I thought i would put up a post of who i am and where i've been.
I joined Veritas Gaming when we moved away from the clan Shadow Companion (A totally different story there) back in May 2010. I started off as a squad member for Phantom Squad in the Call of Duty Division - Modern Warfare 4. Over the time i progressed into becoming the Squad leader of which i joined very much. We used to do weekly Gamebattles of which we got into the top 8 i think it was.
I used to have general roles around the VG site as well. I used to be the Warrant Officer and deal with all the awards requests and announcements as well as Validation at one point.
I moved away from COD and become the Killzone Division Officer. Killzone was a good game but everyone slowly lost interest and we all went our separate ways. By this point i had a few life changers. i was just finishing school, i had exams to take, colleges to apply for and a job to find, as well as new girlfriend to keep happy - Been together near on 4 years now. The solution for this was becoming the Game Officer for Minecraft. A role where i was not dedicated to weekly practice session, or where i would have to rush home to make sure i'm online ready to start. This role was quite laid back in that respect, but i still had to keep the server up and running, learn the insides of plugins and how they all work, fix the ones that don't and find ones that don't work well with each other. Although i didn't have to make it back in time for practices, i could easily loose a Saturday early morning to mid evening updating bits, adding new games and general maintenance.
It got to a point where i started a new job and worked unsociable hours, 5am starts in the morning or late finishes in a after noon shift, 1am. With the little spare time that i had sitting down to look at some minecraft code did not take my fancy. Eventually i stepped down allowing new and more enthusiastic members to take my place.
I got into battlefield on the PC and come back to VG for a while as a flexi but lost interest in that.
A little about me:
I'm Ollie, 20 years old and from the south of England. I use to do a lot of graphics design of which i had a signature shop here in VG and made over a total of 80 signatures for the members. Not sure if you will be able to see the link as i believe it was archived - http://www.veritasga...-graphics-shop/
I'm into a motorsport called Drifting, i started off in a 1.6 Mazda Mx5 and now i've moved into a BMW e36 318 with a 1.9 140BHP engine swap. I did have a progress thread of the MX5, maybe ill do one for the BMW if anyone's interested. - http://www.veritasga...ad/#entry123067 - https://www.youtube....5th4gaOkEsaykfQ
I've given up on consoles, i'm into PC gaming, of which i think i'm gonna put some more time and even money into my current rig, the thread needs updating - http://www.veritasga...build/?p=117310
I want to get back into VG, i'm finding i enjoy COD AW on PC really good and want to play comparative within VG. I will be taking the next steps into see who plays it and when next.
I hope this all clears everything up, if you have any questions just ask. I hope to stay around longer this time!
