  hib hot  040521  

I am posting this latest Interview with hibSTER of SR on the front page because it is FRONT PAGE news for the manly man:) It was my honour to talk with hib and I look back on this interview now and wish I had asked hib some other questions....but this little bit of love will have to sufffice for now: just read all the love that hib can bring:)


Ok first off, tell the people what your most gratifying victory has been? Was it with Zetor, TVs or with SR?

<]SR[hib> Oh boy. That?s a tough one. From the Zetor time I remember clearly NQR final against Hellfire ofcooz?and Villains? game agains SK when they had kane,griffin,akke and mr.x cant remember who the 4th player was. Purity will I am sure?TVS time just blurrs by me?.
and in Slackers the games vs Disorder and Cmf in the NQR finals
where CMF was leading 2-0 in the final and we just kept grinding at took the game 2-3
the game vs DS where we were leading 2-0? and we had confortable lead in dm2
we just "stopped" playing and they managed to win that and the very next map.

Hib, I have followed you in qw for a long time. I see you as the one of the most dominating players ever, as do many of your current opponents. What I'd like to know is whether you see yourself as necessary to SR to win another NQR championship?

<]SR[hib> Well he haven?t been that active this season. Only playing couple rounds 4n4 here and there but Gamer and Goljat have been active in 2n2 tournaments and so on. We just need to play our own game and not get too passive?. if Gamer and Goljat do their jobs I?m sure we will do well.

But, do you think SR would win without you?

<]SR[hib> Let me answer that in this way xhrl: if any of our 4 regular line up men would be missing that would surely reduce our chances of winning! Gamer?s been hot this season so i really think if he keeps it up
we have a very good chance of winning. [ed. Note: hib has humility]

Think back to the 90's up to now: if you could put together a top squad for 4v4 of Finns, who would you consider putting on that squad, Hib, if you were the Finnish 'coach'?

<]SR[hib> First off, I would have to take Jaguar from good'ol Zetor!!! He was an awesome quadrunner and very calm player overall. Next one would be blaze from tvs; another calm player with a good sense of whats going on around the map --- although he could read team msg?s a bit better: and that goes for all tvs players :) just for the record! Two more to go ... probably I would go for Gamer: he can do pretty much anything you tell him to do; he is such a solid choice. Now I am going to be a bit biased and take Goljat for the 4th one.

So jaguar, blaze, gamer and goljat.

<]SR[hib> Yup all who with I have played with over these many years.

Now having faced off against many northern europeans in qwtdm, could you give me an idea of those teams and players who were the biggest pain in the ass to play against?

<]SR[hib> Euthanasia for sure was our arch-enemy back in 98-99: hixen,gemma and their minions alwayz put up a helluva fight! Then cmf (with dama,fifi,zhin,xxx) were always tough to play against. The hellfire guys (brain,muti,madmax,mrlame) to name a few were very challenging to play.

Was FF a tough clan to play?

<]SR[hib> Well the funny thing is when Zetor was in its prime we tried to play against FF numerous times, but they would never accept challenge vs us. Soon after that, zetor went dead for a time, and FF started to dominate qw scene. At that time i didnt have any isp/connection so i kinda missed some of the FF?s era. I just have one memory playing against FF and that was when i was trying out for tvs. They were tough to play, but i dont recall any epic battels against them.

I would have loved to see your current SR squad go against the old FF top line of akke exile dag and pietro: for such a match would probably need a lot of cams. Do you see the current LA team as a team as tough to beat as the old FF squad?

<]SR[hib> If i remember right FF "always" played on LAN so they had mm3 back in those days and they somewhat changed the gameplay to more aggressive?but that said i think the old FF was more of a team than just 4 very skilled individuals trying to do their own thing. So, yes, I?d say the old FF would be tougher.

Of all the clans you've been in which was the one wherein you felt the teamplay and tactics were most solid?

<]SR[hib> I have to go with Slackers on this one. Sure we did have solid tactics in Zetor (e.g., get weapon and camp spot X) but I dont think that qualifies for the best tp & tactics :) In SR we just know most of the time what other?s are doing and ?.. that said you know what u should do to make something happen

hib, which players in qwtdm now are the biggest pain to play? Is it slime and LA or mrl and bgsr or blaz, ihmn and tvs? or EQ? or some other squad?

<]SR[hib> Clan DIVA comes to my mind and they haven?t even been playing that much lately. They play very "tight" game all the time; it?s hard to get frags against them.

Is the challenge map related? like riker on e1m2 or fifi on dm3, etc.?

<]SR[hib> No not really, it?s more of what kinda tactic team/s take. Though single players i would point out as being difficult to play against are: spoink,dare,harvester?.they all can play quite ?weird or sneaky-bastard? qw :) For example, Dare is well known for his sng camping. Harvester sure knows how to camp the RA with pineapples and Spoink is also one sneaky bastard! So these players don?t need much to play with and still can do a lot of damage to you if you are not aware of them.

If you could set the NQR 7 map pool, which 5 maps would you select for use?

<]SR[hib> dm2,e1m2,dm3,cmt1b; cmt3 or cmt4

Now about other gamemodes; I know you play a little 1v1, but have you ever played much qwctf lately or in the past?

<]SR[hib> Funny that u mentioned it. I just joined SSC?s ctf section today. So i will be doing some hooking in the future if its up to me. I played some ctf like 6months ago and i was a huge fan of ?orange? ctf?
hehe, wow. hib and milton playing on the same ctf squad:) Will SSC see you in tdm as well?

<]SR[hib> Well you never know what might happen; but for now its only CTF in SCC cozz other Slackers aren?t that into ctf. Btw, i just got word from oozi that my ctf debut is tonight!

Well hib I will end by giving you and your team my best wishes for strength and honour in the NQR 6 Finals versus LA! But first could you teaCHme the way to say goodbye in Finnish?

<]SR[hib> n?kemiin

your personal data, computer specs, do you love hockey and kipper etc.?

<]SR[hib> Lasse Parviainen age:23 Varkaus
Like hockey? No, not really im into weights? in fact, i like the nba better. I have an Athlon xp+1700 , Radeon 8500, mx310 Logitech mouse. The best sport though to watch is UFC,Pride,K-1, WPT :)

heh, is it legal in finland to like basketball more than hockey? :P Is kipper not the man these days?

<]SR[hib> u mean kiprusof? Calgary?s gay goaltender who shut Detroit DAMN! I was a Brett Hull fan when I was younger. He?s the man when it comes to ice hockey?Hull all the way:> St.Louis! Oates+Hull gooooals :>

Ok that will do hib, thanks for taking the time!

<]SR[hib> No problemo!
