The Last Interview: Feuru

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Towi Putera and my in-game name is Feuru. The name Feuru was inspired by another game.

How did you start playing Dota 2?

I was spending a lot of my time when I was 12 at cyber cafes. I noticed that a lot of people were playing Dota at that time so I decided to give it a go.

What do you love most about Dota 2?

I like the winning moments in the game.

Who are your favourite heroes in Dota 2?

Bloodseeker. With this hero, I can kill enemies easily and also run away easily.

Did you face any challenges when you decided to become a professional esports player?

Initially, my mother wouldn’t like it when I started, but after I started winning tournaments, she slowly accepted it. I guess in a parent’s eyes, playing games is a waste of time for their children until they start to see the potential of earning a living from it.

Who do you like the most in Geek Fam?

I like March because he is funny. I also like ChYuan, no specific reason.

What interest do you have outside of Dota 2?

I like to cook and eat, haha. My favourite Malaysian dishes are Nasi Lemak and Laksa.

Who are the Dota 2 players that you look up to?

Puppey. He is a great captain whom I admire and he manages his team really well.

Describe your personality.

I’m an introvert and I don’t really like to communicate with people.

What would you be doing if you are not a professional gamer?

Perhaps I would be a businessman, open and run my own shop.

Tell us 2 things people do not know about you.

Firstly, I used to be a toxic player in Dota 2 and secondly, I can cook, haha. My specialty is fried rice.

What do you think of the Geek Fam team?

They are all very funny and good people.

What is the fondest memory of your time here in Geek Fam?

Oh, that time when I played Pudge Wars together with March and Keat (Geek Fam Founder). We got into the Finals and we managed to get second place. It was fun.

Who in Geek Fam will you miss the most?

Wheng (Geek Fam Team Manager) and Keat (Geek Fam Founder). I miss the moments when Wheng brings us food. Keat, I remember most the times when he discusses with us after a game.

What is the management of Geek Fam like?

The management of Geek Fam is so much different than the other teams in Indonesia. Geek Fam is more disciplined in terms of scrims and discussions. Especially Keat, I respect him a lot and I learn a lot from him as well.

What did you learn in Geek Fam?

I need to be more talkative during games and communicate more with my teammates.

Any message to the fam?

Keep supporting Geek Fam! Don’t hate the team even when the team loses. The team is trying their best! Thank you, and good bye!
