Hello everyone! Flashman440 is the handle I took on when I started gaming and that was it. Sir Harry Paget Flashman was the bully in Tom Browns school days and was the antihero in a series of novels by George McDonald Fraser. He is a flawed soldier, a scoundrel and a coward so I liked how it fitted caus I was a crap player and if I did any good it was more luck than skill. (only an average player now but enjoy playing and improving) The 440 is from the 440 Chrysler engine used in the Jensen Interceptor car which I lusted after for a bit. I am interested in FPS games mostly, BF4, Insurgency, but lately CSGO which is the reason you find me here. I started playing CSGO to improve my aim and general game sense and have got a bit hooked on it. I have been taking it a bit more seriously and seeing as friends I played BF4 with are not interested in it, I have been solo queing competitive. Some games are great but some are not; and tonight I got stuck with a greifer and it was the tipping point. I have played against TOG members in BF3 and 4 and have admired the way the guys played together and also was impressed by the numbers that would be there most nights. I hope I should be able to find someone near my level or willing to play with a gold nova skrub so I can try and improve my game. My steam and origin name are Flashman440. As a child of the 60's - 70's I remember having some tennis game that you played on the TV, I think people call it pong or as an arcade game it was called pong. Total crap really but the first electronic game I ever played. I loved Galager and Asteroids and would go down to AP's in Fremantle with my spare change to play after school. I have played a couple of simulator games WW1 and WW11 aircraft but only started online gaming three or four years back. I was a member of a clan but everyone has sort of gone their own way with the poor launch of BF4 so I only keep in touch with a few of the guys. Born a Sandgroper (West Australian) and still living in the Perth area, diesel mechanic by trade and passing it on as a technical trainer. Married with a couple of kids. Thats Me, I play a couple of nights during the week and have a couple of decent sessions on the weekend most weeks.
