Latinos is among the largest and most respected Spanish-speaking houses on the North American server, one that has grown organically and rapidly without a need to compromise its values. While he is quick to praise his predecessor and his leading generals, current house leader KuLiao deserves some of the credit.
How did you first find out about Conqueror’s Blade and what attracted you to the game?
I knew about it thanks to a friend who sent me youtube videos about the game and told me that it will be free to play in a few days. The first thing that attracted me was the unit management and troop variety - how each troop complements and counters one another. Added to this was the number of weapons for our warlords.
How did LATINOS get started?
I started playing the game with a friend, but because of our nicknames with silly Spanish meanings, other players saw us in Daicheng and approached us. The founder of LATINOS gave the leader position to my friend and before long, we had three houses filled with people, all under the leadership of a single man. He (ChinChuLin) left the game sometime later, and I took his place. In Liangyun, ours was the first alliance to be created, ElSindicato.
What do you think makes LATINOS different from other houses?
Being a pioneer community born in this game, with people that didn’t know each other beforehand. We’ve also achieved many great things, always facing adversity in our own way, no matter how hard it gets.
Most importantly, we are a community with zero tolerance for toxicity, which creates a comfortable ambience for our members.
Another thing is that we didn’t play the game in its previous versions, so we had to learn along the way. This was very challenging, but we managed to adapt quite well and with time, we faced up to other houses with more experience and people than us.
What do you want to achieve as a house and what will be its legacy?
Our house wants to integrate all Spanish speaking houses and also any North American houses that wish to support us along the way.
I think that our legacy will be that our union makes our strength and although we are from many different countries (more than nine) all of us can work together to achieve big goals.
As a player, what’s your favourite class and why?
I love the Musket. I believe it’s a very versatile weapon to support melee generals without exposing yourself, and to help see the situation from behind and giving instructions during matches. It also possesses high damage.
Who are your most trusted warlords within LATINOS?
All our members are important to us. In fact, we have Discord channels made for suggestions, where all our players can voice their opinions to help make the house better.
Nevertheless, I want to thank three current players and one that, even though he’s not playing anymore, was very important to our house. They are Disconnet (Latinos), Pablo (HouseDrakul), AzumiNishikawa (Diplomat) and the previous leader ChinChuLin.
If someone wanted to join your house or start a trade or pact, what should they do?
We have a council making the decisions with some people that speak various languages.
Should anyone want to get in contact with us, they can talk to any of our council leaders and they will take care of it. (Discord contacts: AnGelo#5807, Junapix#0010)
Are there other houses that you admire or that you consider to be natural allies?
We consider RisingSun as allies because it’s a house that fought with us in some big wars and we respect their members them a lot because of that. We also welcome any Spanish house that wishes to get in contact with us.
Conversely, are they are many houses that you'd consider mortal enemies?
We consider Ming and their allies as our mortal enemies at the moment, because of their ideals and the way they’ve treated smaller houses in their region.
In the face of trying to maintain the spirit of the game, we believe that Ming is the bigger threat right now… And we also have some history with one of their allies.
Our first enemy was the house RedLotus, which doesn’t exist anymore but most of its members moved to Sovereign, which has thus become our second great enemy.
Many thanks to KuLiao for answering our questions. If you know of a house that is deserving of similar recognition that we should profile in the future article, please make your nomination via our Discord channel.
