This month KP will be interviewing: C4 aka Hellish and Doofy.
 
We'll get started with C4 first.
 
Q: How is this new stage in your college years treating you? You mentioned in your resignation that you left the staff team because of it, I still don't know if I can forgive you...
 
A: To be honest, it's a mixed bag, it varies significantly day by day & department by department. Some days I'll have absolutely nothing to do on clinic, whereas others, I have long shifts or presentations to make. All in all was hoping to learn more than I am at the moment, hopefully, that comes as I progress through the rotations.
 
Q: If your mother didn't beat you up until you become a doctor, what would you like to be?
 
A: Both my parents actually attempted to dissuade my brother & me from pursuing this career. If not for medicine, which I'd decided on from a young age, I'd have probably studied pure biology & genetics, however, I'm not sure how far I'd be able to go in that field without a medical degree.
 
Q: https://www.alora.io/forums/topic/44616-i-love-vuqe/ Regarding this topic, the players would like to know how the relationship is looking like, I heard some cheating was going on...
 
A: We broke up. I caught Vuqe cheating with Scuffed EIM just one time too many. I decided to get my revenge by telling him that items dropped by an Ultimate Ironman will last for 60 minutes. Vuqe, being the whale he is, dropped & lost all his seeds. We separated shortly after.

 

Q: This question is going to make Mack angry no matter what. IF you had to pick between revamping Chambers of Xeric or the Achievement Diaries, which one would you pick and why?

 

A: Obviously would pick both. If I HAD to, however, I'd say raids. I've seen firsthand the proposed raids changes and they'd be fantastic BUT, there needs to be a major overhaul in loot accompanying it, donator statuses are disproportionately overpowered.

 

Q: What do you enjoy doing the most on Alora? Bullying Paine doesn't count.

 

A: Although the amount of hours I've been putting in Alora has dropped, I still enjoy working on my main account to truly complete it. I just spent 2 weeks trying to get an eternal slayer ring (which I got today), going to passively work on some 200m skills and other niche items. Just whatever I feel like doing tbh. 

 

Q: What is your most unusual talent?

 

A: 1. As a fair few people here know, I'm able to draw on my skin and have it appear as an allergic reaction. Take Redius's signature for example: https://i.imgur.com/olyw7sJ.png

 

2. To be muted on a whim, at any point in time by God

 

 

Now let's take it on over to Doofy.

 

Q: Ever since you returned to the staff team, you seem to have found the balance between the game and IRL. Being able to stay consistent in the game and not burning out is something that not everyone can do. What’s the secret? 
 
A: Although I don't have as much free time as I used to due to work, finding the balance between staying consistent and not burning out has been really important for me. For me, it was understanding that my position here on the staff team is a volunteer position. I don't force myself to get on when I really don't feel like it, whether its because I'm exhausted or feel like playing something else that night. I know that if I were to force myself to get on and be a stafferman every day after I get home from work I would for sure be burnt out. Personally, I believe that even if I am not on all the time, I am able to perform my duties much better because I am choosing to do them, rather than feeling like I have to do them.
 
Q: Why are dolphins the cutest animal on the planet, and why do you love them so much?  
 
A: I actually don't think dolphins are the cutest animal, however, I do think they are pretty badass. Dolphins are incredibly intelligent, and a lot of people don't realize there are 40 different species of dolphins and one of my favorite species of dolphins are Killer Whales (Orcas). Transient Killer whales will often play with their food or even hurt other marine mammals such as seals just for fun, oftentimes doing so by flinging them up into the air or drowning them.
 
Q: When are you going to take those hands off Jisoo? You know who he belongs to...
 
A: I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this question... I do not think of Jisoo as property, nor do I believe he belongs to anyone but himself. He is an amazing person and someone I consider a close friend. I have been fortunate enough to spend lots of time talking and working with him throughout my time here on Alora.
 
Q: If you had to pick ONE content update, rework or fix to add to Alora, what would it be and why?  
 
A: Curses. Specifically, soul split so I don't have to pay attention when killing bosses.
 
Q: If you were an animated character, who would you be and why?
 
A: This is a hard one... I think I might have to go with Donkey from Shrek. There is just something about his ability to communicate and subconsciously manipulate 'people' into doing what is in his best interest that intrigues me.
 
Q: Who is the best hardcore ironman, Smiv or IM Moe? They both seem to be extremely talented, but I think you are the right person to pick a winner on this.  
 
A: Personally, I must go with Smiv on this one. Although Moe and Smiv have a similar track record with their HCIMs, Smiv’s tenacity and ‘not going to quit’ attitude is oddly inspiring. Who knows what NPC will take his life next and I’m sure as per usual, it will be a pleasant surprise.
