How long have you been a TOG member? Since June 2006, so just over four years. According to Regulater you get less time for murder these days…
What previous games were you playing before BFBC2? My first real foray into online gaming was with Battlefield 2. I played a fair bit of the Project Reality Mod before joining TOG. Unfortunately once I got involved in the GameArena BF2 competitions I found I didn’t have enough time to continue with PRM.
How long have you been playing BFBC2? Since it was in open Beta. According to my stats it’s over 200 hours.
What is your favourite kit selection, gadgets etc? Being a part of the TOG|Griffins means I have specialised in Medic. My kit selection seems to change after every patch, but currently I run Medic with the MG3, Tracer Dart, Magnum Ammo and Extra Ammo. For the vehicular perk it depends on the map and my role, but my default is the secondary weapon.
What is your favourite map and why? I don’t have a favourite. I like a lot of the maps, especially the way they all require different strategies. Some favour infantry, others are armour-heavy. Things also change a great deal depending on whether it’s Rush or Conquest etc.
As long as I’m part of a squad that’s focused on teamwork I’m pretty happy on any map.
What do you like most about the game? Playing as a part of TOG.
What do you like least about the game? The interface and the bugged spawn logic are bad, but in my opinion the worst thing is the lack of a Battle Recorder.
What would you like to see improved? The end of round team scores need to be displayed - it’s an absolute must-have for ladder matches, and I can’t understand why such a simple and essential thing was omitted.
If you could meet one person dead or alive… who would it be? My great grandmother. She died when I was young, but I remember some of the conversations I had with her as a child and I wish I could go back and talk to her again. She was an amazing lady who was well traveled and had lived through two world wars. She was born in the 1880s and lived to be almost 100.
