ReminD Me, A Story

by Kage







When it comes to Warcraft 3, there are certain players who have an illustrious lure to them, especially in the way they play the game. Thus, this has given them a rather large following, but many times these players have been very busy with their strict schedules and one cannot really know a lot about them or their thoughts on the game. In these next series of articles, I attempt to give you the view of the game through the eyes of the player.

My guest for this evening is a player whose nickname is instantly recognized among fans of both Warcraft 3 and specifically of the Night Elf Race. He sports the name “ReminD” and is a proud member of one the most feared clans in Warcraft, the World Elite. All of 19 years of age and living in Gu-ri city, near Seoul where he was born. This bespectacled lad has won many hearts and impressed a large amount of the audience with his consistent and smart play of the game.

It is my pleasure to introduce Kim Sung Sik to you.

How did it all begin?

If you have read interviews of other players, you all know that their love for gaming and rise to fame didn’t start with just Warcraft 3. Almost all of them played some sort of Real Time Strategy (RTS) before taking on Warcraft and most of the time it is Blizzard’s preceding title that gained fame around the world, a game called StarCraft.

“I also began with StarCraft, but was not serious, only interesting. Everyone was playing that game and then I tried it, too. I played Zerg in it. Then my friends and everyone shifted to Warcraft 3, so I also made the change. I started with my nick as New_War in RoC and then that nick got stolen, so I made ReminD. To ReminD myself of the game, to constantly remember the purpose and rethink everything, hence ReminD.”




Remind on Progaming

ReminD emphatically agrees that he is a pro-gamer. And the choice that he had made about 365 days ago is one he still stands committed to. While this may be a common norm amongst outsiders, pro-gaming in Korea is still not big in Korea save for StarCraft. “There are so many gosus in Korea but I feel there are not enough leagues for war3". Strange as it may seem, the nation that embraced StarCraft and has more people playing that game in Korea than outside it, seems to be a little drawn back on taking Warcraft 3 with the same vigour. "There seems to be a lack of interest in Warcraft 3 and StarCraft is much more popular there", says ReminD. ”Added to this, there is severe competition among players with many top talents all fighting for very limited seats.”

Consider 70 of the top players of the game for 15 spots and in a game that has a slight luck element to it, it can become very frustrating at times to get through. So what would be a solution that comes naturally? To shift out of the country to seek better prospects such as what Zacard (another pro-gamer) did.

"Sure I’d like to live in another country, but my work in Korea is not done. I still have many matches to play here so I won't be moving out now".

There was a rumour that as part of World Elite training, ReminD and his team mate,
WE.IGE.Check were planning to move to China. "It is very hard to live in China for a long time for me..so it might be later not now. I have not decided, but maybe in future ^^".

Working as a pro-gamer is not a cup of tea, as most people are generally misinformed. While talking to ReminD, he has the opinion that the pay is good, but the work is extremely tense. Because a strict regime requires him to be on top as competition to enter the clan is great. WE itself has set a very broad target and intends on being the best clan in the world. This directly translates to a lot of expectations from each member and sometimes one cannot always predict sure victory even in a clan as prestigious as WE.

ReminD says, "It is hard and sometimes frustrating, not all maps and matchups are balanced. So in the game, you cannot always win, there are times when you have bad luck and you are not mentally focused with a lot of playing. So it is quite hard."

ACON 5

Many thought that ReminD would take the gold in this. Many even went as far to claim that this competition was totally based on who, out of the 3 players, would win: ReminD, Sky or Deadman. ReminD seemed to be cruising towards this belief, but suddenly his clan mate WE.IGE.Sky put a short stop to all of that. What really happened in those games?

I didn’t prepare a proper strategy and Sky’s strategy surprised me, I was always going Demon Hunter/Panda but that wasn’t very helpful. He had prepared very well and his strong push was so tough to play then.” Considering that it went 4:0, which shocked a lot of players, ReminD is now well prepared and has a couple of strategies to counter it.


ACON 5, the 2 Finalists.


Practice Regime


When he started this game, ShowTime, Dayfly and many others inspired him to do his best. He looked up to these players as idols and practiced day in and day out to reach their level. ReminD, who uses the philosophy practice makes perfect, believes that nothing can be gained without practice. How did he go about practicing to get better at the game? "I laddered a lot". The common mantra between many players, ReminD advises anyone new to the game to ladder because you get an exposure to many different strategies.

If one views ReminDs profile, you'll see that he has over 89 percent with not just one but all races. So what was the secret behind that? To gain a better understanding of the game, one needs to know his enemies well, and what better way is it than to place yourself in the enemies shoes?


ReminD during his MWL Match

ReminD played a lot of games to get a feel of the race and settle on its micro by learning the hotkeys and costs of the units as well as settling down on a comfortable grouping order. He often met many players on ladder whom he had requested for custom games and constantly worked on a loss by seeing what else he could have done. Watching replays of pro-players helped him immensely, too. He watches replays of all races and not just that pertaining to his primary one, the Night Elf.

WE.IGE.Soju

When one talks about ReminD, one can’t help but mention WE.IGE.Soju somewhere along the line. So how special is Soju in the making of ReminD?
Well, Soju is my teacher and I am very close to him. Right back when I was a total noob in RoC, he had the best stats on ladder and helped me evolve Night Elf play. He is a genius, but he doesn't spend time on the game. I learned war3 from his playing, watching him play. It took a long time to become good at war3, I learned over many, many mistakes, watching and analysing how the game is played. But I always wanted to win, willed to beat the best players. I am also very lucky in matches so it helped." And thus in Soju did he see a worthy ally as was amply shown in the 2v2 Battle.net Championship where they reached the finals. He has dibbles and dabbles with his second race Orc and one can clearly see his proficiency even with that race in the devastating 2v2’s with his clan mate WE.IGE.Soju.

Ever since he started the game he began with Night Elf and it’s not really hard to see why, seeing they portray some of the best looking units. But ReminD believed that what you should begin with is what you should stick with and thus hasn't looked back. However, he has been tempted to change to Orc many times because Undead gives him a difficult challenge.

Elf Imba surely?

If you have ever faced an Elf player and lost, you can blame it on imbalance and rest assured a community of players will join you. ReminD, who has played a lot of the other races, doesn’t feel so. It’s more about changing your attitude and strategy to suit the needs. “All Orc players who think Talons are imba and shit, should really see Grubby’s replays and his playing style to adapt. At least it's not as hard as Human vs Undead!”

Wait a second, Orc vs Elf is not imbalanced? And Human vs Undead is? “There is no imbalance, you should understand. It is only the player who makes the imbalance in a race. His thinking and timing is what makes race imbalance.” Well ok, but you did talk about imbalance in the game and now I am curious to know about the matchups and their relative strengths.

A lot is to be fixed really. Some matchups are not perfect at all. In my opinion, it is the following.

NE == HU
HU > OR
OR > UD
UD > NE
NE > OR

“It is a little on the edge but not imbalance, that is important to see. Little advantage for each race but only Undead is pure imba!”. What are the changes he suggests then for racial balance ?
“No good UD player can be really beaten without much micro and perfect play. Please fix cold tower delay, an Undead's main base is so imba ^^. Many problems against undead, Undead heroes too could use fixing. They seem to be very good together. Other races seem ok. It is not the race, but the player that is imba always!”


Achieving and Saving

ReminD is a wise lad who sees a lot into the future. While most gamers his age earn the money they receive on movies, girls, or snazzy clothes, he saves most of it for later use. He doesn't believe in wasting money that is earned through hard work and therefore thinks that it should be used wisely. Many wondered what he had won during the Bnet Season Finals where he currently holds the record for winning it twice in a row!

“I got $9,000 and a computer, too ^^.” Great stuff considering that he almost dominated the competition first time around and the second time against a tough Undead player in FuRy. However, Season 3 he fell a little short on his target. What happened in that? He had faced Farseer who had beat him considering that Orc is at a slight disadvantage in that matchup. “Well, I can’t blame anything, I just played stupid and was out of focus, nothing more.” Oh well, probably the next season will hail better tidings. He believes that he wasn’t very smart this time around and the thought of playing on one of the other ladders would have almost guaranteed him a place in the finals. “I didn’t think of it this time, I feel I was not smart, but maybe next time.”

His manager Zax, is all praise for him.
    "ReminD is a genius player, always giving us a surprise. Juvenility is his advantage and also his disadvantage, he still needs to improve his skill on mentality, but his skill is top class".

And what about his parents? “Well initially, they didn’t support and thought different. But now after seeing me play, they support me a lot”. ReminD has one sister currently lives in China and a year older than him, who supports of his gaming, too.


Remind with his sister at the beach



Final Thoughts and GG, GL, HF Dude!

ReminD has always been a mannered player and answers fans as much as possible. He doesn't ignore anyone, but one must also not abuse that friendliness. He tries to answer most whispers to him, this however doesn’t mean that I am in any way warranting the “go ahead whisper him” idea. He has often got insults and abuses too from guys and he finds it amusing. He believes that his fan collection is large and happy, but he considers it lucky, yet again.

"It is a big honour to have a fan club and I thank all my fans who support me. I also promise to bring a lot of success this year in war3 and dedicate it to them".



Note: ReminD has mentioned that he will give a replay pack to the interview, once the MIL League is over, so keep watching this space for that replay pack!

  1. Kage = Noob, ReminD = Pro

    =D

  2. Great job Kage:)

  3. Remind owns. Looking forward to the rep pack. :)))

  4. he's like uber pro

  5. ReMinD == Spirit_Moon II. :D

  6. I can't believe he can really say mass dott is not imbalanced. That one part completely threw everything off and made me not like him. What shameful lying and refusal to see truth.

  7. i want too see the replays

  8. I disagree that the player makes the imbalance.Well it is true in the start of the strat's invention by gosus, but once it becomes popular and it can be used by anyone that simple, and lesser players win better ones with less effort... man it is imba.Not unbeatable but gives an instant advantage so that the other player keeps running in order to reach his opponent.

  9. hes saying ud owns elf harder than elf owns orc. :O. Bias? ^^

  10. I remember watching him fight off a close-spawn HU tower rush on Turtle Rock and just being awestruck at his micro. Sooo much shit going on at the same time. ReminD can be really fun to watch

  11. Great interview, loved the style u did it in. And ReminD best elf !! 3 him

  12. Very nice i enjoyed reading it. =]

  13. ofcourse a nightelf player isnt going to admit his own races imbalanced... minus phreak :X, but yeah when every pther player is interveiwed nightelf always comes up. not hard to figure out that one

  14. I think what ReminD is trying to say is that there's a difference between "imba" and "a slight edge".

  15. his my idol since season 1. i played TFT since season 1 and he motivated me to use elf. simply a legend. remind is GOD

  16. Always remind

  17. My favorite player interview! great interview gogo ReMinD!!!

  18. really nice interview

  19. gogo remind

  20. He's not really saying NE is not imbal, what he is saying is that alot of it comes down to the player making it imbal. Such as skill and very importantly timming. Remember, his intereview is translated and therefore, he might not express himself as well but if u re-read it, that is what he is saying.

  21. great interview kage :) keep up the gd work!

  22. awesome interview

  23. really strange thing is that he referred to grubby on countering mass talons and everyone is aware of grubby's attitude towards talons...

  24. nice interview

  25. cool interview.

  26. all you bitches can do is whine about imba, none of you will jsut get innovative and try some new shit or anything

  27. =D hes left handed (in that first picture u can see) GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LEFTIES

  28. "all you bitches can do is whine about imba, none of you will jsut get innovative and try some new shit or anything" coming from a player who relies on massing 1 unit is laughable. why dont you nightelf players try something innovative instead of the imba strat. and it IS imba because theres no unit counter to dotts yet. hh's demos etc dont work against any decent user.

  29. okay. i'll wath. aiaiaiaiaiaiaght. BEEEEEEEEERRRR OWNS!!

  30. That was a pretty bad interview. And I'm saying that in all honesty. I didn't learn much

  31. remind is full of double standards, first he saying thiers no imbalance yet he is complaining bitterly abought Undead heros and imba.. rofl at the elf... hes very baised with his race and his so call claim "thier is no imbal is pretty much a white lie, go loose to ur nex 30 undead players mr. remind, go say its all the player".

  32. Dude, in my opnion, ReMinD is the best, i'm his fan ! A brazilian fan !!! :-)

  33. Remind is one of my favorite players, if not my favorite while he doesn't play my race,(orc) I have great respect for him; he has very good manner and always a friendly attitude, HE also shares my religion : )

  34. damn another remind interview

  35. Yea! gogo remind! my fav. player ^_^

  36. GOOGOOGOG remind !!

  37. Left-handed pride.

  38. OMG OMG Remind! he's one of the nicest gosus i've ever met lol he even let me play with him and i was just a lvl 19 noob then lol

  39. That is exactly how i think of imalance, and im not NE.

  40. Truely awesome :)

  41. Yeah good interview. Wil be waiting for the replaypack.

  42. Remind is one of my fav players, ty for makin an interview on him. gj kage. Can't wait until the replay pack =D

  43. i find it interesting that he can maintain such a higher percentage whilst playing solo games, generally in kalimdor u find that most players are 60% approximately, thats quite an achievement.

  44. Remind has always been my favorite player back in the days, but idk i think its between him and spiritmoon now

  45. i like remind but 20 yrs old!?!?!?!? he looks like hes still goin through puberty

  46. he also complains about ppl saying NE are imbalance then IN THE NEXT DAMN SENTENCE says nearly every aspect of UD is imbalanced cant get more hypocritical than that

  47. He's joking about UD being Imbalanced. He has mentioned clearly the Racial matchups and which one is stronger, his hardest is vs ud hence uses that term. He believes that its the player, not the race that is to blame. But as a joke added in that "Undead is pure imba"

  48. He said ud vs human is more imbalanced than elf vs orc.. not ud vs elf

  49. I think Remind is quite right with his comment "a player makes a strat imba - not the strat itself" - you can see it - moon using mass dots - owning always - the top and the bottom. Yeah, is it imbalanced? No, Spirit_Moon makes dot imbalanced since nobody can resist it when it's made by him. But if a player like me uses dots however the top and better players will fall me down, certainly they will. and yeah, remind talked about "general imbalances" between races. However I totally agree with him UD NE - UD has much bigger unit choises to do than Night Elf not to talk about their abusive heroes.

  50. he's a hypocrite. (typical for night elves). hypocrisy one - he constantly says "there is no imba" then whines about imba and the game needing to be fixed etc. he won't admit the most imba match up in the history of the game (ne v orc) then insists on the imba of ud vs ne (which is not as imbalanced as he makes out, and until recently when panda etc was nerfed, many believed NE was imba vs ud).

  51. Good interview, I really enjoyed reading this :)

  52. oh and hypocrisy two: saying that orc players must be "innovative" and try new strats and different combinations of units - when night elf gleefully and thoughtlessly MASSES A SINGLE UNIT and summons. on a side not - being left handed does gain him SOME redemption :)

  53. wow, he's pretty biased. yea nerf undead heroes when you have mana burn? nerf freaking dryads that crap wins games with like 10 gold per minute budget.

  54. Read Kages comment....

  55. Nice interview very detailed with nice pics

  56. i think it looks more like remind is sojus teacher :D well nevermind, both are awesome

  57. I love you ReMinD :)

  58. Great interview,the best i've seen so far...Before half an year i could swear that ReMinD was the best player in the world...

  59. left handed lol :)

  60. He reminds me of someone from Battleroyale

  61. Very nice interview! 9/10

  62. Nice interview Kage! GJ! Hope to see some nice replays from ReminD :)

  63. Wait.. I'm confused. He says "there is no imbalance, you should understand.", then he talks about how imbalanced some matchups are, particularly UD vs NE, then he again says only the players are imbalanced, not the race. Huh?! :|

  64. Remind != consistent Sometimes he is godlike, sometimes he sucks! But is a nice interview anyways ; )

  65. he doesn't make a lot of sense; saying that there are slight imba, then saying that its' the player, then saying how imba ud is, and then the most retarded thing: talons not imba vs orc, and that it's easier for orcs then for humans vs ud? extremely against ud lol, but then again ud have the best chances vs elf.

  66. nice interview but the balance part was hillarious ... first he says there is no imba but ud is imba vs ne and human ... htne he listts the matchups advantegas and dont put UD vs HU there, they again he saysthat ud are imba but nothing is imba its the player ... oh and also ne vs orc is balanced .... TYPICAL BIASED NE

  67. well done Kage! ReminD's account is the most amazing one I've ever seen O_O

  68. the dude has style and skill i'd give him that, one of my fave NEs

  69. UH OH!!! reminds sister makes something special happen in my pants

  70. Izgledas ko zixon :D

  71. OmG, just noticed he is left-handed.Look at the first picture, hahaha!Koreans are crazy.I mean, ok to write with your left hand, but this is freaking weird :o.Like playing a guitar the other way round...(which some ppl do)

  72. remind has a pretty sister ...

  73. @ camindar plz stop peeing in your pants

  74. 3 For ReMinD, go Sung Fighting!!! :D:D:D

  75. I'm getting bored of WCR's interviews. I don't like them anymore. They are too dull, unimaginative--it's too STANDARD. The questions are even dull. However, the approach to this interview was interesting--the blend of third person and first person. Nonetheless, I don't like it.

  76. Krossinc "I want an elf who admits \'The only reason I won this specific match was because of races.\'" I want a orc who admits, that the only reason he lost is, because of his stupidity.

  77. grubby did admit that he could've done more against shortround at WCG, but i guess he's still a stupid player, much stupider than you anyways.

  78. Most of you people are idiots. Kage cleared up Remind's comments about "imba". Read the comments people.

  79. and kage knows what remind was thinking when he said this cuz.........

  80. mouse on left hand?!

  81. IMBALANCED NIGHTELFS, DRYAD IS SO IMBA!

  82. gogo remind fight for eswc spot

  83. Nice interview & nice player

  84. Me like lot =D

  85. obviously human is overpowered because nothing "" human

  86. good interview gj kage

  87. he was joking you idiots

  88. ReMinD is one player that is truly fun to watch, some of the stuff ive seen him do is just inspiring...ReMinD will always be my favorite player, ever since watching him in BNet Season 1 (and im not an elf user!)

  89. remind ftw

  90. Only Kage could do an interview like that, nice work look more from you in the future =)

  91. i like remind now he got the imbalanced matchups perfectly :D

  92. Haha, undead is pure imba said by a Gosu and NE is certainly not. I'm going to remember that comment. Nice interview btw.

  93. Why do these reviews always have to have some kind of corny wordplay on the player's nick? "Moon me" ^^

  94. good job kage!!!

  95. I think it's funny how he rants about undead imbalance, then says player=imba and not race...mixing ideals...

  96. why are there slashes when i put commas ' ' ' ' ' '' whyyy

  97. if you don't yet know I have seen Remind playing every race beside Nelf too in different replays and even in competitions. I guess he is the right one to say just because he is mainly a NE but he certainly has also played other races and you can also see him and soju doing many different race teams together... They're both more over all players and I think they know what it's as orc vs. ne and they both may even find a beatway to it. And I think if there's a player who finds as an orc a solution for mass dot problematic it's a ne player using orc. Orc players are much much much ignorant to see they could use tavern heroes - (naming panda, pit lord as great examples) - they could use other units than raiders - they could use t3. They could do a lot of different things which they don't do. Btw. have you ever tried vs. night elf making mass air and making some promotions for them? armors and better attack and a few spirit walkers down to - if u tried that you should (and maybe even would) see that they own those talons in the air if they change form. But don't believe me - it's alright, I know u won't believe it until grubby or other tops start doing so.

  98. it's funny how u guys cry about imbalance, about the match ups is f***ing we.ige.remind he knows a LOT MORE THAN WC3 THAN U SO, if he says those re the imbalace match ups i truly believe he knows more than any 1 of u, so shut up. k remind all

  99. nice ;D

  100. Remind matchup equation makes Orc as the weakest race.... hmmnnnn

  101. To many NE player interviews.

  102. ^^ agreed

  103. @ peterra88...agreed ^^

  104. @nevermind, if you were talking to me, which i'm sure you were, you obviously didnt read any of this interview. He clearly states that the game is balanced and players win and lose only because of skill, but then says undead=imba like 50 times. Kind of ironic dont you think?

  105. gogogogogo rep pack

  106. Great interview :D ReminD has such great mentality and understanding for the game, every pro should be more like him

  107. I agree with this guy , its the player that makes the imbalance , not the race . I also agree with him that the only thing purely imba is undead , trust me UD vs Elf is way more imbalance than NE vs Orc

  108. hes a very good player

  109. YEEESSS, Finally a pro says UD is imba I wonder why he didnt mention that 2on2 matchups only depend on the race too -.- oh well, cant wait 4 replay pack :D

  110. Guys, i think i have explained it many times already. He said all races are more or less balanced, but his hardest matchup is undead. So he calls undead imbalanced in a joking sort of way. AS IN SARCASM. Its always the player and not the race for him, but he feels undead being his toughest matchup there are suggestions ONLY for undead.. Its not irony hes calling everything imba and stuff.. he used the "only undead imba!" purely as a joke, and added a smiley which i didnt put.

  111. yea how many times do you see an orc using dr silence to shut the dotts down...never, yet an elf would think of it pretty fast, orcs always go same heroes, and thats kinda weird!!! i am sure bm dr could pawn dots pretty easy, remind is right, not enough creative playing, ( silence would even own the mass summoning)

  112. mhhh , i like remind and his play style but .. ne ud ? l o l

  113. well peterra i am glad you have the solution for the abuse of mass dotts. mass air and panda. But i think it will be pretty useless cause mass dotts own air in crow form especially with a demon hunter with an orb a beast master with piggies and the useless archers ofcourse. And i think the mana pool of the panda won't be enough 2 destroy all the dotts. Because against good players you cant creep up your panda because DH will keep harrassing. And you need a expo for mass wyvs too be really effective and i dont think you can set one up. You know maybe i will believe you if you try it against me and it will be succesfull....and i am no way near remind's deadman or moonslevel. Your just a stupid ass so please STFU NEWB

  114. @peterra ... ok i just imagine mass orc air vs ne ( playing mass dots ) .. he just got to add some hypos .. 1 or 2 armorgrades , dh with an orb , ur bats take out the hypos ur talons rape ur wyvern .. and ur walker?.... theyll live the longest vs massrangedmagcdmg... really really good solution u brought up here! im neither an orc player nor a ne player but i cant understand all the orcs whining about imbalanced mass dots while they got a matchup (vs ud ) which their opponent cant win just if he orcplayer makes an mistakes .... of course im talking about even players... mfg

  115. GOGO REMIND BEST ELF WORLD!!

  116. Good interview, great style. Too bad he's a lefty :P

  117. does he speak english? or did you have to have a translator?

  118. sorry Kage I loved the interview and ur skillz but that sarcasm u mention was never conveyed in the article

  119. LOL orcs read for god's sake what I say before commenting! I SAID you MAKE PROMOTIONS for your air. It's so damn hard to understand that yeah orc has promotions too and he can use them. I am a night elf player (yeah!) and I have lost so many times to an orc who makes mass promoted air because 1) I don't usually even build a Hunter's Hall and second I don't do any promotions to my units vs. orc (so far I don't need them). But this pays back when orc makes promotions (armors, attack) for his air and yeah he owns my air and so far I remember Orc has heroes too - you can run hero (well u do it anyway) so can't you orc players really control ur heroes without raiders? if it's so it's very sad. Make up mass air and that silly SH and use him with BM to kill that "imbalanced DH". And I just showed this as an example what you could try - it wasn't you should do so. But there're far more unit than just raiders and grunts and walkers. As long as you keep making always always and always those units vs. NE you're the one to blame about lose cause u didn't do any move to do something new and effective. When you have tried every single unit in every single different grouping I will admit that it's imba. Btw. if you read battle.net there is an advice for NE players "You should use talons for killing raiders and Taurens which are otherwise much too strong" - ROFL! :D

  120. REmind is rediculously great... so wonderful to watch

  121. whoever wrote the comment system is a f***ing retard for not using the stripslashes function. how annoying.

  122. couldnt access his profile nice article though

  139. once MIL league is over ;) koreans are so damn secretive ;O. Like his opponent wont have 100+ replays of him to study anyways... Seems nice guy only stupid thing he said was huorc Hu v Orc has always been considered the balanced match up a match up that blizzard should try to = in balance with the others... X_x keep playing and change race so i can like u a little principales... hate the noob elves ;).

  140. Nice interview. Didn't know much about him before.

  141. Remind ftw ^_^

  142. GIVE ME THE REP PACK?! haha

  143. Ooohh, a left-handed player. Intresting.

  144. i cant wait for the replay back go remind your the best

  145. nice interview

  146. “All Orc players who think Talons are imba and shit, should really see Grubby’s replays and his playing style to adapt.
    too bad grubby said himself in an interview that it takes 3 weeks of pratice to play correctly vs nightelves where it takes him 1 week vs other races, if he fails to see how dots are overpowered when they just mass it while the orcs try to counter them with units that are suppose to rape them and still lose vs mass dots, theres a problem

  147. Pretty nice interview, but some of the English at the beginning is a bit shaky ^^

  148. remind 4 teh imba !!!!!!!!!!!

  198. "Note: ReminD has mentioned that he will give a replay pack to the interview, once the MIL League is over, so keep watching this space for that replay pack!"

    feels like i've been doing for some months now -.-;

  199. Good Job Kage~

  200. Not only is he really good WC player, he's a nice guy as well ^^

  201. Hey guys , can you take seriously sby who calss himself "why i elf"l.He
    Reminds me indians talking in western movies.
    Me elf you Jane, oug!

  202. finally i hear someone that says dotts are not imba vs orc. It is merely the player that thinks so. Thank you remind !! your so pro

  203. Actually dotts are not imbalanced against orc but the heroes that tank with them (dh, beastmaster, tinker, firelord, kotg) - the point of using that strategy is to pull main pressure on the tankheroes and then keeping orc heroes in air so they can't keep the focus on their heroes when they're forced to do hard microing without heroes.

    Anyways never dotts are imba - they're weak like peace of **** and in case you have problems with dott tactic watch a few games of we.ige.focus and u will understand that using raider+batrider+demolisher combomination is a very good choice vs. it - all you need to do is to keep pressing e and blocking the move of dotts while focusfiring them with demolishers and then if night elf tries this change of form and fly behind them just selfkill the bats and they get so badly damaged that once they're on ground again one hit of hero or raider will instantly kill them.

    Anyways believe me the mainfactor of imbalance with dott-tactic are the heroes who tank with them, not the dotts themselves.

  204. Winning isn't based around certain strategies. It's based around the players.

  205. i think its about time wcr made a new interview,this one has been for the past 3 months

  206. gogo remind

  207. He looks like inteligent and kind person

  208. New INTERVIEW PLS

  209. wow wow pew pew

  210. REMIND OWNS!!

  211. i'm fed up with this reminds picture when you open WCR...
    6 months !!!

  212. HOW LONG IS THAT MIL LEAGUE?
    WE WANT REPLAYS!

  213. seems like a quiet guy

  214. The replays will probably never come,see how long time ago the interview was!

  215. he looks so depress rofl

  216. He looks so... depressed.

  217. Still waiting for that replay pack ... :D

  218. That replay pack won't come out...I'm afraid the transport of the package was interrupted by the Western snipers of Gunahomoa. How about one day, we go to the West and steal the replays back from the tribes, strip them of the entertainment they've had for months, and make them pay! ARE YOU WITH ME?!

  219. Replays pack???

  220. I dont think that Ne == Human... And its also hard for undead to beat a good elf

  221. haha I know this has been here for a long time, but I just recently read it. Nice job Kage :)

  222. no damned replay pack ftl :(

  223. Go ReMind _

  224. gogog kage
    u make a perfec job!
    10ks

  225. nice to know a down to earth player..someone who plays for the love of the game...nice interview too....more power tou you guys...

  226. comment test

  227. wat happened 2 remind?

  228. LEFT HANDED OWNAGE go remind

  229. Testing's~

  230. left handed...

    crazyy

  231. hahaha did you saw his stats omfg o,,o
    nice interview though

  232. reminds always been a favorite player, when he's on his game he's amazing. he is right about what he said (also wasnt serious when he ment pure imba) or mostly imo, also you guys should stop talking so much shit about him. it's his opinion on a video game, he still seems like a nice guy you dorks :>

  233. (\(\
    (. .)
    (''')(''')

  234. I wonder if blizzard still listens to pros these days regarding game balance... (honestly, not being a sarcastic dick like it probably sounds considering this is a comment on a blog)

  235. you think blizzard will listen to remind because hes pro?
    blizzard has been programming and balancing this game for more than 7 years.. its one of the best strategy games among all video games.. no one can say whether its balanced or no .. its blizzard and i think warcraft is balanced in someway

  236. interesting interview ^^

  237. where's the replay pack if MIL League is over ? =)

  238. wow i love you

  239. ... nice interview
    i dont fancy ne too much .. in roc i played ud when tft came out i switched to orc because to me it felt like they became complete :P
    anyways i really enjoy intelligent play and for this i really respect ReminD
    i wish him the best of luck
    keep going and improoving

  240. nice done interview, more of this pls thx. about Imbalance: So many people talking about imbalance but not meantioning what the mean concrete. even remind did not say WHY he thinks this or that matchup is "imba". i think the better micro/macro and smarter player wins. the races are more less balanced. talons for example are of course very good but this is a race specific strenght! do you want to make all units the same? should the demon hunter be as strong as the bm?

  241. I knew it.... i always felt the same way about imbaness as ReminD.

    As an NE player, I confess NE is somewhat imba against orc, but that is really, nothing compared to the extent that UD is imba over NE.

    For a start, orc has Blade, and that itself resolves a lot of imbaness, esp. in early game creeping etc.

    On the other hand, UD seriously dominates elf in almost all stages of the game. T1 Ghoul skelly rush -> T2 naga/lich push -> T3 tri hero nuke + right click.

    NOT saying they arent counterable, just extremely hard, esp. if ur caught out of position, u can lose entire army or wisps.

  242. nice he steers the mouse with his left hand
