– I come from Sweden and I started playing BLC back in 2011. I like to play BLC most of the time

Describe your trickiest Stalker combo.

– M2>Space>EX1>Meteor>M1>Frostshard>M1

Where are you from? When did you start playing BLC?

– I’m from Sweden (or India, according to most others) from a very pretty city called Karlstad. I started playing BLC during closed beta, like Spring 2010, (thanks to) a friend having a beta invite…! I used to play at least 3-4 hours a day, now one hour+ depending on if it’s Sunday or not.

Tell us about yourself!

– My name is Carl Carlton Carlsson, or so I wish – one of the three is correct. I’ll turn 17 on September 9th. I’ll bait you and outsmart you. Used to play a bunch of Pokemon when I was younger (Pokemon Ruby with like 400 hrs play time), used to cable-link with my cousin and Poke-rape him. I quickly realised that pokemon is a game that requires too little skill, so I moved onto mashing buttons in Super Smash Bros and played through Ocarina of time like 21 times when I was eight (also played through World of Warcraft and Dota).

Fast forward 9 years and poof, I’m radiating an aura of swag.

What’s your favorite Bloodline?

– Metal Warden, I guess.

Describe your trickiest bloodline combo.

– Couldn’t find words to describe it, so I drew it instead.

What advice would you give to players just starting out?

– Don’t give up until you have at least 50 wins – preferably not at that point either. The game becomes more fun when you learn the basics. I’d say it takes about 250-300 games before you actually understand the depth of the game. Don’t play what others want you to play, just make your own stay as fun as possible :]

Any final comments before we have you deported finish up?

– I wanna give a shout out to my dog Winston.

Lothars is a BLC vet who’s allergic to chicken and finds curry disgusting. Check out his stream at http://twitch.tv/lothars1.

Another streamer returns to BLC

imback

BLC welcomes back daowner123, former streamer looking to once again fire up his channel with some raunchy group team action. Daowner123 averages 200-300 views per session and his channel boasts over 100 followers, so we are pleased to have him back where he belongs – here streaming BLC.

Daowner123 would like to give a shout out to his homeboys John and Jared, and you can find where to watch them rock some games here in our streams section.

Send in your own content!

The Submit Content feature is now available on Baako’s Rave! Send in your DIE/BLC-related stuff, and we will get it hosted for you. Upcoming bloggers and web journalists have the option of writing their own article, so please indicate via the provided option if you would like us to publish as it is.

Why should I submit content?

Publishing content such as guides, twitch streams, and more is a great way to raise your profile in the community. Gain more renown for your clan, or become a respected voice on bloodlines/strategy through your public contributions.

Also, building an internet following creates some awesome opportunities that a lot of gaming personalities enjoy today. John Bain (TotalBiscuit)Bachir Boumaaza (Athene) and Sean Plott (Day9) began their career posting stuff from just one, single game.

Why Baako’s Rave?

Baako’s Rave is on track to becoming on of the biggest resources for BLC and DIE, with a view to turn dot.com and expand coverage into other games. You can be sure that stuff that you post will not be tucked away behind 9 web clicks to gather dust – it’ll be up front and heavily trafficked by fans and prospective players from the community. With the upcoming release of Stunlock’s new title DIE, our community site is well placed to attract lots of followers from both fanbases.

The site right now is a culmination of all the great contributions and feedback we’ve received so far – a warm thanks to the awesome players that contributed!! We’re looking forward to seeing more from the community in the future ❤

So you think you know Ranid?

There are times where I feel like I do pretty well with Ranid; a cool F>M2>E combo here, some tricky camouflage feinting there.

But then I watch videos like this that totally burst my bronze league bubble. Check out this excellent advanced guide to ranid assassin, brought to us last week by NiceBabyBLC ft. Bloods4ssin. You’ll get some great dual commentary and a bunch of expert tips on gameplay, med/trait spec and advanced combos. GL HF!

BLC Streamer Krispigt in the Limelight

Our site’s Weekly Featured streamer Krispigt recently hit 50+ subscribers on his channel. He’s put up a gameplay montage to celebrate and show his appreciation, showing off some fierce 2v1 fights.
