    Interview with Octobrev

    who are you playing with currently?
    <+octobrev> spartans but im constantly entertaining offers and willing to give buttons!

    how is your age going?
    <+octobrev> theres definitely some room for improvement lol
    <+octobrev> i suppose its better than i anticipated though
    <+octobrev> there were just a few perfectly avoidable errors that bogged us down
    <+octobrev> like declaring FS .-.

    want to elaborate on that?
    what made you do it? what lead to it?
    why was it an error?
    <+octobrev> they waved us a couple days in but we figured it was just a ghetto warring kd based on their early moves
    <+octobrev> as soon as we sorted out that it was FS withdraw discussion started
    <+octobrev> because aint nobody got time for all that
    <+octobrev> it would had taken a week to turn it around
    <+octobrev> which was way more time then we were willing to spend on it

    how long have you been playing?
    <+octobrev> i think i first logged in when i was 15!
    <+octobrev> didnt really start playing though until the mid age 30s
    <+octobrev> when i found irc <3
    <+octobrev> and all the goodness that comes with it

    who was your mentor?
    <+octobrev> my dad Realest of course! he took me in when i was a complete badkid and oriented me in the right direction.
    <+octobrev> phiwha/themango, dirty, elit were all pretty important as well
    <+octobrev> though they came along a little bit later
    <+octobrev> and the troll chief syntico!

    who besides octobrev do you consider the best player currently in game?
    <+octobrev> its so hard to know whos playing with all the chat apps these days
    <+octobrev> the community has scattered
    <+octobrev> i think Dirty is still semi-actively playing in CR though
    <+octobrev> but heavily overshadowed by the lovely-king zauper
    <+octobrev> secondary pick would have to be Lennox of Playboys fame over in emeriti this round
    <+octobrev> i really wanted him for myself
    <+octobrev> ill try again the next time we diplo emeriti.

    what do you consider your highest achievement?
    <+octobrev> my cold, hard 13 crowns!
    <+octobrev> im kind of obligated to support the crown count as per my contract with the utopian industry
    <+octobrev> man i hope godly doesnt fire me

    what is something you still want to achieve?
    <+octobrev> im still looking for a cool feature after selling my stock in CR before their b2b2b
    <+octobrev> either a b2b2b of my own or a triple crown would be wonderful on the shelf
    <+octobrev> or if i could just quit that would be great too!

    what keeps you playing utopia?
    <+octobrev> the people of course!
    <+octobrev> i hate them all so so much.
    <+octobrev> gotta make them quit!

    if you could change one thing in utopia, what would it be?
    <+octobrev> id make me a moderator so i can clean up the town we love!
    <+octobrev> theres so much cheating and foul play
    <+octobrev> it really breaks my heart.
    <+octobrev> i suppose working in some of the roleplay aspects again might be nice
    <+octobrev> new players used to be confronted with a textual description of the races and personalities
    <+octobrev> now they just get slapped in the face with the age-change numbers
    <+octobrev> roleplayers always made up the lions share of the targets

    what is the best piece of advice you can give a new player starting out?
    <+octobrev> networking is central! much more important than buildings or strategy.

    anything else you would like readers to know about you?
    <+octobrev> yaaaaaasss! find me on irc if you wanna trade your land for gold \/
    <+octobrev> ill beat any competitors price.

    Thank you octobrev as always a pleasure talking to you.
    Hope some of you Utopians enjoy this short interview with one of Utopia's most famous , some may say infamous, inhabitants.

    thank you. the idea was that if people get to know a little about other players it may bring the community closer together. Octo was kind enough to be the guinea pig thanks again. Panthira and me came up with the idea of reviving uto interviews one night.

    This is good. Well, anything that octo touches turns to gold anyway, right?

    Right. Look at it like the guy in war with the flamethrower; it's the most fun and things can go wrong.

    seems people are a little nervous currently and hesitant to give interviews
