Babyjosus: What does it mean to you now you’re officially a part of BG?
Ithlinne Magi: It feels like walking into a room full of friends where I don’t have to pretend to be anything other than myself. I can talk about gaming and not feel like a nerdy outsider who no one gets. Honestly, you can’t put a price on that.
BJ: What made you join BG?
IM: As you know, I was formerly with Team Sensual. They are really lovely guys, but as the only native English speaker(and non-Spanish speaker) on the team, it felt a tad disjointed, I didn’t really feel part of the team. That’s not a poor reflection on them, they did what they could, but when you asked me if I was still interested to be Community Manager for BG, it felt like the right time to take on a new challenge.
BJ: What can people expect of you now that you are with BG?
IM: Well, writing is in my veins, so maybe the odd article for the team website, as long as I’m allowed to talk about Lippy, of course! Other than that, lots of promoting both the wonderful streamers we have in BG as well as our talented content creators who take the time to write about the game they love.
BJ: How well suited are you to the life of a Community Manager?
IM: Oh, well I love social media and I spend a huge amount of time on various social platforms, so managing the team’s social interactions is perfect for me. If you can overlook the less than polite people that you inevitably find there, it can be an amazing place for forging friendships, and the Gwent community is by and large a fantastic thing to be a part of.
BJ: What message would you give to the supporters of BG?
IM: Firstly, thank you for their support! We have a team of memers and dreamers, of competitive players and content creators whose diversity means that there’s something for everyone, from new players looking to start their Gwent journey, to seasoned pros looking for fun decks to play on ladder (triple Commandos, anyone?). I look forward to being a part of this diverse and talented team!
