NML Hall of Fame - Troublemaker

As part of "NML Hall fo Fame", I proudly present you one of the nominated players: Troublemaker!



"My name is Raphael and I’m 36 years old. I work as editorial and commercial photographer and I’m also a college professor. I have two kids and live in Jaraguá do Sul, SC, Brazil.



My first nick was rfg1982. I absolutely disliked it because I created it on PSN out of a rage moment when every single nick I tried was already taken. Then when NG gave us the opportunity to change nicks, I thought Troublemaker would fit my in guild behavior (lol), so I went for it. And I really like it!



I started NML on day 1 (if I can remember) when the app was suggested to me on Apple Store, but played very casually on early weeks. After a while, coming from a gaming background of Magic: The Gathering (turn-based strategy) and Diablo 2 (grind), I started to become more and more interested. I ended up joining Watchmen Reload, #1 guild in Brazil. After a few in-guild problems I felt it was the time to move and I looked after a Global guild. Fortunately accepted into Conquer. I have been with this group of friends for a long time. We have recently merged with Mavericks and my new friends are just as great as my old ones.



Joining Conquer was what changed everything. I learned many things that go beyond the game and inspire me daily on various situations. Simply great people there. The ones you want to be friend for life.



My three favorite characters are Dallas, Clyde and The Duchess. 



Dallas works perfectly with Sasha as Hero leader. I’d rather have Marksman instead of Sure Shot on him, but Sure Shot not a wasted trait. It helps hit more damaging charged attacks and works good with a Piercing weapon, all while being easy to set up when using Defensive Stance.



Clyde is what I call a perfect Retaliate Scout. The combination of Dodge + Iron Skin + Lucky and these badges helps him take hits from very high lvl walkers without dying or insta-struggling, thus making Retaliate a useful trait at high RSL. I also think Scouts have higher base damage than other melee classes so they are the best for Retaliate (no, I don’t like Retaliate on Bruisers). Power Strike is very easy to set up too with this build. He hits charged attacks good enough to 1-hit kill lvl 36 walkers and teams very well with Jesus or Michonne and another Scout (usually a Pike/Pitchfork specialist that does the big 45k+ hits).



The Duchess is here because she is my only Warrior and I enjoy playing with her a lot. I also think I’m really good with Warriors, so it’s just an easy choice for me while most complain about them being useless etc. To me Warriors are to NML what horses are to a chess game: tricky moves. Some times I think Retaliate would be a better trait than Power Strike here, sometimes I think it would not. Still conflicted about that week after week since forever.



Of course I also like Morgan, Rufus, Michonne, Abraham, Aaron, Sasha, Jesus etc, but these are unique to everyone so I’ll skip them.



My message to the community: real life and virtual life are the same thing, so don’t hide behind a screen “living” a persona. Try to meet people and make connections. Use this experience to make you a better person, not to live your weaknesses and fears. This is just a game, but it is not simply a game. Good vibes!



Thanks to everyone who voted for me. I’m glad I somehow made a difference. Also congratulations to all Hall of Fame nominees!"

Congratulations!

    Great to see this, otherwise I wouldn’t have known that you had changed your nick! You may not remember me but I definitely remembered the name rfg1982 when I was still with Conquer back then.

    Is Amiga still playing? I missed him a lot!
    Congrats in getting into the hall of fame too!

    Hi! It's so great to see you again. Amiga quit some time ago (if I'm not mistaken). But we still have lots of friends from early days. Thanks! 🙏🏻

    Hi there, congrats Raphael (Now, I know your name, hehe), and thanks for all you do around. I had the enormous pleasure of meet you in the NWs and only in a very small part of you... but it was enough to realize that you are a good person. You helped me with a couple of questions being always very friendly, and with to your words in this note I really realize that it means a lot.

    Congrats and thanks a lot again!

    Keep going and see you around!
