Community Member of the Week: Sonofyue

27 July 2013

The Prime World Wiki is packed full of useful information about the game. We wanted to know more about our most active Wiki contributer, sonofyue.
 
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
 
I’m a 28-year-old Californian, I’m currently engaged, and I work as hydraulic mechanic technician. In my spare time, I love to play video games, especially the MOBA and MMO genres. I don’t look like it, but I’m extremely geeky. I love anime, manga, video games, TCGs, chess and the list can go on forever of all my geekiness. Ha ha!
 
What’s the story behind your name?
 
When I was 12 years old, I had to create my email and decide to make it “son of the moon.” Since I was a little kid, my dream was to visit the moon. I was always fascinated by how beautiful and mystical it is, but I wanted to hide the “moon” part. One day while I was watching anime, one of the character’s name was Yue, which meant moon in Chinese, so I thought it would be perfect for my email. Since then, I’ve been using “sonofyue” for everything.
 
You’ve been very active on the Prime World Wiki. Are you normally this active on Wikis?
 
Believe it or not it’s my first time ever contributing to a Wiki. I had no idea where to start or to edit. I had one of my friends show me some of the basics, and the rest I learned it from watching tutorials in YouTube.
 
How long have you played Prime World?
 
I been playing Prime World since the first week of the English closed beta.
 
Favorite hero?
 
Highlander/Immortal of course. He is the manliest man in the whole game.
 
Least favorite hero?
 
My least favorite hero is Cyro/Blizzard, especially when players build her tanky. She is a nightmare to kill.
 
Favorite mode?
 
I love Dragonwald. It’s like going on aa epic adventure to kill a dragon and save the kingdom, just so at the end you have to confront the bad guys of the movie and show them why you are the chosen one.
 
Least favorite mode?
 
Switcharoo is my least favorite because you could get stuck with a 1100 rating hero that you don’t know how to play.
 
How did you find out about the game?
 
It was thanks to MMOhut. They showed some gameplay, and it got me interested. Soon after, I started watching some streams from Tsuda and Russian gamers, and I couldn't wait to try it.
 
What was your first impression of the game?
 
The game blew me away. It was everything I ever wanted in a game: the heroes, the talents, the castle mechanic, the art, the lore, the mini-game and the community. Everything was just awesome, and I was instantly hooked.
 
What’s your favorite Prime World memory so far?
 
My favorite memory was when my friends and I got called “Russians Pro Gamers,” and since then, friends and I adopted the “Fake Russians” name.
 
Do you have any other hobbies?
 
I play TCGs with my co-workers. In our break, we will sit down and pull our decks and go at it.
 
Do you have any advice for newer players?
 
My advice for the new players is to enjoy the game and make friends. You will have a way better time playing with friends then by yourself. Never get discouraged for losing or by other people’s  behaviors. Remember you are playing this game to have fun.
 
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
 
If you are a new player and would like a helping hand, message me in-game. I will gladly help you. Me and my friends will be running groups to aid new players to have a better experience and give them helpful tips. If you are interested, go to the New Player forums and you will find a post there where you can find out more about it. Almost forgot:  Don't forget to join our “Fake” clan. Awesome people are always welcome.
