The idea of this project is to interview active and well-known community members to learn more about them.  Each member will be asked the ultimate questions on Life, the Elements, and everything.  Answers will hopefully be entertaining, educational, or something you can use against these people in PvP.

Interviews are not posted in any particular order.  We will start with seasoned veterans and work our way down to newer members but post counts don't matter that much; what matters more is who we bump into in Chat or the forums.  Council will also try to add some members who are in the spotlight during that particular moment, for example being assigned a new forum job or title, or winning a PvP event.

Great drinking buddy
Friend to all who chat with him

How did you find the EtG game? How did you find the forums?

I was on Kongregate because another game site in which i used to play was down.

What is the origin behind your forum name?

The first iteration of this name was ji-jo. However, kongregate disallowed - in my username, so I changed it for 412. When i made my name for etg, i thought i had to use the same one as the kong one.

What is your favorite element? Where does your favoritism and devotion to this element stem from?

My favorite element is darkness. It is the element that I feel I cannot ever get bored with. I enjoy everything in it, and when in doubt, always go back to it.

What do you like to do in your free time when you are not playing EtG or on the forum?

Right now, with my new job, my weeks got a lot busier than before. I like chess, LoL, karaoke, board games, etc

JOOOEEEYYY??? (mathman101)

iiis thaaat aaa quuueeestiiiooon???

Some of us know you are big into playing chess, where did you learn to play chess? What would you recommend to beginner chess players?

I learned to play chess in highschool, but that was way before i started being competitive. Someone got me to join the local club, and that's where i really started learning. Whatwould I recommend to beginners? Exactly that, find a local chess club, and find someone there who's willing to help you improve

How did you and mathman meet? (InsignificantWeeaboo)

That's actualy a difficult question. And Honestly? I don't remember. But I've always enjoyed mathman's presence as someone that I feel is always positive and always brings joy around him.

You are also known for streaming speedrun games. Are there any types of speedruns you really enjoy doing? What kinds of games do you struggle with doing speedruns for?

I'm still new to speedrunning. I like speedrunning randos, which basically are randomized versions of actual games, for the simple reason that it breaks the usual habit of always having to do the exact same movement over and over again. Other than that, I enjoy speedrunning M.C. Kids because it is a game that I absolutely loved as a kid. Since I do not have much experience, I couldn't say which games i struggle doing speedrunning for, though i can say ths : It's always a lot tougher if you don,t enjoy the game.

With the holidays coming up, what is something that you would like as a gift? What kinds of gifts would you give to people around the forum?

For my speedrunning, I'd enjoy a flash cart for my NES and a capture card, to allow streaming from console rather on emulator. What kind of gift would i give to people around the forum? Probably online multiplayer games to enjoy together.

You recently became a WM, how have you been enjoying this position thus far? Have you been able to utilize your previous experience as a PvPEM to help you in any way with your new duties?

There hasn't been enough done to really say about how much i enjoy the position to be honest.

Any last words or comments for the community?

My tick tacs, my back pack.My Zippo lighter, my charge pack.My sun glasses, my hairspray.My headphones (Them Beats by Dre).My notebook, my GoPro.My vape pen, my crossbow.My toothpick, my pocketknife.Oh f--k, I forgot my wife


Thanks for your time.

(answers by mathman101)


What was the reasoning you decided to become a WM? Are you disappointed that you are unable to play in War?

Math asked me to. If it means that war goes on, then i'll do it.
I felt that with the low amount of people applying there was a chance war might not happen if no one was willing to host it. I was hoping that by risking not playing one war to help it go on, others would see the same opportunity and maybe do something similar in the future. If everyone sacrificed playing in one war to host, they could play in many more, and we could have many great wars in the future.

When looking at the previous war, how do you decide what to change and what to keep?

We went over what many of the major issues were within the last wars and thought about what to focus and how to fix them.

Can you take us through a usual day/week as a WM behind the scenes?

three messages and silence for a week until someone says something.
So far it has mostly been planning and preparation work. During an average week; someone has an idea and posts it, then the others comment on it both positive and negative critiques, afterwards we either agree to add it into war with the current rules sets or remove it. Then everything starts again with a new idea. Once we get into the main body of the event, I'm sure we will be busy each week answering participants questions, making brackets each round, updating and checking results as they come in, and continually creating and balancing ECs and super ECs.

What happens in your secret sections? Any exciting details you can share with everyone?

nothing goes on, and yes, there are details.

What was the hardest thing to fix/devise for War? (InsignificantWeeaboo)

market
The hardest thing I find about war is trying to make everyone happy. Everyone has different ideas about what they would like to see done for war, and there are many different things that WMs could attempt. Unfortunately we cannot try everything at once, so I kinda play the rule of thumb to try and make the least amount of people unhappy.

How confident are you that this war will go well? How many drama spats do you think will occur this war?

no. at least 12

Would you be willing to share an EC or super EC that you have prepared for this war?

college week of welcome
I have always been a fan of the risk-reward style ECs, and I hope to make several this war. Sometimes you have to be willing to take a few risks to gain the best rewards and make victory happen. This is not the exact card we will be using, but it will give an idea for what we may be planning to do with it.
Spoiler for Hidden:


Any last words or comments?

%22I don't want any engraving, just leave the metal plate blank, no engraving."
Don't forget to thank the WMs for all the hard work they do, they are real people also who are sacrificing their time and effort to do their best for you. show them some extra lovin' instead of causing drama and complaints.  ;)

Thank you for your time

I like how you mentioned the War 3 match vs Tiko Higs! I remember spectating that match and it was a very tense and even matchup. Losing it was a hard blow!

Somehow you've really represented :aether as an element and Fractix-enthousiasm for me. I think the interview reflects that very well. I also like how you consistently stay true to a philosophy and stick to a certain theme throughout various forum events and chat discussions.

Nice job on the interview overall SG, was fun to read.

Thanks Japp. I always try to be sincere, and I do think a philosophy, or vision, is the most important part of being Master. It's something higher to strive for, which reflects on the entire element, all its fans, and your actual life as well.

I'm also glad you gave me an excuse to post here so I can follow this thread easier. Very much looking forward to seeing more interviews. The best part is that it's barely any work for SG. :P

Having a staff title and being well-known aren't mutually inclusive. BluePriest (and forgive me for using you as an example) seems well known by the general community because of his high post count in general and participation in off-topic sections, but he doesn't have a staff title.

Yes, but "active and well-known" is rather ambiguous. Is she taking people with the highest post count? Those who have participated in the most events? Been staff members the longest? Etc, etc.

Cool....I remember I was in a community that had interviews like this, people would ask things to that person for a week and the one interviewed  would choose another one. The way SG did seems to be much better though.

Looking forward for the next one!

Another great idea from SG.  I can not express how good I think this is.  It will be very interesting to learn more about the most known and popular members, as well as less known but still valuable members.  Just putting this out there, I would love to be one of the people interviewed.
