Given the popular demand for more interviews we decided to bring you one of our partnered content creators, the Austrian Florian Huber, also known as Floflorian, 23 years old. And Yes, we will keep on this series of interviews, with DECA staff, testers, content creators and Discord Mods.
Today we also give you two new events and address the O3/Discords issue.
Here’s the interview:
When did you start making content for the web, and why?
My first video was put on YouTube on September 2nd, 2012.
I originally started making YouTube videos because Recording and editing was super fun, and hoped to become big in Realm. Although I never had any expectations to become big when I started out.
I partnered up with DECA in May 2020, I originally hoped to partner up with DECA to be able to bring my voice to DECA and with that also relay problems the community has and to be a middleman between DECA and the community. As a DECA Partner I have the ability to directly contact the team and try to get answers to questions and even offer help myself.
One good example is the notifier bot ban-wave, where a bunch of people (Especially Linn and MrFel) went around the realms and servers to help me create a list with over 100 bot names that got eventually banned. This was made a lot easier due to the direct contact to the devs.
Do you have another job? Tell us about it.
I started working when I was 15 as a chef until I was 18, worked for a few years in a tanning studio and as a salesman, I am currently working in an emergency Assistance for vehicle accidents and breakdowns.
If I were to explain it as short as possible, if you have a breakdown with your vehicle and need help, you call a number, I’ll answer on that number and organize a towing service, rental car etc. My Job is to bring you home safely.
Archer, while it is just not that useful in terms of endgame bosses such as Oryx 3, it still is an extremely versatile and fun class. I’ve loved playing it since 2012, even my first YouTube video had my archer in it.
Oryx Sanctuary, even after completing over 500 O3s, it still doesn’t get boring! It reminds me of the old days of grinding Tombs, we used to go around every server and realm to find untouched sphinxes, Most people weren’t that good at the game back then so you found them super quick and easy. I got sooo many jugs that way.
What other games do you play?
I still like to invest myself in games such as Diablo 2 and Settlers 3, these are games I’ve been playing for nearly 20 years now.
Other games I play sometimes are Minion Masters, used to play it competitively and am generally casting tournaments now and I just recently started playing Wynncraft, a MMORPG Minecraft server that a lot of other realm players also play.
Something I also love to do is surfing in Counter-Strike: Source.
What makes RotMG unique? And why do you like to stream it?
Realm is essentially an open world game with no limitations, you can do whatever you want, whenever you want and however you want. There are no set goals and you can just make your own goals, no one can stop you from doing what you want to do. The only thing holding you back is yourself. Making YouTube videos and streaming the game just allows me to share my experiences in the game, it is just fun to do.
Imagine RotMG in 10 years. What will it be like?
Realm in 10 years will be on it’s 4th engine which is VR, and if you die ingame, you die in real life.
What are the things you love the most in the game?
The community, it’s also the thing I hate the most. An amazing dumpster fire you could say. An abusive relationship you can’t get away from.
What would you change?
I don’t think in terms of gameplay I’d change anything, I really enjoy the way it is.
If I could change something about Realm, it would generally be an improvement of the new player experience, general bug fixes, quality of life and… you know what. We all do.
