Favorite Class and why you decided to play it:
1. Medic, we were lacking specific classes in miNt and no dedicated medics were to be seen in SA. I decided to salvage what I learned from my sniper/soldier experience and put all my efforts in becoming a valued medic.
2. Soldier, I love the pure brutality of this class and with the right source of inspiration you can become quite a good teamplaying soldier.
Your favorite players: Joint: pure determination, Kaboos: pure teamplayer, _enemy: pure white with a fro and generally everyone I talk to :>
Most Kills in one round: 5 on cp_granary last point (pickup as medic) and 4 pantheon members on cp_badlands last point (clan skirmish as medic) and I think ~24 as soldier on pub
Best moment in TF2 and why:
1. Getting asked to leave the pickup (due to being “too drunk”) and then getting highest score as demoman
2. Beating Brazen.TF2 3-2 on badlands for the first time.
3. Forcing opposition’s uber with my Ubersaw and then surviving to use the advantage gained from Ubersaw and win the round.
Frag Vidz: None (yet >:D)
A bit about yourself
Studying Information Technology Communication Networks, something like the internet comes to mind.
I do networking, so you can guess I have a short temper (ask swift peeps :P) and I enjoy my fair share of alcohol (ask #alcoholarmy peeps). What you guys probably dont know is that I actually enjoy helping out new people and giving them tips from what I had to learn the hard way. No, that doesn’t make me a caring person, just a helpfull, short-tempered medic that curses alot. 🙂

Advice for new players
Aim to be unpredictable, it might make you survive long enough to save your clan-mates.
What you think new players need to do to better them and become more competitive?
Gather information on the class you want to play, learn everything you can: from exploits to scripting. For me using scripts is a sign of simply “doing your damned homework” and not a way of trying to be a hacker. Sure you get unfair scripts, but all of them have been judged and *fixed* if deemed necessary.
After gathering information, try establishing relationships with fellow TF2’ers who share your ambitions and work together on improving.
Last little tip: don’t take everything too personal while meeting new people in #TF2 or clan servers, but don’t let anyone walk over you! :>
See you in #alcoholarmy,
