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.



CURRENTLY FEATURED MEMBER:

Higurashi
Spoiler for Hidden:

Higurashi



The Lurking Admin
Proud Aetherial Entity
Admired Veteran

Favorite music genre?
Well, it used to be psytrance but now I mostly listen to retrowave, and mostly hardcore at that. Vulta, GosT, some VolkorX, Toxic Avenger, Danger, a bit of Dance with the Dead, etc.

If you could change one thing about the game, big or small, what would it be?
I'd remake the game in Unity and find an active developer who zanz would be willing to hand it to. This would kick things off with the release of 1.4 and traffic would skyrocket.

What's the story behind your username?
Higurashi is a type of cicada in Japan whose name means duskbringer. I had a tough upbringing and my dark side is the reason I came out alive. As such it's always going to be a part of me even as my life has become much more positive, and I embrace that. It gives me a lot of strength.

What is your view of the past and the present, the differences between those times, and the passing of time on the forum?
Elements has always been a small community, and therefore a close one. Once your generation has left as they do in all communities eventually, the ones who stay do so because they want to give new members the same experience they had. With no development activity was always going to decline, but that doesn't take any joy from the process.

Any last wishes for the game regarding the creeping flashpocalypse?
See question #2.

You don't seem to join events or chat anymore. Do you feel you don't have the necessary time to give it your all and don't want to do anything halfassed, are you still afraid something like your last war might happen again (even though what you were accused of isn't even that usefull anymore, plenty of decks are being posted right at the deadline, much of the communication happens outside the forum and vaults are emaillocked), just not interested anymore or something else entirely?
Indeed, I've never been a half-asser. I go from one focus to another and the last few years it's been all about my career. If I could relive the glory days of events and War with the old guard I would, but my generation is not coming back and the competition won't be that strong or enthusiastic again until Elements is revived with new development.

Why is Aether so OP?
One element had to be the strongest. It only makes sense that the very fabric of the universe would be that element. Power is control and influence. If you think about it, what other force could possibly access that much control?

If you had one pet of choice from EtG, what would it be?
A Phase Dragon could teach me the secrets of immortality, but there's no way to bend the will of such a transcendent being; they would be more of a mentor. Perhaps a Phoenix could do the same in a different way.

Where do you see yourself after the flashpocalypse? The game seems to mean a lot for both old and new members, maybe joining something that one of our admins would could encourage us to move along.
If OpenEtG can develop to become an equal to Elements graphically and structurally, I might get into that. If not, I don't have a great need for a new game to get serious with. I'll probably keep playing Hearthstone casually for a long time though.

Who are your favorite masters of each element if you can only pick masters elected at Trials #7 or later?
deuce, Jenkar, Torb, rob, elk, Cal, inthisroom, Ginyu, will, Jen-i, 10 men, JonathanCrazyJ. Most for competence, some for seniority and some for innovation.


What's your favorite forum activity here? Any other forums you also visit?
Forums were a big part of my free time a few years ago, but now I mostly hang on Twitch and game if I have any time to spare. I still enjoy doing administrative stuff on here though.

If you were alone for a week, how would you occupy yourself if you could not interact with anybody? You could do "singleplayer" things on the internet and you could only watch pre-recorded movies on TV. You would not be able to meet or contact any living person, but you would know that this only lasts for a week.
I sometimes take several days off from socializing, so a week wouldn't be much different. Currently I'm playing Hollow Knight, Dark Souls 2 and GTA 5 by myself. Working out and spending time in nature sucks up a lot of time. I also need to continue reading The Colour of Magic.

Any last words for the interview?
Keep up the good work :>

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

It's a good read, thanks for your answers, Higs!

Just out of curiosity, what determines who you interview, SG?

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.
