Member Spotlight Firestrike
It’s time for the next youngster! And even more because both, Daze and Katsou, mentioned him in their Spotlight.
Also he is one of my favorite guild mates. I’m sure you can always count on him (when you haven’t killed him before because of his jabbering) and when you need help he will help if possible. I always appreciate when he joins my TS-Channel … really!
Firestrike is the kind of guy who you either love or hate. He is funny but sometimes he just speaks a lot! This is annoying sometimes but we are having loads of fun in games where you can grief people. When he plays a game he is very dedicated (Best trader in darkfall xD) and surprisingly he can aim! To sum up firestrike is a nice guy you would want in your group.
I knew him from DF1 as a trader but to my surprise he developed into a PvP player within SUN and it is always fun to play with him since you don't need to spend energy into getting a conversation going, he will do it and even take your part in a dialogue. Hopefully he will attend one of the meetings to have a few beer with him.
Welcome to the Interview and I hope you have fun!
How old are you and where do you live irl?
I’m 22 years old from Tel Aviv,Israel.
Tell us a little bit more about you:
I finished my mandatory army service of 3 years in as a UAV operator a year ago and I’m now on the path of starting Uni in a few weeks.
I have a retarded dog named Sean and a cute lady called Sarah.
What's the story behind your nick?
I think when I was 9 or 10 I would spam all the nicknames to register an account for whatever game it was,when all of them were taken (even the dumbest ones) I decided I’ll make a nickname retarded enough that no one will ever consider taking. Thats how the legend was born :)
Which games are you playing at the moment?
Derping in Rust with Katsou, Failing at life in Planetside 2 with Makeme, Evoke, EKS and the rest.
Playing Single Player games while being on TS and pretending it counts as Multiplayer.
Hoping 2014 will be a better year for gaming ...
What is SUN for you?
To put it simple, SUN is my home and family on the Internet.
It’s insane how many great people I’ve met in SUN and I’m really grateful for that.
Tell us a bit about your Story with SUN?
Back when Darkfall was in its final days and we were getting zerged by every single entity in the game I decided to leave my prized clan of Happy Fighters (which I’ve been in for over a year) and join the good fight. Once we actually quit DF pretty much decided to put MMO’s and gaming aside and focus on other things in life but as you can see that didn’t happen thanks to SUN being a gathering place with so many great people.
Tell us a bit about how a typical day in the guild is for you?
I wake up at 8:00-10:00 spam Katsou on Skype/Steam with “KATSOU SUN KATSOU SUN” (sing it in your head with the spider-pig theme) He then comes on TS and we try and derp around in a random game,we quit after 10 minutes and bitch for the rest of the day about how theres nothing to play.
Then we usually go play Heartstone with the more hardcore group of SUN.
I kinda miss the days of DF:UW launch where me and Daze would farm Khamsets on Ruby, meanwhile his alts would die one after another with 23,426 maps on them or when we actually managed to 2v1 some guy in banded and feel really good about it haha
How would you describe your time so far with SUN? What do you think, the future will bring for SUN gamewise?
My time with SUN has been great so far and I hope it will keep getting better and better.As for the future It seems we won’t be playing any major MMO for a few good years :(
Do you have any funny or fail stories from your gaming time which include other SUNs?
I’ll pick the best one :)
First one would have to be Dread Terror being the First SUN to every experience an E-Sport injury. For those who don’t know the story, it was a dark snowy night in Copenhagen and while our hero just finished picking his Champion in league he felt the urge to go and take a leak.
The daredevil spinned his gamer chair and dashed at the speed of light towards the toilet! (all that while the fear of the game starting while hes afk lingering within his heart)
Terror was nearly there when he felt he stepped on something round and bottly.. IT WAS A MOUNTAIN DEW BOTTLE from the millions he has scattered around room, Terror tried to regain balance but to no avail the Champion of SUN has lost his balance and crashed into the ground mangling his foot into an octopus arm.
He called his good friend Makeme (aka The Sugar Daddy) and told him of the event.
Makeme knew he had no choice and bought Terror a Nidalee skin so he will feel better and so it was.
Months and years later Terror still hasn’t gone to the doctor and the legends tell his mangled foot still roams the streets of Copenhagen until this very day..

The fast shots (you can only answer with a charname)
- Which SUN has done something you appreciate? - DazeMakemeFenix (ITS ONE CHAR NAME ) Daze, for being a really awesome guy and one of the people I’ve met in sun which I am really grateful for meeting. Fenix, for being the address for any inquiry, issue, problem that I might have even when all I need is a good advise. Makeme, for being one of the funniest guy in SUN especially when hes drunk as well as a true dedicated officer.No sun will ever forget the 3 epic months you spent at the workbench!
- As you see it, which SUN is the best pvp'er? - Fenix by far just due to how hardcore he is, heck he drilled holes in his keyboard so he can install more buttons lol.
- Who is the most helpful? - Fenix & Makeme,can talk to them about anything really.
- Who is most angry? - Terror (although he's keeping a low profile so he doesn’t get the SUN award).It worked for him this year.
- If you needed help ingame, who would you contact? - Usually Katsou but just so he could say his famous “I don’t know” phrase.Then I’d probably contact Frank/Fenix/Makeme
- Who has the sexiest char? - Makeme. The only one who cares what hair color and earings his char has.
Tell us one thing about you that no one in SUN knows about you.
Back in 2009 when Darkfall 1 was at its peak I had a really annoying girlfriend who insisted I should spend less time playing games as its a “waste of time thats holding me back”.One day she basically told me I need to choose between her or playing games.It was a very lonely summer.
Which SUN should be the next one for the Spotlight?
Thanks a lot!
