Hello, here is a interview with WBL member: SamuraiMaster. This was originally part of a bigger project but I am still working on getting the proper footage for it. If you want to see the live interview, keep scrolling down. Thanks!
[White] We are here with WBL member:
Good day to you sir.
[SamuraiMaster] Good day to you, also!
[White] So, I went to focus on WBL.
[SamuraiMaster] Focus away.
[White] So, you were the first wave of in-game WBL?
Meaning, you were one of the first wave of people invited in?
[SamuraiMaster] Pretty much. They started bringing in in-game people in spring and summer.
EnigmaticPlastic was in before me.
[White] When did you get invited? Year:
[SamuraiMaster] I guess someone saw my property Tournament of Champions and liked it.
[White] I see.
[SamuraiMaster] I hear it got passed around billing as well.
[White] So being in WBL. What was the experience like?
[SamuraiMaster] You can’t say the actual city name in-game, so “Billing” LOL
[SamuraiMaster] It was fantastic. We got to really work closely with the community to promote building in-game.
[White] I see.
[SamuraiMaster] Also, it was nice to have direct access to the community team. Give input on the build tool and upcoming stuff, etc…
Also, working the LU booth at brick con was great.
[White] So let us move on away from WBL.
Your time and thoughts on LEGO Universe:
[SamuraiMaster] Fantastic concept!
[White] What are some of your thoughts on LEGO Universe? What could they do better etc?
Excuse me, what they could “have” done better.
[SamuraiMaster] Oh, it’s difficult to say. A lot of things caused the end of LU–almost none of them the ones people blame.
True, marketing could have been better.
[SamuraiMaster] And perhaps the subscription model.
But, in the end, it came down to good old poly-ticks. 🙂
[White] I think we are running low on time want to close this interview with anything?
[White] Alright, take it away!
[SamuraiMaster] Keep building! Even though the game is ending, there’s always REAL LEGO blocks to use. And, let’s face it, they are even more fun! 😀
[White] Truly a great man, SamuraiMaster thank you.
[SamuraiMaster] Thanks, White! Have a good one. 🙂
[White] You have been a great help to the whole of LEGO Universe community.
