People of the forum, I present, @Math4lyfe
How long have you been playing?
I hit two years February 1st. And I’ve been a part of the Crew family since May 2018… so I’m getting close to my two year anni with them as well.
what’s your current role in your alliance?
Officially… leader… although I have an amazing team that makes my job easy. Off the record, I’d say my role is more motivator, listener, moderator, comedienne, editor… etc.
which hero are you currently levelling and how will you use them?
Telluria!! Finally got her at the end of this month’s S3 portal. I squealed a bit from excitement. I’ve been in dire need of a green healer. She fills the position beautifully. I’m also working on Mireweave and Brynhild… I think they’ll be fun to play with in Raid tournaments.
Which Season 1 hero would you most recommend to a new player?
3* - Belith for her heal and and dispel. Excited to see what her costume will be like. Brienne is a close second, mainly due to her costume. I have two maxed and enjoy using both on the same mono green team.
4* - Rigard… He’s always been a solid choice, a hero that I would encourage beginning players to level immediately. His costume made him a game charger and many players have multiple copies of him for their war teams.
5* - Tough one… Lianna hits like a tank, but Kingston stole some of her thunder. Viv perhaps… although she is slow and squishy, her cleanse is invaluable for those who mono… and her costume… drool. I can only hope I get it soon! My titan scores will definitely improve.
What can you see out of your window right now?
The beginning of a beautiful day! The sun is shining. Temp is a cozy 64 degrees (that’s Fahrenheit, y’all). Windows are open and I’m enjoying the sounds of nature… and the occasional car that drives by.
If @petri was coming to dinner, what would you cook?
Bahahahaha… those that know me are laughing at this question. I don’t cook. So take-out of some kind… Thai maybe?
If you could make two changes to the game, one realistic and one less so, what would they be?
Realistic change… as my roster continues to grow, a search feature would be nice.
Unrealistic change… an undo button… just for one turn… maybe put a cost on using it… like all heroes lose 200 hp or something… hmm, maybe that not so unrealistic.
If I gave you $1000 to spend frivolously, what would you buy?
I have a hard time spending money frivolously… I’m sure some would go to gems… I’d probably buy this programmable blender that makes awesome smoothies… and maybe a plane ticket somewhere.
this is a really strange and challenging time for all of us across the whole player base and all our communities around the world. How has your alliance been supporting each other or those around them?
This is definitely a strange and challenging time for us all… luckily, I feel like our alliance already has a strong sense of family so there wasn’t a need for a lot of change. We chat daily, both in game and in our line groups. Most of us have been playing together for quite a while… and therefore know more about each other than just what heroes fill our rosters. We have celebrated birthdays, proposals, marriages, and births. We have supported each other through family deaths, job loss, and sickness. While this pandemic has been devastating in many ways, I do think it has brought us closer. We may live thousands of miles apart from one another, but we are all struggling through the same thing… virtually… together. We have lost a few players due to real life demands… members in the healthcare industry that are working countless hours, helping those in need. I reach out to them regularly, kind of like a virtual wellness check.
There are some great support threads here on the forum. I’ll take a minute to give a shout-out to @voidstrike and @anc1ent1 for all of their positive words. It’s comforting to know that there are multiple platforms available to share concerns and such wonderful people who are willing to lend an ear whenever needed.
