Medal of Competitive Edge - WNxFataalFrietje by WNxMrLippy
WNxMrLippy: Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule of beating me at C&C:3 to do this interview WNxFataalFrietje!
WNxFataalFrietje: Any time mate, any time.
WNxMrLippy: So for those that don't know you, how about we start by getting your name and where you're from?
WNxFataalFrietje: Well, my name is Arjan, but most of you know me as FataalFrietje. I'm from The Netherlands, best country in the world imo.
WNxMrLippy: Well it is the home of Amsterdam, of course it is!
WNxMrLippy: For us non-dutch spreaking folk, what does FataalFrietje mean?
WNxFataalFrietje: It means Fatal French Frie, it was just a random name that I came up with when I wanted to change my WN name, which previously was WNx Mc kroket.
WNxMrLippy: That is pretty random dude! You must of had some serious potato cravings when you came up with that!
WNxMrLippy: So I recently found an interview you did back in October 2007.
WNxMrLippy: How are you coming along with your world domination?
WNxFataalFrietje: Pretty well, my minions are well set up and almost finished their world domination training. Shortly you will notice my powahz.
WNxMWDeez: Okay... Uh... Did you set any goals for yourself when you joined, and if so, what were they, did you reach them, and are there any more you would like to achieve?
WNx Mc kroket: Having fun, and world domination!!!
WNxFataalFrietje: How do you enjoy being one of my many minions?
WNxMrLippy: Well I thought we where keeping it a secret, people were already getting suspicious of the amount of time we spend on C&C:3 practising our strategies and mad skills.
WNxMrLippy: Anyway back on track! What do you do in your spare time?
WNxFataalFrietje: Besides playing games and browsing the forums I occasionally sleep and feed myself. I really enjoy playing football, the real football not the one where you hold a non-ball shaped ball with your hands.
WNxMrLippy: (For our American brothers, he means 'Soccer')
WNxMrLippy: You see, I know the important words. Us English aren't all just Tea and Queen mixed with bad Dental Care you know!
EASILY OFFENDED DO NOT EXPAND.
WNxMrLippy: So since being admin you are also subject to the 5 sided forum called the Pentagon. If you could describe that forum in 5 words, what would they be?
WNxFataalFrietje: Secret, confidential, classified, private and concealed.
WNxMrLippy: Ok we get the picture!
WNxMrLippy: So you obviously enjoy your gaming. You where a Halo 3 MLG pro competitor I might add. How did you get involved with Warrior Nation?
WNxFataalFrietje: Well, it's a pretty funny story. It all started with Chrome Hounds, an Xbox 360 game, also the first Xbox 360 game that reached Development. I just bought a new Xbox 360 with Chrome Hounds, and I was looking for a squad to join, I saw a WarriorNation squad so I joined it. I met up with WNxMariachi and WNxGutBomb, they are no longer in WN. When I joined the first time I got kicked out as they though I wasn't motivated. I joined again and they let me in, I instantly registered on the website and I loved it! The day I joined was also the day of the funeral of my Grandmothers Mother, Great Grand Mother I believe it's called in English.
WNxMrLippy: A sad day in your family history, a great day for Warrior Nation!
WNxMrLippy: So as we know, you are the Colonel of Battle Operations over Console. How do you find that?
WNxFataalFrietje: I find it very fun to do, you get to work with a team and basically help people have more fun with the game they play, the section they are in and being on forums in general. And that is what this gaming clan is actually all about, gaming and enjoying yourself while playing with clan mates.
WNxMrLippy: So before Battle Operations Colonel, you where a Commissioner and Captain. You have served most aspects of Warrior Nation within Battle Operations, and that is why you have been awarded the Medal of Competative edge!
WNxMrLippy: How did you feel when you noticed you where nominated?
WNxFataalFrietje: I was happy my work didn't go unnoticed but in reality it wouldn't even have been possible without help from a lot of people, FV, Mouse, JokazWild, Karsh and you of course.
WNxMrLippy: Did you ever think when you were a Battle Operations Captain that you would have received the most prestigious Battle Operations award?
WNxFataalFrietje: Never really, I didn't have high expectations as I was Battle Operations Captain for Halo 3, I had many ideas but the interest wasn't there and the section was slowly dying which made hosting events and tournaments hard. I was surprised when FatalVirus offered me a position as Commisioner, with JokazWild at that point being Battle Operations Colonel.
WNxMrLippy: So if you could give any advice back to the members in the Battle Operations Captain position that you were once in, what would it be?
WNxFataalFrietje: Stay motivated, it's a hard job at first, it is really hard for a captain to create enthusiasm for events and you can't expect to have perfect turn outs every event. Many people think that after 1 or 2 events didn't go very well that they are not doing a good job but in reality it will always take time, especially when you are a new captain and still learning the ropes. If you stay motivated and show enthusiasm for the events you set up members will become motivated to participate too.
WNxMrLippy: That is great advice!
WNxMrLippy: Lastly, have you got any shout-outs to make?
WNxFataalFrietje: Where to start..
WNxFataalFrietje: Jason, Andrew, FatalVirus, Thinkerbell, JokazWild, Turbo Killer because he will never read this, DreadBot, Josh, Mouse, DarkNyte, Ben the sneaky riot shield noob, basically all MW2 EU/Black Ops EU (360) members, Phil, Sco, MaliciousWolf, and probably a lot more. Sorry if I forgot anyone....forgive me.
WNxMrLippy: They will never forgive you.
WNxMrLippy: Arjan it has been an absolute pleasure i'm sure this will make great reading. Thank you for your time.
WNxFataalFrietje: Thank you for having me.
