verGe.Rainman: Phreak of Nature - Part IForeword by blaze
It seems only appropriate for an interview of one of the most prolific American Warcraft III players to have their very first interview up on our website. Being a staff member here for quite some time, Rainman, better known as Phreak, has quite a history with us. Starting off as an audio commentator for WC3Addicts.com, Phreak came to us in April of 2004 and began his legendary slew of audios in a fashion never before seen: he did it with little to no knowledge of the game, whatsoever.
In my eyes, Phreak only ever joined us because his skills were so under par that he felt his position as an audio commentator would help him establish himself in the community and get him some much needed practise. Little did he know what he would be getting himself into. After several strong beatings by the likes of Mr. Cygnus, Cecil, and of course the much dreaded PowerPush™ from Vaulander, Phreak had almost had enough. He had dropped out of school, picked up on drugs, and starting speaking in tongues that no one would understand. We caught him one day in a dark alley yelling "ROFLMAO KEEKEE GOSUAR" at some pigeons.
It was from that point on that we, the staff of WCReplays, knew something had to be done. So, to boost his spirit, we had some of his rivals (namely Mr. Cygnus) drop a bunch of games to Phreak. This was, of course, the worst decision ever on our part. He became cocky, so much so that he would actually claim himself as the greatest Warcraft III player to ever live. Of course, with all of this getting to his head, Phreak decided to leave us and pursue a career on his own. It was then that he was picked up by verGe Gaming (most likely out of pity) and began what has turned out to be one of the greatest Cinderalla stories that ever was.
But in all seriousness, we all love Phreak and have appreciated what he has done for us, and will never forget it. It was a forum member of ours by the name of 13ang13ang had decided that it was finally time for Phreak, now using the alias of Rainman, to get featured on our website in the only way that he knew possible - via an audio interview. And so here you have it, the first portion of a two part interview with the legend that is....Rainman.
