By FallenXE - 6th April 2018 - 04:04 AM

Today, GameReplays.Org brings to you another edition of our Spotlight interview series with the players of Battle For Middle Earth (BFME). Centauer's guest for today's segment is none other than USSR'NoLdoR!

1. GameReplays : Hello , thanks for doing this week's Spotlight. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hi. My name is Artyom and Iím a 22 years old Russian. I studied Radioengineering and currently working.

2. GameReplays : Tell us a bit about your online gaming history?

In 2011 I started playing World of Tanks. In 2012 I first downloaded BFME

3. GameReplays : Why did you join GR?

Because the entire bfme community was there

4. GameReplays : What is your favorite game?

The Witcher 3

5. GameReplays : What is your favorite game genre? Why?

I like different genres, it depends on the particular game

6. GameReplays : So, how did you first get started with BFME?

In 2006-2007 I went through the Campaign several times and for many years forgot about this game. However, in 2012 I decided to try to play online. It turned out that the official server did not work anymore, but it is possible to play through the gameranger

7. GameReplays : What do you like so much about BfME, that has kept you playing the game for years?

First of all, I like the gameplay. Moreover, the Lord of the Rings is one of my favorite books

8. GameReplays : What is your favorite army and Match-up?

I like all armies. However, i have favourite match-ups: Gon-Mor, Mor-Gon, Mor-Roh as Mor and Isen-Mor as Isen

9. GameReplays : What is your favorite map, and who is your best Team game partner?

Of course, I love Foi, Anorien and Belfalas. Although I also like Westfold, Wold, Druadan Forest and Enedwaith. I think my best game partner for 2v2 is Stony

10. GameReplays : What would you do to change or improve game?

The most useful thing is watching streams and replays of good players

11. GameReplays : During your time in the community and the game, did you played many games vs old players / pros . Tell us about that time who was the best in your opinion , which game were OP , or some of the nicknames of old players which you remember ?

I'm a relatively new player, so I did not play against very old pros such as Butta, Chyna, etc. So my idols for many years were Stiwie and Xeha. I considered Xehanort undefeatable during the clanwars of 2014

12. GameReplays : How did you improve like you did: Do you watch replays of your own games to see mistakes and avoid them the next time? What role does advice from other players play for you? Which competition improved your game the most: Quickmatch, Clanwars, Tournaments or For Fun Games?

I watched the replays, because when I started playing, nobody was streaming or recording video. For me, the best opportunity to improve the skills were the clanwars. There is nothing more useful than competing with the best of the best

13. GameReplays : How did it feel to play BfME when you had your "noob" time and what is the difference to your current status as a player?

Being a noob is pretty boring, because none of the strong players want to play with you. Now it's much more interesting to play than a few years ago. You can participate in clanwars and tournaments with the opportunity to became champion

14. GameReplays : CW history?

For the first time I participated in clanwars in the summer of 2014. I created my own clan for the 1-1 games and fought against very very strong players. I could win 1 game and lose 10. However it was very useful experience. After that clanwars died. I played it but it was few active players. May 2017 was rise of clan wars. Remember lots of good games

15. GameReplays : QM history?

I practically didnít play qm

16. GameReplays : Playing against a Forces of Darkness or Forces of Light opponent?

I like to play as Mordor against the Forces of Light

17. GameReplays : Killing a high ranked Gandalf the White, or wiping out an entire castle with a Balrog?

Wiping out an entire castle with a Balrog

18. GameReplays : Army of the Dead or Balrog?


19. GameReplays : What do you like (or dislike?) most about the BfME community?

There are many active players who creates tournaments, videos, articles etc. I like it

20. GameReplays : What games are you active on currently, and how do your experiences there compare to those from BFME?

At the moment I do not have time, but sometimes I go to play bfme

21. GameReplays : What are some characteristics that you think help make up a great RTS player?

The speed of the reaction, the knowledge of tactics and strategies, the ability to navigate the situation

22. GameReplays : How many hours a day do you spend playing games?

Earlier I could play in bfme about 6 hours in a row. Now I practically do not play

23. GameReplays : How has gaming affected your life?

Negative, because the game takes too much time

24. GameReplays : How high is the influence of micro skills to win a game in 1v1 and 2v2?

I think that for the victory is equally important macro, micro, knowledge of strategies, etc.

25. GameReplays : When you're not gaming or posting on gamereplays, what do you do in your everyday life?

I work, walk, do sports, read etc

26. GameReplays : Where do you see yourself in 5 Years from now?

Difficult question. I canít answer it

27. GameReplays : If you could give one tip of advice to others like you, what would it be?

Close your gate if you play against Mergin

28. GameReplays : If you want to meet a bfme player in real life who would be that player? why?

I would like to meet with many players from the Russian-speaking community.

29. GameReplays : Who do you think is best bfme player right now?

Dunedain is best in 1v1 becouse he won last international tourney. But Svago is very strong too

30. GameReplays : And who will be best bfme player?
