      Reporter got a reaction from AdriaNN in The "Old" New Beginnings   
      The rebirth of Phoenix #3 was a rough path as hundreds of players struggled to get the highest level as fast as possible in order to increase their rewards, for the creation of the first pair of wings to the excitement of getting your first drop of Blue Feather and crafting the first level 2 pair of wings. There's an insane battles in Icarus, you can see even three parties on 1 spot, fighting day and night to get that Feather/Crest, so they could start gearing up for the war that was inevitable at the first Castle Siege that allowed access to many benefits: Hardcore stood their ground as their roaster seemed to be more disciplined against the opponents , but the war is far from over, we are at the end of the Break 2 and things will become harder for every one as the creation of level 3 wings will be on everyone's mind, but this is not gonna be an easy task, as players will have to work together more than ever to achieve higher power and to advance through the ranks as fast as possible. If you've worked hard so far you will need to work even harder now to stay on top, as many will rise after the stage came to an end, and to start leveling up again, unlocking new BOSSES & GEAR along with the spoils of war that will be granted upon only the most strongest and most organized guilds & parties.
      Time has frozen in this stage, as always, everything is vague, many warriors are fighting but most do not understand why? Why am I doing this? Why am I trying, why do I do( everything I do ) if I don't have a party or a guild ?? That's exactly what you guys have to do, to get together, to make a perm, to make friends, the rest comes naturally, the top guilds guests will take you inside if you're "decently dressed". It's all about teamwork, well dressing up your party members, help your guild, your 'mans', and go Forward in top!!! This server is the real play to win version of MU online, of course many of you will say that you cannot win if you do not pay but let's see the facts: top 30 players since beginning are hard workers so they invest more than "money", they invested time!!! Remember that and they are actually the 'kingpins' of this game, they do not need to buy VIP cause they win it on Castle Siege, they do not need to donate for credits because they are active, they farm items and sell if you ( the rest of you) won't wake up! Advices : make friends, get stable pt (turn it into main party), join a guild and fight for supremacy!!!
      The beginning of Phoenix#3 was hard, it was about the most active and most determined players to get to top, HARDCORE again smashed all rankings because of their core but it is not all about that, they gain respect and developed a Strategy based on the main core, then they absorbed former Squadrons Core (Zutto, Waste, Fane, Avicii and FKinGCunT) and imagine that they did that just few days before TwoCheeks and his team announced the coming back thing. Hardcore won easy the first CS that counts with 20170 points, Neutral, the guild with our legendary Moldavian warriors are followers with 4687 points, Nosgoth, the guild from which we all had higher expectations, a guild made by former Diamond Core, got only 3818 points, they seemed a little disorganized, but on Inception they proved to be formidable opponents for those in Hardcore, and last but not least Squadron, this legendary guild seems to miss the players who left for Hardcore, that magnificent party composed of Zutto, Waste, Fane, Avicii and FKinGCunT, they also have lost a little ground in this server start, but in the future we hope to see again that great guild that is fighting with real chances to conquer the crown.

      Reporter got a reaction from semper in [Interview] Chukundah   
      This interview is about Chukundah, one of the best Summoner player in OldSquad history, at this moment he is ranked number 1 on Castle Siege Summoner pvp, no 1 in Summoner on HoF ranks, number one on Summoner on CC general rankings and no 1 Summoner on Mercenary ranking, he is also one of the most active players from our community in game and on forum.  
      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 !!

      Hello everyone,
      Did you miss me? Well, I don't know your opinion, but I definitely missed you! Today is a great day for Old Squad Community, a long-awaited one by many of the players who have already felt the taste of the quality of this server and, of course, the taste of the competition.

      The moment has come and we are pleased to enjoy this fresh data base with many surprises, from one data base to another we have seen these servers evolve based on the previous experience, we have enjoyed all those bloody "on the edge" wars, we have seen great guilds destroyed by the curse and turned in ash, we have also seen how some have managed to rise from their own ashes just like the sacred bird who inspired the name of this server, returning better organized and more motivated, with warriors led by pride, thirst for revenge and glory with great leaders who awakened an entire community, warriors who did not give up when everything was lost and made miracles overturning impossible situations, we saw battles won with pride but also shameful victories, we saw how hatred and pride turned strong characters covering them with shame, we felt many times the sour taste of disappointment seeing warriors we admire falling prey to recklessness, we all lived shameful but also glorious moments, everything happens here, dear readers in this beautiful community of which we are all part.
        
      A pleasant surprise was announced recently on forum by the founder of Squadron, TwoCheeks, a leader that is known as one of the most respected in the History of OldSquad, a leader who announced that will bring back the strongest core of this Legendary Guild and not only, also promising very interesting fights for supremacy.
      We already know that every database we have seen many guilds that we can say that are legendary, but we have also seen "unexpected" changes in the battle for supremacy and new guilds that have managed to amaze the entire Community. I wonder what will be the name of the guilds that will rise this time to face them? We already know the names of some legendary guilds who felt the taste of victory on the eternal battlefield called "Valey of Loren" so, will it be Hardcore? or Dynasty? or maybe  GROM? Will we see guilds like ATTACK or a return of some from the distant past like NONE? Will the battle for supremacy bring us new guilds? There is still time to find a guild that matches your type of gameplay, you can ask around: https://discord.gg/zjNSMPNc 
      One thing is for sure, time will reveal us the answers to all these questions and more. Having said that, all I can do is to wish you a lot of fun and I hope you relive all the feelings mentioned above!
       
                                                                                                     May the Curse stay away from you!

      We already know that every database we have seen many guilds that we can say that are legendary, but we have also seen "unexpected" changes in the battle for supremacy and new guilds that have managed to amaze the entire Community. I wonder what will be the name of the guilds that will rise this time to face them? We already know the names of some legendary guilds who felt the taste of victory on the eternal battlefield called "Valey of Loren" so, will it be Hardcore? or Dynasty? or maybe  GROM? Will we see guilds like ATTACK or a return of some from the distant past like NONE? Will the battle for supremacy bring us new guilds? There is still time to find a guild that matches your type of gameplay, you can ask around: https://discord.gg/zjNSMPNc 
      One thing is for sure, time will reveal us the answers to all these questions and more. Having said that, all I can do is to wish you a lot of fun and I hope you relive all the feelings mentioned above!

      Reporter got a reaction from Knightmare in [Interview] Mu3rTe   
      This interview is about Mu3rTe, one of the best players in our community and one of the most respected by most of the top players from our community, if you read past interviews you will find his name in the words of many top players interviewed from guilds who have been fighting each other for years. He is at this moment (the moment I started the interview) ranked no 1 on Soul Master reset rankings and Castle Siege Tank ranking, but what amazed me and made me want to take this interview is the fact that this player, on the last Inception, started very late, about 2 months from the start of the server and in about 1 month and a half he reached the 1st place. He is the only player I know who managed this performance, and I also want to mention that when he reached the 1st place, the top players from that data base had not given up playing actively yet.
      Reporter: "Hello, Mu3rTe, and welcome to The News Paper Hall of Fame !
      Mu3rTe:" Hello, Reporter and all other players that are reading this   "
      Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? "
      Mu3rte:"My name is Bogdan, I am 31 years old. I am currently working as a 2nd mate on commercial vessels, hoping for promotion soon. I don't have many hobbies, but I like listening to music and playing DOTA or Mu. So far my addiction to DOTA is over, huh, finally. All that remains is this MU. "
      Reporter:" Regarding this Covid 19 pandemic, did it affect you?"
      Mu3rTe:"I was really thinking it will, but it seems that I was lucky, my family and friends are safe, my arrival home wasn't delayed, so far so good. Still, I am disturbed to see the many people who don't follow minimum precautions. "
      Reporter : "When did you start to play Mu Online? "
      Mu3rTe:"It was so long ago :)) I would estimate 15 years ago, but can't say I played properly until just few years ago. Many long brakes, since I was passionate about DOTA. "
      Reporter : "How did you find OldSquad ?"
      Mu3rte:"Some of my old buddies told me about it, they were playing for 2-3 editions. "
      Reporter:" Can you name them?" 
      Mu3rTe:" I can't remember 100% who, but it could've been either Psyke or Scheau, but once in game I found many familiar names."
      Reporter: "How much time do you spend/day playing mu OldSquad (average)? "
      Mu3rTe:"A lot :)) Roughly 12hrs a day. "
      Reporter:" Where does Mu3rTe nickname come from?" 
      Mu3rTe:"Nothing special, mostly to represent that when I come, all the enemy troops will die   "
      Reporter :"What nicknames did you have in the past?"" 
      Mu3rTe:" Always Mu3rTe in Mu, I have various alts, most of the time Bobolina, b0gdaN."
      Reporter: "Do you have any VIP activated? What types of VIP did you use since the start and why?"
      Mu3rTe:"Currently using Dealer because of the extra entry, if you have resources, 1 extra entry makes a huge difference, otherwise Hunter is better. In the first 2 weeks we had Hunter because lacking of the jewel of chaos. Both VIPs are important if you wanna be in top and to maintain there, the competition is tough, ok, maybe not so hard... "
      Reporter: " How did you and your perma manage to get in top since day one ?  Can you reveal us "the secret"?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I can't say that there is a secret, they just thought about the best strategy, meaning best kill speed and survivability, therefor 3 MGs. They wished I was a MG also but that can't happen :)) Since it's early game, it is obvious that who is more active gets the benefit. More than this, you must have a plan, if you have spare time you could check on test server that was opened early, monster's lvl, monster numbers, some spots have bad spawns, many small details that counts in early. The problem is when you want to stay in top, check where enemies are farming, what items they have, and how lucky you are to get timely spells. You could sell a fire burst with 1k credits.. outrageous but still some people did it   Whatever mechanics you may know, unless you test them, they could be different, since OldSquad is a hard-worked custom server and keeps improving. Other than all this, there must be a good atmosphere within the party, and if possible for them to be as dedicated as you, otherwise it will get stressful, and unhealthy environment. Another thing that propelled us further than any other time, it is because of the pull we made (not possible anymore), players cried about, complained about, ADMIN satisfied them. It was not a special thing to do, just you had to move your mouse, but I guess its easier to look at the screen and complain "
      Reporter:"  What about HoF rankings, how come that you got only 1 trophy so far  (on this data base)? Is it that hard?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I never cared about HoF, they just came one after the other. SM it is not a character that shines early, and it's very item dependent if you wanna have impact in HoF. So far it's hard because of the characters that get extra points, 220 points per reset is huge early, but no worries   "
      Reporter :"Since you are top no. 1 Soul Master player on reset rankings, and you were tank number 1 until last week, can you reveal us a few tips about Soul Master pvp build ? Can you reveal your stats ? It is early yet on this data base, but where should a newbie add ML points after he finishes quest lvl 3? "
      Mu3rTe:"This is to early to tell, all builds have weaknesses. It is not a fixed point for which you should aim, don't have many pvp performances except CC, but I can say that if you don't make lots of hp it is quite pointless. More important than this, you should focus on getting more resets so you can be more versatile without losing too many things early. ML is same based on what is required for your party during exp or during CS. All characters evolves and shines during different stages of the game, it is important to take full advantages of the situation. Myself I don't prefer lots of HP, I am an aggressive type therefore energy and agility. In castle siege it's a different story, because SM is so bad early compared to others, there are not too many options than to go for tanky stats so you can get full advantage of the characters. For now I am no1 at CS tank because ppl were afraid to focus me, not because I was immortal :))))  "
      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 for pvm  ?"
      Mu3rTe:"To reach the top from first time you need a strong and active party. Make all events daily, BC and DS are very important to maintain chaos balance early, always save entry for bonus time. Calculate and evaluate spots frequently, choose your best exp. If you wanna be PVM, you must rely on your party for the first few resets. Build plenty agi and some VIT for survivability, than top up energy. It is quite bad for hunting goldens early game "
      Reporter :"What characters do you think are the best for PvP ? And for PVM ? 
      Mu3rTe:" Overall PvP, considering later stage of the game, vitRF is the one giving me troubles and the most easy to play I could say. There are better chars, yes, BK, SUMM but they require little more skill. PVM It's another story and complex based on your playin style. Overall spot wise eMG is the choice."
      Reporter: "Speaking of permanent party... Can you tell us a few words about the importance of a permanent party on OldSquad, and a short story about how you and your permanent mates got together? Is this the best permanent party you ever had?" 
      Mu3rTe:" Perma party is important if you wanna enjoy the game to the fullest, and here I mean participating to Castle Siege. Without a perma party is is more challenging  to climb the ladder and collecting items specially now when you can only have 2 accounts per pc. It is not impossible if you wanna play alone, sometimes it can be more relaxing. To have a perma party many times can be challenging, unwanted and puerile dramas, stress and being on the edge... so don't forget that this is a game, we play for pleasure not to fuck our brains for crap.
      About my party, I was asked by mafy if I wanna play this edition, so here I am:) they have a bigger history behind, I only know mafy, Redbull and Russu, we played sometimes. I can't say that it's the best party I ever had, but so far it's the most stable, yes, some drama from time to time, but we are still the 5 people from the beginning, that is an achievement so far   "
      Reporter: " You are now a Hardcore member but some "voices" tell me that in past you were a Squadron and a GROM member, is it right ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, I was in Squadron before, but GROM, no, very briefly 1-2 weeks at some point "
      Reporter : "Why did you left those two great guilds? What happened? "
      Mu3rte:" Grom nothing to say about, I was at some point I even forgot the reason, usually when I need to go for work, my char could get in the hand of other people, I left my account few times and some other got it, so maybe was one of those times..  About Squadron, last edition of inception was very imbalanced, agiRF was out of proportion, so I decided I should join the opposition in order to make things little more challenging, nothing hidden behind. "
      Reporter: " Do you think that Hardcore is invincible this data base ? Until now your guild has 4 wins in a row,, who is leading Hardcore during CS? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't believe in concept of "invincibility" , I do believe in team play, active members and organization. As long those are here, everything is possible. Anyhow, the way the server is set-up, you can't win forever, I am sure we will lose at some point and there is no shame in losing, it is important to see how to move on. During CS, all  suggestions are open if we could benefit from them, but in order to not make confusion, it is better if just some people speak. Roles are divided beforehand, and we are adjusting according to situations. Still it's Mu.. it's not some badass strategy game   once the basics are learned, the winners are those who execute better. "
      Reporter :" There are rumors that Diamond helped HARCORE two weeks ago on CS, are they true ? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't know who started rumors about this thing, but I am happy that there is more activity in CS, this way it is more challenging, from my knowledge, nobody from Hardcore asked any1 to do something for us, and I congratulate DIAMOND for doing their best and playing fair and square."
      Reporter:" On the last Inception Data Base, you started 2 months after its start and in about a month you reached top number one ranking, there are rumors that you didn't even have a permanent party when you started playing! How did you manage to get this performance? I guess a lot of people want to hear the full story from beginning to end "
      Mu3rTe:"Well, thanks to the system ADMIN designed, to catch up is so much easy. When all people have resets and almost instakill in DS and BC, even if you start late, build some tanky stats so you won't die and have full benefits from it. When people are 10-15 rr, you can make reset in devil square cause of the bonus exp. It was hard at beginning, you will die on all spots, but if you are active and come back, exp is easy also, when you start later, many party are disbanded so you can fill some places. For me, after 2 or 3 rr I joined Chukundah's party and I was dying on spot many times in karutan2, went bc6 few times got 1 hit, but didn't stop, perseverance and being active helps a lot. Also Gaffney changed his character to BK and he gave me his Sphinx set, it did help a lot, I can't say I was all alone. Later on due to imbalanced guild powers, I joined HARDCORE with mafy, we gathered some players from broken parties, some of them were much higher in reset than me, but exp was going smooth. Once I got some resets, I went full dmg build, and destroyed all events not many contesters in BC DS, some tried but... and this was it.. 2 months playing non stop basically :))"
      Reporter: "What do you think about last Castle Siege? How was the atmosphere in Hardcore? What do you think about Purge reconstruction? What about the evolution of Diamond?" 
      Mu3rTe : "Last CS was in top 10 Castle Sieges that I played, I am happy that more guilds decided to come, the fight for switches was very intense. We had some advantages, Diamond GM and his party was below 300 lvl, but they did a great job. The atmosphere in guild is as good as always, we were excited to play again, we had some missing key persons also, mafy, but we did good. I don't know about Purge, it just seems a different name, same people, maybe they will manage to refresh themselves, I had bigger expectations. About Diamond they look promising steadily improving, each CS having bigger impact, they hold the crown for quite a while and had huge impact on switches, I hope they will maintain integrity and play the way they did so far." 
      Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes I read the News Paper, some articles are very entertaining   but got to admit, the dramas collects more views."
      Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? "
      Mu3rTe:" I do not believe in superstitions, but I do think that your way of thinking can affect your lifestyle. I sometimes I am wondering, how can so big dramas happen, when in fact it was just some crap. Mainly the curse comes from people's mentality. "
      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?"
      Mu3rTe:"From what I notice, other than those 3 you just mentioned, there comes also the real life problems, that affects our mood  and lets say our sensitivity. One more could be that the problem are not addressed in a calmly manner and solutions are very often overlooked. People should see beyond problems, problems appear every day, but we have to pass over. If somehow MU creates problems for your life, better make some changes. "
      Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Fake news seems to be the key to our society, so maybe make more of those :)) "
      Reporter: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you like this data base ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Many changes, many improvements, I guess it should be a 9 "
      Reporter: " What would you change to this server? What do you expect from the following servers?"
      Mu3rTe:"So far many changes satisfied my needs, at the moment all looks good. I don't have expectations, I just take what it is and make best from it. "
      Reporter:" Two guys from your permanent party are members of the council, what do you think about this project? Do you, mafy and Endorphin talk about council often?" 
      Mu3rte:"The project is very good and the reasons behind are on point. We don't speak too much, we just have a laugh from time to time, when some councilors are frustrated when something is wrong just for personal reasons. "
      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? Do you and your party mates donate/donated? " 
      Mu3rTe:" I like it that it keeps improving, and slowly slowly getting to that point as a "play to win". Still, VIP affects a lot, but why I like this server is it that you can farm your credits for VIP quite easy if you are active. Myself, as a player who never donated, I am the proof that you can be top without donating. This edition maybe, my party donated for me at the first week so I wont drag them back   lucky me. From what I know, they only donated first week "
      Reporter: "I have 5 challenges for you, do you accept them? " 
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, go ahead "
      Reporter :"Challenge no 1:  I need the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:" mafy, Makiavelli, no third one   I dont have dislikes, maybe from time to time some personal vendettas. "
      Reporter: " Challenge no 2: Tell us 3 things you like most about our staff team, and 3 things you don't like about them!" 
      Mu3rTe:" I like ADMIN cause he tries to improve this game, Gion and Reporter doing good job, nothing else. I dislike that Gion is always in a hurry, sometimes he doesn't have time to give rewards  "
      Reporter:" Challenge no 3: Tell us 3 things you would improve on our server and top 3 things you like the most" 
      Mu3rTe:"I like the stage system the most, giving a balance sentiment so therefore CS are more enjoyable, various times I played on other servers there was a huge discrepancy. I like the CS system, this way you can enjoy 2 hours rather than 5 ending minutes. I like the automated system for events giving a fair chance for all players. I can't say I would improve many other things, since ADMIN is doing a great job implementing our thoughts and ideas. He comes with great ideas also. "
      Reporter: "Challenge no 4: Due to the fact that you were a member of the most important guilds on this server, call us in order which are the 3 strongest guilds you have been in, with details about each one, of course." 
      Mu3rTe:"Well, I would say that Squadron was the strongest guild overall, accumulating all past editions I played. I played there also, but it was a grim atmosphere, many afk times, but they were gathering people to come play at CS. Hardcore comes second, being a relatively fresh guild, I do like that people are active, hunting and doing events, and you can always find somebody to chat if you want. On third place, might be GROM but they were shady, even resorting to cheats, can't say much otherwise. "
      Reporter:" Challenge no5 :I need you to share with us a "dirty" secret, a shameful and funny incident that happened to you playing MuOldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:"For sure there are many as such, need to jog my memory here   I could say the most funny was, When I went in vacation, my party wanted to surprise me and lvl up my w3 wings to +13 or something, unfortunately, Makiavelli forgot to put talisman... and so I was without wings:)) spent like 1 more month without, trying to find w3 +lk. " 
      Reporter:" Thank you very much for time and patience, I wish you GL on all your plans!"

      Reporter got a reaction from snake in [Interview] Mu3rTe   
      This interview is about Mu3rTe, one of the best players in our community and one of the most respected by most of the top players from our community, if you read past interviews you will find his name in the words of many top players interviewed from guilds who have been fighting each other for years. He is at this moment (the moment I started the interview) ranked no 1 on Soul Master reset rankings and Castle Siege Tank ranking, but what amazed me and made me want to take this interview is the fact that this player, on the last Inception, started very late, about 2 months from the start of the server and in about 1 month and a half he reached the 1st place. He is the only player I know who managed this performance, and I also want to mention that when he reached the 1st place, the top players from that data base had not given up playing actively yet.
      Reporter: "Hello, Mu3rTe, and welcome to The News Paper Hall of Fame !
      Mu3rTe:" Hello, Reporter and all other players that are reading this   "
      Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? "
      Mu3rte:"My name is Bogdan, I am 31 years old. I am currently working as a 2nd mate on commercial vessels, hoping for promotion soon. I don't have many hobbies, but I like listening to music and playing DOTA or Mu. So far my addiction to DOTA is over, huh, finally. All that remains is this MU. "
      Reporter:" Regarding this Covid 19 pandemic, did it affect you?"
      Mu3rTe:"I was really thinking it will, but it seems that I was lucky, my family and friends are safe, my arrival home wasn't delayed, so far so good. Still, I am disturbed to see the many people who don't follow minimum precautions. "
      Reporter : "When did you start to play Mu Online? "
      Mu3rTe:"It was so long ago :)) I would estimate 15 years ago, but can't say I played properly until just few years ago. Many long brakes, since I was passionate about DOTA. "
      Reporter : "How did you find OldSquad ?"
      Mu3rte:"Some of my old buddies told me about it, they were playing for 2-3 editions. "
      Reporter:" Can you name them?" 
      Mu3rTe:" I can't remember 100% who, but it could've been either Psyke or Scheau, but once in game I found many familiar names."
      Reporter: "How much time do you spend/day playing mu OldSquad (average)? "
      Mu3rTe:"A lot :)) Roughly 12hrs a day. "
      Reporter:" Where does Mu3rTe nickname come from?" 
      Mu3rTe:"Nothing special, mostly to represent that when I come, all the enemy troops will die   "
      Reporter :"What nicknames did you have in the past?"" 
      Mu3rTe:" Always Mu3rTe in Mu, I have various alts, most of the time Bobolina, b0gdaN."
      Reporter: "Do you have any VIP activated? What types of VIP did you use since the start and why?"
      Mu3rTe:"Currently using Dealer because of the extra entry, if you have resources, 1 extra entry makes a huge difference, otherwise Hunter is better. In the first 2 weeks we had Hunter because lacking of the jewel of chaos. Both VIPs are important if you wanna be in top and to maintain there, the competition is tough, ok, maybe not so hard... "
      Reporter: " How did you and your perma manage to get in top since day one ?  Can you reveal us "the secret"?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I can't say that there is a secret, they just thought about the best strategy, meaning best kill speed and survivability, therefor 3 MGs. They wished I was a MG also but that can't happen :)) Since it's early game, it is obvious that who is more active gets the benefit. More than this, you must have a plan, if you have spare time you could check on test server that was opened early, monster's lvl, monster numbers, some spots have bad spawns, many small details that counts in early. The problem is when you want to stay in top, check where enemies are farming, what items they have, and how lucky you are to get timely spells. You could sell a fire burst with 1k credits.. outrageous but still some people did it   Whatever mechanics you may know, unless you test them, they could be different, since OldSquad is a hard-worked custom server and keeps improving. Other than all this, there must be a good atmosphere within the party, and if possible for them to be as dedicated as you, otherwise it will get stressful, and unhealthy environment. Another thing that propelled us further than any other time, it is because of the pull we made (not possible anymore), players cried about, complained about, ADMIN satisfied them. It was not a special thing to do, just you had to move your mouse, but I guess its easier to look at the screen and complain "
      Reporter:"  What about HoF rankings, how come that you got only 1 trophy so far  (on this data base)? Is it that hard?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I never cared about HoF, they just came one after the other. SM it is not a character that shines early, and it's very item dependent if you wanna have impact in HoF. So far it's hard because of the characters that get extra points, 220 points per reset is huge early, but no worries   "
      Reporter :"Since you are top no. 1 Soul Master player on reset rankings, and you were tank number 1 until last week, can you reveal us a few tips about Soul Master pvp build ? Can you reveal your stats ? It is early yet on this data base, but where should a newbie add ML points after he finishes quest lvl 3? "
      Mu3rTe:"This is to early to tell, all builds have weaknesses. It is not a fixed point for which you should aim, don't have many pvp performances except CC, but I can say that if you don't make lots of hp it is quite pointless. More important than this, you should focus on getting more resets so you can be more versatile without losing too many things early. ML is same based on what is required for your party during exp or during CS. All characters evolves and shines during different stages of the game, it is important to take full advantages of the situation. Myself I don't prefer lots of HP, I am an aggressive type therefore energy and agility. In castle siege it's a different story, because SM is so bad early compared to others, there are not too many options than to go for tanky stats so you can get full advantage of the characters. For now I am no1 at CS tank because ppl were afraid to focus me, not because I was immortal :))))  "
      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 for pvm  ?"
      Mu3rTe:"To reach the top from first time you need a strong and active party. Make all events daily, BC and DS are very important to maintain chaos balance early, always save entry for bonus time. Calculate and evaluate spots frequently, choose your best exp. If you wanna be PVM, you must rely on your party for the first few resets. Build plenty agi and some VIT for survivability, than top up energy. It is quite bad for hunting goldens early game "
      Reporter :"What characters do you think are the best for PvP ? And for PVM ? 
      Mu3rTe:" Overall PvP, considering later stage of the game, vitRF is the one giving me troubles and the most easy to play I could say. There are better chars, yes, BK, SUMM but they require little more skill. PVM It's another story and complex based on your playin style. Overall spot wise eMG is the choice."
      Reporter: "Speaking of permanent party... Can you tell us a few words about the importance of a permanent party on OldSquad, and a short story about how you and your permanent mates got together? Is this the best permanent party you ever had?" 
      Mu3rTe:" Perma party is important if you wanna enjoy the game to the fullest, and here I mean participating to Castle Siege. Without a perma party is is more challenging  to climb the ladder and collecting items specially now when you can only have 2 accounts per pc. It is not impossible if you wanna play alone, sometimes it can be more relaxing. To have a perma party many times can be challenging, unwanted and puerile dramas, stress and being on the edge... so don't forget that this is a game, we play for pleasure not to fuck our brains for crap.
      About my party, I was asked by mafy if I wanna play this edition, so here I am:) they have a bigger history behind, I only know mafy, Redbull and Russu, we played sometimes. I can't say that it's the best party I ever had, but so far it's the most stable, yes, some drama from time to time, but we are still the 5 people from the beginning, that is an achievement so far   "
      Reporter: " You are now a Hardcore member but some "voices" tell me that in past you were a Squadron and a GROM member, is it right ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, I was in Squadron before, but GROM, no, very briefly 1-2 weeks at some point "
      Reporter : "Why did you left those two great guilds? What happened? "
      Mu3rte:" Grom nothing to say about, I was at some point I even forgot the reason, usually when I need to go for work, my char could get in the hand of other people, I left my account few times and some other got it, so maybe was one of those times..  About Squadron, last edition of inception was very imbalanced, agiRF was out of proportion, so I decided I should join the opposition in order to make things little more challenging, nothing hidden behind. "
      Reporter: " Do you think that Hardcore is invincible this data base ? Until now your guild has 4 wins in a row,, who is leading Hardcore during CS? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't believe in concept of "invincibility" , I do believe in team play, active members and organization. As long those are here, everything is possible. Anyhow, the way the server is set-up, you can't win forever, I am sure we will lose at some point and there is no shame in losing, it is important to see how to move on. During CS, all  suggestions are open if we could benefit from them, but in order to not make confusion, it is better if just some people speak. Roles are divided beforehand, and we are adjusting according to situations. Still it's Mu.. it's not some badass strategy game   once the basics are learned, the winners are those who execute better. "
      Reporter :" There are rumors that Diamond helped HARCORE two weeks ago on CS, are they true ? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't know who started rumors about this thing, but I am happy that there is more activity in CS, this way it is more challenging, from my knowledge, nobody from Hardcore asked any1 to do something for us, and I congratulate DIAMOND for doing their best and playing fair and square."
      Reporter:" On the last Inception Data Base, you started 2 months after its start and in about a month you reached top number one ranking, there are rumors that you didn't even have a permanent party when you started playing! How did you manage to get this performance? I guess a lot of people want to hear the full story from beginning to end "
      Mu3rTe:"Well, thanks to the system ADMIN designed, to catch up is so much easy. When all people have resets and almost instakill in DS and BC, even if you start late, build some tanky stats so you won't die and have full benefits from it. When people are 10-15 rr, you can make reset in devil square cause of the bonus exp. It was hard at beginning, you will die on all spots, but if you are active and come back, exp is easy also, when you start later, many party are disbanded so you can fill some places. For me, after 2 or 3 rr I joined Chukundah's party and I was dying on spot many times in karutan2, went bc6 few times got 1 hit, but didn't stop, perseverance and being active helps a lot. Also Gaffney changed his character to BK and he gave me his Sphinx set, it did help a lot, I can't say I was all alone. Later on due to imbalanced guild powers, I joined HARDCORE with mafy, we gathered some players from broken parties, some of them were much higher in reset than me, but exp was going smooth. Once I got some resets, I went full dmg build, and destroyed all events not many contesters in BC DS, some tried but... and this was it.. 2 months playing non stop basically :))"
      Reporter: "What do you think about last Castle Siege? How was the atmosphere in Hardcore? What do you think about Purge reconstruction? What about the evolution of Diamond?" 
      Mu3rTe : "Last CS was in top 10 Castle Sieges that I played, I am happy that more guilds decided to come, the fight for switches was very intense. We had some advantages, Diamond GM and his party was below 300 lvl, but they did a great job. The atmosphere in guild is as good as always, we were excited to play again, we had some missing key persons also, mafy, but we did good. I don't know about Purge, it just seems a different name, same people, maybe they will manage to refresh themselves, I had bigger expectations. About Diamond they look promising steadily improving, each CS having bigger impact, they hold the crown for quite a while and had huge impact on switches, I hope they will maintain integrity and play the way they did so far." 
      Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes I read the News Paper, some articles are very entertaining   but got to admit, the dramas collects more views."
      Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? "
      Mu3rTe:" I do not believe in superstitions, but I do think that your way of thinking can affect your lifestyle. I sometimes I am wondering, how can so big dramas happen, when in fact it was just some crap. Mainly the curse comes from people's mentality. "
      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?"
      Mu3rTe:"From what I notice, other than those 3 you just mentioned, there comes also the real life problems, that affects our mood  and lets say our sensitivity. One more could be that the problem are not addressed in a calmly manner and solutions are very often overlooked. People should see beyond problems, problems appear every day, but we have to pass over. If somehow MU creates problems for your life, better make some changes. "
      Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Fake news seems to be the key to our society, so maybe make more of those :)) "
      Reporter: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you like this data base ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Many changes, many improvements, I guess it should be a 9 "
      Reporter: " What would you change to this server? What do you expect from the following servers?"
      Mu3rTe:"So far many changes satisfied my needs, at the moment all looks good. I don't have expectations, I just take what it is and make best from it. "
      Reporter:" Two guys from your permanent party are members of the council, what do you think about this project? Do you, mafy and Endorphin talk about council often?" 
      Mu3rte:"The project is very good and the reasons behind are on point. We don't speak too much, we just have a laugh from time to time, when some councilors are frustrated when something is wrong just for personal reasons. "
      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? Do you and your party mates donate/donated? " 
      Mu3rTe:" I like it that it keeps improving, and slowly slowly getting to that point as a "play to win". Still, VIP affects a lot, but why I like this server is it that you can farm your credits for VIP quite easy if you are active. Myself, as a player who never donated, I am the proof that you can be top without donating. This edition maybe, my party donated for me at the first week so I wont drag them back   lucky me. From what I know, they only donated first week "
      Reporter: "I have 5 challenges for you, do you accept them? " 
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, go ahead "
      Reporter :"Challenge no 1:  I need the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:" mafy, Makiavelli, no third one   I dont have dislikes, maybe from time to time some personal vendettas. "
      Reporter: " Challenge no 2: Tell us 3 things you like most about our staff team, and 3 things you don't like about them!" 
      Mu3rTe:" I like ADMIN cause he tries to improve this game, Gion and Reporter doing good job, nothing else. I dislike that Gion is always in a hurry, sometimes he doesn't have time to give rewards  "
      Reporter:" Challenge no 3: Tell us 3 things you would improve on our server and top 3 things you like the most" 
      Mu3rTe:"I like the stage system the most, giving a balance sentiment so therefore CS are more enjoyable, various times I played on other servers there was a huge discrepancy. I like the CS system, this way you can enjoy 2 hours rather than 5 ending minutes. I like the automated system for events giving a fair chance for all players. I can't say I would improve many other things, since ADMIN is doing a great job implementing our thoughts and ideas. He comes with great ideas also. "
      Reporter: "Challenge no 4: Due to the fact that you were a member of the most important guilds on this server, call us in order which are the 3 strongest guilds you have been in, with details about each one, of course." 
      Mu3rTe:"Well, I would say that Squadron was the strongest guild overall, accumulating all past editions I played. I played there also, but it was a grim atmosphere, many afk times, but they were gathering people to come play at CS. Hardcore comes second, being a relatively fresh guild, I do like that people are active, hunting and doing events, and you can always find somebody to chat if you want. On third place, might be GROM but they were shady, even resorting to cheats, can't say much otherwise. "
      Reporter:" Challenge no5 :I need you to share with us a "dirty" secret, a shameful and funny incident that happened to you playing MuOldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:"For sure there are many as such, need to jog my memory here   I could say the most funny was, When I went in vacation, my party wanted to surprise me and lvl up my w3 wings to +13 or something, unfortunately, Makiavelli forgot to put talisman... and so I was without wings:)) spent like 1 more month without, trying to find w3 +lk. " 
      Reporter:" Thank you very much for time and patience, I wish you GL on all your plans!"
      Mu3rte:"Without fun there is no sense of playing it ! GL to you, Reporter! "

      Mu3rTe:"I don't know who started rumors about this thing, but I am happy that there is more activity in CS, this way it is more challenging, from my knowledge, nobody from Hardcore asked any1 to do something for us, and I congratulate DIAMOND for doing their best and playing fair and square."
      Reporter:" On the last Inception Data Base, you started 2 months after its start and in about a month you reached top number one ranking, there are rumors that you didn't even have a permanent party when you started playing! How did you manage to get this performance? I guess a lot of people want to hear the full story from beginning to end "
      Mu3rTe:"Well, thanks to the system ADMIN designed, to catch up is so much easy. When all people have resets and almost instakill in DS and BC, even if you start late, build some tanky stats so you won't die and have full benefits from it. When people are 10-15 rr, you can make reset in devil square cause of the bonus exp. It was hard at beginning, you will die on all spots, but if you are active and come back, exp is easy also, when you start later, many party are disbanded so you can fill some places. For me, after 2 or 3 rr I joined Chukundah's party and I was dying on spot many times in karutan2, went bc6 few times got 1 hit, but didn't stop, perseverance and being active helps a lot. Also Gaffney changed his character to BK and he gave me his Sphinx set, it did help a lot, I can't say I was all alone. Later on due to imbalanced guild powers, I joined HARDCORE with mafy, we gathered some players from broken parties, some of them were much higher in reset than me, but exp was going smooth. Once I got some resets, I went full dmg build, and destroyed all events not many contesters in BC DS, some tried but... and this was it.. 2 months playing non stop basically :))"
      Reporter: "What do you think about last Castle Siege? How was the atmosphere in Hardcore? What do you think about Purge reconstruction? What about the evolution of Diamond?" 
      Mu3rTe : "Last CS was in top 10 Castle Sieges that I played, I am happy that more guilds decided to come, the fight for switches was very intense. We had some advantages, Diamond GM and his party was below 300 lvl, but they did a great job. The atmosphere in guild is as good as always, we were excited to play again, we had some missing key persons also, mafy, but we did good. I don't know about Purge, it just seems a different name, same people, maybe they will manage to refresh themselves, I had bigger expectations. About Diamond they look promising steadily improving, each CS having bigger impact, they hold the crown for quite a while and had huge impact on switches, I hope they will maintain integrity and play the way they did so far." 
      Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes I read the News Paper, some articles are very entertaining   but got to admit, the dramas collects more views."
      Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? "
      Mu3rTe:" I do not believe in superstitions, but I do think that your way of thinking can affect your lifestyle. I sometimes I am wondering, how can so big dramas happen, when in fact it was just some crap. Mainly the curse comes from people's mentality. "
      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?"
      Mu3rTe:"From what I notice, other than those 3 you just mentioned, there comes also the real life problems, that affects our mood  and lets say our sensitivity. One more could be that the problem are not addressed in a calmly manner and solutions are very often overlooked. People should see beyond problems, problems appear every day, but we have to pass over. If somehow MU creates problems for your life, better make some changes. "
      Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Fake news seems to be the key to our society, so maybe make more of those :)) "
      Reporter: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you like this data base ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Many changes, many improvements, I guess it should be a 9 "
      Reporter: " What would you change to this server? What do you expect from the following servers?"
      Mu3rTe:"So far many changes satisfied my needs, at the moment all looks good. I don't have expectations, I just take what it is and make best from it. "
      Reporter:" Two guys from your permanent party are members of the council, what do you think about this project? Do you, mafy and Endorphin talk about council often?" 
      Mu3rte:"The project is very good and the reasons behind are on point. We don't speak too much, we just have a laugh from time to time, when some councilors are frustrated when something is wrong just for personal reasons. "
      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? Do you and your party mates donate/donated? " 
      Mu3rTe:" I like it that it keeps improving, and slowly slowly getting to that point as a "play to win". Still, VIP affects a lot, but why I like this server is it that you can farm your credits for VIP quite easy if you are active. Myself, as a player who never donated, I am the proof that you can be top without donating. This edition maybe, my party donated for me at the first week so I wont drag them back   lucky me. From what I know, they only donated first week "
      Reporter: "I have 5 challenges for you, do you accept them? " 
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, go ahead "
      Reporter :"Challenge no 1:  I need the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:" mafy, Makiavelli, no third one   I dont have dislikes, maybe from time to time some personal vendettas. "
      Reporter: " Challenge no 2: Tell us 3 things you like most about our staff team, and 3 things you don't like about them!" 
      Mu3rTe:" I like ADMIN cause he tries to improve this game, Gion and Reporter doing good job, nothing else. I dislike that Gion is always in a hurry, sometimes he doesn't have time to give rewards  "
      Reporter:" Challenge no 3: Tell us 3 things you would improve on our server and top 3 things you like the most" 
      Mu3rTe:"I like the stage system the most, giving a balance sentiment so therefore CS are more enjoyable, various times I played on other servers there was a huge discrepancy. I like the CS system, this way you can enjoy 2 hours rather than 5 ending minutes. I like the automated system for events giving a fair chance for all players. I can't say I would improve many other things, since ADMIN is doing a great job implementing our thoughts and ideas. He comes with great ideas also. "
      Reporter: "Challenge no 4: Due to the fact that you were a member of the most important guilds on this server, call us in order which are the 3 strongest guilds you have been in, with details about each one, of course." 
      Mu3rTe:"Well, I would say that Squadron was the strongest guild overall, accumulating all past editions I played. I played there also, but it was a grim atmosphere, many afk times, but they were gathering people to come play at CS. Hardcore comes second, being a relatively fresh guild, I do like that people are active, hunting and doing events, and you can always find somebody to chat if you want. On third place, might be GROM but they were shady, even resorting to cheats, can't say much otherwise. "
      Reporter:" Challenge no5 :I need you to share with us a "dirty" secret, a shameful and funny incident that happened to you playing MuOldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:"For sure there are many as such, need to jog my memory here   I could say the most funny was, When I went in vacation, my party wanted to surprise me and lvl up my w3 wings to +13 or something, unfortunately, Makiavelli forgot to put talisman... and so I was without wings:)) spent like 1 more month without, trying to find w3 +lk. " 
      Reporter:" Thank you very much for time and patience, I wish you GL on all your plans!"
      Mu3rte:"Without fun there is no sense of playing it ! GL to you, Reporter! "
      This was Mu3rTe's Interview, one of the best players from our community, I am happy to finally do this interview because I wanted to take it since last year !

      Reporter got a reaction from No1LiveEr in The Curse of Inception Episode 5   
      A fairytale battle took place on the eternal battlefield called Valley of Loren, a battle like none ever seen before, a historical one that will remain written by the blood of these fighters in the stones from which the great castle is built. Four guilds took part in this epic bloody battle: Hardcore, Purge, Diamond and FORMOZA
      The guild that holds the supremacy of the server, Hardcore, led by No1LiveEr, as usual, prepared an almost perfect defense, upgraded the gates and the statues thus recovering 40% of the deficit which was not negligible (-3500 points). They started the fight being organized even from the first gates, trying to slow down the attacking guilds. The warriors of this great guild had a very difficult mission, an almost impossible one, considering last week's balanced fight.
      Purge, led by Snook, the guild that launches the attack, has once again brought in 25 of the best fighters ready to shed their blood to break this glorious Hardcore domination which lasted since this server's debut, followed by Diamond led by HVMAN, a guild that failed last week to make the threshold of 2500 points , but with a good performance, especially the "Glowing" Glowa which stamped number one in the previous battle, and the guild ranked with the fourth chance, FORMOZA, under the leadership of Mamelcia, a guild that takes part in this war for the first time.
      Due to the fact that we have three attacking guilds, the gates and statues fell very quickly, so, after the first 10 minutes have elapsed, the fight moves inside the castle, and the madness begins: the elves from Hardcore and Purge move amazingly, buffing, freezing, running, I can barely follow them, at the switches the fight is chaotic, Purge manages to register first, but next,  the most focused stampers seem those from Diamond who manage to register pretty fast, although HVMAN and Snook are constantly hunted by Hardcore's elves and cannons. 
      The fight is spectacular, we enter the last hour of the fight, and the score is commensurate, Purge leads accumulating so far 2942 points, followed by Diamond with 2050 points accumulated, Hardcore who managed to reduce the handicap quite a lot holding 1604 points and the last were those from FORMOZA with only 200 points.
      The crown switches from one end to the other of these great three leaders, Diamond takes advantage of the fierce battle between Hardcore and Purge and begins to gain precious points when they hold the Crown, while Hardcore is recovering points step by step due to the multiple kills made by RuSuLeTzZz "The Machine Gun" , Mu3rTe "The Death Bringer", "The Stunning" Mael  and BugBless "The Terror" . Purge counterattacks using its legends, "The Amazing" Zutto, "The Insane" Chukundah, "The Bloody" FKingCunt helped by MindPower and Duke. 
      "Glowing" Glowa makes wonders again on the top switch and Almighty fights on a par with the other stampers for the bottom switch, so Diamond have countless chances to register, some successfully crowned, Achilles' heel for Diamond is still HVMAN which due to the fact that it was low level (297) was killed much easier than the other leaders but he still fights from peer to peer with them for The Crown.  
      The fight continues to be dominated by Hardcore's countless kills slowly proposing in the first place, Diamond dominates with important minutes over the other guilds holding the crown on HVMAN's head for the longest time, they take full advantage of the fights between Hardcore and Purge, those (although we see a little chaos in their fight) seems to have the balance of the game with the cannons focused on Hardcore, being one step behind them. After we enter in the most important 30 minutes of this battle the score is: 12493 for Hardcore , Purge follows with 8192 points and currently holds the crown, Diamond accumulates 6640 points, and FORMOZA manages to accumulate 831 points and gives up this fight. 
      As we approach the last 15 minutes of the game, Purge is about to overtake Hardcore but HVMAN snatches the crown from Snook's head, and Purge seems to lose clarity and morale, everything balances and when there are 6 minutes from the game the score looks like this: Hardcore 13806 points, Purge 13337 points and Diamond who still own the crown, has 9438 points. 
      Everything is possible at this time, If Diamond keeps the position of defenders for another 6 minutes, they can win, if any of the other two leaders registers, will win the battle. The fight for switches seems to be dominated by Hardcore who manage to register when there are ONLY 4 minutes left in this battle and everything falls apart for Purge and Diamond, who have to settle for Lord Boxes so hard-worked, 4 for Diamond and 4 for Purge . 
      Fantastic final for Hardcore in this battle, which continues to be the guild that dominates and hold the supremacy for 4 consecutive week. The warriors from Purge feel that they need to change something and start a reform, a reorganization to help them win next week, the leaders of this guild have decided to disband the guild and rebuild a new one, this is called "Neutral". Diamond were the surprise of the week, showing strength and unity, if last week they failed to cross the threshold, this week astonishing us all were on the verge of winning!
      Congratulations to all for this great fight!

      It's been 2 weeks since I wrote the last article about the spectacular fight for supremacy. In these two weeks the time seemed to be frozen, everyone wants to take advantage of this moment (so the server became the most balanced server in the history of OldSquad) except OneWar, no one wants to go for the 15th reset because it enters the stage, and one can lose advantage, or does not recover the gap, but in the meantime we have a balanced top 100. Right now everyone in the top 100 has 14 resets or is just one step away from it and this is lovely! The balance is "at home" on OldSquad after almost 2 months of play and promises incredible battles for supremacy. Speaking, the  two battles have been fought since then, the first of them was dominated from beginning to the end by Hardcore, they took advantage of the disorganization of opponents at that time (Neutral, Diamond and FORMOZA). 
      While on the Hardcore side we could see the "perfect" organization, the other three guilds were simply MASSACRED, they had chaotic attacks, disorganization, not even a bit of vision or any strategy, at one point the castle looked like a huge spot on which  the Hardcore warriors were quietly leveling, having in the foreground these three superstars: RuSuLeTzZz "The Machine Gun", "The Crusher" mafy and Mu3rTe "The Death Bringer". Time passes slowly, very slowly as if to prolong the agony of the three guilds with fighters who came to the battlefield with "plastic weapons".
      Eventually the fight is over and Hardcore remain invincible after the most unbalanced fight from the beginning of the server until now, It was just an "easy practice" for No1LiveEr's crew, a victory without any emotion. 
      The following week was a busy one in our community, Neutral was in the forefront, disbanding after that shameful defeat, and a new scandal shook the forum... Chukundah, Snook and Venom robbed Hardwell, Zutto and FKinGCunT in revenge after Zutto did the same thing by robbing Snook, an entire drama was unleashed and The Curse that has been hidden so far suddenly hit so hard cause probably forever splitting the warriors from the second guild as power on the server. "The Amazing" Zutto gave up the fight, Trippy too, FcKinGCunT went to Hardcore (this week), Snook and Chukundah's party joined Dynasty, Exillia and few more went in Diamond.
      The week passes quickly, a new guild takes shape under the leadership of Fane, who collected one party from Neutral and FORMOZA's core.  We saw in the past that he is an experienced leader in the fight for supremacy, who, after a break of about a year, returns to lead a guild in the Battle for Supremacy, its name is Dynasty and looks very promising. Diamond is reorganizing the strategy after the last defeat, also receiving some fresh forces from Neutral, and MIDGARD is still looking for a strategy, their alliance with FORMOZA did not seem to work last week, they got only one Lord Box, so this time they will go on their own. Eventually these 3 guilds register at Castle Siege and for the first time we see a guild (Dynasty) registering signs of lord to ban a build, it took 5 weeks to see this "miracle" - a strategy to consider.
      Sunday came, the invincible Hardcore Warriors are preparing a new defense, everything seems to work perfectly for them, with the number one enemy guild destroyed, and with an unprecedented victory in the last week, everything seems to be "a new walk of recreation through the land of trials" for them. 
      Dynasty, to everyone's surprise, although they registered 305 signs of the lord, didn't ban any build, but from the beginning the fight seems balanced, Diamond and MIDGARD tries to keep up, Hardcore has a handicap of 3000 points but seem to recover well and and after the first hour the score is: Dynasty 4548 points, Diamond 2886 points, MIDGARD 2142 points and Hardcore has 461 points.
      In this last hour, the fight for the switches seems to be disputed between the Dynasty and Diamond guilds, the ones from Hardcore are focusing on kills but it is a strategy that doesn't seem to bear fruit because enemy stamps don't fall anymore, the chaos that took over the other guilds last week now seems to be spreading over Hardcore, although they score a lot of kills, they fail to register because they are losing the fight for switches and so we enter in the last 25 minutes, the crown on No1LiveEr's head starts to shake seriously, Dynasty seem to be in control, Diamond doesn't seem to give up even though they are a little behind but they are in the defenders' position, while MIDGARD doesn't seem to matter too much. Since the beginning of this last hour, the score in the last 23 minutes is as follows: Dynasty 9510 points, Diamond 6300 points, Hardcore 4242 points, MIDGARD 3424 points.
      Time passes in favor of those in Diamond who slowly recover the deficit of points and before the last 5 minutes they are on the 1st place with a very small difference of points. The fight between Dynasty and Hardcore for the crown is won by Hardcore in these last 5 minutes and those from Dynasty have one more chance to register quickly, but this does not happen and we have in the PREMIERE a guild that manages to end Hardcore's domination. 
      HVMAN snatches the crown from No1LiveEr's head and can celebrate with his team the first victory on this great war, a victory that slipped through their fingers in the past, a desired victory, a hard worked victory that could not be more beautiful, a victory won in the last 15 minutes that these warriors will not forget soon. On the other side, MIDGARD, if they hadn't let their guard down and continued to fight like in the first hour, would have scored a lot more points. Dynasty: if they would've built a solid strategy based on a build-ban they could have won, anyway they had a good performance, while Hardcore although they accumulated until the end 7022 points would not have won this fight even if they had not had the disadvantage of 3000 points. There are "voices" that say that "arrogance" combined with the attempt to repeat the strategy that humiliated 3 guilds a week ago was the biggest weakness (Achilles heal) for this great guild that dominated the server from the beginning until now. These "voices" say that now they are the ones hunted by the curse, invoking the fact that the leaders of this great guild no longer understand each other, the proof being that No1LiveEr is no longer a member of the main Hardcore party and he starts to fall from top.
      Was this the end of the Hardcore empire? Will Dynasty be able to fight the same without the help of FORMOZA's core players? Are we preparing for a "Diamond" era? 
      The only thing that is certain is that the crown will rest on the head of the leader who has the most ardent and daring warriors, the guild most hungry after victory, with the greatest desire, will proudly hold the supremacy of the server

      In this last hour, the fight for the switches seems to be disputed between the Dynasty and Diamond guilds, the ones from Hardcore are focusing on kills but it is a strategy that doesn't seem to bear fruit because enemy stamps don't fall anymore, the chaos that took over the other guilds last week now seems to be spreading over Hardcore, although they score a lot of kills, they fail to register because they are losing the fight for switches and so we enter in the last 25 minutes, the crown on No1LiveEr's head starts to shake seriously, Dynasty seem to be in control, Diamond doesn't seem to give up even though they are a little behind but they are in the defenders' position, while MIDGARD doesn't seem to matter too much. Since the beginning of this last hour, the score in the last 23 minutes is as follows: Dynasty 9510 points, Diamond 6300 points, Hardcore 4242 points, MIDGARD 3424 points.
      Time passes in favor of those in Diamond who slowly recover the deficit of points and before the last 5 minutes they are on the 1st place with a very small difference of points. The fight between Dynasty and Hardcore for the crown is won by Hardcore in these last 5 minutes and those from Dynasty have one more chance to register quickly, but this does not happen and we have in the PREMIERE a guild that manages to end Hardcore's domination. 
      HVMAN snatches the crown from No1LiveEr's head and can celebrate with his team the first victory on this great war, a victory that slipped through their fingers in the past, a desired victory, a hard worked victory that could not be more beautiful, a victory won in the last 15 minutes that these warriors will not forget soon. On the other side, MIDGARD, if they hadn't let their guard down and continued to fight like in the first hour, would have scored a lot more points. Dynasty: if they would've built a solid strategy based on a build-ban they could have won, anyway they had a good performance, while Hardcore although they accumulated until the end 7022 points would not have won this fight even if they had not had the disadvantage of 3000 points. There are "voices" that say that "arrogance" combined with the attempt to repeat the strategy that humiliated 3 guilds a week ago was the biggest weakness (Achilles heal) for this great guild that dominated the server from the beginning until now. These "voices" say that now they are the ones hunted by the curse, invoking the fact that the leaders of this great guild no longer understand each other, the proof being that No1LiveEr is no longer a member of the main Hardcore party and he starts to fall from top.
      Was this the end of the Hardcore empire? Will Dynasty be able to fight the same without the help of FORMOZA's core players? Are we preparing for a "Diamond" era? 
      The only thing that is certain is that the crown will rest on the head of the leader who has the most ardent and daring warriors, the guild most hungry after victory, with the greatest desire, will proudly hold the supremacy of the server

      It's been 2 weeks since I wrote the last article about the spectacular fight for supremacy. In these two weeks the time seemed to be frozen, everyone wants to take advantage of this moment (so the server became the most balanced server in the history of OldSquad) except OneWar, no one wants to go for the 15th reset because it enters the stage, and one can lose advantage, or does not recover the gap, but in the meantime we have a balanced top 100. Right now everyone in the top 100 has 14 resets or is just one step away from it and this is lovely! The balance is "at home" on OldSquad after almost 2 months of play and promises incredible battles for supremacy. Speaking, the  two battles have been fought since then, the first of them was dominated from beginning to the end by Hardcore, they took advantage of the disorganization of opponents at that time (Neutral, Diamond and FORMOZA). 
      While on the Hardcore side we could see the "perfect" organization, the other three guilds were simply MASSACRED, they had chaotic attacks, disorganization, not even a bit of vision or any strategy, at one point the castle looked like a huge spot on which  the Hardcore warriors were quietly leveling, having in the foreground these three superstars: RuSuLeTzZz "The Machine Gun", "The Crusher" mafy and Mu3rTe "The Death Bringer". Time passes slowly, very slowly as if to prolong the agony of the three guilds with fighters who came to the battlefield with "plastic weapons".
      Eventually the fight is over and Hardcore remain invincible after the most unbalanced fight from the beginning of the server until now, It was just an "easy practice" for No1LiveEr's crew, a victory without any emotion. 
      The following week was a busy one in our community, Neutral was in the forefront, disbanding after that shameful defeat, and a new scandal shook the forum... Chukundah, Snook and Venom robbed Hardwell, Zutto and FKinGCunT in revenge after Zutto did the same thing by robbing Snook, an entire drama was unleashed and The Curse that has been hidden so far suddenly hit so hard cause probably forever splitting the warriors from the second guild as power on the server. "The Amazing" Zutto gave up the fight, Trippy too, FcKinGCunT went to Hardcore (this week), Snook and Chukundah's party joined Dynasty, Exillia and few more went in Diamond.
      The week passes quickly, a new guild takes shape under the leadership of Fane, who collected one party from Neutral and FORMOZA's core.  We saw in the past that he is an experienced leader in the fight for supremacy, who, after a break of about a year, returns to lead a guild in the Battle for Supremacy, its name is Dynasty and looks very promising. Diamond is reorganizing the strategy after the last defeat, also receiving some fresh forces from Neutral, and MIDGARD is still looking for a strategy, their alliance with FORMOZA did not seem to work last week, they got only one Lord Box, so this time they will go on their own. Eventually these 3 guilds register at Castle Siege and for the first time we see a guild (Dynasty) registering signs of lord to ban a build, it took 5 weeks to see this "miracle" - a strategy to consider.

      Reporter got a reaction from ROGstrix in [Interview] Mu3rTe   
      This interview is about Mu3rTe, one of the best players in our community and one of the most respected by most of the top players from our community, if you read past interviews you will find his name in the words of many top players interviewed from guilds who have been fighting each other for years. He is at this moment (the moment I started the interview) ranked no 1 on Soul Master reset rankings and Castle Siege Tank ranking, but what amazed me and made me want to take this interview is the fact that this player, on the last Inception, started very late, about 2 months from the start of the server and in about 1 month and a half he reached the 1st place. He is the only player I know who managed this performance, and I also want to mention that when he reached the 1st place, the top players from that data base had not given up playing actively yet.
      Reporter: "Hello, Mu3rTe, and welcome to The News Paper Hall of Fame !
      Mu3rTe:" Hello, Reporter and all other players that are reading this   "
      Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? "
      Mu3rte:"My name is Bogdan, I am 31 years old. I am currently working as a 2nd mate on commercial vessels, hoping for promotion soon. I don't have many hobbies, but I like listening to music and playing DOTA or Mu. So far my addiction to DOTA is over, huh, finally. All that remains is this MU. "
      Reporter:" Regarding this Covid 19 pandemic, did it affect you?"
      Mu3rTe:"I was really thinking it will, but it seems that I was lucky, my family and friends are safe, my arrival home wasn't delayed, so far so good. Still, I am disturbed to see the many people who don't follow minimum precautions. "
      Reporter : "When did you start to play Mu Online? "
      Mu3rTe:"It was so long ago :)) I would estimate 15 years ago, but can't say I played properly until just few years ago. Many long brakes, since I was passionate about DOTA. "
      Reporter : "How did you find OldSquad ?"
      Mu3rte:"Some of my old buddies told me about it, they were playing for 2-3 editions. "
      Reporter:" Can you name them?" 
      Mu3rTe:" I can't remember 100% who, but it could've been either Psyke or Scheau, but once in game I found many familiar names."
      Reporter: "How much time do you spend/day playing mu OldSquad (average)? "
      Mu3rTe:"A lot :)) Roughly 12hrs a day. "
      Reporter:" Where does Mu3rTe nickname come from?" 
      Mu3rTe:"Nothing special, mostly to represent that when I come, all the enemy troops will die   "
      Reporter :"What nicknames did you have in the past?"" 
      Mu3rTe:" Always Mu3rTe in Mu, I have various alts, most of the time Bobolina, b0gdaN."
      Reporter: "Do you have any VIP activated? What types of VIP did you use since the start and why?"
      Mu3rTe:"Currently using Dealer because of the extra entry, if you have resources, 1 extra entry makes a huge difference, otherwise Hunter is better. In the first 2 weeks we had Hunter because lacking of the jewel of chaos. Both VIPs are important if you wanna be in top and to maintain there, the competition is tough, ok, maybe not so hard... "
      Reporter: " How did you and your perma manage to get in top since day one ?  Can you reveal us "the secret"?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I can't say that there is a secret, they just thought about the best strategy, meaning best kill speed and survivability, therefor 3 MGs. They wished I was a MG also but that can't happen :)) Since it's early game, it is obvious that who is more active gets the benefit. More than this, you must have a plan, if you have spare time you could check on test server that was opened early, monster's lvl, monster numbers, some spots have bad spawns, many small details that counts in early. The problem is when you want to stay in top, check where enemies are farming, what items they have, and how lucky you are to get timely spells. You could sell a fire burst with 1k credits.. outrageous but still some people did it   Whatever mechanics you may know, unless you test them, they could be different, since OldSquad is a hard-worked custom server and keeps improving. Other than all this, there must be a good atmosphere within the party, and if possible for them to be as dedicated as you, otherwise it will get stressful, and unhealthy environment. Another thing that propelled us further than any other time, it is because of the pull we made (not possible anymore), players cried about, complained about, ADMIN satisfied them. It was not a special thing to do, just you had to move your mouse, but I guess its easier to look at the screen and complain "
      Reporter:"  What about HoF rankings, how come that you got only 1 trophy so far  (on this data base)? Is it that hard?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I never cared about HoF, they just came one after the other. SM it is not a character that shines early, and it's very item dependent if you wanna have impact in HoF. So far it's hard because of the characters that get extra points, 220 points per reset is huge early, but no worries   "
      Reporter :"Since you are top no. 1 Soul Master player on reset rankings, and you were tank number 1 until last week, can you reveal us a few tips about Soul Master pvp build ? Can you reveal your stats ? It is early yet on this data base, but where should a newbie add ML points after he finishes quest lvl 3? "
      Mu3rTe:"This is to early to tell, all builds have weaknesses. It is not a fixed point for which you should aim, don't have many pvp performances except CC, but I can say that if you don't make lots of hp it is quite pointless. More important than this, you should focus on getting more resets so you can be more versatile without losing too many things early. ML is same based on what is required for your party during exp or during CS. All characters evolves and shines during different stages of the game, it is important to take full advantages of the situation. Myself I don't prefer lots of HP, I am an aggressive type therefore energy and agility. In castle siege it's a different story, because SM is so bad early compared to others, there are not too many options than to go for tanky stats so you can get full advantage of the characters. For now I am no1 at CS tank because ppl were afraid to focus me, not because I was immortal :))))  "
      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 for pvm  ?"
      Mu3rTe:"To reach the top from first time you need a strong and active party. Make all events daily, BC and DS are very important to maintain chaos balance early, always save entry for bonus time. Calculate and evaluate spots frequently, choose your best exp. If you wanna be PVM, you must rely on your party for the first few resets. Build plenty agi and some VIT for survivability, than top up energy. It is quite bad for hunting goldens early game "
      Reporter :"What characters do you think are the best for PvP ? And for PVM ? 
      Mu3rTe:" Overall PvP, considering later stage of the game, vitRF is the one giving me troubles and the most easy to play I could say. There are better chars, yes, BK, SUMM but they require little more skill. PVM It's another story and complex based on your playin style. Overall spot wise eMG is the choice."
      Reporter: "Speaking of permanent party... Can you tell us a few words about the importance of a permanent party on OldSquad, and a short story about how you and your permanent mates got together? Is this the best permanent party you ever had?" 
      Mu3rTe:" Perma party is important if you wanna enjoy the game to the fullest, and here I mean participating to Castle Siege. Without a perma party is is more challenging  to climb the ladder and collecting items specially now when you can only have 2 accounts per pc. It is not impossible if you wanna play alone, sometimes it can be more relaxing. To have a perma party many times can be challenging, unwanted and puerile dramas, stress and being on the edge... so don't forget that this is a game, we play for pleasure not to fuck our brains for crap.
      About my party, I was asked by mafy if I wanna play this edition, so here I am:) they have a bigger history behind, I only know mafy, Redbull and Russu, we played sometimes. I can't say that it's the best party I ever had, but so far it's the most stable, yes, some drama from time to time, but we are still the 5 people from the beginning, that is an achievement so far   "
      Reporter: " You are now a Hardcore member but some "voices" tell me that in past you were a Squadron and a GROM member, is it right ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, I was in Squadron before, but GROM, no, very briefly 1-2 weeks at some point "
      Reporter : "Why did you left those two great guilds? What happened? "
      Mu3rte:" Grom nothing to say about, I was at some point I even forgot the reason, usually when I need to go for work, my char could get in the hand of other people, I left my account few times and some other got it, so maybe was one of those times..  About Squadron, last edition of inception was very imbalanced, agiRF was out of proportion, so I decided I should join the opposition in order to make things little more challenging, nothing hidden behind. "
      Reporter: " Do you think that Hardcore is invincible this data base ? Until now your guild has 4 wins in a row,, who is leading Hardcore during CS? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't believe in concept of "invincibility" , I do believe in team play, active members and organization. As long those are here, everything is possible. Anyhow, the way the server is set-up, you can't win forever, I am sure we will lose at some point and there is no shame in losing, it is important to see how to move on. During CS, all  suggestions are open if we could benefit from them, but in order to not make confusion, it is better if just some people speak. Roles are divided beforehand, and we are adjusting according to situations. Still it's Mu.. it's not some badass strategy game   once the basics are learned, the winners are those who execute better. "
      Reporter :" There are rumors that Diamond helped HARCORE two weeks ago on CS, are they true ? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't know who started rumors about this thing, but I am happy that there is more activity in CS, this way it is more challenging, from my knowledge, nobody from Hardcore asked any1 to do something for us, and I congratulate DIAMOND for doing their best and playing fair and square."
      Reporter:" On the last Inception Data Base, you started 2 months after its start and in about a month you reached top number one ranking, there are rumors that you didn't even have a permanent party when you started playing! How did you manage to get this performance? I guess a lot of people want to hear the full story from beginning to end "
      Mu3rTe:"Well, thanks to the system ADMIN designed, to catch up is so much easy. When all people have resets and almost instakill in DS and BC, even if you start late, build some tanky stats so you won't die and have full benefits from it. When people are 10-15 rr, you can make reset in devil square cause of the bonus exp. It was hard at beginning, you will die on all spots, but if you are active and come back, exp is easy also, when you start later, many party are disbanded so you can fill some places. For me, after 2 or 3 rr I joined Chukundah's party and I was dying on spot many times in karutan2, went bc6 few times got 1 hit, but didn't stop, perseverance and being active helps a lot. Also Gaffney changed his character to BK and he gave me his Sphinx set, it did help a lot, I can't say I was all alone. Later on due to imbalanced guild powers, I joined HARDCORE with mafy, we gathered some players from broken parties, some of them were much higher in reset than me, but exp was going smooth. Once I got some resets, I went full dmg build, and destroyed all events not many contesters in BC DS, some tried but... and this was it.. 2 months playing non stop basically :))"
      Reporter: "What do you think about last Castle Siege? How was the atmosphere in Hardcore? What do you think about Purge reconstruction? What about the evolution of Diamond?" 
      Mu3rTe : "Last CS was in top 10 Castle Sieges that I played, I am happy that more guilds decided to come, the fight for switches was very intense. We had some advantages, Diamond GM and his party was below 300 lvl, but they did a great job. The atmosphere in guild is as good as always, we were excited to play again, we had some missing key persons also, mafy, but we did good. I don't know about Purge, it just seems a different name, same people, maybe they will manage to refresh themselves, I had bigger expectations. About Diamond they look promising steadily improving, each CS having bigger impact, they hold the crown for quite a while and had huge impact on switches, I hope they will maintain integrity and play the way they did so far." 
      Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes I read the News Paper, some articles are very entertaining   but got to admit, the dramas collects more views."
      Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? "
      Mu3rTe:" I do not believe in superstitions, but I do think that your way of thinking can affect your lifestyle. I sometimes I am wondering, how can so big dramas happen, when in fact it was just some crap. Mainly the curse comes from people's mentality. "
      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?"
      Mu3rTe:"From what I notice, other than those 3 you just mentioned, there comes also the real life problems, that affects our mood  and lets say our sensitivity. One more could be that the problem are not addressed in a calmly manner and solutions are very often overlooked. People should see beyond problems, problems appear every day, but we have to pass over. If somehow MU creates problems for your life, better make some changes. "
      Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Fake news seems to be the key to our society, so maybe make more of those :)) "
      Reporter: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you like this data base ?"
      Mu3rTe:"Many changes, many improvements, I guess it should be a 9 "
      Reporter: " What would you change to this server? What do you expect from the following servers?"
      Mu3rTe:"So far many changes satisfied my needs, at the moment all looks good. I don't have expectations, I just take what it is and make best from it. "
      Reporter:" Two guys from your permanent party are members of the council, what do you think about this project? Do you, mafy and Endorphin talk about council often?" 
      Mu3rte:"The project is very good and the reasons behind are on point. We don't speak too much, we just have a laugh from time to time, when some councilors are frustrated when something is wrong just for personal reasons. "
      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? Do you and your party mates donate/donated? " 
      Mu3rTe:" I like it that it keeps improving, and slowly slowly getting to that point as a "play to win". Still, VIP affects a lot, but why I like this server is it that you can farm your credits for VIP quite easy if you are active. Myself, as a player who never donated, I am the proof that you can be top without donating. This edition maybe, my party donated for me at the first week so I wont drag them back   lucky me. From what I know, they only donated first week "
      Reporter: "I have 5 challenges for you, do you accept them? " 
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, go ahead "
      Reporter :"Challenge no 1:  I need the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:" mafy, Makiavelli, no third one   I dont have dislikes, maybe from time to time some personal vendettas. "
      Reporter: " Challenge no 2: Tell us 3 things you like most about our staff team, and 3 things you don't like about them!" 
      Mu3rTe:" I like ADMIN cause he tries to improve this game, Gion and Reporter doing good job, nothing else. I dislike that Gion is always in a hurry, sometimes he doesn't have time to give rewards  "
      Reporter:" Challenge no 3: Tell us 3 things you would improve on our server and top 3 things you like the most" 
      Mu3rTe:"I like the stage system the most, giving a balance sentiment so therefore CS are more enjoyable, various times I played on other servers there was a huge discrepancy. I like the CS system, this way you can enjoy 2 hours rather than 5 ending minutes. I like the automated system for events giving a fair chance for all players. I can't say I would improve many other things, since ADMIN is doing a great job implementing our thoughts and ideas. He comes with great ideas also. "
      Reporter: "Challenge no 4: Due to the fact that you were a member of the most important guilds on this server, call us in order which are the 3 strongest guilds you have been in, with details about each one, of course." 
      Mu3rTe:"Well, I would say that Squadron was the strongest guild overall, accumulating all past editions I played. I played there also, but it was a grim atmosphere, many afk times, but they were gathering people to come play at CS. Hardcore comes second, being a relatively fresh guild, I do like that people are active, hunting and doing events, and you can always find somebody to chat if you want. On third place, might be GROM but they were shady, even resorting to cheats, can't say much otherwise. "
      Reporter:" Challenge no5 :I need you to share with us a "dirty" secret, a shameful and funny incident that happened to you playing MuOldSquad."
      Mu3rTe:"For sure there are many as such, need to jog my memory here   I could say the most funny was, When I went in vacation, my party wanted to surprise me and lvl up my w3 wings to +13 or something, unfortunately, Makiavelli forgot to put talisman... and so I was without wings:)) spent like 1 more month without, trying to find w3 +lk. " 
      Reporter:" Thank you very much for time and patience, I wish you GL on all your plans!"
      Mu3rte:"Without fun there is no sense of playing it ! GL to you, Reporter! "
      This was Mu3rTe's Interview, one of the best players from our community, I am happy to finally do this interview because I wanted to take it since last year ! 
    25. Like
      Reporter got a reaction from mafy in [Interview] Mu3rTe   
      This interview is about Mu3rTe, one of the best players in our community and one of the most respected by most of the top players from our community, if you read past interviews you will find his name in the words of many top players interviewed from guilds who have been fighting each other for years. He is at this moment (the moment I started the interview) ranked no 1 on Soul Master reset rankings and Castle Siege Tank ranking, but what amazed me and made me want to take this interview is the fact that this player, on the last Inception, started very late, about 2 months from the start of the server and in about 1 month and a half he reached the 1st place. He is the only player I know who managed this performance, and I also want to mention that when he reached the 1st place, the top players from that data base had not given up playing actively yet.
      Reporter: "Hello, Mu3rTe, and welcome to The News Paper Hall of Fame !
      Mu3rTe:" Hello, Reporter and all other players that are reading this   "
      Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? "
      Mu3rte:"My name is Bogdan, I am 31 years old. I am currently working as a 2nd mate on commercial vessels, hoping for promotion soon. I don't have many hobbies, but I like listening to music and playing DOTA or Mu. So far my addiction to DOTA is over, huh, finally. All that remains is this MU. "
      Reporter:" Regarding this Covid 19 pandemic, did it affect you?"
      Mu3rTe:"I was really thinking it will, but it seems that I was lucky, my family and friends are safe, my arrival home wasn't delayed, so far so good. Still, I am disturbed to see the many people who don't follow minimum precautions. "
      Reporter : "When did you start to play Mu Online? "
      Mu3rTe:"It was so long ago :)) I would estimate 15 years ago, but can't say I played properly until just few years ago. Many long brakes, since I was passionate about DOTA. "
      Reporter : "How did you find OldSquad ?"
      Mu3rte:"Some of my old buddies told me about it, they were playing for 2-3 editions. "
      Reporter:" Can you name them?" 
      Mu3rTe:" I can't remember 100% who, but it could've been either Psyke or Scheau, but once in game I found many familiar names."
      Reporter: "How much time do you spend/day playing mu OldSquad (average)? "
      Mu3rTe:"A lot :)) Roughly 12hrs a day. "
      Reporter:" Where does Mu3rTe nickname come from?" 
      Mu3rTe:"Nothing special, mostly to represent that when I come, all the enemy troops will die   "
      Reporter :"What nicknames did you have in the past?"" 
      Mu3rTe:" Always Mu3rTe in Mu, I have various alts, most of the time Bobolina, b0gdaN."
      Reporter: "Do you have any VIP activated? What types of VIP did you use since the start and why?"
      Mu3rTe:"Currently using Dealer because of the extra entry, if you have resources, 1 extra entry makes a huge difference, otherwise Hunter is better. In the first 2 weeks we had Hunter because lacking of the jewel of chaos. Both VIPs are important if you wanna be in top and to maintain there, the competition is tough, ok, maybe not so hard... "
      Reporter: " How did you and your perma manage to get in top since day one ?  Can you reveal us "the secret"?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I can't say that there is a secret, they just thought about the best strategy, meaning best kill speed and survivability, therefor 3 MGs. They wished I was a MG also but that can't happen :)) Since it's early game, it is obvious that who is more active gets the benefit. More than this, you must have a plan, if you have spare time you could check on test server that was opened early, monster's lvl, monster numbers, some spots have bad spawns, many small details that counts in early. The problem is when you want to stay in top, check where enemies are farming, what items they have, and how lucky you are to get timely spells. You could sell a fire burst with 1k credits.. outrageous but still some people did it   Whatever mechanics you may know, unless you test them, they could be different, since OldSquad is a hard-worked custom server and keeps improving. Other than all this, there must be a good atmosphere within the party, and if possible for them to be as dedicated as you, otherwise it will get stressful, and unhealthy environment. Another thing that propelled us further than any other time, it is because of the pull we made (not possible anymore), players cried about, complained about, ADMIN satisfied them. It was not a special thing to do, just you had to move your mouse, but I guess its easier to look at the screen and complain "
      Reporter:"  What about HoF rankings, how come that you got only 1 trophy so far  (on this data base)? Is it that hard?  "
      Mu3rTe:"I never cared about HoF, they just came one after the other. SM it is not a character that shines early, and it's very item dependent if you wanna have impact in HoF. So far it's hard because of the characters that get extra points, 220 points per reset is huge early, but no worries   "
      Reporter :"Since you are top no. 1 Soul Master player on reset rankings, and you were tank number 1 until last week, can you reveal us a few tips about Soul Master pvp build ? Can you reveal your stats ? It is early yet on this data base, but where should a newbie add ML points after he finishes quest lvl 3? "
      Mu3rTe:"This is to early to tell, all builds have weaknesses. It is not a fixed point for which you should aim, don't have many pvp performances except CC, but I can say that if you don't make lots of hp it is quite pointless. More important than this, you should focus on getting more resets so you can be more versatile without losing too many things early. ML is same based on what is required for your party during exp or during CS. All characters evolves and shines during different stages of the game, it is important to take full advantages of the situation. Myself I don't prefer lots of HP, I am an aggressive type therefore energy and agility. In castle siege it's a different story, because SM is so bad early compared to others, there are not too many options than to go for tanky stats so you can get full advantage of the characters. For now I am no1 at CS tank because ppl were afraid to focus me, not because I was immortal :))))  "
      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 for pvm  ?"
      Mu3rTe:"To reach the top from first time you need a strong and active party. Make all events daily, BC and DS are very important to maintain chaos balance early, always save entry for bonus time. Calculate and evaluate spots frequently, choose your best exp. If you wanna be PVM, you must rely on your party for the first few resets. Build plenty agi and some VIT for survivability, than top up energy. It is quite bad for hunting goldens early game "
      Reporter :"What characters do you think are the best for PvP ? And for PVM ? 
      Mu3rTe:" Overall PvP, considering later stage of the game, vitRF is the one giving me troubles and the most easy to play I could say. There are better chars, yes, BK, SUMM but they require little more skill. PVM It's another story and complex based on your playin style. Overall spot wise eMG is the choice."
      Reporter: "Speaking of permanent party... Can you tell us a few words about the importance of a permanent party on OldSquad, and a short story about how you and your permanent mates got together? Is this the best permanent party you ever had?" 
      Mu3rTe:" Perma party is important if you wanna enjoy the game to the fullest, and here I mean participating to Castle Siege. Without a perma party is is more challenging  to climb the ladder and collecting items specially now when you can only have 2 accounts per pc. It is not impossible if you wanna play alone, sometimes it can be more relaxing. To have a perma party many times can be challenging, unwanted and puerile dramas, stress and being on the edge... so don't forget that this is a game, we play for pleasure not to fuck our brains for crap.
      About my party, I was asked by mafy if I wanna play this edition, so here I am:) they have a bigger history behind, I only know mafy, Redbull and Russu, we played sometimes. I can't say that it's the best party I ever had, but so far it's the most stable, yes, some drama from time to time, but we are still the 5 people from the beginning, that is an achievement so far   "
      Reporter: " You are now a Hardcore member but some "voices" tell me that in past you were a Squadron and a GROM member, is it right ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes, I was in Squadron before, but GROM, no, very briefly 1-2 weeks at some point "
      Reporter : "Why did you left those two great guilds? What happened? "
      Mu3rte:" Grom nothing to say about, I was at some point I even forgot the reason, usually when I need to go for work, my char could get in the hand of other people, I left my account few times and some other got it, so maybe was one of those times..  About Squadron, last edition of inception was very imbalanced, agiRF was out of proportion, so I decided I should join the opposition in order to make things little more challenging, nothing hidden behind. "
      Reporter: " Do you think that Hardcore is invincible this data base ? Until now your guild has 4 wins in a row,, who is leading Hardcore during CS? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't believe in concept of "invincibility" , I do believe in team play, active members and organization. As long those are here, everything is possible. Anyhow, the way the server is set-up, you can't win forever, I am sure we will lose at some point and there is no shame in losing, it is important to see how to move on. During CS, all  suggestions are open if we could benefit from them, but in order to not make confusion, it is better if just some people speak. Roles are divided beforehand, and we are adjusting according to situations. Still it's Mu.. it's not some badass strategy game   once the basics are learned, the winners are those who execute better. "
      Reporter :" There are rumors that Diamond helped HARCORE two weeks ago on CS, are they true ? "
      Mu3rTe:"I don't know who started rumors about this thing, but I am happy that there is more activity in CS, this way it is more challenging, from my knowledge, nobody from Hardcore asked any1 to do something for us, and I congratulate DIAMOND for doing their best and playing fair and square."
      Reporter:" On the last Inception Data Base, you started 2 months after its start and in about a month you reached top number one ranking, there are rumors that you didn't even have a permanent party when you started playing! How did you manage to get this performance? I guess a lot of people want to hear the full story from beginning to end "
      Mu3rTe:"Well, thanks to the system ADMIN designed, to catch up is so much easy. When all people have resets and almost instakill in DS and BC, even if you start late, build some tanky stats so you won't die and have full benefits from it. When people are 10-15 rr, you can make reset in devil square cause of the bonus exp. It was hard at beginning, you will die on all spots, but if you are active and come back, exp is easy also, when you start later, many party are disbanded so you can fill some places. For me, after 2 or 3 rr I joined Chukundah's party and I was dying on spot many times in karutan2, went bc6 few times got 1 hit, but didn't stop, perseverance and being active helps a lot. Also Gaffney changed his character to BK and he gave me his Sphinx set, it did help a lot, I can't say I was all alone. Later on due to imbalanced guild powers, I joined HARDCORE with mafy, we gathered some players from broken parties, some of them were much higher in reset than me, but exp was going smooth. Once I got some resets, I went full dmg build, and destroyed all events not many contesters in BC DS, some tried but... and this was it.. 2 months playing non stop basically :))"
      Reporter: "What do you think about last Castle Siege? How was the atmosphere in Hardcore? What do you think about Purge reconstruction? What about the evolution of Diamond?" 
      Mu3rTe : "Last CS was in top 10 Castle Sieges that I played, I am happy that more guilds decided to come, the fight for switches was very intense. We had some advantages, Diamond GM and his party was below 300 lvl, but they did a great job. The atmosphere in guild is as good as always, we were excited to play again, we had some missing key persons also, mafy, but we did good. I don't know about Purge, it just seems a different name, same people, maybe they will manage to refresh themselves, I had bigger expectations. About Diamond they look promising steadily improving, each CS having bigger impact, they hold the crown for quite a while and had huge impact on switches, I hope they will maintain integrity and play the way they did so far." 
      Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? "
      Mu3rTe:"Yes I read the News Paper, some articles are very entertaining   but got to admit, the dramas collects more views."
      Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? "
      Mu3rTe:" I do not believe in superstitions, but I do think that your way of thinking can affect your lifestyle. I sometimes I am wondering, how can so big dramas happen, when in fact it was just some crap. Mainly the curse comes from people's mentality. "
      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?"
      Mu3rTe:"From what I notice, other than those 3 you just mentioned, there comes also the real life problems, that affects our mood  and lets say our sensitivity. One more could be that the problem are not addressed in a calmly manner and solutions are very often overlooked. People should see beyond problems, problems appear every day, but we have to pass over. If somehow MU creates problems for your life, better make some changes. "
      Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?"
