Interview with Game Master Ruatolov of Allods Online EU!

A bit ago I asked for an interview from Ruatolov, I’ve been saving the interview for the right date to release. I got a lot of questions asking about the game, but I pruned them, because it was meant to be a personal interview. He agreed to an interview and also gave me five hundred EU keys.

Now, without further ado, I present to you Ruatolov of the EU Gala-Net team!

What exactly is your job for gPotato?
My job is Community Manager for Allods Online Europe at the portal.

What is the most enjoyable part of your job?
Seeing the same names everyday playing while watching the newcomers enjoying the game for the first time! There’s a great sense of community in Europe for Allods Online. I’m also a fan of listening to the fun conversations that take place in zone chat. They talk about some crazy things!

Are you liking the fan following behind Allods Online so far?
The response from Europe for Allods Online has been really enthusiastic. Our players stretch right across the continent from Ireland to the edges of Eastern Europe and from the tip of Scandinavia to the very south of the Mediterranean. It’s really inspiring to be a part of a game with such a great fan base. The artwork submitted on our Guild Portal ( has been really creative too!

Why did you start working with this game?
I wanted to work on Allods Online because it offered me something I couldn’t find in other MMOs: A game where I can play whenever I want, and not worry about whether I’m getting my money’s worth. Being a member of the team that will spear-head a revolutionary change of the MMO genre is something not many experience. Pay to play is so last decade. 2010 and beyond belongs to the subscriptionless MMO, and Allods Online is leading the charge. Thank you!

Do you have any pets?
Ruatolov doesn’t look after animals. Ruatolov eats animals…for dinner.

In game, what is your favorite class so far?
Oh I don’t have a favourite. I tend to create a few different classes and just go with what feels good at the time. There’s plenty of choice in Allods Online so it’s tough for me to pick just one favourite class.

Do you have a preference for PvE or PvP?
Depends on my mood, if I’m feeling some stress and want to “let it out”, I do PvP. When plan on playing for a few short hours, I’ll just relax with some PvE. Allods Online has plenty of options in terms of play style, so it’s easy to switch from feature to feature.

What feature of Allods Online do you enjoy the most?
Astral Ships! I was born to be a Helmsman. Going through the Astral is a mysterious and exciting adventure. I still have to learn a few better strategies to successfully to take down Astral demons though.

What is your all time favorite game that is not an mmorpg?
Not an MMO? Hmm. Probably Jet Set Radio on the Dreamcast. I also love some Street Fighter action. I’m so retro.

If you could go one place in the world for a week vacation, where would you go?
Well I’ve been to Japan before which was great, so maybe a different part of Japan this time.

If you could have a non combat pet in game, what would you like your pet to be?
I’d have an Astral-whale. Everyone would call him “Moby Dick of the Astral”.

What is the meaning behind your name?
If I told you, your mind may explode from sheer amazement.

Now, if I don’t ask this my readers will kill me. Any juicy gossip you’d like to share?
If your a fan of World Cup soccer, keep an eye out on our official site
It’s going to be a fun summer!
