Cub Reporter AngelicaSynn, here with this months Garage Interview
This month, we're speaking with OperationRedwings. She's a top 10 finisher in a recent Weekly Tournament in the Experience category.
• Hi, how are you? Can you give us your username and the servers where you are playing?
Good Afternoon, My Username is Operationredwings, and I am currently playing on the US3 server
• Do you want to talk a little bit about yourself, about the life when you are not working as a hero?
When I am not playing the game I am reading, writing and talking with friends. I graduated college with a B.S., A.S. and a medical assistant cert.
• When did you start to play Hero Zero?
I started playing Hero Zero in the middle of September 2014. I began on US2, but everyone was way ahead of me in levels that once US3 opened up I started a clean slate, and have been playing ever since
• How did you start playing Hero Zero? Through friends? Publicity?
I had a great friend that I met through a different game, they soon told me about Hero Zero, and at first I was not sure it was a game for me, but I soon became addicted, as a lot of us do.
• Do you still remember your first days as a “noob” in Hero Zero?
Yes, I remember my first few days, it was incredible the time it took to handle all of the energy and training, and then to come to a server where people knew one another from different servers, you felt a little lost, but you make friends in the game, and form bonds. Though I do remember as a “noob” I made lots of mistakes and I got chewed out by one I did once.
• What do you like the most in the game?
I enjoy the tourney a lot, it gives you something to do when you are not focused on your energy or training, I enjoy the chats in my team, they are epic to say the least. I have made a lot of bonds with people in this game. The competition gives you a thrill, and you will not get bored easily.
• Do you have particular goals to achieve in the game?
My main goal at this point is to get to Level 300, which is close. Also hitting 100k in honor would be nice also. i would also say a goal of mine is to always do my best in the game.
• In your opinion, what was your greatest achievement in HZ so far?
My greatest achievement in the game so far.
that is a tough one. I would have to say that would be everything up to this point. I mean, I never expected to be in a top team, let alone its leader. I was astounded that someone would mentor me in the game, and show me with patience how to play, thus giving me the momentum needed to continue.
• Hero Zero creates friendships. Have you created any kind of friendship with another player? Who and how?
Of course I made bonds with people in the game, how could you not. Windwalker is amongst the first I bonded with, he was there for me when I needed advice..(which was a lot). But there are a lot of others that I have come to enjoy chatting with.
(The Valorous Vagrants Team)
Texasred, kirkthejerk, ledge64, Howl, Ari and windwalker all have been there for a chat and you can count on them to leave you smiling.
• Which are your tips for beginners?
-Don’t throw donuts at a villain, he is selfish and will just eat them for himself.
-Take your time and do not rush
-Do not listen to rumors before you know the facts
-Try your best and don’t let anyone tell you that you can't
• Name up to three players next to the following descriptions:
Best players (exclusively based on their ability as players, not their personality etc.):
Players you respect the most:
Windwalker, texasred, grub
Favorite forum members (if you are following the forum):
AngelicaSynn, grub, littleone
(blushing slightly, with a grin)
• How does it feel to be a leader of one of the best teams in the entire server? Is it an easy task?
Being leader of a top team is rough sometimes, as you have to make difficult decisions, but its worth it to see that your team stands behind you and approves those decisions. Letting people go for inactivity is hard, as you have bonded with them, but them you bring someone new into the team and they blow your mind.
I feel that a leader is only as strong as his/her team, and even though they are the leader and set the parameters, it’s the members in the team that come together to make the team one worth supporting and helping, without the members then the leader would be nothing
I enjoy being a leader in a top team, as I also enjoy all my members
• What is the most strange, funny or in your opinion the best name you have named a pet (and why?!) ?
The funniest thing I think I named my SK would be Alfalfa after the Little Rascals, he is a cat Sidekick... I also named a owl (hOOters) and a robot (waddles) for the fun of it
• Have you ever won a weekly tournament? In what category? Was it worth the effort?
I have won in the tournament several times in honor, in the beginning I did it just to see how strong I was, but now I do it because it is fun to see how much honor I can gain.
I have also did the xp one but top 5 I believe...
• You've played against a villain? What was your best position to qualify?
Yes I have played against the villain on many occasions, it gets frustrating though sitting there for 3 hours and then the villain flees... lol
I have been first a few times doing the villain, but it is hardly necessary to be first, and a lot of people throw donuts now to get 1st.
If I may, when I first began this server, I was wanting to compete so much that I won against a villain by throwing donuts, I think that would have been the most (duh) moment because I got so many emails asking me if I was crazy..lol
• What's your favorite sidekick ?
My favorite Sidekick would have to be Watson the cat (named Shadow)
• What is your favorite sidekick's capacity/skill ?
My favorite Sidekick’s skills are headbutt, cockered-up and two are better then 1. And he has all the attributes.
• What is the first thing are you doing when you connect on the game ? Why ?
When I first log on I check to see if I have any mail, and then head to begin my energy/training. I do that first because I know once I enter the team chat I will be sidetracked with all the fun.
we can get into some awesome fun in there and the energy lay forgotten and you wonder how it got so late and you still have 3 refreshes to do in energy.
Thank you for sharing your insights into the game, OperationRedwings...
