Reporter : "Hello, Chukundah ! Welcome to The News Paper Hall of Fame! "
Chukundah :" Hello ^^"
Reporter: " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, etc. "
Chukundah :"Yes , my name is Angelo, I'm 25, I was born in Spain and came to Portugal when I was 8 years old . Lived in Lisbon for some time, then moved to Almada. I work in a clothing shop but all this virus thing happening, atm is closed , and I have a small retail business for an extra income. As hobby, I usually work out everyday , play videos games , go out few times at night, I also try to read as many books I can, related to psychology and others that help me understand how human being acts, thinks etc. Every book that teach something about human behavior interests me "
Reporter: " When did you start playing Mu Online? What nicknames you had in past? "
Chukundah :"I don't know for sure but I first played a Portuguese server probably in 2005-2007 , then after many years, I wanted to play mu again and found out OldSquad in 2016. My nickname was only Chukundah , and 1 time only I used MONTANA, for the first time when I played OldSquad "
Reporter: "How did you find OldSquad? Can you tell us a short story about your first steps on our server? Have you came alone? What was your first permanent party, what was your first guild, etc ? "
Chukundah :"I found it through Xtremetop100 , I checked the forum of the server looking for infos and they were really good, so I decided to start playing here. I came alone, yes, on a Non rr edition where DEADCATS and GROM were more active, I joined DEADCATS in the almost ending stage of game, which they quit playing after 2 weeks, then I started again whit them in prototype main party as they needed one active player "
Reporter: "You are currently the No. 1 Summoner in the following major Old Squad ranks: Castle Siege pvp rankings, Hall of Fame rankings, Chaos Castle general rankings, and Mercenary Squad rankings, how did you accomplish this?
Chukundah :"I don't really care about any rankings, doesn't define how good you are in game , maybe the CS one but still anyone can get on top if you play only for kills instead focusing the objectives that makes the win more secure , other rankings is just from being active. "
Reporter :" Yea, but you are still the no. 1 on these rankings and I think people would like to know how they can get no 1 in any ranks"
Chukundah :"To get in reset/lvl ranking for sure you need a permanent party with VIP + sharing TV / acc info , doing every BC+DS per day, and moving to higher spots when possible ( also, sometimes is better a lower spot whit faster clear speed) , even if u have to KS or PK for them ^^. Any other ranking that involves PVP and rewards requires in a 100 % rate a decent set +11+dd , and if you "main" that class you already should know the build that you should have to survive/kill against every other class, in order to have chances against other players and come out with a victory. Mercenary ranking doesn't involve much effort since you get random players to kill and mostly afk , just do 1 quest and back 12h after for another quest, as I did"
Reporter: "What do you think about this server and community?"
Chukundah :"One of the best server out there, just need improvement on season, and maybe 1 more GM to help admin with inside game stuff , that ppl complain/report , about community is all good as well , for me the more toxic they are, the better. I have no fun in well behaved community ^^ , unfortunately Admin doesn't allow that "
Reporter: " Where does the name "Chukundah" come from?"
Chukundah:" From the actor Chuck Norris, haha , I just tried to invent something after "Chuck" so it wouldn't be the same name , so I came out with Chukundah."
Reporter: "Do you have any VIP activated? Do you have this VIP since you started Phoenix?"
Chukundah :"I did bought Pro VIP yesterday for the first time just to do more events , but since the beginning I had only Hunter VIP "
Reporter: " You are one of the most active players from our server, how much time do you spend /day playing Mu Online? "
Chukundah :" If the server is really competitive and guild / party active too , in 24h I prob' play 13h , but meanwhile I do other stuff out of pc. I just time the events in alarm to do them and have discord on mobile to have notifications if something comes up"
Reporter :"What advice would you give to a player who recently joined the server? What should he do to get to the top places or to get inside a top guild?"
Chukundah : "This game is really hard for people that join later , Mu is a game where you need to have ppl to play it as party , if you play alone you won't get anywhere until you find a stable party, people that are joining now they struggle a lot because they are alone , they get ks / pk by stronger players that most likely make them quit , unless you are willing to do everything to fight with tops, then be patient, level up as much alone as you can or with party, if you have one, until you get lvl for higher map and party someone. Meanwhile creating an alt to lvl with you, going to all possible bc + ds , doing every golden invasion no matter what goldens you kill , every gear you get will be good if it has good opts for small boost on pvm, doing all these there will be a point that you will find someone to play whit and decent geared , also joining any guild that has active players also helps a lot, but it takes a loooot of time and patience , which I believe most new players don't have "
Reporter: " Do you think that Old Squad has a really solid play to win concept?"
Chukundah :"Yes , you can take me as an example , I only donated once at the beginning ( 10€ for vip) and had VIP every week until now and all set+12, doing every invasion , all events for weekly credits reward, selling items + jewels , I've made more than 30k credits "
Reporter : "You are a player who always has something to say, always gets into conflicts, where does so much energy for flame come from?"
Chukundah :" This is a game where the competition and the "hate" should and must exist , without this every mu server dies, so I like to start dramas and "conflicts", as you said , to bring all these together and make ppl more active in game, to get to you in some type of way, by going in invasions to get items to get stronger for killing you , and if you get them there in invasion they fight vs you to get it , instead of being soft and ignore you cause you don't have any probs with him / them , joining other guild cause they hate you and other etc .. everything that involves pvp and everything else in game like them going to your spot and kill all your party at night, and pk them every 1 hour ... goes on ^^
And sometimes I just do that for fun when I'm bored ^^ I don't really take anything serious. "
Reporter:" Since I first saw you, few years ago, you were playing Summoner. Is this your favorite class? Have you tried to play any other class as main?"
Chukundah :" Yes, it is. I play summoner since I started in that Portuguese server, but I once played BK and RF here, to try out , on which I sucked hard so i just stood with Summoner"
Reporter :" Speaking of permanent party, do you have one? Can you tell us a few words about each member and a short story about how you guys met and got in a perma?"
Chukundah :"After DEADCATS stop played i joined Squadron discord to play in next non rr edition and my first permanent party was with Zutto, Voyager, Okla and Sync. On the next edition was Colision Psyke, Hase, Snajper aand this one was Hase, Colision, Waste, Kozy. They all good guys to play with, and experienced players . As for now, since Hase and Colision quit, I had party with MasterQue and Waste only , so we kinda jumping to other parties when they resetted and we lvling together, so as long it's stable exp and doing events, I don't mind "
Reporter:" Can you describe the most powerful permanent party you had on OldSquad?"
Chukundah :" I liked more the first party whit Okla, Zutto, Voyager, Sync, the daily chatting was nice ( without mentioning that I once entered Voyager TeamViewer and he had gayporn on .. everyone saw it cause I took SS so all know I'm not lying^^) , but too much afk, in that party I was taking 4 chars and me to every event ^^"
Reporter:" Why aren't you in that permanent party anymore?"
Chukundah :" They wanted to play together with other guys they played before, like Trippy and FkingCunt , so I didn't mind to make party with other ppl"
Reporter: " You said earlier that the permanent party is essential in this game, but there are also players who have worked wonders solo, Mamed or Mu3rTe(on its start on Inception), what do you think about this style of play?"
Chukundah :""I don't know too much about Mamed's style of leveling. About Mu3rTe I know: he creates a lot of chars to lvl with him , and once they gets same lvl or couple below him , he creates new ones to boost exp. It's a very good strategy to lvl up fast , but, also, you need to have a lot of patience to do this "
Reporter: "What happened on Inception, why did you left game so early?"
Chukundah :"I don't like a server with many resets , so I reached a point that I had everything on my summoner and got bored of resetting and lvling again."
Reporter: "What is your role in Squadron?"
Chukundah :"I don't have a specific role , I'm just a regular player here , sometimes I try to help in voice chat at CS , and in guild I also try to help whit stuff that happens inside, or preparing for something, related to invasions we mostly use guild chat "
Reporter:" There are rumors that you're the main reason why Hardcore founders left Squadron, is it right? What really happened? Can you tell us? "
Chukundah :" Yeah, it's true. When I join a guild I have standards, one can be giving everything free if you have and don't need. And they simply don't do it, they farmed spells and items , and didn't want to share for free, and also hiding from us, which pissed me off and drama started so they got kicked , and if you ask the players from Wiggle, that left them , they will say the same "
Reporter: " Have you heard about the Snajper scandal? What happened there? Why were the items from his account taken away?"
Chukundah :" Yes, I do , and poor Okla took all the blame , so I'm here to say that I'm the one who wanted to do this and asked Okla to help me. He(Snajper) was constantly, everyday talking shit to everyone , and one day he said he was going to leave us and help hardcore in next Sieges, so I suggested this to Okla and we took his stuff "
Reporter:" Squadron lost last week the battle for supremacy, what happened? "
Chukundah :"We were 23 players , Alex, Snook, Okla had other players playing on their accounts which takes all the experience , we also lacked the same AE's as we had last cs cause they couldn't play , and also in this cs we had new players playing with us , which they didn't follow our calls and were playing mostly for kills .. but I don't use this as an excuse to defeat , we did our best with what we had , gz for their win"
Reporter: " What is your opinion about Hardcore merging with Dynasty? "
Chukundah : "Don't know for sure if they were enemies or not, but since Hardcore didn't have enough players for CS , merging with some of them wasn't bad at all to keep the competition up "
Reporter :" RuSuLeTzZz said in his interview that Squadron is .exe guild? How do you comment that? "
Chukundah :"Cry is for free "
Reporter : " RuSuLeTzZz also said about you in his interview 'He's a funny guy with multiple personalities ( ADMIN caught him speaking about him from another account, LOL) '. How do you comment those accusations? "
Chukundah : "As I said above when you asked me about conflicts, I do that for fun ^^, maybe they think the contrary , don't really care "
Reporter : "Do you have any enemies in the game?"
Chukundah :"Everyone that is not in my guild / ally , is an enemy for me ."
Reporter :" How do you comment the rumors that Reporter is a Squadron member?"
Chukundah :" I don't believe you are, and if you were Squadron member i've would known for sure. About being a fan idk , good to know you are, haha "
Reporter:" Can you tell us about the funniest moments you've experienced on OldSquad?"
Chukundah :" The one I saw gay porn in Voyager's TeamViewer and shared in discord with guild ^^"
Reporter:" The number of online players started to decrease lately on Phoenix, what do you think are the main reasons?"
Chukundah :" As far I seen a lot of ppl quit due to fact of inactivity of Admin and also from the attacks that server/site suffered , and lack of interaction of him with players reporting stuff related to diff formulas in sv20 , hidden formulas in sv1, test server, and seeing bugs in game , and until now nothing being changed or helping them, and ppl still complaining, I can't say for sure these are the reasons , or if Admin really was inactive or fixing something , was just what I've seen in forum and in game of ppl speaking, or maybe was just players that gave up , along whit their alts.
Reporter:" Do you accept a challenge?"
Chukundah :" Ye "
Reporter:" There will be several questions and I need details on each answer of yours. "
Reporter :" Can you give us the name of the best guild master you ever had?"
Chukundah :"Boyager , good leader "
Reporter:" What did he do special and what did the other leaders you had not do?"
Chukundah :" Every dramas inside guild he always took care with peace and make all good without consequences or problems after "
Reporter:" How do you comment on rumors that TwoCheeks was the best guild master that Squadron ever had?"
Chukundah :" Is not a rumor , it's true , I didn't play with TwoCheeks as him being GM, that's why I didn't mention him , but TwoCheeks I can mention in CS leading aspect , he's one of the best making strats and adapt everyone to any situation in ongoing CS."
Reporter:" Can you give us the names of the 3 you respect the most in Hardcore and the names of the 3 players you dislike from Hardcore ?"
Chukundah :" "
Reporter:" Give us the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad."
Chukundah :"As i said before , everyone out of my guild / ally , is an enemy , so i don't like or respect no one in or out of Hardcore"
Reporter :" But you accepted challenge, so you have to name 3/3 with reasons ! "
Chukundah:" Haha, ok , "respect" i give to Mu3rTe ( the real one , not his brother that plays right now), No1liveer and Takeshi because they are good players, dislike goes for Makiaveli, Rusuletz(for being complete rats that came out of the sewer after GROM and DEADCATS stop playing and finally they have the chance to shine, and acting like they are good in the game because they copy everything from us from items to strats in cs and creating alts to ask opinions about builds). And sparkle for talking shit all the time and suck, as well."
Reporter :" Give us the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad "
Chukundah:"The one who I respect the most is Zutto for his skills as BK, which is a very hard char to play , TwoCheeks for his leading at cs , and Voyager for maintaining the guild peacefully after dramas. I dislike most Makiashit , Rusushit and Sparkleshit ."
Reporter:" Do you read the News Paper?"
Chukundah :"When I have the patience to read all you write , yes, i do ^^ it's entertaining"
Reporter:" What would you improve on NewsPaper ?
Chukundah :" I don't know exactly, but as far I see you really do a good job."
Reporter:" Do you think that NewsPaper adds +value on our community? "
Chukundah :" Yes, 100% "
Reporter: "Can you send a message for staff, friends , enemies?"
Chukundah :"To staff :Stop banning me from forum , i don't intent no harm or toxicness , only to keep players mad and take revenge in game ^^ friends : SALUTE , enemies: there is a profile pic on my char in ranking that's for them. "
Reporter: "Thank you very much for your time, patience and if I was respecting you as a player, now i started to respect you as a human being !! Keep up the good work!! Wish you Good Luck and have fun on Phoenix #2! "
Chukundah :" All good , keep doing the NewsPaper job and don't stop doing it , you are doing a great job and you keep the community active on forum as well , and sometimes making some drama which is good too :d "
This was Chukundah's interview, a top player on our community and a cerebral person that surprised me. I only knew him as a flamer and this interview changed my opinion 100% about him !!
