how long have you been playing?
I’ve been playing since May 2017. I’m an oldtimer in here lol.
what’s your current role in your alliance?
I’m the leader of Chef’s Kitchen. I also am responsible for recruiting for us. And I am the mascotte for both my own alliance as well as Chef’s Pantry, our sister alliance.
which hero are you currently levelling and how will you use them?
I am currently leveling Freya. I was fortunate enough to pull her AND Telluria. Where Telluria’s function is pretty clear, I have no clue how I’m going to use Freya. But that’s part of the fun for me, experimenting with heroes, find out their strengths and weaknesses and figure out in what situations they will be useful.
Which is your favourite hero in your roster, and why?
That’s a tough question to be honest. It has definitely changed over the years and often I had multiple favorite heroes. If I had to pick… one that’s always been at the top of my list is Ares. His versatility is unmatched in the game and I think he’s still one of the best in the game to this day.
Do you have a particular memory of a great victory, a tragic defeat or a moment of madness?
Too many memories. Call it cliche, but for me it’s all about the community. The friends that I’ve made and the moments I shared with them is what motivates me the most and what I hold dearest.
If I had to pick a personal, gameplay related moment, it’s winning 2 consecutive challenge events on Epic. Especially the 2nd win, because I pulled it off with minimal resources compared to the month before.
Which Season 1 hero would you most recommend to a new player?
Rigard. Season 1 5* will always stay relevant thanks to costumes and emblems. But Rigard is probably the only S1 4* that I still use very regularly (and I do not have his costume). He’s beefy enough to keep up with the meta and one can not have too many cleansers.
What can you see out of your window right now?
Not much. I live in a pretty boring neighborhood.
If @petri and you were on a road trip, where would you be going and what snacks would you bring?
Man, I liked the original question better, so I’m gonna pretend it’s a road trip to my restaurant ;). And if it would be with Petri, I’d probably make something Finnish. Not to impress, but I like to try out new stuff and I’ve never tried cooking Scandinavian dishes. Petri would have to make the sacrifice of being my test subject.
If you could make two changes to the game, one realistic and one less so, what would they be?
I’ve been thinking about this question for a while… there’s a lot that could and/or should be changed in my opinion. From small QoL updates to complete redo’s of major features. Let me keep it light and say this;
Realistically: an auto-autofarm function. Kinda like the way loot tickets work, but instead of instant loot, it actually plays the levels.
Less realistically: 1k gems total rewarded in all of PoV and the ability to buy the pass with gems instead of directly with money. A lot of games use this system in their “Battlepasses” and I think that it works really well. This motivates the f2p and c2p to buy the Valor Pass because they would only have to buy it once and earn it back by finishing PoV and use the gems to buy the next one.
If I gave you $1000 to spend frivolously , what would you buy?
A PC and a camera. I love streaming E&P and hanging out with the community on YouTube, but I’ve had way to many issues with my internet and my equipment. A recently got an upgrade, but ultimately I would want a desktop for it. And I’d stream other games too, I have been playing a ton of Call of Duty: Warzone recently and it’s an amazing game to stream, very entertaining.
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?
We have lifted the required damage on Titans to relief people from stressing over it. And we’re completely open to talk about what’s going on around us and the worries people have. We find comfort in one another and do everything we can to help ease the overall anxiety and insecurity that’s currently among us with this terrible situation. Covid has recently hit my own family and even though I haven’t talked about it much, whenever I tell anyone, I get a lot of support from people in or outside of the alliance. It’s times like this that show how great the E&P community is!
