Now for the interview This week it is with Cdm5519

Q: Welcome,cdm5519. Would you mind giving some background on yourself? Where you started TW and such?

A: Hi, I am 55 YO granddad of 3 boys. 6 children 4 yet to reproduce. I started on world 5 finally quit when our tribe won the world, Joined 17. I have been playing for approximately 3-4 years.

Q: Well then, would you happen to remember what world you started on?

A: World 17 since it started.

Q: How long have you been playing TW? w17?

A: I have been playing for approximately 3-4 years s I said earlier

Q: How do you feel about beaing the number two player in W17?

A: Can’t seem to build enough nobles. I am semi retired so it gives me something to do in my many spare hours.

Q: were you the one who started the account?

A: Yes I started the account.

Q: What other worlds do you currently play/have you previously played? How would you compare those worlds to w17?

A: World 17 history is a long one. Many good tribes have come and gone. Many friends have quit. Yes at war, It has basically come down to 2 sides. I feel the opposition is in a sense of disarray and this world will be closing soon.

Q: Is your tribe at war right now? With who?

A: Why at war. Name of the game and personality clashes.

Q: What is your favorite aspect of TribalWars? Least favorite?

A: Favorite part. Have met online many nice people and several rude ones. Would enjoy seeing tribal wars put together a convention. However I think that will not happen due to diversity of the worldwide memberships.

Q: Where are you from?

A: I am from Illinois in the USA and am in the automobile trade working with Chrysler.

Q: What do you do outside of TW?

A: I still work part time and enjoy my time with my wife Linda my children and the grand children.

Q: How would you describe your playing style?

A: Playing style. I am normally not the aggressor. Prefer to support my tribemates. I am methodical I would rather wear you down then pick your villages off 1 by one.

Q: Could you give us an idea of your w17 history? (past tribes, etc)

A: History. Basically I started with E Ran by a wonderful lady and her father. He became ill and had to leave. Became friends with Shinra. Great guy and joined MOJO. Mojo had some power struggles and splits. Mojo was disbanding and I could not in good faith join Wisdom which fell apart. I felt My loyalty could only go to those who had the same idea as myself to see Wisdom go away. So I joined BA in my quest.

Q: What skill or thing that you have learned in your lifetime has helped you the most in TW?

A: Skills. I am by far not the smartest player in this game. Maybe the most online but not the smartest. I give my hat off to those people who have developed the programs to make this game easier. They are the heros of this game to see it constantly advancing instead of becoming stagnet.

Q: Do you have a leadership role in the BA?

A: I am not a leader nor do I seek that position.

Q: How is you war against HaV progressing? How would you compare it to other wars you’ve fought?

A: HAV war is going well. BA and the united tribes are commited and active. Just a matter of time before it is over.

Q: Wisdom is one of the oldest family tribe still hanging around w17. Family or not, longer than many other tribes that have split up and fallen apart. Have HaV done anything special to maintain their unity as a tribe?

A: HAV war is going well. BA and the united tribes are commited and active. Just a matter of time before it is over.

Q: What updates or improvements would you like to see come to TW?

A: Improvements. I believe the members themselves are making the improvements. I am happy the way things are. I would like to see them perhaps put 17 in the final phase to build nobles quicker.

Q: Do you have any tips or pointers for folks who want to be as powerful as you to follow?

A:Tips. The way to success is to stay active and aware. If you can not be online get a sitter.

Q: Thanks a lot for joining me for this interview

A: Thanks for asking me to be a part of your blog.
