I want you to think of your favorite online game. Now imagine the things you wish you could fix about it yourself. Well, there is a thriving mod community for Blizzard’s popular MMO World of Warcraft that has done exactly that. This time around, I sat down with my good friend Zensunim, the creator behind various Warcraft mods, including the GTFO mod, to discuss how he got started with modding the game and why it is necessary.
So Zen, Care to Introduce Yourself?
Obviously, You’ve Been Playing for a Long Time. And to do a Custom Mod Would Require Some Kind of Knowledge, Where Did You Get That From?
For Those That Don’t Know, What Exactly is the GTFO Mod That You’ve Developed?
Not a Question Here, But Wanted to Separate Out the Moment GTFO Became More Public
I Learned That GTFO Could Be Used as an Accessibility Option
Now, I’ve Seen You Stream Working On Your Mod When New Content Drops. But Can You Go Over a Bit of How You Actually Work On Updating the Mod When New Content is Released?
Now You’ve Told Me a Story Before about Somebody Related to Blizzard Actually Using Your Mod. Do.You Remember That Story?
These quotes are mainly some of the highlights of our conversation. Zensunim and I have known each other for quite a few years and had a rather lively conversation about different MMO’s. Talking about various mechanics that exist within these MMO’s. I would strongly suggest that you give this interview a full listen as it was really fun for both of us to actually do this. Man, I certainly have to sit down with Zen again in the future to have a focused talk just about MMO mechanics. Let me know if that is something you folks would be interested in.
I want to take this time to give a big thank you to Zensunim for sitting down with me for this interview. It was really interesting to hear both his insight into the world or Wow and the creation of various add-ons that he has made. The versatility of WoW and its mod community will never cease to amaze me. Make sure to check out Zen’s mods if you haven’t. Also, give him a follow on Twitter and check him out on Twitch. He really loves his Hitman games and you might even catch him working on GTFO for the next update.
