01 What's your gaming nickname and is there any particular reason why you chose it?

My gaming nickname is Tren_UK. This basically the start of my surname, with a _UK stuck on the end. This came from the fact that when i signed up for Hotmail, I wanted to have a UK in there, and the only way of adding a space inbetween words was by using an underscore, so I used it, and it became my nickname on everything!
02 Do you use a custom character config and, if so, how is it setup?
Strength : 4
Resistance : 3
Speed : 4
Focus : 1
03 What weapons do you include in your arsenal?
01 : Ishmael's ROCK knife (get my mod to use it with Caleb!!)
02 : Assault Rifle
03 : Sawed-Off Shotgun
04 : Flare Pistol
05 : Sniper Rifle
06 : Napalm Cannon
07 : Tesla Cannon
08 : Howitzer
09 : Life Leech
10 : Vulcan Cannon
04 Do you prefer bloodbath, standard teamplay or CTF?
I prefer Bloodbath, because you can kill anyone, however you please!
05 What maps are you best on?
Ones with large open areas which have good sniping points. I also like Area 15 and the Cradle to grave map as thats the first blood map i ever played on (along with all the other Blood fans out there!)
06 Which weapon do you think induces the most lag?
The Vulcan cannon. Monolith shuld tone this weapon down for MP so that the lag is cut down.
07 What is the funniest kill you've performed or received?
It was on Cradle to Grave on Blood 1. I had run out of all ammo and only had my pitching fork remaining. Thankfully I managed to get into the furnace to grab the Life Seedm unfortunately some guy was waiting outside with a Tommy Gun. So i tried to pitch him, i completely missed, ended up running past him into the fire extniguisher, which i pitched (D'OH) and blew myself up along with him. I was on the floor laughing with hysterics, and to finish it off I pressed the F1 key to make Caleb say "I love the smell of Napalm in the morning". A classic double kill!!
08 What's your standard way of carrying out a humiliation death?
Get up next to the person, press the taunt button, then pump there body with lead.
09 What games do you play online apart from Blood 2?
Quake II, Half-Life and QuakeWorld.
10 What is your all-time favourite weapon from any game?
The Blood I Flare Pistol. The running flaming bodies just made it for me!
11 What is your all-time favourite map from any game?
Has to be the Phantom Express or Dark Carnival from Blood I. Although The Edge on Quake II is anexcellent map also.
12 What do you think the future holds for Blood 2?
Blood II has the potential to be huge. At the moment the Blood II community still has a bit of hope in themselves that everything will work out, and the MP will get sorted in the next few patches, like what has happened with Shogo. However, if Monolith leave it too long, people are going to become interested in other shooters - such as Q3Arena, Kingpin and Unreal Tournament
13 What tips do you have to share with your fellow bloodbathers?
Make sure you have the sniper rifle on your list, it is an invaluable tool, and it works great at short distance too!!
14 How can people contact you so they may try and damage your bloodbathing prowess?
Through ICQ: UIN# 11667069 or e-mail
15 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)
I only have one thing to say, its excellent however there's something huge being missed - Jojo! "I want Jojo, I wanmt Jojo, JOJO JOJO JOJOOOOOOOOOooo" Ahem, thank you and goodnight.
Closing Comment : Ta Tren. Jojo? Sorry I think he died a long time ago back in Blood I. You see the length of this interview ppl? I expect all my interviews to be this long, ok? Don't get me wrong, but I start to worry when I can read 15 answers to 15 questions in 15 seconds... - Infern0
