Intervies.png

This month we will be interviewing our new staff members: Eliteduck and Citra.
 
 
Let's start off with Eliteduck...
 
 
A: Tell us a little about yourself.
Eliteduck: Firstly I'm 23 years old and I’m from Ohio. I've personally been playing Alora for 3 years when I’m not playing Alora, ill usually be working on my motorcycle.
 
A: What started your obsession with ducks?
Eliteduck: So the story being my username is that when I was in 6th or 7th grade I got my first Xbox and I was trying to think of a creative username and I did some searching and there’s a phobia of ducks looking at you, and from then till now its been my username and therefore that’s where my obsession with ducks came from (Anatidaephobia).
 
A: What are your current in-game goals?
Eliteduck: My current in-game goals are going to be maxing and getting completionist monkey on my elite ironman! 
 
A: If you could meet anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Eliteduck: If I could meet anyone in the world I think it would be Slash aka Saul Hudson from guns and roses, he was like my idol when I was growing up loved being able to play him on guitar hero and he actually got me into playing the guitar a little bit I don’t play much anymore I would want to me him over anyone. 
 
A: Do you have any IRL goals for the new year? 
Eliteduck: So I have a couple of goals this year for IRL, one of them is going to be trying to own a house by the end of this year, and another is I want to take my Harley kind of cross country with one of my good IRL friends. The biggest goal is going to be the house though.
 
 
Next up, Citra!
 
 
A: Tell us a little about yourself.
Citra: I gravitate towards electronics, I always have since I was a little kid. I would lay by my dad and watch what he was doing on windows 98-2000. After I was about 15; I created my own game. That was a great accomplishment for me and made me realize what I wanted to do in life. 
 
A: What is your favorite content on Alora?
Citra: I love the community-based things, Moe always does fantastic with them. ;P 
 
A: Do you have any hobbies outside of the game?
Citra: Snowboarding because I live in the mountains  ;)
 
A: If you could have lunch with any member of the community, who would it be and why?
Citra: Lowkey, he seems so chill.
 
A: What is your favorite show/movie and why? 
Citra: The 100. Because it pulled your interest at all times. I.E. Sometimes it was boring and then it suddenly peaked your interest again.
