An Interview With Lord Dilks
Taken shortly after the Fifth Tournament
Tournament HQ: So Lord Dilks, twice champion, twice runner-up, it must have been a great disappointment finishing third.
Lord Dilks: It wasnít a disappointment to come third. It was a supreme honour to take part at all after my life threatening condition. To challenge Doctor Shakib who had no illness whatsoever, in my eyes, is not bad going.
Tournament HQ: You are undisputedly the best player on World Cup Italia 90. Do you think youíll ever be challenged?
Lord Dilks: No next question.
Tournament HQ: After your latest performance do you think that you can realistically challenge your archrival Mr Smith for the title?
Lord Dilks: Yes. I had a perfectly good excuse for coming third this time round. Many people see the result of the fifth tournament as a reflection of my all round Mega Drive ability. I disagree and believe the result showed no reflection whatsoever.
Tournament HQ: Do you feel that Doc Shakib will ever become the Mega Drive Champion or will he have to be satisfied as a runner-up?
Lord Dilks: Doc Shakib has my greatest respects, however, I canít help thinking he was lucky to get into himself into second. He is either going to have to get himself an unrealistic double dose of luck or become a damn sight better.
Tournament HQ: As far a Baron Von Hooton is concerned, how do you think heíll cope without Captain Maltby there?
Lord Dilks: Not very well. He has recently got his Mega Drive back therefore needs to use it to his advantage.
Tournament HQ: Who do you see as your biggest rival in the Sixth Doc Shakib or Mr Smith?
Lord Dilks: Mr Smith for he is my nemesis.
Tournament HQ: How does battling in the tournament compare with normal two-players?
Lord Dilks: Thereís a vast difference due to the enormous amounts of tension and passion that is involved in tournament clashes.
Tournament HQ: What games would you have in your ideal tournament?
Lord Dilks: World Cup Italia 90, Sonic 2, Streets of Rage 2 and Pete Sampras Tennis.
Tournament HQ: Which Mega Drive game do you like best and why?
Lord Dilks: FIFA '95. It is a fantastic footy simulation and better than the ones that followed.
Tournament HQ: What is you first memory of the Mega Drive?
Lord Dilks: Playing on it at Baron Von Hootonís house.
Tournament HQ: Which clashes in the tournament make you nervous?
Lord Dilks: None I donít get nervous. Iím capable of doing well in all four so I have no need to worry.
Tournament HQ: Could you describe yourself in three words?
Lord Dilks: Relaxed, sophisticated and non-modest.
Tournament HQ: What do you hate most about yourself?
Lord Dilks: My temper, which can sometimes be erratic.
Tournament HQ: What would be the first thing you did if you ruled the world?
Lord Dilks: Ban club music.
Tournament HQ: Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
Lord Dilks: If all goes according to plan Iíd be in a penthouse in Pittsburgh. Thatís if everything goes to plan.
Tournament HQ: Lord Dilks thank you for your time.
