At Bandit Gang, the end of the year means the end of year interviews. All members are put to the test one by one about the events of the past year that shaped them. Private as well as business. In these interviews in which no mince of words will be stated, no taboos exist, sometimes harsh words are used and where you get a nice insight into the soul life of the interviewee.
Babyjosus: Sit down and relax next to the fireplace Zubi. And of course I want to congratulate you with your 300 followers on Twitch first. You are relatively new to the scene so that’s a great achievement. I only know you for a short time period because you joined us recently so I am curious to hear how the year 2020 was for you.
Zubedoo: Thank you! I am very thankful for reaching 300 followers. And yeah, 2020 has been quite dull initially obviously because of the Covid breakout, but it was great for me as I graduated from Computer Science Engineering and also joined the wonderful Gwent Community So overall its been great, but I am sure it could have even better if not for the breakout.
BJ: Oh I have to congratulate you on graduating from that as well then. And like you said you joined the Gwent community this year. So what made you join the team?
Z: Easy, the members. The day I entered this community you guys were one of the first ones I stumbled upon and I knew you guys are amazing and more than anything, I am super grateful of the opportunity given by you guys for me to stream under your banner and do stuff in the Gwent community.
BJ: That’s great to hear obviously. And would you be able to tell about your funniest moment on stream this year?
Z: It happened to me a couple weeks ago, MrLeams sent me a pic of Matta Hurri with my face pasted on hers and I put it on screen, at the same time Thea raided me and everyone saw it 🙂
BJ: I wonder if you have ever seen MattaJosus then… but back to you. I know you do a lot of collaborations with other people on stream, what do you like so much about doing that?
Z: For me the streaming of Gwent isn’t all about the game, I want to entertain people and keep the chat happy as much as I can. Co-ops tend to have a flair that solo streams can’t because there tends to be more interaction and flavors added from multiple streamers.
BJ: Yeah, I have done many collaborations in the past as well and even left some people in tears, referring to Driftbling and KingDenpai here, because they couldn’t handle it. But I have always enjoyed doing them. And I don’t know you that well, could you tell me something about yourself?
Z: Well I am an Indian boy, born and raised and I love to play video games and socialize with people. I never take anything to heart and always take most things in a positive stride. As a person, I just want to be kind and do what is the best not just for myself but my friends and family as well.
BJ: I see that Mercernn is getting some competition for being the kindest member of the team. And now 2020 is almost over. Is there anything that you would like to do next year?
Z: Would love to do well in my work and also become a bigger streamer! 😀
BJ: I hope you can achieve that. And what work do you do if I may ask?
Z:I do Software work in front end, back end, data analysis, coding. The whole package basically.
BJ: Oh, so you are an IT guy. What do you like about your work?
Z: The fact that learning doesn’t stop and it always evolves. It never gets old as well and its a challenge to keep up with it. So many things change every day.
BJ: That’s great. And do you have any new year’s resolutions?
Z: Resolutions are usually something I do not keep but I would say it is to always do better than before and improve myself in anything and everything I do.
BJ: Fair enough. Anything you want to say to the reader in anticipation of 2021?
Z: I hope Corona is gone before April 2021.
BJ: Oh, you have some plans in april 2021?
Z: Its just a time period that I want corona to end to be honest. Its just how I see it.
BJ: If it was up to me it would be over in januari 2021 so I can finally take that one girl on a date to a restaurant 😉
Zubedoo's Top 10 Cards of 2020
10. Nekker – I mean come on a thrive for 4 prov? AND we get 2 of these? If they stick on the battlefield, they can go for crazy points and not to mention after the release of the spontaneous evolution, they will be more meta for sure.
9. Aen Elle Conqueror – A straight 7 for 4, no questions asked. Cards like this is what gives me the confidence to go devotion in MO.
8. An Craite Greatsword – Even post-nerf these guys are amazing engines in SK control decks. Sure they are difficult to keep on the battlefield, but even if they are taken out, it gives tremendous value to Hjalmar and sets up Harald really well too.
7. Morkvarg – Good old Smorkvarg, in this meta he always finds value thanks to greedy tall units and who doesn’t like to hear that man’s amazing laugh 😛
6. Halfling Safecracker – Easily one of the best 5 prov value cards out there, it boosts for all crimes in hand on spot and can Intimidate as well. Like come on. 5 – Sly Seductress. Mostly because of the voiceline and card art! 😀
4. Wild Hunt Riders – For 5 prov this is an instant thinning, as it has the easiest condition to meet, Dominance.
3. Usurper General – NG is my fav faction, always has been, this card is amazing 12 for 12 even in non devotion and in stage 3, the Agents help boost him as well, giving it alot of synergy with most cards.
2. Auberon King – In most MO decks this is my auto include and it really is a great short round 3 card. Not to mention the potential double thrive procs.
1. Ocvist – Not a card played, I know. But the art and the roar it gives is just AMAZING to me, it is my fav card design in the game.
