This interview is about No1LiveEr, one of the most active players on Phoenix, and a key HARDCORE warrior, you can find his name on Phoenix's website Rankings even after he did quit playing weeks ago. He is also a very respected player on server since you can find his name on last interviewed top players like Crucify or Chukundah. I was trying to obtain this interview since Phoenix mid life time and we finally synchronized, so, let's turn it up:
Reporter: "Hello, No1LiveEr ! Welcome to the News Paper's Hall of Fame !
No1LiveEr:"Hello to you, Reporter and community! "
Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? "
No1LiveEr:"My name is Roland, I'm 34 years old. I currently live in Germany, working in a logistics warehouse. Like hobbies: I like to travel, to play games on PC/PS4. I like contact sports like MMA / Box "
Reporter:" Are you going to play on this new Inception data base?"
No1LiveEr:"Naturally, I will play with great pleasure. I can't miss it. "
Reporter: "How much time do you plan to spend/day playing mu OldSquad (average)? "
No1LiveEr:"Somewhere between 6-7 hours a day "
Reporter : "When did you start to play Mu Online? "
No1LiveEr:"I started about 16-17 years ago "
Reporter : "How did you find OldSquad ?"
No1LiveEr:"From some friends, they invited me to play on OldSquad. "
Reporter :"What nicknames did you have in the past?""
No1LiveEr:"The first nickname, I think it was .... Massacr3 (if I remember correctly), then No1LiveEr, Ezal0r. "
Reporter: "Are you going buy VIP since day 1?"
No1LiveEr:"100%, normal "
Reporter: " Is it so important to have a VIP since day 1?"
No1LiveEr : "Yes, I think it's important"
Reporter:" Since you are going to buy VIP from day 1, are you going to hunt the top and aim to be a stage breaker?"
No1LiveEr:"Unfortunately, I never used to play for top, but I wasn't far from it either. As for the stage break, it is never known, there are always top, pro, active players who aim at that! "
Reporter: "Do you think that VIP affects the "play-to-win concept"? Is it possible to reach the top without donating? "
No1LiveEr:"It does not necessarily affect it, it depends on each player on how much time he can afford to play. Along the way you can probably slowly reach the top without donating, but in principle if you want to stay in the top you have to make small sacrifices, including donations. "
Reporter: " How did you manage to hunt so many goldens on Phoenix? Can you reveal us "the secret"? "
No1LiveEr:"A very good question :)) I always enjoy hunting goldens, it is my greatest pleasure related to MU.
The secret lies in: ON almost all invasions I have patience, sometimes I wait for the invasion for 30-40 minutes in the maps I hunt :)) I never miss invasions when I am online, no matter what event it is (except CS, ofc). "
Reporter :"What characters have you played on OldSquad so far?
No1LiveEr:" "Magic Gladiator (strMG) and MaSsacr3 (SM). "
Reporter :"What characters do you think that are the best for PvP ? What about PVM?"
No1LiveEr:"For me, there are only MG on PVP and on PVM, but I think every character is good in both PVP and PVM "
Reporter :"So, do you think that all classes are balanced?
No1LiveEr:" Not really, 70% I am satisfied with the settings and formulas of each character. But they can be even better."
Reporter :"What advice would you give to a player playing on this server for the first time, what should he do to get to the top places?"
No1LiveEr:"First of all, a new player must look for a top guild in which to integrate and adapt quickly to the style of play. The second very important thing would be a permanent party with which to reach the top. The rest comes during the game. The third very important thing is the forum. There is all the information related to the server, related to game play, events etc. etc. "
Reporter: "Did you have any permanent party on OldSquad ? Do you have one ready for this new data base? Can you tell us a short story about how did you meet those players and their names ofc.?"
No1LiveEr: "The first time I played I didn't have a permanent party, but I adapted to the style of play on the server... I have a permanent party for the new database. I would like not to reveal the players' names that I party with, now. We have been part of the same guild for some time and we get along very well."
Reporter:" What is the importance of a permanent party ?"
No1LiveEr: "It's the most important thing if you want to be in the top, once again it makes the difference between a good player and an average one, of course if you manage to find the right players to take part of it (it can be really tricky if you do not trust that players enough to share account and etc. but I would never join a permanent party without knowing very well the players inside it. "
Reporter: "There are rumors on the server that inside Rampage and Hardcore guilds there have been many quarrels between guild members, are they true? Why Rampage disbanded?"
No1LiveEr:"I can't answer you because I don't know what happened, at that time I didn't use to play that much "
Reporter : "Since we reached the rumors section, there are some that say that Obraznic was a friend of yours and one of your permanent party members. What happened with him, why did he get banned?"
No1LiveEr: "Yes, Obraznic is a friend of mine and he played with me. Why was he banned? As far as I know, he tried to sell for real money, what is against the rules on the server. "
Reporter: " Your guild lost most of the battles on the past Inception data base, but took revenge on Phoenix, what happened? How did you guys manage to build such a strong guild?"
No1LiveEr: "I think that on Inception we lost as a guild due to the fact that many players gave up one by one, including me. The difference was made on Phoenix for the simple fact that we managed to build a much more united guild than on the last Inception, and many of us had a lot of free time due to the pandemic. "
Reporter: " Will Hardcore return, or maybe should I say continue, since you, guys, dominated Phoenix, in force, are you ready to dominate this database same as happened on Phoenix ?"
No1LiveEr:" Hardcore will return without a doubt, but will we dominate this database as well? I can't know for sure what will happen, but what I can say is that we will not give up easily "
Reporter: " On last Inception data base, Snook and Alex were a part of your team, then on Phoenix they started with Hardcore, then they left the camp and went to Squadron, what happened?"
No1LiveEr:":)) In few words ... I don't think they are worthy of Hardcore"
Reporter: "mafy or RedBuLL .. will one of them be the guild master of Hardcore this data base? "
No1LiveEr:"Unfortunately, none of them. "
Reporter: "I think you already read all the features about this new Inception data base, what would you change to this new server? What do you expect from this new Inception data base?"
No1LiveEr: "Hmm a very difficult question ... I mostly like the idea itself and what has been implemented. What I would change would be the reward at each stage, I consider that they are too small. Regarding what expectations I have from the database .... I hope there will be more than 2-3 guilds participating in CS "
Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? "
No1LiveEr:" Of course, yes"
Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? "
No1LiveEr: "I'm not a superstitious guy. The castle is not cursed .... The castle will always belong to those who are very united and able to adapt and counteract as quickly as possible. "
Reporter : " Did you see what happened to the guilds that held the castle, even yours (Rampage)? If it's not "The Curse", what could it be to create so much chaos inside a guild and destroy the most of them?"
No1LiveEr:" I know very little about what happened in Rampage, but what I can say for sure is that not everyone can always be satisfied. And by chance itself we managed to create a new guild and at the same time to gather players who do not make waves and know very well their position in the guild and not only."
Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?"
No1LiveEr:"I don't think any change is needed. You, as a Reporter, do your job very well and I am always eager to see what other articles you do "
Reporter: "Since a mate of yours was banned, what do you think about this rule related to the sale of items / accounts for real money? "The buyer receives free of charge what the seller offers if he reports to Staff."
No1LiveEr: "I completely agree even if I was left without a friend (in game), but at the same time it is a rule that can be interpreted differently by everyone. Although the rule is big and loud, I am very sure that there are enough players on the server that manage to break the rule and to take advantage of it .... The temptation is great and there are many buyers :P "
Reporter: "I have 4 challenges for you, do you accept them?"
No1LiveEr:"Yes, I hope it doesn't take too long "
Reporter :"Challenge no 1: I need the names of the 5 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 5 you dislike the most on OldSquad, with reasons ofc."
No1LiveEr:":)) I like:
-Makiavelli because he is a close friend and a loyal player and at the same time a team player
-RuSuLeTzZz because he is a very ambitious player and does not give up no matter what happens and a good coordinator
-mafy because he is an insightful player and attentive to whatever happens
- Sparkle because he is a very good player from the old generation and at the same time a good CS player
-RedBuLL because he is by far one of the best players on the Old Squad
:)) I dislike:
-CaddyLLac, KAIDO, Gh0sT, gre4ka, LordCiprix because they are players I never want to play with "
Reporter: " Challenge no 2: Tell me what do you like most about our staff team, and what you don't like about them!"
No1LiveEr:"Hmmm very hard ..... because I respect the dedication of the staff only, but there is always things that they can do better "
Reporter: " Challenge no 3: Give us the names of the top 10 hardcore players that will join this new data base"
No1LiveEr:"mafy, RuSuLeTzZz, RedBuLL, LeonidaS, mircy, pandemic, PoooC, Azir, HellDrakE, and, ofc, me :D. "
Reporter:" Challenge no 4 : "Give us the name of the guild master of Hardcore?"
No1LiveEr: "No1LiveEr "
Reporter: "OMG, so, I just interviewed the guild master of HARDOCRE?"
No1LiveEr: "Yes "
Reporter: "WOW, this is what I call Breaking NEWS !! I wish you a lot of success in this new mission and may the curse you believe in, or not, stay away from your guild in this new database!"
Reporter:" Thank you very much for time and patience, I wish you to enjoy this new data base and have tons of fun playing it !"
No1LiveEr: "Thank you very much!"
This was No1LiveEr's Interview, a top player, a really honest guy and I am happy to bring him inside the NewsPaper hall of fame!
