    Oh my this looks fun! So many questions.....so many answers. I'm pondering an epic question to ask, legendary even :)
    But I've been drinking so the only things that come to mind are mildly inappropriate so, I will revisit when I can think of something to ask. Game related of course and not too personal.

    @Shteevie Are you actively using bruisers in your team and if not, why ?

    @Shteevie I'm big into music and I wonder your thoughts on a question asked by a musical group named City High...

    What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone on the bedroom floor, cause he's hungry and the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money and his daddy's gone, somewhere smokin' crack rock now, in and out of lockdown; I ain't got a job now?

    @Shteevie, having never been to Finland , what is there to see and do? Norway is on my to do list because of my ancestry, I was just wondering what this Nordic country had to offer. It would be nice to hear your point of view.

    what is there to see and do?

    39) Well, since I came here for the job, this is a question I'm still answering for myself. My last month has been predominated by moving particulars, so I can tell you a lot about the experiences I have had inside government offices and furniture stores.

    The city has tons of museums, a plucky but inconsistent football club, great coffee, and a fair amount of street art and festivals. Leisure activities and luxury items seem to be pretty expensive, but people are aware of the cost, so average quality is pretty high.

    I'm looking forward to the Northern Lights, and not looking forward to the promised light deprivation madness.

    @Shteevie
    You indicated earlier that you've been ftp for about 9 months. What kind of guild are you in? Is it competitive? Have you made friends with your mates? Seen players come & go? I think this is a really important aspect of the game & I'd love to hear about your guild experience :smiley:

    @Shteevie
    Have you learn any Finnish, while you have been here?
    Like, if I say something like "Hyvää iltaa Shteevie, mitä kuuluu?" Do you know what that means?
    What you think about Finnish beer (if you even drink beer lol)?
    Have you Visited Korkeasaari? (Finnish Zoo in Helsinki) If you have, what you think about it?

    Well, that's all I can think of to ask right now :p

    @Shteevie , love your reference to CCG on the forum:

    1) What CCG do you have experience with?
    2) Does black, blue, green, red, white mean anything to you in context of CCG? If so which one do you identify with the most?
    3) Which of the Hawaiian Islands is home to you?
  • ShteevieShteevie Staff Posts: 1,335
    What CCG do you have experience with?

    45) Wow, lots of them. I started playing Magic when Revised hit, so I missed out on the big money. I moved on at Mercadian Masques.

    I have played the Magic, Legend of the Five Rings, and Netrunner [old and new] competitively, was lead designer on Magi-Nation and Anachronism [no one will have heard of those], and worked on L5R & Spycraft in different capacities.

    Does black, blue, green, red, white mean anything to you in context of CCG? If so which one do you identify with the most?

    46) Of all my decks, I miss my Breathstealers Crypt and Portcullis decks the most. I had a goofy fun Thran Forge deck, too. My Type 1 Deck [when it was called that] was G/R/W and ran 6 dual lands and 4 Mishra's Factories, and no other lands. For me, it was more about the mechanics and combos and not so much identifying with a color. I'll always be a Phoenix, though.

    Which of the Hawaiian Islands is home to you?

    47) I was born and lived on O'ahu. It's on the list of places I would want to retire to, but there's no games industry there, so it'll have to wait.

    @Shteevie Gooba goba gooba goba...one of us...one of us...wow...just found this thread...and I thought you were loquacious in your game related posts...impressive...

    The one time I was in Helsinki, I found the Finns to be on the reticent/laconic side. How do they handle your more voluble style and nature?

    @Shteevie you mentioned you were born and lived on O'ahu. Any chance you ran into the United States of America's president Barack Hussein Obama? It's rumored he was born and raised in Honolulu. :lol:

    48) They are known for being somewhat reserved, and I think that's partially true. The group I work with is very international, and so the Finns in that group are used to having more outspoken teammates around. For some, it allows them to open up and jin in occasionally. For others, it takes the possible attention off of them and allows them to be even more reserved. As with any group, the individual personalities are far more interesting than the stereotypes.

    I will say that I'm frequently questioning myself to see if there were times my outspoken nature put off someone I was talking to. Moving to a new country requires a lot of self-examination.

    49) Obama was probably already in college by the time I was born, and he went to school on the mainland. There were over a million people living on O'ahu alone when I was a kid, so it's not like everyone knew everyone else. I would love to meet him and ask him some questions over coffee or a beer. Probably won't have the chance to, though.

    @Shteevie what is your favorite social networking game & why?

    50) My favorite gaming experience with a social aspect s one where I have to work together with other players to do things I can't do on my own, especially where those players all have different specialty roles. MMO raids, FIFA group PvP, D&D [though I usually GM], or even Battleborn. I like the feeling of being a part of a team, of perfecting my skills that are different from a teammates, and of relying on others and being relied upon.

    I played WoW at launch, picked it up again with Cataclysm, and again at Pandaria. I played FFXI for 6+ years, all the way through to the last or second-to-last expansion. I'm playing FFXIV now. These all give me that sense of being a specialist in a group, and the rush of batig something you have tried and failed at several times is awesome.
    If you had a magic wand & could instantly make changes to NML's social networking, what would you do?
    bonus! 51) I'd love to add some guild-based PvP to the game. Group outposts, where we all have to help defend and raid them, or Guild v Guild setups where everyone raids 5 random outposts of the opposing guild and total wins are compared for prizes. Especially if there was a sense of strategy, where my guild could choose members with the right teams for each opposing challenge. Howabout a Guild challenge that was a series of missions against difficult parties of Freemen and the whole guild was rewarded if everyone defended their outposts? Something like that. I want to root for you and fight alongside you, maybe even find a way to help you out.
