It's been a week since the WCG 2007 ACG event where Cybertime RoA placed 2nd in the Dota All-Stars tournament. I have managed to catch one of their members, Kindaichi, for an online interview (through Lowyat.net). Because of work at the office and some other stuffs, I didnt manage to interview him earlier. Nonetheless, below is teh interview with Kindachi.

First of all congratulations to Roa for the 2nd place in WCG 2007 Asian Championship.

Thanks.

" Cybertime RoA, 2nd in Asia at WCG 2007 ACG "

Can you introduce to us about you and Roa ? How it all started ?
Po, Gin, Kindaichi and Doidoi got to know each other as we used to hang around Cybertime setapak. We played lan game quite often all the time. Next, Cybertime was forming teams and we are invited to be their gamers. I think most of the people know we did have teams such as Cybertime 1 and Cybertime 2 formerly. And then one time there was even Cybertime 3 where Chilam was in. After that, due to some personal circumstances, some of the members from both teams were not able to continue to be gamers and from there, the current Cybertime team was formed. The members were Chilam, Po, Gin, Kindaichi and Doidoi. Later, paulyan joined and team Cybertime became a team of 6. We are really happy to have such a great team. Without anyone of us, we could not have gone this far.

The matches are really tough, and it's unlucky that RoA lost to WE. What do you think about the final?
Refer to the question "From your opinion, whats the reason that RoA lost to WE ? Wrong draft ? Bad Strategy ? WE is better or just plain unlucky ?"

" The finals between China (WE) and Malaysia (Cybertime RoA) "

In the tournament, Bristleback are said to be the most imba (imbalance) hero. Any team that picked BB will win. What do you think about that?
I could not say teams taking BB will 100% win, but i could say the opponents would certainly have a hard time dealing with BB. Banning this hero would make DotA matches much more interesting.

" Focusing on the game "

" Cybertime RoA during the final match at WCG 2007 ACG "

From your opinion, whats the reason that RoA lost to WE ? Wrong draft ? Bad Strategy ? WE is better or just plain unlucky ?
Bad drafting was the main reason. We should have first picked BB. And they were good as well. Teamwork and personal skills were superb. Too bad we did not perform our best in the final. Our bad and we could blame no one but ourselves.

Besides China (WE), which country that you think had given Malaysia (RoA) a hard time ?
We faced Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Philippines before we met China in the final. I supposed Team Flow from Philippines was the toughest team among the teams we have played.

Looking back to the days and life at Wcg 2007 Asian Championship, is there anything memorable about the event?
Well, the event was definitely an unforgettable experience for us. And we have to say we were experiencing many things for the first time in Singapore. Carrying a Malaysian flag and being interviewed, one by one introducing us on the stage, feeling like stars among ourselves, and much more.

" The crowd that was there watching the final match "

Now the tournament is over, whats the next event RoA will focus on ?
Of course the SMM grand final.

Which team is the biggest threat for RoA currently here in Malaysia that can upset you/RoA in the next coming tournament ?
All teams in Malaysia are equally good now. They frequently train and put a great eye on the SMM grand final. There are no specific teams I could mention because any teams could have upset us anytime and we would not look down on any teams in Malaysia.

I would like to say thanx to you and RoA for putting some time aside for this interview.
No problem.

Any last shout outs ?
No thanks.

Thanx again to Kindaichi for being such a sport and spending a bit of his time to do this interview. Anyway, I wish good luck to RoA for the coming tourneys especially the "SMM Grand Finale".
