    Interview: Reviving the Community with Back2Warcraft

    Hey guys! I'm working in a special article in Brazil about 15th anniversary of Warcraft 3. With that, I had the chance to interview our lovely Germany.pngJannes "Neo" Jambalaya, one of the faces from Back2Warcraft broadcasts.

    I'll post here our original conversation in English. Hope you guys enjoy his insights about the Warcraft 3 community today!

    Interview with Lawliet: Full House

    Back in December

    Lawliet, do you feel confident for WCA?

    No, no... I'm noob!

    When I've met South Korea.pngelfLawliet for the first time, it was at WCA 2016 in December. Although he qualified from the most difficult region, he was not very confident. He had been eliminated early from GCS by Serbia.pngelfRudan and did not perform very well overall since his qualification in May.

    Korea had only 2 seats at WCA and they took 1st and 2nd place! Lawliet ended being Vice-World Champion, eliminating China.pnghumTH000 or Ukraine.pngelfFoggy quite easily in the process.

    Now that Lawliet seems to be a noob again with many unexpected losses, I felt it was a good time for an interview. And to discuss a little bit about his famous roomates : South Korea.pnghumSok, South Korea.pnghumChaemiko and South Korea.pngorcSo.in.

    His skill, his goals, his life in the A1 house... let's talk about it all!

    FoCuS - "I was not focused recently"

    Ah Ugri made a bad pun!

    Well think again! I went to ask for some more details on what he meant while being interviewed by China.pngTolkien, and those were his exact words.

    A small interview of a player so likable that for once, I am translating an article the other way!

    Tolkien is an admin of Ifeng Cups and Taidu Cup. He is also a writer on RN (replays.net).

    Questions are not mine, only narration in italic is my own.

    Behind the scenes: Ugrilainen – The Warcraft Globetrotter

    This interview is a special one, because the tide has turned. The interviewer becomes interviewee. Today's interviewer is nobody else than me myself - ena1337. I am an occasional WarCraft 3 fun streamer playing orcOrc competitively in 1on1, 2on2 and FFA and support/organize leagues and cups. I am asking Ugrilainen 14 questions about himself, his connection to WC3 and his opinions about the current state and future developments. Everyone who is involved in the scene should know Ugrilainen. He is well-known for supporting and organizing Warcraft 3 events, tournaments, showmatches and leagues for many years.

    Warcraft in Exile E02: China with Passion

    It's rare for me to have the occasion to talk about Warcraft in French. The French scene has been decimated once SC2 came out and did not recover. 

    Nowadays only two can have decent results internationally : France.pnghumAnima (will face Serbia.pngelfRudan for GCS Europe Qualifiers Saturday) and France.pngelfPassion. . 

    We continue our series "Warcraft in Exile" with the Frenchman who decided to open up a little. He could not give us a recent/good quality picture for a nice banner, but gave us many insights!

    Interview was made in English, no need to over-complicate the publication with translation work right?

    Xun at GCS Asia Qualifiers : one last step

     About to go on my Sunday lunchbreak...

    Ugri, you need to talk to China.pngundXun! There is so much controversy!

    My friend Chatwin is really active on Chinese forums and Xun's performance seemed to have totally overshadowed anything else that happened : China.pngrndSini beating South Korea.pngorcFocus and South Korea.pngelfLawliet?

    South Korea.pngelfMoon and South Korea.pngelfRemind coming back to GCS?

    Xun unexpectedly reached the final 6 of the competition. He was one finger away to punch his ticket for Shanghai. What happened then?

    I just checked with him if he had just been interviewed. No? Alright, let's just send some questions before eating!

    Behind the scenes E01: Russia with Hundredkg

    Behind the scenes ~ Russia

    Ivan Glazkin

    an original warcraft3.info series

    David and I came up with an idea : basically, working together! We needed more than that of course, something original. What about those women and men that work behind the scene to provide the fans with content? Those that matter and we hardly know or talk about?

    "Behind the scenes" will try to put some light on their activity, views and feelings about the scene in general. We will jump in between continents in what we hope will be an interesting and successful journey!

    First step : destination Moscow / Russia with Russia.pnghundredkg, manager of vk group "welovewarcraft3" and doing way more than just that.

    Warcraft in Exile E01: Party time with atheistP

    I've met with many Warcraft players by now and the vast majority of them, if not all of them, stroke me as introvert people. Pretty smart ones too.

    I had this discussion during our WCA breakfast in Yinchuan with Foggy I think... there was this table of CS:GO players talking loud with fancy clothes not far from us. We could basically tell which table was in it for which game depending on its behavior!

    AtheistP, I ran into him during GCS in december, the first day. He came to pay a visit at the studio, he had just arrived from Serbia and would work in China from now on. 

    He came with a friend, laughed and suggested party plans... got my interest right away!
