What is your current division in Ranked? Gold V
How long have you been playing ranked? Since February 2013
What rank were you at the start of last season? Bronze 5
What rank were you at the end of last season? Silver 1
Have you ever been banned in-game? If so, why? I have not
What is your favorite champion and role? Why?
My Favorite Champion is Lee Sin, I love the high mechanical aspect of Lee and the outplay potential he has in his kit. I was a support main for a long time, but I have moved into the jungle this season and I am having some success. I like the fact that as the jungler you can somewhat control the map, snowball lanes, and make shot calls that will increase the potential to win the game.
How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom?
I was actually an applicant for the Black Ops 2 division here about a year ago. I am good friends with BodyRoTx and PapaBear, I had stopped playing cod last year to make the switch over to league of legends. I abandoned my vVv application back in June to focus on training and school related things but I am back and ready to make more friendships on here and have some fun.
Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How do you know them?
I know various people on here as I was a COD applicant back in the day. I have been playing with/against BodyRoTx since Ps3 came out a while back, we met up on COD on ps3 and then we found each other when we made the switch to Xbox a few years later. I also know PapaBear, FlashKetchum, Addiction, Bullet, and some others that I have met along the way.
Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming?
I am interested in joining backup to make some more friendships, be a part of a tight knit community that is serious but at the same time is competitive and likes to have some fun. I’d like to be able to find a group of people to play ranked 5s with, and people that can help me improve my game and make me better.
What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming?
I am a current Division 1 lacrosse player in my senior year of college with about a month left (boy time fly’s), I love to play guitar, listen to new music, and I enjoy bodybuilding and training in my spare time. I also am an avid reader, I enjoy reading Navy SEAL books, and other various history books as well.
Do you have competitive tournament experience?
I have played in various LAN and online COD and RSV2 tourneys, I was one win away from making the Orlando MLG tourney for RSV2, that was a fun experience though!
Have you attended any national events?
MLG Orlando in 2007, spectator.
What do you hope to achieve competitively this season?
I hope to reach high Plat ELO and possibly make it to Diamond, as well as get a good ranked 5s team going soon.
Are you interested in finding a ranked 5s team to play on?
What level of seriousness are you looking for (semi-serious, serious, or professional aspirations)?
Semi-Serious to serious level, I love to win, I love strategy, and just playing with a good group of guys that work well together would be awesome.
What are your goals for playing on a ranked team?
I would like to hit plat ELO, that would be great, or higher. I am a jungle main, but I can play pretty much any role that is needed though.
When are you generally available to practice, and how many nights per week are you looking to practice with a team?
Do you have any interest in shot calling, analysis, or being a team captain?
I can play pretty much every day, especially at night,
I would say as a jungler I can make good shot calls, but I am very knowledgeable and can analyze what mistakes were made as well, including my own.
