    The Member of the week:
    @Draulon ,
    The project lead.

    I chose Draulon for the First AoA Newsletter because he his the project lead, and i bet some of us would really like to know the guy who is running Age Of Aincrad.


    Interview to Draulon:

    Q:Tell us a bit About you: Who are you?
    A:My name is Blaze Lengyel, I am an Indie game developer from Hungary. Currently my life evolves around Martial Arts, E-Sports and game development.

    How old are you?
    I am sixteen years old, turning seventeen this March.

    When did you join AoA?
    I joined AoA around 2013 April as a Level Designer.

    What is the origin of your username?
    From a Runescape NPC called Draul Leptoc, I merged it with my game tag (Leonov back then) and so It became Draulon.

    What career do you plan to pursue?
    Currently Game Developing or 3D art seems the most sensible choice, however I might fulfill my desires in this career simply by making Age of Aincrad, so I am open to experiencing new careers as well. Preferably exciting ones which do not involve slow things.

    What is your favorite MMO as of right now?
    My alltime favourite is Runescape. Pretty much what defined my childhood and kickstarted my love for gaming and a special game experience. It's an MMORPG which is only enjoyed by certain type of gamers, and I am one of them. I am also pretty sure without Runescape, I would not be here where I am. It was the spark which ignited the desire to design my own games.
    I played World of Warcraft, Tera, Rift, LOTRO and ArcheAge but didn't really find any enjoyment in them. Perhaps the best experience since Runescape was Eldevin and FFXIV which I started playing as of recent.

    What are your strengths?
    This is a pretty subjective thing. If I would be proud of something it would be what we accomplished togather with Age of Aincrad and my persistency involved by not giving up on something I want.

    How did you became the Project lead?
    I guess I was next in command after the previous Project Lead. When he left I got the role.

    Is there anything else you would like to say?
    I never imagined I would end up here when I joined almost one and a half years ago. Of course I haven't anticipated 90% of the things which happened to me since for better or worse, but overall I think it's worth it. I saw an interesting quote which helped me get through hard times a lot. Something along the lines of: "If I would give up here, I would be back at where I started, a place where my biggest wish was to be where I am now"
