So mga kapatid, we at Pinoygaming.net have passed the gauntlet and got our readers an interview with Team Thailand, the Ragnarok World Champions of 2008. They looked like a pretty lively bunch, and why wouldn’t they? They just won!
We began the interview with a preliminary “warning” of sorts, well more like an invitation to relax. We were talking to the translator so this interview’s format will be a bit non standard. So here we go!
Pinoygaming: We pinoys are known for our joyful nature even in adversity, especially gamers. So in that spirit, don’t be surprised to be asked the weirdest questions.
Team Thailand: *All smiles*
Pinoygaming: If your pet can learn to play Ragnarok, what job would you have it take?
Team Thailand:*All start laughing – translator comes back and gives us the answer* Cat – Gypsy; Fish – Gypsy, Dog – Lord Knight
Pinoygaming: The moment you stepped off the plane as you arrived in the Philippines, what did you smell?
Team Thailand: *burst out in laughter with one guy trying to compose himself, then they yell* BEEF!
Pinoygaming: What specs do your PCs have? Are you guys AMD or Intel?
Team Thailand: *2 guys say amd, the rest intel* In Thailand, Intel has more promotions but AMD is promoted as a product for gamers.
Pinoygaming: If you come back to the Philippines, what would you wear?
Team Thailand: *One dude nods his head and declares SWIMSUIT then everybody starts laughing* We’ll wear traditional Thai costume.
Pinoygaming: Have you learned any Filipino words?
Team Thailand: Salamat
Pinoygaming: What ragnarok skill do you hate?
Team Thailand: *They are having trouble with the translation* Coma
Pinoygaming: Now for something more controversial. Do you guys use bots?
Team Thailand: *One yells* Yes! I like bot! In Thailand we really do.
Pinoygaming: Do you guys have PVP expressions like ASA here in the Philippines?
Team Thailand: We don’t trashtalk, we use emoticons like /gg
Pinoygaming: How does it feel to be back to back champions?
Team Thailand: To become the champion is not that difficult, defending the title is.
Pinoygaming: Congratulations guys, and thank you for your time.
