Profiles – Ron Muyot
Welcome to the first ever Profiles post here on thefanboyseo.com, where we profile people from all walks of life. Basta geeky, pasok. We don’t care kung anong age mo or gender mo or even your affiliation. Basta interesting, we get to feature you. My goal here is to introduce people to other people. Like our guy for the inagural post, Mr. Ron Muyot, I want readers to get to know more about him. I chose this format kasi its faster and easier to put out. As opposed to video where we have to do edits, schedule the interview and all that. Pero wait, we will get to that. For now let’s meet master Ron.
How did you get started with gaming?
I first fell in love with games when I was 6 years old. My father brought home a Family Computer (NES). I couldn’t get my mind off Super Mario and Contra. For fighting games, I started with Street Fighter 2 (as a button masher) on SNES. Started playing Tekken when I was in 6th Grade.
Who do you main for the games you play?
My main in Tekken are Bryan and Nina.
May relate ba sayo with the characters you main?
Well both of them are brutal sadistic badasses. Hahaha. Joke lang. Good boy ako.
How do you train or improve your game?
Ironic as it may sound, I’ve had less time playing since I worked full-time in the gaming industry. The only time I get to play is when I sneak in a few games during events and tournaments or when friends invite me over for some “pindot session”. Pero back when I used to play competitively (a few years ago), I play as many games as I can with as many players as I could. My friends and I would even go to different arcades to challenge the players in that playspot. I also use the “target mentality”. You set a goal. You choose your “target”. Focus on one player you want to defeat. Study his character and playstyle. Learn the proper punish, look for mannerisms and patterns (if there’s any). Once you defeat your target consistently, move on to your next target.
Tips nyo master for gamers who wants to be good at Tekken?
Learn to handle defeat. It’s an essential part of the game. But after every defeat, ask yourself “Bakit ako natalo? What can I do about it?”
Who are you influences in terms of gaming?
Dami. Hahaha. There’s my cousin, Dick Bautista, who introduced me to Tekken. Daigo Umehara and Knee, who in my opinion are the GOATs of their respective games.
I’d say my father, Eddie Muyot and my 2nd father, Tatay Rannie Raymundo.
What Inspires you to do better?
My family who continues to support me in my chosen path (I love you, Mama). And of course, the Filipino gaming community. Sobrang nakakahawa yung passion ng Pinoy gamers. I want to give them something worthy of their passion.
Any message for readers?
