|Interview with Phyze|
Hello Phyze, to most of us you're Isak, the clanleader of brainless and one of the most known Swedish realism players. Tell us something about yourself that we don't know already!
Greetings. Many may not know this, but I used to be a good MoH:AA player! If one encountered brainless before the infestation that was Call Of Duty 4, there was always a risk of getting sniped. Now my useless internet connection and lack of decent teammates *ba-dum-tss* has decreased those odds significantly. It has absolutely nothing to do with ME whatsoever.
It would seem that you have become more active during the past weeks. Is the NationsCup the sole reason for this or are there any other factors at work?
The reason that I came back was not NC at all, I simply decided to kill some time when my CoD4 team were offline. Started off playing with the Israelis, making sure they got back on track from the hole they were currently in and made some really good friends. After that I asked bassie if he wanted to form a MoH:AA team with a seriousity that couldn't be found in other teams. He agreed and we formed fragnatic together with mighty Prozac. When I heard about the NC I quit CoD4, after which I have been even more active.
From what I've seen, players like timmeh, saik and leek are back aswell. How did you convince them to play this NationsCup and how hard was it to do so?
It was a pain in the ass, leek / saik are playing Dota2 alot and ANttila is a huge League of Legends pro. Tim came by his free will as he joined fragnatic a few weeks before we knew about the NC in the first place. At first I thought they would only play NC matches, but as it turns out they all want to be quite active - so we play with brainless on a daily basis.
Quite a few people see this NationsCup as evidence of some kind of MoH:AA Renaissance as it were (higher activity and the return of retired players). What initiatives do you believe the supervisors should launch in order to make sure things stay this way?
This is a tough question with a simple answer: Reinstate Renan and remove Bridge. AAAWW YEAAAH! Nah but I think more cups are in order, cups always bring out teams to practice atleast a tiny bit - it also makes people form teams in order to play said cup. Right now we have too many people "freelancing" when they could instead make their own successful team. We should also always investigate in another anti-cheat, and more confident rules regarding game-settings. Too many get away with 16-bit+shadows (*cough*cool*cough*) and nofog etc.
Would another EuroCup be an option? If so, which clans would deserve a place in it?
Have me doing your job are you?! Well I reckon the french easily could summon two good teams ( Knights, Musketeers, n0name or such), the hungarian one ( Simian), I see Poland fielding two teams, sG and one more. I believe Marcel could shape a good random EC team with WoeNSeL / bubbles / whatnot. Portugal has capacity for two good teams as well ( name and a stRuKts-ish team). Finlands' konna cartelli obviously, should they want to. Apart from those: fragnatic (or whatever bassie decides to play for), brainless, fr4gz0n3 / prjkt, some kind of third NL team I reckon (mindcontrollers-ish). I also believe the Israelis deserve to have a team in. Other contestants; graphix (if they don't play with fragzone/prjkt, I know nothing of the UK players' loyalty), Team ReturnzEr0, instant karma.
I would hope to see even more old teams arrive - should an EuroCup be announced. vengeance perhaps? casino/erwin?
It's a recurring question, but at the end of this cup, only 3 nations will walk away with a .gif; which will those be?
I wish you the best of luck against Israel tonight! If you have anything to say (like the poem on your captain application f.e.), feel free to do it here!
Thank you sir. I have nothing to add other than the classic "keep up the good work".
