Celebrity Spotlight: Caples

05.11.18

Hello Players!

This week we chat with someone who loves torment his friends, someone who loves to play aggressive and murder other players in the most imaginative ways possible.

This week’s Celebrity Spotlight is…

...Caples

We asked Caples a bunch of questions so you could get to know him better. Here's what he had to say:

What’s your name?

Caples

Where are you from?

The Bay Area

Tell us about what got you into streaming. How long have you been doing it?

I was looking for something more than just playing the same games over and over with the same people. I saw the good times friends were having with it so I decided to start for myself. I've been streaming for about a year now. As an affiliate since whenever that stuff came out. I'm not the best with dates.

What keeps you streaming?

I do it more as a hobby than anything. It's something to do which lets me interact with some wonderful human beings. Going places with it would be rad, but I'm here to be a dork and have a good time with other dorks.

In short; the people.

Besides SOS, what other games do you like to play?

I love old N64 games, but I can be playing anything from Cities: Skylines to ARMA 3 to whatever the newest VR titles are. PUBG. ARK. Stellaris. GTA RP. Hunt. Onward. To name a handful.

I even begrudgingly admit I still play League of Legends.

It's a good time waster.

What do you like to do when you’re not creating content?

Be a nerd. I recently started a business supporting SMBs around me and taking on their IT projects. When I'm not trying to get that off the ground I can be working on my cars, building computers for friends, rebuilding this motorcycle I got recently... You name it. Hikes are rad.

If only I would get myself to the gym again.

How long have you been playing SOS?

Since the beginning. So a year now? It's been a long time. Man. Is this what old people feel like?

I miss the days where I got my own heatmaps from alpha weekends... Good times.

What was the moment in-game that got you hooked on SOS?

Probably my first real betrayal. I feel like everybody knows there's nothing I love more than betraying my closest friends. Mizizy knows. My favorite thing to do in Deceit is murder her.

There's something about it that just gets me. Like that time I held Mizizy at gunpoint and told her to hold an open poison grenade until it killed her.

Basically I like to torment Mizizy.

Love you, girl.

What is your favorite thing about the new BR mode?

The pace. Sometimes I just don't want to sit down for 30-40 minutes at a time just to play a single game of Fortnite or PUBG, you know? Or getting halfway through a really disappointing game where you never see anybody then you get got. 15 minutes of running around. Wasted. Sometimes I just want to get in, murder, get out, or get taken out. If I die early then NBD. Queue back up. Games are short and sweet.

If a round of SOS featuring you were a movie, what would it be called?

The Hills Have Eyes.

God, I love night mode.

Do you role-play as any characters in SOS: Classic? What are their names? Describe them.

Not usually. I'll do random gag names on occasion, but mostly it's just me. I feel like I'm a character enough. Playing ice cream truck music while dragging the relic hupia down from Cradle and using them to kill somebody. Creeping the hell out of people in night mode with children reciting poems eerily. Just doing weird stuff.

Like have relic fights on the extract.

Or do the Cha-Cha Slide on the extract.

Or... whatever these are.

How would you describe your style of gameplay in SOS?

I potato.

Until I don't.

https://clips.twitch.tv/PiercingBenevolentDugongPhilosoraptor

Pretty aggressive, I would say. I don't like sitting around. I'm not a fan of hiding unless it's with the explicit aim of creeping somebody out. I like murdering other players in the most imaginative ways I can come up with, and you don't get that by hiding from everybody.

Any words of wisdom?

Just have a good time with it. Whatever it is. People take all this stuff far too seriously.

Also don't use the AK. It's bad. #HBKforlyfe

Anything else you want to say? Any shoutouts?

You guys are knocking it out of the park so far. Keep up the great work. I'm thoroughly enjoying the new mode. Also please have the restraining order lifted so I can come visit the office.

Kwolve. You're my brother. Keep up the amazing work, man. I've thoroughly enjoyed watching you succeed and I'm looking forward to more of the same. You're the man, man.

Mizizy. You're a dork. We need to play more games where we can murder each other.

Heather. You're my favorite.

Daylady. Get good. But that WAS a good jump shot.

Emma. I am not romantically interested in Amber. Stop it.

The rest of you know I love you, but it would be looking like a high school yearbook in here if I continued.
