1. Introduce yourself
<roocker> My name is Humberto Patarca, and I live in Caracas, Venezuela..

2. When did you start playing magic? On the league?
<roocker> About 3 years ago and yes, it was on this league I started.

3. What do you like about magic?
<roocker> I have always had an interest for mental games... Although, magic is not a 100% skilled game, but it's much better than other games because you get to know people and tournaments are well-organized

4. What is your favorite format?
<roocker> Extended obv :) I consider limited to be a different game from mtg =[ No matter how much I test, there is always something that's missing.

5. Who do you consider to be tough opponents on the league?
<roocker> I haven’t played here since the master I won, so I don't know many people ;[... but I know D_K PV and Thalai are good players. pG is TOUGH on mws ;), and Pollo and Hugo_8 are also hard to beat.

6. Who would you like to meet from the league in real life?
<roocker> I guess PV, pG, most .es from the league, maybe MW|Core ( I like his decks ). Also D_K bcuz we go way back to m0nk3ym4g1c =)

7. Do you have any accomplishments you wish to boast?
<roocker> Well, I would like to qualify for a PT this year. The problem is here in my country there is only 1 PTQ each season, so I always test like 3 months for it and get sacced on top 8 :(

8. You won a master back in early 2005 then came back to win this one in early 2006. How do you feel when you won your second master?
<roocker> Well it was funny, I haven’t played in the league since that master I won in 2005 :P and when I heard about the invitiational I started testing karsten gifts like mad... so, I guess I’m happy my testing worked :)

9. If you could do one thing to change the league, what would it be?
<roocker> More limited events (I need to test if I want to understand the format ;[ ) and more importance to team ranking.

10. What is your overall goal in magic?
<roocker> Well, obv become a pro :), but for this year I would just like to win a ptq and travel.. I’m sick of only winning online :(

11. Anything else you’d like to add?
<roocker> Nah, it was nice coming back to the league. I guess I’ll be playing the next masters. Hope I win again :) Oh, and thanks for the interview.
