Hadley Brightfoot and Carraway Author join Camate.
BG talking about the positive energy at the fest.
Camate asking if they think they’ll one shot Odin.
BG: Probably not lol.
Camate: How’d the coil group get together?
Carraway: BG has been around forever, when we saw ARR, we were really impressed with all of the work that was put in.
Hadley: I joined after 2.0.
Camate: Whats the strategy for a world’s first team?
BG: Within our raid team, everyone’s so talented in their own way. It’s a very team oriented mindset. No one’s trying to be the dude so to speak. I (Hadley) focus on healing, I never get tired of white mage. That was one of the strengths, you’re trying to be efficient with the time, it’s all about collaboration. It’s about keeping everyone with a level head and logically approaching it one step at a time. We learned to read the tool-tips.
Camate: What were your theories about the twister?
BG: We studied the footage, used trial and error until something magically worked.
Camate: Are you guys secretive about your tactics?
BG: Not intentionally, but we’re more focused on trying to figure it out. It’s not about a veil of secrecy, but we sort of stick to our own thing and what we can accomplish with our group.
Camate: Did you guys have any tense moments?
BG: Sure, after six hours sometimes tension got high, but we try to make sure people keep the fact that it’s a game in check, go outside, have a coffee, get fresh air whatever. Our FC is only about half US based. The culturally diverse mix helps with the positive mentality.
Camate: Do you have multiple groups within the FC?
BG: We have about 2, sometimes 3 groups.
Camate: Do the groups collaborate with like, making food or whatever?
BG: Oh totally, we’re all the same team. We actually have some people solely dedicate themselves to crafting.
Camate: Have you guys been tackling Savage at all?
BG: Yeah we’ve been going at it pretty casually.
Camate: How do you guys handle raiding?
BG: We’re actually not quite as hardcore as people might think. When new content comes out we definitely binge on gaming, but it tapers off fairly quickly, I mean, we’re all normal people so we have lives and things to do (laughter). We let people go you know, eat and stuff.
Camate: Any speculation on new Coil?
BG: We try not to have any expectations, and have fun with the surprises.
Camate: Any tips for people trying to beat turn 9?
BG: Record your own gameplay. That’s pretty helpful for seeing opportunities where you could improve your game. Remember everyone is a human being you’re playing with. It’s gotta be fun.
Shout outs to everyone at BG.
