Can't believe it has been that long already. Yet at the same time I feel I have grown and been accepted in VG to date.
Before I talk more about VG I want to give some background on my gaming history.
It all started back in the days of The Amiga, Commodore 64, Amstrad
and continued every year up to the NES,SNES , Sega and finally all 3 PS. Plus both Xbox and 360.
PS3 and 360 started my online gaming but it was PC that started it first. My first PC was in 95 but it wasn't until Quake 3 and Unreal that my FPS started on PC.
My first clan was called Black Ops Mercenaries or BOMSF. They created a mod for BF2 which is still used today and reminds me a lot of BF4. When BC2 launched I started playing with a group of guy from the battlefield forums. EAs forums. We got so big that I created our own website which later help us become a clan. BFF, because of the routes of the first 6. With BF3 alot of the clan didnt make the switch. And after 4 years now only a handful remain.
We had our own server for a 1 year, then I found Luetins server and started using his. From already following his Youtube. And hearing him chat about VG I was interested. But still had my clan to think of.
I merged my Clan with another which had some old members. We ended up sharing websites. But what I didnt realise was they were just after my members.
After I was ousted and even lost my site, The other Clan Leader had same privledges and banned me. I recreated my site some BFF members wanted to keep there tags but they were told to change, so
they returned to BFF. I let the clan know my plans on VG and said if any wanted to join then do. I left the battlelog and website open as a memory for the past 4 years.
All are still on my FL today.
With VG I found the same ideals, plus ideas I was trying to implement into my clan. I found everybody welcoming. It is easy to find somebody to play with when you go online.
And you always, well 99% of the time get the gameplay yoy expect.
VG is always looking forward. All its members have an input of some kind. And there is no one person says final, its the Clan as a whole as it should be. Sure some important stuff needs deciding by staff but thats also good that members know everything is in order.
My life has been as crazy as my gaming life at the same time.
4 years ago I was healthy, then I fell on ice and injured my back. I get nerve blockers to help pain. I also banged my head and the same time and get headaches 24/7. So I talk medicine to control them but on top of that I get disabilitating migraines. My eyes were also affected from the fall causing me to wear glasses.
So since then I've been unable to work. I was also at uni the time of the fall as I had become redundant.
Wasn't all bad I met my wife the same time. Over the past 4 years we has gotten married and had our first child. Married 2 years March next year. Our girl is currently 2 months.
So with all this, VG was a chance for me to start fresh. Plus as I have started as XO to now, this give me a role to help out. Only 2 months in here's to the next 10.
