GameReplays.Org returns with another edition of our Spotlight interview series with one of the veterans and an Expert of Battle For Middle Earth (BFME). Centauer's guest this time round is well known long-time player, Dunedain!

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

Dunedain: Hey, my name is Suleman, from India. I am 21, i studied in hospitality management. I love sports, i watch and play cricket a lot! also tennis/football in the season. I like cooking also, playing video games & watching animes

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

Dunedain: I played only few online games but played many offline games in ( psp, gba, pc, nds )
online games, i played age of mythology alot before bfme and other online games like CS 1.06, Call of duty, pokemon

GameReplays: Why did you join GR?

Dunedain: I like to interact with people, make friends, flames and other fun stuff, so thats why i joined GR (also for advice and watch/upload replays )

GameReplays: What is your favorite game?

Dunedain: BFME 1

GameReplays: What is your favorite game genre? Why?

Dunedain: RTS & RPG because I like to play with strategy & because i like to explore the in-game world and all the other stuff people do in RPG games.

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

Dunedain: I Played BFME in 2011 i think for the first time, played couple of months offline then i discoverd BFME is on gameranger so
a guy named ( Lionel Messi ) he was from Iran or Iraq, helped me get BFME's latest patch with teamviewer and ever since then i been playing BFME.

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

Dunedain: It has everything a strategy game should have, in short you need your mind as well as skills in this game and thats the reason i love this game so much.

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

Dunedain: In 1vs1, Gondor/Isengard. In 2vs2, Gondor & Isengard.

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

Dunedain: In 1vs1, 3vs3 & 4vs4 I like mostly every maps except Fangorn Forest and in 2vs2 Anorien & Wold. I have played with many many players & i liked playing with mostly all of them. Not sure about best team mate but currently players i love playing with is IlPrincipino because he will let you play your own game (wont complain) & at the same time will play as a team & also Oats/Felix & Mania.

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

Dunedain: We are (1.09 Community) already trying to improve the game, 1.09 is the biggest improvement this game ever had.

GameReplays: How did you improve like you did to be Expert - 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?

Dunedain: I think the thing that helped me the most to become expert is the mindset to 'never give up'. I never watch my own replays though i always ask others for advice even now from players like Orange (who knows this game very well) and always listen to any other plays who is willing to give you advice. Playing in tournaments, I played like many many tournaments before winning my 1st in 2017. So dont be afraid to participate in tournaments and play in high-skills league games because you learn from playing with pro-players a lot.

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?

Dunedain: I did enjoy my time playing as a noob player but now i can't imagine playing with noob/med players and having fun. If you're playing this game from many years and if you're still a noob then learn and get better otherwise stop playing this game, because the (experience of playing the) game is totally different on 'Good skill level' than a noob/med level.

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

Dunedain: Both

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

Dunedain: Depends on the situation

GameReplays: Army of the Dead or Balrog?

Dunedain: Balrog

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

Dunedain: I like that there are so many awesome people around that you can play with & be friends in real life. I met Omran in real life, i had alot of fun with him talking about BFME. What i dislike most about this community is that some people are not willing to try new things like maps or patch changes & they want to stick with same old shit and they dont wanna get better in terms of skills.

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

Dunedain: I play mostly BFME only but whenever i dont get high skill games in bfme, i play other offline or online games. i like playing those but mostly i get bored after few days or weeks so i never stick with same game except for Bfme.

GameReplays: Do you like 1.09 and do you play it a lot ?

Dunedain: Yup, alot better than 1.06 for me and i only play 1.09 now.

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

Dunedain: Currently, many hours because of coronavirus lockdown. On normal days sometimes in a week whenever i am free and feel like to play bfme.

GameReplays: How has gaming affected your life?

Dunedain: Negatively, but because i met these people who are friends with me now in real life and shared alot of fun memories with them while playing the game
i feel like it was worth it.

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

Dunedain: A lot, especially in BFME 1, you can change the game with good micro.

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

Dunedain: I study, help my family with Family Buisness or do my hobbies which i mentioned before.

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

Dunedain: I see myself living in yoshis room, using his computer, food and internet.

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

Dunedain: Never give up, play till the end even if it looks over and always try to win till the end. There are so many many times i have made a come back because of this mindset & always try to get better and be the best, you need that kind of attitude in even real life to succeed

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

Dunedain: I have made so many BFME friends in real life & I'm in contact with many of them, so i would love to meet them all
