When the history of Conqueror’s Blade is written, the house known as Chaos will probably be mentioned more than a few times. In what little that has been written so far, it already features prominently. Whether the Russian house continues to feature might come down to the efforts of its leader, Irreality.
HOW DID YOU FIRST FIND OUT ABOUT CONQUEROR’S BLADE AND WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE GAME?
Our community learned about Conqueror's Blade more than a year ago, before the first European test of the game. Then, together with TheRed, we fought against houses like Crimson Blades. Since then we have participated in all other test stages.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO SET UP A HOUSE IN CONQUEROR’S BLADE?
Because I lead a community, and when the community heads towards a new game, I create a guild there.
WHAT MAKES CHAOS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER HOUSES?
We have players with extensive MMO experience, and, as a result, a capacity to learn quickly and adapt. We have strong leadership, but members are not bound to the desires and whims of the leader. We offer fair progression and loot distribution based on an individual’s contribution to raids, diplomacy, community, tournaments and overall levels of combat.
WHAT DOES CHAOS WANT TO ACHIEVE AS A HOUSE?
Undoubtedly our main efforts will be to dominate in whatever region we choose. But for us it is not enough just to want to win the map. We have been engaged in all previous tests and are actively training new community members; raising the level of team coordination, strategy and developing common tactics, so we can achieve our aims.
Unlike many other houses that claim to be similar, my words are supported by our achievements, both during testing and in the tournament. I definitely regard our roster as one of the strongest in the game.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CLASS TO PLAY AS AND WHY?
During testing I’ve played many classes. In the recent build of the game, my choice was Longsword and Shield. It’s a great support class and effective against all but Twin Blades.
WHO ARE YOUR MOST TRUSTED AIDES AND WHAT ROLES DO THEY COMMAND WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION?
I try to ensure that every member of the community adequately understands their task. When they do, I’m not required to interfere as much when issues arise. Nevertheless, of course in my team there are a number of officers and assistants who help me in managing raid composition and tactics.
IF SOMEONE WANTED TO START A DIALOGUE TOWARDS FUTURE TRADE OR ESTABLISHING A PACT, WHAT SHOULD THEY DO?
ARE THERE OTHER HOUSES THAT YOU ADMIRE OR THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE NATURAL ALLIES?
During previous testing we actively cooperated with two houses, Holy Cross and Red Wing Orlandinos. In general, the policy of our community and myself does not strongly encourage alliances, but if necessary we are ready to act together against a common adversary.
ARE THERE ANY HOUSES THAT POSE A MORTAL THREAT TO CHAOS?
I can not say that we have any deadly enemies. We are at war with everyone we need to be at war with and therefore many other houses are building alliances against us, trying together to attack our territories and so on. But all this is also part of the policy of our community - a war against the whole world. We will never give up on glorious PvP - this is the goal of our game!
CHAOS WAS RAMPANT IN THE SPRING MAYHEM TOURNAMENT. WHAT WAS THE SECRET OF YOUR SUCCESS?
Game experience and competent tactics. Two of our team hadn’t played the game before the Spring Mayhem test, but this didn’t stop them preparing. Our attitude was very serious. I would advise other teams in future to assemble a team with which it will be comfortable to play, train and even lose together. After all, there is no progress without errors.
Many thanks to Irreality 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.
