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?
