Horseface, also known as Fotten, is not only the prime Astaroth of Europe. He is not only a fierce competitor but also the man behind Horseface’s (what a surprise) Zoetrope – the prime source of high-level SC matches on youtube!
If you had to introduce yourself in three sentences to some SoulCalibur player who didn’t know you, what would you say?
I pretty obviously run Horseface’s Zoetrope. Play Astaroth. And post some dank wall combos on twitter.
What is the origin or meaning of your nickname?
I had horseheads on my Asta customs so I obviously named myself a_Horseman when I needed a new username for twitch. But the streamer Eyelashwish kept calling me horseface so I changed it because Horseface is way cooler.
How did it happen that you ended up playing fighting games?
Calibur is my first fighting game which I just bought to play casually with friends because they wanted to and I just never stopped.
Who do you main in SC6 and why?
I main Astaroth because he’s a big boi that does big damage and I find his slow nature and diverse kit fun.
What is your opinion regarding SC6?
Soulcalibur just hits differently, I’ve tried many fighting games after but none of them quite measures up.
If you could change one single thing about SC6 what would that be?
A better experience for players new to Calibur. Frame data in training mode, better position reset options, more accurate bot replays, and access to all characters in training mode regardless of DLC purchase.
What do you consider to be your greatest SC6 achievement and why?
Starting the Zoetrope has probably been my best SoulCalibur achievement, but I also 1hit Domitto in tournament that one time, I guess that was pretty cool too!
Please answer a single question that you were not asked but you would like to answer!
What happens when the Zoetrope gets monetized?
The plan is to put the money back into the tournament prize pools, I don’t know how much youtube is gonna pay but it’s gonna be cool either way. So like, subscribe and stuff.
Thank you for the interview!
