I actually applied a few months ago to vVv Gaming i don't think my application back then was i guess you could say up to date. I joined a Hardcore Gaming community called Deadhouse gaming (www.deadhousegaming.com) where in there rank structure i was a master sergeant. I was able to help out there community a lot by teaching members the layout of competitive cal of duty starting with helping them develop knowledge of the game. I think that is the most important aspect is knowing what you are getting yourself into. I also helped and taught players how to improve gun skill, call outs, hand eye coordination and discipline. I was a very good and active member and people there really did look up to me. I left Deadhouse Gaming on my own departure due to several things. The main reason is i wanted to start a Core division for months i tried but i just could not get it going and i was kind of tired playing hardcore. Adding value is an important aspect of being in vVv Gaming. How will you, personally, add value? I think i have strong knowledge in Call of Duty i am a competitive player on the verge of becoming professional. I have something that not a lot of pro/am players have i deeply enjoy helping and coaching other players to become better. I am always here to help rather it be personal or in game problems. I have the ability to make others happy and proud of themselves at the end of the day. Also i am a very dedicated and loyal player i am on 8-10 hours a day improving my own game play. I am also VERY active in forums. Are you familiar with vVv's Geek to Me articles and Losers Bracket Podcast? If so, what are some of your favorites and why? I have herd of them i have not yet read or listened to any. I do plan on it though. How long have you been playing video games? I have been playing video games since i can remember. Competitively i started playing counter strike 1.6 in 2002 and then moved onto the Call of Duty franchise in COD4 How many hours per week do you devote to gaming? At the minimum 35-40 What’s the hardest game you’ve ever beaten? Pokemon Red What games coming out are you looking forward to play and why? Black ops 2 or Iron Wolf i'm not sure what they are calling it yet. I am looking forward to it because i herd that it is going to focus on competitive play and i think that is awesome! What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? I play magic the gathering competitively also it is a card game if anyone wants to check it out (www.magicthegathering.com) I travel and meet great people around the United States playing it. Where do you see yourself next year at this time? Hopefully competing in big Call of Duty tournaments What kind of competitive tournament experience do you have? I have been doing Gamebattles since MW2 where i was on a top page Hardcore team (A!M) and also i have been to MLG events and also local events (njhalo) I have been competing really since i started playing FPS games. My biggest accomplishment was in Counter Strike 1.6, my team won a NYC LAN tournament i think it was 5000 dollars. I did not attend but i was a part of the team i was to young at the time. Have you attended any national events (MLG, WCG, CPL)? I attended MLG Raleigh, Orlando, and Providence. I did not compete because of last minute team changes i just spectated. Orlando i was suppose to be on the second Obey team, Team Solace Pro with Bogoroh, Killswitch, and pronade. How long have you been playing competitively? Since Counter Strike 1.6 so around 2002 What was your best competitive moment? What was your worst? My best was a 1 vs 4 ace against Obey. My worst i guess is getting turned on. What do you hope to achieve, competitively? Helping the community and attending major LAN tournaments in the future hopefully becoming pro and making a name for myself. I think i deserve it i have done a lot of helping in the past and also i disciplined and practice myself very hard. What was your toughest competition? The 10k Frag Cup, i was playing with a squad that has never played variant and are used to hardcore so i had to clutch a lot in our matches. We did make round 3 though which i was happy with. How do you see vVv Gaming adding value to you? I see vVv Gaming adding great value to me and my life right now. I really am not doing anything right now but playing Call of Duty due to several reason that i'm sure you guys and girls do not want to hear. I think it will help me mentally get out of this hump i am in. I will feel accomplished being in an amazing organization like vVv Gaming and maybe it can help let some of this bad luck out of me and open a new doorway in my life. I think what i need the most is a good community and good friends. So guys and girls thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read my application i will see you all on the forums and wish me luck!
