Spotlight with ZeD_K

By Earendil - 23rd December 2018 - 16:13 PM

Once again, 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 ZeD_K.

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

ZeD_K: Hello, my name is Issam. I'm 19 years old and I live in Algeria. Currently I'm studying Management and Economics at College.

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

ZeD_K: There isn't much to tell. I'm not a gamer actually, I started BFME in 2009-10 when I was young (at) about 10 years old. Unfortunately, I didn't know that there was online (mode) back then (as I) was too young to figure it out, so I was playing offline (Campaign, Boot games and sometimes LAN with my friends) till 2012-13.

GameReplays: Why did you join GR?

ZeD_K: Well I forget how or why tbh but I guess (it was) to be in touch with the others BFME players since the entire community was there.

GameReplays: What is your favorite game?


GameReplays: What is your favorite game genre? Why?

ZeD_K: Idk, Competitive games

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

ZeD_K: I was a big fan of the LOTR movies but I didn't know that were games for it. So one day, when I was 10 years old, I saw people playing it LAN on a cyber cafe so I got interested in it.

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

ZeD_K: Idk actually, I guess I like the game in general, and the main reason that kept me playing that long is I became addicted to it plus others reasons like the community here is great and I knew a lot good peoples and friends, and the entertainment and banter that's going on in the Mess Hall section leaded by Marje and Sam

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

ZeD_K: Rohan, and favourite matchup is Gon vs Mor

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

ZeD_K: Well when I (just) started, I had "OnePiece" as a 2v2 partner which he is called Boogyman. Currently my main partner is Bwel, we have an amazing (level of) synch. We don't even type a lot in gam, he just understands what I'm trying to do. This guy is really amazing and a good person, we won and lost so many together and he never (throws around) blame like most of the players.

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?

ZeD_K: Nothing changed I guess. I (am) still enjoying the game, just more pressure, I wasn't known as a good/pro player too long ago, pros used to kick me from their rooms which is understandable, so I didn't have the chance to improve really. Then I stopped trying to join them and switched to the FFA side which no one cares really if you are good (expect MARJE ). I then met LATINO, and this guy really helped me to become the player I am today. He pushed me to the next level and boosted my confidence by playing games with him as an Ally and gave tips to me.

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

ZeD_K: Since I like playing with FoL, I prefer playing against FoD.

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

ZeD_K: Wiping entire castle! Wiping out an entire castle with a Balrog

GameReplays: Army of the Dead or Balrog?


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

ZeD_K: Well as I said I'm not a gamer, the only games (I play) are BFME and PS4 games during my free time.

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

ZeD_K: Sometimes an entire day

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

ZeD_K: Too high, but sometimes you don't need to be one of the best micro players to be the best, look at Orange for example. No one considers him as one of the best micro players but he still (is one of) the best. He just knows exactly what to do and when.

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

ZeD_K: Idk, what other people do in everyday life

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

ZeD_K: Join Myth League if you wanna be pro

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

ZeD_K: Well, it definitely would be great if there was a meeting between some BFME players, Maybe a LAN tourneyn, it would be amazing

GameReplays: Who do you think is best BFME player right now?

ZeD_K: Omran

GameReplays: And who will be best BFME player?


GameReplays: QM , CW OR FFG?

ZeD_K: QM, i dont care about ranking tho but its fun and competitive

GameReplays: If you had a time machine, would you go back in time or visit the future?

ZeD_K: Yeah, Maybe i go back to the time when i tried to Blade rush dune in 2v2 tourney, I would wait for armor, Still upset about it

GameReplays: What is your dream in life?

ZeD_K: To be happy and successful

GameReplays: What has been the biggest challenge in your life so far?

ZeD_K:To not be lazy

GameReplays: What is your all-time favourite or current favourite songs?

ZeD_K: Rap songs, specifically Eminem
