A small matter of disqualification aside, Red Wing Orlandinos was second only to Chaos in the recent Spring Mayhem Tournament. It’s a Russian house that’s poised to deploy its full strength once the gates of Conqueror’s Blade are fully open. We sat down with its founder and leader, OrlRequiem, to see what everyone might well be up against.
HOW DID YOU FIRST FIND OUT ABOUT CONQUEROR’S BLADE?
I got acquainted with the game at a time when it had a different name and very few people knew about it. This was 1.5-2 years ago.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO SET UP A HOUSE IN CONQUEROR’S BLADE?
For us, Conqueror`s Blade is the only game where we’ll be in the near future. It has its advantages and disadvantages, so why not?
WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES RED WING ORLANDINOS DIFFERENT?
We have no equal in power. Someone else might call it a uniqueness.
WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE WHEN THE GAME GOES LIVE?
We will most likely to start in Ungverija, because, in my opinion, it is the location that is the most diverse and resource-rich. What to achieve? It would not be bad to create a legacy. So that in the future people will talk about us and how we influenced the history of the game.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CLASS TO PLAY AS AND WHY?
I’ve played the musket before, but on the last test I tried Poleaxe. I have no preferences on whom to play. There are metas where certain classes show themselves well, but I play meta because I want to win. I have no reason to play a weak class to prove something to someone.
YOU DID PRETTY WELL IN THE SPRING MAYHEM TOURNAMENT. WHAT WAS THE SECRET OF YOUR SUCCESS?
Experience and personal skill. The whole tournament was quite predictable for us, even the finals.
WHO ARE YOUR MOST TRUSTED PLAYER AND WHAT ROLES DO THEY COMMAND?
The backbone of the house consists of 10-15 people and each of them is important to me. I can approach each of them and ask for opinions on various issues. I rarely need advice on what to do, but I often like to have a different perspective.
IF SOMEONE WANTED TO JOIN YOUR HOUSE OR START A PACT, WHAT SHOULD THEY DO?
Write me a PM with your proposal. If someone wants to join us, then you can keep your identity and home, but we will assume global leadership. Loyal houses will be rewarded.
ARE THERE OTHER HOUSES THAT YOU ADMIRE OR THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE NATURAL ALLIES?
We have very good relations with the Chaos, Ocean and Dark Triad. With some, it’s because we respect each other as rivals, while others we have known them a long time. And their leaders are great guys who are a pleasure to deal with.
DO YOU CONSIDER ANY HOUSES AS MORTAL ENEMIES OR DANGEROUS COMPETITORS?
Many thanks to OrlRequiem for answering our questions. If you know of a house that is deserving of similar recognition that we should profile in the future article, please make your nomination via our Discord channel.
