Long Form Answers
Intuition (it had better be after this long)
Probably helping allies in the early game. It's more fun just getting huge :D
If you could change one thing about War2 what would it be?
It would of like this game to have been released later so there could of been more players. That way, there could of been bigger tournaments with real prizes.
Anything you regret?
I think the time I spent playing this game was inversely proportional to my marks at one time or another.
None. I've never hacked. I've never win traded. I've never took any fake wins for IGL ladder. I've never disc'ed. I take my losses, and I'll AV anyone, even if it was a 1 on 1. It's just a game, and I keep it that way.
Thoughts on debatable issues
I would really like to try this game with bloodlust costing 100-150 mana. I'd have to play test it to see what number would work. Lust would no longer be a cast and go type spell. Even faster IS more fun to play than fastest.
Most memorable games/times?
Any games that end in a tie are memorable. I've had a few on 4 corners, and 1 on Maze. The most memorable time would be when Kali IGL ladder was very active. 500+ teams, and 2000+ players on single ladder. Kali St.Louis 1 and 2 were always full. The other really fun time to play was when I first started. I would constantly get beat down by Kith, but it was lots of fun. I got revenge later by not telling him about the lumber bug :D.
What makes you memorable?
(See accomplishments above). I also am the webmaster of the most popular War2 page, http://www.warcraft.org/war2/ . I'll also try to help anyone out, and am generally a nice guy.
How did you get your name?
When I first started playing War2 online, I was looking for a cool name, that was original. I came across 'Axolotl' and it fit all the criteria. Just check out this page... http://www.axolotl.com/about/what.html and you'll see why. External gills, regnerating limbs, Aztecan God of Games. I couldn't ask for anymore in a name.
Who was the best of all time?
You (whoever is reading this) are not the best player of all time. There is no 'best' player of all time. If you were to get the best players together, they would beat each other back and forth. But on single player would ever dominate in the group. It's just the nature of the game. Just think if there were another...let's say 250,000 players playing this game. Think about how many good players there would be then...
Describe your “career” from start to finish.
When I first started playing online, we mostly played on TGN. A local gaming service that was offered in this city. All of my favorite were players on there. Me and Kith then started playing pickup games on Kali. Eventually, we started playing team IGL ladder and everything just went from there. It was my winning streak on igl singles that made me 'famous'. I just kept on playing because the game was fun, and eventually decided it would be best if I could unload all of this useless information about the game onto a webpage.
