  2. Name: Matthew Bahnij Age: 18 Gamertags: Bahnij and sR Bahnij (will be clan tag for halo 4) * I heard about vVv Gaming a long time ago just from playing custom games in Halo 3, but never really looked into it since I already had a sponsor. Recently my team Starting Reality has been trying to get involved with the Halo community more and we thought that vVv Gaming was definitely the place to be with more opportunity's. * As of right now I do not know anyone from vVv Gaming, but I know my teammates have placed with some of the members and community. My teammates are: (sR Neuro, SoiLs and sR Pure). I would love to play with the community and make new friends from vVv. Feel free to message me on Xbox Live * I am interested in joining vVv Gaming because I honestly feel like this is the place to be, this is where it will happen. I have been around Halo for a long time, first playing competitive Halo 2 than to Halo 3 and Reach. I feel that vVv is very professional and carry themselves well and I would love to be apart of that. I would also like to give back to the Halo community and I feel that vVv Gaming is a good outlet to let me do so. * I feel that I can add value best through: Social Media Expert. I am constantly on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. I love to see new content in the Halo world, especially now with all of the new Halo 4 videos that are being brought out from Bravo and 343 Industries. I tweet constantly about my life, gaming and sports. Most gamers that follow me love when I post the "Goose Hall of Shame" when I play Halo with the community I always post when we win a game and effectively "Goose" someone without getting a kill. * I am most excited about Halo 4! I feel that I will place consistently in top 8 and become a national champion by putting fourth countless hours of practice and memorizing strategy to be the best I can be. * My hobbies outside of gaming are: I am a football varsity kicker, play academy soccer and will be signing to play D1 soccer in college this month, an avid chess player, I coach soccer to 2nd-6th graders on the weekdays and just hanging around with friends and my girlfriend of three years. * I have been to many LANS across Ohio and MLG Events. I have LAN with top pros like T2, Snipedown, Best Man, Cpt Anarchy, Eli, Ghostayame at events and pre-tournament LANS. * I have not attended any national events, due to my schedule with soccer and a fall out with the team I was supposed to go with. * My best competitive moment was at a LAN with Str8 Rippin in Mentor, Ohio. It was a double team tournament that we were playing in, and the game had been close all game and finally the score had been 23 to 23 and to win the game I had a double kill on Guardian! My worst moment actually happened at MLG Columbus when my team had gotten knocked out of the tournament on Narrows. I was playing my heart out having 24 kills and we had lost the game 50-42. * I hope to become a professional gamer, signed with company's and to consistently place top 4 at events. I would love to use my fame and success to help others achieve what I had, by hosting community nights and free lessons on how to become the best player you can be.

  3. Matt ‘Bahnij’ Bahnij How long have you been playing competitively? I have been playing competitive Halo since 2006. How many hours during the week do you play your title? I play around 25-40 hours a week. How many hours during the week do you dedicate towards reviewing game play and major tournaments? My team and I review 3 of our own game plays and 1 professional player’s game every day. What are your latest tournament results? Please provide links to brackets, threads, supporting pictures, etc. My last tournament results were +46 at MLG Columbus. What is your next online event? LAN? My next LAN event is October 5th in Columbus, Ohio. I will then be playing in The Arena Halo tournament followed by MLG Dallas. I will be participating in a few local LANs between these events. Have you attended any national events? I have attended MLG Columbus. Are you shy around people you don't know? I am a very outgoing person; I travel often and love meeting and starting relationships with other people, especially fellow gamers! If you've been sponsored before, who was your best sponsor? Why? Yes I was sponsored by VXL Training headquartered in Michigan. They had watched me play Halo 3 and loved my game play so they approached me and my team with a sponsorship. Why are you no longer with them? They have recently expanded and the CEO is involved in two other companies, so they are not able to sponsor. What was your worst sponsor? Why? VXL was my only sponsor and I had a great relationship with them. What do you hope to achieve as a player for vVv Gaming? I hope to achieve fame for both myself and vVv Gaming, and make then the leading Gaming website for not only professional gamers, but for the average gamer as well. Who do you see as your toughest competition? I see Instinct as my toughest competition. I feel this way because I play and LAN with Ogre 2 and he has incredible individual skill. Link to all social media sites used.(Twitter/Facebook/Reddit, etc) Twitter: @Bahnij Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/matt.bahnij Do you stream? If so, link to your channel. youtube.com/startingrealitys Do you create written or video content? If so, link to your content. https://www.youtube.com/user/startingrealitys?feature=watch What does being a professional gamer mean to you? Becoming a professional gamer literally means everything to me. I’m sure a lot of players say this, but in my case, it is 110% true. I have dedicated so much time and money into this game and with the introduction of Halo 4, I know it’s finally our time to shine. How do you think you can improve as a player? As a member of the eSports community? I believe I have a few improvements that I can work on. I believe I need to work on my objective game so that I can increase my overall team play. As a member of the eSport community, I feel that I can work on using my socialization skills through vVv to help bridge the gap between the competitive and casual gamers.
