if you want tactics, and real answers, don't ask the players. They give vanilla, cliche answers to every question.
Readers like to get to know the players on a personal level, and that's what this article is trying to achieve. I personally don't care what the players are like, what their interests are, but other people do like that stuff, and that's why these articles are written. Most people don't care about tactics and systems, so that sort of stuff is left for fans to discuss them on forums such as this one.
