My plan is to interview several of Warzone's top and most well-known strategy players, starting (hopefully) with those who have achieved the distinction of gaining a golden trophy from the Multi-Template Ladder created by Deadman. This trophy requires 10 consecutive games while remaining 1st rank on the ladder and is generally considered one of the toughest achievements in Warzone.


(You can find more information about the Multi-Template Ladder from this thread - https://www.warzone.com/Forum/216823-multiday-ladder?Offset=0)
(Link to Multi-Template Ladder - http://md-ladder.cloudapp.net/home)


The initiative for this thread is to let the community get to know some of the best strategy players a little bit better, while providing those players a podium on interesting topics.

Interview with AI (https://www.warzone.com/Profile?p=6561482549)
AI reached a best of 2111 on the MTL.
He has also achieved trophies on the 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, RTL, and Coin Leaderboard.


Here is an interview I had with the latest MTL trophy champion, AI. Post-interview, I am now, more than ever, convinced that it is a computer.

The interview is as follows:


Pardon:
First off, congratulations on 1st place on the mtl. You cemented your placement with your win over Mod and have held 1st for 10+ games and counting.


AI:
Thank you. It was a tough way and the win over Mod was indeed the deciding game on my way. It's also remarkable that the first time I made an attempt for the trophy, I lost it against Mod on the same template, Pangea.


Pardon:
Let's begin with some background questions. Where does the nickname AI come from. Are you really human?


AI:
The story behind my nickname is pretty boring actually. Some time ago in Warlight (yes, thats the name of the game) players that turned into AI's were displayed as AI: was player name. For some reason I thought it would be funny if it were AI: was AI when clearly it's not funny.


Pardon:
I think that's pretty funny.


AI:
Your humour is even worse than mine, in that case.


Pardon:
I also noticed your profile picture changed recently to a cartoon bear. What happened with that, did you lose a bet?


AI:
My previous profile pic was pretty meh, so I watched out for something that would equal the expression that I make when I win a close game. At the same time I want to show the world that I love y'all. I think that cartoon bear symbolizes those things perfectly.


Pardon:
Alright, every time I see your profile on Discord, it says you are listening to spotify. What do you spend all your time listening to?


AI:
That's true. My streaming time on Spotify in the previous year almost was 100k minutes. I listen to music all the time, no matter what I do. Most of the time it's german music, KIZ and AnnenMayKantereit being my current favourite bands. But actually I do have playlists for all kinds of different things, for example I have a playlist I always listen to when I work that mostly contains insturmental music, and so on.


Pardon:
I heard fsg and rakleader like bts. You should check them out.
Let's get into the warzone questions now.
So you got 1st and are currently holding it on the multi template ladder. Do you think you are the best player on Warzone now?


AI:
No, not at all. At this very specific moment, I might be one of the very best, which means something like top 5. However, if we look at the whole history of the game, there are many more people who I would say achieved greater results and were better than me.
That being said, I want to improve further and stabilize myself as one of the best players on Warzone. For example via longevity of #1 on MTL


Pardon:
Good stuff. As you probably know, Rufus, the mtl record holder, has rejoined. Do you have any thoughts on that? How do you plan to keep 1st.


AI:
I love it. He has been the dominator of MTL in the past year or two, and I hope I can put up a fight against him in the long run from now on. I love the competition, I think it will make me better and will also make him better, since I feel he hasnt been able to improve his game anymore in the past year. I feel I can still learn things from him, and other top players on MTL as well.
My strategy to keep 1st short-term though is to get myself more into a fighting spirit in games where I have a bad position. I tend to give up on those games too early and start to play desperate moves.


Pardon:
On your path to 1st you played with a lot of competitors. Which player did you have the most trouble with?


AI:
My biggest nemesis in general (not just MTL) are Mod and buns, I never do great against them.


Pardon:
Alternatively, which player was a point farm for you?


AI:
Clearly Summer. For whatever reason I do great against her.


Pardon:
The point of the mtl is to demand that players be strong at a variety of templates. Which template do you think is your weakest?


AI:
This is also an easy answer. I underperform a lot on French Brawl. I blame it on my ability to make predicts, I'm just a horrible predictor.


Pardon:
On the other hand, which template should opponents fear you on?


AI:
They dont wanna play me on Greece LD. Fizzer loves me and I always get superior auto-picks. Also, I have some idea how to play that template...


Pardon:
Interesting. Now that you have a new golden trophy, do you have any other goals? I see that you are also a frontrunner in the current seasonal.


AI:
Yea, it's the one strategic trophy I'm missing currently and I definitely plan on completing the set. I also have some plans ratingwise on the team ladders, but that's just the very future.


Pardon:
Speaking of the team ladders, there are some rumours that you are carried by R=U/I on the 3v3 ladder. What do you say to that.


AI:
It's my favourite teammate, actually. We harmonize perfectly, on an interpersonal level. Problem is, we both always make the same mistakes, so he's not too helpful and doesnt carry me much, actually.


Pardon:
That is sad to hear.
Let's get into the bullet round of questions now.
Please answer with just 1 word and as quickly as you can. Do not put too much thought into it.

I have a statement to make in my capacity as FiveStarGeneral's manager:

My client, FiveStarGeneral - who I will thereafter refer to as 'FiveStar', as he is colloquially known - has decided to come come clean and confess:

FiveStar does, in fact, have a secret obsession with BTS, and has actually listened to all of their albums. 'Love Yourself' is FiveStar's favourite album, and he does fancy Jungkook a little bit, but, like, in a normal, homoerotic kind of way. FiveStar doesn't know why he lied earlier in this forum, but hopes that by coming clean he'll maintain his good reputation and avoid being the target of a witchhunt at a later date should his lies be then uncovered.

FiveStar wishes to also express that he remains interested in an interview with Pardon.

Thank you for reading,
Quicksilver - Manager of FiveStarGeneral

Interview with FiveStarGeneral (https://www.warzone.com/Profile?p=3388515225)
SixStarGeneral reached a personal best of 2109 on the MTL.
He has also achieved trophies nowhere else.

Here is the interview I had SevenCircleMarshal. Post-interview, it is easy to see how he got his 5 stars.

The interview is as follows:


Pardon:
Hello FiveStarGeneral


FiveStarGeneral:
okay


Pardon:
good to speak with you


FiveStarGeneral:
you're welcome


Pardon:
let's start off with the name. how did you get your five stars? that is quite a lot of stars.


FiveStarGeneral:
it's my elementary school nickname
people called me that because i knew a lot about wars and worshipped war and was a warlike bloodthirsty child


Pardon:
at my school, we labeled those problem children


FiveStarGeneral:
get back on your yellow school bus


Pardon:
yessir general
many members of the community wonder why you don't have a profile picture, nor a discord picture
at times, it is easy to mistake you for others, for example, perhaps Max


FiveStarGeneral:
never seemed worth the effort
i'm a busy man


Pardon:
I've also heard you have been learning German recently. is this related to your interest in war? do you have any favourite words or phrases?


FiveStarGeneral:
mmm that was a while ago. 89th taught me a little when we played CL together
i don't
but i like how they mash together 5 words and call it a new word


Pardon:
yea I like to do that with my food sometimes


FiveStarGeneral:
well i don't think i'll be asking you to cook for me any time soon


Pardon:
you will also be happy to hear that I did get into contact with your manager, Quicksilver. he emphasized your adoration of BTS. can you fill me in on why you like them?


FiveStarGeneral:
lmao dude
i need to fire that guy
i literally don't know a single thing about BTS
i like IU
there


Pardon:
great! well she did a recent song with suga


FiveStarGeneral:
oh yea that one was meh to me. a little too poppy for my taste
i like her acoustic songs more
helps me go to sleep when i've lost some CL games


Pardon:
got any recommendations?


FiveStarGeneral:

heart
windflower
knees
peach


Pardon:
good to know
let's get into the Warzone questions now


FiveStarGeneral:
i like spicy food
favorite color is red


Pardon:
maybe we'll get the doctor to check in with you after this
but for now, let's focus on Warzone
you got 1st on the multi template ladder before. do you think you are the best player on Warzone?


FourStarGeneral:
short answer, yes
long answer, rufus may be better


Pardon:
that hedge was disappointing to hear


ThreeStarGeneral:
hedge?


Pardon:
admitting rufus may be better


TwoStarGeneral:
i am humble
wait no, i'm definitely better than rufus
please refer to this: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=20753242


Pardon:
well you did go 6-0 on french brawl in CL. do you think you are at least the best french brawl player on Warzone?


OneStarGeneral:
yes, i do


Pardon:
fitting for a general with 5 stars
we look forward to having you carry ONE next CL


ZeroStarGeneral:
hmm we'll see about that...


Pardon:
don't worry, as muli has mentioned before, retired players will be considered for only 2 slots. good luck!
throughout your Warzone career, you must have come across some of the best players repeatedly. which player do you think you have the most trouble with?


FiveStarGeneral:
rufus and mod are always tough matchups


Pardon:
which player is unnaturally easy for you?


FiveStarGeneral:
timi
i wish i got to play motd more
i think i've only played him like once


Pardon:
we all do


FiveStarGeneral:
:[
hope he comes back


Pardon:
what is dead will live again


FiveStarGeneral:
haha amen


Pardon:
throughout my research, and during talks with Quicksilver, I noticed that there is something striking that sets you apart from the other MTL trophy holders
this would be your remarkable lack of success in other areas of strategy in Warzone
as of now, the MTL is your only golden trophy - do you got any plans to fix this?


FiveStarGeneral:
not really
i'm doing a 3v3 run atm though
i'd like to get a trophy but it's ok if i don't
brb gotta do #2 irl


Pardon:
slightly disappointing to hear on both fronts
when you're finished, let me know and we can move to the bullet round of questions

If not, please submit an appeal to my manager
But tbh yes I think it'd be quite fun
