Video interview with RattlesnK
Time: 2013-02-13 20:32
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Sam "RattlesnK" Gawn from Overrated Individuals sat with Christian "1nfiii" Weinert to touch upon various subjects, such as chemistry, team roles and his behavior in-game.

Gawn tries to explain how a team should work concerning the chemistry and the roles of each player. He points out how important it is to pick players carefully and even gives an example how it works in his team in particular.

While on the subject, RattlesnK emphasizes his opinion on snipers and goes on to say that Ninjas in Pyjamas are not going to be the best team when everyone catches up with them, if they do not have a top-tier sniper by then.

Towards the end of the interview the sniper and in-game leader of Overrated Individuals explains his personality and how it affects his teammates. 

they will actually
2013-02-13 20:32:25
yeah he obviously want to go there :D

2013-02-13 20:58:37
he said "top" sniper, not "slightly above average" sniper
2013-02-13 20:59:39
delpan above avarage??
you from earth ?
2013-02-13 21:09:45
yes, nothing more than that.
2013-02-13 21:20:45
i would actually have to agree too, delpan had really good moments, but hes no markeloff
2013-02-13 22:29:50
So, not being the best = above average, that's a good logic right there, tbh the only snipers who could be argued to be better him, towards the end of 1.6, is Friis and Markeloff.
2013-02-14 12:35:19
True words mate, towards the end of CS we only really had Mark, Delpan, Colon and Friis.
2013-02-14 20:49:03
Yeah Pasha could maybe be thrown in there to make it a top 5 but he wasn't really on the same level as the others imo.
2013-02-14 21:04:26
this is not 1.6 dude
2013-02-14 15:14:57
you think he's below average? my bad then
2013-02-13 22:32:27
you guys must be morons you cant deny what delpan did to sk
why would the sk organisation pick delpan if "he is above avarage"
wake up noobs !!

What fallen has to do with delpan being overrated?
2013-02-13 21:21:37
where what?
2013-02-13 22:31:50
It's about Cogu
2013-02-13 22:43:53

2013-02-14 12:28:15
Delpan is far away from NiP´s level. Have seen him pretty early playing gathers with some of the NiP players. And now Fiffy is very strong with awp, and much better with rifler, pistol and playstyle.
2013-02-13 22:26:09
Yeah, that would be epic. But I don't think he's so good.

Actually Poland is the 2nd world, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd world was something that was coined during the cold war. The 1st world refers to countries with a well established capitalistic government and a good economy. The 2nd world refers to the communist countries thus being the CIS countries, China, North Korea, Cuba etc. The 3rd world refers to rest of the countries, mainly the african ones where there is a lot of poverty.
2013-02-14 12:39:26
Anything south of France or eastern of Germany is defined as the third world. It's common knowledge.

i played 1.6 top end of European scene until it completely collapsed in the UK as ESWC and WCG stopped doing UK stops, anyone that was 'decent' moved to CSS for prizemoney & salary as UK had 0 sponsorship at that time in 1.6 unfortunately otherwise you'd of seen a hell of a lot more teams after 4Kings era or after 2006/07
2013-02-13 23:38:59
thats sad
2013-02-13 23:54:19
Ehm explain to me again how a UK team was top end european? because I seem to recall the teams which were top end in Europe back then was the Swedish, the Norwegians, the Germans, to some extent the Danes and then the odd team from Poland (ESC guys), Russia and France.
2013-02-14 12:42:12
Friza was never top at 1.6 or cs:s he just tells people he was, it is... weird.
2013-02-14 13:04:05
Don't you also call urself a "top gamer" when anyone that has watched you play can clearly see you was just in the right teams at the right times but never really made a real impact in any decent games

No flame just find it ironic brudda
2013-02-14 13:54:45
I don't really need to justify anything I did, not sure how someone can be in the right teams at the right times when I played in the best UK team from 2004-2007 and then only bettered by Salvo, and then in 2009 back to being the best UK team again with Crack Clan, I also made many impacts in decent games, but you probably only followed the scene from 2010 like the rest of the noobs. I also don't care about being a top "gamer" anymore, every version of CS is awful and dead and gone, move on plz.
2013-02-14 17:01:34
Yes, all the decent UK players like Suffz moved to Source... Or not.

2013-02-17 13:17:16
Yes .
2013-02-17 16:10:15
I agree its a matter of time before forest/gtr dump the source players. they've used them to get used to the game/get a head start, they'll bring in two better players eventually, when they start losing. Just like when forest/gtr tried to kick carn and dsn from fnatic
2013-02-13 20:36:01
friberg is a beast, no need to dump him
2013-02-13 20:38:07
friberg is a good player, if they would kick anyone it would be Fifflaren, otherwise the team is perfect.
2013-02-13 20:43:17
If you asked me before the recoil update I'd agree but right now I'd take Xizt and friberg over f0rest any day.
2013-02-13 21:45:09
seriously???
2013-02-13 22:35:21

fiff played amazing game with awp against vp. lets hope it wasnt just 1time thingy
2013-02-13 20:37:55
Sniper role isn't as crucial as it was in 1.6/css, so maybe they won't

2013-02-13 20:38:23
true dat, the awp seems useless in GO, especially in the butchered maps.
2013-02-13 20:39:47
yes, not least because the models are much faster.
2013-02-13 20:45:12
models are slower than 1.6, only maps are much smaller and models bigger which makes it look like models run faster
2013-02-13 20:49:19
they actually run at the same speed 250 units/s but the accel is higher in GO

Post edited 2013-02-13 21:12:12
2013-02-13 21:11:48

2013-02-13 20:40:45
they don't need top awp to beat you easy...
2013-02-13 20:41:44
agree, Rattlesnake i'd like to clone my self too :/ But i'm afraid the clones will glow in dark, won't be able to sleep.

2013-02-13 20:42:08
H@H@, they need nothing, they are just best. NiP must quit if we need an interesting game to spec with some actual rivals .

NiP may need a good sniper but OI appear to need 5 new top players to make them into a top team.
2013-02-13 20:45:04
5? Joke?
They have the required individual skill. A matter of time and practice.

This is ridiculous how much people ride his team's dick when they have zero results since Dreamhack Winter to show for it.

I get you guys want to root for an underdog to beat NiP or some up-and-coming Source legends team but OI, let's face it, are just another team with normal-level talent in GO right now.

If you know them from source you would know them to be a extremely top team with out practice. And when they practice and they dominate. In source they didnt practice, but they are all naturally good on LAN.

rich on fragbite posted some stats back in mid December.

Games: 42-0
Maps: 58-0
Round differential: +530
Avg. score: 16-7

Doesn't look like NiP's in need of anything. Better opponents perhaps.

Edit: Should probably note that the stats are LAN only.

2013-02-13 21:03:12
AHAHA U FUCKING ELFO FACE! they re saying this since the beggining
2013-02-13 21:43:26
Yeah ? And rattlesnk is saying it now, that they "will need" as in some time in the near future, they are going to NEED to replace their current awper.
2013-02-14 01:15:00
I don't understand why. If fiff is just going to focus/train himself with the awp a bit more. Why can he not be a top AWP'er. It's not that they need it now, he has the time to watch demo's and practice.

Fiff has proven his worth time and time again.
2013-02-13 21:06:10
Hes correct!
2013-02-13 21:07:52
Telling the undefeated team that have won every single tournament they have entered that they "will need" to make changes is a bit stupid. NiP are probably the only team in the top 4/5 that don't have a top sniper, and they are destroying everyone.
2013-02-13 21:08:57
It's weird to make a video of a guy who thinks he knows it all. It's a waste of youtube's database. Only guys who are blinded by a pro will actually think he is right.

We don't think he's better, we know he is better.

Rattlesnake had his time in CS:S, a nonamer non the less to me, but in this game, he's nothing special.
2013-02-13 21:30:21
haha
2013-02-13 21:32:10
rofl. even fifflaren would agree that rattlesnk is the better awper
2013-02-14 00:31:26
:D:D rofl, even delpan who rarely plays cs:go is better then rattlesnk, Nico is better then rattlesnk.
2013-02-14 04:10:03
how is delpan better than rattlesnk when rattlesnk has actually proven himself in csgo more than delpan by about 10o0000000%? please, retardation alert. go fuck yourself you stupid mother fucker.

... that .. felt good, thanks and fuck off you ugly cunt.
2013-02-14 06:23:00
Where has he proven himself? Against no namers? He doesn't even use it that often, and when he does he dies.

"when other teams catch up with NIP"

How many times are we going to read this ?:D Teams already had a lot of time and still nobody beat them.

And even if some teams will be able to fight with NIP, it will be maybe like 2/3 teams maximum this year.
2013-02-13 21:33:06
Why replace Fiffy? He is becoming really good with awp. He is a beast with rifler, pistol and his smart play style rapes Rattlesnake.
2013-02-13 21:34:23
fifflaren is a really good sniper atm he wasn't good but now he impress a lot

Wow, what a complete tosser.
2013-02-13 21:46:29
+1 When the "other teams catch up". Yeah like NiP aren't improving and just waiting for the other teams. With improved tacts I think fiff is gonna be a real monster, he has already showed that talent.

NONE of the other teams have any right to critize a perfect team, tossers indeed
2013-02-13 21:56:07
People may not have noticed but friberg has also secretly improved a lot. He gets so many important kills in crucial positions
2013-02-13 22:46:49
He has, taking really important kills
2013-02-13 23:16:58
awp role is not that important as it used to be in 1.6/css , so they have the balance ,normal awper with super aimers , they dont need super awper and super aimers , the best thing in being a normal awper ...its consistence , and in my opinion in GO thats the key for sucess . You are a gr8 awper, but tonight?? I ve never seen fiff missing like you did

He has got a valid points on the start executing parts. I feel the same and I wish sometimes I would be able to clone myself to execute tatctics properly

2013-02-13 22:02:27
first u have to play more hours ... re1ease 200 hours serious?
2013-02-13 22:02:34
I agree with what he said at 2:15:

Good ingame leaders like gob b, mooN, CHEF-KOCH and Kapio were very crucial for the German 1.6 teams. Since they're gone nothing filled that gap. Even though CS:GO is tacticwise much closer to CSS all these German CSS players, who play GO now, fail to come up with good tactics.
In 1.6 Germany was always in the top5 and most of the success was the result of good tactics. Aiming wise most Germans (expect players like cyx and roman) weren't up to the level of other international top players (and definitely not superior to them, so they couldn't make the difference with their aim - they had to come up with good tactics).

Just my opinion.

2013-02-13 22:17:08
well it seems like he is having sucess so why would he change it?the players when they come to his team know what to expect lol
2013-02-14 01:48:51
where is that success?
2013-02-14 19:00:25
Well, he did kinda explain his behaviour, didnt he? As long as it's allright for his teammates to get shouted at in order to improve, I don't see any problems with it.
2013-02-14 02:46:08
yeh but as in an in game leader he needs to look at what he is doing wrong too. How you talk to people or how you get your message across is really important and shouting shit at them doesn't make him a great in game leader, its just a testament to his team mates for putting up with his shit and still being able to play

I think he is right, but it's impossible to know. Valve could nerf/buff any gun at anytime. So his statement is a bit early i feel.

f0rest has been known to awp and be very good at it. He could take the roll up.
2013-02-13 23:41:10
Lol so many people talking the most bullshit i've ever read on a forum... i'm pretty sure RattleSnk's team were by far the closest to beating NIP on lan twice. What a bunch of retarded comments by way too many 1.6 narrow minded fanboys.

for everyone talking shit about rattlesnk

2013-02-13 23:56:00
Obviously he's a good player but he shouldn't be making ignorant blanket statements about teams, especially a team such as nip who have yet to lose a single important game.

Like everyone else was saying, the awp in this game isn't as impactful as it was in 1.6/css. Not to mention fifflaren is a competent enough awper to get the job done.

2013-02-14 08:44:03
Quite bold statement considering that the team isnt even two months old and has like 4-5 official games under their belt.

Why do you regard them as one of the best teams in Europe?
2013-02-14 08:55:09
If you read carefully, I said in my opinion.
2013-02-14 09:12:19
Actually I did read carefully and even if I didn't, it wouldn't matter because its quite obvious that it is your opinion and not a fact.

I wasn't attacking you or even necessarily disagreeing with you, I am just curious why do you think they are one of the best.
2013-02-14 16:24:41
2months old? you clearly have no idea at all, we originally played under VYE, VYE promised full sponsorship after turning upto lan nothing was paid for, so we left the organisation. We then moved and funded ourselves as c4urself, attended last iseries event finishing 3rd, playing in ems qualifiers, won heaven media madcatz comp, won sgl invite - we've been playing since probably just before September 2012 and majority of us (3 of us+) played together for before that, other 2 Kritikal and pez played with each other for years in FM! Toxic for example - then because of all of this mentioned and stable lineups we were then picked up by Infused.Tt eSPORTS now many people outside of the UK (interms of 1.6 players) would have heard of us - myself, kritikal, zeox all come from 1.6 background initial then moved to css, pulse powll and pez all came from css - but we have a lot of history behind us already

Sorry Friza, I didn't mean to offend you. What I meant was that the first that I heard of you was something like 2 months ago. Nice to hear that you've already played together for some time and have good results as well. Still you can probably admit that you haven't been on the spotlight that much over the half a year or so that you've been together so I was just curious to hear why unefois rated you guys that much.

I know you and the other guys from CSS, I think we used to pracc against each other a couple of years back quite often. You were playing with some UK boys and that one crazy swede, fudzx or something like that.

Gl for your team in the future!

how does it make him noob if he loses to team that played better?
2013-02-14 08:52:27
nobody think about maybe NiP bit everyone because they don't use so much snipe, and they focus a lot of time to open with rifle? gt,forest and xitz were the bests aimers in 1.6 and if you add 2 very good support players with experience... is hard stop them. You know... more or less you can stop/block the enemy snipe, but how you can to stop the best rifles?

Fifflaren's doing fine. If NiP change their roster now, then there are bigger chances of losing a match if not tournament. Smart move there RattlesnK.

I really love this thread, i have nothing against source players, but who is this Rattlesnk(or what is his name, anyway) comparing to Heaton(the manager of NiP who BUILT THIS TEAM WITHOUT A TOP SNIPER). Who is this rattlesnk comparing to f0rest, gtr, xizt? even friberg and fifflaren achieved more than him in the past 6 months of cs:go, and if his advices to make a 'top' team are so damn good, what did he achieved in csgo so far comparing to heaton's team?
I would really like if someone has this answers.

Not the article, only the title (since in the whole article there's only one line about it) but I have to admit that it was a little incautious.
2013-02-14 19:17:54
This was obviously taken around Dreamhack time , i think even Ratllesnk would take this back,cus lets face it fifflaren did get alot of critics at the begining ,and he was sewrious with "when other teams catch them up" ... this still might be the real scenario...

guess whos gonna leave NiP first when shit hits the team ?
2013-02-14 02:40:00
Can everyone that is flaming rattlesnK watch the Dreamhack demos of his team. And look at hime out awp every single player from the opposing team. And then him dominating NiP on mirage.

2013-02-14 12:58:24
seems very generalised. it all depends on how your team plays. I mean if you have a frod on your team, of course your gonna setup around it. But if you have a f0rest and gtr on ur team, well... your gonna obviously setup around that.

2013-02-14 08:52:09
I disagree, because NiP are playing momentum based game with all 5 of theyr players, therefore rifflers and individual skills are more important for them than having a single specialised sniper.
If they picked up an awper then it would make theyr regular non-awp rounds less consistent.
2013-02-14 07:25:57
RattlesnK is such a fucking loser.
2013-02-14 08:12:52
If they work great with their current awp, no need to change. If someday a team will catch up....i guess they will work on and keep bashing. Cuz in the end..its NiP ...
2013-02-14 08:17:55
Why the ..... would NiP change something?! They're winning everything and the chemistry is great within the team.. So i see no point in sayin they should kick blablabla

arrogant guy, but sometimes those are the ones who win

I agree the comments about NiP sniper are probably from many months back and are not relevant today. Fiff proving he is good enough...and don't forget having excellent teammates can make an awper's job easier.

the whining/raging is not a good thing though. Scandinavian teams are more professional than this and it shows...

Kritikal from infused does it a bit too but it's more gamesmanship with him, rather than just crying and hating on his teammates.

Maybe it's a UK thing :P
2013-02-14 08:46:43
what a joke...they dont need change at all.btw esc hadnt "top" sniper in cs 1.6 also and they were one of the best team in history(no offence but there were a lot of better awpers than pasha).

and i have to laugh at people who said
"OI top 2 already" without any official matches and they lost to some random uk team:D so funny

By 'catch up' I think he means when NiP's form begins to dip where perhaps other teams improve, if the game lasts long enough competitively there will obviously become a point where that happens and the gap wont be as wide as it is currently.

They may remain #1 team for a very long time, but they will not win every single LAN they compete in for the duration of their existence as a CS:GO team.

He believes Fifflaren as an AWP'er isn't talented enough to avoid being looked at as one of the first potential weak links, individually, which is a fair enough opinion considering the game is still in it's competitive infancy.

who the fuck cares about this opinion? random saucer lol

Stfu and get out of the community. Stop starting shit. This is CSGO not 1.6 or source. zzzz Your country explains everything.

What you people are obviously failing to understand is that this footage could have been taken from around Dreamhack, when Sam was in Mousesports (he's wearing the mouz shirt). At this time, Fiffy was simply not up to par with other awpers. Since then, we've seen a dramatic change and he's gotten really good. Just food for thought.
2013-02-14 10:49:58
With results they have, they shouldn't think about changing lineup at all.

Rattlesnake is a good Guy, talented and really experienced.

I am sure he knows what he is talking about and I absolutely agree what he said about NIP and the current Situation.

People saying let's face it, OI is just another normal pro Level Team and shit like that.

But it's only a matter of time, until at least a very few Teams keep up with NIP's actual Level.

I mean no matter how much Respect you got for NIP's actual Domination, you have to admit that NIP doesn't do anything magical or Shit like that, even you see them clearly dominate right now after almost hundred Officials, what is highly respectable.

NIP's Strength lay in the currently better Understandings of the general CSGO War Mechanism on a pro Level, means they are the Team what understands what is most effective with the acutal Gamemachanics, to dominate the Wars right now (pulling out the right Smokes to stop GO's to gain time,positioning right for the T Atacks, counter flashes, nadedamage and so on) plus they they have four Riflers which have an outstanding Weaponcontrol and training like shit to hold that highest Level they already reached. Plus they got Fifflaren as a AWP who does a good Job.

But, this whole 1.6 Talent and Source Talent shit back and forth.

I think we don't have to discuss about that other Players can't do things on the same Level as NIP in the near Future, cause that would be laughable.

Ofcourse Talent counts and ofcourse we are indivduals, but a Player like Get-Right is exactly the same way bounded to the possible Gamemachnics and what you can do wtih human skills as everybody else.

Means everything that's skillwise outstanding performed by a Player like Get-Right right now could get accomplished on the same Level by the right, trained and most important, experienced Player too.

not at all. They dominate and will continue to dominate because of obvious skills and most importantly - NUMBERS - They have played so many rounds of these kinds of games (especially f0rest gtr xist) in high pressure situations that they know what to do and know what to expect every single time. It's not a question of catching up - until a more skilled and experienced core (GTR xizt and f0rest) come along then there is no way to beat them.

The top 1.6 teams that have come over to CSGO are the only ones with a hope. Navi mainly for me (they will shock everyone in Vienna) and ESC. VG were amazing in css and are VERY talented individuals who have adapted incredibly well to CSGO. If they can get their teamwork and individual play to the level of NIP then they also have a chance.

GTR's form seems to have dropped in the past few games but then Xizt and f0rest step up so WCYD!

hey, NiP are OK now, wtf?
2013-02-14 11:04:43
Just to say I actually really like fifflaren and I have known him for a number of years now since CGS. I find it quite ridiculous that the title of this video is about him when it was just a comment that NiP may well need a better sniper if they begin to lose matches. It is not a bizzare comment to make and I think at the time it was a valid one.

It is clear that fifflaren has always been more comfortable rifling than using the AWP and in fact he took up the AWP to do a job for his team. The fact he has done better with the weapon (as with rifles he has always been good) was not something I predicted at the time of the interview. I just find it outstanding that HLTV.org have published my interview in the manner they have. It really was to get all of you having a good moan and to get a lot of comments. Thats media for you though.

As for everyone flaming our team and calling us shit it really is crazy considering we've barely played together at the moment. We have no strats, hardly played individually, and I have 10 exams during the next 2 weeks so havn't even considered our play at all. It would do everyone some good if people didn't judge everyone quite so quickly.

As I have said I really like Fifflaren, and so it would make me happy for him to continue playing extremely well. I certainly do not want to join NiP and for anyone who knows me this is quite obvious. Anyway, just thought it was necessary to make it clear as a lot of rubbish has been said here.

I have to admit that it was incautious of me to put it like this, but you're wrong to say that I did it for moaning, that's the last thing HLTV.org community needs.

Anyway, I apologize and hope that it didn't do much damage.
2013-02-14 19:24:21
Was about to say "If this interview was made 4 months ago or so, i would actually 100% agree with him. But since Fifflaren has improved soo much in the last months i honestly believe no changes will be needed soon.", but then I read what RattltsnK wrote up there and oh well.
2013-02-14 11:21:43
Rattlesnk - great guy and player.
2013-02-14 11:34:59
No Problem Rattlesnake, appreciate your Interview.

What I meant in Terms of NIP's Strength.

I mean even I as a not team-based experienced Player who mainly played lame mixes in the last two years, where you can hardly learn so many things in the same amount as working together and focused in a real Team, concentrating on all important Game-Elements together, notice why NIP is so strong.

They doing their Things extremely good on the CT Side, like positioning really good and reacting to counter the Opponents T Attacks, smoking other T Attacks in the right moment to gain time, best counter flashes, best counternades and they always know what to do if they losing rounds, to shift their Game for successful Tactics of the Opponent.

And also playing on the T Side, they doing the best tacticwise to have mapcontrol at the most important Points and just playing their sucessful T Game with all Possibilities you got ingame.

And if you add that to the enormous Weaponcontrol all NIP Players have, you understand there real Strength.

The very first Matches I watched those NIP Guys as a CSGO Noob, I didn't even understood why they are so strong you know and just saw them owning everybody. But now I see from where the Wind blows.

If I would be implemented in a real Team on Pro Level I would take a exact look on NIP's Ingame-Play through Demos even if it tooks one to three whole Days, to adapt the things they doing better on all important Maps, as the Rest of the World right now.

Rattlewho?????? This guy is really arrogant for a leader that hasn't done much. Why would anyone want to play with him?
2013-02-14 12:47:07
Stfu if you don't know who he is.
2013-02-14 13:06:26
A smart person do not expresses himself like this. Why even talk about "if" they start losing? Then all other teams needs to kick one or two players from their teams, because they are losing?!
Come on! The will lose sooner or later, but then they might work on other strats, not kicking players.
2013-02-14 14:35:58
who the fuck is RattlesaucernK-da-shit to tell what they need

he will never win even 5 rounds vs NiP

go and watch some demos from him at lan idiot , 1 screenshot online doesn't make you shit
2013-02-14 15:15:27
Doing OK in one single LAN doesn't make you very good either. It's all about average
2013-02-14 18:59:21
ESC are shit online as well. What's your point?
2013-02-14 15:28:43
I'm sorry, did you actually just post a screenshot from 1 match as a basis for someones skill?
2013-02-14 18:20:23
I also thought NiP could do better than Fiff, but he has really stepped it up lately and shown hes putting in the hours to get and stay on top.

I cant see any better options on the market tbh.

fault.we need to return to 1.6 .
2013-02-14 16:24:16
Oh so thank you for your opinion RattlesnK, when are you gonna catch up?
2013-02-14 16:24:19
Get Friis
2013-02-14 17:08:30
That's bullshit. NiP is winning everything, fifflaren already prooved to be good enough with awp to kick the asses of random shits like RattlesnK. NiP only need better opponents.
2013-02-14 17:57:42
+1 why this saucer even talking bullshit
2013-02-14 18:10:12
You do understand this iview was made at dreamhack winter?
2013-02-14 18:20:58
ok, so you've just shown us you know nothing. Liking 1.6 and hating css - that's fine, liking NiP and hating VG - that's fine. To make out that RattlesnK is not a very good player, that's a matter of fact not opinion, and you're simply wrong.
2013-02-14 23:14:26
he's right
2013-02-14 20:26:27
Good video, he's often slated for his anger but I have to agree with everything he's said there. Good, honest interview.
2013-02-14 23:11:37
name "Video interview with RattlesnK" they changed.. :D nip now dont need a top awp player :D:D:D:D:D:D
2013-02-15 01:21:02
I agree 100% with rattle. When mousesports.uk played NiP they were able to make it close in large part due to rattle just going ham on NiP and fiffy being unable to stop him.
2013-02-16 22:25:23
And now Fiffy is better than him.
2013-02-18 17:40:01
never
2013-05-06 15:11:43
I agree on this
