More personally now,

 

When did you fall into video games?

  • Around the age of 6-7 when I had an accident and to keep the time in the hospital going, my parents bought me my first Game Boy and that was where it all started.

What do you find most enjoyable in video games?

  • I love games that have a great story to tell and I love games that require the skill to complete a task.

Risky question: Retro or New?

  • New

What is your favourite franchise / game?

  • I love the Uncharted series and I was a veteran in the very first Call of Duty where I invested hours and hours in Multiplayer mode with my old clan.

  • Starfox Adventures which was released on Gamecube! I have finished this game several times.

You have the opportunity to put yourself in the shoes of a video game producer, present your game to us. Title, graphic style, game style (RPG, FPS, etc.), short summary:

  • The playstyle would be Adventure with elements of an RPG like the evolution of his character. As I am fascinated by the history itself and especially the era of the world war, the game is set in the era of the 2nd world war. There are a lot of FPS playing in this era, but I miss any adventure games or RPG in this style.
  • I will choose a fairly realistic graphic style with a third character camera.
  • Since I'm not too good at inventing names, the title would simply be “WWII”.

Interview of committee members



You will find here a small interview proposed to the members of the committee in order to get to know them better.



Why be part of this non-profit organisation?

  • First, I decided to join Brotherhood of the red lion, because I found the idea, to promote every aspect of gaming and to build up a community, of this non-profit organisation more than awesome. Furthermore, I wanted to support my friend Alex (President), who initialised the project. 
  • Last but not least, in my opinion gaming still does not get the attention as it should be, gaming is a serious hobby and it connects people.

What is your role in the non-profit organization?

  • My main role is treasurer, I ensure that every cent is trackable and that we have at all moments a good overview on our finances. My second role is E-sport manager. I am always in contact with our E-sport members and check what their needs are. Furthermore, I have weekly meetings with the team to be up to date.
  • In addition, I also stream regularly on our Twitch channel and I am also making pictures to promote our streams on social media.
  • I am also the scout of our organisation, in terms of streamers. I am always checking on the social media to see if there are any new Luxemburgish streamers, who want to join our crew.
  • And last but not least, I write some articles from time to time for our webpage.
  • So, as you can see, I am a jack for all trades.

 

If you could choose, would you have another role within the non-profit organization?

  • Absolutely not, because I love doing all those things and I like how our community is growing.

Which message to send, by this non-profit organization, is the most important for you?

  • For me the most important message is that the fun is always in focus and that we want to build a community with a friendly and family-like atmosphere.

What do you hope for the future of the non-profit organization?

  • For our future, I hope that we are growing and that other people see what a fun and relaxed organisation we are, so that they join us. The big dream is clearly to be one of the biggest community in Luxemburg.

 

More personally now,

 

When did you fall into video games?

  • I started video gaming, with 10 years.

What do you find most enjoyable in video games?

  • For me videogames are the escape from reality into a multiverse of fantastic opportunities. When I am playing my games I can relax and forget the worries of my day.
  • In addition, you can meet new people through video games, which shows that games are not so antisocial.

Risky question: Retro or New?

  • Why not both? XD

What is your favourite franchise / game?

  • Definitely Mario games.

If a retro game were to have the right to a Remaster, which game would you choose? (choose a game that has not had a Remaster)

  • Metroid Prime would be a nice remake.

What is your favorite console (excluding PC)?

  • PS5 :D

You have the opportunity to put yourself in the shoes of a video game producer, present your game to us. Title, graphic style, game style (RPG, FPS, etc.), short summary:

  • It would be an MMORPG totally in the fantasy world of the dwarves. With all the different aspects of mining, brewing beer, fighting, jewellery etc. The gameplay would be like Guildwars 1 and the graphic style similar, but with the standards of nowadays. But in which you can also build your own house beneath the mountain and do your own mining.

You will find here a small interview proposed to the members of the committee in order to get to know them better.



Why be part of this non-profit organization?

  • I joined because I think, the idea of creating a community for gamers is awesome and gaming organisations like ours should be boosted in Luxembourg

 

What is your role in the non-profit organization?

  • I am responsible for our social media. I publish the daily Posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

 

If you could choose, would you have another role within the non-profit organization?

  • I don’t know, but I like the work I am doing right now!

 

Which message to send, by this non-profit organization, is the most important for you?

  • For me the most important message to send is that we are all enjoying games and that we want to create a family like community where everybody helps each other.

 

What do you hope for the future of the non-profit organization?

  • I hope that our organisation keeps on growing. I wish that it becomes a great success and that we are known in Luxembourg.

 

More personally now,

 

When did you fall into video games?

  • It started when I was like 6. My brother had a GameCube and I was always watching and I think that’s when I started to enjoy games.

 

What do you find most enjoyable in video games?

  • I’m a big Dark Souls Fan, which means I like challenging games. I enjoy playing challenging games as much as I rage at them. 

 

Risky question: Retro or New?

  • Maybe that’s because I am much younger than the other Members, but I am definitely on the “News” Side of gaming. I am always surprised by what the creators are able to do, doesn’t matter if it’s an awesome story or new graphics.  New games were always the path of progress.

 

What is your favourite franchise / game?

  • My favourite franchise is definitely the Dark Souls Trilogy for now. Before Dark Souls I was always hyped for playing The Legend of Zelda and I still am.

 

If a retro game were to have the right to a Remaster, which game would you choose? (choose a game that has not had a Remaster) 

  • I would definitely choose Majin and the forsaken Kingdom. I played that game when I was like 8 or 9. I played it on PS3. I loved the game and I would definitely buy it when it would get remastered.

 

What is your favorite console (excluding PC)?

  • No comment. xD I do like the Nintendo Switch a lot, but nothing would surpass gaming on a PC. (A better developed VR-Experience might change that., for example Full Body suits.)

 

You have the opportunity to put yourself in the shoes of a video game producer, present your game to us. Title, graphic style, game style (RPG, FPS, etc.), short summary: 

  • The title would be something like “Do or Die!” The graphic style would be like Dark Souls 3, dark, lots of effects,etc.  It would definitely be a Soul’s like game. It would play in our modern Society where the Nuclear Holocaust cause various mutation on animals, who are attacking the Human race. As the protagonist of the story you could choose your starting layout and class, like in the other souls games. You would have to fight those Mutants with guns, swords, etc. The objective is to gather all resources needed to create an antidote that cleanses the World from those mutations. You’ll have to face challenging Boss FIghts in order to get your ressources.

Welcome Stéphane!

First of all, before saying welcome to our new member of the committee, I would like to thank Manu.

He was our secretary, but above all he was one of those who made this project possible. He did everything he could so that Zeph our president could create this magnificent non-profit organization and bring together a beautiful community. All this until making our association a very important player in the Luxembourg Esport scene and helping us to have great projects. It goes without saying that our future projects will also be possible thanks to him. Please know that we are planning a lot of good things in the medium term.

So a big thank you to Manu, to an exemplary member, secretary and friend.

 

Now, welcome Stéphane!

Nobody puts pressure on you because of who you have to replace, we are sure that you will know how to honor him and help us in all these beautiful projects.

To introduce him, know that he has been a friend and member of our association from the start. He even had a booth during our first event which took place a month before the health crisis.

His booth planned to showcase card games. You surely know Magic the gathering, Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh!

Well, he specializes in one of the most recent games. In particular, the DBZ card game. He is the proud owner of a huge collection of cards and knows the game inside out.

He was able to help our guests to understand the game and quickly appreciate it.

His talents will be appreciable for our non-profit organization and his seriousness will make him an excellent secretary and a member who will know how to make us evolve continuously.

 

All committee members are happy to see him join our team. For the record, it was voted unanimously by the committee!

Post Esports Masters Qualfiers

Post Esports Masters Qualfiers

Last Saturday and Sunday it was time. Our Lions were hunting in the Post Esports Qualfication Games.

Finally, the team had the possibility to start their quest of defending their title. It was not always easy, it didn’t always went the way they wanted but they proudly shown everyone that the their hunger wasn’t satisfied.

The Esports Masters will have to deal with hungry lions!

They first started against Nocturnal E-Sports, where they showed what they are able to do.

In my opinion the best performance came from our Top Laner (RL KeNNetic), who was playing as Gangplank.

He did his job, by focussing the enemy’s carries and by always countering Shen’s ultimate with his Cannon Barrage.

 

Unluckily for the tournament the second team, FAT BOIS ROAMING, did not show up. We won this game by forfeit.

 

In their last game on Saturday, they were playing against ETERNAL DINDOS.

The game was finished fast. MVP of this game was our adc KoreanCarryJK, with a remarkable performance. With 30 kills he ran over the enemies and their base.

It became interesting on Sunday. Their first game was against our rival OUTPLAY ESPORTS.

The game looked winnable until minute 10. Our lions tried their best and really played well, but it wasn’t enough to beat OUTPLAY.

Last year, OUTPLAY ESPORTS also won against our Lions in the qualification games, but we won the final.

Is this our lucky charm for this year too? Lose every other game and win the Finals? Let’s stay tuned and watch their career with great interest.

 

Their last qualification game, on Sunday, was against RELY ON. It was an interesting game. Both teams really showed us what they are able to do.

They both tried their best, but in the end our Red Lions won the game and had a final score of 4 Wins and 1 Lose. They took the 2nd place in the qualification games.

 

In the group stage our Lions are facing once again OUTPLAY ESPORTS, MAD TURTLES and TEAM GAME CHANGER.

We wish them best of luck!

Post Esports Masters comes to an end

Red Lions’ Post Esports Masters

Last Saturday (05.06.21) it was time for our Red Lions to fight. They had to play against RelyOn for the 3rd place of the tournament. In their first game they literally dominated their opponents. You could really tell that they were training hard for the last weeks, because of how they played. The match ended with a win for the Red Lions.

 

redlions1

 

This win boosted the confidence and the moral of our players, which in general a good thing, but not this time… In their second game some of the players became too cocky and overestimated themselves. They lost their focus, and they were run over by RelyOn. The game ended with a loss for the Red Lions.

In the last game they realised that they cannot underrate RelyOn. Our Lions fought with everything they had. In every single fight, you could see that they were 100% determined to win the game. The game was very close. It was a head-on-head match. Neither of both teams wanted to lose. For every fight, our Lions won, there was a counter play from RelyOn. It was an interesting game until the last second. Unluckily for the Red Lions, RelyOn won the decisive fight and won the game. BOTRL’s team earned the 4th place after a hard and heavy season.

 

redlions2

 

Nevertheless, we are still proud of our Team, they did their best and we are looking forward for next season of Post Esports Masters.
