GML - _DauT_ Interview

Postby ZeroEmpires » Sun Sep 23, 2012 6:52 pm

ZeroEmpires: Hi DauT!

_DauT_: Hello.

ZeroEmpires: Thanks for agreeing to do an interview.

_DauT_: No Problem.

ZeroEmpires: So how have you been? I hope you are recovering from your injury well.

_DauT_: Yes I am recovering much faster than expected, though I am still not really able to play AoC my best yet.

ZeroEmpires: It's unfortunate that it has caused you to take some time out, do you think it will affect your performance much in the upcoming league?

_DauT_: Yes it will, especially in the first rounds. I will be able to play my best in a month or two when I at least get some feeling back in my fingers.

ZeroEmpires: Even with your injury are you confident that you will do well in the league? Where do you think you could finish?

_DauT_: I am always very confident and its annoying that for the first time in my life i can't aim for 1st place, but then again this tournament will take two months and more so who knows. If it was all played right now I would finish last, it really depends on how fast I recover of how fast I get used to playing with no sense in my left hand.

ZeroEmpires: Fortunately we have a few weeks before it really gets going then! Your first games will be against Tim; how do you feel about this?

_DauT_: I have a lot of experience against him and know his style very well so i am sure the games will go to late stages, unfortunately this is where I can't perform right now so i don't feel very confident!
I will maybe use my best maps in the first few rounds to try to secure at least some points until i heal and can perform better.

ZeroEmpires: It's good to hear that you have a game plan ;) Who do you think is going to be the biggest challenge to defeat in this tournament?

_DauT_: TheViper, he has got almost the same style as me but with more care of his army ( no i will not say better 11)

ZeroEmpires: Haha I will take your word on that! I interviewd Chris earlier in the week and he said there is a lot of rivalry between you guys, you will be facing him in the last round of the tournament; how do you think that will go?

_DauT_: The same as our bo21 :D

ZeroEmpires: So what do you think to the tournament itself, the layout and the format etc?

_DauT_: I like it a lot, the format is very good and I really like that it's only 2 games per set. Lately every tournament ends up turning into an all day AoC marathon.
I miss the times when tourneys were single elimination best of 3 until final best of 5, they were simple and short and caused a lot of suprises.

ZeroEmpires: What do you think to the map pool, and letting players choose when they want to play a particular map?

_DauT_: They are all good standard AoC maps, and because you pretty much have to win your home map I am sure we will see plenty of new strategies for those maps. Especially because you can't use the same map twice so you will have to think of something for each player and choose your opponents weakest map then practice some old tested start to perfection or chose some not so much played map and find some unique start.
It will be intresting :)

ZeroEmpires: Speaking of maps, what do you think will be your strongest map this tournament?

_DauT_: Well Regicide Fortress was always my strongest map but now that I wont be able to play late game as I used to I really dont know. We will have to see about that in two weeks then the tourney actually starts ;) Right now I only have some ideas about the maps I will use vs every player but must test them :)

ZeroEmpires: Could you predict the final standings of the tournament at the end, positions 1-8?

_DauT_:
TheViper
JorDan_23
Tim
Me
_IamChris
Goodboy
FeAge
dogao

ZeroEmpires: Finally, if we were to hold the League again in the future and expand it would you be interested in joining again? Also, what ideas would you have to improve the league further?

_DauT_: Ofcourse it will be really fun to have a league like this always present in AoC, it will show aoc players rankings much better than voobly rating and will motivate players a lot more.
Maybe adding one more "lower" league for next season, like in SC2 GSL they have Code A and Code S and at the end of each season the best of Code A move to Code S and worst from Code S to Code A.

ZeroEmpires: One last thing before we go, you will be taking part in the SY Cup if I am correct?

_DauT_: Yes I will.

ZeroEmpires: What do you think to this tournament, and are you confident that TyRanT can perform well?

_DauT_: Although this time I will be the weak link in the team there are Kkab/JorDan_23/TheViper to back me up, and they are in good shape, so i am confident that we will continue our winning streak in team game tourneys.

ZeroEmpires: Awesome, well thanks for your time I appreciate that you have done the interview today :D

_DauT_: No Problem, thank you too for making this tourney.

ZeroEmpires: Good luck in the GML!

Thank you so much if you could analyze my games and tell me what I should do to get better :).
