Bloodite Interview: Deicide
Real name : Jordy M. Steinberg
01 What's your gaming nickname and is there any particular reason why you chose it?
It's now Deicide, partially because I like the definition, and partially because I like the band. Deicide is a noun, defined as 'one who kills god or deities' or as a verb 'to kill deities'02 Do you use a custom character config and, if so, how is it setup?
Strength : 303 What weapons do you include in your arsenal?
01 : Knife04 Do you prefer bloodbath, standard teamplay or CTF?
Any one of the above, they're all fun hehe05 What maps are you best on?
Uh.. rooftops is a good one, as long as people arent going insane with the proximities.... ugh.06 Which weapon do you think induces the most lag?
Minigun. No contest.07 What is the funniest kill you've performed or received?
Uhm, it would probably be yesterday actually, I was playing with Da Imp and some guy I don't know on Da Imp's new co-op/BB level (it has monsters in it too) and I went into wonky vision... Da imp made the mistake of hesitating and came at me with the knife.... And at point blank range I shot him, and myself with napalm. He survived, but I killed myself and went down screaming "YOULL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE!"....uh.... I guess you had to be there.08 What's your standard way of carrying out a humiliation death?
***09 What games do you play online apart from Blood 2?
Quake 3 mostly now... but Quake 2, especially Action Quake 2, I used to play postal, Quake, even Duke 3d and Descent on kali....10 What is your all-time favourite weapon from any game?
Whoa..... hm... the molotovs from Postal.11 What is your all-time favourite map from any game?
Hm... that's a toughie... Id go with probably Stadium from Duke 3d.... I guess...12 What do you think the future holds for Blood 2?
In a word: MODs.13 What tips do you have to share with your fellow bloodbathers?
I'm not about to give away my secrets! hehe14 How can people contact you so they may try and damage your bloodbathing prowess?
ICQ: 703668615 What do you think about PlanetBlood and is there anything else you would like to see on it? (this is also the place where you can plug your sites)
Ive always been a fan of the Crypt, its bookmarked for me. Heh. Just keep up the god work. Oh, and make sure you link the blood 2 tournament at http://www.planetblood.com/tournament/ ;)16 Why did you choose to start a Blood II Tournament?
Basically I chose to do that a LONG time ago... like right when Blood 2 came out, I thought it would be cool to be closely involved with the community. I was right. Originally it was planned to be hosted by the Bloodshack, but it was having a LOT of troubles. This was way back in DECEMBER. Eventually, after talking to Mike E for a bit, I decided to go with planet blood. First time I asked they turned me down. A few months passed, Undertaker joined the team and I asked again, this time filling the e-mail with nothing but ass kissing, LITERALLY. It must've given someone a good laugh, cause they gave me and Undertaker space.17 Have you been pleased with your response?
Yes and no. For the size of the community, yes, but if blood 2 had lived up to it's potential, then it would have been a whole lot better ;)18 Do you think that the lag problems with the game make the tournament slightly less enjoyable?
Probably, though I've found one on one listen server games to be not that bad for lag..... when Dell was still around we used to do that from time to time..... It's hard to say what the game would be like WITHOUT lag, it would be absolutely amazing, but as it is now, lag is part of B2 bloodbath. ;(
Closing Comment : Thanks for that interview, I'll get the links sorted after my exams :) - Infern0
