The People column publishes interviews with RF staff and members weekly. This week we interviewed RPF
Warlord Head General, Mishka.
RNM: Hello Mishka, thank you for letting me interview you today! I would like to start with, how has your time as being a Rebel Federation head commander been so far?
Mishka: It has been awesome so far. I joined the rebel federation back in 2017 on the 5th of October and have been working towards this position ever since, so you can imagine it feels pretty amazing! Im really enjoying being a head general because I get to help organise important events, help make decisions affecting the future of the RF, additionally i get to lead entire events which, although it is a bit intimidating at first, amazing to do and lastly I am able to help the RF grow and thrive in so many ways.
RNM: That’s great to hear! Glad you’re so motivated. What was it like to rise in the ranks like you did?
Mishka: Well its been one hell of a ride to say the least. In the beginning it took me pretty long to start reaching a significant rank, I was completely new to armies and had no idea what i was doing. After I had gotten to know the army and the people I got really motivated and did my best to continue climbing the ranks. Reaching mod was an amazing milestone for me and it took me nearly half a year to get there. During my time as a mod i faced quite a few setbacks both minor and major to say the last, some out of my control but most caused by myself. Despite this I did my best to continue working hard and to stay motivated. Achieving owner was a very difficult task and I admittedly “shot myself in the foot” countless times but ive finally made it and im insanely happy that I didnt quit along the way.
RNM: I see! Your journey has been incredible. As a member of HCom, what are your hopes for yourself personally in the RF?
Mishka: Personally I want to do everything I can to help the RF grow and thrive. I want to be known for contributing to RF and I want to be known for working hard and helping the Federation in any way possible.
RNM: Grand ambitions! I like it. To wrap up this interview: what do you see in the future of the RF?
Mishka: I want the RF to continue growing to the point where we can expand to even more games. I also want the RF to become well known not only within the CP community but also within our other communities and I want our divisions and clans to continue functioning successfully.
RNM: That’s amazing, Mish! Thank you for letting me interview you today.
Mishka: No problem, and thank you for interviewing me!
