Sasawong: Who Is This Mystical Creature Anyhow?
Everything We Think We Know
The man, the myth, the legend.
Sasawong is a well known Minmatar plexer who currently holds the record for having the most victory points in all of factional warfare.
Though many recognize his name and efforts, little else is know about the man who almost singlehandely defends Minmatar sovereignty.
I had thought it would be an interesting read if I could get an interview with this well-known Minmatar figure….however, I am currently blocked by him (haha) and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
My next plan of action was to mail out a couple of questions to other well known plexers within the militias. I sent out my first mail and before I could send off another, I got a response with ‘Sasawong can go fuck himself’.
Oh boy. Nix that idea.
I asked my old CEO, Aldrith Shutaq, what he knew of this man of mystery. “It is strange, we Amarrians hardly know squat about him. He doesn’t talk to a single one of us. I’ve seen him on at all hours of the day. I had him on my watchlist and every time I’d see him log on I’d get this little tinge of anxiety, knowing he’d be out there running our plexes soon. Usually when I’d confront him, usually me in my Slicer and him in a Thrasher, Rifter, Firetail or sometimes a Rupture, he’d run. Unless, of course, it was an important system, one that the Minnies were concentrating plexing efforts on. Then he’d come back with friends. The first few times I confronted him he’d stand and fight, and he’s not a terrible combat pilot, but he’s not great I’d say either. I beat him solo a few times and after that he got smart. His dedication seems superhuman. I really don’t understand what motivates his plexing efforts. I’m an RP’er and even I get so bored of plexes I just need to do something else. He seems almost like a silent force of nature than another player sometimes.”
A couple of years ago, when Eran Mintor was still in the Minmatar Militia, I asked him if the rumors were true, that Sasawong was really three Japanese guys sharing an account. That was the rumors floating around the Amarr Militia at the time anyhow.
Today I ask Zenton Karvash of the Minmatar to tell me about him, he responds with, “He’s German and really is just one person. Can’t say I know much more.” Apparently Zenton heard the rumors while he was in Amarr Militia back in the day.
So, who exactly is Sasawong?
You tell me.
