The ORB Interview
Featuring: Kevanovia (Currently Jack White for Halloween) – Head of FA for Bad Company
Each week Orbis Weekly will produce a number of interviews that we send out to people all over the world. The idea behind the ORB Interview is to shed a little light on people, especially ones we think the world of Orbis should know more about.The questions will range from basic, random, and relevant.
Kevanovia is a member of Bad Company currently fulfilling the role as Head of FA for the past few weeks.
Orbis Weekly: Can you tell me a bit about your PW history? (where you started here, etc)
Kevanovia: I started PnW and joined Bad Company a little over a month ago. I knew Cynic, Alexio, Kilo, Tevron, JackW, and DemonSpawn from previous Nation Sims (not to mention the countless awesome peeps I’ve met) so it has been home since day 1. It’s really cool seeing old friends like Partisan and Manthrax doing well for themselves in the larger community and I’m looking forward to seeing what else Orbis has to offer.
Orbis Weekly: Have you played any other simulation games in the past that may have led you to PW?
Kevanovia: I’m embarrassed to say that I have been playing nation sims for almost the majority of my life. I started playing NationStates back when I was just a little fella in 2005. I then joined CyberNations in early 2006 and was off and on again until about 2014. I recently came back to IRC to catch up with people and reminisce and here we are.
Orbis Weekly: Which alliances were you in over at Cybernations?
Kevanovia: I started out in The Legion and eventually made my way over to ODN/CIS/VE/Sparta/IAA learning gov roles and how to navigate some of the back channel madness. I made a few alliances (one could argue too many) in my time there as well including The Realm/The University/Anathema/Atlas. I hopped around meeting a ton of new peeps and learning new things for years and years.
Orbis Weekly: What is your current role within your PW alliance? Are you happy with that role? Why?
Kevanovia: I have been the Head of Foreign Affairs of Bad Company for a few weeks now. I’m extremely happy in this role. I get to work alongside the best government on Orbis, be a part of an active and close community, and help BC along the way.
Orbis Weekly: Any thoughts on the next Global War? Who do you think will be directly involved?
Kevanovia: I believe the major spheres will have a part in it. t$-Sphere/TKR & Friends/IQ/KTGH/VG. I think there are a few people out there that are casting out bait to help spark something. My guess is that once a spark has lit an ember, the select group in question will turn that ember into a wildfire. Looking forward to it, it should be fun!
Orbis Weekly: How do you feel about the Giant NAP ending on October 18th?
Kevanovia: No strong feelings really. I think it will just be that thing that happened that one time a while ago when we look back on it. Or maybe it will become the new norm. Only time will tell.
Orbis Weekly: If you could pick one of the BEST things you like about this game, what would it be?
Kevanovia: The game mechanics blow CN’s out of the water. Sheepy did a great job taking what was working and improving upon it. With that said, the community/politics part is what keeps me coming back for more.
Orbis Weekly: Is their anything you’d like to tell our readers that you think they should know?
Kevanovia: You can go to war with people you get along with. Don’t be afraid to be an enemy. It’s not personal, it’s what keeps the game alive. Separate CN politics from PnW. Stay Platinum baby!
Orbis Weekly: Pineapple on Pizza?
Kevanovia: Pineapple does not belong on pizza.
Orbis Weekly thanks Kevanovia for participating in the best interview on Orbis!
