I was a good player in Age 3, got 2400 in rating and was one of the best brazilians players. BUT.. stopped in 2007, when I decided to play chess ! And back to AoC in middle of 2008.
Fuzer: Oh! That’s a great rate! Did you play to qualify to WCG?

RiuT: Well, my brother helped me alot in the beginning (CH_Apocalipse , Istchuk , [MIB]Oakley are some of his nicks)
Fuzer: Could you describe your playstyle?
RiuT: Well as most people know, my style is most agressive, I like to take advantage with my micro and velocity.

RiuT: I changed a lot of things.. I use space for TC, tab for idle vill.. (Barracks, Archery, Stable in this sequence: Q-A-S ) and some other things.

Fuzer: This will be a hot interview 11
Fuzer: Let`s continue and let these things for some other talk!
Fuzer: What do you think about Drush+FC+CA's ? Will be a counter to this strategy someday?
RiuT: Its a great tactic, but I'm sure there will be a counter to this strategy.
Fuzer: Has you tried to make a counter build order?
RiuT: Yes, sure, but it depends of the map, there's map that u can wall and make a stronger eco than enemy.. or maybe u can fwd and defend with towers etc.
Fuzer: The most funny strategy with any civ in any map, in your opinion?
RiuT: Persians in Arabia, when you create a Town Center in enemy front 11. That's amazing!
About MotH & BCC3
Fuzer: Before "Master of the Huns" tournament, only a few people knew about your skills. Now you are marked as a 2.4k player. Did you train hard for this tournament? How can you explain this quick ascent in AoC scene?
RiuT:: I was always a good Arabia player, and when I entered this tournament I always thought that I couldn't win Tim in ROUND 3, but I won, and this gave me a great confidence. I traveled in the end of the year and stopped my practice in the middle of the tournament.. But when I came back, I practiced a lot and hard.
Fuzer: Did you think from the beginning you will reach so far at this tournament?
RiuT: Not even close, I always thought that I could be in the 2nd Stage, cuz i knew that I play nice Arabia, but that`s all.
Fuzer: Who helped you to train in the Finals?
RiuT: Dogão, wrath and Cyclops.
Fuzer: Did you analyze DauT's recs? Tell us a little about your training.
RiuT: Yes, I watched them, but I guess I didn't practice enough to win the tourney. I'm sure I could play better than that.
Fuzer: Most people didnt expect 0-4 as result in the Finals. Can you explain what happened?
RiuT: I was nervous in the final, I didn't play at my best. It was my first final and I was playing agains't DauT, and nothing was working like in the practice games. But it happens , now I feel more confident for everything
Fuzer: OMG, that means now we will see a stronger RiuT in BCC3?
RiuT: I wouldn't say that 1111, but a mature RiuT for sure.
Fuzer: You earned 1000$ USD from the finals. What do your parents think about this? What will you do with your money?
RiuT: They are very proud of me 11 and I would probably pay to make course preparatory for College.
Fuzer: Nice! What do you want to study?
RiuT: Mechanical Engineering
Fuzer: Good luck with that! If you could set up the next tournament, what "Master of ..." would you choose?
RiuT: Master of Celts would be amazing 11 , Celts war give us a good recs !
Fuzer: Nice one! Congratulations for your qualification to the League Stage in BCC3. You beat poZ_Tammy twice before you got into the League Stage (3-0 and 4-1). Did you expect to beat Ding with those results?
RiuT: Not really, in the first time I beated him, I played really carefully, but when I won, I had alot of confidence in the rematch games.
Fuzer: Who will be your most difficult opponents in the League Stage?
RiuT: Every player in the League Stage is great. I would say that they all will be really hard to win.
Fuzer: What’s your best map in the map-pool of BCC3? Have you trained hard?
RiuT: Actually I'm not playing so much, but I will. I don't know really what is my best map.. maybe Arabia Huns or Migration. I don't know.
Fuzer: Give us your prediction for the first 3 places in BCC3.
RiuT: 1º Daut 2º Tim 3º Cain.
Fuzer: I think you missed yourself in that list
RiuT: 11111, nah.
Fuzer: Next Interview will be to [Viper]Jordan. Give me a question to ask him.
RiuT: Jordan, why you walk the whole map with army just to kill my vills ? :@
Fuzer: Some last word to your fans?
RiuT: big KISS for all who like my game style.
RiuT: and u
RiuT: did u enjoyed the interview?
Fuzer: Omg, I really enjoyed the interview :$
Fuzer: I have to confess, I`m RiuT`s fan. That's why you are the first interviewee in AoC Zone.
