In our new player spotlight series, we highlight players that have made their name in the community of Albion through their own skills and achievements.
This time around, we take a closer look at the Warbow and solo-PvP expert Nausk. On his YouTube channel and in his Black Zone Tales-series, he shows us again and again what impact a single player can have, even in the most dangerous zones of the game. Enjoy!
Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself!
A: I’m a young adult that enjoys observing the surrounding world and its phenomena, is pretty easy to get along with and usually open for new things.
Q: Where does the name “Nausk” come from?
A: The name “Nausk” dates back to 2015, before I started playing Albion Online (July 2015). I tried to come up with a name that would have five letters and one letter after another, it all came together. I was happy with the outcome so I sticked with it.
Q: How and when did you first get into video games?
A: I was a few years old when my parents bought two Game Boys (the first one in the Game Boy line) and if I can remember correctly, Tetris was the first video game that I played.
Q: Where did you go from there? When did you start with Albion?
A: After handheld video gaming system, I played with Macintosh, different consoles and PC. I started playing Albion Online, when the first Beta kicked off in 2015.
Q: Tell us about one of your favorite moments in Albion.
A: It happened in the zone south-east from Boneharbour (red zone city in Beta 1). I was trying to catch a player that tried to escape from me and a few friends of mine. A Direwolf got involved before the death of the escapee, so I killed the creature almost at the same time as the player was about to die and happened to missclick on the Direwolfs corpse, that opened a window with a Direwolf Pup.
Q: What are your goals at launch?
A: I’m trying to find time to play Albion Online, enjoy the game as much as I can and play the game with friends as well as solo.
Q: You do a lot of PvP videos for Albion. What do you think is the best about PvP and Albion and what would you like to see changed in the future?
A: In my opinion solo PvP is the best form of PvP, because of the feeling one gets after and during a good fight. I would like to see more reasons for solo players to roam the black zones.
Q: Right now you are working on a series called “Black Zones Tales”. Can you tell us a bit more about this?
A: Because of the reputation system, I find myself doing almost only black zone roaming and thought that I could document and share some of the moments that I experienced during those adventures. If even one player learns something from those videos, I feel like I have succeeded, since making videos is only a hobby for me, which I don’t take too seriously.
Q: What are your plans for the release of Albion?
A: As far as the content of the future goes, I myself don’t even know what the future holds for us, so I guess the time will tell.
Q: Is there any advice you can give players who want to start making Albion YouTube videos?
A: Upload content that you could watch yourself, listen to the right people and try your best, so you can look back to those time and feel good about it.
Q: Which one of your videos do you think everyone should see?
A: Because it’s hard to pick one - the newest one.
Quick questions, even quicker answers!
Q: Red Army or Echo of Silence? A: Echo of Silence
Q: Korn or Bercilak? A: Bercilak (P.S. I don't know why I picked B, when you asked "Korn or Bercilak". I have nothing against either one!)
Q: Heretics or Undead? A: Undead
Q: GvG or Hellgates? A: Hellgates
Q: Gold or Silver? A: Silver
