Last week we sat down with Darkfall Tournament organizer Ninogan Swiftstep and had a little interview! Ninogan performed admirably and held up bravely against our barrage of questions!

We posted up our little chat on the Darkfall Blog (http://www.darkfallonline.com/blog/darkfall-interview-ninogan/). We hope you'll pop by and enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it! :)

why does he get an interview and someone else

DeManiac
11-26-2010, 16:08
Well, I don't know why he couldn't have one.

They interviewed those making the statue did they not?

They have featured the events, and in making these events Ninogan has committed quite some time and not just leached.

So, that would be the determining factor, as they point out in the interview, they consider him as someone who arranges events. Which is good since in a sandbox , doing stuff like that goes along with the overall concept.


Had the current communication been present while Manus lead Hyperion, he would most likely have been a target aswel.
Simply because while it lasted, the actions of Hyperion had an overall impact on the whole gameworld.

By arranging an event, something which affect more then two persons happen. And by doing it more then once, it amount simply increases.

My interview would be much more interesting lol.

To be honest games companies never interview anyone controversial.I was never interviewed or even ever menetioned by CCP despite being the most famous player in Eve for a number of years and every dev there knew who I was and I dont expect AV to be any different although it seems they do recognize my fame from the Syncaine interview.

Ninogan is generally viewed as a community saint and all round good guy who gives DF great pr and its no surprise he was chosen for this blog.

Pretty hilarious to censor the name of Moral Online a game of maybe 500 subscribers with even more problems than DF at launch.
Rather betrayed their own insecurities there to be honest.

Just because you are the loudest DF player, doesn't mean you are worthy of an interview.

Loudest != Most Famous

It's really sad that you think so highly of yourself in this game and that you thought you were so famous in EvE. The only reason you were so famous in EvE was because of your constant bitching and moaning and your bloated ego that was undeserved, and your absolutely hysterical raging that got you banned.

It's the same thing in Darkfall. You're not known as an awesome PvPer, you're known as the most loud, annoying, and pathetic player in this game.

I'd suggest getting actually good at something in real life, maybe then you can find joy in your sad little life. I don't write this to be mean, I truly think you need help.

We'd appreciate if this thread doesn't end in a flame-war.
Regarding the game mentioned: we didn't want to post something negative about another developer. It doesn't matter in the end what game it referred to :)

then Moderate Every section of these forums properly like a real company would do.
i assume there are many potential players who want to play this game but after reading all the bullshit and flaming in clan discussion they just don't want to anymore / can't be bothered with all the trashtalking.

No, this forum is awesome because they give us freedom.

Plus, what would the clan discussion be without some brutal politics!

Thanks ^^ I'm happy with Zowie it's just a nice bonus that comes with spending time on my hobby and I have no real plans on trying to get bigger sponsors or making movies for more mainstream games or becoming an e-sport gamer. I'm about to graduate from Uni soon and I'll be working in the game industry instead :)

Destroyer huh? Not many of those around. I'd love to do a melee/archery duel against ya if you're up for it.

Brazlar
11-27-2010, 12:03
Sometimes Destroyer, yeah.

But actually, rolling Indestructable at the moment. It's pretty decent at times. Not always much opportunity for me ta get an edge with Destroyer, so the extra resists take the edge off when i'm being nuke kited etc. Gives me some leeway to try n get ma head down till i can manouver n strike again.

Unfortunately, i'm not fantastic, i fizzle like mad cos of the heavies, so my 1 vs 1 skills kinda blow :/

But yeah, we can duel sometime when i'm not busy trying to blow stuff up. Asset Damage Wooo!!!! :sly:

I find it hilarious that after nearly 2 years you still havn't realized how different eve and darkfall on.

You could have been decent at eve because it was all about what you were willing to risk and how long you had been playing there wasn't much player skill involved.

However in darkfall everyone knows you arn't any good and that you just beat up newbies at starter towns all day long. You havn't even experienced the actual game yet as far as most of us are concerned. I kind of feel sorry for you.

I strongly vote for interviewing Uzik on NA1.
