Long Form Answers
Improvising, and carrying teammate
I always hated NWTR, and considered that my least confident map
If you could change one thing about War2 what would it be?
Hacking of course
On old gow, 15 peon rush lust or grunt rush with 2 sappers. On xmarks, juggernaut rush
Anything you regret?
Never using just 1 name/account, because it always felt like nobody knew me. I also taught several players, but the most regretful was Bam. He would tell people he was self-taught
I once used alt accounts on Cases IGL to give myself points that I would've earned if players in the top 15 would've reported their losses. I was frustrated of being robbed wins
Most memorable games/times?
The first time I beat the guy who taught me how to play. A guy named itlog on IRC, aka Premier on heat.net introduced and taught me how to play the game
What makes you memorable?
I don't think anything makes me memorable because I never stuck to one name for long periods of time.
Who was the best of all time?
Nobody really. One thing that I really enjoyed about Warcraft2 was that there were so many good players, and we all had our moments of being the top player
Describe your “career” from start to finish.
Started on Heat.NET as DKsHaro, later became ~haro. I was around 12 or 13 years old, and within a 4-5 months I was beating the best players on there. When battle.net came out, the amount of good players grew a lot. Then I met DABLACKPANTHA, also known as Kassa, who helped me take my game to the next level. I saw most of my success in the late 90s and early 00s. I was robbed a lot of wins on Cases IGL from players not reporting their losses. Placed high on the US East battle.net ladder, borrowed a friend my war2 cd and he lost it, and missed out on a better placement. Next season the ladder was full of dodgers and boosted accounts. That's around the time I started regularly using alt accounts and finding games in the 24-7 channel, and the start of when the player known as ~haro went into obscurity
