Entrevista AOM: TheMista

Mensaje por SpNz | And_Che el Dom Jul 25, 2010 10:36 am

Bueno mi primer aporte.. una entrevista muy reciente a un PRO del AOM ... TheMista
al leerla saque varias conclusiones... yo que recien estoy aprendiendo... me sirvio mucho.

Since I guess I cannot technically post in the interviews forum, I was told to post this here. Maybe it will eventually be moved. Enjoy :flowers:

Interview with mG_TheMista

  • Name: Themistoklis Bonidis, but Themis for short. Themistoklis was an ancient Greek general that beat the Persian navy led by Xerxes at Salamina in the year 480 B.C.
  • When were you born: The 13th of March in the year 1992 so I'm currently 18.
  • Where do you live: The small town of Hraklia in Greece
  • Mother Language: Greek
  • Occupation: Military
  • Highest AoT rate: 1996
Gaming, and more specifically AoT:

1. Tell us some things about yourself in real life:

I have loved playing games on the PC/Play Station since I was really young (started at the age of 6 playing Red Alert). I also liked exercising. I played football before I started boxing, now I enjoy playing AoT, going out with friends and girls, and training for boxing.

2. Can you tell us a bit about your history in gaming? (what are all the games you have played)

I started with Red Alert on play station then AoE2-AoC and after AoC, I moved to Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne and then finally to AoT. I also played many other games but those were more for fun; the games I just mentioned were games I reached expert level.

3. When and why did you start playing AoM; why did you switch to AoT?

I tried AoM 5 years ago before I started WC3: FT. IG Zone collapsed and I couldn't play AoC anymore so I decided to move on to another game. I played 2 games of AoM in Single Player and I didn't like it so i didn't play it anymore after that. Three years ago two friends, X_Veil and X_Thamnos, came on the net that I was playing WC3 on, and they played aot. So I said I would give it a try and here I am :)

4. What does your username mean and how long have you used it?

I made it 6 years ago when i was playing Diablo II (for fun with some friends) it means Themis + Tough + Aggressor from my playstyle in the rts games.

5. What are your favourite nicknames and how did you choose them?

Entoutonika wich means Beathim Fovoutousellhnes which means "fear of the Greeks" and lastly I made Hmitheos_Gr which means "Demi-God". I chose them because of what they mean.

6. Can you describe your playstyle and why you think you play this way and why does it work for you?

I don't have a standard playstyle; I play a lot of different ways: I can be agressive, I can boom, I can raid, I can do all kinds of things. My strong card is that I can often read my enemy's mind and act before he can suprise me, I can also adapt very well.

7. Which is your favourite god and why?

Zeus of course: 1) I'm greek :), 2) I like microing, 3) I like playing a civ wich can make all kind of starts in early stages of the game.

8. How good are you with each civ, Eggy/Greek/Norse/Atty (RR):

Eggy: around 1920; my Ra is bad and it drops down in rr from there, Greek: 1950, Norse: 1940, Atty: 1900.

9. What is your greatest strength?

The way I think.

10. What is your greatest weakness?

I play arrogantly (onced I lost a game because I built a Titan and a Wonder at the same time (I wanted to show my enemy how great of an economy I had and lost because of that)).

11. If you could improve one thing about your gameplay, what would it be?

I would use hotkeys.

12. What gods have been your main gods throughout playing this game (I know you play Zeus as a main currently, but did you play any other god as a main previously)?

I started with Odin, then I played Loki, and now Zeus.

13. Which God is the easiest to play in both AoM and AoT and why is this?

Isis of course, great economy, great god powers that can turn game from a loss to a win, and also a strong army.

14. Which is the best god to play in both AoM and AoT at the highest level?

Zeus on AoT becuase of strong units and good god powers, Isis on AoM because Isis is Isis.

15. What was the most fun game you have ever played?

Zeus vs Isis on Savanah vs Action in the game which I killed his Wonder with 15 Collosi, I loved that.

16. What was the hardest game you've ever played?

I played so many hard games but I think it was vs a Thor on Anatolia. Isis vs Thor, he ragged and raped me.
I had only a Titan out, 2 Rocs, 1 Vill, 3 Catas and some Fishing Ships. I managed to rebuild myself with 1 vill and comeback into the game while he got 5 TCs and eventually I came back and won.

17. Do you have a "rivalry" with anyone in this game, similar to Sensuy and Magic or Hells and Action?

Action was a rival for a while, but our score is 100-6 or something when we used to keep score. After him it was Hells but he's not anymore because either I improved a lot or he has steadily gotten worse, I don't know.

18. Who is your usual 2v2 partner and who is your favourite 2v2 partner?

Atm it's Ervd, we have good teamwork. But my best was by far AciD_Ishindar, we self-invented double Bolt on Vills and then double rush.

19. Who is your favourite player and clan and why?

AciD was my favourite clan and my favourite player is SpOefT.

20. Do you play any other games on a different console?

I played God of War II and III, and Assassin's Creed II on PS3 while I was on Thessalonica, they are some good games.

21. Who is lamer, Isis, Zeus, Loki, or Oranos?


22. What is your favourite map and why?

Oasis is my favourite map because it's a clear map and I can be more focused on my game.

23. What god/strategy would you choose to win the following matchups:

Isis on Watering Hole: Zeus -> 2TC FM
Isis on Anatolia: Zeus -> Semi-FH
Zeus on Mediterranean: Isis -> FH at 6.45
Kronos on low hunt Oasis with forward gold: Zeus -> Athena at 4:00

24. There are many differing opinions about Thor being as good as he was once thought to be, why do you think this is and what is your take on Thor?

Thor is one of the best gods in the game: easy eco management, strong army, cheap armory ups, good on low hunt maps because of Dwarves, strong on high hunt maps because of Pig Sticker and also strong on water maps because of effective BOs for a fishing boom. If people used Thor wisely they would see the truth.

25. Which is the best lategame god? How do you counter this?

The best lategame god is Isis and I counter her with Siege and a Collosi spam when I play Zeus and I also try to gold block her of course.

26. Which player do you currently respect the most?


27. Which player do you like to play against the most?


28. Who is your best opponent?


29. For you, who is the hardest god to face?


30. Who will win the AoM tourney currently being played?


31. What is your take on the decreasing activity of ESO?

The game is getting old, that's a sure thing. But I think whoever wants a game can get a game, it isn't that hard to find one on ESO.

32. Will you play Starcraft II when it comes out and what is your opinion on this game?

I'm looking for a beta key atm so I can try it.

33. What is your favourite god power?


34. What is your favourite strategy?

Fast Mythic

35. Who is your favourite Zeus player?

No one in particular. I think I have my own style and I'm trying to improve it by fixing my mistakes.

36. Who is the best player all-time in your opinion?

I have only played AoT for 3 years so I can't say for all-time, but for the time I have played it's Nigam.

37. Who is your favourite rec provider?

I don't have any single favourite but I would have to say Nigam or SpOefT if I had to choose.

38. What is the lamest thing in AoM/AoT (not the lamest god, just the one thing you think is the most lame)?

AoT: Swifting Sands
AoM: Making a Wonder as Isis

39. Who is your best friend in AoT?

Hmmmm, hard question. I have many good friends, but I would have to say Burak a.k.a. lolzorz.

40. Who do you think is the funniest person who plays this game?


41. What is your favourite human unit?


42. What is your favourite myth unit?

Colossus of course! :D

43. What is your favourite hero?


44. What is your favourite minor god?

Athena, Goddess of Wisdom.

45. What do you think about the map Highland, a map that so many others dislike?

Cool map, I like it! But I am a Zeus player, ain't I?

46. What is your opinion on Classical TCs?

They shouldn't be allowed, it's better getting Heroic and then having access to TCs.

47. Most of us start off as noobs at some point, and granted that you've played other games and more importantly RTS games before AoT, but what was your gaming experience like either starting off at AoT or with maybe some of your previous RTS games?

When I started playing, I used Odin and I had 7 games and 7 wins in my first games on AoT playing on Intermediate Level. I managed to get 1700 with 100% wins and I felt pretty cool back then but it was too bad I lost to a Kronos rusher and I lost my 100% haha. I reached 1800 with loki_roki after playing for 1.5 months and got 1850 with the same account 1.5 months after that. Finally I got top 1 after 6 months with a 1906 rate if I remember correctly. I started by microing only, then thinking about strategy, then taking some eco ups,then more micro, more eco ups, and some more thinking, and eventually some lame and I gradually kept improving and I am still improving now.

48. Which god is the worst god in AoT, Odin or Gaia?

There is no worst god.

49. How do you view Forseti Hersir raiding?

Strong tactic but can be countered by a good push.still a forceti raid doesnt need much skill can be easy performed by anyone.

50. How do you view Isis classical fight?

Strong tactic that can be annoying.

51. Did anyone "teach" you at any portion of your "AoT career" or did you learn pretty much everything on your own?

AcD_Duimelot was a good teacher in my first steps of the game and Spoeft also gave me some tips about this. But most of my knowledge I got from watching thousands of recs and no jk I remember all the games I've watched and played.

52. What is your opinion on wall connectors?

People should use them but not overdo it.

53. What is your opinion on "lame" in general? What do you consider "lame"? Towers? Mercs? Athena rush? Bolt on Ulf? Arrow-firing buildings? Siege behind walls? Titans? Wonders? What else?

Lame is fun both to perform it or kill the guy who lames...Lame is spamming Chariots, spamming Towers, making 123123123 walls one in front of the other.

54. How do you get your Mino + Tox rush to work so well vs Norse? Are there any other civs you would you this against? Have you used it in any recent games?

I haven't lost with Mino + Toxo yet ever. I know when to strike, how to strike, where to fight, and mainly how to build my eco because if your enemy FHs you need a different eco than if he does CF. Restoration is also pretty vital in that combo and I know exactly when and where to use it. I haven't done a Mino + Toxo combo for a long time; I don't know if I feel like doing it anymore, easy wins are boring sometimes.

55. When did you first consider yourself an expert at this game?

After I got top 1 for the third time.

56. What is your favourite scenario if you do indeed play any scenarios?

Blood Sport because it helps me improve my micro.

57. What made you decide to join mG?

Friendly people and a cool leader.

58. What do you dislike the most about AoT?


59. Do you know any people from AoM/AoT in real life?

Yeah, I do. Most of X_Manner clan lives in my town so we keep in touch. I also know a Greek who lives in Germany; he came to to visit me here in Greece hehe. We played 2v2 for years, he and I :) Busbas his name.

60. What is your opinion on this discussed to death topic...old expert or new experts, who's better?

New experts by far.

Think of some things (mostly balance changes or changed on ESO) that you would like changed about this game:

1. Isis GP protection
2. Atty Villager producing time
3. Shooting Docks
4. Chariot Archer HP
5. Oranos Turmas' bonus speed
