  1. Dear NewsPaper readers , after "so much waiting(I hope you understand the allusion)", finally a FIRST Castle Siege was disputed between the greatest forces of the server, the only thing is that this was the SECOND actual Castle Siege, if you already read Episode 1 of this story you know that the first Battle for Supremacy (in my opinion one of the most beautiful possible when all the players are still in sets non-excelent and without top gear), well, this fight did not take place, I understand, because it had no stake, but again (sorry for my repetition ) but didn't it really have a real stake??? If you read this story to the end, you will probably understand the stakes of the other fight that did not take place. So this Castle Siege started without any defensive guild, (there is no point in trying to understand why, or even trying to explain because...) but that was the beginning of the episode 1, so in this first episode (secondary) these two guilds participated: Hardcore (guild that dominated Phoenix) and PURGE (a guild with deep roots that sprout from the legendary Guild Squadron) - the fight was balanced, from beginning to end, a fight as can rarely be seen on any MuOnline servers, those in Hardcore had the advantage of the top five players who dominate the server in the rankings from day one. We can also call them "the dominant party of this server start, because they chose/tested, and managed to find the perfect starting combination and lead the server start with ~2 resets ahead before this CS start", and those in PURGE who had the unity advantage. Those both guilds are build up by the strongest OldSquad players, they know each other inside those guilds because they used to play together for years ... So the fight was cruel, a great fight, a fight in which each warrior gave his best, or at least tried, from beginning to end the balance was tilted surprising to "some" towards PURGE, the PURGE CAVALRY did wonders same as the organization of this guild, which, although was previously dominated on all levels by those from Hardcore (rankings invasions, etc.). Despite that, they slightly dominate those in Hardcore, with better organization. At the crown, No1LiveEr failed to press the button due to congestion of enemies, at switches cavalry of PURGE MAKES MIRACLES !! We enter the last 10 minutes of this great battle and everything is at the limit, a little balanced in favor of the PURGE, it's the time when the Hardcore warriors begin to recover from dizziness, to regroup and start to attack Snook at the crown with all their top dmg dealers. Well.. Snook was knocked down by Endorphin's damage and Hardcore seems to won a lot of precious time, but Snook returns inside the castle, this strategy seems to make a difference, but he returns quickly and regains the crown. Hardcore comes back fast and recovers it, everything is dizzying, Purge returns, registers, but it's too late ... this battle ends and those in Hardcore celebrate a victory! What a VICTORY !! A victory at ONLY 510 points difference! This fight for supremacy seems to continue in favor of Hardcore, it's true, they have won due in large part to the 5 players who are in the top of the server, but also a victory that raises a big alarm for them, they need a little better team-play in the battles that follow if they want to keep the castle, on the other hand the PURGE did an extraordinary job, facing and even dominating Hardcore even with 2 resets less than the main Hardcore party, they did it more 'cause of the unity and better organization ! Now it is the time to go back to the beginning of this article, or rather to Episode 1, was this first fight really pointless? If, without being arrogant, the people from PURGE would've took the first castle "for free" the result now would have been the same? They would have had the advantage of the defenders... but what if Hardcore would've lost this fight? Would have they been so arrogant as to ignore the advantage they were offered for free as defenders? (of course, if they would have took the castle last week) Near the end of this article, I wonder what the other two top guilds would have lost? What would GameZONE and Diamond have lost if they participated? Were all these warriors too busy last Sunday? Or do you think that the fight for supremacy is not worth the effort ... not even as an exercise, or maybe even for these two promising guilds it is not worth the effort? Who knows? I am convinced that time will give us the answer to these questions. In the end I will congratulate the whole gang of the new leader of the server: No1LiveEr and I will also congratulate Snook's gang, you have made an unforgettable fight that will always remain written with the blood of all fighters inside NewsPaper.

    Not even to be the first guild to dominate this server start? To be the first to appear in the NewsPaper? Wll you tell me that HARDCORE and PURGE guilds already dominate the server? Or will you simply find another excuse for not even trying to fight these two forces?(even when they stand aside)
  3. Reporter

    I heard rumors that if one of the guilds registered the seal, the others would show up also, anyway we'll never find it out, right? And regarding your guild experience on battlefield, I can just hope to see a balanced fight between three guilds, you and your warriors will have the chance to show us what you can do in the coming weeks! I wish you good luck! @HvmanWhat was the reason that your guild didn't show up ?
  4. Dear newspaper readers, as I have accustomed you in past editions, the war for Inception Supremacy will continue to be written in The Newspaper. In most articles I wrote about the courage and strategies of these brave players who fight for pride, for the riches that only the guild that owns The Castle benefits from or simply out of revenge, well in this first edition "pride" did not matter to anyone because, although three guilds have signed up: HARDCORE (the guild that dominated Phoenix), PURGE (a guild created by former Squadron members) and Diamond (a new guild that is looking promising), no one showed up on the battlefield. There are many rumors around the server, some "voices" say that the top guilds have rebelled, thus protesting against Admin on this Castle Siege which "has no value", of course, the first questions that came through my mind were: "Really like that? It doesn't have ANY VALUE at all?" Let's just say it doesn't matter for Hardcore, some "bad mouths" say about them that they are too proud cause of their success on Phoenix and they think that nothing can bring them down even here on this new Inception because they have a strong core, other voices say that they do not want to lose the advance in top that they've got until now, again, my mind went CRAZY, REALLY ? 2 HOURS???? their main party has 1 full reset in front of PURGE's main party!!!!!!! What about the Purge Warriors? They lost, this start, a bit ground vs Hardcore but they seem strong enough to cause serious bleeding wounds to those in Hardcore , well they didn't show up and the "bad mouths" say that they are too proud due to the success of the last Inception, also they say that even if they would show up they would have being wiped out by those from Hardcore (we will never find that out now, will we?). There are experienced fighters in these two guilds, fighters who have held supremacy in the past, so let's say it seems understandable for them but what excuse would those from Diamond have had? A new guild, with active players, they didn't show up on the battlefield either. What is their explanation? Do they already have enough experience that they do not need organization and training? They don't want to start this new database at the helm of the server? All they had to do was show up in the last 40 minutes and register the seal ... Pride, fame and pvp fun seem to have been defeated by ambition and "hunger for exp" or maybe it was simply a coalition of the three guilds in which to protest, but if it was a real protest shouldn't the Protestants have shown up there? Or maybe they are afraid of The Curse... who knows those days everything can happen. I say "those days" because in past a fight for Castle would not be ignored that easy even if there was no reward at all! I also received malicious private messages that said that now I have nothing to write about ... well, look, I can write articles about NOTHING! I don't like it but the articles are not written by me but by the actions of the top players! In conclusion, I would like to remind these warriors that most of them are old players who once enjoyed a simple victory and the fun was enough then! I hope that you ended up well in the fight against Gollock !
  5. Reporter

    There are a lot of events that I didn't mentioned, because all these details can be found in the 18 chapters written in the News Paper section ! I hope that all players who did not participate in Castle Siege and who did not read the articles will take some time to check them and see how important the fight for supremacy is on our server and to live a little the most important moments of the top players and guilds during the life of an OldSquad server.
  6. Reporter

    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!
  7. I look dizzy at the calendar and realize in my amazement that a year has already passed since the beginning of the last edition of the phenomenal server "Inception: Back To Origins ". It was a project with great achievements for our players but also for the staff, it was a server that made many players loyal to our community and made them realize that the servers created by Admin and Gion are, in terms of quality, much better than the others that can be found on muonline top websites. There is much to tell about this past server, a server in which the fight for supremacy was dominated by Squadron, one of the oldest guilds who won the first three Castle Sieges without any enemy to offer significant resistance , Squadron is a guild that is legendary on OldSquad (here you can find a short history about this guild -> https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3732-the-history-of-squadron/ ). Also, in this debut, some of the Squadron warriors left the guild after internal quarrels and started building a new guild (Rampage): they gather players from the server and manage to win 3 battles in a row, but, surprising us all, then fell prey to the terrifying Curse that has haunted the Castle for decades and never seems to rest. After these three great victories, they were defeated countless times on Inception by Squadron (a more unite and experienced guild), and the brave warriors had to dissolve this guild and rebuild it under a new name -> HARDCORE. They showed us all on Phoenix # 2 that they can measure up to any guild by taking revenge defeating Squadron countless times (some say they were so strong on Phoenix that they forced Squadron to give up the game early enough). Two other guilds shone on the last Inception, ATTACK and PlayBoys, these guilds joined forces to dominate the server end successfully succeeding. These were the guilds that came out in the spotlight on the last Inception, a data base in which we had drama, victory, disappointment, betrayal/dirty moves, rebirth and ambition, you can read the whole story in NewsPaper by accessing the following link (please read the chapters in order) : https://oldsquad.ro/forum/forum/176-oldsquad-newspaper/page/2/ Another "recent" piece of history: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3344-hof-edition-13-september-2019-25-may-2020/ You can see there the whole Hall of Fame. This has been the history, but now, looking at the present with my thoughts on the future, I hope to see past great guilds fighting for supremacy, (some voices say that Squadron and Hardcore are already forming their parties and working on their starting strategies, testing everything that can be tested and preparing a stormy start) and I still hope to see at least one more guild that can compete with these two forces! I hope to have a fair and balanced Castle Siege, a fight for supremacy like never seen before !! That being said, your Reporter wishes you thons of success and may The Curse stay away from your path in this new Inception rebirth! PS : If you don't know yet, whether you are a top hinting player or just a casual player, take your time and read all the information that will help you understand how this server works at the next link: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/forum/89-info-rules/
  8. Reporter

    This interview is about Snook, a player who got ranked no 1 on Phoenix#2 weeks ago and he is still number one in the moment I write this article, he is ranked top number one also on Master Level Main rankings, Hall of Fame general rankings, Chaos Castle general rankings, and second ranked Castle Siege Tank rankings , and he is also a member of "The Council" (one of the newest Old Squad projects). Reporter: "Hello, Snook ! Welllcomeeeee to the News Paper's Hall of Fammeeeeeeeee ! Snook:"Hello, Mr. Reporter ! Thank you for having me ! 🙏 " Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? " Snook:"My name is Florin. I am 25 years old, from Romania. I am self-employed , with 3 different income sources at the moment. My main hobbies would be sports ( with fitness and football being by far my favorite , but I also enjoy table tennis and basketball), movies , tv-shows, cars and reading and learning constantly new things " Reporter:" Three different income sources? Wow tell us a bit more about that." Snook:" Well, it's nothing special. They are all related to health. Two are strongly correlated, I am a personal trainer and a health and nutrition coach and I am also involved in my mother's business ( a medicinal leeches bio laboratory) which has been my main activity for the past months due to the covid19 situation." Reporter:" Regarding this covid 19 pandemic, how did it affect you?" Snook:" My major problem with covid19 was that they closed the gyms and they also blocked international transportation by air, which affected our sales. I also feel the need to say that this is far from a pandemic with this new virus " Reporter: "How much time do you spend/day playing mu OldSquad (average)? " Snook:" It really depends. For the past two weeks, I've spent about 2-3 hours, maybe. Today under 1 hour, so far 😂 . At the start of the server, I was on maybe 10-14 hours since my activities were closed/at a minimum level. " Reporter : "When did you start to play Mu Online? " Snook:"I first started when I was 11-12 maybe with my older brother. It was a 97d server and we had no idea what we were doing After that we played on and off, mostly together. There was a break of 5-6 years maybe where we didn't play any server, suddenly realizing how many things appeared and how much the game has evolved. This is probably the longest DB that I've played continuously. " Reporter : "How did you find OldSquad ?" Snook:" My brother found it on xtremetop100 when there was a 50rr edition. 2 years ago maybe. We loved it from the start, as we could see how much passion ADMIN put into making this server probably the best private one at this moment. I mean , not only ADMIN , the entire OS team." Reporter :"What nicknames did you have in the past?"" Snook:" I think I had Florin the first time and then Snook. In the first servers I had Sn0ok3r , the nickname I was using on CS 1.6" Reporter: "Do you have any VIP activated? What types of VIP did you use since the start of Phoenix and why?" Snook:"I have PRO vip for the past 4-6 weeks, I think. I've started with HUNTER, had VIP activated all the time. Started with HUNTER because it was better than DEALER for leveling up. " Reporter: " How did you manage to climb in top and eventually get the most desired place ? Can you reveal us "the secret"? " Snook:"If you wanna play for the top you MUST have a permanent party and try to have someone to cover the party all the time (being able to refill at nights and lvling up at top spots makes all the difference). We've tested on test-server the best spots for every level and we managed to get a nice lead versus the others. I've managed to get 1st now just because Rusuletz and Makiavelli stopped playing ( so seriously ). They've had pro vip since the release and therefore they had a big advantage at leveling. " Reporter:" But still, you were chasing the no 1 rank since server started and it came a bit late, what made the difference between you and the "stage breakers" back then?" Snook:" There were a couple of reasons. First one, the release of Grizzly spots in Elbeland right before the start of the server (which are better than ice queen in dev4). We didn't pay attention to that reply on the forum and didn't know about this. Secondly, the warp bug for dungeon 3 ( where you could walk to dungeon 3 at 53 or sth instead of 70). After that, the party kill rate made another difference (they had 2 dl's in party with OP dmg while SM was hitting 3-400 in karutan1). Another big difference was made by our party member Alex, which told mafy to move to our maps every time we were making xp better than them " Reporter :" What about HoF rankings, how did you got so many trophies? " Snook:" CC is playing a huge role in that. I've been getting first there for the past 5-6 weeks I think. Of course, PRO vip plays an important part in this, since you have an extra entry/day." Reporter :"Since you are top no one Soul Master player on the server, can you reveal us a few tips about Soul Master pvp build/ ML skill tree? Can you reveal your stats ?" Snook:"Well, I don't want to reveal them , since this makes quite a difference. I've tested several builds with each RR and now I think I've found the best one so far. It also depends on play-style/set. As with ML , on SM it's pretty basic , nothing special. " 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? How should he build stats on Soul Master ?" Snook:"Sneaky question . He should try to get into all bc/ds / day. They matter a lot actually. In my opinion, at the start he could try and have higher vitality/agility to survive in better maps. After he gets a decent gear, he can decrease those and add to energy. SM is very gear dependent, without a nice staff and wings, his dmg is very poor. And, of course, try and get a permanent party with shared teamviewer/anydesk." Reporter :"What characters do you think are the best for PvP ? Snook:"It depends on the stage of the game. At this moment, close to end game , I believe SM/SUM to be the best. BK is probably the best PVP as long as he one shots sm/sum with combo , if he doesn't then he'd die from the DPS. " Reporter: "Speaking of permanent party... Can you tell us a few words about the importance of a perma party on OldSquad, and a short story about how you and your perma mates got together?" Snook:"Permanent party , with shared TV/anydesk is the most important aspect on the server. Being able to refill the chars when the user is AFK or bring back from safe-zone if he dies will make all the difference in experience. Without one you might die in the first 2 minutes after you go AFK and realize that you've wasted 5-6 hours. Every minute is important for experience, especially at the start. Often you notice multiple differences in levels in a party between members that go to events (ex. invasions) and the ones that just afk on spot. We've actually replaced our perma a lot this DB. Started with Venom (who is a real-life good friend of mine) and Alex (we met on forum for Inception last db and we became friends, what were the odds that we were living so close to each other? ). Searching for 2 more players for our perma we found Mindpower and Rain, but their objective with the game was different than ours, they wanted a more chill approach so after a few weeks we changed members and kept changing since 1 member after another stopped playing. Right now the party consists of me , Venom , Waste and Duke. " Reporter: " Why Squadron disbanded? " Snook:"Most of the players stopped playing after the first 2-4 weeks , so there was no point in keeping the guild anymore. At a moment only Zutto, Waste and Chukundah were still playing, while all the others were afk , busy with work or other stuff. " Reporter : "What happened with BedeJutro's items during the most controversial Castle Siege on Phoenix#2 ?" Snook:" Well, obviously, someone with access on the account logged on him and took his items during CS time. It was pretty nice for him to give them back though." Reporter:" So, it wasn't you?" Snook:" Pretty hard to be me when I was facing 20-25 players trying to kill me on stamp during that time. I know I'm tough, but I still have to press Q Also, I never had the details to that account as I had no business with that party members." Reporter:" Last week Hardcore created 3 guilds to kick Sapphire from Castle Siege and then they farmed points to get free Lord Boxes, how do you comment their action? " Snook:"I don't really care. For me the competition on the server is dead for several weeks now. Maybe now that random guild may realize how inexperienced they really are. " Reporter: " Do you think that your guild can win the Castle Siege? " Snook:"In a close number of members fight , yeah. If there is a guild with double the number of players , probably not. Anyway , we are pretty busy and had no time for CS. " Reporter:" At the beginning of this data base you were a Hardcore member, what happened? Why did you left the guild and then moved to the "enemy guild" ?" Snook:" Most of the players did not want me there , they made it pretty clear , so there was no point for me to stay. I also did not want to play with them, but I entered because of Alex and Rus." Reporter:"Since you are a council member, can you give us some details about what this council means, why you applied, how you were elected and what your expectations are from this council? " Snook:"It's everything at the start, so I know as much as it was presented to everyone. I was invited by Gion to take part in this project , which I'm honored and happy to. I hope that together we can make OS projects more fun, balanced and enjoyable for all types of players , from serious to casual. " Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? " Snook:"ALWAYS!! " Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? " Snook:"Somehow , maybe. I think it brings a lot of greed at surface, but it all depends on the people that make the guild. We never had issues in Squadron with this because everyone has equal chances for the items " Reporter : " Did you see what happened to the guilds that held the castle? If it is not the "curse" (which can be defined by greed, selfishness and pride), what could it be to destroy the most of the guilds in that way?" Snook:" In my most sincere opinion , the core members of the guild. If they see themselves above the rest of the players , as the only party/players that matter , then of course the others will not accept this." Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?" Snook:"Well, I truly enjoy it, but maybe sometimes it can be made more fact-based, rather than dramatize. But maybe it's just my preference." Reporter: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you like Phoenix#2 ?" Snook:"I'd go with a 7." Reporter: " What would you change to this server? What do you expect from the following servers?" Snook:"I would want to see a slower pace for the server and fewer bugs/ more balance for top events. Compared to my experience on Inception, it feels that ADMIN didn't have that much time for this edition, which is understandable, many things may appear in someone's daily life. " Reporter: "There are rumors that the last base date you were banned,are they true? What happened? Snook:"Yes , although I'm not sure why it's a rumor , since it was never a secret. I tried to sell my account. Wanted to quit forever, heard from someone that he did , so I figured why not make some money if I invested so much time in the end. Wasn't aware at that time of the rule. " Reporter: "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 Admin."" ? Snook:"I believe many ABUSE this rule, forcing this kind of trades. I presented my opinion to ADMIN at that time also. People should be encourage to report this for the community , and just get them banned, but not get the items or especially the account. Maybe a small reward like toca,ob,creds." Reporter: "There are some rumors on the server that say VIP affects the concept of "play-to-win gameplay", what do you think of these rumors? Is a player who is active able reach the top without donating? " Snook:" Definitely , maybe they'd have to donate the first 2 weeks , or at least the first one. You can make a lot of credits by selling items/jwls. I made around 25-30K this edition so far I think. The game would be harder and more enjoyable without blacksmith upgrades (+12/ add luck) and therefore the credit trades will be lower , jwls will be more important and less scams, but this server is not for free , so I understand it perfectly that it needs to generate revenue for it to self sustain.Although probably PRO vip is a little OP" Reporter:"I have 4 challenges for you, do you accept them? Now it's a fixed number 😂" Snook:" Bring it on " Reporter :"Challenge no 1: I need the names of the 3 players you respect the most from Sapphire, the names of the 3 players you hate from this guild, the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad" Snook:" I respect no one from Sapphire , I've barely saw a couple of them on server, I don't hate anyone either. Hating someone over a game seems really problematic for me. I'm really indifferent with all of them. The 3 players I respect the most on OS, that's hard. I'd have to go with Voyager (very nice guy with great leadership skills), Exilia ( always minded his business and never trash talked, also had the pleasure to play in party with him for a couple of weeks and had some really, really interesting talks with him) and Diablo ( he truly understands the concept of fair play and game competition). Reporter: " Challenge no 2: Tell me 3 things you like most about our staff team, and 3 things you don't like about them!" Snook:" Well , let's see. I like how they try and come up with different events ideas , such as soccer , or OSGM. I like how seriously they take into consideration racism speech ( I believe this to be one of the problems that shouldn't exist in our time) I also like how they leave a freedom to free speach and room for fights on the server , adds some spice to the game sometimes I think they should take into consideration better actions against repetitive toxic players. I don't like how uncarelessly Admin sometimes responds to forum posts.." Reporter:" Challenge no 3: Tell us 3 things you would improve on our server and top 3 things you like the most" Snook :" Things I would improve: 1. Better balance for top events, especially IT. 2. Slower pace of game-play 3. Lower rewards from stages. " "Three things I like the most: 1. Stages 2. CS game-play 3.The server configuration and how the information is presented" Reporter: " Challenge no 4 : Tell us the council members names and your opinion about each one" Snook:" Council members at this moment are: ADMIN, Alex, Archie, Cerberus, Legion, mafy, Nephilim, snake, snook, Waste, Zutto. Admin- don't know him that well , seems like a decent guy that puts passion into this server Alex - friend of mine , biggest noob , hard to carry him for the second time, lucky for me I'm quite strong ( lots of love Alex) ; he sometimes comes up with awesome ideas for this server (ex: pvpquest) Archie - I don't know him at all Cerberus - played with him a little on Inception , seemed like a serious guy Legion - haven't seen him once so far mafy - he cares only about his own interest Nephilim - pretty decent , funny guy snake - I don't know him Snook - hopefully you'll make an idea from this interview Waste - pretty smart and funny guy , it's a pleasure to play with him Zutto - he seems to mind his own business" Reporter:" Do you strongly believe that this group of players will bring servers that will be appreciated by all players who will join?" Snook :" I truly believe each and everyone has their strengths and weakness and together I think we will complete each other and we will manage to improve the server's quality, even if it's only with a little." Reporter:" Thank you very much for time and patience, I wish you GL on all plans!" Snook:" Thank you very much also , it was a pleasure " This was Snook's Interview, a top player, council member and "behind the keyboard" seems to be a honest guy who enjoys to be a part of our community !

  10. A controversial episode with spectacular upheavals took place last Sunday in the battle for Phoenix's Supremacy. OneSteppy, guild that held the supremacy of the server for its first time, a guild that seems to be growing and that is focusing on recruiting all active players, (they manage to recruit people even from Hardcore last week), prepare the defense, managing to gather a large number of players, organizing about 4 parties. Some "voices" told me that they were 21 players but 3 of them were afk, most of the time. On the other side, Hardcore, the guild that dominated this data base winning most of the battles for Supremacy, starts as attackers. Fewer and weaker than ever, they barely managed to gather only 10 or 11 warriors, ("voices" told me that at the start of the battle. They were only 9 at that moment) and give the impression of throwing themselves blindly in a battle without odds for win. The fight begins, Hardcore "unleashed" the attack, a pale attack, an attack in which they are massacred inside the castle, but they do not seem affected at all and continue, they manage to register several times and make some points.. The only warrior who seem to shine, from Hardcore, is "The magnificent" Crucify who knocks down everyone in his path including BedeJutro who was slayed 2-3 times by him. But everything seems lost for Hardcore, mafy dies continuously every time he gets near the crown and tries to register, we approach the last half hour and the ones from OneSteppy are almost preparing to celebrate a new victory. Tokyo "The Slayer", Voymax "The Brave" and "The Lethal" Incubus were the protagonists of this massacre, making rivers of blood flow in the throne room , and it seems like the easiest victory is already there for them because everything seems to be played, they lead with a huge difference points, at 18:22 the score was 10594 vs 3484 in their favor. Hardcore manage to record and this is the moment when the people from RISE decide to take part in the battle, and, man.. they did it, but they didn't attack to win points or to try to conquer the throne. Driven by anger and hatred they take part in this fight just to hit the OneSteppy guild, so they join on Hardcore side and starts helping them by preventing OneSteppy from registering. We enter the last half of hour and OneSteppy starts to lose precious points, they try to stay in the lead of the fight by making multiple kills and trying to move RISE warriors from switches, but they fall in to the dark and after they were on the wave believing that nothing can stop them from keeping the castle for another week, they start to feel helpless, because the victory starts to be threatened.. The time passes, they struggle, they try but they seem lost, confused, watching, as the time goes by, how the huge difference of points they had is getting smaller and smaller, the crown on BedeJutro's head starts to shake. Time flies and eventually Hardcore wins an unexpected battle with the help that some of the guild members did not want, because in past they lost the castle weeks in a row in exactly the same way, even if they dominated the fights back then, they were defeated by dirty anti-games and unfair-play strategies, they won this fight and put the crown back on mafy's head but this time the crown looks stained with dirty blood, an unexpected victory won without being fully deserved. This week I asked here and there about what happened. What made these warriors, who in the past fought on the same side, in the same guild, hate each other so much now? The first answers came from Snook and I will write down a part of the small discussion with him bellow : Reporter: " Hello! What really happened between you, guys, and OneSteppy? How did you end up here as "the worst enemies" ?" Snook : "Hello! Well, I like to think that we are the "worst enemies" because we are really good at what we're doing , especially when someone's pissing us off. What happened is that we didn't want to play with guys that think they are good when the competition is done. Stepy is a guild wihthout any principles or character." Reporter: "Are they worst than Hardcore?" Snook : "Well, you can’t really compare a guild with history on the server with a mixture of random players, even though so many from HC stopped playing, also I'm pretty sure some were happy that I did , while others probably hated it completely. We didn't do it for them " I went forward with investigation and asked ncux from OneSteppy about their point of view : ncux :" Snook was in our guild with Venom, and he was afk all the time, focusing only for lvling up, we were always asking for his help during the fights for bosses like Selupan or Medusa and he never came, Tokyo and others started a conversation about why we need those kind of players in guild, who just ask for items but never helps, so Snook left and he asked all ppl who wants to join his new guild so Waste, DarknesSBK and FKinGCunT left following him, mostly because now they are fully geared and they do not want to help low lvl guys from our guild. They are led by the principle " when you are strong you want to be in a top guild but you don't care about the newbie members" " At the beginning of this week, another important moment was the start of a war between OneSteppy and Hardcore, a war that seems to never end and that makes the safe zones from Vulcanus or Swamp to become more populated than ever, a war that hold the time in one place for these guilds because they hunt each other day and night, and if some of the players try to take refuge, going afk through safe locations they are chased by enemies and if they can't be killed, secondary characters are left on them to slow their exp down. As I write this article I see some guilds that have already registered Sign of lord, is it an attempt of Hardcore or Rise to prevent OneSteppy from taking part in the fight on Sunday? Will OneSteppy have the strength to return to the battle? Will they accumulate enough points to be able to participate?(it is already Friday and they can register only tomorrow but they cannot add Signs of Lord anymore)
