BC2 Player Interview #19
Member Interview #19
A little about yourself: Well where do I begin and how much do a really wanna share with you guys? My name is Steve, I’m approximately 6ft tall, 70kgs, and I hate country music. That is all.
Family? Sons/Daughters? Single, no kids. Sharing a place with my sister.
Day Job? Night Job? What do you do? My official job title is Jig Setter at a Truss and House Frame manufacturer, but because I’ve been trained to operate almost every piece of equipment we have - jigs and tables, automated saws - I’m usually the poor shmuck who fills in for people who don’t show up for work.
Favourite pastime outside of gaming? Motor racing events. Anything from V8 Supercars to Drifting. Living only 25 minutes from Winton Motor Raceway is great for catching some tire frying action, and occasionally even getting out onto the track myself.
Your having Dinner tonight and have 3 Guests (alive or Dead) to invite, Who are they and why?
1- Chris Cornell (Soundgarden/Audioslave/solo)
2- James Hetfield (Metallica)
3- Boyd Coddington (Hot Rod legend)
I chose these three for obvious reasons, Chris and James are musicians who have written some of the best songs ever in my opinion. James is also a car and bike enthusiast, which is where Boyd Coddington also fits into the equation, being the premier hot rod fabricator in the world today.
If you could have one thing in this world, what would it be? Freedom to do what I’d like to do, instead of what a need to do (work).
Lowlights would be the frustration involved in playing with a shocking ping - emptying and entire clip into an opposition player only to have them turn on you and kill you, and then discovering not a single hit registered
My favorite highlight involved the game CrossFire. 6v6 Castle S&D. My team took the obvious route to Site B down the right hand side of the map, while I decided to be a sneaky bugger and take an alternate route to attack the defenders from behind. Somehow I manage to kill the entire defending team from behind while they were focused on the rest of my team.
How long have you been a TOG? Since the start of September 2010
Other games you play apart from BC2? Anything from the Need For Speed franchise. CrossFire (free FPS).
How long have you been playing BC2? Maybe a month before joining TOG.
Favourite kit? That seems to change a little depending on how I feel like playing at the time. Assault with Saiga and C4 seems to be working for me at the moment.
Favourite Weapon? 40mm Grenade lol
Funniest BC2 Moment? Oasis - Rush - 1st MComs - Defender. Moved up the map a little way and was hiding behind a rock (as you do) about halfway up the rise on the right. There’s a set of rocks there with a palm tree planted right in a little corner. Somehow I managed to crouch down between the tree and the rock… and got stuck! Jumping, crouching, sprinting and twisting was all pointless, I was stuck good. I waited a few moments, sure that an enemy would find me and ‘help’ me out of my little prison, but none were to be seen, so a suicide was on the cards.Instead of hitting the Enter key and doing it the painless way, I decided it would be more amusing to drop a grenade at my feet. Unbeknown-st to me, a squad member, also a togger, decided to use me as a spawn point at the very moment I let the grenade go… you can see where this is heading… the palm tree, my squad mate and I all died in the explosion.
Hmmmm I’d have to say GPL33ster while he was still being a shotgun noob haha
Easiest Opponent? None of them are easy…
Dumbest BC2 moment? See Funniest BC2 moment.
Game improvements, what would you like to see improved?
A “DO NOT REZ” option on the respawn screen.
