ABOUT HIM

_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
rvk viper names good bt not real, whats ur real name?


[RVK]TheViper says:
My real name is secret Only the closest to me gets to know it ^^ Don't want 200 new facebook friends commenting AOC stuff on my wall! I'm a cool guy IRL!



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
ok great.....11....the secret pro huh


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
tell me a bit about urself


[RVK]TheViper says:
11 ,yeah sure


[RVK]TheViper says:
I come from Norway. I'm 19 years old. I currently work at the Gym at the place where I live, where I instruct people and help people in any way they'd need help with their training etc. The spare time I use on playing football(soccer), hanging with friends and of course, AOC

ABOUT AOC

At age 10/11, my dad, ppl know him as PkZ who's also the creator of AOCZone, introduced me to AOE1. I saw him playing, and wanted to try it. I quickly got addicted, and moved on to AOE2 with my dad and my uncle also playing. AOC came too, and when I played online, beating guys and then let them know my age, noone ever believed it 11, was really fun for me. At one point I got introduced to DM and CS. At DM the highest I got was 2k, RM I can't remember, and CS was the last stop for me at that time. I had a lot of fun in CS playing AOC LOTR games, which made me move on to LOTR BFME after that. I'm sure I was top 20 there, and then to BFME 2 where I held the top spot for some weeks, untill the ladders kept getting reseted there. After that, it finished probably around 2007 I stopped playing for a while. Then I saw my dad doing some aoc stuff around 2009, and I figured, why not play aoc again, it's fun! So I started playing again mid/end 2009.


[RVK]TheViper says:
I only did LN at start, getting 2k there, but then in the start of 2010 I started FR, and then a little later Ara too, and got pretty decent there. In 2011 so far, I've done good, reaching 2330 at most in the rating ^^ so I'm pretty pleased with my level atm. I'm sure if I put in some extra effort I could get higher and beat tops more often, but for now it's just about having fun!



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
Any other games you play, or any tournaments.


[RVK]TheViper says:
Other games I play on the side if I need to spend some time are Football Manager, Pro Cycling Manager, FIFA and ocassionally COD.



[RVK]TheViper says:
Never did any money tournaments or any of that kind, so nothing to tell there



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
So 2.6k quite a huge rating.....tell us what it takes to reach 2k.....and then the bigger milestone....2.5k


[RVK]TheViper says:
That's if you count the overall rating! Well for my part, how I improved was, just playing lots of games, and adapting fast. I watched some experts records, got some Building orders printed in my head, and started practicing. Basically just training your speed, knowing the game, what to do when, and what units to make when and increasing your knowledge of the game is important. Also watching your own recs, see what you did wrong, and try not to do the same the next time!


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
Nice, so whats ur favourite strat and why?


[RVK]TheViper says:
My favourite strat.. hmm. I don't really have a favourite.


[RVK]TheViper says:
I like games with action all over, where you fihgt on water and land at the same time. So no real favourite strats, just games that end up really fun, no matter what strat you do.


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm.nice again


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
DauT,Riut,halen,grunt,kkab,kmkm,chris,dogao,jordan,or any other ---- who ur favourite??


[RVK]TheViper says:
I wasn't around at the peak time of most of the guys, so I can't really tell by history who were the greatest that way. But as persons, dogao and riut seems really nice. Jordan is also top top! But in terms of greatness ingame, Daut is the best player I have faced. My favourite of all AOC players though! GEEN aka _Ares_ We have a lot of fun!



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
So in early aoc days who was ur inspiration/teacher....


[RVK]TheViper says:
Well, for me, early days would be around 2009. I was too young and too careless to bother when I played at first. So when I started playing again, it must be sletten kind of. He was the top Norwegian at that time, and I got into the norwegian/scandinavian gang very early with joining BuzZ. Sletten was the one I wanted to beat, but he always kicked my ass too easy at start. Hell, even ZapNap owned my ass! 11 After I started practicing FR and Arabia, I got better and a new thinking way in 1v1, and started beating sletten now and then.
Now ofcourse, I kill him 50 out of 50 games. So, that's kind of the way he was my inspiration, I wanted to kill him!! 11


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm.....unusual choice bt great


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
Which do u think is the Best aoc clan out there?? and why


[RVK]TheViper says:
I think BuzZ is the best clan. Everyone in there are great guys, always acting nice to others (except sletten) and respecting them. The skills are up and down, but the persons, TOP! I value a 1600 acting really nice more than a 2k6 acting like a superstar.


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm....and about skill, most skilled clan


[RVK]TheViper says:
Well, I've got to say RVK! ^^ Even though Tyrant is building up a great team, if RVK team got to play more together, I think we'd definately be the best clan skillwise.


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm....what other clans u have been in?


[RVK]TheViper says:
The only clan I remember being in from the early early days, was KoTR (Knights of the Realm). There I was named KoTR_HuNtEr, I was also a part of Th3 clan, named Th3_Boy_, because I was so young ^^ And since the return, it's BuzZ, and RVK. And float, if you count it! ^^


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
k, nice.


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
any particular rec u wish to suggest everyone to watch?


[RVK]TheViper says:
I haven't had any of those "wow this is the best rec I have ever seen" moments. But checking out the classics section on AocZone wouldn't hurt anyone Many GREAT games there!



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm...good suggestion


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
so whats ur favourite map,civ???


[RVK]TheViper says:
My favourite civ is definately Huns. Living without houses is a pleasure indeed! My favourite map must be Islands or Baltic! Great maps!


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm nice choices again...im really liking u as a person


[RVK]TheViper says:
Right back at you! Even with your rusty english! ^^


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm...thanks


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
drush-fc-ca the ultimate combination, any counter to it???


[09] [RVK]TheViper says:
I think getting a fast up, 21 pop 22 pop, getting scouts fast to beat off his Militias, followed by a forward tower / ranges and keeping him under pressure would be the solution. His FC would lose the advantage if you can set him under pressure and weaken him before castle, or he's got to stay in feudal. So I guess not giving him a healthy FC would be the trick.



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
nice reply to that.....enough aoc

OFF TOPIC

_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
one question really hit my mind randy orton pic, john cena type earlier name u a big wwe fan???


[RVK]TheViper says:
11


[RVK]TheViper says:
Well, I used to watch some before
but keeping up with it took too much of my time, so I stopped now but I liked it when I came back to aoc, so that's where the nick came from.



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
hmm.......nice


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
any last words for your fans?


[RVK]TheViper says:
I have fans? 11


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
any last words for me?


_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
im ur fan


[RVK]TheViper says:
11, okey um


[RVK]TheViper says:
Well, KEEP PLAYING AOC, keep it alive! GL HF, most importantly, HF!



[RVK]TheViper says:
Looking forward to all our next games, whoever you are!



_CsK_Im_NoT_DrG says:
