Sup M4 Fans, vahnmanx here with a new series that features some of the prominent players in the monster maestro.
Today we talk to the number 1 ranked player in the Island Overlord Event that happened a few weeks ago: Kesohnler, who dished out over 206,000,000 damage to the raid bosses! Read on to find how the leader of the Light crew does in normal battles! Thank you Kesohnler for graciously taking your time to answer my questions!
Oh did I mention that Light has taken over Nocturnal for the first time in Moonlight Spookhouse’s crew rankings as the new number 1 spot.
Here we go!
(vahnmanx’s comments are in italics)
1. Where do you live?
Singapore (Asian people love their monster card games ;)
2. What do you currently do?
Personal & Confidential. Can’t answer that sorry but I am a working adult 🙂
3. What got you into Monster Maestro/why do you like playing it?
I got to know about MM through Applibot’s other game Legend of the Cryptids, and decided to give it a try. Didn’t like it at first but the more I played the more addicted I got to it. It is the very interesting cartoony graphics and monsters design that caught my attention.
4. What do you enjoy most about Monster Maestro?
I enjoyed card trading, it is after all a card trading game.
5. You were the number 1 finish in Island Overlord. What did it take to get to number 1?
It took complete devotion and commitment to the game during that event period,
6. How much did you play during Island Overlord?
There were even a few days when I spent 12 hours straight (with short breaks in between of course) just tapping away on my iPhone to get my points up and then to maintain it. It was extremely tedious and intensive, for a game, haha.
7. What crew are you a part of? What do you like most about your current crew? Dislike most?
I am the leader of Light. I love my fellow crew members, many of whom were specially recruited and invited by myself to join the crew. We communicate very well with each other and we are all team players. There is nothing I dislike about my crew.
8. What is your favourite monster in the game and why?
My current favorite monster is the evolved version of Fauven, Fauvagara because it has a skill that makes it extremely useful in both frontline setups as its skill affect all cards regardless of elements or be it Atk or Def.
9. What is your favourite monster you like for competitive battling?
Same as above, and for this very same reason, I made it skill lvl 10 🙂
10. What do you think about the game’s economy right now?
Nothing much to comment but I think there definitely needs to be a lot more new players introduced to the game, so there will be more people trading.
(Coincidentally part of M4’s goals, to build up the community of MM)
11. Your thoughts on the community of players currently? compared to other games you’ve played?
This is my 1st real card trading game (LOC not counted since I don’t even bother trading in that and am quitting soon) and to be honest I am surprised at the number of incidents of scamming in game. I am utterly against scamming and have reported scammers before. I only wish players can use their real skills and efforts to get the cards they want rather than scam for them as they may have scammed other players who used their hard earned pocket money or work money to get those cards.
12. How good a job do you think the MM admin team is handling the game including new updates? Elaborate if you can.
I think the developers are not doing a very good job at this moment because the game is plagued with bugs and frequently crashed due to unstable server issues. And they need to make it slightly more friendly for trading too like to give the players the option to select multiple cards at 1 time selection rather than 1 card by 1 card as it can be very frustrating and waste of time.
(I don’t fully agree with this comment, as I think the developers are putting in some A+ effort, despite their shortcomings, but this is about Kesohnler, more on that later from me 🙂
13. What type of abilities would you like to see in the game moving forward?
No real expectation but maybe something interesting like having an ability that will help in replenishing your energy and Atk/Def points at a faster rate?
14. What advice do you have for those who are trying to obtain more valuable super rares and ultra rares?
My advice will be for them to learn the full mechanics of the game first, build up their frontline and start collecting high stats rares and start then finally actively trading. My first knowledge to trading comes when I just went to the message board and announced that I was willing to trade everything in my deck and for everybody to view my deck and just send trades. I then take a look at the trades sent and accept or reject accordingly.
You never know you may have something that you thought was useless to you but of great value to another player and he may just offer you something amazing for it.
15. What the total attack power you do in battle is? (with boosts)?
Can’t tell you the exact figure as that’s confidential to me, but it is definitely above 200k damage. 🙂 (damn that’s high!)
And that’s a wrap for the first top player interview! Let me know which players you would liked to see interviewed next! I am pretty picky though as I have my own criteria as well.
