Red3's Next Expert

By Inspector RaGe - 11th October 2015 - 08:32 AM

Red3.org has a long list of experts who have been a part of the community, including -Netput, JoZhA, iaguz, -XeoNeQ- (Dynamic), vehman, Technique, Avilo, ShadowTerran_II, Crunk 8D, EyEamZero, Dwelf^ nukestrike, Malle, Zlex, Luigi, DasDuelon, sofronel, Maniek, FreeZZinG, BaPor, Mutou, Matiz, TerryBogard, Tingu, 4del, Kivi, Eminence, WalfTheWolf, JulzzZ, YuiYui, Dankal and most recently LiCtor. All of them have left their mark on Red3.org, Red Alert 3 history, and in some cases have made waves in other games. Today, we continue that long tradition that was started years ago and we shall advance yet another to the rank of expert.

Red3.org: Congratulations! How does it feel being an Expert?
Vindies: I must admit I have recognized myself as an expert for quite some time, but it is great to see the other experts also recognizing it. ;-)

Red3.org: You were nominated for Expert since the Lighthouse Interview almost a year ago. What do you think changed to warrant that?
Vindies: 1st place titles. Up to the Lighthouse I had only won FTW21 and the 3v3 5th Anniv. tourney. In 2015 I have so far won Dual Duel #1, Grinder League 1 and 2, FTW31, The CnC 20th Anniv. tourney (also known as FTW32) and FTW33. My AvE and AvS has been top notch for quite a long time. At the time of the Lighthouse one year ago, my AvA was my weakness. This is not the case anymore.

Red3.org: During the interview, you said to watch out for Dimon and Happy. Do you still feel the same and is there anyone you would add to the list?
Vindies: I do still believe Happy, Dimon and the expert 4del are the current best players beside me. Kiro had a short break but is now active again. The old top player, Proffloff, is yet again active. However, the newest and most surprising addition to the competitive scene is Andrey, who proved his skills in the last FTW by beating Happy in the semi final.

Red3.org: If you had to describe your play-style in one word, what would you say?
Vindies: Disguised.

Red3.org: As an Expert, what would you like to see done to not only keep RA3 alive, but to increase its popularity and competitive scene?
Vindies: I think the greatest way to promote the game and especially the competitive scene is through events. I really think Rage is doing an amazing job here by donating money and managing monthly tournaments – this is what encourages the best players to keep playing. I do think that one month is a lot of waiting for the next event, so I would love to see either one more tourney or another event. Recently, the “All Maps Challenge” has become extremely popular. Maybe we can arrange a monthly official tournament of ~8 players to play their games on days and times that suit themselves within that month? This would also encourage people from the “unfortunate” time zones to take part (Dimon etc.).


It is really sad to see Sybert step down as a commentator, but I sincerely hope that CrazyCharlie has the time and will to be our next official commentator. This would provide much more hype to the events.

Red3.org: Out of all the current inactive Experts, name the top three you would like to see make a comeback and why?
Vindies: #1: Dankal. His micro was incomparable. The most impressing player ever in my opinion. #2: Tingu. When I finally became a top player he became inactive. I never played a top level match against him. #3: Two months ago, I would have said Proffloff, but he just returned. I must choose QO or JuJu. QO because he never really showed his full potential in a match against me. JuJu because he became inactive just when I was about becoming a top tier player.

Red3.org: You have an opportunity to give your first piece of advice as an Expert. What will it be?
Vindies: #1: Play the players who are better that yourself. #2: Learn the viable BOs and counters. Be inspired by build orders and strategies from replays and pro streamers, but make them your own. #3: Scout and adapt! You will never become the best by playing in the shadows of others. (#4: Don’t play the same map (Infinity Isle) for 7 years *cough* MESSI *cough*).

Red3.org: Any final words for the community as a whole?
Vindies: I love our community. We are all friends who know each other. If it wasn’t for all the friendly banter I would have stopped playing years ago. Thanks to every single active player for keeping this game alive. Also thanks to the staff and the modders for their hard work on improving the gameplay experience. I hope new maps will bring a lot of interesting and different games in the future!

A big congratulations to Vindies in his latest accomplishment in joining a long list of recognised top level Red Alert 3 players!
