CC News Interview-- MrBenn

Postby nagerous on Tue Oct 20, 2009 5:17 pm

Hey

In order to help samuelc812 with the hard work he has done to keep the newsletter up and running I am taking over this section.

In this 20th edition of the CC newsletter there is going to be an interview with CC's head of cartography MrBenn

Please post any questions you may have for him here and he will answer them in the next edition!

Also, think your worthy of being interviewed or know of someone who you would like to see being interviewed, then drop me a PM with your recommendation.

Many thanks

What is the best part about being head cartographer?

And the worst?

Which map is your favorite for graphics? Gameplay?

How long after you joined ConquerClub did it take you until you noticed the foundry?
What brought you to the foundry in the first place?
Did you have previous graphic design experience before ConquerClub?

If ConquerClub has a map cap, and one had to be elimiated before another was added. Which 3 maps would you eliminate to make room for the next to be quenched?

If you could only play 1 settings combination and a handful of maps for the rest of your life (3-5), what would you choose?

Outside of the Foundry and playing games, what else about Conquer Club do you enjoy?

Who were some of the first members you ran across in the forum when you started out?

What do you find fascinating about the cartoon character MrBenn?

Does the name 'MrBenn' actually have any relevance to your name?

Which is more painstaking---making maps, handling feedback and suggestions, etc; or being the Foundry Foreman and overseeing the development of all maps? And why?

What is one item that you always have in your fridge?


Are there any other maps that you would like to see revamped?


What is your favorite game play feature (bombardment, make your own bonus, auto-deploy, classic, etc)?


Favorite sports team?

What are some changes you have seen in the foundry since when you first started here?
Are they positive changes?

What would you like to see changed in the foundry?
Do you think the current system of just 3 cartographers works, or do you think it was better when there were 4 or 5?

How do you delegate power in the foundry between the other cartos and the assistants?

What is your favoite part of ConquerClub?
Why?

Who is your favorite person on CC?
Would you ever want to meet then in real life?
If you ever saw someone in real life wearing a conquerclub shirt, would you apporach them?

How long have you been a cartographer?

What was your favorite map to make?
What is your favorite map that you have seen go through the foundry?
Are there any maps currently in the foundry that you really love (besides your own maps)?

How much time do you spend on CC each day?
Has CC ever got in the way of your real life?

How do you feel about the general idea that, mibi is being a protected user due to the fact that he has maps that CC doesn't want to lose, yet t-o-m was gone in an instant?

Yes or no, do you see bias in the activities of TeamCC's general moderation "Death Squad"?

What do you think of the new moderator choices?

Does King Sam look good in a thong? Does InsomniaRed? Does MrMoody?

Are you and MrMoody an item?

Live Chat - A giant waste of space? killerpit4e - Much the same?

Going into Clans...

TOFU is said to be the rising star of the CC Clan world. Would you agree or disagree? High rank - does that simply mean you've foe'd all the better players?

Do you like my shiny medals? STOP STARING AT MY CROUCH.

Do you like men?

What do you think is the explanation for lack being unable to upload maps at a reasonable pace? Do you think that he *gasp* finally got laid!?! Our lacks' all grown up.

Onto the Tournament scene...

What type of tournaments do you like to see? When you have time, what ones would you like to participate in? Do you think you will ever win one? (Note; I haven't looked at your profile to see if you had won one yet).

Do you like men in lace? O.o

How long you been married?

What's an awesome color?

Do you agree that it is indeed Super-chocolate-fudge time?

What did you do on Halloween?

Porn - How much do you do?!?

I'm bored...?
