Interview with «|US|»Narko

1 It has been almost two years since you were appointed as acting-leader in US. How has it been, what have been the highs and lows personally for you?

Being part of the leadership of «|US|» has been, and still is, great. I have been in this clan since I started playing Swat 4, and leading it with my two best friends in the game, is awesome. Of course there have been ups and downs, the worst parts being when good friends leave the clan to join other clans, or leaving because they quit playing the game. Naming the best parts is hard, since 95% of the time has been good. But I guess the best times has been playing and having fun with friends for thousands of hours. And of course, making new friends through the game as well.

2 Apart from ViP, which other game mode do you prefer if any (and why)?

I don't play as much as I used to, so a majority of the time is being spent playing VIP Escort on our server. From time to time though, I do enjoy a game of BS or RD, but I am 99,9% VIP player.

3 The never-ending debate about which version is better – 1.0 or 1.1; what is your view on this?

I don't know which is better, and it's not a big issue for me. I know that there is some very good 1.1 players out there. But I also know that there are very good 1.0 players. As I mentioned before in the comments section to news concerning this issue, the biggest problem for me in all this is the arrogance that alot of the 1.1 players have. Very few of them acknowledge that there are very skilled people in 1.0, and just writes all of us off as noobs that have no idea what we are doing. But it's no secret that I hope that my friends in 3A wins the tournament, since that, hopefully, will make the 1.1 players appreciate that 1.0 has skill as well.

4 As a co-leader how do you avoid recruiting clan-jumpers who have the sole aim to obtain a high rank and admin power?

Simple, we don't give high ranks or admin powers to anyone new in the clan. Everyone will start at a low rank, and work their way up. «|US|» has had this rule as long as I can remember, and we will keep using it in the future. Of course there can be cases where this will be disregarded, but they are few and far between.

5 If one of your friends was caught on UAC, would you do what most seem to do and give them a second chance (with a clean second account)?

It's hard to say. It would depend very much on the case in hand, who it is, what the excuse is and so on. There are some people that u know with certainty, wouldn't have any hacks laying around on their PC without them knowing about it, and there are people that possibly wouldn't know about it if they had a downloaded game. That being said, I don't appreciate hackers, and thankfully, I have never faced this situation.

6 What is your opinion of SoH vip clan, and do you feel sorry for their junior members who do not have a clue as to the activities of the guys above them (clan control)?

I don't really want to interfere with what SoH does, and how they do it. That's up to them to decide. All I can say is that they can hardly be clueless about the issues. They must have heard about it by now.

7 Have you been following the ViP Premier League? If so, who do you think will be the champions?

I have been following it a little bit, and in my opinion, it will all be decided in the final match between hfbc and 3A. They seem to be the two best teams.
