHazard, Term, O2JR and Plinks face each other. After that, I immediately downloaded the E+ mod and started playing on some noob servers until Nine showed me how to fast switch, and then started playing on Deex near the end of 2007.

#2 Tell us about your hobbies and what you do in your free time when you are not in ‘’Quake World’’.

I like to watch anime and movies. Also I used to play table tennis, basketball, chess, guitar, make origami and ride on bike a lot, but lately I’ve become quite sedentary and haven’t done any of that in like a year or maybe even more. Instead of that now I spend a lot of time reading about technology, programming, web development or miscellaneous stuff.

#3 When you joined to ‘’Developers Team’’ of E+? and also why you joined them? And what was your first feeling like Developer? Also…from were you having you coding skills?

I joined in about July of last year. The reason why I joined is only because I like the game a lot (when the number of players on American servers lowered I tried to play other FPSs like UrbanTerror and CoD4, but they all bored me pretty quickly), so when the edawn project became public for whatever reasons it became clear that most of the player base was unwilling to make the switch, so the future of the mod (not really the mod, I honestly didn’t care which mod as long as the gamestyle and playerbase could be preserved) was pretty uncertain.
So then my first feelings would be of uncertainty, because all I knew about C were the little practices I made on college. However, I’ve always liked to program, because that was the field I spent more time in my college years, and I already knew other programming languages in depth (my main field is web development), so I was confident I could do it, and I was right: after easy accepted me in, in the next couple of weeks I studied 2 books of C (or 3, can’t remember, the last one was “Expert C Programming”, a really great book), and after that I felt the E+ codebase a lot easier.

#4 What you think of about Karma instead of post count in forums?

Honestly, in forums I only care about the posts, all other fancy features (like avatar, signature, post count, reputation) are extras in my eyes. So, since I don’t care about them, I guess I have no problem with using one or the other or even none, but keep in mind that I can’t make those changes in this forum.

#5 "North American E+ is currently "dormantly sleeping" at best. What part or aspect or person or clan/team (or even time period in general) do you miss the most from those NA/DeeX's Freeze OrGy times"

Sadly I couldn’t play on DeeX on its best days, when I started to play seriously a lot of good players had already left. Anyway, I guess the time I miss would be when I joined my first clan, XSFG, and the leader, ShadowKnight. I used to train a lot of time with him, and thanks to that I improved my skills a lot. Anyway, he had to leave because of real life issues at the beginning of 2009.

#6 What you think, which is your favourite clan at the moment in Plus side? And in Rail side? Also which is your favour player in E+?

MR, followed by F2B. I like the offensive gamestyle of these clans, watching their wars is never boring, even against camping clans. In rail side I don’t know, since I don’t follow rail side that much. Favourite player would be Marcus, followed by Skull and Laktos.

#7 Also, we don’t see you very often playing…where you spend your time (when you are not coding) and which server?

Well, that is because of the time zone. Because of work I can’t play on European servers anymore, and at the time I can play the servers are empty, since American E+ is pretty much inactive. Also, to be honest, I’ve always preferred to play FFA or TDM, since I don’t like to be waiting in games. Because of that I guess, and also because I don’t enjoy playing with 200 ping very much, I’m in a kind of on a break, but if an American server would rise again I’m pretty sure I would be of the first ones playing there.

#8 Have you got any plans for future of E+? or did you think about any sponsors for E+ events?

No I haven’t, I limit to code. If I would have extra money I think I would serve as sponsor myself, but I don’t Tongue. Anyway, as Fala himself said, a sponsor would be a great deal for attracting more people into E+.
About the future of E+, well, honestly I haven’t thought about it. I would definitely like some optimizations, maybe a couple of more features or gametypes, maybe to open the source code, who knows.

#9 You think, the future is Quake Live?

Never played QL before, so I don’t know. If it’s the future, then honestly I would only care if somehow at least a plus style would be added to it, or even better if it could somehow accept mods (tho I’m not sure how would that work in the centralized design of QL). To be honest, the moment plus gamestyle dies I’ll also quit gaming (at least seriously).

#10 What mouse and pad do you use and why?

Logitech G9, about one year and a half ago. It seemed to have very good features on amazon, since gaming mice don’t come to this country. I liked the features and really felt the difference against normal mice, but honestly I never really got comfortable with the shape, so I can’t move the mouse as I would like to. Mouse pad is an SteelSeries 4D, bought because it was the cheapest one made of plastic I found on Amazon, in retrospective I think I should have given the QcK a try.

#11 Thank you, any last words or thanks to someone?

- Don’t waste time in stupid flames on this forum, better go play on servers.
- If you don’t like something, try to do something for your own instead of trolling and spamming.
- Thanks to ShadowKnight, WaspKiller and easy.



Thank You for reading.
