An Interview with HolyHuman
JokerZ: Hi there rC-XFi|HolyHuman! For those who don't know you, could you start by giving us a brief outline of your War3 history?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: Hello there. I started ROC when it first came out. I didnít really play it a whole lot because I was playing soccer most of the time. When TFT came out, I started off as an Undead player, but in the end I took human because I found them easier to play.
JokerZ: Nice =) You already kind of answered my next question, but why did you select Human as your primary race of choice? Have you ever played any race seriously besides Human?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: I chose human because I felt they had a lot of strategies and I have a lot more fun playing them! In WCG 2003 Regionals I played Undead VS players like faluzure / BigD, but that's the only time I really played another race... Iíll stick to my towers =)
JokerZ: Indeed Human FTW!
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: Hehe, it's a fun race for sure!
JokerZ: You've recently joined a new clan - redCode. How did you go about joining this clan and are you pleased with your new team?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: Rhonin contacted me about joining a few weeks ago, I took a lot of things into consideration, but I felt it was time for a change and I'm pleased with the line up we have at present. We haven't tested it yet, but we will see soon enough
JokerZ: Good luck!
JokerZ: After swapping clans alot fairly frequently, you are being regarded by alot of people, as someone who doesn't take his teams seriously. Would you say this is true?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: Most people will just see me leaving / joining teams but they dont understand things that happen. I do take my teams seriously. I was in ToT since September, I guess swapping teams is true, but I donít think its any of their business if I leave or stay in a team. Itís my personal choice.
JokerZ: Of course. On average, how many hours of Warcraft III do you play daily?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: Hmm.. I would say 3-5 hours usually. If there is a big tournament of course, it's more. I can't sit down and play for like 3 hours straight like some people do. I need breaks, but if there is a big event, I have to force myself to do as many hours as possible, otherwise I didnít give my best.
JokerZ: Do you believe that there are any imbalances within the game?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: There will always be imbalance in this game, its how you invent new strategies to counter the imbalance. For example, HU vs UD was and still is, about mass towers. If you don't, you will lose 95% of the time. This new Paladin first, invented by TH000, gives us humans a chance to be the harassers for once. So imbalance will always be here, its how you work around it...
JokerZ: What is your primary method of training? Do you prefer to Ladder, or custom game with clanmates?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: As a beginner I would say ladder. I probably played 500-1000 ladder games before I even started custom games. Custom games are great because you can practice what YOU want to. So at present, my primary method is CG's, if you want to get on the next level, that's what you have to do.
JokerZ: I see. Nice advice!
JokerZ: Do you listen to music while you play? If so, what is your preference?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: I rarely listen to music while I play, because I need to concentrate. If I do though, alternative rock or hip hop is always relaxing to listen to.
JokerZ: Do your family and friends fully support you playing Warcraft III, or is sometimes frowned upon?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: Well Family will always support you, with anything you do. I think they do sometimes think it is a waste of time, but going around the country meeting new friends etc. is priceless, so they do understand. My friends (non-gamers) think that it's cool, but also a bit nerdy, however, they live with it and always ask how I did etc.
JokerZ: Do you have any ambitions / goals for your Warcraft future? Both alone and with your clan.
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: I'd like to go to an international event. Last year I couldn't attend the WCG USA Finals, even though I qualified, so this year, I hope I will perform well and possibly go to the grand finals . As for the clan: WC3L. I hope we can make it, or at least come close to it. I think we will make NGL 2 as well when that is ready, so I think we shouldn't be taken lightly.
JokerZ: I'm scared already! xD
JokerZ: Besides Warcraft, what else do you do in your free time?
rC-XFi|HolyHuman: I like to hang with friends, go to the movies. Normal stuff like hanging out with my mom ( Hi tresh!). J/K =). I play soccer a bit, just kick about stuff, but still, it's fun.
JokerZ: Okay, some quick fire questions now! Favourite matchup?

JokerZ: Thanks alot for giving me the chance to interview you. Good luck with your games and your new team! Any shoutouts?
