Spotlight with ValsaDoom

By LATINO - 5th November 2021 - 09:48 AM

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

I'm from Québec, the french part of Canada, and my name is nobody, why I give this answer? I was inspired by the 1973 movie of the same name, why was Iinspired by a movie? Because movies were part of my life, I had a first Video store in 1985 and in this store I had a VHS cartoon movie of 1978 Lord of the rings, and got interested on the subject from that moment.

After successfully operating few stores over few decades I shut down the last one in 2015, I must admit it was painful, and if you do the math, that makes me one of the oldest in this community.

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

Every weeks we received new games in store, and ofc I had easy access to all, so I tried most of em, from NES and ATARI in 1986 to PlayStation, XBOX and PCs in the late 90's and early 2000's, but my first experience online-game was BFME in 2006, I've tried no other.

3. GameReplays : Why did you join GR?

Cheat! After playing this game :

I wanted a place to warn the community about cheating, it turned out almost everybody already knew. After this moment I kept coming back to GameReplays.org in order to communicate, stay informed and to post some replays as well.

4. GameReplays : What is your favorite game?


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

After watching the 1978 cartoon of Lord of the rings, while I was playing all those different Nintendo's games, I mean I tried thousands of games over the years but when I found BFME, I stopped looking, I guess this was the game I was truly looking for.

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

Hard to say, I like to play Isengard, since I don't play much 2v2 I'd say my favorite MU is when my team in 3v3 or 4v4 don't have any Mordor but manage to defeat the opposite team witch has a Mordor.

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

I like all the 4v4 maps!

My favorite partner(s) is the one(s) I have, I don't mind if they complain or flame, sometimes swearing makes one feel better.

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

Make the lag and/or skip-frame and/or delay and/or bad unit control STOP! Maybe the game-speed is set to fast for its capacity, witch make it uneven, in any case I'm too slow, I have played so many years on game consoles in witch everybody use the same material, today's pc and internet are so disparate... other then that it could be fun to make it possible for more then 8 players to play on the same map in the same game. (how ironic right?)

9. 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?

I'd say, I'm still in my ''noob'' time.

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

If I may quote TH0RIN: "The stubbornness of some people, for example when they refuse to try new things and just stay on their gamemode, with the same map and the same tactics repeatedly, hating everything new that could require some adapting."

I agree completely and don't you find this kind of behavior typical for many 3rd age people? I'm closer to them then most of you and I'm trying as hard as possible not to be like that. Time pass by so fast, there is no hurry to get your mind and hearth old.

What I like the most is when a better player takes a noob under his wing and show him or her how to improve.

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

Yes I like 1.09, but I don't have enough free time to play it, not mentioning not many people play it, trust seems like a big issue here, maybe there is a way to make it safer or more trust-worthy so more people will join...

12. GameReplays : How has gaming affected your life?

Sometimes there are things you can't control, I could go read something, watch a movie, walk the dog and I can also play online, it keeps my mind off those things, then I can go back to what's mater.

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

Work, but here and there enjoy life with family and friends visit the world have a taste of different cultures and tries as much as possible to make other people's life better.

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

This question brings another in my mind, what if I am a clone of my future self, sent back into time and into this moment?

15. GameReplays : What is your dream in life?

Make the people life easier, and influence the people to do the same. It's cool if your the best at something, but imagine if your planet is the best in the entire universe....

Take care All!

GameReplays : Thanks!
