Oyorra Arroyo Press Conference

Recommended Posts

1. Palindrome day was on Oct 10, due to the date being 8/10/18, forming the palindrime 81018. Did you do anything to celebrate because your full name is a palindrome?

 

2. Any advice for Rookies?

 

3. Who out of all the new rookies do you think is the most promising?

 

4. What tip do you have for people who want to be goal scorers? (Like me?)

 

5. What non-NHL league is the most exciting in your opinion?

I live in backwards land where we put the month first so this was over 2 months ago for me (I think you meant Oct. 8th anyway). So no I didn't do anything special (or if I did back in August I have forgotten by now.

2. Any advice for Rookies?

 

Keep updating and don't get discouraged if you don't perform great the first season or two. While we had a couple of rookies go crazy last season, it usually takes a season or two to really get your legs under you. Veterans will have 3-4x your TPE, so you generally won't be an MVP candidate out the box, but if you keep at it, you'll close that gap and be competitive. I didn't even feel like I was really a notable player until my 3rd season and now going into my 4th people are drafting me for VHFL.

3. Who out of all the new rookies do you think is the most promising?

 

Ryan Kastelic has the most TPE out of the bunch, so he's probably the most promising on a technical standpoint, but I gotta rep out for my new teammates. Oleksiy Revchenko @AndrewWarren13 seems to be ahead of the pack TPE-wise, but Cayden Saint @Symmetrik, Karl von Moltke @alecbama, and Lando Baxter @Elhandon are all part of the Wranglers' future, and it's my duty to make sure they grow into the players I know they can be and keep the Calgary Cup Caravan rolling for seasons to come!

4. What tip do you have for people who want to be goal scorers? (Like me?)

 

I think the new trend is to ignore Passing and dump everything into Scoring and Skating. I'm not sure how wise that is. I will say that Defense and (possibly to a lesser extent but I'm going all in on it for science) Puck Handling are a lot more important than you think they are. Strength probably isn't that important tbh, unless you're a Center then you'd might want it some for face-offs.

5. What non-NHL league is the most exciting in your opinion?

 

Well I have to plug the EFL since I'm a blue over there and football sims are really what got me into sim leagues in the first place. I've also been semi-active at the SBA and was excited that I got drafted into a championship quality team, but then a trade happened that created a super team and my interest dropped quite a bit (they revised contract rules after the fact to curb that going forward but it was deflating at the time).

Trump brings a hefty megaphone while Trudeau has a stack of waffles and maple syrup. As Trudeau throws syrup laden waffles at Trump, Trump responses by shouting things like "fake news" and "you call this syrup?! Ant Jahmeemee would be rolling in her grave!" Eventually some of the syrup gets into Trumps eye and while he flinches, he slips on some waffles and lands dome first into his megaphone. He does not get up.

2. What stinks when living and smells good when dead? (riddle time, baby)

 

A cow? (And later a steak).

 

Quote

3. What is your favourite sport? Who is your favourite team? 

 

To watch, I'd probably say American football, with basketball close behind. My favorite teams are the Ravens and the Kings, respectively.

 

Quote

4. Fuck one, kill one, marry one - GO! (Blake Lively, Beyonce, Margot Robbie). Google, em.

 

I'd marry Blake Lively just because I have nearly the same name and it would fuck with people. I'd fuck Beyonce because if it's good enough for Jay-Z it's good enough for me. I'd kill Margot Robbie because she's the last one left.

 

Quote

5. If you could invent something right now, what would your beautiful inventions be?

 

I'd make some kind of shrink ray so I could just shrink down all the merchandise at work, then when it is purchased, you set a timer for it so that it returns to regular size after you get home.

I missed these so some are dated but here we go!

Yes I am, even a Finals loss is better than not getting there!

2. Your reactions on your trade?

 

I wasn't expecting it but I'm glad that I got a chance to continue playing for a contender.

 

On 12/23/2018 at 7:19 AM, hedgehog337 said:

3. Do you think Toronto can compete this season?

 

I did when I got traded and it seems like my faith was well placed.

 

On 12/23/2018 at 7:19 AM, hedgehog337 said:

4. Your opinion on their future?

 

I'm just living in the now. Hopefully we can keep this party going as long as possible!

5. Are you mad at Keaton Louth for signing with other team?

 

Not at all, it's a player's prerogative to go where they think they will be best. 

 

On 12/23/2018 at 7:19 AM, hedgehog337 said:

6. Can you say that your career is good so far?

 

I've won a Founder's Cup and a Continental Cup, and I just led the league in goals, so I say I've done pretty well for a 1st gen that had no clue about hockey going in!

1. Your player is pacing pretty well from a HoF perspective, so on that note, anymore goals with Arroyo?

2. What do you think of VHL expansion?

3. What is the likelyhood that you re-create after Arroyo?

4. As a first gen, what are your impressions of the league thus far?

5. You mentioned your not too familiar with hockey, has the VHL changed that or only made it more confusing?

6. Any history or reasoning behind the name Oyorra Arroyo?

7. Are you proud you're one of the best S60 players?

 

Yeah, it's always good to be on top, though I think the only others still active from that class are Dragomir and Iseult. It's also telling how much team matters for success. Dragomir has had a significant TPE lead forever, yet he had to suffer Quebec for years.

He's been great so far.

It can be a bit quiet at times but we've had good times as well.

Game recognizes game.

Winning more cups is the ultimate goal. I think I'd need to get some personal awards if I were to make a HoF push, but the fact that it's a possibility at this point is more than I expected for my first player.

2. What do you think of VHL expansion?

 

I think expansion is great for any league that can support it. More spots means more players get a chance to shine. EFL recently expanded and everyone agrees it's a lot better for it.

  6. Are you excited for the World Cup? Do you think you will make the cut?
  7. Who do you think will be joining your team in the draft?

Pretty likely, though I'm not sure what I'll make yet. Part of me wants to go complete opposite and try just a straight goon defender who just loads up on hitting stats but I don't know how viable that actually is.

 

Quote

4. As a first gen, what are your impressions of the league thus far?

 

I'm liking it so far, probably partially because I've landed on good teams that have been successful. Most of the changes I've seen since I've joined have been good ones and it's always good to have a leadership team willing to make changes when necessary.

5. You mentioned your not too familiar with hockey, has the VHL changed that or only made it more confusing?

 

I probably know a little more now than I did when I first started but still not much more than the basics.

 

Quote

6. Any history or reasoning behind the name Oyorra Arroyo? 

 

Not really, I just tried to think of a last name that could be read backwards and still kinda work lol.

Durian-Watersmellon Blast! No because I don't endorse rival brands (and it'd probably smell bad).

I'm hopeful we can take the gold this year, as it's the last thing I need to join the Triple Gold Club. 

 

 

Just realized I already answered this week so I'll claim these tomorrow...
