For this upcoming month, the newsletter would like to announce that our interviewee will be

Higurashi

and this is your chance to ask (him/her) a question for all the world to hear!

To do so you have no time remaining. Thanks in advance!

Please do not ask your questions here! All the questions will be made public and attributed at the time of release. To maintain secrecy until then, send the NLW a personal message instead, titled "Question for Higurashi".

Please note that Newsletter writers have the right to slightly edit your question (in terms of grammar style etc., not the actual context), ignore it if they feel it is inappropriate or if they get too many questions (then they need to select the best ones).

Don't hesitate, but send me questions! (Please title your message "Question for Higurashi").

If you would prefer your question/s to remain anonymous, please specify this in your message. (However, it may be best to not ask questions you could be ashamed of in the first place. ;) )


Well? Why haven't you started typing yet? Don't hesitate, ask today!

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 :>

Greetings, readers (faithful/occasional/new/etc.) of the Featured Community Member thread!

For the month of July, the newsletter would like to announce that our interviewee will be decided ahead of time.

In the interests of getting the community more involved in featuring a community member, the newsletter is requesting nominations from the community!

Please feel free to PM the NLW team with the name of one member who is at least a Jr. Member and has been registered at least one year, with the PM title "Nomination for Featured Community Member".

Additionally, anyone who was last interviewed more than two years ago (see the quote in this post) is eligible while those interviewed more recently are not.

We will be accepting nominations for a few days (you have been late to this post), then having open polls for a few more, intending to leave approximately a week or so for questions and a week for the interviewee to respond.

Don't delay, nominate today!
